Subject: Hi


Ok so this was her last email header from today. I can't tell heads or tails because of the new IP6 format. She claims she pays 250$ a month because of Menstrual Problems (drugs, panties, and other things). She has asked twice. I am right now just playing along until she proves herself to me by meeting up with me in real life. Anyway.. . . Is this a common scam or is this a twist of some other scam. I am pretty much sure she is trying to scam because she claims she has no job and trying to get her PHD, She claims she is a nurse and are looking into colleges right now! I want to shut down this scammer by posting this to see what type of responses I get from people who might fall victim to this!

Do not hate the scammers, but pitty them for they do not know any better!

Let's just say that you won't be meeting anyone in real life any time soon.

You aren't going to get anything from a gmail header. When the web interface is used (which is true the vast majority of the time) the headers won't show the true location.

As far as the scenario itself goes, it is a VERY common scam, right down to the "menstrual problems" which the scammers, who are more often male, use because many men are embarrassed or feel like this is not an appropriate topic for a man to discuss. The scammers have learned that this particular request is likely to be challenged or questioned as much as other money requests, so they use it quite often.

Is there a way to report gmail accounts that we suspect are being used to scam people? I would think Google would want to stop that being that they claim they are not evil!

We do not recommend the reporting of free email accounts as it takes the scammer only seconds to set up a new one and get back to his victims - and the new address won't appear in searches on sites like this, so victims researching the person writing to them will find nothing negative about them. It is far better to leave the email addresses active, so that anyone searching for the email address [email protected] knows that it is being used by a scammer.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

Mod Note: All images are stolen by a scammer and used in his scams. The real person is not involved. (BW)

So if we are going to do make it easier to research this scammer. Let's also make sure there are pictures available for people to find:
