I am the type of person who easily believe and trust people. I guess I am probably the most gullible person around and it hurts me when people betray my trust.
Let me share with you one story that happened to one of my friends. She was contacted by an American and asked her to work in the US. It was really a promising offer and my friend really wanted to take the job. He asked my friend to contact the agency in California and pay half of the price of the finances to get her there. He gave my friend his address and his telephone number and we started investigating. It turned out the address he gave was wrong which we searched through Google earth. Second, the agency has no profile on the net which seemed to be more suspicious. Third, he sent my friend an application form which of all the application form we have seen is the most informal of all. This guy started calling my friend on her cellphone. She confronted this person and told him never, never to call again. A week later, my friend keep getting calls from unidentified number. We traced the number on this website TraceNumber.com and found out that he was the same person. Since then, my friend changed her number. Good thing we used this tracenumber to lookup his name and address. It can also be used to trace harassing telemarketers, prank callers or other annoying callers. You can also lookup missed calls from unknown phone numbers or an unknown number that appeared in your phone bill. Really great tool! Too bad, their service is available for telephone and cell phone numbers in United States and Canada only.
So my advise to everyone out there is to always be wise! Research and investigate before trusting someone. Don’t even give or forward any of your document as they may use it to trick other people.
