      Hello everyone,

      I wanted to share an experience I had recently, which serves as a reminder to be cautious, even when our intentions are to help. It all started when I encountered someone who I believed to be one of our local drivers in distress.

      This individual approached me with a story that immediately tugged at my heartstrings. He claimed that his wife and kids were stranded and desperately needed help. Moved by his story, I thought I was doing the right thing by offering assistance. However, as the situation unfolded, I realized that things were not as they seemed.

      The person I was helping was not who I thought he was. This realization struck me late, and it made me reflect on the importance of verifying someone’s identity before offering help, especially in situations that seem urgent or desperate. In hindsight, there were signs that should have prompted me to question the authenticity of his story.

      I’m sharing this to remind everyone that while it’s important to be compassionate and helpful, we also need to be mindful of our own safety. Scammers often exploit our willingness to help, creating elaborate stories to gain our trust and assistance.

      Please, if you find yourself in a similar situation, take a moment to assess and verify the authenticity of the request for help. It’s always better to err on the side of caution.
