Beware of Scammers on Tagged

I have been a member of Tagged for some time but lately the scammers are coming out of the woodwork.

I have met lots of people from on line and most of them are great but you must beware that there are also those who are out there just to pray on others.

Since I began writing for Triond over a year ago I have joined many social networking sites to post my articles on and make new friends one of which is I never really did much on the site or added many friends but I did post my articles and held one more back link to my content.

Over the past couple of weeks I have been receiving all the site has to offer with meeting new people. I guess maybe it has happened because I finally completed my profile and my status is single. I think this was my first mistake.

I have been receiving mail messages from guys from all walks of life. Some are gorgeous and some are just ordinary looking but none of them can speck correct English. The little light bulb in my brain goes off every single time I receive one of these messages and blinks warning, warning this is a scam.

Here is one of the messages sent to me by a so called guy who is interested in me:

How are u doing today,hope u are doing fine and how is ur family doing … and happy new year over there doing… …anyway..dont be suprise that i get intouch with u …i was just browsen and i came along with ur profile so i decided to sent this mail to u if my request is acepted from u….anyway here is a little more about myself

    If I don’t meet someone just by living my life I’m certainly not going to try to meet someone over the Internet. So, I don’t have this problem; but I know that a lot of people do use the Internet to meet people and your article will help to keep them out of trouble.
