My wife (once, and she vowed never again !)

It's a reason I don't use social networks, other
than fora such as this one.,

I am a bit dissapointed as I have just sent her $25 USDk to help starving relatives,unlock 10 mil in unwanted bereavement money in gold bars and help her flee persecution in Bongolesia.

That is how I met my fiance. She should be able to visit the states this year (so we can meet) if her government's visa office stops losing the money I keep sending them.

You can tell it's fake when it starts out "I am buxom tall Russian blond named Peggy."

The FBI published a paper on this sort of thing and claimed that $7,000,000 USD a day went out of the country to support these scams. Considering how many of these things are still around, someone must be sending money.

Grief, someone's friendly to you and you are like oh my god this must be a scam. maybe she is genuinely rusian and buxom and thinks you are really nice with a sparkle in the website.

Could happen.

Its not just social networks.

The problem with Facebook, Smartphones, iThings, etc. is that you very suddently have a mass of people that can easily connect to eht interwebs and don't know that clicking on any random link is bad…

SMC1 other than there being a dozen books detailing my many adventures, and my life story having been filmed on several occassions I'd have to say "no".

Some of us just have naturally sparkly websites you know.

I used to get that trash all the time, and started exchanging email addresses among the people-for example, this nigerian politician would get a forward from the Russian chick. I'd fill up all the spots, so each would get like 3 messages at a time, and then do it again till I was tired.

If the emails had US phone #s, I called them and left messages till they left me alone. Didn't know what else worked.
