Scam Alerts in Relationship Romance

Hello Readers,

I hope all is well with you and that you are enjoying the summer!

I want to bring up the issue of scammers who are out there to take your money and your heart.

I will dedicate the next 5 weeks to this matter.

  • I’ve encounter this experience in the last  2 weeks and was able to survive and learn about this industry! Verification of this person as an Army Medical Doctor working for the United Nations checks out in the negative-as calls were made directly to the UN.  Yes, it’s a business (romance scams) and in a big way!  It’s global at this point!  I will write about the areas  of where a lot of this is going on outside of Ghana and Nigeria.

The number one thing you don’t do is  to,  not  give them your money, bank account number and other personal information.  And don’t tell secrets for them to use against you later for extortion money.

There are all kinds of scammers,  such as relationship, travel, business, senior, scammers and more.  Some  scammers are also looking for teens, and young people just stepping into life to explore the world,  looking for friendships and relationships-some looking for an escape from home or in a bad home life.

If you are presented to be a part of a relationship or romance with someone on social media,  be on the alert.   They love  sending you to Skype because they think they can control the conversation and move the relationship they way they want. (The person will not turn on the camcorder is another red flag of many.)  When you ask too many questions, they go negative on you and want to know “why are you harsh to me” ; something like that. Don’t let that scare you. (you know now that this is a part of the scheme)  Then they want to get back to the love boat  mood.their comfort zone) Don’t let them change subject. You continue  to  ask your question.  I have never used Skype, and for some reason and with my communication experience, I was able to take control of the conversation and kick butt while doing it; and kick him the hell out of my life!

They operate fast and the relationship is escalated at a speed that will shock even you.  Sooner or later, the person will have a need for money or find ways for which you can send money.  If you get into that situation, just say you don’t send anyone money and why would you want a person who have nothing to offer you and should have  his or her own money.

These people work as a team and have a scripts (scripted letters, words, love expressions list) of love that is of a poetic nature, such as “I want you to be in my life forever”, ” I have sleepless nights thinking about you”,  “I love you forever” and more!)  Mind you , you have not even laid your eyes on that person and they will not allow you to see then in person because they have listed a fake picture on their profile;  they are  a scam.

They will right away divert your communication from the social media site they saw you on to their own e-mail site so as to get control of you and your mind/heart!

Sooner or later, an emergency will come up and  he or she needs money!  That’s when you come in. To be manipulated to send them money. Just don’t.  If you smell a hint of them wanting you to send them money, get it straight right away, you just don’t do such things with someone you don’t know.  They will go away faster if you put that out there in the beginning,  because their main goal is to extort money from you or to use secrets they ask of you against you.  So don’t tell all your business with a stranger.

I will write more about this in the next writing.   This industry of scamming is an education for me and I hope you learn on your own that it is a very dangerous one. There’s much psychology in how they play you.

Remember,  pictures they send you can be   and altered in all sorts of ways.

Guard your children against stranger approaching them on-line and social media. Monitor their sites; be inquisitive!  You could save their lives or at least to prevent the emotional pain involved.

Report any forms of extortion and unusual event to the social media consumer or support department and to the FBI.  From what I hear of, unsuspecting men and women have had horrible experiences, losing thousands of dollars to a con artist.  You can be smart, but these people are ruthless and know how to find their prey and go for the kill.  They look for those who are vulnerable in some way or off guard.  People who have been scammed are doctors, lawyers, nurses, professors, teachers; as you see, even professional people have been scammed, big time.

So,  monitor your emotions and don’t let someone tell you what you don’t need-a Problem!  LOVE YOURSELF FIRST AND YOU WILL SURVIVE AN ATTACK BY A SCAMMER!

We can stop scammers by knowing how they operate and sharing the information with others.   WHAT EVER YOU DO, DON’T GIVE THEM ANY MONEY AND THEY WILL DISAPPEAR!

I am one of the lucky ones, but let’s hope my next article is not “Murder She Wrote”.

Let’s keep in mind, that men can be scammed just as big time! And so I balance the article because  there are some real witches and bitches out there that prey on vulnerable men. (Only, men don’t talk about it to anyone  or is embarrassed to admit to what has happened to them,  where women seem to want to get revenge, more. )

Feel free to leave a comment of your thoughts and experience with scammers.

In God I trust!

Breathing Easier

Oxygen is what give life to all of our organs and can affect how you live your life and how you respond to it.

It is now pollen season and many people with other respiratory problems are feeling it. That is, having difficulty breathing or congestion.

You must be on top of your respiratory condition at all times . I am a nurse when I’m not doing other creative things, I specialize is respiratory  nursing. However, I’m only a nurse, not a Pulmonary Md.  So you should consult your doctor for your respiratory conditions.  I happened to be able to manage my own problems for now.  I am extremely allergic to albuterol ( it causes me tachycardia ) and really hate taking medications unless it’s a vitamin.

I have seasonal asthma but when the pollen season come, it seems to trigger my  asthma condition.  However, that is not what’s happening to me. I believe what I caught was a type of cold that hardly seem like a cold but the symptoms was there for a few days. Afterwards the asthma kicked in and I started taking my Primatene on a regular basis of at least 3 doses of 2 tablets a day. And then the pollen season kicked in.  Oh no, where are my allergy meds.  Now, I’m on them too, and they work!

That seem to be working for now, but what I find out is that there is increase secretions after eating where I believe a little reflux could be  occurring. Sometimes you don’t realize you are having reflux.  But if you find yourself coughing right  after eating, you could be having reflux. You might want to eat foods that don’t create so much mucous.   Check the color of your secretions, If you see bubbles, it’s coming from your lungs more likely.  If it is colored with what you might have eaten or drank, it’s  coming from your stomach.  

The one most important thing you should do at this time is to drink water after eating and to drink water all during the day and maintain your balanced meals.

The other thing that is a priority in all you do is to read the side affects and report to your doctor any recent diagnosis and adverse affects of your medication.

Many people don’t read the directions clearly and might not be getting the therapeutic affects of their medication. Advair,  for one, you are suppose to rinse your mouth afterwards with water. 

Breathing comfort is necessary for your total well being. I just wanted to bring these viewpoints to you because, it is necessary to take seriously your treatment and insights on breathing with ease.

Research and ask questions for what you need to know. Write down and keep a record of all the medicines and treatments you are on and to note what’s working and what’s not working for you. 

Keep your doctor aware if you happen to find that you are allergic to something so that they have it on their record. If you were not able to speak for yourself, at least if your doctor have all the information,  he or she can give the correct information.  Please don’t hide information. It could mean your life.  let those you’re close to like family members know a little about what you are going through.  Share family medical history because that could be your history, too and not even know it. 

Now go out and have the best day and don’t let the pollen season get you down. Like anything, its a fight to keep strong and healthy all the way around. Keep a positive mind and wake up with the fight to do battle in being in the best health possible. Double up on what it takes to be healthy. Take walks even if for a short period, breath deeply-from the diaphragm-and do all you can to keep up with chores in the home, paying bills, and maintaining a stress-free period in your life. Use the laws of distraction to not make seasonal allergies a focus point in your life. Continue reading Breathing Easier

Journaling To Help Organize Your Life

Hello Readers,

I hope you are have a wonderful day and is chalking up some sun and clean air. It’s a beautiful day here in New Jersey!  The topic for this article is about how journaling can help you organize your life.

I’ve just completed a Life Coaching course and is looking forward to using the tools  for the work I already do as a Nurse and working privately with others who are looking for a life Coach.
In many ways, we all are a life coach to somebody-be it your children, a friend or co-worker. The support of a Personal Life Coach can be very beneficial to

to those individuals who need one. That one-on-one is the special time to focus on a problem.
This is why I believe journaling is so important to you to get started.
After you have bought your journal, pens, and pencils, just remember to first identify your problem and write down what you can do about it. If it’s more than one problem, write them all down and attack the most pressing one or one that need your immediate attention and focus on that one.

Life can be overwhelming and it is no use to stress over it. Do a little at a time and go on to the next time.
Everyday, look at your journal book and check off what you have accomplished. Go out and celebrate your accomplishments and start on the second problem.
One thing you want to remember,

You Can Do It!

is not to go back into old habits of letting the problem escalate again. So check off still your first problem a section if you are maintaining the solution to the old problem.

By focusing on the solution, you will achieve your goals.
Be positive, maintain good health, and know that you can beat this problem, no matter what it is.
Look for resources that can help you. Look for someone, who might have an almost identical situation and support each other in overcoming  the issue. Also, don’t be afraid to seek professional help. Remember, you are not alone and should not feel bad because you are in this situation. Now is the time for growth and development for Your life.   Take the little steps to get it done!

Remember, you are not alone and you can succeed in solving your issues. 

So make Journaling  a big part of your life, for a better one for sure!

Keeping up with your life by journaling can reward you financially ,if you write down how you are spending your money and what you can do to save more.

The other day, I was at the Hobby Lobby Shop with my granddaughter. She is an awesome artist and works in many mediums.  I had bought her some very special art pens, her art teacher had uses in their art class,  that was a bit pricey and some other art supplies that I needed for myself.   I’ve just started going to this store and just love that they have a lot of products to inspire the creative mind.   I asked the lady  at the register if I needed a membership to get saving or could I check to see if they have coupons. She said, no they don’t have memberships but, yes, that she wait for me to google their store and get their coupon.  My granddaughter got it right away and we used it as well letting the lady I let go ahead of us,  use the coupon as well. We both saved $10.00 on our purchases.  It was amazing! This is an example of  why writing and journaling  what is important to you and to have those notes as a reminder.

You can make a special section of your journal a section just for the coupons you should use for the day and plan how to use coupons for future shopping.

I was impressed to hear Al Roker  of the Today show mention this morning, how he is going to make  journaling a part of his  New Year resolution .  Writing can be a joy to not only you but to others.  We all need to write more and to write letters to others.  I love the concept of those love notes you would place somewhere for your husband or cute inspirational notes you would put in you child’s lunch box.  Believe me, that is where the real love is. It’s in the Pen and paper, ya’ll.   (my southern instincts are starting to come back).  Maybe, we got this whole love thing wrong-to know that words can paint a beautiful picture of deep emotion, is a WOW!

I remember the day when pen pals was so popular.  Now, what Happened to that!

Happy New Year to everyone and Happy Journaling!  Write somebody!  Write Me!  And put some of that coupon savings in a little coin bank!
