    Dating scam

    Iread that a Norwegian woman fell in love with a man online , transfered around 85-90k USD (!) to a man in Equador and was told to transport suitcase with unknown contents , suitcase contained 3 kilos drugs (now there's a surprise huh) and now she might be looking at 15 yrs in jail , on top of the money she lost.

    I heard a woman in th US was ripped off 500k in another dating scam.

    Things like this could happen all the time. Even dating websites cannot be trusted nowadays.

    Simple curiosity trying to take a bite of me
    Let me show you just what I'm made of now...

    To be honest, you DO have to be an imbecile to transfer that kind of money to someone you don't even know. I don't know how these things end up in the news. If it was me, I'd be way too embarassed about my own gullibility to tell anyone what happened.

    It also might be she's pretending to be innocent and actually part of a drug ring........

    That is just sad. Why would anyone transfer money to someone they don't even know and never met? After the Manti Te'o dating scam, people should be a little more leery of online relationships.
    “Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” ― Apple Inc.
