so didnt know that. still the fact that someone would attempt to trick u into believing they were also a cancer patient is unsettling....

I can't think of a better place to solicit for a prospective wife or a husband for someone wanting to move west from a third world or eastern european country. Short life expectancy and high probability of brisk inherritance. Its sad, quite low but brilliant. :)

Tongue Out

There was a recent article in the NY Times on this very thing, and I've seen it elsewhere in this and other forums.  We want to be trusting, but there are some really sick people out there who take advantage of our trust.
