My friend I work with thinks she is dating Dustin Lynch. She has been talking to someone one the phone and through text messages, she is 109 % convinced it is him. She has been talking to him for several months and apparently sending him money. All of her friends wonder why she hasn’t met him yet, now that she has a fulltime and a part time job and her car was impounded for lack of payment. She said he is in Florida visiting his grandparents right now, is this true or a scam? She is a genuine good hearted person and I don’t wanna see her hurt.
This is the exact same thing happening to my friend at work right now!! Makes me wonder if we’re talking about the same person hmmm.
I have had this very same thing happen to me… I was contacted by someone saying that he was Craig Morgan… He said that he and his wife were separated and getting a divorce. Over the nect 6 months he had me convinced that me that he loved me and wanted to be with me. But all his money was tied up by her, and he needed enough money to pay his attorneys to get his bank account back….As it ended up, I sent him some where around $45,000…Needless
to say…he broke me…but I still love Craig Morgan…!!! I have found out that his real name is Robert…I hope he gets caught and punished. I am 73, and when I’m gone…I will haunt him…As for the real Craig Morgan… He’s awesome!
I have someone saying their Dustin Lynch on my snapchat and they have asked me to buy a Fan VIP Card in order to come meet him at his home. Is this a scam
