helping someone who is constantly being scammed??

Postby ClaireM » Tue Mar 20, 2018 7:33 pm

he has a brain injury. he's now on a strict budget which i've always said should have happened ages ago. the reason is he's been in court. he is 37 y/o but he acts like he is 15 y/o. it is quite obvious that this is a scam as he has been waiting for her to arrive for 2yrs but she hasn't done so. he said he's happy w/ his memories of her "for now" i am worried it will all start up again once fine is paid :-o

Please have someone professional to help your friend. We can't provide advice to a person which is not mentally stable, but tray as much as you can to verify the computer activity and perhaps block the pages with potential fraud.Good luck!
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.
