Would you ever loan a complete stranger $8000?

There is a story in my news today. A woman loan a complete stranger $8000. The lady came up to her at a mall and told her some sob story and asked her to give her $8000 in exchange to hold onto a bag of "diamonds".

My first thought is, FUCK NO. Then my 2nd thought is, why not go to a pawn shop and do the exchange if the diamonds are real.

Common sense people!

  • The idiocy of people is just astounding. No, I wouldn't.

    I have no pity for someone who is dumb enough to be conned like this.

  • There are so many things wrong with that story. But to answer your question, I don't even have $8,000 cash to my name so it wouldn't be possible and unless $8,000 wouldn't make a dent in my bank account.....hell to the eff no!
