Hi there,
as I am a very new member of OH I have a question that I am not sure who to go for an answer on this.
I keep getting messages from a person calling herself  Lovely Liberty, but it says that she is a deactivated member. She is asking me to email message her directly, is this normal. I am kind of niave when it comes to this type of thing, so I am not sure if this is someone just trying to scam my email address out of me or not?  Is there a way that I can find our if this is a legit person actually looking for someone to talk to about a wls journey?

Hi Linda,

This is a scam message or something.  I get messages like that from time to time.  You can either just ignore it or try to block them.

Block her immediatly and DO NOT respond to her.  I've gotten about 15 of these over the past 3 years or so. They sneak through every once in a while, not daily.  Don't waste the time to find anything about them.  They likely are a fraud anyway.  There are plenty of members of OH to talk to. Deactivated members are not the ones you want to talk to, they likely just want $$$. DAVE

Dave,

Just wanted to say it is good to see your posts again. I was worried when I didn't see them for awhile.

Good to know you are okay.

Thank you for your replies, I figured that there had to be something kind of off about the way this person is asking me to contact them directly. I will block or delete and ingnore any future ones that I get that are like that.
Thanks again,

 Report and delete those without even responding to them ... they are usually a scam 99% of the time...
