I joined this website about 2 1/2 years ago, and I enjoyed it. Ultimately, I met my wife on it! So I guess we are one of the ultimate success stories for the site.
Sure, I heard from lots of scammers, mostly from Nigeria and Ghana. It's pretty easy to identify them, though. First, if they send you photos that look like a professional model, you can be sure it is not the person who set up the profile. Second, I never even ONCE asked for nude photos (I am a gentleman and I respect women, regardless of where they are from) but some of them sent them to me anyway, without my asking. A few other women made sexual comments during chat sessions. I dropped all such women immediately. Third, if they make any comments about needing help with a bank transfer, cashing checks or money orders, or anything else even remotely related to money, it's a scam and I dropped them immediately.
I was very particular in what I was looking for. I wanted someone attractive, modest, Christian, aged 24-29, with a Bachelor's degree at least (and could prove it). After about 9 months of searching and chatting, I found Mekedes, a lovely young woman in Ethiopia. After we communicated for about 6 months, I went to visit her in Addis Ababa, and 6 months after that we got married. Soon we will celebrate our first wedding anniversary!
So, AfroIntroductions.com can work if you make a specific checklist of the qualities you are looking for in a mate, you learn about how to spot the fakes and gold-diggers, and you are willing to spend some time in chatting and getting to know people. I had a lot of fun with AfroIntroductions.com and I kind of miss it now that I have closed my profile. But now that I am married, it wouldn't be good of me to keep writing to other women when I am no longer available, would it?
