Life Goes On
Written on February 8, 2020
Hello everyone. Sorry for the delay and the reason is because a lot of things has been going on around here. Nothing good, so here goes, “I’ve been scammed”. I do have to say that it is the most frustrating and enraging feelings you can get. I have been trying to figure out how I could have prevented from being scammed but after dealing with people helping me with this situation, I realized, everything I’ve done to prevent this to happen, was the right thing to do. These deceptive people are very good at their jobs and they use all kind of tactics to steal your money. I am not embarrassed about the whole thing because I know I didn’t do anything wrong. It was all online and through my PayPal account – PAYPAL!! I’ve noticed all these strange activities right away and took immediate action. I made all the necessary steps in order to minimize the damage and it paid off. They refunded me some of my money, so I am still hoping to get everything back. PayPal has very strict guidelines when it comes to refunds but they knew my account was compromised. The bottom line is always look for red flags because these online services are just hunting grounds for money-grabbing scammers. If you think this cannot happen to you, think again. There is no such thing as good protection these days, so welcome to the world of fraudsters, which are the modern day equivalent of pickpocketing. The moment you think it’s the end of the line and you’re safe, that’s when shift happens. What is more daunting is that it happens so fast. So keep in mind that these thieves are always coming up with new ways to cheat people out of their money, so it’s likely that new scams will appear in the coming years.
Many people have been deceived into forking over their hard-earned money to online con artists. That is why I am posting this not to get sympathy from anyone but as a cautionary tail for everyone else. I know that life goes on but in this kind of situation, you are robbed of more than money. You have been robbed of your self-confidence and your self-esteem and that kind of loss is not to be taken lightly. Now I am trying to get my life back on track. I’ve always been a firm believer of “things happen for a reason” and how every step, every fall that comes my way will lead to something bigger and better. Believe me, it’s no easy thing but I am making some headway each day. I am slowly finding strength and my worth and never be afraid to talk because there is light after the darkness.
Let’s rant about something else now…
WOW, look at this photo of Charles. This doll is genuinely scary. Can you actually think you can punt this thing like a football? All I know is they did a very good job of making Chucky creepy as hell.
This creepy doll came from the Prop Master himself, Michael Lawrence, who seem to enjoy putting the fear of evil into small playful objects.
These dolls certainly gets under your skin and a good reason to pack it up and leave. You all know by now I do not like these things. I bought a Chucky doll for my daughter last year (big mistake!!!) and to be honest, I have a hard time staying in the same room with it. Crazy yes but creepy, so creepy and everytime I look at his blue eyes gazing at me inquisitively, he’s probably wondering why I haven’t welcomed him home yet! (gees, try to say this five times fast), so Chucky can slice my throat open when I sleep.
I do get teased a lot and some people take great pleasure in springing scary dolls on me but that’s ok, I do keep my guards up and maybe someday, the constant doll contact will make me get over this fear. For now, it’s time for me to go, so I can try to make some sense of what happened to me. All I know is I am trapped in a house with Chucky and the rest of the dolls. Believe me, there are more of them than there are of me. So, if you don’t hear from me for awhile, it’s not because I am busy or anything, it’s because Chucky and his cult has kidnapped me and taken me to their tiny, creepy lair.
Oh, I almost forgot… Here are the Five Finalist of the Charles Fan Art Contest: @scr33m3r – @funnunhorrorshow – @luisa_garo89 – @aulia_nuzilal_haq – @mthm777. PRETTY IMPRESSIVE! The final winner of the top five will be announced on Tuesday, February 11th. Good luck to ALL of you…
