Dear readers, they say what you don’t know can’t harm you; but my situation does not qualify to be included in that category because it was plain foolishness on my part. I was foolishly in love with a man who carefully, systemically, and wickedly swindled or scammed me. That was not all; Felix also slept with me, and made me terminate my pregnancies twice.
I met Felix on St. Valentine’s Day of 2012 when I went to pick up some snacks for a colleague in the office. I didn’t have a boyfriend at the time, so it didn’t take long for me to accept his proposal. Moreover, it was on a special day, and love was in the air. I also didn’t see anything wrong in accepting his request on a date that evening; and that was how it all started.
We went out on so many times, slept in each other’s house, and shared lots of business ideas. If only I knew Felix was only interested in making a fool of me; if only I knew what his intentions were.
Before Felix and I met, one of the greatest problems was trusting men. Why I decided to trust Felix was beyond me because he really set me back emotionally and financially. He turned me into an emotional wreck who may never recover for a very long time to come.
What actually happened was that he was able to talk me into financing a project. Felix sold me a dummy or non-existing project; and I fell for it. I invested all I had into this project thinking it was genuine. I got fooled thinking the house he called his home was actually his; but as it turned out, I was scammed.
Maybe it was greed or naivety on my part, but the truth of the matter is that my account is in the red all because I gave Felix money to invest in a business I thought would make both of us very rich forever. It is so sad because it took me six years to gather the money that Felix stole from me in just one week. To make it very clear, Felix is no where to be found, and none of his neighbours seems to know his whereabouts. His phone number is also out of use, and even his colleagues don’t know anything about his whereabouts.
The only proof I have now is his name that appears on my bank statement since he personally cashed the cheque that has his name written on it.
What did I do in life to deserve such a harsh treatment? Did I do it out of love or was I just plain stupid.God I truly need you.
