    Another scammer on the make: Is it Alfred or Robert? This "love struck" scammer can't even keep his name straight.

    Yeah, just report them as 'spam'. Tell them to F*** off first if you so desire ;-)

    ? um. ok. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Just ignore the message. I've gotten lots of msgs like this over the years. Just ignore it and don't give it a second thought. Simple solution. Why bother getting bent out of shape about it?

    It's like when i log on to my gmail account it's filled with "survey requests" and scams telling me about working from home, losing weight, trying some new diet, buying some condo, enrolling in some online school, etc... Just a bunch of bullshit that I ignore. Same for fakes on social sites.

    I string them along for a little while. Then I block them.

    An enlarged penis is almost always welcome.

    i keep getting approached by scammers. two of the most recent presented themselves as US soldiers serving in Afghanistan. both were incredibly stupid. one wanted an IPhone delivered to an address in Ohio. the other gave me an address in Iowa and sought a money transfer. i reported both to realjock and their accounts have been blocked.

    Yeh, there are no age bias when it comes to online scammers. Don't forget there aren't just online love scammers that target all kinds of people like lottery scams or Nigerian princes who want you to transfer money for them. Anything a person desires, there is someone using it to try and scam them.
