I feel like communicating with you, my name is Miss anita, single by marital status, It is my pleasure with due respect to cultivate a healthy friendship with you with since i was impressed with you profile. I have great interest in making new friends, my hobbies are reading, traveling,swimming and dancing. Today i found your profily in (www.weliveinbeijing.com) then i took the opportunity to write to you as i really want us to be good friend Hood friends, and I will appreciate it if we can can be great friend. I will send my photo at least for you to see who is writing to you.I will like you to contact me back,(anitadeby68@yahoo.co.uk) so"</p> <p>This are auto generated messages made by bots (kinda like a robot) and it's function is to recollect email addresses for future spaming (send advertisement by email)</p> <p>Anyways, sometimes they are not so obvious and they are hard to catch, but once you reply or give them your address, you'll be SPAMed a bit more than usual. What I'm trying to say is, wait a while and chat a bit before handing your email cause it will save you some trouble of deleting unwanted email.</p>

    Had anyone had the experience of random people talking to you on Skype, and asked you to add him/her? What can they achieve out of that?
