Taxi scammers

Post by SteveUKR » May 7th, 2018, 7:31 pm

This is quite common in Ukraine. The girl will claim to live far outside of the city you are in and ask for reimbursement of taxi fare.

In my case, I met her on Tinder. The good thing about Tinder is it shows the distance she is from you even as she moves. I'm in the centre and it showed her less than a kilometre from me, yet she kept claiming she was out of town.

Some guys are dumb and they will just pay it. Not me.

Nope. Age doesn't matter for taxi scammers.

Even a prostitute I can respect more than a taxi scammer or shop scammer because a prostitute will tell you pay so much and you will get this but a taxi scammer or shop scammer earns through deceit.

The truth is this: some 50+ year old sexpat on Tinder is a mark. It's better to go to local events and hire a love coach e.g. http://culturewhiz.org/experiences/life-coaching-shawn

Scammers are everywhere, trying to get some money from you - with any kind of argument you can imagine. It's not only about girls lying to men.

Men are also showing up as scammers, but also entire organizations try to get your money, religious cults for example, or pro-feminist NGOs and so on.

It's easy - don't give them any money, whatever they will tell you...

If you have too much money give this ridiculous guy (PaloAltoGuy, MrLee4u etc.etc.) USD 100,- for his lunch...

Yes, you are right but I am really pissed off with these scammers because they steal something more valuable than money - your time. While you are wasting time with scammers you could be with someone legitimate.
