Please help me…

I started chatting with this girl I met on an online dating site. Things were going well, so I asked her to video chat. She said that it would be more fun to meet face to face first, so we scheduled a coffee date uptown. I didn’t have a car at the time, and it was a little out of my way, but she seemed really cool, so I thought it would be worth it.

I took the hour long bus ride, but when I got there, I didn’t see her anywhere. She called me a minute later, and she was in tears. She said that her car had broken down, so she called the towing company, but then she realized that she had left her wallet at home. I said that I was sorry and asked where she was so I could come help. She told me she had no idea, and asked if she could use my credit card to pay the towing company and she would pay me back later that day. I started to get freaked out, so I asked her what towing company. She wouldn’t answer any of my questions and just kept crying and yelling at me telling me that I didn’t care about her.

Finally I hung up on her because she was too emotional. I went back home and tried calling her back but the phone number was disconnected. I went back online and saw that her profile was deleted. It turns out that the whole thing had been a scam. It really freaked me out. I couldn’t believe that it was so easy to trick a dating service.
