Naturally I look around for things to sell.
Dresses that I never plan on wearing. Perfect.
Some even with tags on. Even more perfect.
I put three dresses up for sale on a website hoping some young gal might need a dress for a soiree of sorts.
After much waiting I got a bite.
A kind young lady (high school age) wanted one of the dresses but she was worried it might not fit. Being four hours away I thought the best answer would be to send it to her in the mail.
I am trusting. I try to see the best in people. After much emailing back and forth she seemed very trustworthy.
I sent the dress. She got it in the mail and LOVED it, perfect fit she even said.
I asked her to send me the $ and I gave her a variety of options to do so.
She wanted my bank account number to do a direct deposit.
I told her no-can-do, I don't give out that info and then again gave her another list of options.
That would be the last I heard from her.
I emailed every other day, I said kind nice words.
What could I do?? She lived four hours away
Lucky for me she lived in a small town. Within a few hours I had her phone number, mom's name and place of work.
I had no luck contacting her by phone. Maybe she was on to me??
So I called the boys in blue.
The cops. It is a small town and the nice young man I spoke to over the phone was more than welcome to track her down for me.
I only wished I could have seen the look on her face when she answered the door to a police officer looking for my $.
Needless to say he got me my cash.
Yes I learned a valuable lesson, Don't trust anyone no matter how nice they might seem online, get $ first!
Fool me once...I call the Police HAHAHA
You don't mess with this type of crazy
