Other Comments: I know she appears on this website, but, now has changed her approach to setting up a MySpace Page. The page's address is http://www.myspace.com/soulmtex01. If asked to help-out financially, DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY.

Is this really true about lonely wife hookup? What I mean a scam and all because they do have gorgious ladies on this site before I block a time frame please someone confirm that site is a scam please.
Below please find quote from posting at scam.com. Says all you need to know.
Walks, talks, quacks and stinks like a duck. It most likely is a duck.
Sorry no hard proof but I registered and will have fun playing this out...
give me a little time.
Like any other site like this there are usually a few in the employ of the site and
maybe even a few real women to round out the mix.
Try having her take a pic of herself holding a sign with text on it that YOU chose.
Pretty hard to fake a webcam but there is software out there that anyone can use
now. Neither is any real proof anymore.

Lonelywifehookup.com another scam
To all the married guys here who think they will be guaranteed something from this site...right, its just another take your money site.. pass on to all your friends not to even think about it. I totally hate these sites who send you BS mail, then rope you in, and your left empty handed. I'd like to hear back from others with the similar view point.
Just looking out for my fellow men out here who are taken advantage of there gender just as well... I dont subscribe, but get great humor out of how these sights think they will work.]

looking forward to hearing from you as soon as possible.
I just got an email by the same name of Rose William. Her photo look gorgeous. I am not sure whether i should reply her email. I am not at peace within myself. Something ain't right. Could be another schemer or scam?
There is no sexy gal on the other end ! Just some ugly black dude with balls in some internet cafe in Nigeria or Ghana ! Usually a lowlife member in a gang of thugs hired on a percentage basis to scam you into sending his gangland boss as much of your money as possible.
WHITE, HISPANIC OR ASIAN CHICK IN NIGERIA OR GHANA CONTACTING YOU ONLINE = SCAM SCAM SCAM SCAM !
You don't have to question it, you don't have to ask why, you don't have to seek exceptions from the rule, because there are NONE. That's just the way it is ! And your beautiful chick in Nigeria or Ghana regardless of their apparent ethnicity is also no exception. Sorry !
If a supposedly white, asian or hispanic chick contacts you online and then turns out to be in Nigeria or Ghana, it's a scam. Always ! As for black people, if they claim to be African-Americans, but 'presently' temporarily in Nigeria or Ghana (or anywhere in Africa) for any reason: job, taking care of a sick parent, etc.. this is also a scam ! Especially if their picture looks like an African-American model. And more often than not a picture of a sexy PORN model cleverly used to lure you into their web of deceit and deception !

'Hi, my dear!
I'm happy to welcome you again and i'm waiting with impatience the day
i can tell you hello personnally. Thank you for your letter.
Clayton , my day was intensive and i'm very tired. I have been in
the travel agency today. There i had a talk with the travel manager
who deals with the registration of documents for different trips. I
asked her to explain me how it would be easier to travel in your
country. She told me that the easiest way for me is to travel to you
as a tourist. It means that i should do a touristic visa and then they
could organise my arrival to you. For it it's necessary to sign a
contract for the registration of documents and to gather all documents
they need for preparing of my visa. I signed the contract with them,
the agency will prepare all my documents for travelling, buy tickets
for me and deliver me in the airport. My trvel agent needs some
information to make the route of the flight, my dear, tell me your
adress and the closest airport to you i should arrive. I need this
information tomorrow that the agent could work out the route and sum
up the cost of the travelling. Tomorrow i should pay some of money for
visa and other documents. It's necessary that the agent begins to do
the work. As soon as the travel agent counts the total cost, i must
pay money for the tour, my tickets in the travel agency that they
could book tickets for me. Visa costs 34 euros + consular tax in your
embassy 100 euros. I'll need in medical insuarance 1 euro a day (30
euros for 30 days) and 150 euros for the agency facilities. In total
it will be 314 euros for visa and documents. I'll pay this money
tomorrow. It's a big quantity of money and these are almost all my
economies. Dear, may be i'll need your help in paying for another part
of travelling. Could you help me with it? I need some money, about 100
euros but i think it won't be enoughf to pay for the second part of my
travelling. Clayton, could you help me to pay for my tickets to
you? The sum will be known after the travel agent makes the route, i
hope it won't be the problem for you and i shouldn't worry. I'll tell
you about the organisation of our meeting later and now i go to have a
rest because i'm very tired today. I hope that soon i could embrace
you Clayton. I wait for your letter. Kiss and embrace you.
P.S. Don't forget to write me your adress and the closest airport!'
Listen up guys... this is an interesting read outlines hotbed activity in West Africa and a typical scammer interview. Take heed !
Online scams create 'Yahoo! millionaires'
In Lagos, where scamming is an art, the quickest path to wealth for the cyber-generation runs through a computer screen.
(FORTUNE Magazine) - Akin is, like many things in cyberspace, an alias. In real life he's 18. He wears Adidas sneakers, a Rolex Submariner watch, and a kilo of gold around his neck. Akin, who lives in Lagos, is one of a new generation of entrepreneurs that has emerged in this city of 15 million, Nigeria's largest. His mother makes $30 a month as a cleaner, his father about the same hustling at bus stations. But Akin has made it big working long days at Internet cafes and is now the main provider for his family and legions of relatives.
Call him a 'Yahoo! millionaire.'
Akin buys things online - laptops, BlackBerries, cameras, flat-screen TVs - using stolen credit cards and aliases. He has the loot shipped via FedEx or DHL to safe houses in Europe, where it is received by friends, then shipped on to Lagos to be sold on the black market. (He figures Americans are too smart to sell a camera on eBay to a buyer with an address in Nigeria.)
Akin's main office is an Internet cafe in the Ikeja section of Lagos. He spends up to ten hours a day there, seven days a week, huddled over one of 50 computers, working his scams.
And he's not alone: The cafe is crowded most of the time with other teenagers, like Akin, working for a 'chairman' who buys the computer time and hires them to extract e-mail addresses and credit card information from the thin air of cyberspace. Akin's chairman, who is computer illiterate, gets a 60 percent cut and reserves another 20 percent to pay off law enforcement officials who come around or teachers who complain when the boys cut school. That still puts plenty of cash in Akin's pocket.
A sign at the door of the cafe reads, WE DO NOT TOLERATE SCAMS IN THIS PLACE. DO NOT USE E-MAIL EXTRACTORS OR SEND MULTIPLE MAILS OR HACK CREDIT CARDS. YOU WILL BE HANDED OVER TO THE POLICE. NO 419 ACTIVITY IN THIS CAFE. The sign is a joke; 419 activity, which refers to the section of the Nigerian law dealing with obtaining things by trickery, is a national pastime. There are no coherent laws relating to internet scams, the police are mostly computer illiterate, and penalties for financial crimes are rarely enforced
'What do you want me to do?' Akin asks in pidgin English, explaining why he turned to a life of Internet crime. 'It is my God-given talent. Our politicians, they do their own; me, I'm doing my own. I feed my family - my sister, my mother, my popsie. Man must survive.'
The scams perpetrated by Akin and his comrades are many and varied: Moneygram interceptions, Western Union hijackings, check laundering, identity theft, and outright begging, with tall tales of dying relatives and large sums of money in search of safe haven. One popular online fraud often practiced by women (or boys pretending to be women) involves separating lonely men from their money.
Attempts to speak to government officials about Internet crime were futile. They all claimed ignorance of such scams; some laughed it off as Western propaganda.
Some officials, who asked not be identified, said young people are drawn to Internet crime as a way of getting back at a society that has no plans for them. Others see it as a form of reparation for the sins of the West.
Or as Akin puts it, 'White people are too gullible. They are rich, and whatever I gyp them out of is small change to them.'
email@example.com is another one. Found me on Facebook under the name Rose Williams. From FL, now in Nigeria. Parents died 10 years ago, had to move in with Granny. Broken English emails. Talked to 'her' on yahoo messenger. 'She' even had a webcam, which 'she' was able to respond to my request, I.e. smiling, waving and such. By end of first convo, 'she' was in love. Second day in, asked for money. I found it quite funny. Got several pictures of a pretty girl out of it, so oh well. Just be smart, folks!
There are many scammer out there in NIGERIA and the so called EFCC is doing nothing.
They dont have the manpower and skills for that.
I try to talkto the Embassy in holland and we do not get a strait answer.
It looks like they want to keep it that way, its money thats coming in the country, thats what they like.
If they dont have the manpower and skills for that, then they can sent me an Email.
but i am not working for free.
I will get those bastard, but EFCC is running away from this kind of things.
I have seen on movies that the EFCC and the police running away from the bustthey have done, what is that for a democraty.
Cut that whole country of the inet, and let them.
BTW Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I was caught in the same way. The unique difference: I was told she was in Africa because she must take care of her sick grandma. She was 29 and looking for a honest man for a serious relationship....just like me....
