Very glad your friend listened to the advice that was given to her and that she took them to the police, goodness knows what could have happened to her in the way of her well-being financially if she went ahead and did what was asked of her. There are some very real unpleasant people out there in the big world who are just waiting to take advantage of us innocent people and for some they are not as lucky as your friend. Well done to you and your sister for caring enough to help her out! :) caramello.

Meg I am so happy that you and Lols have managed to get her to do this. At least this way she won't go through what my Son went through. If they are Genuine then fair do but I would be very suprised if they are. Well done Girls. Hugs to you

My mother in law just reported a scam coming from canda to the Canadain police. The scammer was saying she won a contest from Canada. She knew she did not do any contest from Canada. Of course the USA couldn't do anything about. SInce, the scammer claimed they were from out of the country. So I am curious to see if they will catch this scammer. Hopefull, the cops catch both scammers and put them in jail.
