    Timing is incredibly awkward as I just asked for a big raise friday and one of my points was I don't want to be paid à l'heure anymore cuz I lost money when my son broke his arm earlier this year and I had to stay with him not earning anything.

    Scammers keep scamming people because it works. They play with people's emotions to get what they want... They know that there are people out there who are nice, naive, gullible and they exploit that.

    I'm sorry that it happened to you.

    I remember one time there was a guy between the Berri station and the Orleans bus station. He supposedly lost his luggage in a transfer from I don't remember to the states for cancer treatment. All his medication was in the luggage and he needed some money for replacements overnight until he can get his luggage back. He had a big lumpy bulge on his stomach (like head sized). I felt generous and gave him some money.

    Funny thing he was there with the same story when I passed by again 3 weeks later.

    I mean you should know with where this was (that place is/was a drug addict hotspot), but I guess the big weird lump got me for a second.

    I didn't know. I still don't know what I was thinking. Everything was pointing it up to me as a scam. I knew it already but still give it away.

    Like TDG said, he probably found my weak spot and used it to an extreme limit. I was feeling happy overall and probably too generous. Ironically, if I didn't stop to have lunch on my way, I would have never seen him.

    That's also the thing. The guy was in middle of nowhere.

    Anyhow. Another story.

    Back when I was studying at UdeM, there was a guy in the metro that came up to me. His uncle was working for Desjardins and he told me there was a flaw in the system (lol). I can't remember exactly the amount but let's say we withdraw 999.99$, somehow it would spark the flaw. If I gave it back to him, he could send me back the money and I could withdraw more or something. It felt so sketchy and I was broke anyway.

    Omg dude. I know the guy you’re talking about. I think 6-7 years ago while walking out of Bonaventure station, he told me a whole story and showed me his stomach bulge. I didn’t end up giving him money as I had no cash on me and wasn’t willing to give him any. The weird lump almost got me too, but when he kept saying how he can come with me to the atm and kept harassing me, I knew there was something off.

    I saw the guy again a few years later at McGill station talking to a couple. Oh man...

    tbh, stuff like that is why i'm a **** and lie about never carrying money on me and not having time

    i know some people legitimately ask you for money for good reasons, but i just don't want to be scammed like this or have that money used in drugs

    I'm still asking me that today and I probably will ever do. I would never ever do that but I did for some reason.. I wasn't myself. Like hypnotised, drunk, high... it's getting me depressed

    Maybe you can't write properly, but Monsieur B1p has a malfunctioning read comprehensive.
