A lot of people are using this medium for different kinds of agenda. To mention a few; folks come to seek for marriage ( i am a single woman/man, and am looking for a partner ), others are using it to scam. Recently I received an email from a "certain" Lady ( that is what she claims to be ) and that she is a Sudanese, now living in Dakar Senegal as a refugee. She has read my profile on OFM-TV and has picked interest in me for she is seeking a partner.
I replied her by saying; " I identify with your situation though, but I am a married man, what I can do for you is to put you on my prayer list for God to make a way for you".
By the way she gave me an email address to reply to, which I did thinking it was confidential, and as a Pastor I know how to do that. This is the address firstname.lastname@example.org
Surprisingly she went ahead to send me two of her pictures, without heeding my warning that I am a married man.
I replied her by saying; "You are a beautiful woman but I am a married man, so try somebody else, to save your time and my time".
Then the BOMBSHELL dropped this morning, THE NIGERIA 419 WAY. "My father before his death was the CEO of WILSON Business blah blah blah, with millions of dollars deposited in a secret account which only I know where it is. If you will marry me I will send the money to your accounts and from there you help me process my traveling documents and I come to you and we live our lives on the rest". SCAM!, SCAM!!, SCAM!!!.
1. Immediately I saw her picture I knew something was not clicking, because she does not look like a Sudanese. I am from Ghana, and have lived in Mali, Brukina Faso, Niger and Libya.
2. I do not want to paste the pictures, because (a) this girl might be innocent not knowing that these people are using her picture and (b) probably she is an accomplice.
Jesus warned us to watch out for the WOLVES IN SHEEP CLOTHING! Aword to the wise.......
So people watch and pray, OFM-TV gave this warning sometime ago, be careful with yahoo initiated emails. STAY IN THE LORD'S BLESSINGS.
