Have another spammer

I would like to report Gracious, signed Abel, to you. I heard from him, on December 5th thru Singles Seeking on Lutherans Online. Fortunately, my gut told me, to check with Single Mingle first,as I have been reading about other spammers. Well, tonight, a Lou Ann got the exact same message that I did, from Gracious..signed Abel. Will repost his letter to me below.

How are you doing? I hope your day is going as planned? I never thought I'd try online dating, but here I am-and I'm so glad I found your profile,I came across your profile on Lutherans Online singles seeking, and I like your favorite verse, as a matter of fact that is one of my favorites too,-1 Thessalonians 5:18--in everything give thanks, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.

I live in Chicago and work as a construction engineer, you also have a beautiful career and your profile states that you work in the medical field, I admire people in your field because they are Angels sent by God to care for the sick, I'm a Christian Widower whose trust is in the Lord and I have been a widower for quite a long time now. I'm sorry to hear that your hubby recently passed away.I pray that the Lord will always grant you a heart to bear the loss, I enjoy both outdoor and indoor activities, and we share so many interest in common, like camping,collectibles,movies,traveling and cooking is my favorite, What kind of movies do you like? I love romance,comedy,sci-fi,and christian fictions.

I will stop right here,if you want,email me back and let's get to know each other and trust in the Lord to direct our steps, here is my email-nokinglikegod at hotmail dot com, you can respond with your email if you think you are ready for a new experience,I will definitely write back.

Looking forward to hearing back from you and have a wonderful weekend.

Abel

I did email him back, to ask him to post a picture. No response. Then when Another Person wrote her message on Single Mingle, I knew my gut was right. So I think, two people can't be wrong, and I wanted to report him. Thank you for your attention, to this ever growing problem. And thank you also for providing a message board, support team, for everyone.

Sincerely,
HuskerFan4

I emailed with this man for months. Same story exacally. He is a snake and has been doing this for a long time, taking advantage of many. BEWARE! He has used many names but generally the same story. And he is good so please beware. I would pay money for him to be taken down. Arrested would be even bettter.

I think I have a spammer for the very reasonnhe is 60 and says he is interested in me. I am 70. I got a fake response a few months ago. It was easy to tell because he spoke poor English.
Are these guys using legitimate members profiles? He says he is WELS.

i would like to report friendship, whose profile is still up, as spam. he signs his name john. Reasons-1) poor grammar and spelling 2) obvious cut and paste of a paragraph-font was smaller and 3) all the similarities to other spammers i have read about here. There was another one stones a month or so ago.. after receiving 2nd email with a picture I never heard again from them.
Please remove friendship.
Thank you!
Kathy
