Getting away with cyber crime

An Ohio man created several fake identities, impersonating American soldiers, and scammed multiple women. He admits that he did it. But because the victims were in scattered jurisdictions, and because the guy did not use the U.S. Mail, no one will prosecute him.

Dear Redwald,

There are some scams that I personally would NEVER FALL FOR, and there are others that I probably WOULD. Some person who said they were a soldier (male or female) and that they were in love with me, or needing money to come meet me—that would never be one I would fall for.

But that said—I am here because I did fall for A SCAM (actually several scams) by PSYCHOPATHS….

I have seen people interviewed on TV and read about others who were scammed by scams that I, personally, could see through like a piece of glass….but I do realize now that the scam that will catch YOU might not interest me at all, and the scam that will catch ME might not interest you at all.

Scams sort of have to be tailored to fit the individual, just like a piece of clothing is not “one size fits all” neither are scams.

I used to feel VERY SUPERIOR to women who went back to men who beat them—over and over. But I came to realize that I was NOT SUPERIOR at all…..I fell for the lies and the scams of my P-son, my P-sperm donor my enabling egg donor, and my P-BF, and I wasn’t a whit superior to those women, it was just that MY PARTICULAR weak point was NOT a spouse that would hit me.

I sort of saw myself in the face of the hypocritical Pharisee in the Story Jesus told about the two men, that Pharisee, and a publican, both praying in the Temple. The Pharisee, very narcissistically stood before God and said “Thank God I am not a sinner like that publican (tax collector)” where the publican, threw himself on the floor of the temple and humbly asked God to “have mercy on me, a sinner.” I am now still aware of the wolves, but realize that the obvious wolves are not the only danger in the forest…there are snakes out there that I don’t see as well. I don’t think it is the OBVIOUS DANGERS (each of us see different obvious dangers) that snare us, but those that for whatever reason WE DON’T SEE.
