She stated, “However, I was told by a friend (who later became a broker) that he would lend me money during my difficult times and I took it, and then was told that I did not have to pay it back since difficult times. He then told me that someone who really liked and asked to meet him like a blind date, and I accepted it easily. Then, I learned that he had paid the broker to meet me. ”
