  • There are scam busting sites with online lists of the names scammers use, their email addresses, stock copy/paste emails, paid-for-in-cash cell phone numbers, stolen pictures and fake websites they use. You could start your search at one of those sites.

    If you have responded to a scammer, you are on his 'potential sucker' list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of great jobs, lottery winnings, millions in the bank and desperate, lonely, sexy singles. He will sell your email address to all his scamming buddies who will also send you dozens of fake emails all with the exact same goal, you sending them your cash via Western Union or moneygram.

    Do you know how to check the header of a received email? If not, you could google for information. Being able to read the header to determine the geographic location an email originated from will help you weed out the most obvious scams and scammers. Then delete and block that scammer. Don't bother to tell him that you know he is a scammer, it isn't worth your effort. He has one job in life, convincing victims to send him their hard-earned cash.

    Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even partial sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer.

  • There are sites out there that are like 2hands.org, but they are scam sites. 2hands.org is NOT a scam site, as they put you in touch with the people who are actually looking for help. How do I know this? I'm one of the people who screen, but help people every year. I help the families who really need it, and that's what I mean by screening. The only scam that comes into play, are the people who say they need help but don't need it. These people are greedy and often times will turn around and sell the gifts you give to the family. I never give phones, gaming consoles or gear, tv's, and so on. I give the children a couple toys, but give them things like clothes, shoes, I've paid for eye glasses and things of that nature. Just be careful when helping anyone from these sites!! And remember, it's for the children and so many of them really do need the important things along with a doll or a couple hot wheels cars that will put a smile on their face. I've had parents request very expensive things and even set up a parent who tried returning a gift for cash, this is how I know it happens. Ask what the kids need, how old they are, get a list from the parents. If it's in my general area, I'll often pick up the list in person so I can meet the parent(s) and maybe even see that they actually have children. It's a big help and I know the gifts are going to the child. Just don't judge!! There are so many moms who are working and doing everything they can for their children and sometimes it's just not quite enough. I tend to lean towards helping single parents more than couples. There are 2 other sites I go to but don't have the address' on hand. I will try to edit at another time and post the sites if anyone is interested.

  • For the past 3 or 4 years I have used 2hands to help out a family or two at Christmas in my local area. Unlike sites like Craigslist, when you see a post you wish to help there is a posting number identifying the post and which you send to the 2hands administrator(s). They then email you back with the person(s) contact info: usually and email address and sometimes a phone number also. Some people give more info than others to 2hands to release to those helping. Once you make contact with the person who posted, like any online exchange, you need to be cautious. I always exchange a few emails first before giving out a phone number in return. You also have the right to ask for some proof (ie that they actually have kid(s) if asking for birthday or Christmas gifts) before you hand anything over. You can usually get a feel for whether someone is trying to scam you or not after a few emails and asking the right questions. So far the only scam I have run into was someone asking for help on the local Craigslist. Anyone I have helped on 2hands was legitimate. I would suggest, however, sticking to helping someone in need in your general area (the postings for help are done by state and/or regions of a state). That way you have a little more control over the situation and what seems right or doesn't seem right to you. So if you are someone looking to help a family or individual in need, 2hands.org is a reliable place to go.

  • Yes. The consonants and vowels are in the right places, but the ones that were "educated" during the Reagan and Bush Sr. times need demagogues like Rush Lumpaugh, Glenn Bunk, and Calamity Hannity, to tell them what to think. The Repugnicons are on the run... that's why they can only react to Obama's policies. They don't have any ideas of their own, they can only try to tear down Obama's ideas, and, failing that, slander Obama as a person. The Republican "leadership" have been acting like a bunch of whiny children since the election. They were big contributors to the present mess, and they need to adult up and work to solve the problems, not sit in the middle of the floor and hold their breath until their faces turn blue. They're having a temper tantrum, and it's getting ugly. The "birthers," who are even more stupid than PETA, don't seem to realize that they are hurting their cause. The GOP, who were the ones that started the dumba** rumour, are now trying to distance themselves from the silliness. To answer your question - NO. They don't hear much of anything, other than the first phrase or two of a sentence, then they go off to the garage to start making signs and plan some half a**ed protest they call "tea parties." They're egged on by morons like Glenn Bunk, and that Hannity clown. That's all they hear, and unfortunately, that's all they'll learn. Generally, listening and learning mean change; by definition, conservatives don't want change, so they only pretend to listen. Republicans, and the people who claim they are, have tried to raise a culture of fear in recent years; it is not in their best interests if they were to say everything is going to be OK. So it may be that it's not because they don't hear, they can afford hearing aids, they just don't give a s*** what you think. They have their agenda, and it's not necessarily in your best interests. Money's the game here.

  • 4 years ago I asked for help on 2Hands and found not one, but 2 families who changed my life. This Christmas, 2013, I was in the position to help someone and actually found 2 families I was able to provide Christmas for. I know for a fact that 2Hands is nothing but valid and an amazing website that changed my life both as someone asking for help and someone who was finally in a position to help another. So yes, I have heard of 2Hands.org and am now a yearly devoted fan and user.

  • I was very skeptical when I first heard of this site. I didn't think it was a scam, just thought it was unlikely to work. I posted for the first time this year and was lucky enough to receive some help. I also provided what little help I could to four others hoping and praying for things I had and wasn't using. I believe this site is what it appears to be. A place for people in need to reach out to the world for help.

    I do agree with Anthony though, pretty sure the greatest chance of scammers on this site is someone lying about being in need trying to cash in on assistance that others are genuinely and desperately hoping for. I guess there's a chance of Creepers just like on any site, but it's not like Craigslist. Guys hopefully aren't going to be askin' some impoverished single mom for sex in exchange for assistance. But still, if you need help and an "Angel" wants to meet you, you might suggest a public place. I also provided my work address for my wonderful Angel to send assistance too instead of my home address. You can never be to careful, especially if you have children in the home.

  • I am on 2hands right now looking for help for my children and I'm getting nothing but meaness and rudeness from these so called angel I was told if I want my kids to have a good Christmas then I should have a job or plan ahead I been on the site two weeks in a chat RM where there are women who have been helped 4 and 5 years in a row .I feel ashened if even goin there for help

    It is funny I hear like wise spin put on what Bush said by liberals. Both sides spin but since I rarely listen to the nastiest one on the conservative side I never heard what you said the talk radio host said. I do agree both sides are now trying to buy votes with new entitlements. I'm still looking for a President that can articulate a vision on creating wealth in the world & is at least as conservative as JFK & Martin Luther King. Too bad for the U.S. both parties today are more liberal than the 2 individuals I just sighted. Also most of our so called leaders lack the intellect to create wealth or fight their way out of a paper bag.

  • In 2012 I posted asking for help and surprisingly received Christmas presents for my children. The couple who bought for my children were from around my area. Sometimes if people do not know about the site but are local and helping other families makes it difficult. Try to post at least once every 48 hours, check your email and phone. I will forever be greatful to the family who helped our children. Allot of people do not send money but instead buy the presents themselves or pay a person's bills or rent instead. 2Hands.org is the real deal but as it says, help is not guaranteed but do not discourage, keep trying, that is all you can do.

  • I applied a couple years ago and heard zilch. Now, trying again, there is no way for me to post! The button isn't showing up! If it's not cell phone compatible, then I guess I'll manage Christmas on my won for my son. I don't own a computer.
