      Profile “Maria” usermane: siroberts messaged me promising money so I can donate to charities.  This is a phishing scheme.

      Here’s the reply I sent her Greetings and blessings. I am pleased to tell you that there is a Salvation Army right there in Togo! I hope that you speak with them. I know that they do the most good but are aware of other charities and resources that are also in need.  https://salvationarmy.ca/blog/the-salvation-army-opens-in-togo-and-continues-to-grow-around-the-world/

      Yes!
      I think he or she messaged a lot of us and I found the exact same message on other websites since January if you Google the name.

      I’m hesitant to send out a mass email regarding this as not to stir up drama, so I will answer case by case if someone writes about it, or if you don’t mind changing the title of this post and adding something in about “Maria’s message” or such it would be great.

      This person did make an account with mom friends so they could direct message members and so that is how that came about. There was no hacking into the site or anything of that nature. (You have to have a account here to direct message members).

      I have made it to where no more messages or posts can come from this person, so hopefully the problem will not continue.

      It’s sad that there are people out there like this.

      @mnm1994  yep it seems like all members got it. One of my other friends got one too and she hasn’t been on the site in forever.

      Wow and yes I updated the title! They’re phishing for you to actually email them so they have your email address and can send you viruses/hack you~ I presume.

      @xfilesgirl75 it’s amazing that someone would put so much effort into something like that. I have no clue what I should do at this point.

      @mnm1994  Well i think most people should realize its  scam and will  just ignore it. Just boot them from the site if you see more coming in and doing it.  I delete posts that I know are scams when I see them posted.
