Thanks for the feedback. Actually, I must say that the "nice guy" strategy sucks. In my example, I was aggressive, taunting, even challenging the other party to put up or shut up and stop wasting my time. That strategy will weed out the fakes and save a lot of time. I would use a lot of strong language. Let's face it, everyone wants to be a *nice guy*. Save that for your public life. You can be much more bold in your private life(just don't get arrested). Besides, the nice guys *do* finish last. I never had any success in addition to the encounter described above. I stopped doing this because it was just too much effort for too little reward. It's really much easier to just spend money in return for service. In my case, it's the same old "Time vs. Money" debate.
