The first time I was scammed I was 17. I was working at a gas station and my boss talked me into loaning him some money so he could get a new paint job on his truck. We wrote a contract where I loaned him $500. He was to pay me back $100 a month for six months. The first month rolled around and he paid me the $100. 2 weeks later him and his family disappeared. He was managing 4 different gas stations at the time, and I found out later he had written that same contract with 3 other employees (1 from each gas station). Oh, and for those that are curious, it was a '48 Chevy he had restored, and the paint job was the last thing he needed. It was a nice truck. Have you ever been scammed? What was the scam?
