Hi, i gone through your profile and its little bit upset but i m happy that u r real woman looking for friends. aS i m here for longtime but never met true lady..lots of scammers here .men and woman both.. i will be happy if u consider me as ur friend.

Well, this is all very cute, but his profile says he's a youngster from Delhi, and I thought Indians in Delhi speak very good English, but the text is ladspeak - or is it?
My character is 45, and a scammer would be a 50 yo engineer.

So our sticky says if you're not sure, drop him. But how? Should I ignore him or did he earn a polite "I'm sorry?"

I couldn't say for sure based on that writing.

Typically, when in doubt, I just respond with a polite "Thanks, but I'm looking for someone closer to home." Half the time if it's a scammer he will persist anyway, and once I'm sure, he's fair game.

I always write the same thing. "I'm only looking to meet fellow australians"

Then if I get the age, distance doesn't matter yada yada yada, it's game on Moles!

was the dating site 4ppl.com? And while most Indians I've dealt with have an excellent command of english, I did have a scammer from Mumbai who's english was appaling. I haven't heard from him since I implicated him in my character's murder! Smile

@chrysis: I can't use the "from my own country only" this time, as my profile had to give a reason why an Austrian widow would write in English, i.e. "I want to meet friends from all over the world". And yes, I'm using 4ppl which is painfully slow. Evil or Very Mad
However, I followed the advice to say "I feel more comfortable with friends my age" and sure enough he said "age doesn't matter" and "I'll make you happy". So he is fair game. Now I'm curious if he will prove to be just a beggar or a scammer.

If he's just a beggar, he shouldn't be baited.

What kind of picture is he using? Where is he claim he is from?

Generally, when looking for romance scammers, it's best not to waste your time on those who are admitting they are young African men. They will have very few victims anyway.

Focus on the ones claiming to be mature white men from the US or Europe--with those, it is easy to be certain they are scammers, and they tend to be much more successful.

Of course. I haven't figured it out yet.
As I said in the OP, he says he is from Delhi, and his pic is kind of creepy. He might just be a slimeball.
OTOH, I haven't received any typical messages like I know them from ScamWarners, just one older guy from the Netherlands, but he seems to be intro pr0n puke so no scammer. I'll give it time, sooner or later they will bite.

You could always write "looking for people to help me improve my english, from Austria only".

Besides we, Austr(al)ians have to stick together Smile

Jeannette,

I still have an old 4ppl account with around half a dozen clear lad responses that I am willing to hand over to you. The responses are old, but the profiles are still active--you can pick those up, and just contact them now, saying something along the lines of "I was in a relationship when you contacted me, but that recently ended, are you still interested?"

@ Dorothy and Chrysis:
Thanks for the generous offer, I'd be grateful for any hand-me-down lads.

Edit:
Okay, Delhi boy is genuine, he just described in detail how a romance scam works.

OTOH, today I found a nice crop of lads in my inbox. Perhaps my favourite one is "Miss Sophia" who yesterday tried a romance/orphan/trunk box scam on me, and when I replied "Thank you, I am not a lesbian" she came back as a man ("age doesn't matter"), still using his "Miss Sophia" profile. Laughing

@ Jeanette

They're the best ones! Go get 'em girlfriend! My one and only safari was a similar deal. with luck you can get 'em to do some serious hoop jumping.

With luck it'll be someone as dumb as frannypoo was. Wink

Hi, Chrysis and Dorothy!
Up till now my lads are all juvenile, i.e. not the typical "engineer on a business trip to Nigeria" or "eleven star general wanting to quit" I wanted to have a go at.
So if your offer of surplus love lads still stands, could you send them over, please?

@ Chrysis: It's that time of the year ... a naked Christmas tree looms at the horizon. I guess they are going kamikaze now.

Edit: Typo

Thanks, Chrysis and Dorothy!
The day before yesterday finally a military scammer landed in my account, I invited him to send me an email - I want his email address and script to add to ScamWarners. Unfortunately, yesterday I was sick, and I am not too well, today, so no baiting until tonight.
Would you like the details of my 4ppl account?

Wow - did you all burn your love lads over the weekend? They are all piling onto my character!
And I got another one from my target group, an engineer, complete with script and addy (can't be bothered to deal with the juvenile ones for now), plus an interesting one with a pic from some gay site. Always wanted to convert a gay man!
