New, odd, scam? I'd love some insight...



  • So the latest... I'm starting to give serious consideration to the theory put forward by @pe7erpark3r that this is indeed a husband-hunter (possibly so she can stay in the country post-Brexit?) and the fact that I have played along seeing how far she'd go (to try and call her bluff/catch her out) assuming it was a scammer has given me cause to go "oh fuck" a bit 😂🙈

    (Allegedly) she lives in London, was quite open about being unemployed currently, and lives with her parents. The being 35 living with parents is a really nice touch if this is not authentic; it lends a lot of credibility to the idea that she moved here with family looking to settle and might not be too fussy who with.

    She's asked if she can come stay visit me soon, asked if it could be for a full week. Obviously I'm not going to give a stranger my address (I'm not THAT daft), I am playing along saying that we could probably sort something out at the end of the month. I've floated a couple of dates and am now waiting to be asked for travel money in scam style (which I would also obviously never provide).

    We're also supposedly having our first live video chat tonight, previously not possible as I've had my son since Friday. That will be VERY interesting.

    Last year I was seriously considering writing a book or blog on some of the wide spectrum of (authentic and otherwise) online experiences I've had, from a sociological point-of-view. I'm thinking about it again now... this could prove a jolly interesting chapter 🤔



  • @Matt_Aranha the plot thickens Matt! I'm nearly as keen as you to see how this pans out

    You might be keener, I'm not sure I want to find out! 😂



  • @Matt_Aranha haha well at best she is genuine 🤔 and at worst you see her coming with neon lights and klaxons 😁



  • random bot. nothing to see here


  • Soul Searchers

    @mikeJB Sounds like a very intelligent and fun bot. Would this be like Cherry 2000 or Her variety?



  • Bot, bored person, gay person hoping to "trade", whatever.
    Chances she's real are minimum since, ehm, who uses hangouts?


  • ABOOBS Chocolate Lovers ;) Soul Searchers SEEKERS

    @Matt_Aranha nice now it took me 5 minutes 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    I am aware of examples.

    It might either be legit interest, combined with a personality that just is quite a bit too engaged and hopeful (people like that definitely exist, and they tend to lose interest after a while, you know borderline?), or

    there are lots of women in eastern europe/asia, who actually hope to marry a western man, maybe even without any ill intent... And that is something that happened often even before the internet. I'd put my bets on this last option.

    I wish you the best ❤

    They do indeed exist I agree (the former), I have known a few in real life. I've considered the second option too. I've seen more than enough to satisfy me that this is no bot, so in the absence of any scam the only options left appear to be somebody bored/pranking (but who has the effort to converse for so long for the sake of a prank?) or the things you mention.

    Thanks for the support, whatever the case 😊👍



  • @Ladydoall30 nice one ladydoall! How are you anyway luv, you've been quiet on here lately. Just busy dancing? Xx



  • @Ladydoall30 lucky you, J, sounds idyllic. I'm stuck on the island ,ferries cancelled due to 70mph winďs. There's much worse places to be trapped, can't really grumble. xx

    @Matt_Aranha Incidentally do you know the song all i wanted was danger by the milk? It's quality, the whole album is, kind of funky modern urban soul from south east England. Album is called tales from the Thames delta, one of those you play without skipping a track. I've a feeling you may dig it

    Decent stuff... I kept finding myself curious to hear what the next track would sound like as each current one was playing. I think my stepdad will like it. I'm definitely going to give it another go. Cheers!
