I've visited this site a few times before, and always wondered if I'd ever get scammed. I joined a site called okcupid today, and within minutes had an email which read: "Hello,i saw your profile on here it caught my attention and i gt attracted,i would like to know you more better,to talk more hit me up on my [email protected] to hear back from you.i care".

I don't quite know what to do, so I was hoping that maybe someone could take care of this for me.

I will say that the profile that this email leads to on the site looks legite, which again is why I'm wondering if someone could take a look into this for me. http://www.okcupid.com/profile/Ginassearching1.

Thanks

Hello fortunateson84, and welcome to eater.

The info we have right now on this one is very small, so we can't really be sure. Personally, I'm leaning to this being a scammer.
Goodlooking girl on profile picture, showing a bit flesh. - check.
Generical message that doesn't say anything about you or your profile - check.
Wanting to chat away from the dating site, by using email, already in the first PM - check.


My opinion: stay away. If you want we can do a careful bait and see where it goes to, but if I had to bet money on it, my money would be on the option this is a scammer.

Looks like a charity and/or inheritance scammer, based on the chat quoted in that thread.

If you're reading here regularly, your odds of getting scammed will go down. Wink
