“Hello sunshine

How are you ?. I was going through your profile I am quite fascinated by the cute word i read from your profile. You sound so wonderful and nice. I realize you processes all the qualities I needed in woman and your profile caught my eyes and captured my soul.. am a very good Christian with good sense of humor to me age is never a barrier in relationship.

I will like to know if you would like to chat so that we get to know each other better….. well i am Joe Biden and i am a widower and a father of one, l love helping people especially the less privilege ones,l like going dancing, swimming and playing golf….I’m new on this site and don’t know how much this can work out as i do not believe so much in the internet as a means of dating …. i will like to know you better if you don’t mind .

Love Greetings

Joe Biden”

Now.. quite obviously this is a scam..

First – It cracks me up that he has named himself Joe Biden.  (The name of the Vice President of the United States for those of you not from here, or those of you from here who are incredibly unaware..)

Generally,  the online dating scammers will appear to use a translator to craft their message.   (I am a very good processor of the qualities he is searching for..)    They are almost always of Christian faith and/or “God-fearing.”   And they are always a widower.    

And — if it ends something weird, like “Love Greetings”..  that’s probably the biggest indicator.

So – watch out for that.. this goes both ways…

I’m actually surprised I didn’t also get a yahoo email address to respond to.

    I’ve received scam emails on all the sites as well. I blame the dating sites themselves for not doing a better job of trying to regulate scam emails. There making tons of $$$$. They should be able to come up with a way to do that.
