IF you get an email telling you that I have left a message for you on Badoo, especially if it says "Fred" left a message for you with my email addy, disregard.
Because we have a difficult-to-contact landlord who is periodically out of the country a lot, I believed the message directing me to go to this site to read a message left for me (I know-- gullible).
Give me extra stupid points because I believed I had to register to read it. I did register as Fred Flinstone with a bogus birthday and refused to give a password to my email account (thank you Lord for the limited brain cells I have left) and moved on to my "message".
Of course there was none, so I then went on to delete my account.
However, when you try to leave they want to know why. I skipped that and got this obnoxious message:
"We can't believe it's come to this, Fred… There are people that can help you make everything better. But if you're going to just go ahead and end it all anyway, the least you can do is tell us why in the space below.
We think you owe us at least that much after all we've been through! We can change! We'll become better, we swear!".
That may be cute and funny in their world, but it made me angry-- especially when they require a password to leave. Password? I never set up a password!
So, please spread the word. This is a scam. They get private information from you and then contact unsuspecting people in your address book who will think you've actually tried to make contact. DON'T DO IT.
Don't say I never did you any favours,
