    Does anyone else ever get messages like these?

    "Hello,

    My name is Miss M 21yrs old from west africa i am writing these lines that might change my life forever and think about you reading them. It feels incredible that people from two different ends of the world can so easily talk to each other. I am in the processing of looking for my soulmate.

    I can say that I am Intelligent, kind, reliable, decent, honest, good looking, physically fit, interested in sport, love children and animals, even tempered, financially secure, generous, caring, attentive, and have a good sense of humor but then your dreams would have been answered. It is not the words that have meaning but our actions and character. Take time to explore and you will discover those qualities in me.

    I know I must tell you about myself, but before I start I want to tell you that I am very serious in my intentions to find a good person Note that if we decide that we are right for each other we can meet in person and see if we like each other. I don`t seek an Internet romance. I want a real relationship. If you like what you read about me, please get back to my email adress below"

    Hit "DELETE !"

    It must be the latest scam.
    I just read the exact same thing somewhere else.

    And, in answer to your question, no, I have never received an email like that.

    I have received several that have to do with me getting part of an inheritance if I will only send them all of my bank account information.

    i think you found your soulmate.

    just fill her in on some details: you take her passport away and she must do laundry, vacuuming, walk the dog, cook every meal perfectly, clean the house, make your bed, give you a b/j when you're desperate and doesn't ever get paid. .. usual house wife stuff .

    i never get messages like that..
    no one loves me.

    lol, mark it as spam if it's your regular email. Then delete.

    ROFL if you got his here on RJ? Copy and paste to admin - they can block em I think.

    I'd probably reply: Love is easily found on your shores as Long distance may be lost at sea. But if BLKGUY4YOU is your common handle....Your putting yourself out there! LOL

    oh, so no one loves you huh?, tell you what. I'll play match maker. I'll pass on your contact details to Miss M. I just want my commission after you both set up house.

    I'll send you my banking details....

    On second thought, why don't you give me your banking details or credit card so that I can get my payment....

    It's called Phishing and they target people who respond to get further emails or even identity information

    Be careful ... do not respond to emails like that

    Don't reply it confirms your email is a good contact.
    I have discovered so many attorneys, bankers, etc representingdead relative trying to give me millions all I have to do is supply my bank account number so they can secretly transfer the money in.

    When I had an active My Space account I used to get dozens of girls named Rose aor Mary or Helen who all ended uplooking very Asian and living in China that would happily share their private photos for a fee.
    My sons laughed they never got those friend requests. It was the divorced tag that brought out the whore.
