Unfortunately, the internet is full of scammers. Most dating sites are full of them, and many sites don't bother to get rid of scammers - because scammers look good... scammers use model photos, have nice profiles, and that attracts more members. Scores of suspicious profiles are deleted each day, however, scammers are good at what they do and some slip through the scam screens.
Scammer may exchange emails with you for days or much longer, you may talk on the phone, until the two of you decide to meet. The scammer cannot afford it, but offers to drive to meet you (or take a plane or bus), and requests money to help pay for this. After you send the money, you never hear from them again - or you receive ongoing excuses to delay the trip and more requests for money.
Scammer is sick or has a sick parent or child, or is stuck in a country (Nigeria or Russia usually) and they need your help. Their money, credit card, and ID has been lost or stolen and they have been arrested and need to pay a lawyer so they will be allowed to leave the country. Or they got injured and are in the hospital but can't get treated without money. They are very good at making you feel sorry for them. You may feel inclined to help them and send them money. After all, you have been led to believe this is your future spouse. This is a scam!
This is a scam! Real charitable organizations do not use dating services to get donations! Think about it!
Scammer is planning to visit your city or country and wants to send money ahead for use while there. They are going to 'trust' you to cash the checks for them. They may want you to buy something with the money and send to them - or their trip falls through and they ask you to send the money back. Scammer sends you counterfeit cashiers checks and you end up losing the money you sent to them. Not only that, but you may be found guilty of cashing bogus checks.
Another scenario is that the scammer finds out that you have a need for money and loans you a large amount with cashiers checks. You may be threatened when you are not able to pay it back right away.
They may use the excuse that they cannot upload a photo to the site but want to email you some photos. Facts: If they can email a photo to you, they can email a photo to the site to be added to their profile for free. The scammer is creating email address lists which will be sold worldwide and used for all sorts of purposes.They may give you their email address and ask you to send photos to them of you and your family. If you do, they will have your email address and also your photos to use to convince other victims that they are 'real'. You may not get a further response because they have what they want from you.
I find this interesting article while browsing the web and I ought to share it here at Fanbox. Hope you will find this article very helpful.
What makes a good leader? With the first round of elections coming up in the next week I want to share my thoughts on what makes a good leader and the qualities I feel are important for the next President to possess.
I’m in a somewhat unique position in that being part of the Success Coach program I am part of the auditing team. Which means I get to see firsthand every coach’s teaching style, their knowledge of the site and whether or not they are reliably responding to You the members of FanBox on time.
Because of this I have decided these are some of the most important traits the new President should have. (Brian has been a great example of all these needed traits).
1. Honesty: The last thing FanBox needs is someone who is just a politician, someone who is going to tell you what you want to hear regardless if it’s the actual truth. All around the world we see politicians who do little more than ‘tickle the ears’ of those whose votes they are trying to win. Promising the world to those who will vote for them. In most cases they really care little about those they are being elected to serve and are only after the power of being in charge.
2. Loyal & Trustworthy: Someone who uses people to get what they want while all the time pretending to be their friend is someone who will usually put themselves above the welfare or needs of others every time. Someone who takes a private conversation and shares it with others hoping to benefit themselves or cause drama for someone else is not going to be trustworthy or loyal as President either.
3. Consistentency: Someone who will stand up for what they believe and not flip flop on issues or in speech because they want to be popular and liked more than they desire to see positive constructive change that benefits the whole community.
4. Committment: Those who are committed first to those they are guiding and teaching, putting them first above their own success. If you have a Success Coach who is not putting you first above this election, it’s a pretty good indication it is their own best interest that is their priority.
a.) Does your current coach respond to you in a timely manner or are they consistently late?
Among the multilevel marketing (MLM) or network marketing compensation plans being used (and abused) nowadays is the binary plan. This kind of plan allows distributors to have only two direct or first-level distributors. Any additional distributors sponsored have a “spillover” effect, meaning, they are placed at levels below the sponsoring distributors’ first-level. Compensation is paid based on balancing volume on the right and left leg.
There is no law that states that a binary compensation plan is illegal or is a pyramiding scheme, however, binary plans, being one of the five more popular types of network or multilevel marketing compensation plans, operate under the same laws that govern other multilevel marketing schemes, specifically the provision that disallow the practice of pyramiding schemes. Article 53 of R.A. 7394 of the Consumer Code of the Philippines states “Chain distribution plans or pyramid sales schemes shall not be employed in the sale of consumer products.” Network / multilevel marketing companies, including those using binary plans, must therefore clearly distinguish themselves from those operating pyramiding schemes.
The Direct Selling Association of the Philippines (DSAP) has its 8-point test for pyramiding:

Is There A Manipulator In Your Relationship?
Manipulators don’t hesitate to worm their way into a loving relationship, then turn on
financial or sexual pressure, covered by an often-sickening veneer of kindness.
It’senough to bring your self-confidence to its knees, so you need to be able
their wicked ways…
"When he’d pushed me to the limit, I threatened to leave only to have Philippe become
as meek as a lamb, adorable and really unhappy. I was showered with flowers and
romantic holiday offers. I started to feel guilty and couldn’t quite recall why I had wanted
to leave in the first place,” says Patricia, 40 and mother of 2.
The signs of manipulation: His attitude is in fact a calculated manoeuvre. "Instead of
questioning himself, and listening to your request for change, he deploys a strategy with
the sole aim of getting you back,” explains psychotherapist Christel Petitcollin. If you look
closely at their thought process, you’ll soon see that they have quite a basic ready-made
thought pattern, based on binary logic. It’s all or nothing, now or never, go or stay…
"Often impervious to criticism or self-questioning, they are capable of making short term
efforts only to serve their own needs,” adds Sarah Serievic, psychotherapist specialised
