Why is everyone being so german about this?

 

What’s he got to gain by lying to people on the forum? He’s not using his story to take your credit card details. He’s looking for your advice, 

 

Why are you so "typically British"? Complaining about others but not achieving anything constructive yourself is very popular on the British Isles these days ... isn't it? 

So where are your constructive advices? Have you 'forgotten' them in your indignation?

@Smaug: he already gave himself away in the first sentence! A Mexican called Bob, haha.

 

I once met a friend of a friend's distant cousin who was named Boberto.  His name was anglicized to 'Bob'' by the gringos cause they were too lazy to pronounce his full name. Not saying this applies to Mr Jamaica cool runnings, but Mexico did have a 'bob'sled team that was inspired by Jamaica  (or was it the other way around?)

You have a lot to learn about con jobs.  You dont start of by asking "I can haz moneys", you start with some sob story, you befriend people, you ask for a little money, just for tonight.  Gradually you up the ante, maybe your brother is flying over but he doesnt have a credit card, could someone else pay and he will transfer the balance to you, or he needs to pay his medical bills and his money is all in mexico but dont worry he will do an international transfer...

 

This has scam written all over it, its not even the first time Ive seen this scam on Toytown, there was someone else a few months back with a similar story.

Oh Yes... 

totally correct observation - because I spent those years left side of the pond, and found another forum more suitable for that living arrangement.

 

Now I'm back in Germany, so this TT forum maybe my new home. Haven't decided yet. Not sure if I like the format, or the style, here. We'll see. I didn't start out as somebody from Jamaica, and then came back as somebody from Mexico, though ;)

 

Anyways - back on topic - I am intrigued to know, what OP actually is trying to get from this Fred? Sympathy? Entertainment? Help? Advice? BTW - just another question - where exactly is he (and his wife and baby) staying now? Can't be Wismar, that place thinks he left for good. Can't be Berlin either, he was just there for a brief medical procedure. Maybe that's the purpose of this story - find housing?
