Never send money to anyone
Posted February 20th, 2013 - 1:41 am by from Montpellier, France (Permalink)
I would point out that I got $ 300 stolen by a girl who was listed on couch surfing and lived in Copacabana
her name PATRICIA ADAMSON with which I sympathize, we communicated for few weeks to know us better. As she was welcoming me home to Rio.
she has kindly offered to attend a private party organized in the carnival by his Samba teacher with a visit of Rio in hélicopter...it was looked really nice.
I had to send the money to book my place and unfortunately I sent $ 300 to a western union to
GERDSAN SAMPAIO FABELICIO, the so-called GREAT professor
of samba.
When I arrived in Rio
Im not only have not been welcomed by Patricia suddenly, as it was the weekend, there was no room in cheap hotel and I had to pay a more expensive hotel at the last minute and well sure I have not received any news of Patricia or my money,
then I advise you to be careful and never send money to either on cs.
Today I knew by another member of cs that Patricia had stolen other people, I do not know if it is the same person, that is why I decided to post this message.

By this testimony I wish to warn you that this incident does not happen to other people.
As travelers we must remain attached to each other and when we can and avoid this kind of situation.
thank you for reading this and thanks to the team at cs.

I had a problem with a guy that wanted to rent my studio, he came through couchsurfing too. His name ( for sure a fake me) Dan Mattingley.
on't trust him! He deleted his profile.
