I’ve had similar ones a couple of times in the past. I don’t really know exactly what the scam is, but I’ve just ignored them and never heard any more.

Funny coincidence…. I guess. No sooner had I posted my response to you than I was added to the buddy list of lauralove88, who just created a profile 25 minutes ago. :-)

I just received a similar response on a YouTube video I posted. It’s just another phishing scheme by some unscrupulous foreigner with bad English skills. My writer wanted to be “pen pals.”

I simply blocked the idiot, and deleted it as everyone should.

Yes I did receive the same mail from the same sender and most probably about the same time you received it.
Deleted the mail.

You don’t have to do anything; Ms Debbie deletes these spammers. I saw her ‘kiss’ note in my notifications email, Ms Debbie made her disappear before I could see the comment on my LJ homepage. We’re lucky, the “Garden Tenders” sister site gets bombarded daily with new skin concoctions, weight loss schemes, and colon-cleansing ads touted by members who just joined and have but one post to their credit… then, poof they’re gone! Though, posting on your LJ homepage is a new one on me.

I got it this AM too. Although I was tempted, I resisted and did not answer her ;-)) Delete and forget it. The SPAM Patrol will kill it.

If these weren’t so annoying with the bad English and the rude invasion of privacy, they’d be commical! Maybe the cold weather is making them stay indoors more and they’re bored.

I’d rather be in my basement workshop with a board or two being unbored, boring boards.

I got one from a page started by “OLLIE” which has since been taken off. I mentioned this on the forum I started. It is a scam where they want your bank account information so you can bank their millions of dollars, in othewr word clear out your bank account.
