They lay out all the reasons why the person they are talking about is an obvious scammerScammer A Scammer or Fraudster is someone that engages in deception to obtain money or achieve another objective. They are criminals that attempt to deceive a victim into sending more or performing some other activity that benefits the scammer..
Yet they say they do not know if he or she is a scammer!
They want us to prove to them they are not talking to a scammer when they really already know.
Come on people get a clue!

Get It? You Are Talking To A Scammer!
But they want to be convinced because they are truly expecting that by some miracle THEIR fake person MUST be REAL. He must be their knight in shining armor. They must have a happy ending! It just has to be true! But it’s not.
The Online Universe Just Doesn’t Work That Way!
You know you met a scammer or you would not be asking.
Now the only question is this: Are you going to be an adult and do the adult thing or are you going to continue to be a love-struck teen and act irresponsibly?
Look, you are not responsible for being scammed – except for the part of about talking to strangers. Didn’t your mother tell you not to do that? The scammer is responsible for scamming you (even if you didn’t lose any money). However. the minute you recognized the signs YOU became responsible for what follows. Now is the moment when you stop the denialDenial Denial is a refusal or unwillingness to accept something or to accept reality. Refusal to admit the truth or reality of something, refusal to acknowledge something unpleasant; And as a term of Psychology: denial is a defense mechanism in which confrontation with a personal problem or with reality is avoided by denying the existence of the problem or reality., stop the wishful thinking, and face the cold hard truth that you are BEING SCAMMED.
Everything – Yes Everything – You Were Told Was A Lie
You don’t need this sugar-coated. You don’t need someone to pat you on the head and tell you everything will be all right – not right now. Once you have come to your senses and are making the effort to recover is when you need the motivation. Right now you need a kick in the butt and being told to get a grip!
The purpose of this Commentary is to shock you into your senses. To wake you up from the fairy tale sleep that the wicked witch (scammer) placed you under. Now is the time to put your big-boy or big-girl pants on and stand up. Now is the time to say NO MORE!
Now Is The Time To Say You Are Mad As Hell And You Are Not Going To Take It Anymore!
Did we upset you? Did we piss you off? Well good, you need that angerAnger Anger, also known as wrath or rage, is an intense emotional state involving a strong uncomfortable and non-cooperative response to a perceived provocation, trigger, hurt or threat. About one-third of scam victims become trapped in anger for extended periods of time following a scam. A person experiencing anger will often experience physical effects, such as increased heart rate, elevated blood pressure, and increased levels of adrenaline and noradrenaline. Some view anger as an emotion that triggers a part of the fight or flight response. Anger becomes the predominant feeling behaviorally, cognitively, and physiologically. Anger can have many physical and mental consequences. While most of those who experience anger explain its arousal as a result of "what has happened to them", psychologists point out that an angry person can very well be mistaken because anger causes a loss in self-monitoring capacity and objective observability. right at this minute to snap you out of it. You have adult work to do, so get busy!
Accept the simple fact – even though you don’t have proof in triplicate stamped by the Department of Dumb Ideas – that you are talking to one of the over one billion fake identities online – it’s still a scammer
Accept that if you sent this fake identity money, it is gone
Accept that you now have a responsibility to society to help stop this by reporting the scammer – you don’t get to go an hide anymore
Acting responsibly now will help you make up for what has happened to you and help prevent others from becoming victims as well. Isn’t that what you want?
So This Concludes The Foot Stomping Ranting Lecture That You Needed To Hear. Now It Is Up To You To Get A Grip, Grab A Clue, And End The ScamScam A Scam is a confidence trick - a crime - is an attempt to defraud a person or group after first gaining their trust through deception. Scams or confidence tricks exploit victims using their credulity, naïveté, compassion, vanity, irresponsibility, or greed and exploiting that. Researchers have defined confidence tricks as "a distinctive species of fraudulent conduct ... intending to further voluntary exchanges that are not mutually beneficial", as they "benefit con operators ('con men' - criminals) at the expense of their victims (the 'marks')". A scam is a crime even if no money was lost..
VERY IMPORTANT: Do not confront the scammer, leave them guessing. As much as you want that moment in the sun at high noon with the two of you facing off in the desert, leave the scammer not knowing what happened. That is your superpower if you chose to use it!
Now report the scammer on www.Anyscam.com or on this website. If money was involved then also report it to your local police and the national police, such as the FBIFBI FBI - Federal Bureau of Investigation The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is the domestic intelligence and security service of the United States and its principal federal law enforcement agency. Operating under the jurisdiction of the United States Department of Justice, the FBI is also a member of the U.S. Intelligence Community and reports to both the Attorney General and the Director of National Intelligence. A leading U.S. counter-terrorism, counterintelligence, and criminal investigative organization, the FBI has jurisdiction over violations of more than 200 categories of federal crimes, including financial fraud.. Then blockBlock Blocking is a technical action usually on social media or messaging platforms that restricts or bans another profile from seeing or communicating with your profile. To block someone on social media, you can usually go to their profile and select it from a list of options - often labeled or identified with three dots ••• the crap out of him/her – everywhere: instant messaging, Facebook, email, etc. If you were drawn to Google Hangouts, stop using it forever – they are all scammers there!
What else can we tell you?
You were scammed, and we are truly sorry. But it happened and now you have to keep going and do the right things!
We wish you all the best from all of us! And when you are ready, come back to us and we will help you recover from this. That is the truly hard part and you will need help! But we are here, and yes, you will get through all of this – it is ok at this point in our ranting we can tell you that!
God Bless, And Stay Strong!

- Your National Police or FBI (www.IC3.gov)
- The Scars Worldwide Reporting Network HERE or on www.Anyscam.com
