  • I've had it when I looked at my Visa account and found out I took a trip to California and bought a room at some hotel I've never heard of. Also, when I was younger and didn't think much about "free money", a guy asked me if I could take his check and hold it in my account for him and then take out some money and I could keep the rest. It turned out to be a fucked up check and so I had to pay the money back to the bank.

    But after that check incident, I wised up really fast and my trust level with money is more guarded for sure. As well, I'm careful with my CCs and check my statements frequently.

    But either than this, not sure if I've been scammed as such. Although I have a feeling that the greatest scam is still going on in life (overall) and we aren't seeing it or are prevented from seeing it.

  • I've been in a situation couple of times where people have either given me (or my boyfriend to give me) flowers, even if I said no first. They've been like "No no, just take it". When I've accepted the flowers and tried to walk away, they start prying for money for the flowers. This is not exactly what you were talking about probably, but still felt a bit fooled. Haven't fallen for an actual scam, though.

  • I once order a penis enlargement kit and they sent me a microscope so does that count?

    I'm joking by the way :)
    I've never been scammed online but in real life people have over charged me for items.

  • Yes. I had a friend who I trusted at the time, but they were truthfully deceptive, and selfish, and terrible humans.

    They were only friends with me to:

    even out the boy:girl ratio in the circle

    to get closer to my friends circle, the one that had stayed relatively untouched throughout a few school years

    and, I've always been a nice guy, I try and be good to everyone. They realised that they weren't really popular and thought by having me, a person who at least talks to a lot of people, they'd be more popular and boost their egos.

  • no,

    But I have reported scammers to Alaska Airlines, the scammers was trying to look for someone to help with an inheritance for a lost love one on an Airline flight they died on.. only needed my bank account number and they pay me,, of course they wanted to clean out me account.

    I'm sure Alaska Airlines reported to the FBI,, but they are short handed to handle that stuff.
