I was contacted by this caller Yesterday for massage from backpage.com. Caller was asked to verify who he was and which then he explained to me that he could be found on a site called linked'in and he also sent over a copy of a résumé . I never search for him on LinkedIn after he sent over the resume which was probably my fault because I am normally very thorough .. Anyhow the caller came over and once over asked me if I accepted credit card when I thought he initially said he had cash.. So I let me him use his card. On his first few attempts to try and use his card it wasn't working (( so that should have been the first sign )) I finally gave up and told the caller that it was alright and let's try another time..but he insisted he could make it work and would just send the money western union online.. Which he did and canceled the western union one he received the service and left my location..
I believe that this is a scam ran by a group of men here on backpage in Atlanta I've noticed since I've been visiting in town there are a large amount of men using fake numbers offering different services and will try to scam u.. Normally I never accept any credit cards so I definitely have learn my lesson and will never go against my rules again..it's a shame because most of the men on backpage here in Atlanta doing bad things are the black men .. This guy honestly seem honest , but clearly he has done this before many times and my belief is that they might very well be a string of bad cops trolling the site..
