If you are a service provider and a scammer reaches out to you about coaching or counseling for four women and wants to know what you would charge, be wary. I was contacted nearly two years ago by someone referring to themselves as Steve Kolish; but the new name to be aware of is Rick Keefer using the email address [email protected] instead of one of the "Steve Kolish" iterations.

With that out of the way, here's a takeaway for all helpful people:

It's OK to say, "No." 

It's OK to say to yourself, "This doesn't feel right. I think I'm going to take a step back."

It's OK to think, "I don't think this person is being honest," or "This is too good to be true."

It's OK to be aware that having a bleeding heart might make you a target for manipulation. It's also important to note that you can leave your heart open without bleeding all over the place... More on that in a future post.
