Hello sexy

I AM MIKE 51YERS FROM KY........................
I am a man that is in need of real and perfect love,
I need a man that can take me through, see ,
I have been hurt so many times by different woman and wouldn't want that to happen to me again.....
thats the reason why I said that I need love....
I am far from a millionaire and am not out for anything but love from someone.
Having someone that loves you and supports you in your life through
good and bad times and won’t give up on you is what I am looking for.
Honesty and trust are what makes a relationship work. I prefer to watch a movie or attend
the theater rather than read a novel. I also enjoy travel, experiencing different geographies and people.
I do not smoke.I do drink on social occasions. . and i do travelto india w/africa to get , right i am in west africa and right now i am in west africa 4 ANTIQUES and i will be coming back to state soon
distance is not a problem..if i find the right WOMAN..i dont mind relocating...
i have relocated before when i was in love..i dont mind during it again as long as i find
the right woman..
and i wouldn't mind if we could exchange mails or proberly have a
chat with you on any of the following email addresses below..hope to hear from you soon
(make_honest02@yahoo.com.)...............THANKS

Joyce: Did you send them?
Joyce: You did!
Mike: no i didn't
Joyce: I know what you're doing now
Joyce: and it's too late
Joyce: The money orders are on their way

Mike signs off quickly, apparently to try and stop the stolen / fake money orders from being sent.

I don't always post these things, but I sometimes send follow-ups to scammers to see if they blocked me, and to possibly coax them into doing something else stupid.  I had no intention of posting this, but a recent event made it necessary...


James (1/26/2007 12:10:14 PM): I legally have to tell you this, but I'm publishing all of your info in my book.
James (1/26/2007 12:10:58 PM): I was wondering if you could please send me one more money order?
James (1/26/2007 12:11:49 PM): I don't want to cash it.  I just need a visual for the chapter about you.
James (1/26/2007 12:12:29 PM): I should have scanned your original money order before I cashed it
James (1/26/2007 12:12:41 PM): Thanks in advance!

Mike apparently blocked me, but our paths would cross again.  Click here to read my transcripts with Capprin Landrum.  Capprin is not Mike Embs, but there is a Mike Embs connection.
