Ripped off

Recommended Posts

Guest Singh

I’ve been ripped off by a fellow Punjabi in a business deal.  I know I’m to blame as well as I trusted this person when I shouldn’t have.  I don’t even care about the money even though the damage done is close to 6 figures, but am feeling really bad about how I’ve been treated.  I thought I could trust this person but he just saw me as an easy target and dollar signs.  My family members are telling me to forgive and move on but I’m finding this really hard to do as I think about it all day. Any suggestions on how I can move on?

The best thing would be to start a new buisness, make that guy your motivation that you'd want to reach that lvl again.. Get busy ..

Money pays your bills, puts food on your table and a roof over your head. If you "don’t even care about the money even though the damage done is close to 6 figures" then what the hell are you getting so worked up about ? If your feelings are so easily bruised through issues of mistrust then I would suggest that 'business' is perhaps not the right career for you and you should perhaps look at alternative careers where your delicate sensibilities can be given more protection.

Even if you move on the pain/ thoughts n memories will be there. You could open another Biz I suppose.

Guest Call the cops

1. Report it to the Police and work to recover the money

2. Make it your target to do daswand of an amount greater than you lost

3. Take out a civil suit against the offender

4. Start a new business with the sole target of using 90% profits to help the poor

5. Name and shame the crook so he doesn't do it to someone else

Looks like the money is burnt.Won't come back no matter what.But the pain and feeling of being betrayed is going to follow you forever.It's normal.Everyone who ever got conned feels it.

Either you can let it go and carry on with your life...of if you have more money,you can always hire someone or a group in Punjab to speed up the karmic process for the chap that duped you.

You mentioned 6 figures.May I ask in what currency?

Learn about sociopaths and make sure another one doesn't con you like this. 

I bet you this guy was really charming and gave off an air of integrity and friendship. That's what they are good at. Their abilities enable them to make split second decisions regarding people, who they set up for long cons. 

When you meet people like this it makes you contemplate your own naivety.

    • Is this how we want our bretheren to live ? https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/fruit-pickers-fight-back-at-italian-mafia-slave-farms-pznnhrfzq?fbclid=IwAR2PTrOQhMmEFpwOiWppvZ4hbQkq16zKKr0Gl2k8kJGkbRuMPwOle5y2E38
    • they are the ones who started the little metal kirpan on the kangha , maybe somebody should explain to them you cannot do ifazat of anyone with your kanga...
    • Sat Sri Akaal.  So for late reply.  Yes search up searchgurbani.com. Once there select the 3 line (options) on top right corner of page. Select your Granth (Dasam Granth). Then if u want English / Punjabi index. ALL BAANIAS will appear. Select Att Chandi Charitr.  NOTE: Dasam Granth here is much better than getting an app, especially for translation. 
    • Yeah heard many variations of this sakhi. Do you know what the actual source is? The point I was making is, throughout ithiaas, when Maharaaj seeked to change something, especially as big of a sanskaar as this, things have been clearer. I just find it odd that there isn't any Bani with the Sakhi - and - that a marriage ceremony came up only at the time of Guru Ramdas Ji. Big gap. Something doesn't quite add up. Hmm possibly with regards to the Pandit, although Vedic Saloks whilst walking around a Gutka? Idk about that.   Nobody is fooling themselves. For some reason, and I don't actually know why, you want the fire to be representitive of Agni Devta. A fire can symbolise many things. Meanings and definitions change (as is the case for many things within Sikhi itself); it doesn't necessarily mean it's anthropomorphized or personified in the way you want it to be. This is the same level of reasoning people use to reject the use of jyot (and other practises in common) in Gurdwaras.   I've always said, that if Namdharis were normal Sikhs, they would be one of the most rehitvaan, shardavaan Sampardas we have. Their Maryada is solid and they have many good qualities which they put into practise. Plus their Nitnem is big. I've been to Bhaini Sahib and it's really quite a sight. They have this little building where non-stop Jaap/Simran has been going on since like the 1920s. SGGSJ was prakash in one of the buidings as well; was some kinda of triple Akhand Paath going on. And fyi Ajeet, they do believe in Amrit Sanchar and Panj Kakkar, however they don't wear the Kirpan - they were banned from keeping Shastar during Brit rule and for some unbeknownst reason continued to stay without them. They have kept many Puratan traditions going. It's a shame they've fallen in other areas. And before anyone says it, no I am not promoting Namdharis or letting their manmat views off.
    • If I started this topic why does it bother u ? U probably thought I worship radasoami thete are so many fake babe in sikhi to making up fake storylines and confusing khalsa panth
