Neither of these two emails were written by ladies looking for love. They were written by scammers looking for your money.

The 'profile' this scammer claims to have seen was merely a comment left in a guestbook.

The 'something serious and important' that this scammer 'wants to tell you' is very likely to be an invented story about how they have millions of dollars they need to transfer to your bank account. There will be fees for you to pay before this can happen. The money, however, will never be transferred - because it does not exist.

BRIEF SUMMARY OF THIS TYPE OF SCAM

This scam has a romance element - whereby a scammer is "pretending" to be a young girl - and will send stolen photographs in an attempt to appear legimate. The scammer will most likely "pretend" to be all alone, parentless (they died recently and tragically) and is in now in a refugee camp, where a "pastor figure" allows "her" to use a PC to mail the victim.

The scammer will mention a fortune (cocao/cash/diamonds) ect - and request you to mail "another person" - same scammer or scam partner - lawyer/banker/barrister - who will need some fee paid before the "imaginary" riches are transfered to the victim.

The scammer "pretend" girl - will fall in love with you and plan to travel to you - and live happily ever after with "her" knight in shining armour.

It is all lies - scammers always lie - all they care for is the money they hope you will wire to them.

Delete and do not reply to this and other scammers peddling the same/similar lies
