"I was friend requested by someone named Michela Duran [on Facebook], I accepted, and moments later she sends me messages like "do you like sex baby", and of course I'm a 25 year old man.Our added point is that it is extremely easy to deceive others online. Shortly after messaging back and forth she convinced me to video chat with her, so I did.Petrified I tried negotiating and the amount came down to 00 as final.During this time I read various web sites and then I refused to pay.

It is work and time for them to go after you but by showing no anxiety and giving them no leverage to hold against you, you are able to diffuse a really nasty situation.Others have completely freaked out and gone through hell, even if they didn't pay the scammers.The scammer was threatening the victim continually through messaging, ultimately making his life miserable.After a few days and more money going to the scammer, the victim said he was “DONE! He reported that it cost him a lot more than just money. Now he hopes that telling his story will help other guys avoid it.
