We have written about Internet dating scams before, but this online dating scam is new – or at least coming around again. Our example of this Internet dating scam involves a “woman”, WonderfulHumma from Las Vegas, who is shilling for her friend “Talented Roy” (talentedroy60@aol.com). “Good Morning Friend,” the scam beings, “This may sound cliche or weird.” And indeed it does…if an email on an Internet dating site sounds weird, it probably is. Stay away.

Here is the full text of our example:


TAKE A LEAP OF FAITH

Hello Friend,

Good Morning Friend, This may sound cliche or weird but I hope you would take a leap of faith, who knows it might blossom to something special. I would like to match-make you and my friend Mr Roy Living in your city in COLORADO, A happy, warm and loving man with a good sense of humor and a strong believer in living positive. He is well traveled, reasonably articulate, fit, active, in-denial about aging, definitely don’t act his age. I told him about you and showed him your profile. He is opened to a nice conversation if that clicks to you. You can e mail him (TALENTEDROY60 AT AOL DOT COM).it easier. Best wishes, Mr ROY does not believe on Internet dating and he is a widower, i will delete my profile on this website because i already found my dream man on here and there is no reason to continue being on this website ,Just contact ROY directly at the email above and i bet that you will never regret .

One thought on “New Online Dating Scam – I’m Contacting You for a Friend

  1. People fall for this?
    First, if he does not believe in online dating, why would he want an email from a person he does not know?
    Second, scammers can not spell or understand basic grammar. I dont know why, you would think they would hire a translator.
    “If that clicks to you”. Should be the one red flag you catch, even if you miss the others.
