Just delete any message you receive with wording like this:

i saw your profile today and became intrested in you,i will also like to know you the more,and i want you to send an email to my email address so i can give you my picture for you to know whom i am.

OR like this: As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Bank in AFRICA. I will also issue you an authority letter that will prove you the present beneficiary of this fund. I want you and the church or the organization to always pray for me because the lord is my shephard. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian.

And also like this:
"Congratulations! You have won a lottery! Contact us for further information (or send your details)...bla-bla-blah…"
When I've first received such letter I got really frustrated as I knew – it's just spam or even fraud…but the thought of winning great sum of money , heh…Frown But after 10 such letters every day you'll learn how to ignore themLaughing 

But… Sometimes Ebaby! members send really weird messages Laughing Some of them obviously aren't spam – just great personality and originality LaughingLaughingLaughing (Blockey – if you read this – that's what I meant under extraodinary people who are the "things" I like the most Wink )

Don't ignore? But what can you do? Well, I agree that you can report your antispam system… But NEVER try to answer it!!! In this can you'll be automatically put in their lists and receive many more such letters …

I don't know how to solve this question fundamentally.perhaps don't ignore it is a best way.so,what can we do for another way?

Laughing2 Popi: Yeah, lucky you! I can understand you.

Once I received a letter from so-called Princess of Cuba who asked me to help her to transfer big sum of money. Well, very common fraud – they send you soppy letter about poor but very rich children (princes or kids of some political figure). Then they ask your bank account (in order to "share with you their heritage"), and if you're stupid enough to tell them – they just rob you. Anyway, I hardly resisted the temptation to tell her what do I know about political situation in Cuba and its "Royal Family" (hahaha) or maybe even tell her that I'm in just the same situation - poor child of belarussian King Tongue out 

But really, it could be dangerous… Luckily, if you don't give out your personal information - only one thing they can do - just bombard you with spam letters. Though it's unpleasant too…
