Scammer? Scammer!

There is something I feel I need to let you know about, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

It may be something that has happened to you.  But, it may not have happened to you.

What happened?

In the past, I've received calls from scammers. 

Scammers who have called me, claiming to be from the police, or from our Canadian government.  And, I have even received scams by fax.

But this last call seemed very different.

The person calling asked to speak with me.  I asked who it was.  The man gave me a name that I couldn't understand. 

I asked again what his name was.  He sounded like he was from a very foreign country, and I truly didn't hear his name.

Not just because of the way he spoke.  But, also due to the noise in the background.

So, I asked him what that noise was. 

Did he respond?  No.

He hung up.  For this, I am truly thankful.

However, please know that before he hung up, he had asked me about my credit card.  Just so you know, I didn't respond regarding that.  It was then that I asked him about the noise.

Sigh...

Afterwards, I went online to check my bank information.  I found out everything seemed to be okay.

For this, I'm thankful.

But, I have to admit that I think it is so awful that people sin.  Especially, when they want to hurt others.

This type of scamming is truthfully sinful.  For whoever is doing things like this aren't supporting God.  They are supporting Satan... the devil.

Is this good?  No.

Just as we read, in Matthew 6:24, "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon."

Amen!  No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

This person who sinfully called me, sounded like he was from India, or somewhere near there.  He may have thought he was supporting his god, or doing things to help himself.  He truly wasn't.  He wasn't supporting God.

He can't serve both God and mammon.  Or, God and Satan.

Nor, can I.  Nor, can you.  Nor, can him.  Nor, can anyone else

If I could have spoken with him much longer, I would have asked him to come to Christ. 

Everyone in this world, needs to trust in/believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.  If you do, you'll gain salvation, everlasting life, and have a blessed relationship with Him, after repenting from sin.

If you do, you will truly be blessed.


Until next time...
