    Excuse me, Redhead, It's called GOOFING OFF! Picking at the bad guy who made those terriable remarks to the women on that post. Please go back and read all the way through the thread before you jump on me about being silly with the very mean guy. Sorry if I offended you Redhead. I work very hard for the money I make and alot of hours too. I don't need an able body man asking me for money when I have my children to support. Those people begging, probably make more than I do.

    Altruistic.....I have had so many of those emails, it isn't funny. The last one I received was just about a month ago, and I played along for awhile, then tired of the BS. I have also posted about 2 guys on this site who had been from TX and CA supposedly, only to have MM not post my remarks!! The next time, if there is one, I will post their pics as Tasha or cutie suggested and see how that goes. I have seen oone on the Nigerian scam site tho, so know he has been found out!

    Bob, what a great idea. I will have to try that next time.....if there is one!! :)

    Ok TallBlonde, I will go first lol. Here he is. This guy is on MM. I need someone who can name him. I got this photo from the scammer site. It's funny, I just viewed this guy's profile yesterday. I remember this photo very well. When I got to the scam site, I was a little freaked out. I had to save this pic and find this person.He goes by the name Kelvin Smith. If you know him, send me some email.

    I have problems with homeless people down here asking me for money. I usually say F%c$off. If I am going to give money to a homeless person, it will be the old man minding his own buisness not asking for a dime.

    Excuse me, Tasha, but since you blatantly posted that you're a gold digger on another thread, how much difference is there really between someone who tries to con their way out of someone's money and one who goes after a man just for his money and gifts?

    Okay, I'll give you that you're at least being up front, but otherwise, I see a very thin line.

    And so it happens again ...

    Two days ago I posted in this thread more about the MM experience of ladies from Ghana, Nigeria, the UK who perpetrate these scams and gave some of their profile names. And again, MM admins decided not to release that post for all of you to see.

    I guess it must be bad for business ...

    Try posting their pictures Benefactor... I have a photo of a scammer who is on here now and also on a scam site, I just don't want to put it up by myself. I would feel much better if someone agreed to do it with me.

    typically, these scammers do a couple of things...first a big proclamation "I'm Jane Goodenough from Tampa Florida USA" OK...right, like I need to be told up front this information that is already in the profile and the USA is your other giveaway. Go check the weather temperature on line and ask them what the temperature is there and what time it is. They won't have a clue. Want to have fun...here is what I've done...I say to them, "are you from Nigeria? I am from Nigeria too! Gosh, there are so many of us on here trying to make a living we are now trying to rip each other off. Good luck to you!"

    or... "you are from Houston Texas? Me too! I am a student studying in Texas. But am from Nigeria originally. No way, you are too?"

    Personally, I think that country should be severed from the internet until they can build up a police force to keep law and order.


    I thought that I was the only one who occasional indulge in light hearted banter with these nuts. you may have me beat though. Believe it or not there are some poor people in the USA who have fallen for these scams. I looked it up and found out that these scams have more participants than the lottery. I guess it will never cease now because you know how our government treats big business- they find a way to profit%

    I'm sure the operators of MM are inundated with scammers. My internet auction business, like ebay, is hammered with scammers but it is a rare day they actually get thru to our users. I can tell you stories that you wouldn't believe. Best one of the Nigerian scammers (the source of the bulk of scamming), use the free deaf long distance service offered by AT&T. This way, they get free long distance and you can't trace their call at all, and they use the AT&T operator to do all their dirty work. I can also offer you stories that are amazing...we had one guy from South Korea rip off about 10 of our users for $50,000. Thru the Korean embassy influencing the Korean police we were able to recover every penny, and the guy is now in jail...and we received apologies from the Korean people and government. If you receive any contact from Nigeria, run like hell...

    Yeah I've had my run in with the "419" Nigerian scams. Someone must have passed around a memo that we missed. It probably read like this "Wealthy Americans aren't as smart as we thought,just give em a sob story" or "Who wants to Bilk a Millionaire, just contact US" lmao

    Anyway, I had a girl from the ivory coast to contact my business e-mail. She said that she was an orphan whose mother died giving birth to her and her father, a wealthy cocoa merchant had passed 2 yrs earlier. He left her an inheritance ($25,000,000)which she was too young to collect and no one in her family could be trusted. Her father advised her on his death bed the seek an American partner to invest the money in real estate on her behalf. She had fled her fathers house for fear of her life, due to her uncles greed. She had never worked because she was a student and didn't have any money to survive (but she had Internet access :)) OK now hears the catch. Her father had deposited this money with a securities company, contents listed as family valuables. The company charges $50 /day to keep the box and her father had deposited it 4 years earlier. So for 15% on the back end, I only had to hire an attorney in Abidjan(of course she new one), to transfer ownership of the trunk and pay storage plus shipping and handling to my care in the US. Also I had to call the securities company*** those numbers cost a small fortune- no I'm not that stupid. I entertained the correspondence for about four days. Then I wrote to her that I had forwarded her emails to the authorities and I hoped that they caught her before she found some other sucker. Of course didn't really do that because there had been no crime. Anyone who thinks that they might have helped her please leave your email and I will get back to you with a sob story- ok?

    Well Rob, I had the same thing happen a few weeks ago. Got an IM here from one guy whose profile said he lived in TX. As the chat progressed, he said he now lived in Africa and was taking care of his sick father! I asked why then his profile had that he resided in TX. The reply was his mother was from TX and his father from Africa.. The guy had NEVER been to TX! RED FLAG!!
    Not half an hour later, I got another IM from a different guy whose profile said he was from CA. HE said he was in Africa doing consulting. Yeah yeah! Give me a break. I may be old and blonde, but I'm not stupid!
    This was the first time someone had tried to scam me on MM, so I am VERY cautious now!

    I had one guy (on the chat line) who said he had grown up in the states but had to return to Nigeria to look after his sick father. His profile said black African descent but his photo was of a very good looking Caucasian. Didn't wait around for the hook. When I was living in Asia there were a lot of these scams going around on the Internet. Sorry don't remember his name, but ladies beware.
    (have been reading the posts for a while but this is my first time posting. Hi to all!)
