You may have seen these posts (below) in your comments box or Soup Mail. It's a scam originating from Senegal. We delete the accounts when we are aware of them. Obviously, never reply to these types of requests. Never reply to ANY requests for your email address or other information. It's ALWAYS a scam.

"Hello dear, my name is Rebbecca, i came across your profile now on this Site . So I decided to stop by an let you know that I really want to have a good friendship with you. Beside i have something special i want to discuses with you, but I find it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site. I will be very happy, If you can get back to me, through my e-mail.(rebbecca_goodluck@yahoo.com) So we can get to know each other better,and i well give you my pictures and also tell you more about me OK, you can contact me through my e-mail id Is, (rebbecca_goodluck@yahoo.com) Regard, Rebbecca"




Thank you Soupers for policing the Soup!!!

I have always spoken to and writen the folks I have met a long time, usually over a year. Before I came to this site I was a gamer for years in a [mudd] role playing, well in about 2001 I went cross country and back through the Canadian Rockies by train and stayed with fellow game players. It was a wonderful trip, everyone was just what & who they said they were.

Always check and see if they have an account and have entered some poems..I always tell them that I will be happy to share soup mails..Only then after a long time of soup mailing back and forth have I offered email addresses but even then there is a chance that all won't work out..Sara

Just click on that icon that looks like an eye in the upper right corner of "her"/"their" comment box.
Date: 10/8/2012 8:44:00 AM
I'm soooo glad that my intuition was correct. Now I don't feel so bad about sending "her" an email address that will infect "her" computer with a virus.
