I got this message from a lovely lady (I'm sure she's not a Nigerian scammer) and was wondering if I'm special or if she's contacting lots of people. Anyone who's done any research can see that I would be interested in contacting her for scammer fun but since it's so obvious I'm not going to bother.

It makes me think that someone really wants me to answer them, which also makes me think that it isn't really a scammer, but it's a fake scammer who doesn't know how to scam people, if that makes sense.

You could always email her back with a link to your fun with scammers post...

Then they could be educated on how to do it properly... lol

I just looked it up: Romance/bank phishing scam.

And no, I didn't get one, yet.... We don't need another "Helen"

So if nobody else got the message then I'm assuming someone is deliberately trying to get me to answer the scammer, which means that they're pretending to be a scammer to scam me? How stupid is that? But dumber things have happened.

I got one. I deleted it right away. It is a scam, and an old one - I actually giggled in surprise to see it again. :-) 

I have a huge personal dislike of scammers, and call them out if/when possible. I know they mostly don't care, but sometimes I can't help it. I hate people preying on elderly, for example. Like, with the recent IRS scam, when they call someone's phone, and scare people out of their money, that is supposedly owed in taxes. 

I ask the caller what his id number is, and say I am "also an IRS representative", surprised to get a call, since it is against the policy, and that IRS always and only MAIL notices, and ask for their ID and a return phone number again, so "my supervisor" can check with their supervisor on any violation of the IRS policy. 

And this. I can't wait to try this some day LOL (just kidding, but really, the internet has EVERYTHING!)

I usually write back to them for fun and see how long I can string them along. They don't usually contact me on here, though, they're branching out.

I got one last night from someone named Thelma.  She keeps trying to get time to email her direct.  I keep telling her to leave all messages in my CC mailbox.  lol

Auntginn ~~ I also got one from Thelma.  It was short and actually sounded fairly reasonable.  Although I've deleted it, it went something like this, "Hi Dear.  I have a question , please contact me at x x x . c o m", Thelma.   I responded by asking if Thelma could pls provide more info since I didn't know to which thread she was referring, and got back an almost identical response to her first one.

Deleted them.

lol.... I asked them to post here as to the nature of her request and she said.  To be friends and further our relationship.  She wanted to send me pics.

lol  I keep saying "She"  who knows who really is behind these.

Well, there is some random pouty-lipped duck-faced photo in the cake gallery. Perhaps it is Thelma. Or Madou.

I got one from Thelma. I also got one on FB a few months ago saying the same thing. They want our bank account to "transfer" money to it. It's bullshit.
