I am a purposeful girl, strong in spirit...


I noticed 2 new profiles this week with IDENTICAL introductions. This happens a few times a month. Running the opening line through a search, it revealed the same introduction for women on Russian (and Ukraine) marriage sites. This has been going on for years.

The photos on the copycat sites didn't look Russian, nor did they claim the member was in Europe. Typically, they appeared to be home-grown from cities in America.

My best guess is the profiles on Russian sites were created real marriage brokers and the copycat profiles were created African scammers.

Guys... if you receive a message or read an introduction and it contains "I am a purposeful girl, strong in spirit..." consider it 100% BS

@chatillion - consider it 110% bs. I get a great kick out of stringing these (add your own description). I takes all of 2 emails to know what they are. I was "offered" 4 million Us dollars; inheritance money from mon and Yankee dad being held in Ukraine. What a laugh.

I've reported these fraudulent profiles clearly showing examples of the other ones they have copied, yet administration hasn't removed them.

Hey guys...whar percentage of the profiles on this site are actually real women looking for relationships??? I would say 20%.....heck even the ones purported to be from my city are BS...believe it or not at one time many years ago Chinese FriendFinder was legit. I met a nice girl from Shanghai who happened to be living mere blocks away from me. Now this was years ago, unfortunately not a legit site anylonger...

Anyone who has been on the internet for more than a week or so and can't spot a scammer, fake or robot needs to delete and block themselves from using it! Most are robots, or "BOTS", the're not even people!
Also, when u report someone as such do u really think some person ever sees it! It's just another app that updates every 48 hours or so, probably not that often, and deletes that user, then they change one character in their handle and log back on.
The first scammer was a snake in the garden.....think about it?!?!?

I receive email for all the profiles I've reported and depending on the offense, they describe what transpired and signed it with a name. So yes, I think a human actually looked at my report.

Repeat offenders return all the time with similar names and they get bounced out again when reported.

I have never seen that kind of report!
I quit reporting long ago, I just ignore them and move on!

ltr, I enjoy knocking them out... business has been slow lately with only a few each week. On another site I frequent, it's often 5 per day!

Websites say many things.... some jump and some inquire, some should take care to consider many things, before they fall for simple lines.

Over the years... the people who "blog" here... and get to know people and people get to know them, is far more interesting than... "crafted lines" that act and function like a "baited hook', trying to catch a fish.
