Hi from susan-- pls read this from Catherine, and pls 4ward to everyone so they will not get caught out.
I just saw a petition asking for donations, and I remember this same person asking for money just a few weeks ago.
There are four recent petitions asking for money for dogs via chipin.
I searched using the email address and found this plea for money for cosmetic surgery for Vanessa Pereira:
My name is Vanessa and I created this blog because this is the only way I found to accomplish my dream and try to heal a trauma that has caused me much emotional problems throughout my life, since I was a child!
I've seen so many people in need (or not), lying to people on the Internet and inventing the wildest stories to get money! I prefer to tell the truth! I prefer to show my real problems for people and let them judge whether it is worthwhile to donate or not! I think so, no lying, being honest, I have God's help to reach my goal!
I am a girl of good appearance, but I have a problem that affects me a lot. My ears are very large and looks very forward! I have the famous "floppy ears", but mine are very evident. I have very little amount of hair and they are very flat, so they don't hide my ears at all! In college I had just one friend because children know how to be cruel and teased me a lot. Then I felt excluded from other classmates! Yes, after all I'm very shy!
I've done therapy, I've tried to forget about this problem but nothing works. This makes me suffer a lot!
I have no money to perform a plastic surgery. I have a job but my salary is very low and I need to eat and pay essential bills, then I can never save money for the surgery!
I once received an offer to work as a model in magazines and TV commercials, because my face is very beautiful, but the model agency asked me to set my ears as a prerequisite! I felt humiliated and lost this job because I had no money to do this!
I know that many people will send me messages such as: "You must accept yourself as you are" etc. Thank you people, I appreciate this kind of message but I can tell you for sure that it really doesn't works! I've already tried!
I think only someone who has or had the same problem I have, knows how important it is and how it can end the self esteem of a person! Especially when we lose great opportunities because of this problem! It's very, very sad ...
Nobody is obliged to understand, much less to donate! I am humbly asking because I am desperate to have a better and happier life! Unfortunately I can not afford this for myself, then I need to ask for help!
If you want to help me, please make your donation via Paypal: http://https:/...77d66ee or send it to this paypal account: email@example.com
I thank you very much and I sincerely hope that God bless you all and give you double what you are doing for me!
My blog: Please, I need your help!
Sincerely, Vanessa Pereira
This might jyst be a coincidence, but there is a Facebook entry today under Rescue Inc which is asking for donations to save 3 puppies, which you might like to look at.
Hi Everyone, regarding Vanessa my friend donated to her, i contacted my friend and told her to be careful as there was no real info or proof regarding these dogs. I posted and told this Vanessa that i would'nt donate until there was evidence of these dogs. I then sent her an introduction message asking her for her address or the vets address but i got nothing back from her. My gut instinct told me she was a scam i'm glad i did'nt donate but feel bad for my friends that did.
THANKS VAL!!!for the info! Its first time i read that from that man!! I share it on FB and FORWARD it to my friends there! must I do it here too?... and am i not sending it to late?...cause its from a 1 moth ago?...
Linda - you did exactly the right thing. Scammers get into a group, get $ and leave (as this girl did) before anyone can catch her. All Care2 can do is un-join her. But to all of you, if you are ever unsure... you can flag the person or copy the message and send it to Eric - Care2 support with the help request form at the bottom. These are the first he looks at or anything flagged as inappropriate. In the 6 months I have been here, I have run across 3-4 scammers. Linda, I am sorry for your friend.
Val - it's difficult to know if some is scamming. First look at when they joined. Can you do that on FB? If it's recently (here too) BEWARE!
AnaLiza, I think we are safe from this scammer anyway, but always beware before giving money, giving out personal e-mail addresses, or any personal information unless you really know someone. Unfortunately not everyone in this world has good intentions.
