A group to discuss about anything under the sun, not necessarily related to writing.
I recently got a mail from someone expressing interest in me and inviting me to correspond with her via email.
I was somewhat suspicious, because she said she had read my profile, and I don’t have that much information on my profile that would enable someone to decide whether they should like me or not.
Anyway, I may be wrong – but if anyone else has received a similar email, then they should beware.
I got the same email and i have copied and sent it in a report to Admin.
Lade, aint you female?
I am o! Which makes the mailer either bisexual or dubious. I go with dubious.
Me sentiments exactly.
Got the same mail, and smelt a rat. The fellow must think they are dealing with a gullible bunch, and jsut in case you(scammer) decide to join this discussion, i am so not gay, ok!
Thanks to Lade and Tola that first brought this to our notice. That poster Jenna, has been marked as a scammer and will soon be deleted. We try to protect your privacy on this website and will never give out your details. But please also beware of unsolicited requests for friendship or personal details. Thank you.
Another user baited by replying the initial message and this was the response from Jenna.
My Dearest One ,

I want to find out if it’s possible for you to deal with individual as to investment.

I would like to use this opportunity to introduce myself to you.

Lololol! What an idiot! Can someone please inform him/her what NaijaStories is all about? And the class of people on this site? Maybe he/she didn’t read the review that this is a social site with a difference – ‘site of intellectuals by intellectuals for intellectuals’ translated ‘we are not hungry, gullible desperados’.
lol @ Lade and Elly’s comments. Received the same mail. I majorly am investigative by nature so I checked out avenues online to ‘locate’ this individual but got nothing. (S)he does not even have a profile here. I also wondered what was on my profile, so I checked and decided it was not enough for me to want to contact me. I was totally put off by the suggestive nature of the message, and as I am not gay, I go with dubious as well. Looks like dubious was the intent after all
(S)he might have thought being suggestive would grant them easy access. lol Do people still fall for them schemes anymore?
Anyone who falls for such unimaginative ‘olodo’ scheme totally deserves to be scammed.
More concerned for the younger folks here. A more creative scam might work a little more. But anyone who’s been on the internet for a while ought to know all these. Everyone be very careful.
More and more mediocre scammers keep springing up.
wow, i didnt get such message sha, but i surely would not have fallen for that.
How come I didn’t get a message?! Lol
