I don't know if this is done already, but it might be a good idea to scan users for excessive use of the email functionality.
Maybe hold emails for 10-15 minutes before sending and, if a user appears to be bulk-mailing, don't send any of the mails held.

Oh, yes - Google says that this Angel Dioh person visits different sites and sends the same type of an e-mail all around.

So - it appears that you are just one of many.

Right; probably her father was murdered, she had fled the country and now needs your bank account number to save that money.

My advice: ./fa/4568/0/ (i.e. forget it; let your first reply also be the last).
