    I wouldn't click on the link myself but at the same time I did wonder what type of scam this may be, if any.

    Not sure other than a link might just install some kind of trojan or something. They appear to be customized for the "victim" with their name on it so the scammer seems to be working from a previous potential victim email list.

    the tipoff to the love scam

    The way the scam works is to get you to go to some legitimate looking site to find a picture of this "secret admirer". Supposedly you have to "join" and they request a credit card. THAT's the tipoff... the statement that this photo site may want you to enter a credit card # (to "prove you're over 18""you don't have to join") is so bogus. You enter a credit card number and it's sent, not to a legitimate photo site, but to the scammer's e-mail, and they can use it fraudulently.

    Scammers totally suck.
