I blame Obama.

even going so far as to make a fake website.

I'm sure the website itself was real.

Sad?  Definitely.  Surprising?  Sadly, not.

God's probably washing his hands of this one.

How slow do you have to be? I wouldn't lend my best friend $500k - I was going to say without some assurances, but on further reflection if the bank thinks it's a bad idea, they're probably right.

This is why Nigerians keep voting in anti-gay laws. Suck it breeders.

/I have no idea what I'm trolling here.

Maybe this was God's way of focusing attention on the economic and social woes of Nigeria that cause this type of behavior to exist.

I love it. A fool and their money are soon parted, and they richly deserve it. It's one of the few punishments for being an idiot we have today.

If you have a half million to piss away, feel free to send it my way.

Don't listen to him EvilEgg. I am a Super Model and would love to spend some quality time with your money you, maybe even take it to the next level and get married.

christianmingle is the best place to scam people.

they act so trustworthy in the false belief that they are communicating with other christians who would never-ever scam other christians for profit or anything bad.

Maybe, one day, we will evolve to the point that Christianity will no longer be seen as an automatic character reference.

2014-01-16 09:27:34 PM  
Sounds like she's the luckiest dumbass on the planet. If the article is correct ( and if I read it right) the authorities arrested the scammer PRIOR to him withdrawing the money. If that is the case there is a good chance she'll get it back.

If it is the same God that is in the Bible, it is well documented that he is kind of an asshole.

I'll pretend to be the OBGYN for less than half that.

Not so CSB:

My ex-wife met the guy who ended up molesting her 12 year old son over a period of months on Christian Mingle.

I do feel sorry for the woman. I don't feel sorry for Xtianmingle, though.

On MuslimMingle they make a date with you then kill you for being a dating whore and shaming your family.

If I don't agree with someone having a religion then it's funny she got harmed.  Ha ha!

He told me he was 18. And it wasn't a molesting. It was a massage.

God was never truly in play. The proprietors of ChristianMingle.com are using His name like the moneychangers did...and we know what happened when Jesus found out about it...

Maybe you should join so you can "find God's match for you."

It's a racket that preys on vulnerable people.


But enough about Christanity, what do you think of the dating website?

A good friend of mine from law school's father was a former Methodist Minister- he had retired from the job after about 30 years and deciding that he really couldn't bring himself to believe any of it (the bible) and was an open agnostic.  His piece of advice to me, gained in his 30+ years in the ministry?:  If you meet someone and within that first meeting they bring up the fact they are a "Christian" be prepared to lock up your wallet because they are going to try to get into it somehow.

Former long time girlfriend had a brother and wife who were screwed over of about $30,000 by a con-artist in their small town fundie church (as part of a real-estate scam).  When I, as an attorney, brought up the various means of recovering their money (from suing to bringing charges) they completely shut me down.  They had already decided that the lost money, which was all of their savings accumulated over 5 yrs, wasn't worth any harm that would come to their church as a result of taking all of this "public."  So the guy kept going through church members until he had swindled another 5 or 6 and then packed up went down the road to attend a different church, were presumably there were more gullible marks to choose from.
