Okay, so am I the only one that gets PMs asking me to email them so they can tell me about themselves?

I get like one a week and its starting to bug me...

Why do these people keep coming here?

Anyone have any answers to these strange phenomena?

The latest person is from Rwanda?...

Lovespamming. It's happening a lot by the same user. Report them.

This could be solved if we said you needed, say, a debate to message people.

They want to gain your trust so that they can eventually get your information and potentially ask you for money...

Btw CP, I recently inherited millions of dollars but I need $10K to cover lawyer and processing fees, if you send me it I'll send back 50K to you as a reward? All you have to do is wire me the 10K and you'll make 50K!!

Kinda like that, but in this context the goal is also to gain the persons trust to make it easier. So the love spammer pretend to me young women looking for husbands and such...

Yeah, they will send you fake pics of themselves, then say that they have money that they need to get to america. So long story short, they ask for you bank account and promise you a pecentage of the cash.

That's pathetic. I think I got one of those once. They were dying and wanted a trust worthy person to pass their millions to because they sadly didn't have an heir. Haha... it's sad.

I once won a $100,000 in a sweepstakes that I don't even remember playing : )

Except that they needed me to send them a check for $1,000 to cover the taxes. I didn't have it so they were unable to release it to me : (

Sign of a scam. Why not just take the 1K from the 100K and be done with it?
