Well, now I've heard everything!!
This site was recommended to me because people were supposed to be honest.
One young lady whom I have been corresponding with alot recently appears to have been the committor of fraud.
Her handle is triciasermon and her profile says she lives in Dickinson North Dakota. But her emails claimed she was in Benin West Africa. ANd she longed to come back to the states. Un huh!!
Today I got a message from passion.com saying her profile had been deleted for fraudulent reasons. Seems she has been asking members for help getting back to the good old USA. Please send money and I will be the girl of your dreams...and so on.
She had me believing her completely. I was ready to send the money. Some things in her story didn't match out so I was suspicious, but she is very beautiful or at least her pictures are. The deal sealer was when she sent me a semi nude photo. Ta DA!! How much do you want and where should I send it??
But as luck would have it my Western Union agent was very skeptical and wouldn't send it to the address she wanted. Instead he offered a different address. So I emailed her back to see if that would be ok. Then I got the message from passion. All access to her profile has been restricted and it is as good as gone.
So far no return of my email. Wow!! that was close.
Did anyone else out there get taken by this intoxicating young lady?? I wonder now if they were even her pictures or if she had stolen someone elses??
So chalk one up to the fraudulent never quit. It will make me much more skeptical in my future dealings with members here. I guess the old adage "If it's too good to be true...it probably is!!" Is true!!
Too bad though, she was gorgeous. I can sure fanatsize about how great it would have been if it had been real. She sent very convincing and great emails describing how much she loved me and what she would do for me when she got here. Sigh...and so my life continues...oh well better luck next time.

"Too bad though, she was gorgeous" ... chances are, she really wasn't. "She" was probably a "he". Overall, this IS a good site, but because it's so large, there are some that slip under the radar. I'm glad you were able to get away from this one before it really cost you. And it's good that when it happens, people like you are considerate enough of the rest of us to let us know.|
