Hello pretty lady, want to chat?
No, just here to play the game.
Where are you from?
I don’t reply. I’ve downloaded the Words with Friends app, hoping to improve my mind. Seems every other opponent is just here looking for a mate.
Do people usually meets partners on this site? I messaged one man.
I don’t know, he replied, and then continued to prod for information. Eventually he asked me to delete him. Said he was looking for a wife.
Then I got a text from an unknown number: V.J. your package is detained at duty. Click this link to retrieve it.
I haven’t ordered anything. I deleted the message.
Scams are everywhere. Sometimes, they are laughable, and sometimes they can do a lot of damage.
