Another Scammer Identified

Hi all,

Just to let you guys know that member bomaa1 has been identified as a scammer and her account has been closed.

I’m sorry that you might have received an email from her – I’ve now purged the actual messages from the site.

Once again this scammer was from Africa, this time the Ivory Coast. I’m seriously considering banning all registrations from Africa.

I’ve also been thinking about how to identify scammers more quickly. To this end I’m currently looking at some very nice mathematical equations which I will be able to use to enable the site to identify scammers right away. I hope to be able to implement this functionality in the next couple of weeks.

In the meantime, you can identify African dating site scammers by virtue of them logging in from West Africa (Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Senegal, Ghana) and they often use photos of models. If I see any obvious scammers I do suspend their accounts, but I gotta sleep you know, so it might be a few hours before I spot them.

At some point the site will also have a report a member page, but I am of the opinion that the site itself should spot the scammers, it shouldn’t be up to you guys.

Safe dating!
