Tons and tons of fake profiles. In the first day alone I had over 70 'messages' mostly from Ghana. After only one day of communication with a 'woman' she was asking me for airtime for her phone.
There may be real people hoping to meet other real people, but the profiles are so few and far between it's not worth your time or money.
Some warning signs to watch out for:
1. Incomplete profiles
2. All info is written in lower case letters including their name
3. English is not correct (even though they may claim to have a Master's degree...lol)
4. They almost immediately want to move the conversation to Yahoo messenger
5. They're looking for someone between the ages of 23 and 99 - even though they may only be 23 themselves
6. Only one photo shown and its a very attractive woman
7. They don't carry the conversation like somebody would if they were truly interested in you
8. They use a lot of words like 'my dear', 'my love' or 'the love of my life'
9. Unusual and inconsistent things in their profile
10. They are vague or fuzzy when you ask them specific questions
Use common sense. The 'lovely lady' you're speaking to is likely some dude sitting in an Internet cafe. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is!
Pretty much all scammers.
