Tina

Yesterday I received an unusual number of emails from Plenty of Fish about guys liking me and messaging me. I knew this was odd because that only happens when you log in and become more visible. I’ve largely ignored POF due to the advertising banners trying to convince my to join dating websites aimed at BBWs. Get out of my life.

Anyway, this “woman” named “Tina” hacked my Plenty of Fish profile. The only thing that was changed was the picture. All my profile information and user name were still the same. “She” obviously didn’t change the password and I promptly deleted my account.

I can’t believe that some of my friends honestly thought that was a scheme I came up with. I think if you read “Tina”‘s messages it becomes blatantly obvious that this is an orchestrated long distance financial scheme. I can’t answer the questions behind “Tina”‘s motivation because I AM NOT “TINA.” I’m just making assumptions based on how these schemes work.

(It’s clear I gave up on editing. I didn’t want to include any photos or personal information of the responders.)

Here are the conversations I managed to save. Unfortunately, I lost my favorite one. Obviously I changed all the names, emails, phone numbers etc….
