TOTALLY agree with you, Kam. Someone is brave enough to tell us how they got scammed - to keep the rest of us from falling for it - and gets ridiculed. What some don't understand is that the robbers are getting more and more sophisticated in their approach and it can be very easy to get sucked in. I won't go back over what happened to hubby, but it was 50% luck/50% timing. When one falls, it just makes them that more determined to continue.

If someone asks you for money, no matter how convincing, try to remember to ask a question that only the real person would know. I'm really sorry for what happened to you, Camille.
