Being accused

Philippines
January 19, 2013 2:52am CST
Just this morning, I message someone in a classified ads website and offered something related to the one he is seeking. Then this person, instead of accepting or rejecting my offer, mentioned several things about my reliability as well as legitimacy of the one I am offering, then he also asked some proofs that would reinforced that I am not a scammer. It really pissed me off like hell, its like having a volcano inside my head that will about to burst. Instead of stressing myself like hell and prove to him about my legitimacy, I just ignored him and move on with my life. Did I do the right thing?

Oh no! The person is just right, he's asking for security reason. If you we're in his shoes, you would also be asking things like that specially for online workers to avoid being scammed right? You need to learn to weigh things before you get pissed off because it will affect any situation you got into.

Well, if your in my shoes, you will also find his approach very rude and to some extent very judgmental.

I'm sorry to hear that. Well, I guess it's good that you just didn't answer back. But it would have been better if you gave him everything he ask to disappoint his doubts.

You really can not blame that person if he wanted to have some proofs that you were legit. You know how many scammers have invaded the virtual world. It might somehow left you feeling annoyed, but they also need to know that they are really dealing with a legit transaction.

Second this. But i think you were also right in moving on. You can't blame the person if they are asking for proof {I might do the same}, this is the online world after all. But If you really like him, move on.

Well, perhaps you both are correct in verifying my legitimacy. But I tell you, his approach is really not that appropriate. Its like asking and at the same time, criticizing me.

You did exactly the right thing. I think he was trying to obtain information about you. There are so many different schemes going on out there. When in doubt, punt.

Its really a good thing that I have ignored this person. Besides, what will I get from him If ever I will give him what he wants, it is already evident that he is not interested in my offer.

Maybe the person does not do it in the proper way. We can also ask something about the legality of a certain thing in a nice manner. You just did the right thing. Have a nice day!

You did the right thing. But you know, I can't blame that person for acting like that. Because nowadays, it's really hard to trust and convince yourself about everything around you. That person just wanted to make sure that he wouldn't scammed. :)

There are a lot of people who are paranoid because of scammers online. It is difficult to trust another person and you will almost doubt if they do good to you. I certainly understand how you feel. I know you just want to give a hand but instead you were accused of something. Just try to understand them as they might experience something like this before.

Dude, "Patient" most of us scared to be scam by sites, and we don't want to spend our time to one site that we're not sure if we are going to get paid by it right? just prove it to him or her, that is always I do when i'm going to get some referrals to some sites, they said that "are you sure you'l get paid?","do you have any payment of proof?" those are always their questions that they usually ask when you're going to ask someone to join under you,

I think he/she didn't accuse you. He want proof about the things you offered to them. Online opportunity is not a joke. You can be true even you are false. In you side, you are faithful about your offer but their mind you are scamming them.
