A Portuguese-speaking lady called Soraia Costa has been in touch with me.
She has dropped me a line via Dropbox. Unfortunately I can’t speak Portuguese so I’m not quite sure what I can help her with.
Soraia shared an image with you!
Sou a Soraia, tudo bem ? Encontrei seu email na web e deixo uma mensagem rápida, só para dizer e que estou online todos os dias
Vem ver-me na webcam, adoro umas conversas sem limites e com pessoas desconhecidas….
Até já ;)
Deixo aqui uma surpresa… espero que goste…
PS : até posso entrar com uma amigas…
Clicking on the link to the image she has published on Dropbox doesn’t offer much more in the ways of a clue, unless – of course – she is trying to find someone who can take better photographs.
I mean, look at it – it’s terrible! They’ve completely cut Soraia’s head off…
Google Translate suggests that she found my email on the web, and that’s why she has dropped me a line.
Well, if she’s contacting everybody whose email address she finds on the web, she must be one busy lady. Perhaps that’s why she hasn’t got dressed properly and maybe it even explains why she doesn’t show her face in the photograph (perhaps she hasn’t had time to wash her hair?)
Soraia – if that is her real name – goes on to explain (via Google Translate) that she would love to chat on her webcam with me.
I’m online every day
Come see me on my webcam, a love without limits and conversations with strangers ….
I hope she’s not too offended, but I think I’ll give that a miss. Unfortunately spammers and scammers have made me skeptical about the online world, and I’m cottoning on to the fact that I should be a bit more wary online.
After all, if this Soraia *is* a spammer – the very worst thing you can do is help her fund a new wardrobe by signing up for her naughty webcam website.
It’s frustrating that Soraia sent such a bad photograph with her message. Because a quick Google search found someone else called Soraia Costa, but it’s hard to tell if they’re the same person.
Here she is in a (very odd) video:
I find it hard to believe that the woman larking about in this video feels the need to email random chaps like me on the internet.
Take care folks, and don’t be lured in.
PS. What a shame that Dropbox allows me to flag content as copyright-infringing but not report other forms of abuse.
