There is a new member registered as awunya who attempted to get a response from other members personally rather than through a comment on the website.

Beware! It is a typical Ghanaian scam: a group of thugs masquerading as a "damsel in distress" and trying to extract some money by telling a BS story - sick mother and brother & sisters; needs help for AIDS drugs etc. They are usually working dating sites but apparently no one believes them there anymore so they are trying to extend their area of operation to other interest groups who might be still unsuspecting of their scam. Stay away from them and never respond from your personal mail. It will be shared with other scamsters who might try other, more convincing methods to cheat you out of money. It is a big industry in Ghana and Nigeria involving corrupt officials who would issue any supporting evidence you might request to dispel your doubts. I know this well from my work.

Richard, you should kill off this account before someone is suckered in.

thank you for putting this out there....i got one such message, thought it was sus so did not answer...the only answer they got was,,,,,,,contact me through my message here as i will not give out my email unless i know you....it  just didn't sound right.

I received this message today June 15, 2016,  and think it is probably spam. 

"Greetings Beloved.
I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed its necessary to write you immediately.
I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.
Could you please get back to me on (fariza_hazeem22@yahoo.fr) for the full details.
Have a nice day.
Fariza."

I am not going to respond, but thought someone should know.

Yep that's a spammer. I'll ban them now.
