    1. My View:What an interesting quick poignant read. And the truly sad part is – this is not a fictionalised account, this is not a hypothetical situation, this scenario is real and is real to many many many lonely people whose only crime is wanting to be loved. This account is so familiar – in my case – not the romance scam but the money scam. Who hasn’t had the email or the letter regarding money held in trust? So much money. A few years ago my father (now deceased) excitedly showed me a l [...]

    2. Online scams are rife. There are the business scams, the get rich quick scams but this book was more about the romantic scams. Taking advantage of lonely, often older people who are vulnerable and looking for someone to pay them attention, show them love. They are then conned into giving these people money and the emotional manipulation continues until they have been scammed out of thousands of dollars and are left destitute. The really sad thing about all this is that many of these poor people [...]

    3. In my mid to late teens, through to my early twenties, I ran a creative writing forum.It was never about being the biggest or the best, it was a place for myself and a few friends to keep in touch, and, with the addition of their close friends and so on, it grew into a bit of a community. Some people were local, some I’d never met but felt like I had. I’m still in touch with a number of them to this day.There was one instance, though, where a new person joined the site and started posting, m [...]

    4. A short, sad, story about the allure of internet scammers for lonely people. There's a full length book in the topic, but this bit-sized version hits the emotional marks pretty solidly.

    5. Really interesting in depth look into online scams and their victims. My only criticism was that it was too short, and I felt like there was so much more to come!

    6. Sofija Stefanovic pays a visit to her friend Bill, an eighty year old man who fell victim to a Nigerian love scam, fleecing him of over $80,000. Although the police eventually found Bill and informed him that he was being scammed and that he should change all of his email addresses and passwords, Sofija suspects that Bill hasn’t done that. It’s gone on too long and now he’s sucked into the story he’s being fed, he’s invested in the scam.Through Bill and his story, Sofija investigates f [...]

    7. I enjoyed this short piece of writing. Stefanovic does a great job of enabling the reader to feel the frustration when trying to reason with victims of online scams, ultimately coming to the conclusion that logic is not enough to get through to a victim who has become addicted to the online relationship/scam. While its depressing at times, it offers a realistic look at the dynamics involved in online scams. It effectively demonstrates just how easy it can be to fall victim to it, particularly am [...]

    8. This quick read introduces the reader to the tip of the iceberg that is cyber scam dedicated to fleecing the retiree of their retirement savings and their cashed up assets that were meant to fund their living until life's end. The self funded retiree is encouraged by governments but not so well protected when it comes to cyber crime and internet scams. Bill, the older man in search of love is just one such victim. Stefanovic has produced a good read that suggests that the retirees and other unsu [...]

    9. You're Just Too Good To Be True by Sofija Stefanovic is a novella length book about online romantic crimes scammers, which is far more of a problem than I realised and a pretty heart breaking phenomenon. Ms. Stefanovic profiles one lonely older man in Australia as he gets swindled out of his life savings and brings in some psychology experts and the police team that is trying to keep tabs on this growing threat. Scammers often invest a huge amount of time hooking their victims in with promises o [...]

    10. This is a lovely and insightful Kindle short. It looks at how internet scammers do their work and get away with it. The book takes a very personal view, telling the stories of the elderly and the vulnerable who utterly refuse to believe they've been duped. The author manages to tell these stories respectfully and carefully, which leaves us both frustrated and concerned for the subjects. A quick and informative read, well worth your time.

    11. Bit depressing hard to believe so many apparently elderly vulnerable people get taken for a financially devastating ride by scammers
