I’m a single rich man.

This online suitor just contacted me:

I am a single rich man but have been single for a long time …I really feel very lonely, so now I am seeking a great woman who can give me true love. I got the same name on
http://alturl.com/ukbw4 – . It is a special place for serious dating, so I spend most of my on-line time there. If you are interested, add me.I hope your day went well and I hope to hear from you soon.

I wrote him back and asked him why he thought he needed to start out his profile by telling everyone he is “rich.”  Shouldn’t he want someone to love him for him and not for his wealth?  Let’s see if he writes back.

Update on Jan 28: Never heard from him.  Upon further investigation, saw that “he” never read my email and his profile is deleted.  Thinking it was a scam.

One thought on “I’m a single rich man.

  1. Yes, this is a West African scammer. Thank goodness you didn`t get messed up with him.

    I am a long-time anti-scam activist and member of scamsurvivors.com. This criminal contacted me today with the identical story. He is also trying to promote a dating site … one that may come complete with keyloggers to pick up passwords and other sensitive information. If you run across this character, delete him … do NOT click on anything.
