Topic tags/keywords: question tip

Just wanted to find out if any of you have experienced any contact from anyone who is clearly not interested in our craft but obviously has some other nefarious purpose behind their contact. Today, someone named “Vivian” posted the below to my profile. Clearly I have no intention of contacting “her” but was wondering if anyone else has had this happen to them.

Hell Dear
I am Vivian dabah, 22yrs old girl from Sudan . I read your profile, and find it truly interesting. That is why I am contacting you so that we can get to know each other better for personal relationship, beside I have a special issue to discuss with you on a very serious note. I can be reached through this Email: ( Hope to hear from you soon. I will send my pictures to you and also tell you more about my self when you reply me. All I need is your understanding and interest for more information about me..
Take care as I wait for your response through my private email address

Yours Vivian

I looked at my profile, and I must admit, I clearly have revealed too much info. LOL And when did LJs become a dating site. Just be careful about answering any of these “characters”.

Now Ray, we all want a 22 y/o, but like the dog who chases the car, we would know what to do with it once we catch it. LOL

Reminds me of when my wife turned 40. I said I was going to trade her in for two twenty year olds. She said I wasn’t wired for 220!
