What information does a credit card give about you?

Depends on the kind of info services they subscribe to. I'd bet they use enhanced systems and have a lot of specific info on you and your history as well as basic demographics. They can afford to subscribe to fancy stuff if they're charging $250/hour.

Maybe it's because you are quick to accuse and slow to reason. I'm not a Christian, but I know that they are always accused of being judgmental. Well now I'm beginning to see that some atheists are very judgmental as well.

A typical internet troll never admits to being one. They have a tendency to ask disingenuous questions when it suits while leaping to erroneous conclusions from a comment rather than asking for clarification at other times. They also tend to become petulant when any logical flaws in their arguments are pointed out.

In this case I noted that your comment was indistinguishable from one produced by a known troll. It cannot be used to show that you are not a troll, nor does it show that you are. From your posts in this thread I think - but cannot prove - that you are either a troll or a Poe.

I have teas from India, China, Japan, and Sri Lanka. After several posts mentioning the drink made me thirsty, I brewed a pot of Orange Pekoe (from Sri Lanka). Delicious! Now on the second cup.

I'm enjoying a mug of Lapsang Souchong Assam mix.
Its possible her mental health issues could be causing her to appear like a troll when she isn't I'm going to give the benefit of the doubt, even if she is one which I doubt tbh, she's pretty benign and pleasant enough to talk to just rather frustrating at times.
I think she might be a bit socially isolated and lonely at the moment something I can identify with. Sad

Much depends on the earnestness of both conversants. One reason why you're getting rough handling in this thread is because you utterly refuse to digest the points being put to you, and instead simply cling to this "well, you tell me about my grandmother" snark.

Look, no one likes being taken in for $250. But when others are trying to help you see how you got bamboozled, and you brush everything they say away with obstreperous snark, baseless claims, and what appears to be deliberate incomprehension, you are not going to make very many friends.

You should probably think more about the points that have been put to you ... or go work some overtime, because you'll apparently be needing quite a bit of money in the future. I'm no psychic, but even I can see that necessity.

Lapsabg Souchong is one tea that I genuinely dislike. I enjoy Assam, most brands of English Breakfast, Earl Grey, and Gunpowder; I found Darjeeling to be overrated.

Darjeeling is definitely overrated although better than no tea at all, I get quite panicky if I have less than a hundred teabags and half a pound of loose tea in the house. Big Grin

It's also worth mentioning that with basic information, such as your age, they can hazard a guess and "generic" things, such as how many members of your family are alive, and dependent on your area of the US, they would most likely be able to hazard a guess at not only if they have died but what of, using common trending data from the area.

For example: if you are my age, so 28/29, I would say it's highly likely that you may have lost a grand parent by now. Everybody has at least 4 grand parents (if you're spread out like my family through divorce and re-marriage, you have many lol. I have/had 6 for example, plus my great grand parents were alive when I was a youngster and THEY divorced and remarried lol.) and unless they had your parents very young, and in turn they have you very young, they are probably in the realm of 70-90, and therefore at least one of them may have most likely passed on.

Then the stinger would be they say "I see a women", which makes you instantly think of your two grandma's. Followed up with "she want's you to know she's well, and hasn't seen you in a very long time", which is super ambiguous; Are they alive and miss you in feeling? Have they died and it's been a while? etc.

Many have already said it, but consider...just for a split second...that it IS all total bollocks and you've been conned out of $250? Unfortunately, this IS the truth of the world; there is no god....there are no "spirits"...people don't have powers...you've been totally conned mate.

It's funny how everyone is calling me a troll and yet no one is telling me what it means. I guess free speech is not respected here.

And apparently you don't know what "free speech" is either.

In a religious mindset it often seems to mean that they can make any claim they want without being challenged or contradicted
