So, this dude from match and I have been emailing back and forth for about a week now, I'd guess. He'd been telling me about his mom's medical trouble, and how he's in Africa with her until he can come back to the states. We even chatted on Yahoo once.
This was the email I got today:
Good Morning My Sweet Adam,
How are you doing? How was your night. I hope you slept well. I am back from the hospital i went to check on my mom. She is not getting better. The Doc called for an operation on her colon Because she hard colorectal cancer. That is really hard for me right now being the only child. I don't really know what to do. Life hasn't been this grateful to me, until there was you to talk to. You sound really nice and caring. Thanks for being there for me.
I need to ask you something please don't say NO because you are my only hope i don't have any friend or family to run to, i don't want to lose my mom she is all i have she can hardly talk right now. The doc said if, i don't pay for her operation as soon as possible, maybe i will lose her please i don't want to lose her. I need a little help from you financially. On my mom Operation. I know you don't know me much. But that shouldn't stop you from helping me if you want to, I promise to pay you back when i get back to the states. Please i don't want to loss my mom she is all i have. My only family. Let me know if you can help me. So that i can give you the email of the doctor so that you can contact him. And settle things with him. Please try and write back. I hope to good news from you soon.
Are you fucking serious? Is this your scheme? Find the desperate folks and then scam them out of money? I realize, now, that anything I say at this point isn't going to make a goddamn lick of difference, but that's fucking low, "Ken"
You don't want me to say "NO"?
Fine, I won't say NO, I'll say go fuck yourself.
Seriously...is it me?
(Funny, also, that that Match profile doesn't exist anymore)
