Good idea contacting them via social media! I might try it with JB hi Fi, even just to ask them if they educate their staff on the more...

Yes, your situation has been referenced a few times in the comments, with someone even suggesting you were my husband :P Didn't laugh at...

You're welcome! Sharing the story was to inform more people who may have not heard about these more elaborate scams before. It wasn't to be...

I hope your mum hasn't been too affected by her scam :( Thanks, I will keep you in mind when we know how many cards we've got to sell!

Only if it's in the Perth/Peel region, and you can chuck in a boat/skipper for free. It'd be nice to have a local getaway this weekend.

Yeah we were just told it was against the Coles policy to sell more than 5. And unfortunately hubby was looking agitated, so probably the...

To the credit of the staff member at JB Hi fi, she did warn me about scams, but gave the ATO one as an example... And I was like "Oh yes,...

If you can be bothered reading through the comments, it's where I either I get scammed selling the cards, or other people get scammed by me...
30/04/2020 - 14:49
It was actually the very first thing I asked - if you ended up reading the whole back story (which was more for educational purposes) then...

Thanks! I think he knows he's lucky ;) I don't respond well to criticism (can you see how many times I've replied in this thread??) and...

Chuck a "honey" in there and then it'll be believable.
29/04/2020 - 20:26
Not as funny the second time round.
29/04/2020 - 20:13
Ohh, so that's why we don't have children yet!

Looked up at the sun and got blinded - it facilitates the drowning later.
29/04/2020 - 19:07
I can't offer any helpful advice since our situations are quite different - but I feel horrible for her! I'm not sure if it makes any...

Next step for supportive wife: convince husband to embarrassingly reveal to friends that he's fallen for a scam. Thanks for the tip though
29/04/2020 - 18:58
I'll take your word for it - I'll keep you in mind once we figure out what we are doing :) 👍
29/04/2020 - 18:56
I'd be a genius... It's well beyond my capabilities to cook up this thread to convince people I won't scam them with "unused" gift cards....
29/04/2020 - 18:55
I'm actually not quite sure how to take this, considering I don't know if your previous comment was a subtle snub or not. And also that...
29/04/2020 - 18:03
Cheers for also looking at the positives! We are more bummed about being silly enough to be caught out, and the inconvenience and "wasted"...
29/04/2020 - 17:27
Shame you don't have a video cos otherwise I'd DM you to compare notes
29/04/2020 - 17:19
Hahaha - there won't even be a contention. I will begrudgingly look after the finances, and he will happily let me.
29/04/2020 - 14:12
Thank you for this. Perhaps you didn't see my early reply about his anxiety either. Ironically, my husband also detests sycophants and he...
29/04/2020 - 13:41
Thanks for your perspective :) We are better for having each other, despite what our pockets currently say! It's constant learning curve,...
29/04/2020 - 13:32
Maybe one day I will come back to this thread and you can tell me "I told you so". For now I'm extremely content with my nice and honest...
29/04/2020 - 12:53
Yes there are a lot of posts - probably led by me replying - so I don't blame you. Initially there was a high percentage of irrelevant ones...

They are iTunes gift cards bought at Coles - I wish they were Coles cards! I'd pretty much prefer any other gift card apart from these!...
29/04/2020 - 12:06
Thanks, yes I read that. I'll be looking into it - not sure it'll work for my credit card though since I wasn't the one being directly...
29/04/2020 - 12:02
These scammers are tricky cos he's not even on linkedin - my google search of his name with "Perth" tacked on the end brings a few other...

Way to downplay mental health. I'd say it's a bit cheap, even when we're all about the bargains here.
