I've been encountering live scammers, not spammers. It's sorta creepy and trippy. I feel like it's an indication that I'm really in a bad place LOL (Hell, that's where).

Scammer 1:
In order to add you to the payroll (this isn't in the course of employment but shopping loan products) I'll need your bank login, password and the answers to your security questions to review your relationship with the bank.

Scammer 2:
Option 1 A Cosigner with an 800 score
Option 2 A vehicle title from 2013 and up
Option 3 A collateral payment where you make 3 months in advance and start paying back in 5 months
Option 4 A property valuing twice the amount you are borrowing

Woah! Option 3 looks like a winner! And a huge tipoff. Their website is less than a month old and the company's address is conveniently located in an unidentified location directly next to a business complex but not part of it.

I'm now learning how people operate a scam. And that's disturbing. I only want to shop a financial product that works for me or mutual benefit, obvs.

Have you ever been scammed, or know somebody who has been?

The police department should employ me to shop scams. During the first scam I wanted to contact my bank and tell them what was happening, and then give the guy access to the account while the bank monitors his activities and collects data on him.

This is such a waste of my time and attention.
