Hello My New Friend – Scam

If you receive an email similar to the one shown below, it’s a scam. Delete it

With this type of scam the sender tries to start a conversation with you, sending you many emails with similarly broken English and a collection of photos. There’s also a tale about how poor she is and eventually she’ll ask you for money.

In reality it’s probably a guy, not a girl. And the emails generally have Russian addresses.

Again, remember not to reply to these or fall for the story. It’s just a scam, one of many on the internet.

Here’s a copy of one of these emails:
