Yes, it is a scam. And if it’s “Laura2” she’s already been deleted

I got a notification through my email that I had a message from her but it was already deleted by the time I checked my LumberJocks inbox.

As above, there is a family of them all very rich $$ and wanting to give it all away.

Unfortunately for me I am too old for any perceived erotic physical whatever, and dont need the money or a heart attack!... although it might be a good way to go out!!

Still a nice looking trike!

I got one too but at my age I just like to set and fantasize. At least my wife got a good laugh.
