Online love scammers are everywhere. They haunt the Facebook, Myspace, Friendster, you name it, they are there.
And I am getting sick of receiving messages from them. But then again, looking at things, maybe they can become a source of humour. I mean, look at these messages that came via my hardly-used-account of Myspace:
A message from a dude who called himself Eddie Johnson. Looks like a middle aged western guy.
True friendship is forever and lasts for more than a while ,don’t think about saying never, just look around and then smile. True friendship will stand the test of time no matter what people say or do,and one like yours and mine are proof that it’s all too true to be given a trial.
I know we had to meet cos in this search for love we could be meant for each other and there is only one thing in life which is to love and be loved. I will like you to keep this friendship alive so you can contact me with my e-mail address email@example.com
Another came in by the name of Wellington Ehonwa. He looked like a western guy but with a name like that, you can never tell huh? Read his message:

Zacki Clinton looked suave enough. Maybe the real guy who owned the picture was really suave , but not the scammer who used it. His message was titled: I love you cat….hmmm…he loves my cat? Right…
Hello dear, How is your day? hope it was great, i hope you have a very civilised atmosphere. It was really good spending my time with your profile on-line. I would like to have some chatting conversation with you, i knew there was something very special about you because you have captured my mind and interest.
I think and i have come to realise that our meeting on net is a destiny that will soon come to pass. The net is only but a mediun for us to meet each other due to the great distance separating us. More so, i would like us to keep in touch always.
I wish you could understand me better and know how deep i adore, admire, and want you. i really want to have a good relationship with you, do let me know your opinion concerning my proposal to you, Hope to hear from you soon.
Have a lovely day.
Verdict: He wished I have a civilised atmosphere…and that he had a good time with my profile online? What does that mean? Did he do something that I think he did? Hmm..
