The fake response
Feb 18, 2012

One big well known personals site once ran a scam where they
would send out emails to male members pretending to be a female
responding to their profile.
It went something like, “Hi UserName, my name is Jane. I
really liked your profile… I would really like to get to know you
UserName, please read my profile and respond if you would like
to get to know me. Lots of love and kisses, Jane.”
There was more to the email than that, and some parts were
very suggestive, but you get the basic idea. Obviously, they had
written a program that inserts the person’s username into a
standard cover letter and automatically emailed out to members
who were in a similar age and location category to the fake ‘girl’.
To complete the scam they set up a fake profile with a fake
picture and told you how to access it in the email. Of course, you
couldn’t just reply to the ‘girl’s’ email address because the email
came from the sites server. You had to log into the site and then
pay money or join for x-months before you could send an email.
The income generated from a lot of gullible people would be very
significant. It works on the principle that if you email enough
people you are bound to get a few suckers. This is the same principle
that spam email works on.
What really gave this scam away was the wording of the profile,
and the obvious insertion of the ‘UserName’ multiple times in places
in the text that didn’t really make grammatical sense. Very similar
to regular Spam email and junk mail in your letter box.
This scam can be made almost undetectable though if they put
more effort into the writing of the profile and the cover email. They
work because most guys would be so rapped at actually getting an
email, they throw all caution to the wind and hand over money to
respond without even questioning if the email is genuine.
You can have an extra safeguard for detecting this by having two
profiles on the one site. If you get the same email to both accounts
then it’s time to be suspicious.
