This is annoying. I don't know if anyone else out there is having problems with phishers. This "girl" messages me on yahoo. She has a picture of a really good looking European girl for her avatar/picture. She tells me her parents are from Nigeria. Ok, something doesn't quite add up here. Being slightly familiar with Nigeria (my minor is anthropology), I ask her what tribe her parents are from. She can't say. Now come on! Anyone who is from Nigeria or has a parent from Nigeria can tell you what tribe they are. Then she tells me she is from the Republic of Benin and her father was Yibo. At least she has her geography straight but her tribes wrong. The Ibo tribe is on the other side of Nigeria around the Nigerian Delta. The place that people are kill each other over the oil wells. She then insists on viewing my webcam and getting my email address. After telling her that I wouldn't do either until she sent a pic, she just went away. I am trying to find out how she got my yahoo address. Who knows. People who try to phish your info from you are pretty annoying.

Actually I think they search the Member Directory on Yahoo. I've gotten similar emails from the guys who say they're from Nigeria or some other foreign country. I just ignore/block them and that takes care of the problem.

Hope this helps.

I assume they are managing to tag your computer somehow with spyware or intercept you logging onto a ff despite your firewall. I've had some sex sites show up in my y email too and I sure didn't give them the address. I did wonder if a ff was harvesting our addresses for sites with which they had business interests. I only go these emails when I initially logged on with a male profile and they were all geared towards men...obviously they had a way of knowing I was "male" on a ff and I assure you it wasn't because I was camming, IMing OR sending emails to other women.

I've had the same experiences with a couple of women (yeah, I'm female and NOT looking for another female) emailing me at my personal address...NOT a Yahoo address. They were the "website solicitors" you guys get emailing you so you'll pay to see their pics, etc. I emailed AdultFriendFinder cust service about it and they were enormously unhelpful. They said that they didn't make my info available and that whenever we sign the agreement here, we take the chance of being "found out" by others frequenting this site. Now don't ya'll feel safe and anonymous?
