Maybe the OP decided to post it in two forums after figuring out that the Intro section doesn't have the ability to reply. (I happen to find this especially funny because there's a thread about missing the opportunity to do so and wait for posters to wander to other sections before we shred them. Yes, I do have a weird sense of humor.)
OK, OP, I do have to tell you that the post is messed up from the start. We're not supposed to be doing this thing called blacklisting around here. You can read about that here: http://www.collarchat.com/m_1163969/tm.htm That's over and above my personal opinion that nobody should be posting what they think is another person's first and last name, which in my personal view is akin to outing. If you're going to say anything about what "good" people involved in BDSM do, I probably have to say that outing isn't one of them.
When people make posts like these, it makes me wonder what it is about them that they attract scammers or why scammers target them. Usually, the answer to this has to do with the age of the party looking (middle age or more) and the age group of the people they are perusing (usually much younger). It's not a perfect science but after reading threads like this all of these years, they are almost always written by people complaining about younger women. Males younger than yourself write them too, however those tend to be about women in their age group.
You didn't give the person any money directly. (By the way, giving someone money kind of rules out the "thief" part. If you give someone money, they aren't stealing it from you.) Instead, you drove ten hours to figure out if this person was telling the truth or not. I would have thought you'd figure this out when this person told you they were involved with a Senator for ten years, who gave her a house, but I guess never gave her anything else that she could hock to pay an electric bill. Wasn't there anything about what you wrote in your post that just plain sounded ridiculous to you?
I'm going to give a little credit here. At least the person researched and found an address that wasn't occupied with other people. She gets points.
Why would you continue wasting your time on all of this unless it was for you personal amusement? (Like I'm doing now because I find this funny as hell.) You spent all this time interacting with this person, plus drove ten hours on top of whatever other time you wasted, even though you already knew she was trying to get money out of you. Wouldn't it just be easier to say that you're not interested in anybody who asks for money? Problem solved.
To date I have yet to meet one person that is who they say they are.
Dude, I'm going to tell you that there is something you are doing wrong. I base this on the fact that a lot of people from the forums have met each other over the years, whether that be friends, kink, or actually meeting the person they are involved with. If this thread even makes it to two pages, you're going to find at least some people who have met other people from the site, including myself.
Please start using your brain cells. Thanks.
