English Club's social network
Have you ever gotten a message like this?
How is everything with you,I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately.I have something very vital to disclose to you,but I found it difficult to express myself here,since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( here the spammer lists some email address or website) for the full details.
Have a nice day.
fake name= SPAMMER.
It is more likely if you are a brand new member and don't know what to expect.
*****HOW TO SPOT A SPAMMER*****
They are very friendly and just saw your profile,
but say they must write you immediately.
They are usually new and have few or no friends.
They have something very VITAL, IMPORTANT, OR CONFIDENTIAL that they must tell you.
They can't tell you here on this public site (it must be in private).
They request that you contact them for the complete details.
They give you an email or website where you can reach them.
They infect your computer or try to take money from you by pretending to be a friend :-(
They may tell you a very sad story where they need your help.
They offer to show you a photo of themselves.
They need you to send them a little money.
These are never true !!
