Somebody on Zillow likes me…or maybe they don’t

Somebody on Zillow likes me…or maybe they don’t

It popped up in my inbox this morning- nestled between my daily political updates, notes from a few friends, emails from tenant prospects and a few pieces of junk mail.  Yes, it was a love note from a secret admirer- Lizzy:

New Contact

lizzy ( is contacting you about a property on Zillow:
Hello, Its my pleasure to write you after going through your profile at and developed a deep and much interest to contact you for a good and lovely relationship, please i will like you to contact me through my email address ( for easiest and more communication so that i will explain to you further about me and also give you my picture, and i believe with my writing to you that this message will reach you in good atmosphere, i am expecting your respond to my email address, ( Lizzy.

Lizzy sounded like a wonderful lady- her English wasn’t the best, but I could overlook that in a woman with such a great heart.  She seemed to have enjoyed reading my profile- and seemed really anxious to get to know me better.  I thought “My prayers have been answered!”

She’s already aware of my job- so my long hours won’t bother her.  She mentioned something about her message reaching me in “good atmosphere”- which I took as her hoping today’s Florida weather was nice and that she was concerned for my overall well-being.  A great gal, this Lizzy must be.  And lastly, she’s ready to send me a picture- so she must be a real hottie!

Things aren’t always as they seem, though- and my Lizzy bubble was burst pretty dang quickly when I did a bit of research into this Lizzy person.  It didn’t take much, either- just a simple Google search using her email address that yielded 5,160 results and a sinking feeling that “Lizzy” wasn’t what she claimed to be.

Oh, well.  I knew it couldn’t last.  I’ve always heard that you have to be really careful with those Zillow girlfriends- and that they rarely turn out well, anyway.  Maybe it’s for the best that Lizzy and I have already parted ways- before I ended up resembling a word hidden within Lizzy’s email address itself:

Somebody on Zillow likes me…or maybe they don’t
