I searched for the name of the person that my scammer wanted me to send $4000 to and this site was the first one that came up.
I had spent a month googling everything he told me and never finding anything. I found it hard to believe that anyone could be as invisible online as he was.
Slappy was the first to welcome me here, and was so helpful, though at first I did not always take his advice. I soon learned how resourceful Firefly is, especially with those image searches. And Pinky, with her compassion.
Then AN. And Wayne, at first just to set up the radio program.
My first friend (besides the moderators) from the site (and now co-baiter) was duckhunter. I happened to be in the chat room when someone she cares about who was being scammed came in, and she sent me a PM thanking me. It was the first time I'd ever visited the chat room, and it was a very unusual session!
Then I met Red Wing, marym, Ruffled Feathers, and others I've really enjoyed.
I had no idea I'd find a hobby here, or that lying (baiting) could be so easy and so much fun.
Let's see, am I forgetting anyone?
Of course not. I could never forget Frumpy. When I was first here, and still vulnerable, Frumpy and Slappy were the ones who made the most difference to me, through PM sessions and support....even before they started teaching me to bait.
And Frumpy was so excited about the radio that I think he'd have crawled through the internet pipe to be at the station if he could have.
I came because my search for my scammer led me here.
I posted because I wanted to help others through this site, in the same way that it helped me.
I've stayed because I found amazing people here who give so much of their time just to make a difference to others when they've needed it most.
