Many women here on AMD profile themselves as Native American. However, when asked about their heritage they change the subject asking for your private contact info, where they then will ask for your credit card number to "verify your ID".
Hmmm. I always interpreted this tactic as someone from overseas, who didn't understand
what the idiom "Native American" implied, but rather took it to mean "born and raised in
America". To me it was a sure sign of a scammer who was unfamiliar with American
patterns of speech. The request for a credit card number, etc., would be verification (to me,
anyway) of this scheme.
(Um, I found it hard to read this post while keeping a straight face. If I'm missing a joke
somewhere, well, egg on MY face... )
