Weird Email Asking for Money on My Contact Form…

Banfora Every single person with email on earth must have received a scam email at least once where a person with an internet and email access is posing as poor and in need for money. Usually those spammers are pretty easy to point out and ignored at once.

However I had received this very weird email from someone who didn’t email it to me directly. They went to the contact form on my blog, filled out their information, and asked me for $1500 so she could finish her last year in college to become an architect because she is an orphan and can’t work anymore to put herself through college because she is too tired and school is so demanding and she sold out all her jewelry!

Did anyone else get the same on their contact form? This is no generalized email sent by some auto bot sitting somewhere. This is an actual person who went to my blog, looked around for the contact form, and decided that I have $1500 to give out. It scares me a little. Also it angers me. Yet it also produced some guilt in my chest: what if its real? She is a real person in need and here I am accusing her of being a thief?

What do you think?

    I don’t usually comment on stuff, but I got an email from a guy asking me about sonething I completely didn’t understand, so I replied to him in arabic and english and asked him to try and explain it, he went to the form again and wrote in arabic, after a quick googling I got his answer and replied to arabic.
    he was like:
    ليش ما قلتلنا انك تتكلم عربي الله يقطع سوالفك هههههه

    I was like “seriously ? Do I know u ?”
    My point is, contact this person to see if this is a scam or for real, try to be very careful

    I believe you need a proof, though I’m not really sure how she can prove it to you.
    You have the right to know if it’s true or not before you spend your money on it.
    If she was an orphan as she said so, maybe just maybe… her orphanage has an official website.
    May I know what was the payment method ?
    I can assure to you that there’s uncountable online spammers so beware.

    • danderma says:

      She didn’t say! Just that she wants the money. Maybe she planned on Paypal?
      Of course if she was that desperate she could have sent to papers or something. But then why me? Of all people on planet earth and on other countries, why me? Why my blog?

      • Cookie Baker says:

        Yeah…. the same question comes to anyone’s mind, I think u should forget it.
        May God bless your kind heart :)

    Don’t trust whoever sent you that email! and don’t feel guilty! if the girl is really in need she would find other ways to get money!

    If may I ask from which country she is ?
    If she is from europe or states the universities usually give students loan !

    I got the same email, must admit it was fairly hard telling if it was spam or not. Never had someone fill in the contact page and pass the human test with spam before.

    • danderma says:

      What! You too? Ga3da etdoor 3la blogat el q8 wa7ed wa7ed!!! Shelsalfa?
      It sounded like someone had genuinely typed that down. She is a real life person for sure… why the Q8y blogs though?

    Your husband is right. Just ignore it. When you reply, they have a way of hacking into your computer & get hold of all your stuff.

    • danderma says:
