    Im getting tired of the number of scammers on this site... They try to pass themselves off as Americans but their misuse of our grammar gives them away every time... I think this site and our members need to take a more active role to report them...

    I'm pretty sure everyone does report them. They're easy to spot. Usually stolen images. Introductory message wanting to establish a deep friendship. Bad grammar. Body measurements that are totally whack because they don't know how to convert from metric to imperial. Always targets older guys.

    So if you get some random message from a cute young twink that's 9 foot tall, has bad grammar, and wants to be your best friend.. you should be a little suspicious. icon_lol.gif

    lol, we've had our share. Usually we engage and wait for the issue of money to come up. Then off we send everything - to admin. icon_wink.gif

    What, you mean they claim to be "college students," and yet they can compose a coherent sentence? Yes, I suppose that is a dead giveaway. Some of them even expose themselves by knowing words like "their" and "role."

    It is clear that the OP is bona fide.

    Your post proceeds from several misconceptions, and I will list a couple of obvious ones here: (1) scammers are "foreigners" and aren't familiar with the English language; and (2) Americans use proper English grammar. First, not all foreigners write and/or speak horrendous English. You'd be surprised that many foreigners write and/or speak English better than many native-born Americans. Second, not all Americans write and/or speak proper English. In fact, there are tons of college-educated native-born and naturalized Americans whose grammar is shamefully atrocious. Scammers are scammers, no matter their race, ethnicity, nationality, or citizenship--and we should all get rid of these parasites. However, let's not make assumptions and create stereotypes that mislead.
