May Leo is a Scammer (satire)

In a previous scam, I saved the emails.

In this email thread, the most recent email received is at the top, and the oldest, the bottom.

Note also that May Leo is a member of GooglePlus...

Thanks for getting back to me on time, my business trip is going down well, Baby my goals and dreams are to live a good life, and maybe meet someone that believes in unconditional love. I know you will think what is a pretty lady like me doing online here, the reason I came on to the internet to find the special person who deserves all the love and passion that makes up my heart and soul is because I do not have the time to meet others in public setting because of the nature of my job. I'm always on mobile trying to upgrade my small business, and the fact that I feel you can learn so much about someone is through letters, as a person has to take there time and think about the words they want to express, so it allows you to gain a better understanding of someone than you would probably otherwise. Although, I'm not an out going type but i love to spend time with people i love when I'm with 'them. I really want to meet you as soon as i get back home.

Honey I believe I'm a blessing to a man that deserves one, I will keep him happy and cheer him up when he is sad, comfort him, listen to him and be there for him at all times, keep him warm and keep his heart beating at a smooth pace, wont let him down, l will keep him in my mind all the time, And will be loyal to that special one, will not fight, but talks his way out of any confrontation, stands up for what he believes in and stands strong by his words. I believe a man should be treated like a king. I have a great sense of humor, honest and very sensitive and caring for a mans needs. I believe that if couples are true friends you will get true love, and they will do what ever it takes to make each other happy, has God in his life and follows that path of greatness. I'm looking for a man that will be able to listen to me, communicate his feelings to me, make me laugh, hold and comfort me in need, stand by my side, respect me, passionate lover in every way, support me in every way, love me and only me. I feel I have a lot to offer you in the way of a friendship and I know I have a lot to share with you that will be of interest to you and even some things that will surprise you. I have such a strong understanding of what I feel my role in life is suppose to be, Although am not that a fanatic as stated in my previous email. I am a woman of integrity and my word is my honor! So if i tell you anything it is as it is. I have very high standards for myself and my life is all about providing love, peace and happiness to others. Don't worry about your past as we all have mislead in the past. We all made one mistake or the other but we are great based on our ability to correct them and move on.

I cant wait to read from you.

I too have abstained from sex. I have had four relationships, the first about nine months, the second a couple months, the third was a year and the last one was six months.

Because you revealed to me that you reside outside of Canada, let's keep this a friendship until you return to Canada.

Thanks for contacting me. I'm serious about this relationship when you are closer. It's the first time I have met a woman who travels extensively, and hope that you make it home back to Canada safely so we can meet.

Even though I have said I wish to remain friends, it is because you have confided in me and I appreciate that. However, please do not hesitate to answer all queries regarding relationships because even though I'd like more out of ours, it should begin by becoming friends first.

Sex is about making love, and ought not be taken lightly. It is ok to have strong feelings for a person you grow to love.

However, for now, friends is good.

It's nice to know the challenges life has presented to you within the last few years. All painful and sorrowful at first but in the end, they teach us so much about ourselves and makes us better person. My business trip is going down well and it is easy for me cause i rented a car for a cheap price and that make me move around easily, i have a lot of time to drive around the city today and know more places Also i am almost done with my business down here, i should be back home by next week, I will love to know more about you, tell me the quality you'll like in your woman and what you want your woman to always do and observe. You sound like my perfect match but I want to provide you with a good understanding of who I am, what I am all about, and what has made me the person I am today. The reason behind me sending this message to you is because I am serious about wanting to establish quality friendship with you, and because of the fact I rarely contact anyone on here, so when I do you can be rest assured I am serious about my intentions. I really like to find a special man for dating and openness for what may develop. I want that connection with him to have a balance of attraction and chemistry. He must be lots of fun to be around. He must be easy going and very intellectual,I'd like a man that will be ready to pamper me and take care of me. Who is not self centered and will respect my intention and ability. He must be intriguing, genuine, caring, passionate, and sensual. I want someone who is open to a relationship. I do not want him to be in a race to get there either. Time will tell and compatibility will set our pace. He must not just want a position filled. I want him to want me, he must make time for us despite the craziest of schedules and also respect my schedule regardless of how clumsy it might be. I want someone who needs me as much as I need him. Everyone has issues and hardships develop but he must not run away from them or hide them, rather he must let me help or simply support him in what ever way I could. I'd like him to be someone who will become my best friend as well as lover. I will be glad if i can find all these qualities in you because i don't want to search any more. I have been into 2 relationships after the dearth of my Husband and 1 of my relationships ended because of my partners betrayal and infidelity (cheating) and that last for 4 months and the other 1 ended because the love was not there to grow, presently i don't have any serious relationship and i really need one. I know this sounds strange to you but I have not been sexually active for 7 Months ! I know this sounds strange to you. I refuse to have sex with someone if I am not in a relationship with and my last relationship ended Months back. My reasoning which I understand is very strange in today's world, but my belief is my heart and soul, and the passion that is in it is very unique and special, so I made the decision that I would not be sexually active for the sake of just wanting sex, or to have sex for someone else’s own self gratification. Knowing the passion that is contained in my heart and soul is very unique, I made the decision to abstain from sex because I want this special gift to be shared with the person I am dedicating the rest of my life to, as his Soul mate or Wife.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thank you for your openness, I don't know how to proceed but let see how things develop, not in those precise words, but you get my drift. The idea of your being able to fill the vacancy in my life, is a new way of thinking to me, yes I would like this vacancy filled, but we will only do this together. I have always been single after the death of my husband, and you are the only man I am writing to at the moment, Also i want you to know that i'm presently in Turkey on a business platform and i would be back home next week. I am here on a business platform.. I am trying to upgrade my business. It has been an interesting business; I don't want you to feel that i am not interested in you and i will love to get to know you more. Also, i want you to know that life leaves you pain, teaches you until you learn and even if life takes so long, it always takes you to where you belong. I am a person that flash to the past but focus on the face of the future. My parent were both British Aussie background about 4 generations; my mum was into art merchant. My mother died of cancer and my father pass on last year. I practice the normal way of life and i never love the sinful act. I don't do drug and always believe in myself. I love football so much and i love playing tennis as a sport. As for my work, My life has been mostly focused on creating success for myself that is the reason i chose to be self employed, and I work from home at the moment and i really enjoy doing it, its involves traveling,meeting people of different race and culture, sharing ideas and feelings and some many more. I know the type of person whom I want to build a friendship with, so I am willing to put the time and effort in my messages to show that to you. I am interested in meeting a man who is mine. I want somebody who will understand me to the best of my imagination. I'm online because am yet to find that special man to share my life with but all what I need now is someone honest, loyal that I can trust. I have some questions for you now I do hope you answer them before we move forward. How old are you ? Where are you located? What do you do for a living? Do you live alone? Do you rent or own where you live or with kids? What are you looking for on the site, How long have you been in this internet dating thing? Any luck yet? And I hope you are not a cheater or lair like most men out there trying to use lady just for sex mate? I will love to know more of you. I want to know more about your family, background, life experiences, past relationships, goals, dreams, interests, and anything else you want to tell me? I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Such a beautiful woman as you but so easily led by unscrupulous men.

It would never happen from me. I too am insular since I have lost my virginity at age 34. However, I know of the nooks and crannies of the Internet, and they are not for the innocent.

However, be not afraid I would take advantage of you. For I am not that way.

If you wish to know of me, then I offer to you my G+ :
Also I am sageb1 under twitter and youtube and have music on

My blog is

Google also can confirm that sageb1 and are associated with each other. It helps to use google to see how large my Internet footprint is.

Hopefully, we meet one day since after seeing your pictures, your beauty is your asset.

Not sure what to find with this email....but assume it's legitimate so will progress. I rarely do sites as unsure of what to find and they can turn to disappointment very quickly. So from my email address you can pick up my name. I am into fashion and designing and sales of woman jewelries,accessories and Gemstones. I was born in Netherlands; I spend most of my child hood in Netherlands before i relocated back to McAllister Ave, Port Coquitlam, BC. I can relocate for the one i love. If you don't mind, I have to tell you my personality is rather insular, I don't make friends very easily, I have some hang ups of a personal nature, not in a weird way, I have never been really close to a male because of my past, trying to open up to you makes me sound desperate to me, you get what you are reading; I don't do secrets and am open in personality, but I have never found my other half after the death of my husband, and I wonder if I ever will, circumstances and my unwillingness to move forward in my life, i have been hurt by the people i have meet so far after the death of my Husband, this made me close down my business in the past but my life has been mostly focused on creating success for myself that is why i try to re open small business on my own again, I don't like digging to my past, it hurt me and i like to concentrate on my future because that is what is important to me at the moment. I need a man who will love me for whom i am and be there for me in good and the bad moment of my life. I am the only child of my parent. I am human and am just curious to know if I could make a loving partner to a man, I will finish here, I think I have given you a feel of me, I have had 3 other pen-pals so called on here, but they were not true, I am for real, it is very difficult on here I know too well! I look forward to hearing from you soon

I heard you are thirsty for a steamy mate to share your naughty desires.

Are you into texting before the first date?

In the first email I started with this saucy reply based on what "May Leo" put in her profile description on Loveaholics.

It evolves into a "customs surcharge scam" where the mark (me) is targeted and groomed to extract money from. Note how much money the scammer wants, over $1000. My reply was a no thank you and a reprimand that no customs agent ever does this (hold stuff for cash) because it is illegal. It is illegal to seize someone's gold for cash. If I came into Canada with gold, CSA does not confiscate my gold and extort cash from me.

After telling this scammer "No", "she" stopped emailing me.

May Leo hangs around dating sites and tries to build up a relaxed online chat and steers the victim away from the dating website to her personal email address, after a couple of weeks after she tells you about her dead husband or abusive boyfriend who left her and took most of her savings from her business she explains that she is using the money that her dead parents left her to rebuild her small business of buy gemstones and gold jewellery that she buys from abroad and sells in either the UK or USA for a tidy profit. She fails to contact you for a few days then contacts you saying that she’s in Istanbul, Turkey and the Turkish customs have seized her goods worth 300,000 euro until outstanding customs charges are paid, she will email you a copy of a letter from customs in Turkey which is rather authentic as well as a copy of her Australian passport. At this point she asks for around $2000 dollars and if needed she can produce all kinds of other fake documents like shipping fee invoice, goods invoice, bank card etc.
Really she tries to play around with your conscience of goodwill and honesty towards a fellow human being, if you loan her any money at all she will constantly email you throughout the day and try and get more money out of you by saying if you don’t give her more money then she can’t pay your initial loan back. If you have loaned her anything up until this point stop now and cut your losses. This woman appears to dumb and mixed up and you may not suspect her as being a scanner at first.
