I am so tired of ppl who think they have to scam other!!

Why can't scammers grow up and get a job. It looks like someone is trying to scam us. We have been getting calls from this guy saying that we owe money for a payday loan that we got and never paid. But when we went looking we never actually got any of the loans cause of how much the fees are. He won't give us any info on who it was from. And he wont tell us anything else! I just dont know what else to do? And that isnt it!

Also I had an email from paypal letting me know about my payment to a group called Shared Matrix. So since I didnt make the charge I called paypal n told them. They suspended my account there sending me some security measures to be able to get on it if I need to! And that was at 8am so yesterday evening I got another email that said they sided in my favor n they will be refunding my money!

I have been getting tons of pay[al things that where suspitious so that is y I caught this one! AAHH

  • AMEN! I TRULY loathe those who think it's okay to take things that don't belong to them. I had my car broken into when I was 17 and they CLEARED it out.. all my CDs, charger.. everything. I wanted to cry, I felt victimized and violated. What the shit is wrong with some peopl??

  • I would really like to know! It is so hard to find someone who is willing to work hard for their money. Everyone these days thinks they should get a hand out and everyone owes them everything! AAAAHHHHH This is just not even what is appropriate!!

  • Some people spend all of the time scamming and the truth is if they would put that effort into an honest job they would have just as much money.

  • Omg, I know! My husband and I got a call once from someone who was trying to scam us and he totally knew it was a scam, so he played along with it for a long time. The guy was obviously all excited, but then heard me cracking up in the background, and then my husband said that he knew he was a scammer. The guy asked to talk to me and started calling me a f*$cking b$%ch, and screaming at me. Then, he proceeded to tell my husband that he was calling the police on us, lol. He cussed my husband out, all the while pretending he was from fake Travel Agency. It was hilarious. Another time, my husband got one of those e-mails stating that there was $40 million dollars in the bank waiting to be claimed by someone with my husband's exact name. Of course, all he had to do was give them his credit card info and pay $4 to get it, lol.. y husband replied, "Omg, I'm so excited. Tell me whatever info you need and I'll send it right away", lol

I just find it really sad that in a world with as many people as there are that the small percentage of bad people there are have to ruin is for the rest of us... somedays it really gets me down on mankind... then I try to remember that there really are more of us than them...

  • I'll tell you what wasn't funny, though. Recently, I tried to sign into my email account and it wouldn't let me do due "suspicious activity". I had to go through all this crap to log-in, then look in my sent box, and some scammer had forged my email address as the sender and sent an email to everyone I had EVER contacted through that email, trying to scam them. They even emailed our local library, with my name attached. I was embarrassed to death! I just deleted the email account and made another one. Hopefully no one fell for it, and I haven't heard from anyone about it, but I was SO mad! It's really ridiculous that you can't even access the internet anymore without someone trying to scam you, or give you a virus or something!

  • Ya I know. We had to get a better virus program for our desk top computer cause some hacker was able to get into our computer. Our friend was on tag at the time when it happened. We wasnt able to use our desk top for like 2mths. It was horrible!!
