I am christine and...I got scammed 4 times. Including 3 recent ones happening all in just one month. I am a student trying to earn extra pocket money as my parents usually do not buy me stuff that I really want which prompts me to save money. I saved up enough by not eating many snacks and drinking sweet drinks, I try to avoid going to restaurants during normal days and spent little money on food. I do additional side earnings through buying and selling (kinda like the middleman) but because I'm the middleman I have to usually bear the losses. The first was a few years back when I wanted to get a Nintendo switch. I saved up for 2 whole years to get it and saw that it was on sale for a cheaper price so I decided to get it from them. From there I was scammed $300. The second one was for a customer, I was helping them get a game acc but because the so-called seller of the acc could give me a discount using PayPal or bank transfer I agreed blindly. I transferred through my bank and afterward, she never replied. I even created another fake acc to ask if the acc was still on sale she she said it was, so now I knew that she was a scammer, I lost $70 from her. The third one was for my sisters as they wanted an iPad, i saved up and went to buy it from WhatsApp business but got scammed $450+202 as he kept asking for money and saying that it was for customs clearance fee and so. The fourth one is even more shocking and this led me to become kind of depressed too. I was selling an acc that I got and I got cheated by a customer. She said that she had paid for the acc and wants the details, I didn't receive any sort of information about the acc being sold so I asked her if she really did pay. I was willing to let her check out the acc so I passed her the details but the email can only be changed after I give her a code. But before that, I have to send her a code for accessing the acc from a new device which she said had expired and as I was busy at that time, I did not doubt her so I gave her the second code which she promptly changed the acc details. I asked her to send me screenshots of the payment and she said she will but there hasn't been any reply since. I lost about $90 from her as i was planning to sell that acc for $90.
Thus to recover from monetary loss, i am looking towards fundraisers as losing $1112 while still being a student. I am extremely distracted by this and want to start again but i also want to recover back the money that i have lost. So if you can help please do I do not mind how big or small your donation may be but i just want to set myself from this pain and agony of losing so much hard-earned money.
Thank you for reading and i hope you have a wonderful day ahead of you.
