Myspace spam?

I opened a myspace account back in febuary after reading about it on this board. I never did much with because I really didn't find the place all that interesting to tell the truth. Well I went to check back on it last weekend and noticed that I got an e-mail.

Hola,

I'm Kristen, I'm using my friends account right now. I Dont have one yet. She is showing me how addicted to this site she is, I'm thinking this is fun. I really enjoyed your profile page. You seem to share some of my interests. I say we get to know each other better.

What do you like to do for fun?
What is your ideal first date?
Do you travel much? Where?
I want to see more of you, do you have more pictures? I can send you some of mine.

A little more about me: Since this is my girlfriends profile, you can reach me at my email is, ************************.

I'm newly single, 5 months to be exact. I'm 21 years old. 5ft. 6in. tall. I have blond hair and I go to the gym 5 days a week, so, I'm fit, and toned. My best feature cannot be mentioned here, so I'll just say my eyes, they are blushish in color with some green tint in the light.

Well, I guess that is enough info for one email, I don't want to ramble on...

I look forward to hearing from you.

*Kristen*

It sure looks like spam to me but I would think that if someone is spaming that they could get their account closed or whatnot. Should I report it or e-mail her?

I say e-mail her. People are always how they describe themselves on the internet.

It is probably spam, though maybe not. I got a few from women at some site, though I've also gotten messages from legit women, so I guess it is a crapshoot.

Within in my first wk I had someone sending me links to her "webpage." I've gotten two since that were wanting to be friends, both were trashy sluts.

So yeah, expect it.

How hard is it to set up a myspace account that you would need to use someone else's? If it's not spam, then she is an idiot.

Yeah, get those all the time, especially if your on late at night... use the 'flag' option on the message to mark it as spam.

Apparently, this girl doesn't think I'm worthy. I think you should report her as a child molester.

Screw you, Kristen!! I hope you burn in hell!!
