Scammers gonna scam

Today, I found out that the $100,000 scholarship I "won" was a scam. I found it on a website. When I won, they asked for a "processing fee" that I begged my brother to let me borrow. The website has vanished into internet wasteland and I have no way of paying back the money. FML

Obvious scam, I feel sorry that you were so naive. But sometimes the most desperate people are the easiest scam victims. Always think - If it seems too good to be true, then it’s a scam. And if someone is giving you money or a scholarship they won’t ask for money or your bank or credit card info first. And finally, nobody gives out scholarships that you didn’t previously apply for.

How did you win something you never signed up for...?

Well…unless it’s the MacArthur Fellowship, then yeah. Most of the time you would have had to apply before receiving a scholarship or grant.

Live and learn my friend. The real story is you pursuing furthering your education. Ponder/think,/meditate/pray about it
