Me too. So far so good.
Iím not sure if I would spend hundreds of dollars though under the same circumstances. Thatís a little much for me.

I kinda see his point. There's no excuse for people falling for this constant new guy wanting PP gift, communication off site, and seems to have just what you want. Seems people really want something and will roll the dice. If people quit doing that, then the guy would eventually stop coming back. Kinda frustrating to watch people reward the guy. It is minimal effort to sign up and post replies to wanted ads, but still requires some effort and they wouldn't bother over time if it was fruitless, as it should be.

All the rest of the "a new type of scam" constantly returning scammer red flags were there. Every now and then they must get really hard up for whatever xxx they're doing, and accept goods and services payment. Probably using it for the short term loan thing.

IMHO for the first time in any posts you are correct. Your 15 years of mostly obnoxious single sentence caustic observations don’t mean squat, at least not to me. My post simply relates to your element of exposer for scam. To observe the game is one thing, to be a player in the game is another.

You have no idea what my 15 years of posting has involved. You're speaking about something you haven't a single clue about.
