Do you have 50 bucks? Give it to me and I’ll give you 50 thousand! Thanks, but, I need 200 more before I can give it to you. No reely? (This is a good start for the use of my license plate “REELY”) You can hook them, but, can you reel them in?
I once fell for a million dollar scam just until they asked for my personal information. That was a few years ago. How did I fall for it again? Either I am stupid, desperate or over trustworthy. Are they all the same. I guess I could have those qualities. Or perhaps I had a couple beers. Who knows. My wife of course. She unloaded all over me and not with an app.
Maybe it wasn’t a scam and I just was too stupid (possibly).
This person? (Mike Weirsky) on Instagram sent me message saying that he was going to give me 50k cash. All I had to do was send his Agent” a 50 buck “Amazon” card. So I sent him a picture of a card with a verifying code. As much it killed me, I said, it’s only a couple cases of beer. Then they told me they needed 200 bucks to get it delivered. That was going too far. I tried to talk them out of it, but, they had to have it. Now if you have a box of 50k cash couldn’t you steal a hundred dollar bill. No one would notice. So I told them all I had was 32 dollars. THEY SAID OKAY! That was shocking. By this time my beautiful wife caught wind of this scam and I was ordered to cease and desist. So, I had to give up. I tried to tell the dynamic duo and both of them kept begging me like they had to get rid of the money or something. Maybe they were insisting on being nice? I could have used the money to get some of my inventions patented. But, I had to listen to #1 and not two blokes.
Then recently I had another scammer trying to get money I can’t afford. This time it was a “fake Adele” who read my comment to Adele (my hero) and tried to sucker/scam me in. I sure hope famous people are aware that these scammers are using famous names to lure people like me to give them money and it all adds up or down.
