With that in mind, I've noticed some of these friends will start a chat with me for several reasons. Whatever the reason, if it involves money or becoming more than friends, I've now decided to turn the tables on them.
The latest was a nice looking female who claimed to be a pastor in Pakistan who is from NY working a special church and asking for prayers. (By tomorrow it will be money I'm sure)
What I'm doing is giving them a link while chatting with them which is supposed to give them more information on my company and possible how I could help them.
When they go there, it captures their IP address, where they are located and other cool information on them. It also lets them now they have just been tacked and if they think I'm BS'ing them, they can ask me for the info I have on them.
If you are interested, just go to Venture Capital and Angel Investors
