    Latest example. Young, under-educated woman meets charming Tunisian love rat on the internet. She flies over to meet him and, right after touchdown, they're engaged. His family loves her. He loves her. Oh and get a move on with that visa application please. What could go wrong?

    I don't know how you patient veterans deal with these stories day after day. I think I would go mad.

    Everybody has her/his own way how to deal with the rat problem. I prefer humour and letting of steam (once in a while) helga.gif
    When I read GoFundMe, I´m sometimes very astonished, which projects people deem worth a donation

    Are you talking about that lady with the gofundme on the 90 Day Facebook page? Yeah it broke my heart to see that... But at the same time, a gofundme, really??

    I know, gofundme for everything nowadays. On a positive note, maybe she will come here and check out the stories.

    I couldn't imagine asking anyone to fund my relationship, or be with a man who would encourage such a thing. But the real shame here is that this girl is going to be hurt, and I hope maybe she comes here too or sees the light before it's too late.

    Sadly I think 9 times out of 10 it doesn't seem to :(
    But I also think that 9 times out of 10 it plants seeds and gives knowledge and the victim comes to the realisation a lot sooner than they otherwise would have

    I had no idea about Tunisian bezness until I watched Season 2, 90 Day Fiancé. I couldn't figure out what the hell was going on but then I found this site and everything made sense. These guys really do have a playbook, don't they?

    The thing is that the woman do not have to be under-educated at all. Most women who comes on this site are smart and inteligent women. The problem is that they do not know the couture, religion and lifestyle in Tunisia. Most go into a relation with the western way of thinking And have no idea about bezness and how these Rats work. And most of all , they do not know the tradision when it comes to relations between man/woman, marriage and how a genuine Tunisian man will treat a woman he want to marriage.
    And why do I spend so much time make some women understand the "Tunisian way" and what the difference are between genuine people and rats and rats family? I do not want anybody to go into a rat relationship b/c I would not wish such a fate even for my worst enemy. As I've said before, it is the woman who will decide whether she will continue a relationship with a rat after learning the truth and seen the red flags. I show what is culture ,religion and tradition and what are the red flags. And if she chooses to ignore the advice she gets, I want her at least to go into the relationship with open eyes and with the knowledge I can impart. I will spread my knowledge about bezness and combat this phenomenon as long as I live. Spreading information is the key to stopping these pests that creep around the internet and believe that Western women should feed them .

    Tiger, you are one of the women I really admire in here. You always give excellent advice, never patronizing, always clear.

    I can see it all clearly. Arrives Monday, preaches on street corner Tuesday, arrested Tuesday afternoon, taken to psychiatric hospital Wednesday, deported Friday.

    Ah if only that were possible..... @MH007 you will have to do what we all do.... stay awake half the night reading and surviving on 3 hours sleep. But a great way to get some extra publicity though!
