Good Morning All
I support Shy in her posting of safety issues when on the boards. I have been approached by email from members on other boards with requests for help, in other words money. I also know others who have also been in this position.
These requests will often be accompanied by stories designed to evoke sympathy. I have made friends online but have been very careful to be avoid getting into financial discussions. The most recent request I received was from a friend I had actually met who now was asking for $500.00 to pay her house payment, she has a drug problem. I said no and of course I got the email back saying I was cruel and going to cause her to loose everything, her house, her car etc.
Thank you Shy for the gentle reminder to all of us.
Kudos to you.
Shy, What a great reminder for all members here. It is so easy to get wrapped up or involved in each others lives & situations but since we only communicate over the internet we really never do know what may be going on in someones life.
Please everyone do be very careful
