Absolute scum. "Sick relative" and "Recovery" scams are two of the very worst types, IMO! Preying on the good nature of others. Sickening. Evil or Very Mad

Symington was then contacted by another 'victim' who told him the woman he had been in contact with was actually a Nigerian gang.


I wonder if someone from SW or another site had warned him?

I enjoy reading these sad articles for ONE simple reason.
They always piss me off and light a fire under my ass.
I end up sending off responses to a few dozen lads with the sole intention of making them suffer. Evil or Very Mad

The inevitable unsympathetic comments of course. I've signed up to post a more appropriate one.

I wonder. It doesn't seem that he was warned him of the recovery scam though.

I sympathise with the guys in the two articles, but I still find it hard to understand how people can be taken in by this.

For anyone outwith the UK and not familiar with the Sun, the comments posted are a fair refection of their readership ( except Mr tambourine man, of course).

I think the postman was "warned " as part of the recovery scam
Surely a warning from scamwarners would have pointed out that it might be a possiblity that bogus claims to get his money back are very common

^^^^
There's a seemingly more accurate report in his local paper here
This bit puzzles me a bit though.
Quote:
n March 2008 – a year after the tricksters had first approached Shane – he went to the police who told him it was a scam. Despite their advice, he carried on emailing Vivian

He must have had doubts to have gone to the police but carried on for most of a year despite those doubts and the police advice.
I think that 419eater/scamwarners would have been more successful than the police were.

A student from China studying in the UK committed suicide not far from me about a year back after getting hooked by a scammer.

The condition when a victim won't listen to the blindingly obvious advice of others is not so hard to understand, and as a baiter you will one day get a scammer in the same position.

I'm a messy baiter and fire mails off without minute attention to detail - more big splashes of colour - and my Lad Shorty spotted some of them, but to my amazement he used to think up reasons for the mistakes before I could make anything up.

It's more to do with manipulating people and imposing your will on them. A mixture of dominating them and also cosying up to them. By the end of it, they'd do it just so they won't let you down.

The more someone has given a scammer the more their psyche is determined to reinforce that it isn't a scam. If you lose 200 you feel very silly and annoyed. If you lose 20,000 you *have* to believe the next payment is the last one as the alternative is too hideous to even contemplate. You'll post-rationalise every step of the way (like Gomer's Shorty - in his case the idea that he's been led on a wild goose chase for years is just too appalling an idea to be evaluated any more)
