If you need the complete tutorial to use it then you can. Joe August 10, 2015 Great article!! So no matter how you look at it, you will always loose something if you reply to a 419 scammer, unless you are a scambaiter off course. Even flag future messages from the same domain. Zoosk asked me to validate my phone number but sad to say I did not receive any code though I already typed my phone number. I made no attempts to obscure me at all, but they were frequently rejected.
If you're a free member, you can only send winks to other members to get their attention. At the end of the day you are going to meet that special person. A chain letter will be passed along the line and will definitely land in the mailbox of someone you never met and probably never will meet.

There are tons of fake profiles and yes they use a bait and switch technique to scam males. You respond, say you're interested, send a smile and like back and nothing.
