You ever get scammed?
« on: January 04, 2019, 10:35:31 PM »

Only time I really got scammed, was when trying to buy an used Switch online. He was a youngish immigrant kid, and luckily with my benjiesque doxxing skills, I found his family on facebook easily, called his mother, who I then could hear yell at him in the background. 5 min later the money I had sent was repaid.  :doge

Well that and I bought God of War. That also felt like a scam.

It was a trade. I gave him a Switch and he gave me an ďiPhoneĒ (was actually android phone in an iPhone box). Seconds after the trade (while Iím trying to open the box to make sure itís legit), he sprints to a nearby car, I catch him by the collar and dial 911. Heís able to break free and escape but I was able to memorize license plate.

Spent two years in a relationship with an inattentive narcissist (BPD wasn't her biggest problem). Also spent two years at a company that kept me down due to favoritism (upper management has a demographic preference).

The end result is I learned that I intimidate highly insecure women as much as highly insecure men.

Grew up Mormon and stayed Mormon til I was 30 so I got y'all beat. The only one that comes close is atra.

I did that from a super religious Muslim background right before I turned 17. It sucks.

A cab driver in Warsaw tried to scam me by telling me that he switched the meter to Euros which was an obvious lie for him to charge me 4x the fare.

Was a good opportunity for me to practice cussing in Polish.

There was one time a prospective roommate from Craigslist wanted to use my account to park a bunch of money for a few days before "she" moved in, and I almost went for it, but caught on before I did serious damage to myself lol.

Way back in the TBC era I got scammed when trying to buy WoW gold online. :lol

Didn't spend a lot of money, but I don't understand why I was surprised when the trader didn't show up, especially when the meeting point was The Barrens.

I got scammed and trolled.

Guy I worked with wanted a 20 sack;  I showed up at his apartment and he was like "oh crap can I get you back the $20 tomorrow".. I didn't know he had quit that day.   Also that wasn't his apartment, he had apparently been squatting in it after someone he knew's grandma had died.   I found that out when I showed up knocking a few days later to find the guy.  This was pre cell phone so I had no way of contacting him otherwise... into the ether.

Yes. This is pretty embarrassing.

A guy from a class I was taken had gotten somewhat friendly with me and had actually propositioned having a threesome with his girlfriend. She was a decent looking Latina and he was an ok dude.  I was in my early 20s and not really having any real opportunities to have sex agreed to it.

I was told to meet them at thier apartment, but when I get there and call the guy says to just stay outside in my car. He will come down and talk to me. Ok fine, I don't know why I can't just go up there, but I really want to have some sort of sex. Guy comes down, gets in my car and tells me that first we've got to get some weed. Ok thats fine, makes sense to lighten the atmosphere. He then adds the question do I have any money, a $20. I say yeah and I give it to him because as an idiot I think everything is going to be ok. He tells me to drive to his dealer and we get the stuff. It's all good so far. We get back to the apartment and he goes inside telling me "he's got to make sure everythings ok". Of course he never comes back or tells me to come up.

But you were still in the class with him? Or was it from a prior semester? Must suck when someone you know scams you.

I feel like riotous story is not getting the full appreciation of how much effort this dude went to also get $20 of weed.

Like squatting in a dead persons apartment just to get $20. It seems kind of extra.

Edit: the only thing that saved tasty meat from the roommate scam is that he loves the cock. Lot of straight dudes would have been taken by that.

I mean I don't think it was some elaborate plan;  dude was just a semi-homeless grifter.  He knew he was quitting and that he'd be moving on so I'd never find him so he pulled his little stunt.   

We were gonna beat the shit out of him if we found him so it's probably for the best we didn't.   I still get twinges of anger / wanting to smash his face when I think about it... but that's more just my festering anger issues than anything lol

I had some twats try to rob me at gunpoint.. for $40 worth of weed. 

They bragged about this ahead of time and I was tipped off.   I knew pretty much everyone who sold weed in the entire area at the time so basically had those dumbasses blacklisted.   I wasn't really confident it would work but according to my friend who tipped me off it actually did;  he said basically an entire high school didn't have weed for the rest of the school year lol
