Clifford Jefferson, suspected scammer

Tagged is a social website. But I suspect there are many people using this website to con people. We call them scammers.

On June 20, 2010, when I was on Tagged, one guy by the name of Clifford Jefferson. (52 years old) sent me a message asking for my personal particular which include my e-mail because he has a business proposal to make.

I replied and asked him what sort of business proposal and he replied on the same day at 11:54:30 AM with the following message:

CAN I GET YOU INFORMATION AS I STATED ON MY PREVIOUS MESSAGE,SO THAT I WILL SEND YOU A COMPREHENSIVE AND DEATAILED INFORMATION ABOUT THIS BUSINESS PROPOSAL.HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON.

Blogger’s comment: Can I get your information and he said Can I get you.

I replied and gave him my e-mail address telling him to send the proposal and if I like it, I will give him my particular.

This Clifford guy replied on the same day at 12:25:34 PM as follows:

THATS OK.I'LL GET BACK TO YOU SOON.PLEASE TRY TO CHECK YOUR EMAIL FOR MY UPDATE.HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON.THANKS

Blogger: You know what. I was hoping to get his business proposal knowing that this guy might be another scammer. I came back and check my mail. There is no proposal. I checked Tagged on Clifford’s profile. He is gone. In case you wanted to see how his look like, I have saved his profile picture in my computer. He has deleted his profile completely from Tagged. I have encountered several cases of this nature. Next time when you received a message from a suspected scammer, you just saved his picture in your computer.

I don't know whether he is a scammer or not, but that is the way they operate. They will ask you for your personal particular and they will send you a business proposal which you feel like cannot resist and when you respond, you will fall into the trap.

Clifford deleted his profile might be because he felt that I also knew his intention so he does not want to take risk otherwise he might get caught.
