I'm usually a person who tries to take the positives from something negative. So naturally, after being faked/scammed, I took a day or two to regroup my thoughts and redirect my anger. Decided to redirect it the most constructive way possible--to post on here about my Scammer.
I had originally found the site because I was trying to figure out what I needed to do to protect myself (I didn't want to do anything stupid) and a couple days later, I wrote about my encounter. Then I fell in love with this place because it is very helpful in calming the nerves of many who have been abruptly disappointed and even shamed.
It's been good therapy and I hope to turn my experience into something worthwhile so that I didn't suffer for nothing. "No pain, no gain" right? Plus, I'm a smarter gal now... knowing a bit more about email IP addresses, faking video chats, common habits of scammers, etc. I have always been a cautious girl but now I know what to look for thanks to RS.
