I am a new member of the Vanguard Online Community and would want to alert unsuspecting and innocent male members on the existence of fraudsters who pose as female members with or without photographs.
They get your e-mail or name and post a message to you asking you to contact them via e-mail and when you do that, they start giving you some business proposals or even relationship proposals which if you fall victim, yawa go just gas for you.
I have noticed most of these activities on some online social networking sites.
Just this morning, I got a mail from an assumed female member of Vanguard Online Community by name RISA DONATUS proposing to meet me and make me her friend. Due to the bluntness of such male which wasn't common to our female folks, I sent her a mail telling her my purpose of joining the community which was Friendship and Networking and this was the 419 reply I got which is similar to past dubious mails received from such cheats:

HOPING TO HEAR FROM YOU SOONThursday, January 7, 2010 2:57 PM
From: This sender is DomainKeys verified"Risa Donatus" Add sender to Contacts
To: "Kingsley Chiwuike Ukaoha"
How was your night over there in your country and the day,i believe you had a nice night and that the altmosphere over there in your country is very nice today? Mine was a little bit warm over here in Dakar Senegal .

My name is Risa Donatus i am (24yrs) but age ,distance, or colour doesn't matter in a real relationship,so i am comfortable with your age,I am from Cote d' Ivoire in West Africa ,5.4ft tall, fair in complexion, single,(never married ) and presently i am residing here in Dakar as a result of the civil war that was fought in my country some years ago.

My late father DR WILLIAMS DONATUS was the managing director of COCOA EXPORTING INDUSTRIES (Ltd) in ABIDJAN (the capital city of COTE D'IVOIRE ,my country) before the rebels attacked our house one early morning and killed my mother and my father in cold blood.
It was only me that is alive now and I managed to make my way to a near by country SENEGAL where i am leaving now as a refugee under a Revrend father's care and i am using his computer to send these message to you.
I would like to know more about you.Your likes and dislikes,your hobbies and what you are doing presently.I will tell you more about myself in my next mail.Attached here is my picture.
Hoping to hear from you soonest
Yours forever

So our male members, kindly beware of such a member as LISA DONATUS and other impostors

If anyone is still doubting, let the person receive such a letter like the one i got, reply to it, then the next letter would be a business proposal where the person will tell you that before her father died, he left some diamonds or fat bank account with her and since she is a refugee, she can't access the bank account and need help with your own bank account to help siphon the money and that you would be well compensated

Thanks for your observation, any one who thinks he/she is smart is dealing with the wrong person.

Saw ur reply. When you talk about the truth, then you'll be talking about a true story, not a common kind of story spiced with different semantics that I get almost always in my box or via some other social networking sites and such stories, when i normally frequented cybercafes in years gone by, were normally concocted in the dead of night during the all night browsing and you get to see young guys typing many tales exactly like the one I got from Risa.
I do know Risa is not a female but a male from Nigeria.

I admire ur intelligence and smartness towards this issue. I believe somany other people would have fallen for this. But i would have suggested that u take ur time to investigate her so as to be sure she is a fraudster. Who knows she might be telling d truth.
