    Yahoo Date Scam

    Hi,
    I seem to get instant messages in Yahoo messanger lately.They come from supposedly beautiful African women.They begin with normal conversation and send me their model photo's.I have 1 persistant 'lady' who for the past month tells me she loves me etc.Now she is asking for money for the rent on her house.
    I take all of this lightly but this one is real persistant .I think this is the next step from the Nigerian e mail scam.Do Africans ever want to work or is life just a big scam.

    Beware coming to your Yahoo messanger soon. The Afro Love Scam.(it will break your heart)

    Regards,
    Atkin.

    PS When I first reported Modem hijacking to my ISP they thought it was not possible.
    When I reported that my hotmail account was hijacked I was ignored my MSN. :D

    Your bigoted comment aside...

    I'm not familiar with Yahoo messenger, but isn't there some way to block unwanted persons from your list?
