Not everyone using online dating sites is looking for love. As if all that isn’t bad enough, romance scammers are now involving their victims in online bank fraud.
Back in April, Mathew Ingram at Fortune wrote a great overview of the basic strategic rationale behind a Verizon-Yahoo deal.The digital platform space — think of this as any place on the web where people go to get content and, in turn, be served ads — is dominated by Facebook and Google.Well my, my the oldest scam in the book has moved itself to the personals. I recently put my profile up on Yahoo Personals and I had a few people who contacted me.One person sent me his email and I emailed him at [email protected]( if any of you want to send nasty emails to this scammer, feel free.) I was very suspicious when the profile of this so called guy named “Randy Hall” was suddenly removed from Yahoo. I got an email back later that seemed a bit weird, especially when the guy did not talk about anything in his profile and was calling me “dear”.I started laughing when I read it and immediately knew my instincts were correct-SCAMMER! It’s really hard to find a person that is interested in a possible long term relationship and not just a one night stand. My late Mom was from Kansas and My dad was from, West Africa cos he was brought up from Nigeria … my Late mother and father were married for 43 years and I think that is truly wonderful thing and I want to let you Know that i relocate from Elsmore , Kansas to Powell St, San Francisco anytime from now which I let you know that i just got a 1story 10 home yesterday .
- I will post his scam email here so hopefully when other 13 year olds or disgusting old crooks sitting in a room in Nigeria try to pull this crap on another person , they will know they are being set up by one of the oldest scams in the book. they both meet in Rome , ITALY , where i grow up and they instilled many wonderful values in me. I want this also very much..although my life is full of love , there is the most important element of life that is missing from mine.life person must be sincere, honest, understanding and family oriented.
