Or even more screamingly obvious is being asked for "$320,000 which he needed to get his passport back from Hong Kong Customs. "



"The woman, who has grown-up children, said the man was convincing because he knew geology jargon, was romantic and relentlessly reassuring."


Some people shouldn't be allowed to even cross the road by themselves.

It says she was a "business" woman you have to wonder how successful her business was.
A fool and her money are soon parted.
No amount of education will work with people like this. Darwin's law for animals other than humans would ensure the animal with the idiot trait die would out.

It is hard to work out how people can get duped like this, but it continues to happen so some people just have no ability to spot even the most obvious con.
