Everyday there are floods of scammers – from Nigeria, Russia and Utah…working Online Dating Scams – Here is “a classic” Scam artist at work:
How are you doing?Hope thanks for the message fine-Now whats next!… hmmn lets get to know more about each other, i like your profile. We share a lot in common and i think your not just interesting but amazingly gorgeous… and would like to know more about you…

ok i will be happy if you email me direct to my private email address ok that way we can continue this conversation.
I quickly had to send you an email… i would appreciate if you can email me back on yahoo..

Thomas ( not his real name – not his real photo) sends out letters like this all day long…hoping to snag one “innocent” who doesn’t know the ropes or the huge number of evil creeps out there.
A quick read of the letter – rife with copy and pasted cliches and lies screams SCAM.
Be careful out there.
