Someone cheated you?
Someone defrauded you?
Someone conned you out of your money?
Don’t lie to yourself.
You weren’t. You knew there was something wrong with that guy.
But you chose too ignore your gut.
You chose to be greedy rather than careful.
And so you lose your money.
If you’re honest with yourself, you’ll admit that you knew you would probably be conned.
You can’t fool an honest man.
