These days, people are quick to throw the concept of neediness around without actually looking at what it is.I’ve had some of my female readers complain that the term neediness makes it sound like I’m framing women as weak, fragile, insecure creatures that just cling to men (and stress them out). I think women bring a tremendous strength and power to the table in relationships…OK, now I want to step back because I can imagine that my points may have enraged certain readers, who are ready to comment with things like, “Why should we have to reward his dumb ass for not lying?
Mine was, he asked for money for his daughter in boarding school in Michigan. He paid me lots of compliments and said nothing inappropriate or stupid. One in particular responded with a comment that she was glad family was important to him. But, they cross us off their lists and go on to the next one. He gave a fake address in NJ, and paid for my flowers with a stolen AMEX account. He has Facebook account under Larry Richards, Larry Richard,and Larry Serdar. I think I've met a scammer too, although he got nothing from me. Currently in Turkey, and due to the ISIS attacks these few days, his equipments was damaged.
I was quite charmed by the fact that he disregarded our age difference, I am 64, and talked about what really mattered, friendship, wisdom and experience. You may come across the same photo with a DIFFERENT name. He fits the profile and so does she fit the profile of a mark. They have thousands of identities and work at it 24/7. His name is Alex Aiden, 45, grew up in London when he lost both his parents at 10. Internet connection is bad and he cannot access his banks for money. Said that I could check that he has a lot of money in the account.
This is trying to take advantage of victims again by charging a small [so they claim] fee for recovering their money - which is just another scam! He was born 5/7/60 & his photos (3) showed him as good looking with gray hair.
Others try to post saying that [name of scammer] is not a scammer, or they threaten me with voodoo or black magic if I don't remove the posts that reference them. His daughter was in a photo with him & had long blonde hair.
It points out how to recognize red flags and (hopefully) not make the same pitfalls that may have lead to pain and heartbreak.
