    It wasn't exactly my finest hour, but it does go to prove that anyone can be scammed if the circumstances are exactly right. There were a few unfortunate incidents just prior to this phishing email and I explain how I was convinced to delete my own DE-film channel.

    Thank you so much for your continued support through all of this.

@Tempestive I have to agree with you. Science and evidence is the way to go. I think that _all_ religions are a form of scam because you have to believe things on faith and not on evidence. I'm slightly surprised that anyone who is a friend of science won't apply the same scrutiny to their religion, but at the same time, as long as it's a purely personal thing, it won't harm anyone to believe things without good reason.

Vor 9 Tage
Tempestive
Tempestive

Indeed. Don't take me wrong I have no ill will whatsoever towards Mark, but it's just that - the moment to believe something is when there's sufficient evidence for it, and I'm convinced faith, the invariable basis for most religions, is a door towards an unreliable epistemology. I dont see much difference between these types of scams and the ones perfomed by Peter Popoff, for example, or Ken Ham, or William Lane Craig.

I get it though. If they knew you, they knew yo be careful, and you could have been in a panic at that moment. But we must always remember to calm down and look around. I had a recent issue at work (all legitimate), but i still made them jump through hoops, even telling them at one point if they were legit, they know we are trained to be suspicious of everyone unless it comes from known superiors directly. Always be sus.

LOL.... JIM - you have to laugh - a person who under-covers scams got scammed I think you are right - If the scammer CREATES emotions that create senses of URGENCY and of similar nature with a " Mark" or victim - i think anyone can get scammed . FEAR Of LOSS can be a terrible motivator but a beautiful one also having seen KITBOGA /scammer payback channels as well as yours - its seems the two good natures scammers target are good nature ( give money back ) and of course fear of loss . It almost creates the RED MIST in my opinion - an emotional field/spectrum where people can not see all events unfolding only a worse case scenario or desired outcome . people will give all their WITS away to obtain an outcome - once placed in a scenario
