He also seemed kind of normal, professional even, but I think he picked up on the fact that I was innocent.
He started texting/emailing me saying he's 'purchasing materials' for me, worth $100, (in before-hand), and I actually bought into it and paid him!
Without asking for a receipt, or even properly asking what it was.
He later kept agreeing to meet me, and 'teach' me things, (he prepared nothing, but just used to talk).
Now the reason I paid, and put up with him, is because I really, really needed some help in my resume/job search hunts. I think he realized this.
He kept saying he thought I had a shot at the job we were preparing for, (when I asked), yet he never saw my transcript, (he just asked me for my grades), and I figured if he ripped me off so much, then well, he likely thought I was dumb or something along those lines?
He was also really insulting at times, like he'd count the money in front of me, or say he had emailed me receipts, and never actually give me anything. He also said he couldn't 'keep meeting me like this,' as though I was wasting his time when I fucking paid the dude.
Ugh I'm so mad... the embarrassing part is I did enjoy our sessions, because I was so bored and jobless at that time that at least they gave me some direction.
I wonder if he thought I was really clueless and maybe even in love with him or something, because I'm assuming a guy like that would think likewise.
