I was contacted today by a member of the UFO News Club who said that Sandra contacted them and told them "she" (this Sandra could very well be some guy for all we know)... She described herself as a 23 year old African woman, living in a
refugee camp in Senegal and related a harrowing story which included the
murders of her parents and other family members by the current
government of her home nation. She went on and on to describe how harsh
life in the refugee camp was but that I could help her.She went on to tell me that her Father, before he died left her 9.3 million American dollars in a European bank account and if only I would
assist her in accessing it she will be able to secure a visa and reward
This sounds very much like the Nigerian scams that get blasted out to email accounts.
If you have accepted a Friend Request from this person I would recommend that you Remove and Block this person.
Personally, I never accept a Friend Request from anyone I do not know. If the person is active on the site and or has corresponded with me previously (i chat or via a message) and is talking about the material on the site and then sends a friend request only then do I consider accepting that request.
This kind of scam happens all over the Internet so I have learned to be very cautious.

I just wanted to give everyone a "heads up" about this.
