I think I’ve mentioned before that I recently moved to a place with a pub (bar) in it.
Today I met someone, around sixty I’d say [not certain exactly cause as I said I’ve met him today first], who is being contacted by a thirty year old from ghana with gorgeous pictures. They met on a dating website.
Frankly I don’t even need to spell out to anyone with a brain what’s going on. They’ve never spoken over webcam, nor on phone. I did sorta subtley hint that this was indistinguishable from scams, and he did sorta agree. But his plan is to not send them any money until they come here. In a twist, he actually has no money basically, due to being on the local equivilant of what you call disability.
So he may get away with it with nothing but hurt feelings. But there’s equally a big chance of them nicking a massive proportion, relatively speaking, of his “wealth”.
I just dunno what to do. Like I said today is the first time I’ve met the guy and I can’t exactly lecture him on stuff.
Any experience of this kind of thing?
