Just got this in my friend requests:

I am 100% sure this is a spambot, since the account was created only an hour ago and it types like a spambot.
In light of this foreshadowment of an impending spam sh*tstorm, I feel that I should remind people about basic Internet safety:
- If it claims to be a female with a love interest in you, it is a 23-year old virgin male living in a basement who wants your money.
- Don't try emailing strange women with Indian Yahoo email addresses.
- No, she isn't going to show you a nude photo. She will, however, give you malware, so make sure you have up-to-date antivirus!
- If you don't have antivirus, Microsoft Security Essentials is free, and it works just as good as any other antivirus app.
- Above all else, DON'T CLICK ANY SUSPISCIOUS LINKS FROM PMs FROM PEOPLE YOU DON'T KNOW, AND DON'T EMAIL THEM, EITHER!

Sorry if this is seen as backseat moderation, I just don't want people trying to email the address in the photo. That being said, anyone who tries to e-mail it after reading this is an idiot, and assumes full responsibility for consequences arising from said pursuit of said stupidity. You have been warned.

My God, you're right! I never realized! Thank you so much, drhead!
