I wish scammers will get real job!
There are similarities in scam money loss situation and we all know how it feels to be robbed . I was still angry a week later btw, I am glad to be able to post about it .That sucks Ben - I'm still new to this, so haven't had any stubborn ones yet...
An update to one that a couple people knew about -
I had a nice YIM with a lady who lost 5k the other afternoon (single mom, on unemployment, saving for school) - she showed up here on AFI to see what she could do to get her money back.
After an explanation why the money is gone, and pointing her to fraudaid she was still hoping that an imminent arrest would be made and she'd get her money back.
I tried to gently remind her the money was gone and she was just going to have to move forward -
the bank was nice enough to let her make payments towards the 3k she owed them (wiped out her 2k savings), instead of taking her to court which was their first option...
Send us some examples. See if you can get him to look through this site. There are THOUSANDS of examples here. If your father has lost that much, he is definately a target and needs some help. He will never see that money again.My father is involved in a series of scams but does not believe it. He has already lost $55K and continues to deal with these souless promisers of big fortune. He is convinced (brain-washed) by them to the point to where he lives in a fantasy world that I can't penetrate.
You said it Trickster, ever since the aliens have invade my inbox, my life has stopped to consentrate on demoralizing the critters but then again if they hadn't invaded and dropped by, I would never have found this site and the genuine wonderful people here@ Trickster "We all hate them. We all get tired of seeing them. We all get tired of posting them, but we do it anyway because it needs to be done. But we hate scamming. None of us would be here if we didn't"
& DDBI suppose the most frustrating part is that I cannot see the faces of the scammers after we have put them in Jail
Why not both? out they come, slap! out they come slap again, and then another for luck, and then JailI would just be content with seeing their face when we bring them out in the open....and start slapping them!
