Am I being too suspicious? (Yes, clickbait)

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Am I being too suspicious? (Yes, clickbait)

I'm not sure if I'm being unnecessarily suspicious, but I'm starting to think this kid's not actually a monkling.

And not actually Cambodian, and not actually in Thailand.

Sadly, he's not been back since my 75/25 question. I also like playing with the scammers that offer exotic parrots to free homes - I got one of these on the hook when still in Australia and got the Feds in on the game. They too asked me to stretch it for as long as possible so I was a little more subtle. Mrs Stroppy tells me that someone's offering a pair of Capuchin monkeys for free around town at the moment.

if he was up front that he was a Nigerian scammer, id of followed up with his offer and taken the money and split, but the fact that he lied at the start means our trust is broken

Yeah, it's so hard to build trust when they won't be honest about the small things. My friend Prince Maffasa on the other hand...

Edit: I'm sending him the money so he, Mrs Stroppy and I can get married in a couple of months.

I once strung one of these scams on for weeks, eventually talked him into giving me his phone number. I called him at 3 in the morning his time and blasted him with an airhorn. It was worth the £1.68 phone call to hear his sleepy voice try and carry on the scam. Toot toot!

Now THAT would be satisfying!
