Hi there,

What is the procedure with scammers? One girl keeps sending me friend requests although I reject her every time. She has no post whatsoever and she always sends me the same message where she asks for my email. Here is the message so you could judge if she's a scammer or not:

"Greetings,
My name is faith,
i saw your profile today at (www.EnglishForward.com)and became intrested in you,i will also like to know you the more,and i want you to send an email to my email address so i can give you my picture for you to know whom i am.Here is my email address (***) i believe we can move from here!I am waiting for your mail to my email address above.(Remeber the distance or colour does age not matter but love matters alot in life)I will be happy to seeing a good responds from you
Thanks and remain blessed.
Your's in love faith,


send me your email adress in my box (*** ) so that i will send my photo and tell you more about me ok bye dear.faith,"

I can't get rid of her. Please do something about that. The girl's account is faithkhalifa .

Hi, thanks for reporting this.

1) It's not a girl, it's very likely to be a guy.
2) It's a scammer.
3) Don't reply to him if you don't want your email to be part of any spam-list.

3) He will be banned as soon as possible.
faithkhalifa has been banned.

It's really, really hard to ban a beautiful young girl full of love and carely, but 'goodbabe' is now 'goodbyebabe'.
Mister MicawberIt's really, really hard to ban a beautiful young girl full of love and carely, but 'goodbabe' is now 'goodbyebabe'.

Hehe. I don't know if I'm the only one who reports scammers, or people are naive and not aware of scammers. I recommend, if here's no topic for these kind of problems, to make it official, and just to rename it to 'Scammers' because I made a mistake when I was nameing this topic. I didn't know how these people are actually called Emotion: wink Just an idea.

Oh, and thank you Mister Micawber for banning them. These people are really annoying.

It's hard to catch them all, Damir, but we try. Mods find some of them, and members let us know of others. We encourage members to let us know-- with a screen name or a link-- of anything they suspect to be spam or scams.
Hey Damir,

Thanks for reporting those scammers!

This is a good idea to make a special thread to report them because, unfortunately, their number grows very fast. I renamed this thread and made it sticky. Please, keep on reporting if you come across any. I hope other members will join you in this! Emotion: smile
