Hi im new here, what a fun site you run hehe. Very Happy

I was looking for a nice girl on a christian dating site, I think theres many serious but ofcourse always some damned scammer too. And aparently they think im a fool but these scammers are usually easy to spot.
This one is called Victoria Cullen and according to the profile on the dating site she lived in Alaska, but in the emails I got theres no mention of Alaska, also she never answered my questions or reply in anyway. Also the first email I got was very affectionate and written like she know me soo well. I have not yet been asked for money but I know it will come soon, since I have been so nice in my erlier emails now this person sent me a very long email and seem like she/he wants to speed things up.
*Sorry if this is too long message..

Hello Blahdios, and welcome to eater!

First of all, from what you tell it looks like you are e-mailing her using your personal adress. This might not be smartest thing to do. They know your real name and data now. Although the odds are small that they really come and take revenge, it's better not to take chances. I advise you to set up a fake emailadress and bait her again from there. Read up on all the stickies, which will answer all your basic questions. I can also advise you to sign up for a mentor in the assistance for newcomers thread.

Forgive me for not reading that whole thing, but the bolded sentences tell me enough it's a scammer indeed Wink

To answer your question: if you want to bait her, play the perfect victim. So yes, do what a normal guy looking for love would do and be nice with your replies. Obviously, you will be answering from an alter ego, so don't use real life details. There's no need to put a lot of effort in these first mails, as they very rarely get read anyway. It's when they start asking for money and go off-script when the real fun begins.

Have fun, bait safe, and while you're awaiting for a mentor don't hesitate to ask your questions here! Very Happy

Thanks.
Yes I thought about that, this person got my email adress and my first name and maybe what town I live in. No specific detail really but It might not bet very safe perhaps?
I noticed that this persons account was deleted from the dating site quickly, but I didnt get any notification about it.

Well, the odds are really, really small that they will call someone to find your adress, come to your door and beat you up, that takes too much time and effort they prefer to put into paying victims. What they can do, and is more common, is that they will bomb your account with spam. Basically you will receive hundreds or thousands spam emails a day, which is very annoying if you're using your real adress. In the end it's best not to take chances and just use a baiter account.

Being a staff member on a dating site myself, I know how hard it is to weed out the scammers. They get deleted very quickly, and I can see who has messaged them (or who they have messaged) and those people will receive a notification from me. There is no way to tell if mails have occured that weren't sent through the site itself. It's good to see that the site you're on is fighting hard to keep them out aswell Smile

At first I wanted to punish them in some way but I dont want to do anything illegal. And now when im thinking of continuing to email this person im not even sure I want to keep doing it since I have to tell lies wich is against my principles.
Confused
Wish I could just report it to the police or something and be done with it..

Hi Blahidos,

Reporting this to police will only be wasting your time, police rarely understand what is going on and are very reluctant to bother trying to investigate.

You could however report as many details as you can about the scammer at www.scamwarners.com by doing so you may well prevent others from being scammed.

Some information to help you to know what and how to post can be viewed by Clicking Here

There is also some good information on how to spot a romance scammer that you should read by Clicking Here

Hello,

I also recently joined one of those online dating sites and I have been in contact with this very same person. She even sent me the exact same email that was sent to you. I did a search of her name just to make sure that I wasn't being scammed. Now, seeing that you received the EXACT same email, we are most likely being scammed. The best thing to do would probably just end all contact with this particular person.
