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!!!!
