I offered to turn the light on for a patient so he could see his tray and he (a cardiac patient no less) throws out his hands and yells "NO, DON'T TURN ON THE LIGHT!!! THIS IS SO MUCH EASIER TO EAT IN THE DARK!!!" Sad thing was he wasn't kidding!!!
OK Chirs, I MEAN HEATHER, we know you're legit!!!!
Wonder why Lever5 hasn't given us the bank info yet??? Anyone else a little hurt by that??????

....................uhmm,that post is 6 months old............uhmm,only one hit on a Google search........ever.
email addys are very easy to get and so are sob stories. A sucker is born every minute and so is a scam.
If that person was sincere they would have invited us to see the community and we would have extended the same courtesy if we were on the other side.
They could have posted the paticulars right here on the BB. They didn't because there weren't any. Would you? I sure as heck would. I would regurgitate every sorid detail hoping someone would recognize either the supposed scammer or be aware. At least I would have an opportunity to get it off my chest. Have you ever seen someone who got ripped off?
That's were we got the phrase "singing like a canary".
My feeling is that they are not legit.
The guilt you are feeling is what they count on.

I didn't want to seem like I was attacking you. I just reviewed my post and thought it might come off that way. Since you are a fairly new poster on the board and you don't know me yet,I thought I would say that I like your posts and mean no ill will towards you

I figured I'd get totally flamed, but thanks for taking my tender psyche into account. You do make some very good points and I have been known to be gullible. . .
