Classic OKCupid Scam- can you spot the lies?


Four women in the Bay Area received this scam artist’s “Come On” and sent it on to me. I love playing “Spot the Scam,” do you?

How many lies, tales, false statements in this online dating profile jump out at you?

Psst: The first clue was the fake photo -which was a copy and pasted from a mens’clothing  catalog.


Mr. El Dorado “writes”

My self-summary:  I try to always be a gentleman. Besides walking the beach and watching the sun set (In landlocked El Dorado Hills?) I love to go walking hand in hand in a gentle summer rain, sit and cuddle on the couch watching a good movie or just taking.

On a typical Friday night I am:  Cooking dinner with my love and watch movie haha..

You should message me if   What do i want? i am looking for a woman that takes pride in himself, knows what he wants and is open to exploring a new relationship.

Honesty, trust, dignity, open communications, respect, sense of humor, romance are vital and critical in maintaining a relationship. (Sample: Copy and Paste 101)

it takes two of us not one, willing to give 100% of themselves along with compromises for a relationship to blah blah blah  work and survive. Good things come in time and if the spark exists, nature will take its course and we will ..

( How many clichés can one try to string together?)


The remainder of this is a train wreck of poor spelling, worse grammar and more trite clichés.

 In closing, he writes: When we are fortunate to make it this far in life, (60?!)

it is time to actual start living again ?

and giving life all we can give it.

i am physically fit, financially secure, like college football and basketball in person and watching on tv. “the greatest opportunity is the one not taken”


Buyer beware. The Dating pool is swimming  with sharks and scams.

The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you’ve got it made.
