Dating 101: Online Scams – all the same?
She writes she as been inundated by phony emails like this one from Faux Fred. A quick study, she says spammers and scammers all do the same things. The first clue is the plethora of choppy, nonsensical, sentences in broken English. Spelling and punctuation errors are rampant. Finally, scammers always want to get off the dating site and urge contact via email – spelled out to go un-noticed by the Match.com police.
Can you spot the scam artist bait?

I must confess your profile pix and the way your carefully outlined your profile out is another thing that has given me the boost to want to talk to you and perhaps meet with you,few things you should know about me…My names are Fred Antonio…I have been on match.com for few days now and have been reading your profile over and over again. And i think we have some things in Common. I am a single Dad for 7years now, I am 60 years old… I am young at heart with fun, dreams and a big heart… as easy to get along with as you’ll find.
I always try to bring mindfulness and awareness to my existence,i enjoy having fun moment, skiing and golfing.swimming is what i do for my daily exercise when it’s warm.
Intelligence is definitely attractive, but being TOO serious about everything is a TURN OFF. I am looking for someone intelligent, stubborn, sarcastic, funny, quirky, maybe a little odd in her own special way lol with a great sense of humor and a glass half full philosophy on life.
