Don't let know one try to tell you, or get you to believe that it is..When really it never was and/or can never be.

Someone coming to you saying, I know where you can get this or that for a little of nothing..Just give me your name,address,money etc. And I'll see that you get it..When all alone they where just playing you..They knew that it wasn't or could never be. But you gave it to them trusting them. And you end up with nothing..

Be careful don't take no wooden nickels. Old saying originating from DETROIT.
