I've had two or three of these requests from men before and just delete them but I read that many women are taken in by them and then get scammed big time!
I had a few like that via facebook too. There was only one that I actually added as he had over 20 mutual friends of mine and my friends. Once added I got a private message to say he wanted to meet and wanted a photo, so I sent him this and then blocked him. Longer serving members here will recognise it as I once used it as my profile pic :lol: :lol:

These scams are crazy,
I got a call once telling me the same virus on computer story (they want remote access to look at your info for banking) but at the time I didn't have a pc. When I told him this he asked "Why not?" in an angry tone and I was stunned silence for a few before I exploded at him. Lol
Also Jenny lucks, it's actually very common for people of Asian culture to take (legally) a Christian name. I worked in a sushi bar in London and my teacher was Malaysian and told me his real name but that he took the name Aaron legally over here.
