Should I Cheat For Him?

I met someone in a paying chat room site who considered me as a friend. Today I received a private message from him and he's requesting me to talk to the admin of that site to make me his referral which is quite impossible. When I told him that such request is impossible, he told me to sign up for another ID under his name and chat for an hour. But that would be cheating because i will be using the same ip address. But he told me he has done the same and it's alright to do that and i should do it for the sake of friendship. Would you do it for someone who thinks you are his friend?

No, as I think that an actual friend of mine would not ask me to cheat, especially after pointing out that there is a risk of your account being deleted. I would question the level of friendship this person had with me as I would not ask this of any of my friends who work honestly and are trying to earn. Hope all goes well.

Hello toni, Sad to a say but the word friends/friendship becomes a cliche when talking on chat rooms specially in paying chat rooms and private rooms in the internet. Many are claiming that they are friend and thus they like us to be with and those wonderful words of friendship to start with but as the conversations goes on true colors appears gradually and the worst may be they are just friends for income sake. They tend to use your ability and goodness is chatting for them to accelerate their earnings too but do they have to do that? Can they reciprocate such kind in other way? Or they are just too vocal for their own benefit that makes them not to be intimidated at all. In Filipino term "kapalmuks" Is their an English term for that? For the question you raised no. Still Happy myLotting!!!!

What's so funny is that he is still convincing me until now and he would say, "Please do it for your brother, just do it!"

I think he is trying to use you to make money. Why would someone who thinks you are his friend ask you to cheat for him?

That's the right word to explain it! He's trying to use me to earn money without caring about my reputation in that site at all.

If you think it's illegal to do so, then don't. You don't have to do something like that just for friendship. If he treats you like a real friend, he wouldn't put you in jeopardy.

Hi Toni, Friends are not supposed to do such things. They are the ones who should help you stay the right way not cheat someone... I would say he is not worth a friend. And definitely never cheat anyone or anything... coz at end it is you deceiving yourself... give in today and then always!? Cheers, theSids.

Thank you, friend! And you are right! Friends should never tell me to do things for them selfishly. I don't have any intention of destroying my good reputation, so i told him i don't want to take that risk. He is still insisting until now.

[b]hello toniganzon..I think this friend is being selfish..a real friend doesn't teach another friend cheating or anything that would result bad.Tell your friend that this might get you into trouble..the rules and terms are clearly stated. have a great day!

you shouldn't trust that easy, if his really your friend he wouldn't let you do that thing to you coz his just using you for his own personal gain.

I guess if u wanna really help him... ask him how much he expects to earn from u being his referral for an hour... Pay Him from u r money....Tell him that u ll not entertain such a cheating in coming days...I guess he should learn how to earn in a Truthful manner

Indeed you are correct but i didn't want to sound rude to him. So i just told him i don't want to risk my good reputation on that site.

You are right! Why would i cheat, even if we are truly friends.

Personally I would not risk the chance if it was me. I would probably refuse to want to talk with him again and move on to talking with someone else. For me, it would not be worth the chance of getting caught and ruining my name and reputation, etc. and personally if this person really liked you they would not want you to cheat for something like this. If they want you to cheat here, how can they really ever be anyone you would want to know in person?

If I were you, I'd start avoiding that kind of "friend". He is obviously using you for a specific need. I wouldn't dance to his kind of music if it does not sound good to me.

I would never cheat for someone else. the consequences can be too great. the risks to take would not be worth the trouble. If someone wants to cheat, that is a burden they must bear. they should not ask you to take it on as well.

Well, friends would mean protecting you from any harm and keeping you in the good path. For that kind of person teaching you to cheat would be so far to be called a friend. He or she is trying to black mail you of something and trying to exploit your weakness and in return gaining something for himself or herself.

Ask yourself WHY should you? What is in it for you? Has he considered the implications if both of you are caught? Are you willing to lose it all for a "friend"? In here, we use the word "friend" loosely, so you have to define what kind of friend he is. He thinks you are friend, you take him as friend too? Would he do the same for you? Why not ask him to?

i would do that for my friend but if he was really your friend he wouldnt say that if you are his friend you must do that. i dont agree with his way to talk to you. i think that he should be sweet and ask if you dont mind to do that for him bcs that would help him much :) that way yes it shows he is a sweet friend but talking like if you dont do that then you are a bad friend or something i dont think is the best approach. anyway do that for him :) if he says he is your friend is bcs he likes you so do that^^

For me it is okay because they want you to be friend only.

It's okay to cheat? That would mean i would lose my premium membership if i get caught and i would lose my investment too. I think you didn't get what the discussion is all about friend.

No! He is only befriended you to get a referral. I guess he has done it for several ties on women and it worked well.

I think you have the answer to that question already. Whether or not one cheats is a matter of one's moral and ethical values because one has to suffer the consequences of one's cheating. To cheat for another is simply foolish. It's your choice.
