    Behind this box everything is possible! it could be more than one person it could be she or he, a black or a Caucasian, but in all the cases always have at least one son or daughter, divorced or widow… but above everything wants o married and once engage he or she will find a way to ask you for money.
    Ah! when we try to ask me to show himself or her self they don’t have a camera or this doesn’t work.Do you still believe that the picture you see in the profile is the same as the mask he uses every day? I don’t think so.

      The point we are making is to help those fixated on an identity. To help people understand what you don’t know and in some cases may be unknowable. Better to focus on yourself and recover than fixate on the scammer.
