Sounds counter-productive I know but there's a weird wisdom to it. I don't actually know how anyone can entertain it without being of laissez faire spirit. I recently attracted the attention of not just one, but TWO online scammers leaving me a bit dazed and confused.
I get an email from "Mark Williams" who writes, "Really it is disturbing to come on this dating site to see how much people appreciate love, but yet We have to go the extra mile to get this great status. Forgive my manners, i am Mark Williams, an independent contractor of international repute." What is that? A public service announcement? A bit rich to start with that line don't you think?
He continues, "I deal basically with oil platforms ranging from Africa to middle east and far east Asia and i also supply building materials to construction companies and also to my customers overseas. But really i am hanging the hat next year, i think after getting all the wealth in pursuit, i have come to realise that we are nothing without a partner, someone who would stand by me no matter the situation. A woman who can hold her own when it comes to matters of the heart,lol."
Ah, I get it. You got damn wealthy not wasting your dollars on being a subscriber. Sure, scrimping and saving works. I feel the grooming even before I get to the lol.
At least the second guy from yet another website, "Daniel" opens with an attempt at l'amour, "In you I see a woman with an open heart". Paragraph break equals pause for effect.
I put the trashcan down after puking, wipe my face and read on, "Now I can tell you a little about myself.... I was born in California but raised in Belgium with the help of my grand mom. I was 4 years old when I moved to Belgium due to my mother's illness (Cancer of the Breast). I was with my grand mom until the age of 19 when I moved back to California . My dad was a business tycoon, he travel a lot on business trips but I lost him when I was 27 years old and my mom died earlier before him.I am a Captain in the Us Army and one of the commander of Regimental Combat Team 6 in PAKTIKA PROVINCE, Afghanistan.I have been in Afghanistan for over 12 months but will soon be home very soon."
I think, I don't know what to say to that Daniel, that is one checkered past, mate. No wonder you fuqed off and joined the army to try to get yourself shot, killed or maimed. You were probably abused too right? Why, next thing you know you'll be telling me to wire you money in exchange for the check you're sending me due to some banking issue. Yes, no? It doesn't get that far, I block the emails and inform the websites. No response from either.
But eerily, I actually see a button for "police inquiries". Oh, Tina you were so right when you wailed, "woo-oo-oo What's Love Got To Do With It?". Not much, I guess.
