Default Been Scammed And

I'm really in a mess. Ruins my plans, goals, etc. I knew better and still got sucked in. Still kind of involved, and don't know how to stop it from happening.

I put a stop to it. I'm feeling somewhat better, not 100%, but better.

I don't want to get into what happened, feeling stupid.

I know how you feel. Unfortunately it happens to the best of us. Nowadays the scammers are more sophisticated that very intelligent people can get taken. It's hard to talk about what happened because other people can make you feel stupid, but at the same time, you need to get it off your chest.

I felt like I got scammed recently. It's a horrible feeling. What had happened to me recently, other people said that I got careless. This happened at where I live.

I hope you can feel better about your self soon. I know how it feels because I had been losing sleep over what had happened to me.

Will19 is right, it can happen to anyone and it sucks when it does. The important thing is that you realized what was going on and got yourself out.

Here's what happened. I got a message from a semi famous person on Instagram. Mike Holmes, but it wasn't Mike Holmes. He showed interest in me and offered to pay off my credit cards. He obtained access to my account. Sent in a fake payment than when that payment posted he recharged all the debt maxing out the card that was supposedly just paid off. Then they payment bounced, found out it was called an unauthorized payment, which technically can get me in trouble.

I changed my password, cancelled my cards, there were two under the same account. But now I have a bigger debt to pay off.

I am so sorry that you were victimized in such a terrible way. The scamming that is so common these days is appalling. Please try not to feel embarrassed! So many people are hooked into scams.

Scammers are VILE SCUMBAGS, and what I would like done to them would have you all questioning my mental state. I HATE them. Don't be embarrassed. I have them calling here all the time. The reason I have never fallen for it is because I am in general a hateful, suspicious, mistrusting person in the first place. (Serves me well in this instance, I guess.) Don't feel bad about it, just go through the proper channels and fix it.
