    A woman by the name of Sane Bhembe who lives in Swaziland is on the dating website, Afrointroductions, is sending expression of interest to unsupecting members on that network and after making acqauintances with you she promises to come visit you in your country and then extort money out of you claiming that its for transport fares. After you've given her the money, that's the last last time you'll have heard from her. People on dating websites must be weary of such characters

    I received an exact sms. Funny enough that number of mine is not in a nokia handset. I did not participate in any competition of late. The team is out to help spend people's hard earned cash.
