Notice: Forums will be shutdown by June 2019

To focus on better serving our members, we've decided to shut down the POF forums.

Thank you!

Greed can overcome any feelings of skepticism and my neighbour has just invested his life savings with an online commodities options company who promised 50-70% return. He spoke to some cyberspace guy in Eastern Europe who befriended him, showed an interest in his personal life etc. When he went to withdraw it plus his huge profits, guess what, he couldnt. The agent he was dealing with had to go home for his grandmother's funeral and just disappeared........oh yeah....

The scammers are very patient, will groom you and many others at the same time, for months, by being very plausible, polite and charming, say what you want to hear and present themselves as attractive desirable people. Anyone who falls for it is letting their egos, their loneliness or whatever, rule their actions. Head not heart is the way to go!! We are warned often enough and there is no excuse to be conned.
