Do hope you reported...

I just reported one of those! Email to me was in English that made no sense, could tell it was put through one of those translators, and he wanted instant off-site contact. I've already learned through other sites what to look for just by getting enough contact from these scamsters (that's what one site to eradicate them calls them, Nigerian scamsters...probably 'cuz they multiply like hamsters, then disappear into dark holes), and it matched the examples on this site.

If in doubt, report it...let them trace the IPP address and figure it out.

Btw, this is the first site I've seen that warns you about them and tells you how to spot them.

I hope you reported her! That's just as bad...doesn't matter what gender is doing to which one!

Yeah, had a guy who had already told me that he was a soldier from Denmark serving in the UN Peacekeeping Force in Nigeria (they have no current missions in that African country) ask for money to come here (NO), then had the gall to ask me to get him an AT&T phone and SIM card and send it to him so that he could keep contact easier (NO). I'd already busted him on his language translation...he started in Dutch in response to my German (after asking me what all that was), and corrected it after I called him on it. I played the game for a while to see just when the first money request would come in...yep, about a week. The phone request was the end of the game. I told him to get lost. (I hate playing games anyway.)

Good to know. Just report them and I believe even this site warns us against scammers... One other thing... be really careful if someone lures you over to like yahoo IM and tries to tell you to run some admin page to see them in a video cam. It usually is a scam as well, and some hackers can actually dump a program onto your PC - usually called "dropper." Be careful out there...

Tis the season to pull on the heart strings. I just feel bad for the people that have no self respect to do that sort of thing. If they have internet access you shouldnt be given them anyways.
