Are there any other details you wish to share? Anything you say may help prevent someone else from being scammed.: They were very pushy with getting me into a google chat. Told me they were from Japan and visiting the US. OKCupid profile was clearly (in hindsight) a scammer, having been poorly built and asking questions that they didn't have to since the answers to said question were a part of my profile.
