I am sorry Itachigirl, but I must agree with everyone on this thread so far.
it is an unfair generalization that all people are bad, where you live and that is a bit of Paranoia.
Look I come from a large city too, Johannesburg is the biggest city is S.A,
and we also have the highest crime rate in the world. But that does not mean that every single person is bad.
and about moving to a small town or village is not the answer either,because there is crime everywhere...

okay, this might have been unclear(my fault, sorry) but i meant more into the business world, even though ive had many 'fwds' who were complete opposite of wht i first thought of thm. also, im not saying tht ALL are bad, only tht many r. ive been taken advantage of too much to fully trust someone out here again at first.
that happens everywhere in all countrys across the planet...
quite frankly, i'm offended, i love and live in LA and i don't appriciate your stereotypes at all.
if you were cheated out of your money, it's your own damn fault. if you know before hand what kind of people you're dealing with, then you have no right whatsoever to blame it on the city you're in. LA is a great place to live, but it's not for tourists or weak minded people. it will chew you up and spit you out, like it obviously did. if you know who to talk to and what kind of people to trust, then you shouldn't have those kind of problems... unless the scam people are really good actors.
sorry that i came on so strongly, but i really love LA and everything in it, and people can down right save your life in this town, but since it's a big city, it depends a lot on who you know and who you talk to. so please, choose your thoughts wisely, and even more important, watch where you say it.
now thats the way to say it Abu Dhabi! true... true... any big city can chew you up good if your not used to it. I too love LA and you really need that littel switch in your head that says, wait a sec, that sounds too good to be true...i havent had any problems with business in my 30 years living in this town of glammor, glitz and concrete...only folks i dont trust are the dealerships...but then again im a mechanic, and wish i could charge those insane prices...but i couldnt do that and sleep at night...
