All the time, I always report them, and the Q does a good job of hunting them down and deleting their profiles. 

They are a scam, some to rip you off, some to highjack your mailbox or spread virus's.  If you google "Nigerian Scammers", you'll find loads of information about them. 

What's sad is it must work, or they wouldn't do it....

They could selectively block IP addresses from different parts of the world.  But I doubt they'd do that, I'm sure they know it's possible, they would have done it by now.

Many websites are blocking IP's from Nigeria and Russia because of scams. 

By the way, if you want to know where someone really is from, have them send you an email.  You can get their IP address from the header of their message, and copy and paste it into a tool that will identify it for you.  But know that some IP's are a little misleading.  For example, if someone sends an email from a blackberry on yahoo, and they are from Kansas City, their IP may show from SanFransisco, which is where Yahoo's main server is located.

Just know, that people that message you looking for love or lasting relationships are most likely trying to scam you.  Look at their profiles, it's a dead giveaway.  They usually have posted no content, have only been around for a short while, and have sent the same message to many others.  You can look at their shout outs received and see responses from people who are fooled by them.

Their chosen teams are a giveaway as well.  A woman from Indianapolis who is a Real Madrid soccer fan for example. 

The first time I received one of these messages I started researching.  There is loads of info online about them. 

By the way, there are smart ones too.  I know of one who is a regular contributor.  So be careful who you trust, and what information you give to people.  They may already have plenty of info on your from your profile and what you post, they're just waiting for one or two more pieces so they can take advantage of unsuspecting people.  If someone is unwilling to send you an email, that's a dead giveaway.

#13 | 1808 days ago

Of course i do. i didn't know i had so many people in love with me.
NO  
#14 | 1808 days ago

Another thing.

When you submit security questions on your online accounts such as a bank, they ask personal questions.  Such as 'where were you born', 'where did you go to high school', 'what was your first pets name'.  Etc.  The poll on here ask many of the same questions.  Know that people will gather this info, and pump you for more.

I'm not saying people who make these poll do it to scam you, but there are people out there who will record this info about you and use it to take advantage of you.  They're just looking for a few more missing pieces.
NO  
#15 | 1808 days ago

I always ask them for their credit card info. JK, just report 'em.

I get at least one every day from someone in Nigeria or GB! lol
#19 | 1808 days ago

My favorite is the guy who sends me a note saying he looked at my profile and how attractive I am.  If you have seen my profile you know that the only picture I have up is my avatar.  I guess the guys think polar bears are sexy. 
Yes  
#20 | 1808 days ago

Love is an amazing and powerful thing :)
Oh, by the way, I'm single. Call me :)

 As I have brought up in other polls, I have received little attention from the ladies, or dudes for that matter. Since joining the Q, I can't even draw the fake affection of a foreign spammer posing as a woman. Does that make me lucky or pathetic?

If you ever get those, please forward them to a mod so we can in turn alert Jess who will delete their spamtastic asses.

At least we have to appreciate that they do a great job copying and pasting tons of msgs every day, since we can´t send CC with multiple addresses..all in the name of love
#28 | 1807 days ago

Who knows who/what could be at the other end. 90% of the time its a dude acting as a chick. Plus they're (supposedly) aged 35+ & I'm only a few weeks off 18 (cradle-snatching much?)

I always flag their profile. Its funny though when I look at their profiles how many people are giving them shout outs back. the profile pics are always of a beautiful girl.
#32 | 1807 days ago

Tell me about it, so irritating, plus I don't think those automatic messages note the sex of the person.
