I've always wondered how 'stupid' and how 'rich' you have to be to get trapped in these scams - dating or otherwise. If I had a phone call asking me to pay say 1000HKD, I'd be double and triple checking to make sure that it was legit. There was that son of a Orthopaedics professor who got diddled out of millions of HKD - a relative youngster. Don't you ask your dad/ family about these requests to send big sums of money away. Unless of course, this is all chump change to them.
