I still can’t understand W-H-Y women are falling for sweet talks here, from the Front Page Sections, translated…
A seventy-eight year old woman, Lin, after meeting a sixty-five year old man, Liu, “she’d fallen in love in old age”, and was scammed by Liu, who’s a well dresser who claimed that he was rich for over six million dollars, after Liu was called to the police stations, he’d claimed, “we are lovers”, but he didn’t have the money to pay her back, and after the police interrogated him, he was booked for fraud.
“I don’t even HAVE my savings anymore!”, during her younger years, Lin had operated a Buddhist items shop, and the millions of dollars she’d saved up is now gone, she’d gone to Shuanlien Subprecinct of Datong Police Substation to report, she could’t understand how the love affair with a man ten years her junior had been a total scam, the son sighed, “My mother is way too naïve!”
Lin’s husband had died many years ago, two months ago, she met Liu inside a karaoke, she was introduced to him by a friend, the well-dressed man pursued her relentlessly, not only would get wear suits, drive name brand cars, he’d even bring her gifts to please her every time they’d met up, it made Lin fall for him.
Liu saw how Lin had taken the “bait”, he’d lied to her about being from a rich family, that he’d inherited a piece of land from his ancestors, but he didn’t have the money to pay the taxes, and the land will be repossessed by the government, and asked her for a loan, and promised to pay her back.
Lin was tricked by his sweet talks, wouldn’t believe that Liu would lie to her, borrowed money from her own relatives, to give to Liu, once she’d withdrawn three hundred thousand dollars for him, the officers at the subprecinct of Shuanglien thought that something wasn’t right, asked her why she was making such huge amounts in withdraw, and Lin scolded the police, “Why is it your business?”, then, got in the car, and drove away with Liu.
Many days later, Lin’s son heard from his relatives, that his mother had been asking for loans from them, and he realized that something was wrong, and found that Liu’s check bounced, the woman finally came to her senses that she’d been scammed, Lin sighed, “Had I only known, I would’ve listened to the police!”, after Liu was arrested and taken in, he’d claimed, “We’re involved, why shouldn’t she loan me the money?”, it’s just, now he doesn’t have the money to pay her back.
And so, loneliness, coupled with the need to feel passion, was what got this woman SCREWED by the sweet talk of this L-O-S-E-R, and, he was preying on her too, and it was too late when she realized this, the money she’d given him, is gone.
