Just a few words...
And if you know my by now I am not a woman of few words. But tonight, I was trying to work on a way to organize all my pictures I have of the scammers I've encountered the last 3+ years. I decided to set up a database so I can access the picture easier.
As I work on this and look at all the pictures I have collected, I think to myself, 30+ years ago I could have been one of these women who would have sent these boneheads money. Feeling lonely and desperate for love. I was like that once. To admit it out loud and write about it on here for all the world to read is not easy. I am thankful that the internet and social media wasn't around back then. I could have easily fallen prey to these boneheads.
I truly do understand how women could fall for the sweet talk and them telling you how beautiful you are. If it's not something you rarely or ever hear.
I did marry in 1996. I was never really happy. It wasn't what I thought marriage to be. Maybe I just fantasized too much of what it should be. More likely I married the wrong man. It happens ladies. And it's okay. I learned so much from it. I learned what I would and wouldn't put up with. It made me a much stronger person. Maybe a little hard sometimes. I always joke that I never want to marry again but I love going to weddings and receptions. But that is true. I do love weddings and receptions.
My point of sharing this information about me to you all??? Well I do have a fun fun time messing with these guys. I love being creative in my responses to them. I love all the crazy ways I go to advertise it. I love sending out cards and letters about my blog to the media. Yes I want to go on the Ellen show. I want more of my local radio stations to talk to me about. Why?
Besides my charming personality, this is an important issue. These romance scammers have to be stopped. I can't stop them by myself. But I like to think I am doing my part by sharing all the stories and conversations I have with these boneheads so women (and men) can see how they talk to you and how they are only after your money. I am very serious in this fight but I want you all to enjoy it as well.
So, my point of this post is yes I love doing this and have so much fun and will continue to make it fun for everyone, but this is also serious and in NO WAY am I ever making fun of this or to anyone who falls for their schemes
Ladies remember this and repeat it yourself every day:
I AM BEAUTIFUL!!
I AM SMART!!
I LOVE LIFE!!
I LOVE MYSELF!!
I AM WORTH MUCH!!
SCREW YOU BONEHEAD, YOU CAN'T HAVE MY MONEY!!!!
Ok, so this was longer than I planned. What can I say? I'm a gabber!
So now I have more stories to work on. My phone was blowing up today with new "boyfriends" who want my money (that I don't have). LOL!!!!
Yep, he said that. I mean I know I'm beautiful. LOL!!! I was at lunch conversing with this dude and just when I was letting him have it a friend came by and we chatted for awhile and when I came back, he blocked me. No more fun with this guy. Oh well. There is always another one. So enjoy...
I moved on to Plenty of Fish (POF). I
have several POF stories but I have to tell you the one that just happened this
week. So I go through the pictures and profiles and saw a
guy who looked cute and had a decent profile.So I figured what the heck I’ll send a flirt.He responded back right away and we exchanged
several messages over 2 days.He said he
was in the army special forces and right now he was stationed in St.
Louis.He is from Valley Park.My first question I asked is what high school
he went too.He told me JFK High
School.So I checked and that high
school is in St. Louis.Okay, so that
may be true.As we chatted he mentioned
be stationed here and I should have asked where, instead I said oh are you at
Jefferson Barracks and he said yes.My
goof there.Supposedly he has an 8 year
old daughter who lives in KC and is being taken of while he is here.He said his wife was killed in a car accident
five years ago.So a day later he says I
should get a google account and get hangout ap…
