One part I'll agree with. Why the green card? One way or another, his butt will HOPEFULLY sent away for this!
I hope the young lady will be okay after this. Never trust anyone or give your address online to a stranger- no matter who or how long you've been talking to him.

Thumbs down? With no explanation as to why? Well, I guess that shouldn't surprise me.

In my way of thinking, if you agree with a comment that says "Never trust anyone", then I guess I can see why you wouldn't want your name associated with that philosophy.

I'm pretty sure most people have had both "ups AND downs" throughout their lifetimes. I know I have. "That's life!", as the saying goes.

But, to get to the point where I would NEVER TRUST ANYONE is beyond my imagination. I truly have sympathy for anyone who has been so jilted (perceived, or actually) in their lives, that they have no one to trust.
