They Posed as Soldiers in Love. Over 30 People Lost $2.1 Million.
HippieChick58 comments on Sep 7, 2019:
A crime ring based in Ghana swindled online victims with promises of romance and gold, officials said. A New Jersey man was arrested.

Azi PaybarahJack Nicas By Azi Paybarah and Jack Nicas Sept. 5, 2019 It often started with a hope for love, then quickly turned into a promise of gold. In one tragic case, it ended in death. A woman had struck up a romance on a dating website with a man who said he was a United States soldier stationed overseas. He claimed to have more than $12 million worth of gold from Syria but needed help bringing it to the United States, so she sent him $93,000. He sent back a photograph of an Israeli diplomat she was supposed to meet at the Baltimore airport who was going to bring her “two trunks with ‘family treasure’,” according to a criminal complaint. But he never showed up. The next day, she killed herself. The United States attorney for New Jersey has said that the woman’s death was part of a complex and brazen fraud that swindled more than 30 people out of about $2.1 million. The scheme, officials said, was run by two people in New Jersey and their associates in Ghana. It usually involved someone posing as an American service member on a dating website and “wooing” a target “with words of love,” according to the complaint. While internet frauds have persisted for years, the breadth of the swindle stands out, as well as the fact that it led to arrests. On Wednesday, the F.B.I. arrested one New Jersey man, Rubbin Sarpong, for conspiracy to commit wire fraud. If convicted, he could face up to 20 years in prison and $250,000 in fines. A lawyer for Mr. Sarpong did not respond to a message seeking comment. The case also comes amid growing scrutiny of the proliferation of this type of fraud and struggles by tech companies and the military to stop them. The New York Times reported in July that similar swindles were rampant on Facebook, Instagram and other platforms. Hundreds of profiles were found that impersonated military service members and veterans, including the nation’s top generals. Following The Times’s reporting, Representative Adam Kinzinger said he was considering legislation to force Facebook and other companies to do more to prevent such frauds. The congressman, who is also in the Air National Guard, said scammers have used his likeness for years to defraud people online. On Thursday, Mr. Kinzinger, an Illinois Republican, criticized Facebook for its announcement that users in the United States could now create dating profiles on its platform. Facebook said the service, Facebook Dating, was already available...

I have embraced my aloneness. I do what I want when I wanna. I eat when and what I want, or don't want. I clean and tidy as I see fit. The down side is the cats are not good conversationalists, and there is no one to help out or blame when something goes wrong. But it is what it is, so embrace it and grow with it.

I come from a family of football fans. I have watched exactly ONE football game on purpose. That was a superbowl, the commercials were supposed to be the selling feature, and they SUCKED that year. I live in Nebraska where football (Cornhuskers -college level) is the passion. I don't give a rip. So, short answer is I have no idea what football is about, and don't care. And proud of that.

FML, I am not allowed to give blood. I lived in Germany in the mid to late 80s, had a baby there in 1988. That baby can give blood, but I still can't. I might be a carrier of Mad Cow disease. So much makes sense now.
What words do you associate with anxiety?
HippieChick58 comments on Sep 3, 2019:
Uncertainty, when I feel like my job is threatened. My job training was not going well because I could not hear, which I will be forever thankful that my supervisor was able to figure out that I might need (and now have) hearing aids. However, she has a different approach to many aspects of our job, and some of the things she has done/said I think were wildly inappropriate. I was compared to a whiny millennial. Mind blown, however my anxiety levels have been off the chart. So now that I have been retrained and I'm back to where I was before, she has not followed up to discuss how things are going. We had some communication with Employee Health that I needed different headsets to use. She did not follow up with either me or EH that they were ordered. Since the whiny millennial and other OMG discussions with her I've tended to avoid direct contact with her. I just wanna keep my head down, be left alone to do my job and survive til I can really retire.

I don't "need" a man. If I can't do it myself I have daughters that will help. If the daughters can't do it they have long term partners that are the nicest guys ever. Between the six of them, if they can't do it I will hire someone to do it. Would I like to have a man in my life, sure. But not to "do things" for me, just to be with me.
Happy Labor Day!

Omaha has several meet up groups that I belong two, one I am quite active with. The group I am most active with is Omaha Metropolitan Area Humanists Association. We have a weekly book club, a monthly social meeting, and a almost monthly educational type of meeting. Great people, great times. We also have REASON which is Rationalists, Empiricists And Skeptics Of Nebraska. I don't make as many meetings because they're not good times/locations for me. Omaha also has a Baby Boomers group, I've attended some functions with them, not as enjoyable for me, but still good to hang out with folks about my age.
Very important information......

When I was a kid we had to give our old tomcat a bath, he got into something that he shouldn't have been licking off himself. He was a tough but sweet old guy. It still took 3 of us to give him a bath. One kid had the front feet, one the back feet, and one the body. He made lots of noise but never clawed any of us. Now I think back on that and I wonder what the hell dad was thinking to make us do that without supervision. Oy.

I belong to a Secular Humanist group, and we have a book club that meets weekly. We have had a new couple find us and join us. They came from deeply religious backgrounds. They were missionaries in Eastern Europe and House Parent at Boy's Town. In the past year they have left their church and changed their lives because they came to the realization that the bible and organized religion is bunk. So, your new correspondent could be on a similar journey. It's damn scary when it has been your whole life and your income/position is tied up in it, to have enlightenment dawn.

There is a small town in Nebraska that was pretty much wiped out, they are thinking it is time to move the town to higher ground. Ya think? I am not sure if they should disband the town and move to neighboring towns that might need the business or just move the town. It is not like there is a mandate for the town to exist. I who have lived a somewhat nomadic life have no ties to any towns. Others may not agree. Since I realize I don't have a dog in that fight and the outcome will not affect me much, I simply don't care.

Guilting someone is another form of emotional abuse. My grandmother used it like a sledge hammer. She would threaten to have a heart attack if we did not comply. One of my brothers looked her full in the face and said "go for it." That was the last time she pulled that little trick. It was a great lesson for me. I don't think I can be guilted now. It just isn't my responsibility to take care of your whims.

HippieChick58 comments on Aug 29, 2019:
Part of the reason I rejected religion and especially the Xian church is the treatment of women. I am female (stating the obvious I hope) and I have daughters. When they were teens I read the buybull three times cover to cover. One of the stories that kept bothering me was the story of Tamar, daughter of King David. She is raped by her brother and her life is ruined, and yet she is the daughter of the King and it definitely wasn't her fault. Looking at my own daughters I thought WT(not so holy)F! So I started looking with more feminist eyes and I thought this is absolutely BS. Then my critical thinking skills came back to life, it did take a few years, but when you start really questioning stuff you won't like the answers. Then look at all the world religions and it is so much of the same BS over and over again. The movies of the Zeitgeist series were about the final nails in the coffin. So, why am I an atheist... because my eyes are open and I am a thinker. God calls for rape, pillage, and plunder. He created us in his image, gave us sharp minds, planted that damn tree; and then he wants us to be sheep. He loves us so much that he will burn us forever in hell if we don't love him. Yeah, that is just messed up. Thanks but no.

Way back when I was a SAHM (Stay At Home Mom) sometimes I'd nap when the kids were at school. I'd have a cat in front of me and the dog (golden retriever) behind. And when I'd sleep I'd dream I heard the doorbell. If the dog was still in bed with me, and the cat was still asleep I'd know it was only a dream. If the doorbell really rang the cat would hide and the dog would be waiting eagerly for me to open the door so he could meet his newest friend.

Our docs follow the AAP, and sometimes parent get really, REALLY pissed at us that the doctor didn't know NOT to do that. Sorry honey, this is what our docs do, call your insurance and bitch at them. I think there is a hearing screening at 4 months, if insurance doesn't cover it will cost you over $100.

IMHO, life is just to short to try to deal with other people's issues when they are not making any attempt. This person seemed to enjoy needling and nit picking. Nope. As I am a mod/group owner, if I block personally I block in my groups as well. Owners/mods have to be able see what is posted in our groups. Next new years day I will likely repeat the experiment with the exception of that one person. What was really interesting of the 4 or 5 that I had blocked, several had dropped off the site.

1. I regret listening to my dad that nursing was a thankless profession. I'd have been a damn good nurse. He would not sign the papers for me to go to college but he did sign for me to join the Army. At the time the Army did not need medics, and I didn't even consider that route. 2. I regret not getting any continuing education earlier. I was convinced by my now ex that I wasn't too bright and didn't need to go to school. 3. When I finally did go to finish a degree I stopped at an Associates. Had I been able to stick the marriage out longer I'd be better off now, but I was eager to end the charade.

They don't do anything to protect the head, or much of the rest of the body. Besides, they would be heavy, and that is a burden I don't want to give any child.
Weird how it's faster and easier to find companies you want to boycott than it is to find companies ...

The thing to keep in mind. If you like it, plant it and see what happens. If you don't like it, rip it out and start over. If it dies, start over. Gardening is opportunity for creation and re-creation. It is also a never ending project, don't ever be afraid to experiment. And keep a journal, keep notes on what work, what didn't and why if you can figure it out. My late former Mother In Law moved into her house when my ex/her son was 3ish and lived there til the end of her life. She had extensive garden journals. My longest duration in one house was my childhood home, 13 years there. As an adult I've been in my current home six years. It is a never ending project.

My response: life has said "suck it up, buttercup. Life's a bitch and then you die." No life isn't fair. Life is life.

I just have to say that I love this group! So much fun reminiscing! Thanks for all the posts.

Thank you!! I love you all!! I love sharing stories and memories. I would swear on a stack of buybulls that this site keeps me sane, and ya'll are as good as 1000 shrinks. If I believed in a god I'd ask him/her/it to bless this site because it really keeps me going. FB is great, but my heartland is here with y'all. I love being a boomer, we're special.
Who are going to believe, Fox Spews or your lying eyes?
