Exclamation Costa Rica Scam

Hey Folks,

Be advised that if you are in Costa Rica and thinking of doing a skoolie, do not get involved with a Mr. Sam Alfaro, of Playa Coyote, Nicoya, Costa Rica, who goes by the handle of Skoolie Sam Conversions. He talks a good story but it is all a sham and you should not believe a word he says.
I got involved with him only to be ripped off for $15,000.00.
You have been warned...

Interesting, do you have any more details? I guess I'm just confused as to how someone would get 15k into a scam before they finally realized what it is. Most scams tend to unravel after 15 minutes of investigative digging, much less 15k.

I assume you mean the member samplayacoyote that you interacted with in this thread here? https://www.skoolie.net/forums/f9/bu...lie-20730.html

Did you two meet up then?

With the number of scammers waiting in the shadows here in the US, I'm even more suspicious when of it when I'm abroad. I guess I'm just a skeptic on things, with all of the overseas phone scammers, "irs" agents wanting paid with amazon gift cards, and don't forget all of the "Nigerian prince" emails out there. If I'm contacted only once a day, something is amiss.

Being that you have 2 posts, and he has 3, I'd take all of this with a grain(or 3) of salt.
