I am more than happy in your reply to my mail. How is your day?.Mine was hot over here in Dakar Senegal. My name is Lucy Abel (24) single and never married, tall and fair in complexion, Good looking girl but very sharing, giving, caring and loving, above all God fearing, i am from ivory coast in west Africa and presently i am residing in the refugee camp here in Dakar Senegal as a result of the civil war that was fought in my country. My late father Dr .Desmony Abel was chairman managing director FAN INDUSTRIAL COMPANY LTD, in ivory coast and he is also the personal adviser to the former head of state before the rebels attacked our house one early morning killing my mother and my father. It was only me that is alive now and i managed to make my way to near by country Senegal where i am living now as a refugee. I would like to know more about you. Your likes and dislikes,your hobbies and what you are doing presently. I will tell you more about myself in my next mail. Attached here is my picture and i  Hoping to hear from you soonest.

I noticed the other night that on the latest activity tab there were many people receiving this.  I thought of a scam right away and googled the name.  There are many different things listed under that name.  At that time, I meant to post a warning on here but wanted to do more research and quite frankly forgot all about it.  Thanks for letting everyone know.  

Yes, this is a spammer.  If you see something like this please inform one of the moderators - Deah, Eileen S,  June Kowalczyk.  We kick these people off as soon as we find them, no questions asked!

 

Thank you! I feel so much better now. I am really enjoying CWB and love making new friends. It is such a pity that some people abuse your trust. But enough said.

Deah, pleased to meet you. This is a wonderful site and I hope to grow part of the family. I've been here for such a short time, but my knowledge and confidence has really grown so much! Thank you!

This happened to me on Friday, and I got a feeling that something was wrong.  Am always too trusted, but not this time.  I went to see "her cakes", and there was nothing and the setting was "private".  I asked her to send me a message using CWB, not my private email, but she insisted.  I thought, how could her site be private, if the main reason of CWB is to share.  As I started writing a message on CWB as a warning, I stopped myself, because I was not a 100% sure.  I am glad this came on the air...

WHAT AM I MISSING ???????????

OH YES I REMEMBER THAT !

Sandra, even if you aren't sure please let us know.  We have ZERO tolerance for spam!

I JUST THOUGHT IT WAS STRANGE THERE ARE ONLY 2-3 3 OF MY FRIENDS THAT HAVE MY EMAIL ! DO YOU THINKIT HAS SOME THING TO DO WITH ALL THE NEW COMMER'S ? I DIDN'T THINK OF IT AS SPAM! I JUST WONDERD WHY THEY HAD SOME THING TO TELL ME ???

We get them from time to time.  You will not receive a direct email from them unless you have your email posted somewhere on the site.  If they send you a message through CWB you get an email notice of the message but they have no access to your actual email address.  Terri and Brian are the only ones with access to email addresses. 

THANK YOU SO MUCH , IT HELPS TO KNOW THIS ! TFS

Thank you Deah, 

I had not idea this could happen to us here,,,but now I know for the future...thanks.
