    I get 'someone you know fancies you, contact our dating service to find out who' all the time. Either its a blindingly obvious scam, or 'someone' is being very persistent.

    I've been getting this message to my hotmail account (3 of them all on the 30th of August at 13:08, 13:08 and 13:10):
    Someone from Pictari wants you to be in our online community!

    Check out Pictari.com, it doesn't take long.

    See you soon,

    Pictari

    Is this a scam? Don't think I'll be joining somehow (if someone does want me to join then they can ask me themselves).

    Its a scam. I've been getting it for over a year, since I first got my phone - a couple of mates have got identical messages. A real person would have given up or made a different move by now, rather than spending money on something that was obviously being ignored.

    Haha, well i say its a scam, but i've never actually phoned it back...try if you want - it might be genuine, you could be really pissing someone off who is actually trying to contact you

    LoL! Would be funny if someone really was trying to contact you .

    Most likely to be a scam though. :rolleyes:

    had abt 15 of those in the last week :mad:
