Don't feel bad for being taken on an emotional rollercoaster by the little shit, the fact that you felt so much for someone in a tragic situation, means you got a hell of a lot of empathy. Although you were misled, you're a pretty good human bean imo. +1

Listen here you rat kike, the only complaint I saw from you was about you not getting the presents you were promised. What even makes you think you're entitled to one? Just cause some stranger on the internet said he would? LOL!!! How fucking stupid are you? Well you're either stupid or so much of an entitled jew cunt you feel like this person owes you a present. How about you get off your ass and get a job and earn those things you want you lazy piece of shit. That or keep begging strangers on the internet for shit.

LOL!

I had the same thought... so what if the guy spun a big fantasy story and took everyone for an emotional ride? That's what story-tellers do.

At least he wasn't actually trying to scam anyone for money.

A similar situation came up on a message board I was involved in many years ago, but the story was completely different. It was an adult woman claiming to be a genius with cancer, a former model who had been in Vogue, with a genius child, divorced. She was very charming but I wasn't into her circle of friends, but out of the blue someone else on the board contacted me in private asking me to assist in investigating her. He was very suspicious but torn, not sure whether or not she was real.

He had arranged several times over a year to meet her, but she would never show up, and then message him that she was there, would describe what he was wearing, all kinds of stuff, but made up some reason why she didn't have the guts to reveal herself or whatever.

In any case, she was describing her cancer as progressing and that she might not have much time. The guy falling hook line and siinker for it was a medical student. He had quizzed her about calculus, chemistry, physics, and she seemed to know her shit. He was convinced that she was who she said she was, but something didn't feel right. They would talk on the phone and she had a very alluring voice. It was essentially an online romance.

I don't know how he did it, but he discovered who she was, and he and I got in a car and drove to her place (in military housing). He brought a flower arrangement for her, and a chess set for her genius son. She was not expecting us. When we got there, she was playing loud disco music inside but the main door was open, with a screen door. There was a boy in a wheelchair (cerebral palsy or something) getting some sun.

We knocked on the door and called out her name - she quickly snatched the kid back and closed the main door. We continued to call out to her and she peeked out from the window with some drapes to cover her body. It was obvious that she was very obese, and probably topless.

We explained that we brought flowers for her and a chess set for her son, but she refused to open the door, so we left. As we walked away, the guy I was helping yelled out "I won" and I found it very odd, but anyways, we left and ever more, her name became a kind of meme (the word meme was not used back then) as one of these pretend persons.

She obviously created a fantasy world to escape her situation, practically housebound with a disabled child, obese and unwanted. Once she was discovered, she naturally disappeared from the board, and for all we know she might have simply started again elsewhere, or maybe worse.

There's a lot of detail that I left out, but the bottom line is that I have very little sympathy or faith in internet sob stories, and while I can be compassionate, I'm never going to be "taken in" that way because of that experience.

A completely separate incident I remember is when a friend of a friend had had an online romance with some guy thousands of miles away. She flew there for a few days, then returned, and blew her brains out with a .45, leaving two young children and a husband behind. Nobody knows what happened when she went there to meet the guy - maybe he rejected her, maybe he raped her, but whatever it was, it drove her to suicide. I'm angry at her for what it did to her entire family.

What happens on the internet affects real people.

Probably a situation exactly like your pal's. But the fantasy being exposed as a lie was too much for her because she'd invested so heavily in it. Thought she was off to meet Brad Pitt's less famous, but more handsome brother, who spends his days sailing around on a yacht when he's not romancing some housewife on the other side of the country via the internet. Instead, got the usual "catfish" scenario.

You know that guy who keeps posting that his wife is in jail and wants advice for his 15 year old daughter? I wonder if he's hoping to get private messaged by someone swallowing his story and take them for a fantasy ride. Every once in a while we hear these random stories and if it were from someone we had already established a "normal" relationship with, e.g. modernpowers just as players, before the sob story emerged, it would be much more believable, but for the truly devious that would be the plan all along.

As much as the people who do this fuck other people up, they themselves are truly the fucked up ones. For someone to have to fabricate a fantasy world like that is not your normal psychopath, because a psychopath doesn't need the empathy, sympathy, and engagement - it's purely for monetary or other tangible gain, not just for the giggles, and they'd want whatever it was they needed, quickly, not after a year and a half. This kind of person is emotionally needy but doesn't think anyone could care for them in their real life, so they got to make stuff up.

In real life this happens too. I knew a guy in a car club I was in, who said he had a black belt in karate. Well I actually had one, so I asked him to show me a kick, and it was horribly awkward and obvious he had no more than a white belt, if anything. He lied about it, just for some fucking imaginary social status points - pointing out how low his self-esteem is. It is just very sad all-round.

There, FTFY. If you can't control your emotions and expect from everyone to spare your sensibility, you should grow a pair or kill yourself right now.

I wasn't referring to microaggressions, rudeness, politicall incorrectness, or any of that stuff. I'm talking about someone preying upon people's compassion and goodwill - like the woman who claimed her husband was a 9/11 victim but was lying and enjoying the attention and making a career out of it. In her case she did it in real life, so this isn't just about the internet, it's about fraud.

Well, shit. I took it at his word yesterday. I thought it was a little funny his step-father would be able to get in, as I work on computers for a living (end users) it's not that far-fetched--most people don't secure things for shit. The rest adds up though. I never paid enough attention to put all these pieces together, but I'm glad you(@jesuspiece) and @monoxane did.

I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed.

I too have inherited a large sum from my father.

Sadly i am currently being investigated by the police due to his previous business partner and soon i believe i will lose it all.

If you could send me your bank account details i could transfer this money to you for safe keeping and then we could split it once the legal proceedings are complete
