More on the Fraud

The people who got taken by this scam operation forwarded to me their email correspondence with "Kevin O'Connor." Reading them in a batch like that, it seems obvious to me that the part of "Kevin" was played by several different people with varying levels of English proficiency. To get an idea of the professionalism of this scam, check out the bogus escrow company the thieves used to secure payment.

"why have you turned on the option that logs my IP address when posting?"

In my experience, I have formed the opinion that people tend to be more hurtful and aggressive in their speech when they think they enjoy total annonymity. I don't care to read the kinds of messages that people craft for me from behind the walls of their electronic forts.

Re: trust
thanks for the reply
it takes alot of gumption to speak as openly as you do about ones life and thoughts, its a service to those who might learn through your experiences, a service i for one truly appreciate. i can see how you would want to keep people from being nasty by having some way of knowing who they are but still it seems those who want to be that way will find a way.
at any rate seeing that Notice! message just made me question if my ip could perhaps fall into the wrong hands through my posting here.
its crazy what kinds of misuse people will put tools to.
wishing you luck and happiness -some kid in florida aka hiram
