Seeking love online: promise or demise

When something awful happens, like financially, with someone on a reason, we, the outsiders, might easily find avoidable, the assumption is often that that particular thing happened to a dumb person acting with his/her usual dumbness. Of course, that is one side of the coin. Sometimes, and not even rarely, it is plain crap.

It has been proven many times, sadly also very recently, that even highly educated, intelligent, well-articulated people can oh so easily walk into devastating situations. Also in such where one’s losses can pile up to 140.000(!) pounds (approx. 173.000 dollars, 162.000 euros). And even more heartbreaking when that happens on the road to happiness, or, expected so, seeking love and companionship. Online. That’s just doubling on the sadness: huge financial loss and losing (for the time being at least) faith in finding the right one.

Exactly what happened with a UK university professor lady, who “met” through an online dating profile with the person (she thought) she was looking for, exactly the values she would expect from a future partner, and after several mail and phone conversations, and after all got warmer, fuzzy and more intense rather quickly, situation got to financial waters as well, on different reasons, sold the crap by probably great salesmanship and being extremely convincing. It had to be, the professor believed in “him” (a criminal gang was behind the online male profile), in John, and that she helps him in his abroad work, business, in times of need and she perhaps wanted to help this “relationship” further with showing trust and support.

An incredible example, tragic too to be honest, where a usually clearly and with common sense thinking person got scammed through her good will, good faith, and her wish for a better future with the One, being desperate even to find happiness. When all the good in someone gets utterly abused, causing terrible losses and damages, financially and mentally/emotionally. Everyone must see clearly: with the cleverly and professionally enough handling persons behind the screen, and a shiny background crafted, most could as easily get scammed, despite all the horror stories, as she did. Bastards like members of such online predatory gangs are not stupid and they know too well how to play on the strings of emotions of many, they give time to learn about the victim and play her out with relative ease. Judging about the victims is unnecessary and mean. Spreading information and awareness 24/7, first of all among relatives, then also in greater circles is a step
