At a Dating site where I joined out of curiousity,of course it’s a site where we find someone to get to know it’s. And if lucky enough, you will find the love of your life in that site. I have met already 4 of different time. I was just wondering why they have same stories yet they don’t know each other. But their stories were...They’re single parent and has a son...always a son no daughter. ?? The son is 12 years old and or 14 yrs old. The in the middle of the conversation/chat they would ask if you love them will you also love their son. And of course my response is YEs. Then starts the drama like I’m her in the middle of the sea. I can’t call cause it might cause an explosion etc. and of course I worry about that. Then the finally is asking me to send their son $300... and will pay me as soon as they get back in a month. I feel so disgusted. Even if I’m rich I won’t gamble on that drama. So I stopped communicating with them and blocked them instead. 4 different characters of the same job and same stories. Ridiculous. We have to be aware with these people.

Even though my instagram is on private account mode, I'd receive messages from a lot of males having a profile pic and photos with their sons. Same thing all the time. I never entertained them at all. I guess they believe that they are seen as a responsible loving person when they have a child with them. I think those photos aren't even theirs at all.

That is so ridiculous indeed! I hate most people who leech off others. If they had spent their time doing decent jobs instead of scamming people they could have earned more. I feel sorry for anyone who gets victimised by these low lifes.

There will always be scammers as long as there are those who will fall for their scams.

Yup. Scammers seem to appear with similar tactics. Once you figure out their pattern, you will avoid them at all cost.

You need to play back the same game with them right in the same moment saying I too fallen off in some trouble, So could you give me 100 dollar and I would return you as soon I back to home.

That's ridiculous! And it's quite evident that they are scammers and all these stories are the fabricated ones... It's unfortunate that we live in the time where trusting someone is so challenging.
