My purpose here is to help other women. I know many women who have been scammed out of thousands of dollars and it needs to stop. I also use this site as an investigative tool as that is what I have done for many years, investigate scammers. It is very important to get the word out to both men and women who are not privey to scammers and how they work. This site is wonderful and many more people need to see and use this as their own tool to help them. Thank you all for your wonderful insites and information.

I like many was a victim of a scammer too. After 5 months and lots of money, I finally found this site and found all the pict's and info I needed.

After months of sadness, pain, frustration, anger and not being able to retaliate, I did what everyone said to do, just forget and go on. I'm still looking and on a personals website, but have had no luck at all.

Now I am on here trying to help others from being scammed and help them through the tough times.

Good luck to all in finding someone, and thanks to all of you for a great site!

Still Looking

Postby kia08 » Tue Jul 01, 2008 12:50 pm

Since I have been scammed I am very careful. I always try to get an email first so I can check the ip address. I was only going to talk to people that were in my state, thought that was the best way to go. Until yesterday I was talking to someone I thought lived in my state,got an email.. And guess what he's not local. I am still going to look. I am not going to let them stop me from doing what I want to do.

It has been close to a year for me since I got burned big time.I licked my wounds and yes they still hurt and I hope everybody involved will burn in hell.There real honest genuine people out there looking for the same thing we are and we all know what that is it is mutual love happiness and respect or maybe I should have wrote more on my profile but I found the one I really think I have visited her and will go back soon.

Where have I been? Duhhh, just noticed this thread. Oh well. I'm "sorta" looking if that makes any sense. Not too trusting anymore. Getting older in age, but still young and active. Live a very full life here on the farm, at work, and looking for the next Wrattwarliar to tease. I know there are many wonderful men/women on this site and feel so at home here. Thanks to everyone for the humor you add to my life. As an ER nurse, somedays I need a good laugh.
Life is wonderful when you PLUG it in!

I am still looking. In fact, while I was being scammed I also had been contacted by someone locally. We did meet and had a great visit over coffee and we are planning to get together again. We have both been really busy so we have yet to do that but we are both looking forward to it.

It seems that I wasn't as devastated by my scammer as I had originally thought. There was always a feeling that 'he' wasn't what he said he was and it all sounded a little too...much. Fortunately, I was affected emotionally, not financally...I would never have parted with any money, even if I had it to spare. Incredibly, I think this experience made me much more aware about my feelings and desires. I know much more about what I want as far as relationships go. That to me has been a huge benefit from this experience. :)

I think i've found him :)

I was scammed earlier this year and thankfully to a number of sites, i got over this fairly quickly - baiting helped :)

Whilst i was talking to my scammer i was also talking with another man (let call him febman). I met him in Feb but basically told him that i was communicating with someone else. He made it clear that he wanted more from me but was happy to be friends. Then of course, late March, I realised i was being scammed so i didn't keep in touch with anyone cause well..i was just not ready to talk at that stage. :cry: I dropped everything/one like a hot spud for about a month, whilst i self assessed!!

What amazed me at first was that Febman was still contacting me and instead of getting rude or angry that i wasn't responding, he actually showed worry and concern in his YIM' mid April i figured i'd talk to him at least.

In between getting to know him, i was baiting these scammers - in a fairly methodical way :) i remember the healing that occurred with my first bait :grin: words can't describe that here....but i'm sure some if not most, know what i mean. I've done several of these and will continue to do so as a community service.

Well, its been 3months with febman and things are progressing wonderfully! :love: He has met some of my friends, and likewise..

I did take a sabatical from baiting to concentrate on this new relationship...but i will return to it! I applaud all of you who do this!! There are sooo many of them!
Never fear....reel 'em in and slap 'em is what i say :twisted:
