He and his buddy were trying to pay half of the $4,000 cost of going to London on a school sponsored trip and his dad said he had to come up with his share of the money. He had several antidotes about his dad and his conservative ideas which, of course, sounded legitimate to me. Both young men were very open, chatty and completely at ease. Even asked me if I had some chores they could do for me.
I really thought I was scam proof because I am so skeptical of all phone calls, internet offers, etc. etc. but these two "charmers" had me convinced that if I bought the subscription I could donate it to service personnel overseas. I felt I could help them and do something for the troops as well.
