    How do you know it was spammed through this site and not from one of the internet retailers?

    I Googled "hariattahester". She's all over the internet with the same proposition to others. She's probably a very nice lady from Nigeria and isn't interested in anything but a loving relationship...good luck!

    I know...just playing along. I get junk emails almost everyday from some financial wizard who has a million dollars for me. The sad thing is some people fall for it.

    If you guys had any idea how many people fall for this crap, you would be amazed. I was a detective for 21 yrs. in the smaller city I worked I’ll be I handled a dozen girlfriend and boyfriend scams. The most recent victim I had worked at a credit union. She took $66K out of the vault and sent it to an address in South Dakota. The person there sent it overseas. That was after she went through every available dollar of credit her and her husband had. This guy, who she met in Facebook was going to take her away from her drab existence. It was sad and pathetic.

    I also received an email from the lovely Hariatta from the U.N. Clearly my reputation as an international man of intrigue has gone to high places. If you would like to know my secret to success simply send me 50% of your tobacco cellar. Don't worry or delay, Hariatta can vouch for me.

    No soap here, either. But unless she represents some obscure or non-existent organization that thinks I am the heir to a $25 Million inheritance, from a distant uncle and late Prince in Nigeria, forget about it.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Most of my hot offers get filtered into folders that I look at once a month and end up deleting in a large batch. My fear is that a real one from Publisher's Clearing House will show up!! Or a call from Dialing for Dollars.

    I got spam using the email address of my cousin. Digital devices and all digital communications are rife with hacking and misuse of every kind. It used to be young boys in basements, but now there is a whole "professional class" of people who farm the web and social media for marks.
