The Husband Died, the Son is Ill, the Girlfriend Scammed the Woman for Forty Million Dollars

Vulnerability is the cause of being scammed here, from the Newspapers, translated…

A woman, Chen saw that her childhood best friend after she retired from the banks, she’d weathered through the death of her husband, her eldest son’s divorce, and she had a stroke herself, claimed that she knew a “master”, attempted of scamming her best friend for money using that she wanted to help her get rid of her bad luck, and, as her former colleague realized that something wasn’t quite right and called the police, that, was how this scam got busted, and the D.A. asked for Chen to be taken into custody, which the judge allowed for.

The police pointed out, that the sixty-seven year-old Chen grew up with the victim, and so, she’d trusted Chen, but, Chen too advantage of the victim’s husband dying, her eldest son fallen ill, her younger son in the U.S., working, she felt lonely and empty, in a year’s time, she’d managed, to scam her for about forty million dollars.

The police stated, that last year in August, Chen told the victim, that she knew a “master” who knew how to turn her luck around, to ward off her bad luck, but she must put up the money for the procedures, Chen used the fact, that the victim’s husband had died, because there was something bad in her karma, her eldest son’s divorce, as well as her stroke, are all, due to difficulties in her life, wanted the woman to pay a huge sum of money, to have rituals performed for her.

Later, Chen told the victim, that she was hexed by a former coworker, and that she must pay some money, to have the hex removed, or, she will lose her life, and her offspring will have bad luck too.  The victim had, given thirty million dollars N.T. to Chen, and Chen said, that she is in charge of manipulating the prices on the sales of properties, that she could make sure that the victim gets her property’s value increased, and the woman had signed over a house that she has in a very highly-priced neighborhood, to the bank, for ten million dollars N.T. for Chen to use.

Last month, Chen asked the woman to take her retirement pension which was very good from the banks out, to give it to her in cash, and the woman’s former colleagues realized that something wasn’t quite right, he’d notified the police, and, got the victim to use $100,000N.T., to lure Chen out, and, the police busted her.

Chen stated, that she was looking out for her old friend, that it wasn’t fraud, the police booked her on fraud, and, the judge allowed for her to be taken into custody after the D.A. pleaded the case.

So, this, is the downside of trusting someone too much, like this woman, who’d trusted the scam artist, and ended up, losing almost everything she had, but gladly, she didn’t, and this scam artist used her friendship with the woman, and she knew the woman’s state of mind, how she felt she was having a good run of bad luck, and that, was how she was able to scam her.

A Man Only Wanted to Save His Girlfriend, Refused to Believe that He Was Actually Scammed, Blamed the Officers, “Why Did You Take My Chance at Happiness Away”

Because you were too eager, that, was made you fall prey!!!  From the Front Page Sections, translated…

A twenty-seven year-old man, Huang met a “girlfriend” through a cell phone app, at night, he’d gotten a call for ransom, that his girlfriend was kidnapped, and he must pay with the online gaming credits of $30,000N.T. to get her to safety; Huang believed it, and no matter how hard the police tried to convey to him, that “it’s a scam”, he wouldn’t stop believing, he’d even cried, as he’d questioned the police, “Why must you destroy my chance at happiness?”, in the end, the police called up his family, for them, to take him home.

Huang, who worked at a super convenience shop, awhile ago, used the matchmaking app, Beetalk, met a girl who claimed to be a hooker, “Chih”, Huang felt himself, falling for her; “Chih” first played the victim, texted, “I didn’t want to work like this, but my family is poor, and that, was why I’d sold,” then she’d shown care and concern for Huang’s work, he felt that he’d become important in her life, and started feeling infatuated.

At noon, he’d just chatted with “Chih”, and in the evenings, he’d received a call from an unknown male claiming, “I have your girlfriend, you will come to Shihlin, and hand over $30,000N.T. worth of gaming credits, or, I will cut your girlfriend’s hands and feet off!”  Huang went to the super convenience shops, printed out the gaming credits of $30,000N.T’s worth, ready to go and safe his girl, the manager of the shop thought that it was odd, and called the police immediately.

The police found that the number that Huang received the call from was listed as a number that’s scammed for 8,000 times, and consoled Huang hard, “It’s a SCAM!”, but Huang didn’t believe the officers, kept reminding them, “Time is almost up, let me just go to her for a little bit; she needs me, I’ll know when I go there.”

As the police worked hard, to console him, told him, “Why do you trust the scam artists so much, and not us, the police?”  All of a sudden, Huang started sobbing, “Why must you all see my bliss get taken from me?”

Later on, the police reached out to Huang’s families, and they’d come to the subprecinct, to talk some sense into Huang, and, finally, they were able to persuade him, that it was, all a scam, and he was taken home by his families, but, as Huang left the subprecinct, Huang still held to the beliefs of how “Chih” was his girlfriend.

Uh, yeah, you’ve GOT to be so god DAMN F***ING (maxed out????) desperate for some attention of the members of the opposite sex to fall prey to that, and, the man was taken TO the police station, and he tried to convince the officers that his girlfriend was taken, when the police had the EVIDENCE, the numbers on their file, compared to the number that he’d received the calls from on his cell, and this IDIOT still wouldn’t believe them, uh, if that’s NOT stupid, then, I don’t know what is!
