77 - I'm well aware of that. The joke you and everyone else apparently missed was that "Digimon" is so obviously wrong, he couldn't be seriously suggesting the Team Rocket theme song came from Digimon.

Even the people who said "Jesse" and "James" got the gender correct. Now that's detail! Best comments I've ever seen here, lmao

The whole conversation made my day. But them there's digimon-boy over here who had to go and ruin it before you got to finish. It's like I died a little inside when I read his comment.

And fast! I remember seeing a documentary about people who were scammed like this. A woman was "dating" a guy for almost a year, and by the end of it, had sent him well over $100,000. I'm hoping for your sake that your mom wises up before it gets that far.

The FML didn't indicate that she got some email about a "poor child" who is in need of clothing and food etc... This is just a dude who knows how to manipulate women on the internet.

Actually most of the time they do try to get you to send money to Africa. It's the most common country right now through the Internet dating sites. This happened to my aunt. She talked to this guy she met through Christianmingle.com every day for months: online, through emails, and on her cellphone. Then one day he started asking her to make large purchases and send the items to him saying he would pay her back. Luckily she was smart enough to end it when that happened and didn't send him anythi

#10 was obviously joking but correct. That's what some scammer do. They'll ask you to send over monies to an uncommon place/country and for your troubles-- they promise to repay double, triple etc. . . sometime in the near future only to be M.I.A. later. Some never report it because they feel foolish for falling for the trap. Dateline NBC much? Many target lonely overly-trusting women.

Also no one is insulting ex:Africa (any country). The money gets laundered and more difficult to trace. The scammers don't necessary live/are from there. Hasn't anyone heard that joke that-- you're going to hide your money in a Swiss bank account to avoid taxes?

Internet dating isn't the problem, it's the scammers who manipulate women and men into sending them money, I would NEVER send money to someone online!

I would have upvoted #73 as a good example of this kind of scam, if they hadn't referred to Africa as a country.

True. My mistake, Africa is a continent not a country. Still the point I was trying to make is, if someone is trying to get you to send money to an African country and its someone you met online that you don't know well, it's probably a scam.
