Looks like someone fell for a love lad and just asked for advice there. I see you've already posted something about it there.
I don't see how this isn't spam based. The posting itself isn't a scam; it only asks for advice, not money or bank accounts. I'm guessing the original message from the "fiancé" was indeed spam, either through email or a dating site.
Of course, I just woke up and may have missed something - in that case feel free to ignore me.

i would have to agree with foo, looks like the person posting has fallen for a R scam themself and is under the believe that what they are doing is right. Have you contacted the poster? perhaps someone from scamwarners should do so. If our suspicions are correct.

Well, the question appears to have been deleted in the meantime, so that's kind of sorted itself out.

I joined to illuminate a possible new strategy in 914 scams stemming from a seemingly innocuous Yahoo Answer's question. I'm too illiterate to understand how to reply to replys. (My only condolence is I'm a Mac user and we don't have to be literate.)
I'm open to email to resolve my reply issues. I worked on computers before solid state, when: and, nor, not gates were a function of grid bias. When computers were Analog because we used gang-tuned servos and resolvers. Digital wasn't born yet. Your stylus's and punch cards were boring so I transitioned to Aircrew, before that was taken over by the very computers I was trying to escape. So I need all the help I can get. Thanks

I don't know about it's relation to 419.. but yahoo answers is often used for a certain type of marketing. You pose a question and answer it yourself under another account, usually in a manner that makes you money.. I'm sure it can be used for advance fee fraud but it is much harder to use in place of what is already done.
I'm sure that sounds like I support 419, WHICH I DO NOT. I'm just stating it from their POV.
