I received a lot of friendly request recently, asking me to write to them at their "personal email".

Is this some sort of trick or something?

Probably.

They PM me with those massage through DDO, ask me to reply them at their email.

I think I should keep silence for security purpose, any advises?

Yeah, you have to be safe on this site. Contact airmax if you need to.

Yeah. It's love spam. I've been noticing it a lot more recently. You should report the members.

There is a love spam thread if you'd like to see examples. http://www.debate.org...

The objective is to get money from the mark, usually under the pretense she is in some horrible situation that only some quick bucks will allow her to escape.

Love spam used to be quite frequent, but it went away for a while before it's recent return. These are sometimes called "Nigeria scams" because many of them originated in Nigeria. They are thoroughly international these days. I tend to reply, "So how are things in Nigeria?"

Report it to AirMax so he can delete the account.

apparently someone already reported that one (pretty quick given that the PM was just days ago).

thanks a lot for the advice
