    This is why I feel so foolish for going as far as I did with the one I got. I'm usually a smart, business savvy person but I was in a very low emotional state after experiencing many deaths in a short time (mother, husb. & g-son {who committed suicide} all in one month). I just wasn't responsible for anything I did during that time. Thankfully I was shocked back to reality in time to stop the transfer of $ plus Western Union reimbursed me the service chg. as well. Sometimes you can only take just so much in life. I saw all kinds of red flags but just couldn't think clearly enough not pay enough attention.

    PatG, I'm sorry for your loss and can fully understand how it would be very difficult to think clearly at such a time. I wish you the best in coping with such tragedy.

    These dirt bags are counting on things like this to be successful in their scam. It is all a numbers game to them. If they hit enough people, they are bound to make a score or two. I once was fighting a computer virus and was so angry at people that would cause these problems. My son, who works with computers said "Mom, you have to realize that www. stands for wild wild west."
    When a dying man asked his pastor "How long does it take to die?" his pastor's heartfelt reply was "A lifetime." Live life to the fullest, but stop now and then to enjoy the sunset.
