Everyone over 40 should read this article, because you can count on meeting AT LEAST one scammer, ESPECIALLY ONLINE, if you are over 40!

my neighbor recently re-married..I’ve had (still do) suspicions about what HE really wanted her for..his wife died a year ago, hers has been gone over 4 years; her mother died just a year ago..he moved into her life too fast for my taste, a whirlwind romance..she is SO in love..

both of them, are 73; this romance just went too fast for me; she’s different when he’s around her; I just hope this doesnt end badly.
