  1. #1

    Ripped Off

    Passed my DSC 1 in 2013 paid 100.00 deposit to go stalking in Scotland 2014 rang the person many times during the year got lots of promises and excuses but no stalking I have come across many con men in my 66 years of life and I thought this was a genuine nice guy. Is this normal in the stalking community.

    I'm afraid stalkings becoming a rat race of which there are many rats ,the good thing with the SD is you can now do your homework as its a small world is deer stalking and good and bad reputations can soon be found .
    happy to say there are some good guys guiding on the sd .

    I'm sad to report it's becoming more & more common in everyday life on the whole. Sorry you fell foul of this guy

    Don't let it put you off though. For every bad apple there are 50 decent & genuine blokes
    A Man should be wise, but never too wise. He who does not know his fate in advance is free of care

    No it's not normal in the stalking community, but as they say it only needs one bad apple.

    Sorry to hear you got ripped off, but the very generous offer from sikamalc, is the sort of genuine unselfish behaviour I have witnessed many times on this forum

    Sorry to hear of it, but my 18 months of experience in the stalking world is that there's far more of the spirit Malc has displayed with his offer than there is con men, bad feeling and selfishness. There are plenty of members on here who will testify the same!
