Doesn't it make you angry when you receive messages like this all the time? ''hello, my name is miss juliana, while i was searching for languege partner, i saw your profile and became interested to have you as a best friend and have serious relationship with you. please i want you to send me an email through this mail ( julianaj453@ yahoo.com )so that i will send you my photos and tell you more about myself. thank, juliana.''' I don't understand what the heck those people are thinking. The first time I received that miss' message was several years ago and I believed in ''her,'' I sent ''her'' back a message and she wrote me a long email saying how she got trapped in ''her'' country because of domestic wars and that ''her'' daddy was a businessman and left ''her'' a deposit overseas so ''she'' needed my help to get that money and how she could slipt up some of it to me. But before ''she'' could make sure I was sincere to help, I must send her an amount of money. I can't understand why but it's been years and they still got that silly message sending all over the place. They hardly changed a word of it.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Go to flag and report the person to italki as a spammer. Never reply.

Here's a suggestion: look up "scambaiting", have a read of the blogs, enjoy a good laugh, and remember there are still people fighting the good fight (and having a ball of a time doing so). :)

It's not really worth getting upset over. Just ignore messages like that.

yes it bothers me a lot, but what I do is deleting the message
