About The Book
Have you ever been scammed? I am not an internet scammer. I only play one in this book. To research my character, Larry Daniels, I infiltrated the seedy underworld of the scammer and allowed myself to be scammed over and over again. This book is a result of my social media experiment. It is also a romance… if one can believe a book about scammers can cut through the internet fakeness and involve true love. My hope is that this book helps people to avoid losing their hearts and their money.
Well, the scammers never actually got any money from me. I used clever techniques to keep them waiting. Let me tell you; this is a dark place and my life was affected by the experience.
I learned a lot. I was threatened, harassed, and even cursed. Yes, I received actual curses of death, once specifically in a horrible car accident. This was unnerving, but now I am a scammer expert. So, I added all this knowledge to the pages of this book. Some moments were 100% true and taken word for word from my scammers. Some were made up, but I based all on true accounts.
Scammers are clever and will always find ways of beating the system.
The irony is, even the scammers from other parts of the world can be likable and charming on many levels. That’s why they are good at it.
This book is a result of my social media experiment. I’m glad it’s over, and I hope it helps people to avoid losing their hearts and their money. There are valuable tips about scammers at the end of the book to help you if you have been scammed.
