I was scammed earlier this year and thankfully to a number of sites, i got over this fairly quickly - baiting helped
Whilst i was talking to my scammer i was also talking with another man (let call him febman). I met him in Feb but basically told him that i was communicating with someone else. He made it clear that he wanted more from me but was happy to be friends. Then of course, late March, I realised i was being scammed so i didn't keep in touch with anyone cause well..i was just not ready to talk at that stage.
I dropped everything/one like a hot spud for about a month, whilst i self assessed!!
What amazed me at first was that Febman was still contacting me and instead of getting rude or angry that i wasn't responding, he actually showed worry and concern in his YIM's...so mid April i figured i'd talk to him at least.
In between getting to know him, i was baiting these scammers - in a fairly methodical way
i remember the healing that occurred with my first bait
words can't describe that here....but i'm sure some if not most, know what i mean. I've done several of these and will continue to do so as a community service.
Well, its been 3months with febman and things are progressing wonderfully!
He has met some of my friends, and likewise..
I did take a sabatical from baiting to concentrate on this new relationship...but i will return to it! I applaud all of you who do this!! There are sooo many of them!
Never fear....reel 'em in and slap 'em is what i say
