How could I be so stupid
After getting scammed, many people ask the question "how could I be so stupid".
The answer is, you're not. Romance scammers learn how to play on people's
emotions and especially their concern for others and many scammers get very,
very good at it. After all, it's their job. It's what they do for a living every
day and by talking to so many people they learn all the right things to say and
also the right time to say them. Many scammers even take courses offered by the
more professional scammers or are recruited and trained by very well organized
If you are a victim of a scammer whether it's financially, emotionally or both
you will see by the comments people post on the scammer profiles we have listed
and the topic pages that you are not alone. People from all walks of life fall
victim to a romance scammer every single day and intelligence has absolutely nothing to
do with it. Romance scammers are a huge, growing problem and if people don't know
what to look for (the flags or signs of a romance scammer) and don't realized how
bad the problem really is then how could anyone with a heart refer to a scam victim
as "stupid". Not knowing something exists does not make a person stupid.
Anyone who refers to a victim of a scammer as being "stupid" really shows their
ignorance and lack of compassion for others. Or maybe they just think they are
so much smarter than everyone else and assume they know all of the details
behind why someone got scammed when actually, they don't have a clue so kicking
others when they are down must be a big boost to their already inflated egos.
