Scammed on the Streets

In Life, Personal, Rant on June 17, 2018 by lexie-chan Tagged: , , , , , ,

I can’t believe it, my dad got scammed while he was on his way to Tony’s to do some grocery shopping. My ghad.

He was just gonna pick up some tuna at Tony’s so he told me that me and my mom can just wait for him in the car. And truly, it’s an errand that won’t take long but it lasted almost 30 minutes! Why? Because a family from ‘Dubai’, stopped him on his tracks to ask for ‘help’.

He didn’t elaborate much but at the end of their conversation, he ended up giving them his ring in exchanged for four 18k gold rings.

IT’S SO OBVIOUS THAT IT WAS A SCAM COZ IT’S TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE BUT NOPE, MY DAD FELL RIGHT THROUGH IT.

He was so easily convinced by the small 18k inscription at the back of the ring which is something that’s sooooo easy to do. Ugh. Even I can do it but that was it, the proof of its value…

And my ghad, the rings looked so ugly too! And the color is questionable. My mom used to own a pawnshop so she knows a little bit how to check for real and fake gold and those rings were screaming fake all over!!!

I’m just… I honestly can’t believe my dad really fell for that so it’s such a shame… he traded off a ring he’s had ever since I could remember for those fakes. Ugh… I was so pissed with him the whole day but after that, I softened a bit.

Sighhhhh.

How terrible.
