That was a very selfless act of kindness on her behalf. I always figure that a charitable act is always paid back a hundred fold in one way or another, may God bless you and your wife she sound like a saintly person.

DFR... Scam or no scam it is the act that matters. *My wife ran into someone at our local target sitting in his car weeping and had to stop to check on him. There is more to it but the short version is he had lost a family member and could not afford the gas for the trip. *I had just lost my job and money was tight but she went to an ATM and pulled out $20 and he was still there when she returned. *She came home and shared the story with me and apologized for give g away $20 and hoped she was not scammed. *

I don't think it was a scam from the details that would take too much space... *

Bottom line is I love her for this act as you do your wife. * What counts is the act and in the end we have only one person to impress and we all have one final judgment. *You and your wife are amazing and nothing should tarnish the wonderful intention she had.

God bless you both!

Everything you do (good and bad), comes back 7 fold.
Prepare to be blessed.
Obviously, you already have been, you married that lady.

RAK = random acts of kindness. I've done this a bunch of times. Just buying someone something or paying their bill at the check-out or stoping and helping someone; the look on folks faces is more than enough reward.

For those here who look upon the possible dark side - you'd find fault with the way a guy is hung up on a cross!

I think that was magnificent. Sure, I worry about all the scammers out there too; but, when you think about it, those two could never engineer something like that. Bravo to you both!
