Have you ever been scammed before?

I got scammed a few times when I was younger, because I was so gullible and believed everything
now I never do a deal without a middle man or such.

Been scammed 3 times on here for a total of $675.

Only time i was scammed in real life was in New Orleans. I was walking around Canal Street with my brother when we were stopped a by a group of men. They looked visibly poor, maybe homeless for all I knew. They asked us if we wanted our shoes shined. I said yes, my first mistake.

Two of the five men started to shine our shoes and were asking us questions. They said "If i can guess where you got yours shoes, you pay us double. If I guess wrong, its free." Being the 17 year old dumbass I was, I agreed.

He said "Well if I had to guess, you got your shoes on Canal Street right in front of me on (whatever date it was, i forgot.)" I laughed it off and said well yeah i guess but i got them online at my house in Chicago. He said "that dont matter, right now you got them on, right here in front of me." He demanded I pay them $40 for shining mine and my brothers shoes. Two of these guys had at least 150 pounds on me so i was in no room to negotiate. Walked down to the ATM and had to give these guys 40 fucking dollars for a $5 shoe shine. I have been scammed and hacked multiple times.

Moral of the story: If anyone in New orleans asks you if you want a shoe shine, politely decline. Or dont, for all I care.
