Topic tags/keywords: tip

I just received an email from a new member starting with “Dear Love” asking me to reply to their personal email – jenniferzinger@ymail.com – member -jenniferzinger.

A quick Google search shows it to be a major scam.

That was my first clue it was a scam. Nobody that looks like that contacts me. :-)

Yep me too they try this stuff every now and then. I think it would be cool to e mail back and say you require $200 to be friends :))

It has a curious buddy icon, only showing the head from just below the eyes down. Maybe it needs help to get a decent photo taken. Never going catch a lot of fish with a net with a hole in it . . .

For 3 months or so I was getting this email from a female named Malissa saying: “I think you are cute” and then invite me to call and chat.she wouldn’t even know what I look like or she could have been blind!
I never replied and it finally stopped,I now get “Married woman looking for sex” .

I don’t know how they choose who to try to scam, but sometimes they can reel in a some intelligent fish. A physics professor from UNC thought a famous bikini model he met online wanted to start a relationship with him. Hard to believe a guy that understands particle accelerators could be so gullible. -Jack

Sorry Monte, you can have it, she, he whatever. My old XO fell for this and sent $300 and never saw it again… (Laughing) Having met and married a Ukrainian woman I can attest that not all are scams, but nobody sends you an email out of the blue claiming to be in love and is a real. You want a Russian/ Ukrainian wife you have to go to the source and find one.
