Angel Safety

  • Angel Safety
    January 10, 2011

    Every day, I am humbled by the community the Angels are building. Right off the bat, we left the "just a fan club" notion behind and have really worked to become a close knit group of women that work every day to support each other and our communities. 
    A natural part of a caring community is taking care of those that are in need, and meeting others face to face. As I see more and more posts wanting to do one or the other, I thought it would be a good time to remind us of some safety basics. 
    Do not engage in financial transactions with other Angels
    As close as we're all becoming, we still have to keep in mind that we don't really KNOW know each other. 
    I dissuade Angels against sending money to other Angels to purchase merchandise for each other, for traveling together or collecting money for a group effort. Money = including, but not limited to, cash, checks, credit card transactions or PayPal.
    Use precaution when meeting other Angels
    • Before you agree to meet up, make sure you've at least had several interactions with the person(s). 
    • Do not go to an initial meeting alone. 
    • Schedule your initial meeting for a well trafficked public place. 
    A fan club is suppose to be a fun way to support a mutually shared artist(s). What we're doing is going above and beyond the traditional "call of duty" but I want to make sure that everybody is safe.
    So please... use good judgment when making decisions involving other Angels. 
    Thanks,

i have a question, im seeing people speak of buying tickets in Pairs with another angel. I have yet to buid a personal close trustworthy relation with other angels yet so does that mean if i want vip i have to split the cost with another angel?? Does buying in pairs mean i need a partner to Get a Vip ticket .I am confused im over hearing alot of stuff and if this is the case this is really SAD for those whod rather purchase their tic alone!!!!

This is a great topic that you have posted on...I want to personally say beware of who you trust...everything isnt what it seems and I would hate for any one of my fellow angels to be taken advantage of...Thanks Angel sisters! Job well done!!

Definitely some sound advice. Luckily I've been blessed to meet some really great Angels, but you can never be too careful!!

so true our love for the same cause makes us trusting but as you said we don't KNOW eachother please pay close attention angels :)

And that's a good reminder from @sweetangel_ttu. If you have questions about the validity of something, Trey's Angels can be a resource. But for the most part, you'll know if something is officially sanctioned because we'd probably be promoting the heck out of it. :)

Great topic! And as far as trusting others with ur money if u are going to plan trips with other angels, or anyone, pay ur half as u go. For instance, if ur gonna put in on gas or hotel fees wait until that time comes and pay ur part. If u are unsure about an official angel, contact "Treys Angels" at teamtreysangels@gmail.com & I'm sure they will be happy to help. :-) And remember let's spread love & not hate!

I think that most of the Angels are definitely being responsible and making wise decisions. Its always nice to be reminded of precautions regarding safety when meeting new people. I remember it was a time when "trust" was the least of our worries. Now days that isn't the case. So always remember to follow your "gut" because I can tell you mine has never steered me wrong. If you doubt a situation DO NOT PROCEED and don't be afraid to say NO. If someone tries to talk you into a situation more than likely that person doesn't have your best interest in heart.

Love the Love all the Angels share w/ one another.

Thanks
