Be careful with these scammers. Once you email the m they hacker in to your computer system and track you movement on the computer. If you check their IP Adrress it usually starts 127. . . the are usig an IP Blocker so they cannot be traced. Beware of any money showing up at you home because it is all fraud and they try to get you to cash it and wire the the good funds whlie you're left with the bag. How ever crazy it seems never use you web cam with these pople for am reason. Stay away fron these two ladies Combel23103 and Immaculate_Lady_1972. both are yahoo id names.

Hello Handsome
Hello I am Elena by name I am a 41 years old single white female, divorce with one daughter name Diane she is 10 years now she is all I have in life now since I have no man to be with I am 5'6 tall I was born and raised in Harrison in Michigan. I lost my Dad when I was 10 years old and my Mom have always been taking care of me till I get to the age of 35 before she died but I can do that on my own now. Am into the business of Selling Fabrics and Textile in a large scale so I travel to countries to supply to companies. I am in West Africa currently to supply some of my goods to a company and will be back pretty soon to the state. Most people would describe me as being an honest, trust- worthy and very dedicated person. I am very easy going, open-minded, and liberal person. I am a true romantic at heart and have a very sensitive and gentle disposition. Definitely not in to head games and always believe that honesty is the best policy. I am also an animal and nature lover. I really love the outdoors, sports, health and fitness, reading, computers etc. I am not into the nightclub or bar scene. I am slightly more introverted than extroverted but am good at communicating one on one or in small groups. I have been told that I am an excellent listener and problem solver, which I think is a plus. I am looking for honest,respectful, easy going, open-minded and trust-worthy man to have a good conversation with and see how it works out for the both of us and see if the chemistry is there.
N:B.. I would love to relocate my man anywhere he is if that what he want because I know how important he is to me and wont hurt him because I need him so much well let get to know each other first and I will tell you more about this if you care to know.This's a new year 2008 and i dont want to play any games bcoz this year i've made up my mind to be honest and open minded to that man i would be communicating with cos we dont know where it may lead to . I would really love to know more about you, do you have a Yahoo messenger IM? I have one.( Prettyelena001 ) You can add me or email me at ( ) so we can chat and get to know more about you and see if you are what am looking for on here, Really make my day if I heard back from you.

I have just been scammed on . Like everybody is saying he was nice looking, younger than me, good job "Jeweller"!! on a business trip to Africa. He romanced me with words for 3 weeks and today he finally asked me for money to help him fly to his sick mother in Amsterdam. He was suppose to be Dutch working in England for the past 5 years. He blamed Nigeira for the bad connections and never phoned and spoke to me. He wrote the best romance emails I have seen for years and through my vulnerability I pledged my love for him. What an idiot I was. Lucky when he came to ask for money - I realised it was a scam. Be careful out there girls, his name on the net was Raymond Philips under the address. He was found on

Online users can hide behind emails and chat, but not phone. I use to screen my new online dates over the phone without revealing my phone number. Voice, tone, selection of words make it quicker to screen. It keeps the fakes away and makes the reality close to perception.

Hi something very similiar to this happened to me, or is happening to me. I will highlight the signs of scam below. While browsing the site of I came across a man in NY. He was a:
-GORGEOUS 50 year old man, I at first look thought it was a picture from a brochure.
-Said his parents were dead, as well as adopted parents and his wife died 7 years before. And he has a 20 year old son going to school in Spain.
-After speaking with this man, I told him I wanted him to send me a framed photo of himself and gave him my business address. The next day he said he sent me a surprise. I thought it would be the picture. Two days later I received 30 LONG STEM RED ROSES from a company called Niagara Fulfillment, who said they received the roses from .uk So I contact them and the information is completely sealed, they couldn't tell me who the roses were from. But of course this guy said he sent them to me from his florist in NY. Ha!
-He told me he was living in Hicksville, NY. Couldn't find any information on him.
-My ex-husband lived overseas for quite some time and when he would email me his English was broken, and used strange words.
-He called me from a "Satelitte Landline Phone" called a Thuraya. Found that these phones are only found in Africa and Europe. I could barely understand him and he kept getting cut off the line from me. He also told me he lived alone and I heard women in the background and he quickly told them to "SHHH" and then told me he had to go. He didn't sound like a white man from New York, but a man with a strong Nigerian accent.
-Got him to confess that he was currently in Nigeria on business and he told me he was in Lagos, staying at a Sheraton Hotel.
-His messages on YAHOO MESSENGER took forever to get over to me and anytime I asked him personal information he signed offline.
-I asked him if he needed cash or a Visa and he said, "No I don't need nothing honey, I am the man in the photo."

Hey all. I have received an email sent to my Everyonesconnected profile. Of course the biggest analyzer that I am I baited him along at his own game. So here it is another romantic internet scammer. His name is Anthony Williams Labber 40yrs of age. He didn't waste anytime and quickly professed his love for me, wanted to get to know me better and told me to contact him at his yahoo address which is He told me, get this, born in cleveland, OH only child raised by single parent, at the age of 8 sent to Manchester UK to further studies, lives in Washington, D.C. Then he said that he is currently in Nigeria working as a teacher in a mission. Then it really gets thick parent died 10yrs ago and then spouse dies of cancer 8yrs ago and no siblings.

What really caught my attention right away is the broken English in the body of the email and the pictures of this guy is handsome. However, I'm an English major, and study forgein languages. I'm very familar with accents and dialects. Where he said he is from and what he is writing doesn't match at all. Great big RED FLAG. To all my friends on the internet if you have been duped don't feel bad, shame on them, and just chalk up to experience. Continue to keep others informed and share your information. As long as you don't send money, gifts or re-ship packages your alright. Best regards to all.

He used the story of his parents being killed in a car accident and his girl friend dumped him right after. So he has No one!
Got me roped into thinking he was the one...then asked for money to get here from Nigeria. Needed $250 for BTA fees.
I looked it up...there is no such thing as BTA fees.

I met a woman online. She seemed so very nice. She worked as she said for Tricare and said all the right things. She lured me in, stating that she had been hurt by an ex lover to the point of having to change her name. We exchanged emails and I wanted to meet her but one as it turned out, something was always happeneing to provent that meeting. She however stated that she was having feelings for me and wanted that to grow. She was as she said going over seas to set up offices for the Military in and would be away. She set up accounts in other names so she could contact me under different names. after two years of this I was going to break it off with her and she faked an auto accident and sent me a threatening email. She used a FAKE name, saying she had to change it after an ex beat her up. She sent me a picture of herself and of course it was an old picture. End result, she was a liar, she did work for tricare but everything she told me was a lie. She wrote an article on AIDS yet she slept around and didnt tell me, which ticked me off. The woman I am sure is still working this scam on others. I never met her family, I never knew the truth until I left her. I learned alot from this. The point, there are sick people in this world that will prey on you if you are not savy. Now I tell everyone I know about her and her games. Hopefuly one day she will be caught in her own game. Now I check out the very basic of information. I believe nothing until it is proven. those who do the I read your email and liked what I read, those are scammers.. They look for prey dont be one, no matter how lonely you are. better to be alone than to be a taken.

i'm new to online dating and i just ran across a very curious girl. she sent me a message on professing interest in me and how much she liked my profile. and she suggest i might email her to her yahoo address instead of through .
after reading that initial message, i tried clicking on her profile but it is unavailable (though her thumbnail pic still shows up in my "connections" page).
You know, this sort of stuff happens all the time.


And it's pretty hurtful, too.

Sadly, I'd say, move on.

If they're moving away from the safety of that OLD'g website so soon, I'd warn against the person as part of some Basic Safety Precautions with OLD'g.

Instead, focus on real women where their profiles are STILL UP.

Good luck and keep a positive attitude!

All the best,
