Is He a Cuban Scammer?
I was in Guardalavaca in April when an attractive man walked into the cafe where I was having lunch.
He sat at the table opposite and kept staring at me. He seemed quiet, reserved, dignified.
As he left he looked back at me. When I left the cafe he was standing on the other side of the road telling me be careful of the traffic. He asked if he could accompany me along the beach to my hotel , I said no.
He told me I was beautiful and that he had seen me enter the cafe, he loved the way I dressed, even how I walked, could I meet him later to watch the sunset together. He ran a makeshift shop on the side of the road selling water, juice etc.
We met up later that evening for a drink at a quiet bar, watching the sunset together. We got along, he could speak English but with a strong accent, however I can speak a little Spanish.
He paid for his own drink which made me think he is not using me.
He did not insist on entering my hotel. We met up every evening before I left and got to know each other.
He told me he wanted to keep in touch, he could not use the internet, so I would have to text or call him.
I bought an International calling card, but our communication was a bit garbled, He told me he missed me from the day I left. I could hardly understand what he was saying, not only because of his accent but because he speaks softly. Very frustrating.
I called him last night and again the conversation was less than clear, lot of noise, he works outdoors.
One sentence threw me offguard though. "I'm starving down here" he shouted in an angry way. I did not catch exactly what he said next but it sounded angry.
I yelled back at him that I am not the kind of woman who maintains a man or who would send money if that is what he was implying, that the call was costing me a lot, and immediately cut him off.
I genuinely thought he was for real when we first met. Either he's a great actor or I overreacted last night on the phone.
I would appreciate your views. Would I be wasting my time on this man if I returned to Cuba ?.
