I am not at all surprised, they pop up everywhere. I have been on various dating websites in my life and was amazed, shocked and so frustrated by scammers. It is most definitely not just something the men experience. It is rampant and it is very frustrating. Luckily I have not encountered that on CM (yet). I have encountered someone very innapropriate though and I was surprised by his online behavior considering it's a religious oriented site. I specifically chose this site hoping to encounter a man who is more serious and respectful. Online can be very scary!

I would hazard a guess that if you were directing your post to the scammers, it was probably a waste of time.. My impression is that they are here solely to find a 'victim' as quickly as possible and get that 'victim' off the site to pull off their scam.. I seriously doubt they spend much time perusing around the Forums.. The members who frequent the Forums are most generally wonderful people and legitimately looking for a spouse.

Yes many fake profiles on here from overseas scammers with only one or two professional pictures, that write their introduction in broken english "Ams looking for sincere and honest mans, to have beautiful family with. This from someone from Indiana or Ohio ect.. Then if you write them a message they immediately want to take the conversation off site to private emails which is the big tip off. So my first message to them is "You ams fake profile turn back to Jesus and quit trying to scam honest people, and wallah the next day I get "this profile no longer available".

So I know managemant is aware of these frauds and they probably can't do anything about it, just wanted to give the fellers a heads up.
(yes I'm bringing back the word "fellers" it's long overdue

I wish these frauds would at least learn how to speak english
I will say they do find some pretty women to fillout the profile with.

AS a woman I can same the exact same thing....there is a certain pattern or MO that the 'fakers' use, of course, not all who have 'bad English' or improper grammar (I for one, despite my college degree make major grammatical errors, but I also am fluent in Spanish so sometimes I think in Spanish and type in English, not exactly error proof) anywho...it has happened to a lot of us (scammers) you can either ignore them or take a chance on the profile you are interested in and if the little red flags start 'a wavin' run the other way... God Bless!!
