A quote I like..."The best defense is not to offend". In other words, I am going to use another word or phrase in my post. Instead of "stupid", I prefer, "not smart". And I'm new in the forums, so I wanna be careful. But I see things like this. Scamming is a like business, albeit a corrupt business. But think of it similar to marketing. The scammers are marketing a false product in order to gain a return of some sort. In most cases, your hard earned money. These folks think they're downright clever. They will seek out the weak ones to prey on. Once they realize you're not weak, they will go away. Most, if not all these scammers have a psychological disorder termed sociopath or psychopath. More than likely sociopath. These people lie in order to reach a specific goal, and don't care who they hurt on the way.
I think this is a good website that can help to educate people of the dangers of online dating. I believe researching a topic and knowing your opponent(s) can make you a winner. So if you're "not smart" enough to realize that certain people and websites are out to trick you into opening your wallet for them, then you deserve to get ripped off.
If there's any way I can help anyone in this forum, don't hesitate to ask.
