I got this same message in response to a Craigslist add in Dallas, TX. No question this is a scammer. The only thing different was the email address provided...sophie_young11 vs. sophie_young09.


'Hiya babe, how are you today? I've had a lot of thought about the kind of guy I've wanted to meet off here, you are that type I hope. Sometimes I get really wild and hot and just have to find someone! I know thats what guys are like, and some of us girls. I'm not always so up for it, but this week I've been getting so hot wondering what type of guy I'll meet off here. So, what you up to tonight? Can you accomodate? I drive so I can't be too far away?
Anyway, Its good to chat to you and i hope I meet with your hopes and dreams

This is an email I got after replying to a post on a SC Craigslist...she sent it using email:sophie_young13@yahoo.com

Hiya babe, did you get my mail? Sometimes my emails get put in the bulk mail for some reason. I'm only asking because I'm feeling lonely and thought you might be available now?

Yup, I was hit by sophie_young13@yahoo.com just this morning after replying to an ad on craiglist.org in phoenix az. I immediately thought it was fake and searched her name, thats how I got here. Her message was pretty much the same as all the messages described in this forum, it started out with 'Hiya babe,' and so on and so forth. She also sent me her photograph which is NOT there at urlx.org/6flab

I got that same message. She told me to look her up on Fling.com and I found her profile all right...It was a DUDE!! If you go to Fling.com and search 'Melibaby' you'll see what I mean.

i got the same email when I responded to her NY craigslist posting. her original email came up in the spam folder which i thought was kind of strange...then she sent me two emails saying the same crap and giving me a 'link' to her fling.com account. she even said that some of her emails came up in spam and she didn't know why. however, the biggest flag was raised, when i realized that one of the emails was from sophie_young15 and the other was from sophie_young16.

Hale-a Lou-Ya... where theres dark and uglys like those detailed here, preying on emotions and toying with lives.... there is a means to make the roachs scatter, some will escape and resurface, but as many can be stomped on, crushed by numbers and knowledge. I have remained cautious with a flood of stranger mails, and ask of everyone who reads here what is the benefit sought by these scammers, how is it escalate and how much if any damage or costs can come from gaining a persons mail addy?

To add to this pile, x Melibaby.... sophie_young015@yahoo.com has surfaced yet again.... in South Florida, on CL, with a word for word email as is seen here.... refering to fling, inviting you to look her up... no pic, no request or other either but I dont claim to know why or for what but... how can the fleeting disposable mail addys on these mailings be caught by filters? When getting near 100 different sorts and types of adv., offers, and/or scamms, is there damage done by just opening the mail, then, without opening attachments or waiting any time, deletin them.... ? What should I look for to reveal and remove any I must have based on this site? Alstly, why cant AVG, or other virus, scam, spam, and phishing protection do anything? or can they? are there any tips, pointers or 411 that can be shared ...

grateful to now know a bit

I have also received the same email, although I have not been asked for any money. It seems it is a ploy from 'Fling.com' to get people to 'sign up' to the service and increase membership.

This is the message I got:

Hiya , how are you today? I've had a lot of thought about the kind of guy I've wanted to meet off here, you are that type I hope. Sometimes I get really wild and hot and just have to find someone! I know thats what guys are like, and some of us girls. I'm not always so up for it, but this week I've been getting so hot wondering what type of guy I'll meet off here. So, what you up to tonight? Can you accomodate? I drive so I can't be too far away?
Anyway D, Its good to chat to you and i hope I meet with your hopes and dreams

Why won't these scammer's ever get caught !!! Isn't it illegal to do what they are doing?

Why don't they get caught???

We are here (where you are) and they are there, in some other country.

At least in the US, our laws stop at the border, so to speak, as do most other places.

Law enforcement generally looks the other way, as this is done in poor countries, or communities, and a source of great revenue.

It's fairly simple economics, as wrong as it is.

good hunting..........drod
