Something Didn’t Seem Quite Right

It all began with a routine transaction, a seemingly innocuous visit from a woman in her 70s. But to Marian Karbowski, something didn’t quite add up. She knew God was telling her this woman would be in trouble if she didn't step in. As the woman nervously explained her intention to sell her home and cancel her insurance, Mariana’s gut told her there was more to the story other than the response she received of "needing to help her son."

With gentle persistence, Mariana probed deeper, unraveling the woman’s true dilemma: she believed she needed to sell her home to free her online boyfriend from an overseas prison. But Mariana, no stranger to the devastating consequences of scams, refused to turn a blind eye to the woman’s plight.

With empathy and determination, Mariana guided the woman through the truth, uncovering the web of deceit spun by heartless scammers. God put Mariana in the right place at the right time.

Mariana Saved Her From the Bank Scam

Mariana's own father had been scammed out of millions. Because of her first-hand experience, Mariana was able to help this poor woman. Marina prodded and asked about this boyfriend, who seemed to be in prison. With a few keystrokes, she did a reverse search on him to reveal the internet boyfriend was not real. He had sent her images of other men and was a scammer.

"We cried together, and I walked her to the police station to report it," Mariana said, "We care, and when we see those red flags, we act."

Together, they walked to the police station, where the woman bravely reported the fraud. Mariana’s swift action saved the woman from financial ruin and provided a beacon of hope in the fight against online fraud. Her vigilance and compassion embody the spirit of true heroism, reminding us that even in the mundane routines of everyday life, extraordinary acts of kindness can shine brightly.

In a world where trust is often exploited for nefarious gain, Mariana Karbowski’s story is a powerful testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the unwavering power of compassion.

Mariana displayed extraordinary courage and empathy in her ordinary role as a bank teller. Her actions remind us of the miraculous impact that kindness and vigilance can have in our world. We thank God for sending everyday heroes like her to illuminate our paths and inspire us to do good.
