7 Sins- control or be manipulated

Sometimes I told myself, is the moment I waiting for or it was just too good to be true. Last week, got two person who added me in WLM (Windows live messenger) to talk on buying my virtual items in one of the popular game.

They offer for USD1000, well that’s mean a lot for me. Then I counter offer USD1200 and they accept my offer. Ok, that’s the deal but when comes to give and take. The anonymous guy tries to convince, all effort to persuade to do give first. Well when it comes to money, I know by nature greed will lead the way. Anyway this is mental situation, if you are weak and let it absorb what the anonymous try to tell you to do.. it is as you are completely blackout/manipulated. I know my business principle, money clear first then only proceed. If no money.. that’s the end of our conversation.. all talks are just a words that full of lies. If you are serious buyer, you should take the risk and respect my principle or leave it. I don’t think anything personal.. if the person try to say his personal experience or anything that unrelated rather than just shut up and start paying.. he just wasting his and my time. Therefore, there’s no reason for me to proceed to trade with such person. I don’t care if he giving his handphone no, home address or what so ever, because this is old trick to gain fake trust.

He can be a smart scammer but he forgets one thing about me, I’m once a scammer and that won’t make me fall into my own old trap. Too bad for him, he wasting his time to think of something new to lure me to give up my possession to him while he forget who am I. So I just wanna share this to all of you that never ever let greed control over you.. because it will blind you.

I remember that people like to use 7 sins to control us. It is also a weak point of human being. But if you notice it early, you will be a stronger person in term of mental and physical.

1. Pride
2. Envy
3. Gluttony
4. Lust
5. Anger
6. Greed
7. Sloth

These 7 sins are very important as people tend to take advantage on us based on that.
