      Patkay thats an obvious scam and not a very good one at that. Aimed at the emotions- just letting you know what kind and helpful people there are at that link. Gee it's a swell place shes saying. Have you every heard of a man with the first name of Wellity?

        I have to agree with you this is 100% scam. But what do they gain out of it?

    I'm in Japan now, and let me tell you this situation is very common.  I would say about 3 in 10 women have been dumped be an arm robbers when they were travelling for business translation.  It's a serious issue over here and not something to joke about on forums.  I myself have come close to dumped be an, so I know how it tears a family apart.

        Cardisa, nothing makes sense, even if if you read it a hundred times.

    I've been wondering what's wrong with my brain since I've been always thinking about the money (the kids and the tuition and the gas prices, etc. etc. etc. etc.).  Now I know that what has been going on with my brain is that it has turned all sides darn.

    Helen certainly has a way with words.  She should write a book if she ever gets out of the pickle she's in.  (Oh, and I hope poor Wellity manages to pull himself together.  Things must really be horrible for Helen if even the crusty old Wellity was in tears!)  (and TRUE tears, by the way - not just fake ones)  I don't know....  This is just all so upsetting.  Please excuse me while I go find a bucket for all the true tears that are absolutely flooding out at this point.  I just hope I don't dehydrate from all this.

    Wow, who travels with $658,000 on them? Life is good if you've got a suitcase with that much money in it.

    You just have to be careful with those be an arm robbers when you travel with anything more than $500,000 dollars. They will dump you till your brain turns all sides darn.

    If that happens to much, your skin flips inside out and your eyes begin to snap crackle and pop until true tears come out.

    On a serious note, does anyone think this person has been successful at all with this poorly put together scam? I'm sure if someone who understands very little english would read it, the scam would be less obvious. I really hope nobody falls for this though.

    I can't believe people would actually fall for this. How do you even make sense of the comment. Just a great reminder that everyone needs to be careful online!

      This is definately a scam, for one posting it as a comment on my hub amounts to treason (ooh which other word can I use). Anyway, we will be seing hundreds of scams like these in the technology world we are living in. I think we will soon get used to it.
