You can say that again!!! I got a hold of a number of guys??? that gave me that old sob story!!! I warned another dater about it and he nervously excused himself. I bet he'd fallen for it and gave her his credit card # or bank account # the way he acted.
Hopefully he stopped her in time. I sent money a couple of times but not much and via Western Union. This was on MATCH.
All I met on Match were thieves and swindlers. EHarmoney is a joke too!!! I tried them and they not only never hardly sent anyone but they told me I was a "monster" (Can you imagine saying that to a CUSTOMER???) and then it got worse. I was sent the "dregs" of the universe. Needless to say I quit BOTH dating services and I was MAD!!! Now I tell everyone who will listen to stay away from them and why. If you don't believe me try it yourself!!!
