Red Flags,  THIS is Why I'm Single!,  Uncategorized

Nigerians Strike Again!

It’s Friday and I’m soooooo ready for the weekend to begin.  As you can see from the number of posts this week I either (1) felt guilty for going almost a week without doing anything last time or (2) the hangovers are coming faster and faster.

This my dears, will be brief and while it is not my intent to offend anyone who may be, is related to, dated one or is currently working on a scam to take all of your money if you send them your credit card information for a great deal BUT, Nigerians and the Internet are notoriously annoying!

I mean really.  It doesn’t matter how good your e-mail Spam filter is, there’s always one message that squeezes through and the giveaway for me is normally some funky sender address, poor spelling or someone saying “cos” instead of “because”.  Sorry to my Canadian peeps, I know this is your phrase as well.

With that being said (and I wish I could have copied the image), here’s the message I received from someone on Facebook this morning with the last name of Friday.  Yeah, I’m using the actual last name because if you search you’ll find this name appears a few times on there and the pictures all look uh… the same.  Just screaming Nigerian scammer to me, SO here it is, pardon me while I throw up reading the “angel” part and yes, true stuff because I swear, I can’t make it up if I tried:

Hello Angel,

I sometime imagine if there were still beautiful ladies out there as you are and never imagined to meet one anywhere not even on here until now, what a beautiful lady you are, looking at your picture makes me think if you were ever born of a woman, cos I think you are a clone of an angel.

I think my becoming a member of this site has finally completed its cause, I enrolled on here in search of my soul mate, my female replica definitely for a very serious relationship and now that I have seen your profile and your pic, I think my search has come to an end.

I am Victor Friday, from Nigeria, dark in complexion, 5ft 7inch tall, very romantic and know how to treat a lady like you. You are free to check out my profile and know more about me. I would want you to do me a favour by giving me the opportunity to get to know you better.

I would really want to hear from you
Lots of Love,

Victor Friday

 
Sigh.

Hangover - a let down following great excitement or excess. Wow. This one sentence describes nearly all of my dating and relationship experiences! I'm a 30 year-old woman muddling through the Los Angeles dating scene and yes - Believe all that you've heard about the screwed up men and women in La-La Land. This blog is of my actual experiences that will either make you chuckle, laugh out loud or maybe say "aw.....". If your dating hangovers seem worse than the next person's, read on, post a comment and enjoy! Carmen
