Dear Miss Young:
I'm from Chile, and surfing through the web I've
found your website, just let me tell you, I believe you're doing a great job,
making public these stories of scammers, and acting as a way to alert people
about this situation.
The reason for this message is that I believe I was about to become a victim
of fraud, or something worse.
This is the story: Yesterday, Friday June 18th, I was checking my Tagged
profile ( Tagged is a social networking site, like Facebook), when I received
this "lovely" message, from a "girl" called miss Glory Emmedy:
"My daerest heart my name is miss
glory emmedy i came across your lovely
profile here at tagged i became
very much interested in you,
because i saw something uniqueness
in you and i need the true love of my life
please reply me in my private
for me to give u my photo for
you to know me better in life and for
us to come togather as a divine union"
||As you can see, her English is quite bad.
So, I decided to make my own "Intelligence Job" and started to search by
myself, when I discovered that, this is one of many scams.
Dear Glory: I received your message through Tagged, well it's nice to meet
you, thanks for your comments, well i'd really like to see a picture of you.
Hope you send it asap.

Of course, there is a lot of strange things here
1. - 23 years old and living in a church Orphanage home? In my country, when
you turn 18, you must leave inmediatly and take care of your own life, by
2.-"Single and never married", if you're single, there is a chance you've
never been married (sounds stupid but that's the way it is)
3.- "Due to this all the members of my family was Murdered in a cold Blood and
our family house was set blazed.I was Lucky and escaped death because i was in
bordering when this deadly incident took place" If you are "in bordering", how
do you know what really happened ? Once again, her English is bad.
4.- How can you love someone you haven't even seen or met from your "innermost
-Well, of course, I have decided not to answer any other incoming message, and
delete any of those, if they come again into my Inbox. Fortunately, I haven't
sent, and I will not send any money to no one. But the bad thing is, I can't
go to the Chilean Police, because their system is "No Crime, No Investigation,
Please Miss Young, I kindly request to include this story in your website, as
an alert to everybody, specially lonely men like me. I haven't been affected

Hoping you can include this story, and again, congratulations for your good
Thanks in Advance
