my friend is constantly being scammed

Postby ClaireM » Sat Feb 17, 2018 7:56 pm

he is infatuated w/ a woman who was & is a porn star. i only found this out cos i thought it was a bit odd he kept mentioning this stunning gf he has who nobody has ever seen. he's brain-injured & looks completely normal. we both live in a care facility. he can do everything i can't. i suffer w/ anxiety & staff always get him for it.

i think him & i are some of the few residents who actually get on & like each other, i literally get on w/ 2 others, everyone else is so difficult i just can't be bothered w/ them & the feeling's mutual – i've been living here for nearly 6 yrs & i can't see it changing. he is exactly the same so i can see why he's been taken in by this person tho all he ever talks re is her huge boobs, how hot she is etc.

he actually thinks she'll visit him, that they'll get married, & he'll leave but of course she never turns up. nobody ever visits him. he has been taken in by this “woman” countless times. the 1st time he threatened to kill himself. he doesn't see anything wrong w/ what he is doing, nor does he see how silly it all sounds, but then he doesn't believe he's injured unless it suits him. he lives online, does banking online etc.

staff say he has full capacity ie knows what he is doing, that they can't stop him, & are not allowed to but i think they should do something. he tells them he thinks the world of me but this must not be true as i don't exist when he believes he's with her. but on the other hand i get on w/ him due to his vivid imagination

what would you do??
stop talking to him??
leave the facility??

Sorry to hear that. Please keep paling the evidence because it's very hard to brake someone from the scam. Soon your friend will thankful to you.

Please show him the following topic : viewtopic.php?f=1&t=47405
to understand better that pictures of this porn star are in hands of Africans and they will defraud him no matter what. Maybe you should speak to the supervisor to oversee the situation. Please be safe!
Confronting the scammer is WRONG!!! DON'T enlighten criminals with your wisdom. REPORT & BLOCK.
PHOTO VICTIM - "Do not confront the owner of the pictures, as they are victims themselves! You will only serve to further the terror and harm !" Silence Is Golden!!! I speak Polish.

staff have tried but supervisor says he has his own mind. he has a terrible temper. i can see exactly why he does it; nobody visits him, he has to make all the effort to see his family/friends rather than them visiting him & most of our fellow inmates act like children. he is lucky he lives in the supported living section so he can get away. he has had to calm me down countless times. he won't let anyone see his phone/laptop either. i am thinking of leaving our facility but i need to find somewhere else to live 1st .
