I Saw Your Post On http://www.cruisersforum.com.....
Question? - How do you think they got your "e-mail account" address from your presence on CF forum?

- - As I am sure you already - and anybody else online - knows there is a 99.99999999999999999999% chance that the person sending the e-mail is neither a virgin nor even female. Like the Nigerian scams, the female companion scams are prolific and usually use the standard random generated email address generators.
- - This one is only interesting because of that reference to the CF Forum. Is that true or did you make this up to spice up the thread line?
- - If it is true then how did they get your e-mail address from CF Forum? That is a security issue that maybe a Moderator can address . . .

Re: Single Sailors Seeking Soul Mate Group

I'm sure they did search cruisersforum for the email address. The scams seem to be getting more intricate and specific. Last week one of my friends had an email sent to her from a person who said he was representing a modeling agency and had found her addresss on the model mayhem site. He said they wanted her to be the face of their new skin care line and would pay her $450 for the photoshoot -- all they needed was her name, address, telephone number, etc. to send her the check.

What invariably follows is that they will say something like, we need you to pay the photographer, so I'm going to actually write you a check for $1450, just deposit it and wire the cash on over to the photographer or whatnot. Then their check bounces, which leaves your account in the negative.

However, these scams are easily detected as they usually have horrible grammar and are offering something that seems too good to be true.
