I know all of us are cautious with meeting people online but I just want to warn you ladies of a guy on this site. I have been talking to him for a few weeks and he seemed real nice. He was from LA and his work sent him to London for a few weeks. Then out of the blue his work sent him to Nigeria. That is when I became cautious. Anyway today he told me that he needed some help. He was expecting a check but couldn't get it where he was......you know the scam. I know this site like others has those types but I just wanted to warn you. I don't know if this is the right thing to do or not but if you want to know who he is, email me. I like a heads up so I won't waste my time trying to get to know someone who has his own motives. I don't believe in calling people out in blogs but I just want us ladies to be safe.

I just checked his profile and it isn't available anymore. I turned him into LF so they must have done something.

I don't know this man, but please follow your intuition and stop talking to this man. Even if there was a snowball's chance in hell that his job actually sent him to Nigeria on assignment, I think that it is inappropriate for him to ask you for money when you and he have only been talking for a few weeks. Doesn't he have friends or family that he can ask to help him? Couldn't he ask the person who is supposed to be sending him the check have the money sent to him via a Moneygram or Western Union? Nigeria has those type of establishments. You are correct to be suspicious of him. If a man was serious about getting to know a woman who was a potential love interest, there is no way that he would do or say anything to seem that he needed money from her. He would not want her to think that he was too broke to take her out or spend any money on her.

I 'm curious to know who the "cheesecake" is, but I'm not a full member. You can e-mail me thru LF if you are (please). Thanks!

I do think you should send a head's up to the LF folks as it does relfect on them and I am sure there is only so much they can so but that they would like to know and take whatever measures they can to protect their members.

I probably should but for some reason I don't feel comfortable. If you don't have a full membership and can't email, let me know on here and I will email you.

I think you should post him - for those who don't have email. Large Friends should not be allowing scammers on their site but they can't enforce that if they don't know - just my thoughts Glad you were wary! Di
