Initially, this wouldn't seem altogether unusual, who can predict when people decide to date, email you, not email you, so on. One voice won't produce a whisper, but many can roar with might! Said he couldn't access the money in his own account from Africa.But it's too easy to manipulate the database they use. Or, not for nothing, we can always get together, drive by their house and egg it. After I mentioned that I knew about the Nigerian scams, I never heard from him again.
Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc. I originally did it because I live in a small town and am not into the bar scene and, basically I'm a very shy person.
Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing... I, too, have had money I couldn't get back from and had a couple people get real interested in me when it was time to renew with and POOF! This has been very enlightening and the more I think about it, it really hacks me off!
He wanted to meet me so badly that he asked me to front him some money until he got back to the states and would reimburse me. But he was ready to "pack up all his things in Massachusettes" and move close to me to be married to me soon. Maybe this guy took ownership of the account that I saw and liked on Match???
The picture showed a white guy, but in talking to him on the phone (from Africa no less), he sounded like a foreigner.
Well honestly, i think we that are registered under singles sites, have gotten "Im interesteds" or "winks" from someone and when we show interest we never hear from em.i know im not alone on this.
Karina My two cent's worth is this: I did use Yah Pers more than a few times, and it did seem that JUST after I cancelled the subscription the matches were different (ie, more than a few profiles I'd never seen) and I did get several emails/winks. He said he was from New York but was in Africa for his work. Well he sent me flowers for my birthday and then the next day asked me for bank account info so one of his "clients" could pay him.
Using this information and identifyng the right profiles, you can "bait" people into signing up again just to answer an email or two. On his profile, it said he was divorced and that he liked a career in helping people with disabilities. But when we started IM'ing each other, he said he was widowed.
His career was self-employed in marketing and he was in Africa right at the moment.
I refuse to talk to anyone out of the state of Indiana now that I cannot comfortable drive the distance to meet him. People supposedly sending winks but really having no interest in contacting me.
And yes, I have had people "interested" in me only to have them suddenly quit talking to me after about 2-3 replys. I've found 2 sites that I trust, here at Po F, and There was a girl that was trying to scam money out of people that I met here on Po F, and when I didn't give any to her, somehow, she hacked my profile and now it is totally un-useable....
