I've Been Scammed - Almost!

{This post is about internet/email scam and has NOTHING to do with Arabs or anything of the sort!} 


Don't trust anyone online, suspect everyone. Be paranoid. Hahaha.

You see, I've been sending my CV here and there, signing up on every jobs site I know for the past few months because obviously I want to change job or at least get a high paying job so I can go to places.

So when I received an email from "Grove Technology Inc." last 27 of May, I immediately replied back because of the "attractive Euro salary" - blame it on my European dream, LOL.

Anyway, here's what the email says:

Because I have to buy the "lisdasoft" which costs 58 euros and there's no trial version whatsoever and need to pay through Western Union (what the!)... my brain started to function properly.. LOL. I was like.. hmmm so that's the catch, it's a scam. Although I got tempted to pay (glad I've no credit card or not a fan of purchasing stuff online), my fingers start typing "Edsel Carl" and there he is... his name with different different company name, he's nothing but a FRAUDSTER!

------
So anyway, I replied him with:

"That's actually very scheming.
Why not transfer my first week salary in advance first so I can buy that software :) "

------
I don't consider myself as a gullible person, I'm more a paranoid. I always doubt people. So what happened here because I want to earn big time (being greedy and stuff) because I'm not getting any younger and I have dreams to fulfill.. so I almost got scammed.

Lesson learnedGreediness is next to foolishness.

I'm still glad that though I'm not contented, apparently, with what I already have, I didn't lose anything in the process.
