    I've been messaging with the person called "Crazylove" for several weeks now. We switched over to Yahoo IM and things seemed to be going alright, and then an interesting twist entered into it all. He says he's in Africa right now, contracted malaria and needs money. I've not sent him any and will not. I suggest possible help for him there, but he seems to constantly come up with reasons why he can't - often saying he has no money. I'm wondering if anyone knows him.

    He'll probably also inform you that he's a friend of your long-lost uncle who found a city made of diamonds which you've now inherited if you pay him the $8000 deposit.

    Naw, he didn't ask for $8,000. lol. It wasn't a big amount, but if I sent money, I'd be giving out personal info. Besides, I can't figure out if he's who he claims to be.

    This has too many signs of a scam and one not even disguised that well. You are not sending him money, but there is probably some naive person who has probably fallen for it, as he is probably simultaneously attempting the scam with many people. Well we can never be 100% sure, the story of distress, requests for money on the internet, and wanting it sent to Africa are all bad signs.

    The personal info is probably what he really is looking for.

    Thanks, everyone, for your responses. Nope, no phone calls. He did ask for my phone # but I know better. I wait till several months go by and I'm pretty sure he's trustworthy, then I usually go to Yahoo and cam. come to think of it, I could cam with whomever on this site. Hum. I think I must be a bit slow on the uptake and very thick in the head. lol. Desperate, even? Willing to believe the best of people unless otherwise proven wrong? Man, am I messed up? lol.
