After the Monday post, a few of the emails I received suggested that I should be flattered by all the attention I was getting from those men on Facebook. I am not, and neither should you be. Romance scammers rob men and women of millions of dollars each year.
Anyone can be a target. Here’s how it happens. You are on a dating or social media site (such as Facebook or Instagram) when an attractive person contacts you. They say all the right things and seem very genuine and perhaps hugely successful. The person may claim to be a busy model, a doctor, or a high ranking military official.

Pattern mixing can work when you use color and scale to play opposites against each other. My cotton blouse is a blue and white stripe, while my mask here is a blue and white polka dot.
The shoes are here and on clearance now. My bag is more than five years old—a similar bag is here, here, and here. Similar sunglasses are here. My sunscreen is here, and my tinted moisturizer in the color Light is here. I’m wearing Sheer Genius Conditioning Lipstick in the color Lily here.
The seatbelt crumpled my neat ironing job during the drive. The cotton top is here. I am wearing a size medium. The white pants are here.
I was on my way to visit with my parents and then the grocery store when I stopped by Mr. Mickey’s office so that he could take a few photos for me. He works part-time for his daughter, who bought my VintageJewelrySupplies.com company a couple of years ago. He isn’t ready to stop working, so he keeps busy every day.
