I feel a little silly for sharing this. It was probably just a scam. But I’ve had trouble sleeping ever since this happened and I need to know if it’s true. If you have heard about this group, let me know.
I was going to get some components for a project the other day, when I was approached by a young woman outside the store. She started talking fast, asking if I could help her.
She said her mother was a big executive at a local manufacturing company. She said her mom was an evil witch and was trying to take her boyfriend away and they needed to escape. Could I help? I didn’t know what to say.
She stopped, took a few deep breaths and started again, more slowly making sure she had my attention.
“My mom is the head of a big company. She is very powerful. She is part of a group called the Praying Mantis Society.
“Mom’s group is really really scary. They seduce men, kill them and then eat them. My mom says it has something to do with overthrowing patriarchy. I don’t really get it.
“All I know is, I turned eighteen this month and my mom wants me to join her. She found out about my boyfriend, and… I love him. I don’t want to hurt him. Can you help us?”
I ended up giving her twenty bucks and mumbled “good luck”.
She took off, probably to get drugs. I never got her name.
The whole thing was weird. She probably had mental health issues, but I still find it hard to sleep. Was I scammed or does this group really exist?
