First off, Happy 2018!!! The fakers and scammers haven't taken a break. They are in full swing. I think in the last week, between Instagram and Twitter I've had about eight guys contact me. LOL!! No worries because I am on FULL alert.
I know a while back I had read and shared with you all to see if they are real to ask them to take a picture of themselves holding up 3 fingers. Well now I ask them to hold a sign up with today's date on it. Of course none of them do it.
Today's contestant, is impersonating a Major General in the Marines. If you google him you will find out stuff about him.
Below is our conversation. And I tried something new this time. :) See if you can see what I did.
Okay, first thing I did was I didn't mess around, I went in for the kill right away. After a few messages I could tell in the language he wasn't real.
Second thing I did was lie about knowing someone in the Marine Corp to contact about him. As you can see he immediately blocked me. This conversation didn't last long at all.
I did email someone at an marine address to tell them about the fake twitter profile especially since this man is highly ranked.
I know I am the perfect target for these scammers. I fit their profile. Just to remind you of what they look for:
- Older women who are single
- Those who seem unattractive (Which I am NOT)
- On the Heavy side (As my grandmother would say, "More to love")
- Lonely (NOT ME)
- Desperate (NOT ME)
Anyone who knows me knows I am not lonely or desperate. I am older, but I am gorgeous and I am on the heavy side but I like me just the way I am.
So if you are reading this, and you think you feel like you are lonely and desperate and don't feel good about yourself? DON'T FEEL LIKE THAT! You are a wonderful person and the right guy will come along. Never let anyone make you feel anything less.
And of course my #1 piece of advise is...
