This weekend (October 10th, 2009), I introduced accounts on DelphiFAQ.com
The main reason was to give people the ability to edit a comment that they have posted several hours or days ago. Without a login, it was not possible to reliably identify the 'owner' of the comment.
Second, it did happen that someone impersonated someone else by using that person's name. It is still possible to post anonymously, but if you post while logged in, a green check mark will appear next to your name above the comment.
Finally, it has happened several times that one poster tried to reach another poster but neither one of the 2 posters had left their email address. The 2 posters would independently email me and I would try to make the connection. Successfully, in a few cases, I may add. Now, if you are logged in, you can send a message to another registered user on this site.
You can see your own messages in your profile.
In the upper right corner you have links to log in or to register a new account:
Once you are logged in, you can access your profile by clicking on your name in the upper right corner:
This man says he lives in Michigan but ssurrently working in London on a bridge. Says he is widowed and has a 7 yr old daughter and needs a woman in his life to love etc and help to take care of her. Writes lots of poetry. SOunds too good to be true. Asked me to take my profile off of Seniorpeoplemeet website and then asked me for my login info so he can go check to see if my profile had been removed. He said that was the only way. I told him no and he disappeared and took his profile offline.. last I checked. He was using INEEDSOMEONE as user ID and said was 46 yrs old. Never asked me for money. Said he loved me etc. on and on.

Another guy simultaneously contacted me thru seniorpeoplemeet and sent this photo. Said his name was Jason Wilson lives in Greensborough, N. Carolina widowed, 1 daughter named Emily age 15 and his wife and his parents all died in truck accident. He says he is currently working in Nigeria as some commpter hardware dude. Very romantic writing sounds good, but something did not make sense he writes as if he met me already. When I indicated I had no money to do anything to help him, he suddenly disappeared and he took his user profile away. Said he is in love with me and can't live without me yet never uses phone and never asks when we can meet. Seemed to me like the same person as James Bill living in MI and working in London but has a 9 yr old daughter named Jenny. I decided to test him ans asked him about his daughter Jenny and he got flustered and over reacted after I asked why he did not say that is not my daughters name etc. I did not give him any money and he only disappeared after I got upset about him asking for my login info and to take my profile on Seniorpeoplemeet.com and I refused.

Could anyone tell me if they have any contact with a lady from Accuca,Ghana?
She goes by the name of Mimi Salih. Her email address is Brownmilk67@yahoo.com
She has told me she is a model and has a web site called Alexvirgin.com.
The site really exist. The problem is I don't know if i trust her as whom she says she is.
I'm thinking someone is using pictures from Alexvirgin's site.
I do know that there is at least 15 different profiles with Alexvirgin's pictures on them.
She says she is in school studing to be a nurse.
She did ask me for money to pay for her internet service and like a fool I sent $100.oo Western Union.
I don't wish any stupid comments from anybody.
All i want to know has anyone else know this Mimi Salih (Brownmilk67@yahoo.com

Hello Gavin!!!!!! I am glad that I can to learn you better. I
hope that you will respond sincerely on my questions. I as shall
respond on yours. Gavin you very interesting to me and I want to
learn much about you. I do not want to hasten with our acquaintance. I
search for serious relations, instead of game. I hope that you will
not play with me. I love sincerity and the truth. Only sincerity and
love can create present mutual understanding and make the man and the
woman happy. I so think. Are you, Gavin? My name is Tatyana. To
me of 27 years and I am lonely. I was never married. I shall tell
about myself more. I live in city Volzhsk. I work at school, teacher.
I studied English in college. I well talk but at me a problem with
grammar. But I hope that you understand me. I live together with
mother in one house. I have the grandmother who lives in a village. I
make morning exercises, I like to run in the morning. At me have all,
but I not have love. I feel myself alone. There is no man with who I
can be happy. And I have decided to meet the love in Internet. You
have liked me very much and I believe in that that at us the big
future. When I shall be sure in it I think that we shall meet.
Gavin, I would want that you have answered my questions. What you

will answer soon and I shall receive your answers. I wait...... Your
new girlfriend Tatyana.
she keeps writing to you then asks you for $595 for all her travel documents to meet you and promises you the world.i played along with her for three months until she asked for money then told her where to go.
she uses these two e-mail addresses.
When the x-mailer is 'The Bat', there is something wrong with your russian girl. A foto at your computer, its has a short name. Most of russian fotos, there are cryptik names, unserious at all. Now, number 51 of russian scammers tried to decide me. 'I am living in St.Petersburg' but the mails had have the PST-time from California.

To all those thinking of sending credit card details..dont
In Australia we have a card called a direct debt card..
it works like a credit card but you put the money on the card
and that is the only money you can use..
So if a scammer tries to use your card details..there wont be money for them
and it wont send you broke
OJAS from United States
Thanks, Rusty from Oz. Americans know it as the debit card. You can't over-draw on it without a prior agreement signed by the bank.
