There must be a new scam out there.
I've been receiving random texts from complete strangers.
So they started their text to me with a very clever opening line "hi".
I responded with an equally clever "Who is this?"
"I found your picture on Active Rain, and I like you"
"Well, isn't that special?"
"Yeah. Where are you from?"
Now, maybe it's just me, but I replied:
"If you found me on Active Rain, you should already know where I'm from."
"LOL... I just wanted to know more about you..."
"Everything you need to know about me is on my profile".
The brain-trust at the other end then said "I just to talk to you as pal so i don't need to use what i saw over there as part of our conversation"
"I'm not looking for any new text-pals... thanks".
Phew... bullet dodged.
