Personal Message in my in box this morning. I expect they aren’t aware of my focus in my community!

Hello beautiful, i just came across your profile here. I would like to be friends with you. I want you to know that you are a very beautiful and attractive woman and you are a woman with a difference, what i see in you i have never seen in any other woman. Your beauty is exceptional. And your beauty is one in a million in this world. I will be so honored to be your friend sweetheart. You are the best beauty of your kind. Looking forward to read from you soon and get to know you better. Warm hugs and kisses to you.

This message was waiting for me this morning from my Google plus account.  In my Removing Obstacles to Love Workshop this week a participant spoke about a scam she encountered and how it affected her.  We used this scenario in a role play to connect to the needs that where not met.

I mentioned to the group afterwards how someone could take the online photo’s   and do a Google search to find out if they had been used in other profiles.


 

Click on the picture  to enlarge it and then right-click twice on your mouse in rapid succession.  Options will come up that will include a search for similar photo’s.  Click that option and you may be surprised to find the same picture several times with different profile names.

I have in the past reported these to Google plus, however, they have now made it harder to report scammers.  They want the person whose picture that is being used to report it now.  This gives the scammers an edge.  Now I simply block these accounts.

The above message came from a John Miguel. I would ask my community members to watch for this account to pop in their networks as their goal is  to become friends and then go through your friends searching for targets.
