Many people do not understand how scammers are able to fool people, and all victims feel hurt and embarrassed after they realize what has happened to them. It's good if you have a friend or family member that you can trust to express your emotions to. This helps in your recovery process. If any victims here have no one to lean on, the members here are always ready to listen and help you cope. Please visit our Victim Support and Advice forum. You are never alone here. There, you can also lend a few kind and encouraging words to other members who are experiencing the same problems and feelings.

..Because I consider myself very wise to the way the game is played, I did not tell anyone - And because the "relationship" was so serious and real to me (in which money was involved), once I realized what was happening/ had happened, I simply returned to work telling my peers that I got cold feet.
- just too embarassing ~ Agh! ..life..you live and you learn..and then realize you're never as smart as you think you are ~
Truth. I am still unsure if I will tell anyone yet. I told only a few people about the "relationship" to begin with and only that I had met someone and was talking to him. Nothing about how serious I felt about it or that I lost money because of it. I just didn't talk about this much to anyone...which is not a good thing because then you never know and if you have any doubts at all they are able to work around your objections with relative ease....as well as other emotional manipulation. Chapter closed on that, new one started in dealing with the fall-out
