Scam. 

Hey Tim, did you check the IP address of the OP to see if it's coming from Ireland AND from a legit ISP and not a web host.

Check if the IP addy is from Eastern Europe or India.

I got PM from Jacqui, and she sent me some pics of mom and son.

They had a great time in NY.  

I personally don’t think it was a scam, fwiw.

What did they catch? 

She didn’t go into a lot of details, but the jist of it was,

they had a short but very memorable great time here in the U.S.

(I didn’t ask about the fishing part) 

Hopefully Jacqui can weigh in and give us the updates?

Really no reason to cast aspersions like that. 

No reason at all.

I checked the IP number the minute I read her first post - it is in Ireland. And the other two IP addresses she used, also in Ireland.  Not a web host. I’m always on the look out for fraud here, this was not fraud.

That's great Tim. Sometimes there are decent people out there.

I didn't mean anything inappropriate

It was just add to me that after all that effort no-one would post .any updates

And reading the post above mine, now deleted, that was never answered

I was just wandering

Doubt is good, and confirmation is good, also.

One should always be aware, that there are pretty rich people here  and for some it isnt too much to go round about ways to get closer to those.

Just saying.

Not that I imply that to this case.

Did you also know that I made it clear from the beginning that nobody was asking for money. She asked for help, contacts, information - people offered all of that and tackle. No money. 

 

Bottom line is every time someone asks  the members here to ‘help them out’ we do everything possible to make sure they are legit. I’ve been doing this for twenty years now, the number of people helped over the years by the members here is in the triple digits. They are vetted as thoroughly as possible, before anyone asks us to :)

You wrote ‘Or was this a real scum?’ - that’s inappropriate. 

 

I just read through the thread and missed where you offered to help. Anyone that helped her out is welcome to ask respectfully for an update. People that just watched others help her out don’t get to accuse her of fraud because they - who did nothing - didn’t get a satisfactory update...much less suggest they were ‘real scum’.

Yes, I knew.

But as I said,  round about comes to my mind..

it may be that eventualy some whale offers some other things as a sign of good will, eventualy.

This world is dubious in many ways. And nigerians are small kids in comparison to some carefully planed and executed things.

It`s nice for you all to help

but it`s also legit for some to doubt and suspect.

And I have to say, that avatar image looks like it`s meant to worn in advance..

No pun intended, to miss Jacqui, just my honest opinion. That has been corrected by the latest news about the matter.
