I am a near-victim of same scam twice in 6 months perpetrated on internet dating sites such as
match.com and zoosk.com. Attractive man with great profile claiming to be a
widower with a teenage daughter. Is quite flattering and flirty.
Within about 2 weeks, he asks for money because his daughter has been
kidnapped. See below for intro message (from dating site) and 2 follow-up

while preserving the best memories and forgiving the ones that were hurtful and
usually unintentional. I live life one day, one hour, one moment at a time.

spiritually. I live as if time were on fire and I believe that every day of the
right relationship should be treated like the first day of our honeymoon.

have a deep capacity to love that needs to be filled and fulfilled. We can't
keep it unless we give it away.
