A simple phone call, email or text, saying “Look what I just found” and sharing this information may make a difference in someone else’s life.It would be great if these could be generated in an easily printed format.First of all, why would someone ask a stranger to accept a 00 check? The check was deposited to a new account just for that purpose.The following day the bank told me the check was fake. I was able to contact the supposed sender that lives I Maryland.Wish they could be caught half as easily as they seem to catch their would be victims.I also met this gentleman on the TAGG website, who calls himself Johnson Smith.We talked for about two days, before he gave me the story about bad food over there, and he needed money to buy American food, and it was expensive.
We chatted for a little while, and he suggested a different website (Whats App) to continue talking.Anyway he denied all and had accused me of stealing his money! No one deployed overseas in a hot spot should be using a dating site. My would be scammer asked me to let his bank wire his money into my account to save it from being confiscated.At least I recognized that as a variant of the Nigerian scam. Correspondingly, a scammer is that very bearded Boris who starts a quick Internet-affair and then asks for money. Did you know that "recently the word" scam is understood in ex Soviet Union without the translation, and it has a specific meaning online dating in the Internet for swindling money.I have been getting chatted up by a guy called Wilfred Joe, who claims to work on oil rigs and has a young son called Wilson.
