Message #1 Posted by Thibaut on 7 Apr 2005, 10:13 a.m.

This is what I got in my mail... Frankly speaking its prettier than the common 419 scams !

Hi, Thomas

I think we had correspondence a long time ago if it was not you I am sorry. If it was I could not answer you because my Mozilla mail manager was down for a long time and I could not fix it only with my friend's help I got the emails address out for me ..:) I hope it was whom we were corresponded with you are still interested, as I am, though I realize much time has passed since then... I really don't know where to start .... Maybe you could tell me a little about yourself since I lost our early letters, your appearance,age , hobbies, and are you still in the search? If it was you I wrote to and you are interested to get to know me better, I have a profile at :

Don't really know what else to say for now I hope this is the right address

Let me know if you are interested, And I hope you won't run when you see my picture :-)

Yourth faithfully, Marina B.

That's nothing new, those who have used any of the more popular "singles" websites have probably seen it before. Take a look at ... and

lately I have started getting it from girls that either, live in, or claim they work in, Nigeria.
