Was Cantor getting in Tony Forsythe's car a TSTL moment?

absolutely. but he was desperate for a sponsor and the guy appeared respectable

Very naïve of him.

I don't think it was a TSTL moment because he had no reason to suspect anyone would harm him. Once he became suspicious it was too late.

I agree with >4 Olivermagnus:. You could tell that he was nervous by the reference that he breathed a sign of relief when the car turned onto the street where his car was parked...after all he didn't know the man...but he had no reason at that time to think anyone was interested in him. He left with the only person at his seminar that was interested in what he had to say.

I must be too paranoid, :) , no way would I get in a car with a stranger.

>6 Sergeirocks: I must be just as paranoid, I wouldn't have got in the car! This man was already quite mysterious, just got up and left midway through. I do think he should have been more careful with his actions...look at the outcome!

I knew as soon as he got in the car it was a TSTL moment.
