I told her that if she sent me 200 L$ first I would send it back plus another 200.

She didn't send me anything so she didn't get anything

Random IMs from folks asking for money for a variety of reasons is quite common, especially in some areas.

I typically just ignore them.  Even when I'm feeling generous, usually don't give to anyone actually asking.

Haven't had this particular one but beggars are common in SL.  I generally just block them and ignore.

As someone that's absolutely given away and/or spent tens of thousands of L$ for other people that needed or wanted things in SL, I've never given to people that have asked.

Make good friends and treat them right and you don't need to ask random strangers.

This is so true.

But as these people are usually true I often tell them to join SLs sex industry.

The ones i've had most often are from people saying they need L$xxx for a skin/shape combo they want to buy and they've already managed to make L$xxx (in the hundreds) in one day in SL
My response is usually something along the lines of "L$xxx already!!!, I want to know how you managed to earn so much so quickly?"

And then ask them for $L since it's so easy for them. Again and again and again until they finally block you.

As a sexual deviant in SL, escorting is a dead subindustry. You can usually find someone just as attractive as a escort that's willing to [LINDEN LAB FRIENDLY-EUPHEMISM FOR SEXUAL INTERCOURSE].

Borrowing is like selling your soul never getting it back trust is broken plain and simple just learn to say no.

 

Nope never fall for it.  I know people stand around asking and spam and beg but it get old they need to face reality. Go get a day job flip some burgers or go host some where we all had to work are way you want something it earned not given. Stranger ask big amounts I block list on entry no question asked.  You have to be careful of  so called friends that just come around for one thing these not real friends if they only asking for linden where to get things get these people out your life find ones that have real conversation want to see you not when they want to see you.   I am fine to guide someone tell them to go collect crystals do a quest go fishing some people do this to make save money some people have jobs in sl or real they save up also.  Not everyone wants to give their hard earned linden to free loaders its like a fake homeless person the street but in real you give them food not money but sl direct them to the freebie places where they get help.

SL is luxury therefore whatever they want to buy/pay for in here is luxury as well...Just the fact they have a roof over their head, a computer, electricity and internet access shows they are better off then the average human  being on this planet ..Asking/begging complete strangers for cash to buy virtual goods screams entitlement and I can`t stand it...

I'd laugh my head off.

Not literally, because I still only have a system avatar.

I usually just block them. Rather it be Kevin/Keith/whoever that guy is from one of the Blueberry groups, or wherever they pop up. Though, sometimes, I respond with "Could get a job, like the rest of us" and then block them.

I have never given $L to anyone who has asked. I generally just don't respond at all or tell 'em to F.O. Some of you guys are much more creative than that and I may have to try your methods, especially if I'm in a mood.

@Matty Luminos ha! That was my first thought too when I read the title of the OP. "Which Linden are we borrowing and why?" Maybe Strawberry, as I just got notification that it is her 1-year anniversary of becoming a Linden.
