My wife uses Facebook.
I know, I know. I’ve told her. But does she listen to me? No, of course she doesn’t.
She’s even listened to the rather wonderful podcast I recorded all about quitting Facebook, but still she finds it hard to cut the umbilical cord to Mark Zuckerberg’s data harvesting monster.
Anyway, in a real-life conversation with someone last night she happened to mention that she had once received a very strange proposal from an Egyptian man via Facebook Messenger, with a unique style when it comes to chatting up his scam victims.
I asked her for a screenshot, and here it is…
Hello, dear slave, I am Hisham from Egypt, I want to marry a British woman, I have loved you so much when I saw your beautiful picture, do you accept marriage to an Egyption, you are really very beautiful, thank you very much, please communicate please, I long to see you and hear your voice.
I’m currently haggling.
