Yesterday I got a message from someone named Rowland. He was browsing over here and wanted more info and a message back, etc. Here's the thing ... he didn't even have a profile! He says he's tired of being lonely and wants a long-term relationship that leads to marriage if possible. OK ~ kind of freaky. I told him I don't message anybody back who doesn't have a profile. Today I got a message back from him. The very first thing in his message is his personal email address. He did fill out a profile ( it's really kind of out there, but...) but he tells me that he doesn't get on here much so he wants to keep contact through email. I don't know ~ something just doesn't sound right with this picture. He said if I email him, then he'll provide a picture. I don't even want him contacting me! Am I just overreacting??
No you aren't over reacting because yesterday I also got a message from Rowland. I thought it was odd and suspicious that he didn't have a profile so after reading his message, I hit the delete button. Now I'm going to vent a little. I got on this site to try to meet some new friends. Well the first two men who contacted me just didn't appeal to me. The next 4 (yes 4!!!!!) have sounded suspicious. One of them I ended up writing to a few times but I've decided not to continue that. Too many things that don't sound right. That would be lord4u (signs his messages as Jonas). I've had it with these jerks who think they can take advantage of unsuspecting women. And on the internet, it's really easy to misrepresent yourself. The thing that ticks me off about Jonas is that he has claimed to believe in honesty but I don't think he's been honest with me. He says he's from Canon City, CO but there's no record of anyone by that name there. I checked him out on some scammers websites but his name didn't turn up. If he and this Rowland character are really scammers, shame on both of them for getting on a Christian website. O.k. I'm done.....just had to get that out of my system.
perhaps we should have a "permanent" fishy board....I had the same email from Rowland last weekend and posted it on the other chat string....I couldn't find his profile at first but searched by his name and found him.... The board must be vigilant as a "match" email received earlier tonight is not available
Welcome to the boards to the newbies. There have been these "fishy" guys on here off and on for a while now. They have infiltrated more than one dating site I am sure. If they sound too good to be true...they probably are and want money.
