I see another suspicious profile, from the US, another woman (?)

I've often wondered if the women on here have similar issues, male scammers? and if so, what countries are they mainly from?

I think men are more easily swayed by an attractive contact. If I receive any message telling me I'm lovely I block them immediately. :)

A lot say they're US military and are coming out and are settling here, funny thing is though they can't spell or put a sentence together properly, they tend to be almost impossibly good looking too, nobody believes they're real and not scammers.

Get quite a few strange messages that tell me that they think that I am wonderful, but give no indication that they have even read my profile. I had put this down to normal male behaviour, in the past. Do you mean that they might be scammers? Well, I never!

Do you guys get messages from women who just say 'Hi' and that it? I find quite a few blokes do that, to be honest I can't be bothered to reply to people like that, I have in the past and its like getting blood from a stone.

To answer the question, yes we do and often warn others in the Women's Room.

When reviewing photos, I often alert admin when I see suspicious photos. Military/very young looking Asian ladies/voluptuous and posed females etc .. they also have site names that give you a clue and captions to photos as well.

Good to see you again Mothballs .. erudite as ever! ;-)

I get loads from young blond fit women usually from some County in the USA.

The messages start by saying" Hello my dear, I am a God fearing woman looking for a honest man ".

So where in the bible does it say its ok to scam people ?.

'Do you guys get messages from women who just say 'Hi' and that it?'

I think once, in all the years on here; maybe I'm just lucky?

Hi Terry, Yrs definitely scammers and time wasters. Certain key phrases always alert me, one, 'I know how to treat a lady' Hmm...could that mean control them.beat them, scam them etc? Then God fearing. Asked one why he was scared of God but he didn't reply. And then they are honest or looking for someone honest. Meaning they are dishonest. Misuse of grammar always gives it away Thy never send a message that relates to anything in your profile and they do not answer questions asked. They only ask about you and general things that could be sent to anyone, such as 'how's your day been?' And then there are those, who just say 'hi' or wanna chat. Their profile is always equally brief, so I just ignore now. And yes some of the scammers have been from the US supposedly.
