It sure sounds like a romance scam but I haven't seen one of these before. It came with a picture attached of a pretty blond gril in front of a building I can't identify, probably a stolen vacation picture. Has anyone seen anything like this before? Originating IP seems to be from Mexico, and the email came from Yahoo India...

Subject: Can you share a second with me? I need a fresh point of view and advice

Message:
How do you do today. I wish my letter to make you smile. I'm not sure where I found you. perhaps I found you at some social network or dating site... I forgot because that happend long time ago. But after all I'm pleased that now I can talk to you. it is my belief that it's interesting to talk to someone with someone from different country. Maybe we could share at least a few letters and get to know each other better? perchance we could start a new friendship Let's see how it works. By the way where do you live? I live in capital of Poland. It's name is Warsawa. I I'm interested in learning new people to learn new people and I'm open for talk and for a new friend. And what about you? Do you feel the same way I'd appreciate a little of your time for me. at present I decide on new country for my vacation. Could you tell me more about your country? Customs and traditions? I would like any information. I want to thank you in advance. I want to go on
vacation for a long period of time.
Sorry I was not offered. My name is Maja. Could you introduce yourself? I hope I didn't bother you much I'll be glad if you write me soon.. as you remember I'm willing to chat with you. Maja Casey.

Looks like a variation on one of several scripts.

Next few emails will have 'her' quickly growing in admiration and then falling in 'love' with you and eventually asking if you will pay for her ticket over to where you are.

And so on.

And yes, I read the IP as Mexico.

It's too bad I'm so busy with work, I'm a newbie but would love to have a go at this one. If anyone feels like helping her plan (and finance) her 'long' vacation, feel free to do so. PM if you'd like to have the original email forwarded to you.
