On Friday last week, while i was in my room, in the company, watching movie ( since out of work already and that was relaxing time). On of my friend on yahoo chat list buzzed me. Yeah, i had a chat without any doubt about him.
Things went a litte bit then he suddenly asked me: “Can you help me buy 10 vinagame cards for his little brother, just came from country side to HCM for fun? 60.000vnd/each”. Sure i said: “Yes”. I told him i would call him when i got back to my home, we live quite closely. I would called him afterward. However, he said that, his phone was out of battery and proposed me a solution: Got out of the company and bought the cards, went in the internet shop and sent the code via chat. Ok, we agreed on that.
Popped in an internet shop, asked for 10 cards, not paid yet. I went online and confirmed him again about type of card, since i did not know about them. Buzzed 1, 2, 3 times, no reply. Picked up my phone and tried to catch him. Oh No, the phone was ringing. The real person was talking with me. What i got was: he did not ask for any cards and he was drinking with his friends. Shit! i shouted out. Someone hacked his account and cheated me.
As a basic of thinking, i recalled about that friend, about his type of chat with me. Totally strange! However i did not realize. My friend got confirmed and changed the password.
I got a useful lession: DO NOT TRUST ONLINE, YOU SHOULD DO SOME BASIC CONFIRMATION BEFORE ACCEPTING, BELIEVING SOMETHING!
