family scams family

Postby chi chi » Mon May 06, 2013 10:15 pm

Some people fall really low.
On a regular basis I see at the news reports about people that scam their own family.

I just saw on the news that 2 children of an old lady have drugged her and robbed her money.

U.S.A. is worst people kill and torture their parents and siblings for money.

Wouldn't say that's typically to Peru. As I can see, regretfully it seems to happen everywhere in the world.

Exactly, i dont even think chi chi said it was a news story from Peru, it seems a few people have just taken the Troll bait. Chi Chi knows what he is doing with his provocative posts, sadly some people just dont get it.

Actually it is a very common type of crime in Peru like this one

Translation Daughter killed her mother, Reason: the mother did not like the current boyfriend of the daughter.

It is not provocative if it happens very often in Peru.

It's no provocative. We are in Peru and on this forum we discuss things what we see, do and hear about in Peru.
For sure some Eskimos, Hutsis and Aboriginals commit those crimes too but it's difficult to talk about as we aren't in Canada, Burundi or Australia.

Unfortunately, there are always trolls like dh2012 that want to cause a stir and set up people against each other and want to disrupt a topic that interests many people.

Nothing wrong with trolling for information.

The point is that the rest of the world is pretty open about. But when you ask some Peruvians
they say, those things do not happen here like they were living in Sweden or New Zealand.
