Is it just me, or does everyone else on here get contacted by what I believe to be a potential Scam?
I have had a few that give all the obvious signs of doing so. You know, they immediately want your email, and after only a few messages they're asking for money.
Who's foolish enough to be sucked into crap?
Are there Any real people on this site?

In todays environment, we're encouraged to "help" people without using any judgement whatsoever. If they look a certain way, wear certain clothes, act a certain way, you give them money. You are not allowed to use your instincts. Furthermore we are encouraged to "forgive." Everything. There will be more and more scammers, and less punishment for those caught. If they even are caught. If they even are reported. I could say a whole lot more. but i'll leave it at that.

I get these in emails all the time. I mess with them and tell them they have to send an ATM card with the pin and they will pay fees and postage. They want you to believe that you have to pay for postage even for them to send you an ATM card worth millions and for some reason they also require your name and life history. ANd let's not forget that they may "need" your bank name, and account number in order to transfer millions into your account. I string them along and get mean with them. The funny thing is the nastier I get the more they want to do business with me. They must be twisted as well as stupid.dunno

Yes, had one tried to scam me...now on another site I think the same person is trying to set me up. Sure is giving these sites a bad name.

Heck, I don't think there's any where online scammers don't exist.

Email, social media, all the same with technology. The best any one can do, is to try to be careful with your choice of contacts and any information you choose to share.

I sometimes stay away from almost all internet any thing except maybe email and research for long periods of time.

It doesn't take long when I re-enter to start getting the email addresses and phone numbers, often from far away.

I think my biggest concern is that there's a possibility that at least one out of an untold number could actually be a legitimate person making and effort of some sort. There's no way to tell any of that with out doubt, because of the way internet is used. There's more that keeps most of us apprehensive than relaxed.
