Q & A

I was conned today. Have you ever thought you were being so careful and end up in such a position? I feel so stupid and numb from this experience.

    • I’m so sorry that it happened to you! I can say that I can be gullable but I just don’t suspect people first. So I don’t think you‘re stupid at all!

    • Don’t fret nor kick yourself, we’ve all played the fool at some point in our lives and for those who haven’t had the experience just keep on living. I just hope it wasn’t something so huge that it cost you a lot, but from here on out be more aware.

    • Dear Friend,  I tend to believe people when they say something to me.  I loaned $350 to someone I thought I could trust and more than two years later I’m still waiting.  I hope you didn’t lose too much, but no that you are human and the one to blame is the one doing the conning.

    • I am a typical New Yorker, I trust no one, end of story. Chalk it up as a lesson learned and be more aware from now on.

    • I sure have! A few times, matter of fact. The last time I saw the con for what it was and
      shut it down. I hope you can recoup your loss and recover yourself quickly.

    • Lived and learned.  It happened to me where I worked.  I worked in a video store and the guy tried the old “I handed you a twenty”  Because we were so busy I just gave him back change for the twenty.  Later I found out that I was coned.  I informed my boss and we checked the store camera and called the police.  Come to find out he was pulling this all around us.  I ended up learning a big lesson and never let it happen to me again.

    • Welcome to the human race!  I also loaned $$ to one of my cousins’ friends, she wasn’t even my friend.  She used the old, me and my husband aren’t getting along, I am 10 weeks pregnant and all I have had today is a coke...blah, blah, blah.  She promised to pay me back and of course never did and I only saw her a couple of times after that.
      Don’t be too hard on yourself.  It happens to the best of us.

    • Take the lesson and learn.  I am like everyone else and been conned by “friends” and even a former member of my church so now I trust only a select few but sometimes I have to be a blessing too and extend my faith.  Take care and stop beating yourself up.

    • Like everyone else says - don’t be too hard on yourself.  I think it is better to be trusting in our fellow human beings that to be so jaded that you trust none.  You life in the end will be much happier.

      Remember - what goes around comes around - both for you and the con artist.  Wouldn’t you rather have trust coming around to you?
