Also you need to be a bit careful, as some like this might not be Scam, but one with genuine intention. Notwithstanding this name gift is some how sound familiar in this.
Is it a member here? give me his/her user name used so that I keep it in our watch list.
Below is obvious scam letters:

Hello Perfect,
I am pretty sure it is a scam

During the time I've been active on the internet I have gotten dozens of letters of this type.  I am not always sure whether thist were scam letters or maybe one or two really from african girls who are hoping to get a husband from Europe enabling them to relocate to Europe.  You know a lot of Africans obviously wish to relocate to Europe.

But expecially one sentence I literally have read in many of those mails
"Remember that distance,age or colour does not matter in a reall relationship but love matters alot"
Its that same sentence in most of those emails that makes me believe the mail has been produced by a professional scammer.   Otherwise, how can it happen that all these girls, who are desperately looking for a husband, all use  that same sentence in their contact mails. . . .  ???

I at present havent found any of these mails in my box so I am sorry for not being able to post an similar example.  I promise You to post another typical scam mail from west Africa soon.

Mike

Mike I agree with you abit, just want him to  always use common sense as you can not easily know for sure  between them, unless you follow them a bit.
See the one I just started below:

You can just follow him/her up a bit, by playing with him/her to get know better.
