I have come across a girl on Tagged that had contacted me via email.

She said that she was interested in me, based off my profile information and she wanted to talk to me more since she wasn't very experienced with the dating scene.

She gave me her email address and asked me to email her. She didn't ask me for any private information, just stuff about me any date would ask in a conversation. We have exchanged a few emails, but I cannot help but be suspicious.

Its funny, but the reason I'm suspicious is that she was asking me if i was a trusting and genuine person. I am, but that kicked off little alarm bells in my head.

So while I have been exchanging emails and chatting via yahoo I did some research on her. Her tagged profile matches her myspace and facebook profiles, with one exception. Her tagged profile said she was in new york, yet she claimed to be from california. She ended up explaining that to me without me asking, saying she had moved over to live with her mother who had retired.

I did some further research while we have been chatting, and I did an IP address check. She says she's in Santa Rosa, CA But her IP address Routes to Sunnyvale, CA, several dozen miles away. She's on a DSL internet account, and the last digits of her IP changes between emails. though she says she uses the same computer.

I have only seen a total of 3 pictures of her, but they were all consistent, one of which was a fairly mundane situation, not a model shot.

Also, she comes across as really intense of a person, especially how much she want's to find the right guy. I dunno, she may just be a little desperate. She explained it as her parents raised her to be a good woman for the right guy. She's also a catholic and brings up some religious passages and sometimes talks about 'God Willing'. I have no problem with this as I am a religious person myself.

At either rate, I was just wanting to get some feedback before I committed to anything. She lives only moderately far from where I live. I live in phoenix, AZ. She wants to come meet me, maybe just a little too quickly for my tastes, but has no money for the plane ticket cause she has no job atm. I could get the money to buy the tickets. She suggests going through her uncle who apparently is a travel agent. When I offered to just buy the tickets for her she objected but seemed to acquiesce in the end.

I really need some feedback here. I want to trust her, cause everything else I am seeing seems good, but I am not a fool to just be taken in without being cautious. There are enough signs to make me suspicious and enough evidence to make me think she may be authentic.

I would take whatever help you can give me.

You are right to be suspicious, as there certainly are some early signs consistent with a scammer here, but it is by no means guaranteed based on the information you have provided.

Warning signs based on the details you provided:
- immediately going from site to yahoo
- claim of inexperience in the dating scene (even though she approached you)
- the difference in locations
- the trusting and genuine question (you were right to consider this a red flag)
- the "good woman for the right guy" piece (this is a pretty big flag)
- The amount of religious talk (as you mentioned)
- wanting to visit you so soon but no money for plane ticket
Sunnyvale is actually yahoo's headquarters, so the IP addresses you are talking about are not actually representative of her (or his) location--it may be that you pulled the wrong IP address, but I have seen some (and I have never figured out why it happens some of the time) that don't give you the real IP's too.
The set of 3 pictures doesn't mean too much, as scammers do sometimes use pics from social networking sites, and porn stars are very popular too--and if it is someone like Raven Riley or Melissa Midwest (scammer favorites), they will have plenty of "normal" pictures to choose from.

Again, at this stage there are warning signs but it is not definite that you have a scammer.

Where to go from here? There are several things you can do:
1) Post a link to her profiles or her first couple of emails here or you can send a PM to me or any of other old-timer you see frequenting this particular board. We will help you to look for typical grammar/spelling/punctuation errors of Africans or Russians, standard script elements or techniques (for instance, does she call you hunni, sweet, love, or any other term of endearment instead of your name? This is often a sign of a script used by a scammer who wants to send it to multiple people without even making the effort to update the name).
2) take her photos, and search for them using tineye and/or scamdigger. No hits doesn't guarantee that you aren't dealing with a scammer, but hits on scamdigger means you definitely are.
3)recheck the IP or sign up for a free trial of readnotify so you can get a real fix on location.
4) take some of the more unique or romantic pieces of her emails, and google them. Does her English go from bad to good and then back again? In many cases, the sections where the English is good are usually copied from someone or something.
5) look at the timing of delays in her chats with you. Are they long enough that she may also be chatting with someone else?

Of course, if she is a scammer, at some point there will be a problem that only your money can fix...

I see what you mean. But I think I found my answer.

I signed up for readnotify, and did a search through scam digger. nothing came up yet, but she hasn't read the email yet.

It doesnt matter though, I looked deeper through the complete header (she used yahoo mail.) and picked up the following ip 41.219.206.129. Which when I checked that IP address came up LAGOS, NIGERIA.

... *Sigh*

Go to the emails you received and post them here with all of your own information removed, these early email will be scripts, prewritten and sent to all of their victims, also any phone numbers, links to profiles or anything else they have told you.

The more you can post the better.

Photos are also good to post but can be a little more tricky, there is information on that in the Sticky but if you get stuck you can email them to ralph @ scamwarners.co.cc please remove the spaces and he will sort them out

If you have any dramas just ask

Thank you for the info

Just having a look through and doing a couple of searches

Not an exact match but this search is quite telling Click Here
Another not exact hit but very telling Click Here
But this search result leaves no doubt at all Click Here

Yeah, they are all prewritten, the occasional bit thrown in just for you, they will not have answered your questions well if at all and closer inspection will reveal some bad english, especially when moving away from script in the later emails.

Glad you were suspicious enough to ask

Glad you spotted a scam Endrance and didn't get taken..

I've just checked out the membership number [5413656111] and it comes up as Unknown.. So perhaps they have booted it off.

But Tagged is a hot bed for scammers, I have a mate who thinks it's wonderful.. I got into his profile and there's his personal e-mail address, his home phone number, his cell number, and his address.

I've tried to tell him, tried to show him, waste of time, But now I know why he's always on the phone.. Some people you can't help.. But I wish anyone the best of luck, trying to get anything out of him. I think he's watertight..
