Fake US Soldiers Robbing Women Online

By October 24, 2011

Follow me on:

r is for robberThe U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command (CID) warns that women in the U.S. and around the world are being scammed by persons pretending to be U.S. Soldiers serving in Iraq or Afghanistan, whose promises of true love only "end up breaking hearts and bank accounts."

According to CID, the pretend heroes sink so low as to be using the names, ranks and even pictures of actual U.S. soldiers - some killed in action -- to target women 30 to 55 years old on social media and dating web sites.

"We cannot stress enough that people need to stop sending money to persons they meet on the internet and claim to be in the U.S. military," said Chris Grey, Army CID's spokesman in a press release. "It is heartbreaking to hear these stories over and again of people who have sent thousands of dollars to someone they have never met and sometimes have never even spoken to on the phone."

According to Grey, the scams typically employ romantically worded requests for money to help the fake "deployed soldier" buy special laptop computers, international telephones, military leave papers, and transportation fees needed to keep the "relationship" going.

"We've even seen instances where the perpetrators are asking the victims for money to 'purchase leave papers' from the Army, help pay for medical expenses from combat wounds received, or help pay for their flight home so they can leave the war zone," said Grey.

Victims who ask to actually talk to the fake soldiers are told the Army does not allow them to make phone calls or that they need money to "help keep the Army internet running." Another common thread, according to Grey is for the "soldier" to claim to be a widower raising a child on their own.

"These perpetrators, often from other countries, most notably from West African countries are good at what they do and quite familiar with American culture, but the claims about the Army and its regulations are ridiculous," said Grey.

Report Them: All forms of financial fraud, which is exactly what these fake, "love for money" soldiers are trying to pull, can now be reported through the StopFraud.gov website: http://www.stopfraud.gov/report.html

While the Army CID offers a complete list of what to look for in these scams, the best advice is: Never send money! Be extremely suspicious if you are asked for money for transportation costs, communication fees or marriage processing and medical fees.

"Another critical issue is we don't want victims who do not report this crime walking away and thinking that a U.S. serviceman has ripped them off when in fact that serviceman is honorable serving his country and often not aware that his pictures or identity have been stolen," added Grey.

NOTE: No branch of the U.S. military charges service members money for permission to take leave. Leave is earned, not purchased. As the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command recommends: Never Send Money - "Be extremely suspicious if you are asked for money for transportation costs, communication fees or marriage processing and medical fees."

In addition, be very suspicious if the person you are corresponding with wants you to mail anything to an African country.

Where to Turn Them In: If you suspect or know you have been victimized by a fake soldier scammer, you can report the incident to the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) at http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx.

Please read the entire set of recommendations from the U.S. Army at: http://www.cid.army.mil/romance_scam.html

Also See: Military Removes Online Personnel Locator Services
Out of a concern for the safety and privacy of their servicemembers, all branches of the U.S. military have removed their web-based, online personnel locator services.

Update: Some Things to Remember
Remember that some -- maybe many -- of these online thieves may be illegally using the names of real soldiers. Just because, for example you find out that "Sgt. Joe Doaks" is a real soldier, it does not mean that "your" Sgt. Doaks is the real Sgt. Doaks. Also remember that there is no guarantee that a real soldier cannot also be a real thief. Your online military friend could be a real soldier, using another real soldier's name to scam you. Bottom line is, be extremely careful in any online relationship, and be especially suspicious of anyone you have never met who asks you for money.

I used the MWD, military working dogs site and found a soldier that was in Afghanistan, who had a dog working with him, and needed a dogbed and some hard rubber toys for the dog which I was willing to get for the dog and send but wondered if I was doing the right thing, and if this request was legit. How could I find out before sending anything? What is a good site to find legit requests on ? I hope you can give us readers the right direction. Thank You.

The dogs live in kennels and the military buys toys for the doggies. If you want, go ahead and buy the dog bed and toys and send those, but never money. It might be worth the laugh to see the con get a dog bed and toys!

Well the only people that could actually pull this off so well could only be ex-soldiers. I used to work as a cop, so I could probably fake better than anyone being a cop.

Hello everyone !
So , I am in contact with a man who is supposedly a soldier and he is deployed in Kabul. We´re exchanging emails and chatting through yahoo messanger. At the beginning ,he seems very honest , he sent me some photos , including with his daughter…. and , I must confess , he touched me . But , I know , also , there are a lot of scamers in this Internet world , and I started my research ,I could not find anything about him, he looks like a ghost! So , I did a search of your IP, surprise ! It´s from Nigeria.
I still in contact with him to get more information and yesterday, he told me about the holiday …. said that only I could ask for, it will even send me the contact email. He also acresentou another point, the holidays are divided into 3 parts and each has its value: 24 weeks: $ 5,000.00 USD 12 weeks: $ 4,000.00 USD 6 weeks: $ 3,000.00 USD \
I’m not stupid, I’m worried because he had so many photos, including one child! How could he have achieved, surely one of the photo does not know what is happening and the child?
what should I do? report to whom?

Hi that’s why I’m on here too I had a man from Kabul tonybrooks and hes saying his daughter needs a operation and the doctors wont operate without money up front and sent me a picture of his daughter. What A joke they must think were stupid. How do you find out where there located? Seems these guys are so stupid I think ill ask for his rank and id number next and see what he says.lol

(9) Sel says:

WOW…that’s all I can say..yep, been there did that until…he asked for money…which put a red flag up…so I started asking questions (my brother and father were both in the millitary…can’t play games here) ask for rank…oh he’ll give you a rank..E-7 SFC or something like that…but then ask him what division, and you get blasted, about why so many questions..hello moron, that’s not top secret ask if he’s infantry, artillary, calvery…get blasted more..at that point cut it off..if you can’t give me simple information like that…you’re not real, not to mention…a real military man serving his country wll not ask for money. They have pride. Just my two cents.

I’ve been chatting to soldier in Afghanistan for 10 days. His name is “Morgan Samuel Lingo”. Must admit I did smell a rat immediately but actually got wrapped up in the fantasy of being involved with a US Army soldier. What a sob story this guys has. Within days he sent me a web page link – a beneficiary page, where you have to apply for his leave and pay X amount of dollars. So happy I did my research and thank god for this group. I only have one nastly word for them, which cannot be repeated on here.

I recently was chatting with a Morgan Samual Lingo, but he stated he owned an oil company named samoil.UK…we chatted for a few months , I remained sceptical through out this time. He promised to come visit but something always came up and he needed to go out of town. Then the scam was confirmed when he asked for $1000 to help pay luggage fee for samples. Ummmm pretty sure the owner of a company has money lol….he did send me several pics, wonder who they are of for real

i met a military man about 3 weeks ago, he was a major with a pyscology degree and station in kabul afgani. the 4th day he was so in love and wanted to marry me, but he was very scretive, everything i ask was 1 answer, he been divorce for 5 years, he called me his wife and he said the LORD told him i could be trusted, i feeled for his sweet words because i am lonely, he ask for my address and yes i gave it to him, he sent me a dozen of roses, then thats when he told me he found 2 million and he needd somewhere to store it, i was very uncomfortable with that, i said no way,i never been in trouble and never will be, all he needed me to do is text the company where he is having the money held, so i did it, about 2am someone called me with a foriegn accent and said his name was mr. smith and he was holding the parcel for mr dean and the delivery charge was $2,500, of course i told him and he wanted me to open up a bank account with my money because that was the only way they accepted money, and he wanted me to deposit the money and he would pay me back once he get back to the states and i said no and he was very persistance and so was i, i didnt buldge so he said our relationship was over and yes his spelling was terrible to be a major, i also told him i knew alot about the military because my huband had spent 25 yrs in. he didnt know what an apo address was, so i feel like he’s new at the game, major calvin dean is his name.

I got a similar experience with U.S. military person deployed in Afghanistan whom I met via dating page http://www.balticbrides.com with virtual name Jameshonest from NY Bronx.48 years old. He has a blocked account on facebook too. I was touched by his personal story and love letters he wrote to me, we were exchanging e-mails for one month. As I’m working in the immigration field in my country, I was surprised by several facts as – his only son who has bad health condition due to the car accident in which his mother died is doing IT training in Nigeria and the fact that military persons serving in Afghanistan doesn’t have access to there salaries. He told me that his real name is James Henderson and his son is Paul Henderson. Some days before he wrote me that his son had some serious health problem and he needs the medication for 800 $. I’m still shocked and I don’t know what to think. As I have refused to pay he stopped to contact me. I also got many personal photos from the camp where they stay and I was almost certain that everything he says is true. I hope that I’m not wrong. I’m sorry for my mistakes.

(15) Donna Haynes says:

I too met a supposed soldier stationed in Kabul….met him via facebook 2 days ago then have been chatting via Yahoo Messenger. I too, was a little caught up in the fantasy of a soldier wanting to find his “soul mate” He too told me his wife and children were killed in a car wreck so besides the fact that I have a soft spot for a military man his story was heart wrenching. He goes by David Obray. He immediately started working on me by calling me babe, baby, my love, marriage, etc. Then he asked me to ask his commander to give him leave because I needed him home. Of course, the letter from commanding officer was horribly written, with terrible grammar and punctuation. It also asked for 500 to process the paperwork to get him home with the promise of me getting reimbursed when he got off the plane. Oh yeah, and he told me he grew up in Dallas then referred to his mother as “mum”. In Texas, a mum is a flower with school colors to be worn at homecoming. So when I asked what the money was for, he said processing the paperwork for his commander. But when I asked where to send the money the address was in the states and a civilian. I am sending you the name and address of the person hoping you can bust them. Marcia Smith Hart Troy, Ill 62294

(17) Deloris Aragon says:

I was a member of a dating website and got in contact with this “soldier” as with other people his grammar was horrible and supposedly he was a Col.. I was asked to send money for him to be able to take leave to come marry me after just two weeks of emailing. He even has his email stamped that they come from a military computer in Afghanistan to make it all believable. He got upset when I asked him for the policy number that he was stating that he was looking at that stated that the fiancee needed to request the leave and then send the money. I immediately started looking up the information and told him that I knew it was a scam and that I was not sending no money to him. He then disconnected our chat session. He was very convincing up until he asked me to send the money then kept saying that I needed to ask for his leave now.

He also sent me pictures.I would love it if Kelly could send send those pictures to me, just to see if this is the same person trying to scam me. So far he has not asked for money, and claims to love me, yet he has never met me., he even had me talking with someone that claims to be his daughter via video chat.

I have been chatting with a person who claims to be a US Army SSgt. I checked to see if I could find anything on him and there is nothing. I talked to a few friends that are in the Military and found out that everything he has told me is a big lie. The US Military does not make you pay a fee to get the soldier home. All real soldiers know this, we as civilians don’t have any standing with the armed forces and are not allowed to request leave for the soldier they must do it on their own. The person I have been chatting with claims to be in Kabul Afghanistan at Bagrum air base. He told me just after two weeks of talking that he wants to marry me and asked me to pay for a fee so he could go on leave for six months. I checked his IP number and it is not located in Afghanistan but it comes back to Ireland.This person is going by the name and rank of SSgt Adams Royce.

Hi,just been chatting with a so called soldier called Ricardo carlos Barboza.He was very secretive too.He finally answered a few of my questions but in one sentence said his mum and dad were alive and in the next sentence said they were dead.
His english is very bad bearing in mind he is supposed to be half American and Portugese.
He showed me a link to a bank account with a lot of money in it and wanted me to transfer money from it to get him on leave.
Told me he loved me after a week and wants to marry me.
Been leading him on but he is very convincing indeed.
Had photos sent to me also.
He is either telling the truth or a bloody good liar.

I am floored. I began reading all of these and was hoping like heck I didn’t see his name and low and behold–Alison #26–there it was Ricardo Carlos Barboza aka Ricky! Oh yes, been talking for a month–yes, wants to marry me too. Imagine that. Mom, father, wife, daughter all deceased. 9 yr old son in the UK with a nanny–From MI–he says–OH he is good too! I searched everywhere and could not find a darn thing on this guy and then BINGO–Well he didn’t get any money from me! Oh but he asked and I told him NO right up front, but he continued to be in love–He is very familiar with what is going on in Afghanistan too. I just wonder what good looking handsome soldiers photos he sent to me. If we are wrong, then God be with him, but he isn’t going to get 2 wives here! If he is a fake, which it sure is sounding like it–then I hope he gets what he deserves!

August 22, 2012 at 4:57 pm
(31) Donna Roach says:

Mr. Ricardo Carlos Barboza has been listed on 80 sites. He is a scam! I have done more digging Alison. I accused him of living in Nigeria and low and behold he had to leave afghanistan and go on a 10 day mission. He is GOOD–very good at telling you he is in love. and like I said–the poor handsome soldier that he stole the pics from is gorgeous. He didn’t pick an ugly solider at all. I am turning him in and reporting him wherever I can–HE IS BUSTED! I have flagged his profile on the dating site and I will NAIL him!

August 22, 2012 at 5:22 pm

I am currently chatting with a “US Army Soldier” currently stationed in Afghanistan. It has only been a couple of days and he is already asking me for money to complete a request of leave. All this since he has already had his leave in February. His leave in February was only for 2 weeks but he can get up to 9 weeks to meet and get to know me. I am finding this very suspicious. He is using a yahoo messenger ID JohnMarkforcare. I am a single mother of 3 and have no means of helping him. Nor would I if I did. I just can not believe these men would pretend to be a soldier. Soldiers are HERO’s.

i know what you mean. I recently met a man on badoo.com a dating site, here in canada. his name is ronny smith and is supposed to be a soldier in the us army deployed in afghanistan. I was suspicious from the start because my sister had been had this year by someone, so i asked the name of his platoon and where exactly was he stationed in afghanistan. I also asked a legitimate email address and told him i know for a fact that soldiers were allowed to receive mail. We were suddenly cut off and haven;t heard back from him. His email address he is using is sir.ronny02x@hotmail.com… Be careful! I told him that under no unceratin terms was i going to send him money or anything.. I knew better..

I’ve been receiving emails from a guy called “Reginald Matts” – whose email address is reginaldmatts@live.co.uk

He says he’s a doctor in the US Army, serving in Syria, and he says he wants to marry me and have me move in with him. Has anyone else received an email from this man? I suspect he is a scammer, but I don’t know for sure.

He sent pictures of his big house in Alabama, but I’m starting to suspect things aren’t in order, as I can’t find this address in normal directories. Does anyone have any ideas as to how to verify this? Should I stop contacting him?

i met a man that goes by the name Chris ( Brenton) Mcglone. i read all these posts and i am experiencing the same thing. He says he is stationed in Kabul Afganastan and has been in the US Army for about 6 years, is a widower with 3 kids and says some of the most amzing things i have ever heard. And of course we can’t talk cause they don’t have phones but we are chatting thru facebook and yahoo messenger. i cna not believe that there are people out there that would do that, and i like all the other women on here fell for his lies.. I did not send any money to him but was being pressured to send money so he could have his agent set it up for him to have a phone so we could talk. of course i brought up the idea for getting him a phone so we could talk but he is suggesting i send the money western union to his so called agent, Danielle Pierce and she will get it activated and send to him..man what a sucker i am

(41) Donna says:

I keep digging on Ricardo. He sent me the same photo of the boy that was injured in the hospital. I keep asking him questions. I got his military ranks and everything out of him. From Grand Rapids, MI–which I have found nothing. got his deceased wife’s name, his deceased daughters name, his mother and fathers name too. Where he is stationed in Afghanistan. I just wish that I could find a man in the military that could investigate all this information for me. There is a military scammer site and I have to find it. I have a friend coming home from Afghanistan this week and my cousin is in special missions over there, the same that Ricky claims to be–My cousin is digging. I will get this guy!
I wish that we could exchange emails–keep in touch Girl!

I was talking on Match.com to a person who I am sure is from Africa and he says his name is John Haggard. He writes like he knows English very well. Said he was in Kabul and a seargant in the army. He said he cannot call me because he is on a special mission with the UN. I searched his photo and found various other bios with fake names and him using the same photos which he has stollen. He also says he has an adopted son in Ghana which he adopted from an orphanage named William. Ladies — I believed him for awhile. Thank God my son researched this for me and we found he was a fake. If you are on Match.com beware as he is still on there. I also see him on my Yahoo messenger still, but he does not write to me. Will block him. BEWARE, we all want to fall in love, but not this way. Thank God I did not send him any money as we did not get that far. Scammers all of them!

Well I was recently contacted by someone claiming to be a U.S Soldier stationed in Afganistan, long story short I was in the U.S Army, and know that if a U.S soldier does not need money.
I Was asked by this sudo soldier to send money to Nigera but how is that lol when he is stationed in Afganistan, so I reported him to CID.
Saved all the messages ect, this happened on Facebook so word of warning someone you do not know tries to friend you ask how they know you grill them if you have to shoot, if you get a bad feeling that something is not right it usually is not, do the reverse and string them along until you get an address from them and then report their butt

Captain Michael Moreno Norcy – on Badoo dating site and pretending to be a US solider in Afghanistan. Yes I fell for it… using photographs of a seriously handsome soldier who is probably unaware his ID has been stolen and claiming his wife died giving birth to their 13 year old daughter. I stupidly gave my address, phone number, email and sent photos. Then he starts talking about wanting to take leave but that he doesn’t have enough to pay the leave charges… that’s when I decided to do a Google search on ‘US Army leave charges’ and realised just what a precarious position I had put myself in…. he has personal information of mine, even knows my pets names’… he could steal my identity. Fortunately I never did pay the $2,500 he was asking to be paid via Western Union. I feel so foolish and worried.

(56) Maxine says:

Patricia and any other women in the same predicament…. DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY. DO NOT GIVE YOUR PERSONAL DETAILS. These people are only after your money and your identity. If you have given any personal details then I would advise taking steps to ensure that you are alerted if anyone tries to apply for credit in your name.

These scammers are horrible people targetting vulnerable lonely women like you and I. They probably work as a team, and some of them are probably women! My scammer, Capt Michael Norcy, even got someone to phone me and pretend she was the wife of his friend – the call was intended to get me to believe Capt Norcy was a genuine person!

What frustrates me is the fact that I have advised the dating site, Badoo, that he is a scammer but his profile is still active and I can see he is on line all the time. I am concerned as to just how many women are falling for the lies – it is difficult not to as the photos being used are of an incredibly handsome solidier… probably the most handsome man I’ve ever seen!

Hello I have been receiving e-mails and chatting on yahoo messenger and facebook with someone whom calls himself Law Gerhard or Lawrence gerhard Kelvin supposedly a Capt in US Army Afghanistan he told me he loved me withing the first few weeks and later talked of marriage. he did not ask for money right away but then said he needed to trust me he had a parcel his friend in London was going to mail me had a large sum of money in it . So as a foolish woman who is lonely I gave him my address but no other information. he needed me to keep it safe for him until he got out in November to come home to me. Ha aa. I told him I would keep it safe and I would have. I am a good christian woman.. So he said his friedn would soon e-mail me with details he said I would not have to pay for anything and not to worry. So I receieve the e-mail with instructions and I e-mail this woman Betty Morgan from a gateway exprss site that says it’s in London and they say he paid 1000Euros but i had to pay the balance of the partial of 1.780 Euros I am fighting disability and he knows this. I sent him a message also forwarded the ladys e-mails to him. I told him I cannot pay this I have no money as I have told him this before. At first he sais hes sorry and He will try to pay it but has no access to cash I don’t believe him. Anyway then he got upset and told me I am a baby and no nothing then he said sorry again and it’s ok he still loves me etc…. Hes still sending me poetry love messges etc…. he did tell me they can barely make calls from Afghanistan due to the war but I did look this up and found out some can’t call and only have internet. I also was e-mailed by this Betty Morgan from the express where the parcel is and she said I had 48 hrs to pay and if there is anything in it that is susoucious I will be arrested. I didn’t even ask for the parcel Anyway there not in London I looked up the IP address and to my not surprize it was coming from Nigeria

Beware of Richard Monsanto aka Richy – pretending to be a US solider in Afghanistan. He is sending photos of his daughter and himself saying his wife died of cancer. He claims the daughter to live with his parents. When I asked which parent the story changed. He is asking for money to help get gold back to the states that he found on a mission. He wants large amounts of money. I did not fall for his scam. He quickly said he loved me and would call me his wife within 3 weeks of knowing him. I did all types of searches and could not find this person anywhere. I meet him on an dating site. I told him several times I never give men money ever!!!! Once he got the hint I never heard from him. Ladies be aware he is good, very good at tapping into your heart.

Hi Tracey, please don’t pay any more money at all, not for anything this man asks. From what you have said here in this forum he is very obviously a scammer. How many of us have heard the lines “But I am not talking to anyone else, I have been waiting here all this time to talk to you.” Of couse he/they get angry when you ask questions they don’t want to answer. Then they say you are making them sick/ill. The US Army would never get a civilian involved in making any applications or payments on behalf of one of their soliders. This man you are taking to, Sgt Patrick Schwartz, is trying to scam you again. Please protect your purse and your heart and cut ties with this imposter.

I have kept this individual talking to capture as much information as possible from them. I have emails that I have complete header information on. This individual is now telling me that his leave will cost a fee and hopes that I will help him come home to be with me. I am waiting for whatever else he can provide me with. Anyone out on dating sites need to really do their research. This can be very sad and emotionally challenging for us who have fallen in love and find out in the end we have lost everything.

i have been strongly befriended by this supposedly “leutenant” , who i met on Tagged, but like the other lady said, yougo back to their profile, and it’s deleted. Very handsome pictures are posted to get our attention. Yes, i fell for it, i started emailing, im-ing, chatting, and even gave my phone number. he asked me to buy his a satelite phone so he could talk to me. He told me he lives in Brandon, Fl, but one of his facebook accounts says he lives in kabul, afganistan. He said he has a 8yr old daughter, whose mom died giving birth, and he didnt like to talk about it. and said she is with his step mom and he thinks she doesnt treat the child right. i feel sympathetic after emailing for two weeks, so i gave in and sent $340.00 western union to get the phone so he could talk to his daughter mostly, instead of me. ok, he started calling, thanking me, said he talked to his daughter and she was happy to hear his voice, later he wants to take a leave but said that i need to request it, and i said would it cost anything and he said yes but he dont know how much, but he later said they say it was about $1480.00 and i said quote ” im NOT paying for anything else” and i didnt. You can call me stupid, you can call me a lonely old woman, but i know im neither one. I told myself, if this is real, then i made it possible for him to talk to his daughter, if he is NOT real, then i lost

$340.00 and my pride is not broken and i am not hurt because all the time i had this feeling that he was a scammer because he was TOO handsome. Im still on Tagged, but im alot smarter today than i was two weeks ago, lol. Fool me once, the jokes on me, fool me twice, not gonna happen. GOOD LUCK LADIES FINDING YOUR ”SOUL-MATE”

I am currently chatting with a “US Army Soldier” currently stationed in Herat Afghanistan. Ive been talking to him since May 2012 and after the first month he was asking me for money so he can get leave and come and see me, my friends were saying it wasnt right, there was me so naive i couldnt see it, i was and am falling for it. Now after reading all the other comments it feels like im being taken for a mug and finding this very suspicious now. He is using a yahoo messenger ID David Pelzer. I am a single mother of one and have no means of helping him. Nor would I if I did. I have given him my address, full name and set up a bank account for him, but i did go into the bank and say what i wanted it for and they said if you do a savers account he can put money in and he cant take any out which made me feel i could trust him. Could someone please help me and let me know if he is real or is one of these scams??? Soldiers are Hero’s and should be jailed for scamming us lonely women!!.

Been talking by text and email for a week. Email address – thomas_sand47@hotmail.com and the phone number he is texting me from is 248-690-5417. Says he wants to hear my voice but I have to fill out a form for a secure phone line. I get the form and it says the calls are free but there is a $250 administration fee per month……WOW!!! I am just sick about it!!

First my awnser to Carol
If you work 16hr a day and have 5 kids to take care by yourself you maybe understand how some woman fell so lonely, and don’t have time to socialize outside of their house or work
I am chatting with a guy he saying he are in peace keeping mission in Libya, and all details he send to me of locations and times are amazingly correct, and also send me photos of him with he’s daughter what I believe they are stolen photos from some really US soldier, and as a out of normal on scammers’ he not good looking but he’s charming and very romantic so I just get hooked on chats with him, but my bell ring something are not right when he ask me to send money to he’s daughter for her birthday, so I just tell him currently I don’t had any money available, he say it’s OK very sad cannot make a little girl happy on her 15 year , so the chat continue and next he say he really want came to my country to meet me, so I say OK why you don’t , and he say it’s a very difficult process to get out of the base and all he’s documents and money are in some agency in UK because of personal security , I was thinking OK we going again on the money story but I let the chat roll, so next he say finally he’s boss find a way for him to travel to my town, but I need sign some documents to receive he’s passport and documents from the agency in London and also so I need to pay a delivery fee
I say OK and currently I am waiting for documents to sign, I presume will be some kind of fake documents asking my personal details, which one for sure I will not send to him or any money
So lonely ladies like me please are alert as they methods are getting more and more sophisticates every day and it’s so easy get in love with their lovely words

I`ve been hit by 2 scammers the first said he is a reservist and when he called me sounded African. After asking him a few simple questions he got angry and cursed me and lost interest(I was married once with a US soldier so could ask specific questions)his name is Brian Chalmer???he is on Eligible Greeks Drillcore and us forces dating site as chalm123. On the Greek site he claims to be a reservist and working in the North Sea on a platform using read notify he opens his emails in Hatfield and passes them on to Manchester and his IP is in Ireland?????
the second Kingpin Seth is on tagged he claims to be a high ranking officer and once asked why he wears the uniform of a sargeant he claims it it camouflage to protect himself from the enemy???He then claimed that he is on a secret mission as a secret agent and only wears the uniform to blend in but is a spy for the US Government.But he tells me??Not very secret then is it!I`ve blocked both leaving them lost for words but did send them a good bye email calling them nasty scammers and how is the weather in Nigeria??As tempting as the reply might have been I decided to block before hand as I don`t fancy a virus send to me.

I had a sudden flock of military guys adding me on Skype and I thought it would be harmless to talk to them. I wanted to talk with them to let them know how much I appreciate what they do for our country and make them know that people care about them. After talking to a few of them I realized that these guys were scammers… all gave me the exact same story, they were working to make peace with other countries and all were widowers whose wives all died in a car accident and they were all raising a teenage boy alone. All were very interested in getting a relationship going very fast. All typed broken English like a foreigner would possibly type. So the last one I chatted with gave me the same story so I said it sure was funny that four guys gave me the exact story and how odd it was that they all found me and then told him everything I told him about myself was a lie. They all had a picture of a service man in uniform as their profile picture. Tonight I had another request so I accepted just to play a game to see if I got the same story. I told him that I was in the Army in Afghanistan and he called ME a scammer and cussed me out, then deleted me. I never videoed or talked on the phone with any of them..just chatted on Skype… I never told them any personal information either.. it is such a shame that these crooks are ripping people off, so sad…keep your eyes open ladies…

Every single guy gave me the exact same story. They all were widows, wives died in a car wreck and all were raising a teenage boy alone. All worked in the peace department, trying to make peace with other countries. They seemed very interested in a fast relationship. After so many of these I told the last one how strange it was that I have talked to three guys with the exact same life and how everything I had said to him was a lie because I knew something was up. Then I deleted them all. Tonight I got one more request and accepted because I wanted to play a game to see if I got the same story but I turned the tables. I told him I was in the service and he asked what service so I said Army and I said I was in Afghanistan (which every other guy was as well) so he called ME a scammer and cussed me out then deleted me as soon as he finished writing all those nasty words. All of these guys typed in broken English, just like a foreigner would talk… I never videoed or talked on the phone to any of them and never gave my email…I smelled a rat very fast.. these people should be ashamed, how dare they abuse the good name our service men and their integrity.. keep your eyes open ladies…

Then he loved me on the second day.Then the He wanted internet sex. I pretended this part.LOL He was gonna be with me soon. Then when the day came he couldn’t go till he payed for his ticket. I told him the military does not charge deployed soldiers to leave a war zone. He said he had to pay because it wasn’t a regular leave. He didn’t ask me for money. I didn’t give him a chance. I did tell him what a lying (##%^&^#@$$%^) he was. I then deleted him. I made a new profile friended him. got his four women friends that I knew were victims names. went on my old profile and messaged them and told them. Two left immediately and two stayed. I know he has a woman named Clara Bolton as a friend. This is what he sent pics to my email clarabolton 2020 forgot the@.He talked to me on my new profile . I could tell he suspected I was tricking him by what he said. Finally I told him I wasn’t gonna play with him anymore. I was bored..I had given him my phone number at the beginning but never my address or any money.I messed with him good. I kinda miss him or her or them lol. I hope they rot. I told them that too.

A very good looking man that said he was in the army over in Afghanistan found me on a dating site, his words where so sweet and caring. Said he had a 12 yr old daughter here in the states that he hired someone to take care of his daughter while he was gone. That he was an only child and that both of his parents where dead. He wanted to meet me when he came back to the states. Also said that he wanted to marry me, that he was falling in love with; that I was the kind of women that he was looking for. After a few day’s of chatting on line he asked me to help him get a military phone so he could call me. That it would be $500 to get the phone. He gave me an email address to request the phone & information from his commanding offer. Once I said I could not help him out he was very upset and never wanted to talk to me again. Said I didn’t want to help fight for our relationship.

(117) softness says:

Hello I have read all your stories and I realize that I am a victim of the scams that these men, pretending to be US Soldiers. I feel so very low right now. He told me he was in the army and he was stationed first in Patkantism and then he had to go somewhere else, now he says he is apart of Africa. He told me his wife died of cancer, and he has a daughter here in the states being raised by a NANNY he even went as far as to say his mother left his father at a young age and his father raised him alone, and he ended up in military school and from there to the Army. He sent all these pictures of himself. Now I see that this could be a soldier who maybe could have died. I am so very sad. In the beginning I told him I was someone online. He said it was okay, he would take care of me once he comes back home. He told that he did have charges that needed to be paid before he could come home. I did not understand. He said because his time was not up he needed to pay back the money because he wanted to leave. Again, I am telling him that there is nothing I can do. He said it is okay. Now he tells me to go and open an account at the bank, his commander is going to give him the money and he will repay him back once he gets back to the state. I know now for sure this is not real. I know he is a scam. But what I do not understand is how do these people get pictures of the soldiers and so many. I have sent him pictures and also have given him my mailing address. Something inside of me said this was to good to be true, but I really wanted to believe that he was real. I have his pictures on my computer but now I am wondering if this soldier is alive? or deceased and his name is being used to hurt innocent people. I went on the dating site because I wanted to meet someone. I do not understand how do they know who to choose. I must have an invisible tattoo on my forehead that says “SUCKER” I did fall for this guy. He played me well.

I too got wrapped up with someone, whom I thought was a Capt. in the Army, I was very lucky that I never sent this person any money, nor would I.

I did some research because I am very careful, I found the real person and contacted him to let him know what is going on.

I think we need to get the word out on our facebook accounts and warn all the single ladies. Also, do your research on strange men that are willing to offer you the world, but yet want money from you.

i met a guy in tagged claiming to be a UN army in Kabul, his profile showed that he was from New Castle, England. after less than a week of chatting, he suddenly claimed to be in love with me and told me that he trust me so much and would like me to become a mother of his kids, he was planning a lot of good things for me, he claimed to have a kid and separated from his gf just a few months ago, he seemed to be cool and promised to come here in Manila soon after his contract in Kabul that would be next month. He was asking me to look for a house worth a lot of millions, and he was encouraging me to think about a business to run. Yesterday, he told me that his father was a General and he was a sergeant. He said that his late father gave him the claims from the insurance worth a fortune and would be used for buying a big house with a pool. he was asking me to look for a house for us. I felt so overwhelmed but at the back of my head it was all too good to be true. something was not right. I still haven’t seen him on cam because he said everyone can view us on cam but he can try to call me on the phone. I wanted to believe in everything that he told me but also in doubt. How would i know if the guy was a scammer? can i send you the name of that guy , can someone help me check the guy’s identity?

I ran into this a lot with online dating. These guys all have the same story, I am in a foreign country and my son or daughter ‘s birthday is tomorrow. Can you send them some money for me? When I asked questions, they were fague. When I told them my brother was military intelligence they got off fast, dropped off the site. One such organization uses pirated pictures. So ladies, beware, usually they are extremely handsome men with pictures of their kids. Don’t be fooled, check them out. They will say they can’t send money, not true, etc. Too bad these people are doing this to our servicemen. I found out that most sites have a section where you can report these people and most of them are already reported!

(127) Sandy says:

I have been in contact with an army sgt stationed in Kabul, Afghanistan. He loved me right off and I was the right woman for him…..and it led up to him calling me his wife at times. I never thought I would fall for a scam like this but he really pulled at my emotional strings. He wanted a phone because he worked for the UN and it was very, very dangerous over there and that any mail sent to Afghanistan would be intercepted by the Taliban. That the Taliban had stolen his computer, ipod and cell phone. He worked in a secret hideout….At first I said no way, that I would l would send him nothing! The address he gave me to send stuff to Ghana, because that was where his commander would “pick it up” is: Nicholas Mensah, 207 Tomtom Street, Achimota, Accra, Ghana. He has now given me his Afghanistan address: A Co, 1-168th CAC TF Shadow APO AE 09354. He now has a cell phone which I sent to him and is using a magicjack sim card. He called me yesterday and left a message, he has an Australian accent. The phone number which he used has the same area code as mine…..interesting, considering the phone was sent to Ghana. His name is Thomas Jentner. He is very, very good looking. His spelling and grammar is not that of a sgt…..but I fell for it anyways. I stopped talking to him right after I sent the phone…..but he is relentless….so I am playing along for now. If anyone is interested in sharing photos let me know, or if anyone knows how we go about sending information such as this to the authorities that can help stop this please let me know……

Well, I read all this letters and I’m really scared. I was contacted in a dating site by three of these guys. One claimed to be a Col. After a week of sending me the most amazing love emails, I mean he could be a writer, immediately he was injured by a road bomb and for a week I knew nothing from him, suddenly he was out of the clinic and needed 5,000 US dollars to leave afghanistan. So I wrote him a terrible email accusing him of being a scam and still he had the nerve to answer back and say he was still in love with me. Can you believe that? He goes by the name of David Fleshman. The other one is called Chris wubbena, he said he would never ask for money from me, and two days later he needs 350.00 dollars for his vocational leave and the third one is called dommanski Clark and he even made me send an email, which he wrote, for his leave and it said I had to pay for some stamp. Seriously I’m a researcher and I never sent any money, but I enjoyed the scam while it lasted because they are very good at writing nice stuff. When they ask for money I block them, please be aware of this names and if you have been contacted by any of them be careful…

Thanks to this site too. I hope that the real soldiers reputation won’t be destroyed by those scum bugs. I hope that the real owner of the handsome picture that the monster is using will learn about it too.

After reading all these stories I may be in the middle of one of these scams. His name is Joseph Waldie and says he in in kabul Afghanistan and he is a captain in special forces.
Anyone hear this name before? We have been emailing through yahoo mail and sometimes on chat. He has not asked me for money, but when I asked him what his official army email address he said “that is classified information”. I don’t know if that is true or not. He writes beautiful emails, but there is a common thread that I’ve read in these posts. Men like this are despicable. I have received many pics from him of him and his mother and him with his son etc. I will keep it going and see what happens. I would love to catch one of these guys who prey on vulnerable women. It just pisses me off.

If you are given an MOS and the unit they are assigned, where can you go to check that information to see if its correct? Is there a military site that has a public listing? How can you check to make sure? Thanks!

Has anyone heard of a “Chad Conklin” or “David Crane” – both these people are claiming to be in the military too…The first guy after 2 months starting asking for $1500 for a satellite phone and $500 to help his stuggling sister in Africa…and they both have facebook accounts…just curious if anyone has heard these names…..the second person claimed to be in the Swedish Army but then claimed he changed to US Army and then wanted to come home and i get these leave papers from another person and they started to ask for bank account info and needing money for leave fee…totally LMAO as these are so fake…i reported them to CID and FBI – remember to report to US Military Criminal Investigation Division (CID) first and then file report with the FBI as CID will tell you do that next….

(146) Lray75 says:

Additional information from previous post:

“Chad Conklin” or “David Crane” – both these people are claiming to be in the military too…therefore the email addresses for these two are:

-Chad Conklin: cconklin224@yahoo.com
-Facebook is: http://www.facebook.com/chad.conklin.7

-David Crane: davely00@yahoo.com
-Facebook is: http://www.facebook.com/david.crane.3154

You can go to their facebook pages and see the pictures they have posted; i reported to Facebook that these were scam profiles to warn them; hopefully they are being blocked…if these two emails look familiar to anyone please report them….it’s so sad that pictures of real soldiers are being stolen for this purpose…

(153) Cindy L says:

I have just recently been in speaking to on fb with a so called soldier who was calling himself “nelson bravo” he shows him being 40 years old. It took me by surprise when he friend requested me but I chose to chat to him and instantly he said that he was searching for his soul mate and that I was that person.I thought it was a bit weird because he does not even know me. He asked me to join Yahoo messenger and I was like okay lets see what he has to say. It all started off sweetly. He then gave me a sob story about him losing his wife in a car accident 3 years ago and that he had a 10 year old boy,I was like okay and thought nothing about it until he turned round and said that he wanted me to be the mother to his child because he was frightened that he would get killed in Libya,that is where he said he was patrolling. I stayed chatting with the guy for a few days to see what else he came out with,and the next thing he said was that he wanted me to be his wife and would I be willing to fill out the form and put my personal details on it so that he could get 2 weeks leave and that I also had to send $200 dollars back with the form,I was thinking to myself yeah right. So what I did is I played along with it all. He then said that I do this he can then come to me in the UK,so I turned round and said to him what would happen next will the Army pay for your flight to the UK,and he turned round and said no you would have to pay for the flight.,I told him leave me alone and now he has. So yesterday I decided to post a message on on the site warning females about him,I then found his name again and looked at his page and I could not believe he was still on there. But I did notice that he had added another female yesterday,so I messaged her telling her what he is going to try and do to her and said that he has just tried it with me. I do not want her to go through all that and fall for his sick lies :-( .

Alarm bells really went off the last few days…my soldier friend wants me to send money to his kids in England. They are staying with his late wife’s family in Manchester…okay!
He has offered to give me a credit card. Money has been tight lately for me.
Something isn’t right..I was fine until the credit card thing came up…he doesn’t even know me. Why would anyone send a person they’ve never met a credit card..? red flag ?
He’s a sargent in the U.S. Army…he has pictures of himself and even his german shepard dog…
Maybe he’s for real and just a lonely serviceman but what if he isn’t ?

Here is the link for the type of “false documents” these bastard scammers are using:


Please take note of these false documents at this link and when you get one, report it to CID first then to the FBI; the FBI will then contact your State’s FBI division and they will then inform law enforcement in your area and you may be contacted to get more information; so keep the EVIDENCE and don’t throw it away or delete it – the more evidence you have the better your chances of a case.

Everyone out there, please take this seriously – our Military does not communicate in this manner and they never have and no US Military or US Government entity DOES NOT use or NEVER uses “yahoo” or “gmail” or any other email source for communications; they only and have always used “.mil” or “.gov” – these scammers are using “pay per hour Cyber Cafes” which are not held accountable for use and therefore not traceable.

So if you see for example: “ts.military@yahoo.com” (by the way the TS2 is a real scam – there is no such thing like this – this was mentioned above in one of the posts here above there).

Do not be fooled – and if you need to verify, contact or email the our US Military Criminal Investigation Division (CID) at: usarmy.belvoir.usacidc.mbx.usacidc-crime-tips@mail.mil – they are so helpful – thank God for our CID – they must be swamped with this stuff – it’s crazy! I can’t believe this is happening.

Protect yourself and your money!

Be safe out there.

Hi, I have been reading for a couple of days, and the more I read, I think that the major that I am chatting is one of them, his name is john ramos and he has not asked me for money yet as I told him before hand that I don’t have any’ however, he did asked to write an e-mail to request for his leave as I was his fiancee, so that he could meet me and also see his son, I agree to do it more for his “son
sake than mine and since I have been reading some of this type of scams I advised him that I did hope no money was involved, he said it was but that he will send me a check? for a minute I thought he might be legit; however, I read on here someone that a check from a bank of africa was sent, so I am trying to play along and see what happens when money is requested. I will let you know, in the mean time if this person johnramos880@yahoo.com has contacted anyone please let me know, I will greatly appreciate it. It really sad how these people play in our feelings for our soldiers. I do not have any hope that my guy is legit. He also writes sometimes with bad English but I thought he was just a bad speller :(

I too was scammed a couple years ago.Fell in love with a soldier online.Met him on mate1.He was a widower stationed in Kabul with a sick young son residing in Michigan with a nanny.He had no other family to speak of.We chatted on yahoo.He sent me love poems.After a couple weeks he needed me to send money so his kid could have an operation and he would pay me back when he got back to the states.Very similiar stories to the ones i’ve just read here..Anyway,just beware of any soldier going by the name Jeffery Armstrong,in case he’s still using that name.

careless have you seen him on skype on a cam and has he shown you any proof of who he is and where he is? most of the fakes won’t go on cam or talk on the phone. how long have you known him and how soon did he ask for money? my guess is he is a fake like most asking for money, just be careful.

Contacted today on Facebook by Smith Wolf – friended me on Facebook and when I asked how he found me he only said by my smile – I chatted with him for a bit and thought at first he was a solider just wanting to correspond with people back home. When he started to get personal, I told him I was in a long relationship with someone. In between all this I had a message from a young girl asking me quesitons because she saw this guy had tried to hook up with and he tried the same with her. We both decided to delete him from our Facebook pages before he got any further. Hoepfull that ended it and neither of us will hear from him again. Scary to think someone can get on your Facebook page you have no connection with.

Anyone heard of a Gary who is in Iraq sends flowers and chocolates on your birthday then wants you to look for the dream home He has $700k to spend on a house $150k on a car wants you to look for those and he will pay for them when he comes. He wants his airfare paid for and will pay back when he comes as he doesn’t trust banks because someone took 159k out of his bank and he does not trust Internet banking. Is this a scam?

October 28, 2012 at 11:34 am
(175) Donna says:

Yes Sue it is a scam if they want you to buy it and they will pay you back.. Have you seen him or talked to a live person? Be very careful and don’t trust guys online asking for money to be sent and pay you back. Even asking for tickets to be bought and sent is the same they exchange them for cash. There should be an online list to check some of these names since nothing else is being done.

You women are a bunch of desprate hags!!!! I am a female soldier and there is no way a soldier is asking for money on deployment for leave. First of all leave is earned. Second and we don’t pay for it. and SSgt is not Army rank, SSG is Army. So what if he says he’s in Afghanistan. You can Google pics that real soldiers post on the internet of some of the camps or FOBs.

You all are a bunch of money hungry idots, I’m glad you got ripped off. You all deserved it. Go get a job and stop trying to be a damned fat, desparate Army wife.

saralee you are missing the point. the guys are asking the females for money online and claiming to be soldiers. they are the fakes and are most definately asking for money to do things like take a leave, buy things help someone. also saying they can’t get in their accounts till back in the states. some women are that lonely to believe them and do it. thats why some of us try to spread the word they are fake. it sure makes it look bad for honest soldiers. the worst thing is these guys won’t go to jail or be stopped as long as they are not in usa.

(183) Hi I am Nora. says:

As many of you have experienced, I also found my handsome, US Army soldier on a dating site titled, Speeddate.com. We quickly moved from the dating site to IM Yahoo messenger, where we chatted. He was kind, gentle, loving and whenever I looked at the pictures of the very handsome soldier he sent me, I would melt. He used the name of Alexander Lamb, or militarybirdman@yahoo.com

Unlike the obvious, Alexander was a good writer…and I only found a few gramatical errors (past tense vs present tense). At first I thought I had hit the jackpot with this gorgeous, loving man. I continued to talk to him…foolishly, I doubted myself as to whether or not he was real. So, I continued to chat with him. 3 weeks into our chatting sessions, I began to ask him how far was Turkey (where he claimed to be stationed) from Afganistan. He answered 7 hours by car. What??? Are you kidding? There is over 2,200 miles of distance between them. I asked him for his US military address. He became upset, expressed his anger, but gave me a bogues address, which i tried, while chatting with him.The address came back undeliveable!
Of course, I called him out on his abusive game and told him that God was watching him and that I wished him everything bad that he deserved! It is sickning to know there are all these scammers out there using our Military Hero’s names and ID’s to rip off women! It is obsolutely, freaking DISGUSTING!!!

Women, please be aware. Many of these Scammers do much research on culture & military information, and can play a good game! Please do not fall for it!! I beg you. If you respect our Military men, who are fighting for our freedom, Please I beg you. Call these idiots on their game! They hate it…

(184) Donna says:

Nikki don’t let your mom fall for it. Asking her to send a money gram is giving him free money. I bet he didn’t set up an account and put money in it. If the person is real and really likes you for you they wouldn’t be asking for money they would have family or close friends deal with that if needed.

scammed you’re probably right men and women should be warned about it. Just seems like it’s mostly women having this happen to them. Everyone just needs to keep passing the information to family and friends to be super careful of anyone they don’t know asking for money for any reason.

Nora , Glad to hear you caught on before it got worse. The past/ present grammar is probably because he isn’t from USA and unsure when to use certain words. It’s very easy to bust these guys asking simple questions like what time is it or the temperature there. It takes 2 minutes to Google it and know what the answer should be and usually they don’t think to do that.

Stay on your toes ladies and help warn others !!!!!!

It is pretty sad that someone is claiming to be in the military to take from that give so much already. I am in the Military.
1.) medical is free for military members.
2.) anything for the job/mission is free.
3.) leave is earned(30days a year)
just like the above stated do not send money to these ppl.
Taxes payers already provide enough for us Soldiers and I am very grateful to you all. Soldiers will not ask you for anything because you do so much for us already. I want to say thank you for doing your part. To help us do are part.
Remember all Soldiers have a military email(ako).

(186) Bryanna says:

I was very fortunate in this situation. I had 2 scammers claiming to be military personnel. Sgt Marc Ballack and Col. Jon Lehr one I met on evow.com and MeetMe.com. The pictures posted can be of that person in the uniform, but chances are the person behind the screen not being them are very likely..I had noticed on both of their pictures one had the right last name and the other had a completely different name. when i questioned him about it, he claimed he was in secret ops.. ok first of all they cant tell you that information. One of the two men said above had another picture of a person on their profile claiming to be them, when I enhanced the picture… The name was something different. I was very lucky to have military knowledge, my father was in for 30 years and my ex husband was in for 20 years. I had the scammers ask for money,cell phones,banking account information. They claimed they found their soulmate in me, wanted to come home to marry me and take care of me. I got a laugh out of the phrase “I need money to come home to marry you, I promise I will pay you back.” First of all if they say they need money to get home, or that they need to leave because it is bad over there. Its total BULL!! I know first hand, if they signed up or volunteer to go over there. They are there.. If they leave before their time is up its considered AWOL. They do not need money to get home. I know they tell you everything you want to hear, but as the saying goes. “If it’s to good to be true,it probably is.” I know most people have no knowledge in how the military life is, it is sad that men try and take advantage of women like that. But I would honestly suggest that any and all of you post this site on your Facebook, blogs, anywhere you can to raise the awareness of this crime. Knowledge is power! And you could save someone from having this happen to them. Make the public aware of this site.. I wouldn’t want potentially good people getting hurt or violated by fake people!!

Somebody tried to scam me last week, really stupid of him as I had already told him that my late husband had been an RAF Officer. I have seen another 2 profiles on the same dating site. All claim to be widowed, and the age group they are looking for is a large range. HIs spelling and grammar was also very good. I found photos of the person whose military photos he had used really easily. Just went to google images, typed in the rank and surname he had given me, the real person came up straight away. The real person is now a Congressman, I’m sure he won’t let it drop.
If you are unsure about someone, do as much research as possible. They ask you lots of questions and answer little.
My son in law is in Afghanistan, so all this makes me mad to say the least.
Pass as many stories on as possible. Help our Heroes.

here one message he sending to me.

“Dear judith
I’m usually not the kind of person that would write a love letter, but I thought i’d do this for you because you are the most wonderful thing in my life right now. I know we’re far apart — you’re from Filipino and I’m from US — but hey, like I said, distance means so little when you love someone so much. I was just talking to a friend about you and explaining how you are on my mind 24/7. I can’t eat, sleep, walk, drive, or even work without thinking about you. You are in my thoughts all the time. I’d tell you you’re in my heart, but I don’t feel like that would be right, because my heart is not mine anymore — it belongs to you. You are sweet, loving, caring, beautiful, and you make me feel like one of the luckiest guys in the world. I need you to know I am with you through everything, the bad and the good. I’ve given you my heart and I hope that you won’t break it. Keep it and give it some loving from time to time. Remember when I promised you that I’d never let you down, that i’d never treat you bad, that I would share your joy and pain? I will promise all those things over and over again. Don’t worry about what other people say, I know how I feel towards you, and you know how you feel towards me, so just ignore them. I Hope you enjoy this! Happy New day……..i love u so much

That is message send it to me”

(195) Donna says:

Judith sorry to tell you this but he is more than likely yet another fake soldier. I’ve heard all the same excuses why they can’t use a phone or talk on a camera. Please don’t trust him and even more DON”T send any money for any reason. They give excuses on not able to get money from their account until back in the states to account is froze for some reason. The death and raising a kid are for sympathy and the I love you, miss you, need you is trying to win your heart but don’t fall for it. Read all the posts above and you will see similar stories. If he really loved you he would talk on the phone or have a way to talk even for a minute. It’s the service not prison. Ask simple questions like temperature or the time and Google it for where he says he is. I bet he doesn’t get it right and funnier to ask each time it will probably change. Best of luck and be careful.

I would suggest that if you can retrieve your Yahoo Messenger conversations and print them out, do it, any email conversations print out, any pictures if you saved them, I did (Yahoo Messenger saves typed conversations not photos or videos, so you must have saved them I did), get it together and on the behalf of the Soldier who has had his identity stolen get in touch with the base closest to you and go to the MP’s and tell them you need to report a crime as for a Special Agent in the CID Unit. Help our men, who likely are completely in the dark that this has happened to them.

Robin you made me laugh about the bday thing. I’ve had conversations with many different answers too. Simple questions is the easiest way to bust these fakes. Even as simple as a time they can’t get it right and can give excuses for wrong times also.

Both with pictures etc. Fortunately for me I know when it is too good to be true and broke off contact before they ever asked for a thing. Nick Dabney’s story was much like someone elses on here…widower, wife died of cancer, she lives in the UK with a family member. Parents are dead. Poor grammer etc. If its too good to be true…it is!!!

Elmita be very careful if you stay in touch with him. Those are all signs of a fake soldier only out for money.

It’s nice to see more women finding out what’s happening but there really are not many posts for how many are being affected.

Well, I was almost scammed by this guy on the dating site BADOO claiming to be a Sergent in the military stationed at Ft. Hood. He was posing as Christopher Wallace. Seemed real nice but yes, the first clue was how he wrote. But then he had a facebook page and asked me if I had a webcam because I wanted to verify who he was. Said he was going to the UK for two weeks but would be back and then we could meet. While in the UK, he asked me to send an email to a website requesting to speak to him. I felt uneasy but I did. Just sent my name. We spoke for a month and he claimed he loved me but that was a red flag also. After I received a response back from this webaddress, I knew it was a scam. unitedstatesarmylink2@usa.com. Asked me to send $300 to have a phone conversation and I will be reimbursed. At that moment, I knew it was a scam. This guy was good. For weeks we spoke and he told the story of how his mom died, and his wife left him and their daughter for another man. I will never ever try online dating again. Beware of this person. I wonder who the soldier is in the pictures. I pray he is not a deceased soldier.

we need a place for just a list of all the names above to make it easier to see them all.

(226) li1 says:

A little over two weeks ago I was contacted by someone on dating service that my coworkers signed me up on. He claims to be a soldier and a widow with a toddler son. Sent me lots of pictures of him and his son, picture of him with a dogtag, picture of him in his hometown favorite team which he claims he is from. He told me all a woman whose long to find a true love needed to hear. A coming home surprise and a marriage, to live the all american dreams. 2 days of the conversations the man is in love with me which is over whelming but too good to be true. 5 days of the conversation he offer to send his personal belongings to me so that he will have a home to come home too. Names of Doctors and colleagues are involved with the package. Delivery co. from UK claiming documents incomplete needed fee $770. Homeland Security threathens me needing yellow tags for the package and documents fee to clear the package at JFK $4,000. Then the last but not least the Military Van necessary to deliver the package because its in the military boxes will cost $8,500. The first fee I felt bad so I gave, the second fee I was afraid of Homeland Security would really arrest me so I gave. The Military Van was enough to wake me up. So I went to local Sheriffs Dept. and reported and gave documents and email address and website of all parties involve who uses forms of goverment and legit website. I was told by local Sheriffs Department that there is nothing they can do, that this kinds of thing happens all the time “infact a man the other day was taken for $10,000 from Nigerian Scammers”. I was shocked and feeling more stupid than I already have. I am a single mother who felt nothing wrong with helping our sodiers but who helps us when we are taken by organization of International Scammers or just plain Scumm of the earth. Please help women like me and stop this thugs from doing this to any hardworking american who has a good heart. Thank you.

I have been chatting to a man who claims to be an American soldier in Afgan. I am well aware of the scam and am aware of what to look for. What I am wondering is how do you know if they are for real? With all the scammers that contact you it is hard to trust who may be real. This guy’s IP traces back to the US. The email he gave me to organize a calling card is usmilitaryservice@consultant.com. They appear to be legit. Does anyone know if they are? Again their IP address is traced back to the US. Their calling cards are rather expensive. Sgt Armstrong from the above mentioned military service says it is because there is no limit to the duration of the call or how often. Is this correct. The soldier in question name is Sgt Christopher Reilly. His english is just that. and his grammer is typical of an American. Does this mean he is ligit…. Please help…. With all these scammers out there I do not want to miss out on the real thing just because I have become suspicious of all

Li1 so sorry to hear what you went through and wish you had seen this site before you them any money. I’m glad you finally woke up and stopped giving them money. Be careful and pass the information on to others.

Lisa if he is Afgan his IP should also be there not in USA. Your next red light warning is him wanting you to get the “expensive” calling card. There is no reason he can’t do it or have his family do it for him. How much money is he asking you to pay and he will pay you back? Have you seen pictures of him , family and friends or just all service pictures? Have you talked on the phone and seen him on cam yet or are there excuses he can’t. Any request for money I would run the other way. Just be careful on all of these kinds of guys.

To Ann (81) – I have jsut started speaking with a James Haggard from Conyers, GA. I told him up front I have a brother who is a cop and I will run a complete background check on him and that my family who is in the military will double check anything he tells me! At first he said “OK” that we should be cautious … then within a few minutes he had to sign off! I don’t think I will be hearing from him again.

Please everyone be careful! If you really want to meet someone in the military you might try going to a VA hospital.

(233) Amanda says:

Sadly I’ve also been scammed, and only just realised after reading this forum! My sexy ‘soldier’, is in fact an ex soldier, but is clearly not the same guy I’ve been talking to! He tracked me down on Facebook and went under the name of Daniel Schumaker (page is now deleted!) then we started to talk on yahoo instant messenger, usual sad story about losing both is parents etc. On Yahoo he used the ID joelmorgan57@yahoo.com, and used the name Daniel! He made up some story about Schumaker being a nick name, and his real name was Daniel Joel Morgan, you’d think the alarm bells would have rang with me, but we’d been talking for 2
months and he sent the most amazing emails and sadly I fell for it! It wasn’t until he asked for money for his flight to come to see me as he couldn’t access his account that alarms went off as I work in a clearing bank so I did some digging and came accross this web site! For the first few weeks he was in Kabul, then he got a posting to Nigeria, and he sent me the fake fiance form, but said he’d pay the $350 fee. He then asked me to email his commander to request his leave, he took a few days to answer but the ‘commander Williams Baker’ email comm.williamsbaker@yahoo.com emailed me back saying Dan’s leave had been approved but I’d need to send €3,500 for his flight, which when I questioned was changed to $3,500! Anyway I did a google image search on the photos, and SGT Joel Morgan does exist, he was all over the news a few months ago becasue some landlady had refused to rent him an apartment becasue he was a war vet, so all the pictures I had were of this guy. I’d like to know how it’s possible to contact anyone who can help to let this poor guy know his good name is being used in such a dreadful way

Hello to you all.
i have to make 3 post cos it wont allow me to post all at once =/
Sorry for my english but im from holland.
I met this guy Capt, Marc jeremy on Skout chat.
He was very clear what he wanted, he was in the US army located in Afganistan for 1 more year and he wanted to have a wife asap before he retires from the army after 16 years of duty.
When i checked his Skout profile it says to me ( u can see how far someone is away from you in miles )
that he was in bartlesville oklahoma. 7713 miles. (first alarmbell )
He was divorced, his ex is living in russia and his 2 childern are living with this aunt in the US.
I told him im not able to use the PC all the time and i asked him to install the whatsapp app on his phone so we could talk there. he said he could not use a phone in the army only for security calls.
But he stayed online on Skout after he signed out on yahoo messenger…
he didnt want me to talk to someone else on skout, he only wanted me to talk to him :)
He asked alot about me and my past, i all answered that questions but never gave personal like adresses information, he sent me a few pics and i sent him some, nothing more.

November 18, 2012 at 5:56 am
(250) anja says:

after some hours he already knew i was going to be his future wife and he loved me so much bla bla bla . ( im 40 what is this guy thinking?) not all older woman are so dumb. well maybe some are…
He uses the word babe in every line he writes or he says, Ok thats cool.
when i told him i had a stroke last xmas he said.. Ok thats cool..
so then i deff knew something was not Ok here.
I asked when he was coming to holland what he wanted to do if he quits the army, he was going to set up a business he said, but didnt know what,, he would have 15 mil dollar to start the business.. ( that was the time i decided to play the game also) In the meanwhile on skout, another man contacts me: his pic was showing me a guy like 55 years old, wihle his profile said he was 21.. ( alarmbells) funny was that this guy said im from texas and im in afganistan atm, when i looked up his Skout information i saw he was also in bartlesville oklahoma 7713 miles away from me :) coincidence? :)
This morning Capt Mark Jeremy contacted me on yahoo msn and said:

(251) Anja says:

Capt mark Jeremy: we can apply for a special leave for me Babe

Capt mark Jeremy: i can spend a month with you or if you want More Babe it depends On the Month of leave we apply for Babe
ANJA: Then u fly from afganistan to here? Or from the us?
Capt mark Jeremy: You will be the one to apply for the Leave they will fly me to you
Babe if you apply for this leave For me Babe my status will be changed from Divorced to Engaged with you BABE
ANJA: Figured that, how much?
Capt mark Jeremy: its $700

Capt mark Jeremy: You know it is a special leave babe
Capt mark Jeremy: so when we apply for the leave i will be given some leave Bonus
Capt mark Jeremy: You know i will be given a leave Bonus which is $10,000 for a month
Capt mark Jeremy: that is at your Local airport in Netherland Babe
Capt mark Jeremy: so i can pay You back and then take care of you and the kids Babe

kyle– it seems most of these fake soldiers /scammers are male. are you even sure the person you met is a female? glad you realized its all fake too. pass on the site and info to everyone possible to limit the problem.

anja—-great job on catching on to his lies then playing the game to see how far he would go. i bet the other name was him also and he was going to watch you on that account to see how honest you are. isn’t that funny the liar trying to catch you at a lie. lol

latest thing is now asking for my phone number to talk 5 minutes after he got the ok from his commander. after last 2 months he said it was against protocal to talk on the phone. funny things change when needed if he thinks he might not get money. remember his name is Sgtterry Tonny Tos on facebook and on yahoo it is terry.tonny@yahoo.com .

(256) cindy says:

I do not like saralee’s insinuations. Those comments are very unfair. I joined meet me dating website to make friends that could possibly turn into a relationship. All relationships begin as friendships. After checking my messages on the site i saw that I received a message from a very good looking army soldier who said he was looking for the love of his lifewho would be there to help give him advise about his life. He stated that he wanted her to be caring, understanding and God fearing. He left me his email address, sgtmoore111@yahoo.com. i emailed him and after having been through a lot of hurt in my life (being married to a lawyer for 13 yrs who had an affair w his secretary) I must admit that he “swooed” me with his poetic nature after a week of emails. A couple of examples of his quotes are: “distance never seperates two hearts that really care for each other and are meant to be together” and: “love comes from a pure heart, a good conscience and a sincere faith.”. This went on almost two weeks and last night he emailed that he would love to meet me and that if i wanted to meet him he could give him the email address of army office where i woul have to contact them and request a leave of absence for him to come see me. I told him I would love to meet him and I did what he said. Then he said i needed to give army the address of closest airport to me. I did that. Yes i fell for lots of sweet talk. I got back on the meet me site today and saw that he had taken the close up good looking profile pic off and replace it with a more distant pic. I emailed and asked why he took it off he said he just decided to. That wasnt a wrong answer. Lots of ppl change pics, but I really began thinking today and getting suspicious minded.

258 Donna R ……also i wanted to comment that i know ricky is a real man ,and i sense that he has alot of pride in his self,if you happen to trip over him somewhere by chance, could you ask him why doesn’t he clean up his image on the internet ,i wouldn’t want any harm coming to him,i think i have talked with the real recardo barboza at one time and he seemed like a very clean,caring,alot of self respect kind of guy, and wouldn’t put up with this sort of thing,he seemed like a hard worker,i think there is two ricky’s on line ,one in nigeria,and then the real ricky,,mistaken identity could lead him into a great deal of trouble,sadly i have been confused by which ricky i have spoken with,and maybe spoke very harshly to the real one

Well another story and name to add to this long list. He states he is a Sargent in the Army from Utah but his mother divorced his father when he 3 and raised him in Spain. His wife died and he enlisted in 2001. Has a 10 year daughter staying with friends in London. Goes by trevor_lucas12@yahoo.com. We have only been talking for about a week but he loves me and wants to marry me,h even went as far as sending me emails from his daughter in London. I may not be the smartest person but flags went up then. Well he tells me about the leave thing and that it will cost 550 for him to get his leave. I told he straight out I live paycheck to paycheck and did not it to send, he became very sad. I have reported it and told him I did so. Well guess what have heard no more from him. I am from a very large military family how stupid did he think I was. And a damn shame because who ever the guy is he very handsome.

Hi there, some very interesting reading here! I too think I am being scammed but by a female in the US Army apparently!
I am a guy and we started chatting on a dating site, I checked the IP addresses and they originate from sunny California, when she is supposedly in Kabul Afghanistan!
I am not sure either way but will keep my eyes open. I have this morning asked if I can ring her but she said she left her phone on a different base so could I send a new one, a galaxy S111!

(281) Donna says:

john be careful because it’s very possible the person you met is a guy trying to scam you. especially since no conversation able on the phone. the red light should come on after that and after asking you to buy a new phone and send it.

julie i’m not sure what list you’re talking about but watch for the warning signs of a scammer. won’t talk on a phone, go on video cam, asking for money soon after chatting in messages, friends list are hidden or very few friends, pictures are of just soldiers and nothing with family or friends. there are many scammer names on this site but it’s also possible for them to easily change a name, e-mail or account.. just be careful and warn others too.

I had also contact with a soldier from Afghanistan, for 6 month’s. After all I noticed that he was a scammer, but the man on the photo was not the man I was talking to, someone was behind that picture, from Ghana.
The name they used was STEPHEN JOHNSON, and I am so sorry for that man on the picture, because his photo was used for this. Finally I broke up with this man, because they all the time want me to send money, but I didn’t, I did not trust it, there were to many doubts. He was also “coming home”, and send his lugage to me, there was a woman who would bring them to me, her name was JANINA BATES. So be careful and don’t believe this people.

Hi, I recently met a man on Badoo. This is a dating social site that goes by the name ALLEN MILLER on badoo. He is listed as age 37 yrs and location is West Palm Beach, FL. This man told me is a deployed in Kabul Iran at the time. He was really forward about marriage and within a day or two he was professing how much he loved me and how he wants to marry me as soon as possible when he comes back. He requested we use yahoo messenger to chat and needed my personal email address. Always referred to his mom as mum. He told me his parents were deceased and he had one son name “Giovanni” who was 7 years old. The sons mother is also deceased according to ALLEN MILLER. Well anyway his name on yahoo is MILLER ALLEN. So ladies please BEWARE. I only talked to this guy a week and luckily found him out in a short amount of time. His pictures are charming and he will target a nice well groomed woman. I am 27 yrs old and single with a career. So please be careful! ALLEN MILLER or MILLER ALLEN on badoo! Beware

(294) Anna says:

ok so my comments are going to be in parts as I am having difficult condesning my thoughts sorry..my story is about an Amercian Soldier who goes by the name of Arnold Hoke….
hi there I have also been communicating with a “soldier” stationed in Kabul Afghanistan Arnold Hoke he never did mention his rank or anything like that and I have always wanted to ask but it seems like that question just never arose when we chatted we communicate via msn and email… I have even chatted with his 2 children I even saw these boys on webcam I have received several pics of this man and saw him on web cam once at the time I didn’t have a web cam set up so we could not actually have a video call once I set it up he reminded me that he did not have a personal computer of his own and always borrowed on when he wanted to chat with me or send me an email the emails and chats were slowing down although I still get them about a week or so ago he actually asked me if I could send him a laptop so we could have more time together until he came here to Canada oh yes I live in Thunder Bay, ON, Canada he was going to move here with me and bring his children here with him as well at one point in time one of his children even chatted with me and mentioned that we should send his dad a laptop so he could communicate with him more I never sent him the laptop and although I tried to stop communications between us a few times. He insisted that everything was alright and that no worries he still loved me lol when he first contacted me he advised me that he would be released from Afghanistan before the year was up

November 29, 2012 at 8:15 am
(295) anna says:

again the 2nd part RE: Arnold Hoke
… Ironically he was the 4th “soldier” who contacted me on that very day 3 from Afghanistan and 1 from Iraq the other 3 I managed to get rid of .but this one was very persistent and swept me right off my feet .promised he would be here before Christmas about a week after we started chatting he advised me that he was on a “special team” was assigned to a specific mission. Well not being that educated about the military in particular US I never thought anything of it didn’t question it or ask
questions about it anyway he advised me that once his mission was completed he would be compen-sated 3.1 million dollars. I told him that money did not interest me and that it meant nothing to me. He suggested that I start thinking about a business and that I should start a business with this money. a couple of days ago he sent me an email asking me for my home address as he had to get in touch with the proper Diplomat to have his personal belongings sent to me… when I questioned him his answers were evasive I caught him on msn yesterday and asked again for clarification… he said his personal be-longings such as clothes. And with this package would be a document regarding his 3.1 million dollars that I need to keep safe for him until he arrives in Canada. Immediately red flags started going up.

November 29, 2012 at 8:18 am
(296) anna says:

Arnold Hoke..part 3
I started asking questions Hequestions He did not answer He set his status to msn to away and never did come back that morning had to go to work but in the meantime I had sent off an email to a law firm in Toronto ON, inquiring about how an American soldier would be able to come here immediately after his deployment is completed because that was his intentions. As soon as he was released he would come straight here not even go to his children because they understood how happy we were and wanted us to be together so they were willing to sacrifice their Christmas with their father so he could be with me and my boys and come here and look for a home his children and new family well after I sent the email to this law firm I sent Mr. Arnold Hoke an email stating to him that I had several questions that I needed answered before he sent me any packages or showed up on my door step He said the diplomat would contact me to make arrangements for me to receive this package I told him that under no circumstances is he to send me anything until I looked into this further and found the answers I needed to my knowledge once a soldier is released from war they must immediately return back to their home country otherwise they would be considered a deserter. Please correct me if I am wrong but anyway that was his intentions

November 29, 2012 at 8:20 am
(297) Anna says:

Arnold Hoke part 4
I questioned him a few times & every time I did he said it was not for me to worry that he would take care of everything so anyway I came home from work yesterday to a one sentence response to my email that I sent him asking for clarification and suggesting that he go home to his children first then come here to Canada told him was feeling nervous about his whole plan and that once again he sends me nothing until I get answers well unlike all of his other emails which were always very lengthy and full of love and devotions and hope for the future. This one merely stated “Well contact me as after you receive your Answer, Thanks…” copied and pasted right from the email he didn’t even bother to start a new email he just hit reply on The one I sent him he’s never done that and his emails have always been very lengthy not even an attempt to defend himself

linda we wish it was that easy to stop them but i have been told many times our government won’t/can’t do anything because they are not in the usa. many are over seas, most of them in nigeria or that area. just all don’t forget if the soldiers e-mail doesn’t have mil. in it them he is not in the service. if they ask for money soon after meeting online or excuses to not talk on phone or get on cam they are fake. most of them use the story of a single dad(by wife dying, divorce or left them) of course a kid or 2 with family if the family isn’t dead too.

As I replied why he tried to dragg me into such scam, it took less than 5 minutes to empty the profile :) Feel silly, because I did pray for his safety, really thought he was in danger over there every day… Hope my prayers have gone to the real ones out there !

All the same words that have been used on others were used on me. He did’nt ask for money right aways but did ask for afavor. He said he needed 1500$ to renew his satelite contract so I would’t lose him. When I told him I did’t have the money right noe then he said if I could come up with 550$ for deposit, we could pay the balance later. I told him I didn’t have 550$ either. Ask me when I could get it. All the sudden he said his time was running out, said signal was getting weaker, ask for my address & phone # and oh my god i I gave it to him. I bet and I did have some real feelings for him. He to said he was awidower and had a 12 year old that stayed with her Nanny !!! REMEMBER THIS NAME; hectorbarlett@yahoo.com.

(312) martina says:

Hello there, first of i wanna let you know there is still hope out there!i met my boyfriend online and yes he is a real person and he even looks like the photos he posted!
when i started online dating, i was not really “looking” , i was more looking for entertainment and friends. i have to say, i picked tangowire back then and i would do it again! on tangowire you can see who verified his account. to do this, you have to take a photo with your member# and they check if this photo matches your other photos.
so you all say the same thing,he didnt wanna come on cam. well let me tell you one thing, when some guy doesnt wanna go on cam, that means something. from my experience guys usually wanna go on cam right away. i did not have one single guy, who did not ask me to chat on cam, or ask me for my number and they would call me.

you all say, that they have been asking you for money to fly back home or to pay for their leave….seriously?!? do you really think they fly those mem and women out there and then tell them, good look in getting back home?!? and do you have to pay you boss to get leave?!? neither does a service member!!!

i do understand, that many of you feel fooled now, and yes you all got fooled BUT you are not the only onse. the nigeria connection, thats how they call themself, also fools people who want to adopt children….those children dont even exist!!!
they try to get money out of everyone who doesn look desperate for any reason.
i dont know any of you girls in person, and i sure do not wanna judge you, but just try to not look “desperate”, that will be your downfall over and again!
i wish you all the best and hope you will find THE ONE…btw also dont let yourself get fooled by lonely soldiers who tell you they are seperated or devorced…i had that happen to me…i back then only got my heart broken and didnt end up broken ;-)

patty, louise and myrna run as fast as you can away from these guys with the heart breaking story and needing you to send money for a leave. if you haven’t already read the stories above and you will see they are all the same.

martina congrats on meeting your bf online and him being a real guy you were lucky. we aren’t saying they are all fake but trying to warn others what to watch out for on possible fakes. best of luck to you and your bf for many happy years together.

Hi Ann, I have just read your message about James Haggard, SGT James Haggard, from Florida, deployed at Afganstan. has 10 yr old son. I have been talking to him on emails for a month. Is this the same guy? has never ASK me for money, but i don’t understand how after 2 wks say’s he loves me, writes love poetry…I was optomistic, but I’m not stupid. I don’t fall in love on just emails, thats just silly. I’ve have never given James any personal details..only my email address. although he did want me to facebook him…which I didn’t. a few days later, he email me asking me is this was my real name…which he was totally correct, but I didn’t admit to it. HOW DO THEY DO THAT!!!, BECAUSE I HONESTLY DIDN’T HIM ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION AT ALL.

I have been chatting to a man called Nelson Walker although Nelson was his badge name!! Within the first week he was quoting his undying love for me and wanted to start a new life in the uk as his wife had cheated on him and left with a 9 year old son. He borrowed Ł2k from his ‘boss’ to buy a ring for me. His leave date was coming up so then stated his ‘boss’ wanted his money back before he could leave the army to come join me. I had doubts all the way along but kept by passing them. I obviously wouldnt provide the money so it has now all stopped although I have now realised there was 3 of them writing as the grammer changed quite a lot. My biggest question is where do they get these photos not only of soldiers in Uniform but without and with their children. These poor genuine brave soldiers are being tainted by the likes of these people. How can it be stopped!!

Hello, this is to update my previos comment on Capt Cather Graham–I called him again on his intentions, and he got mad a second time, but calmed down when I told him I will give him the chance to prove he is real to me then–well we chatted some more, I asked to do a video call with him, and he said he couldn’t because army does not allow that–so if I wanted to I could put a special request in, and I would have to pay the $250 activation fee–I asked for the form–he said to email this address usmilitary5@mail2world.com I received a reply from them this morning and I tracked the IP address–it cam back to Los Angeles, then I tracked some more info found in “view message source” and it comes back to lagos Nigeria, I have reported to all necessary govt agencies, and now here–his three emails I have so far collected are:

danielwilson463@yahoo.com “his supposed friend”

NOw tagged has already blocked him, as Cather graham, I have reported him to facebook as well, the soldier in the picture is intriguing, that is what piqued my iinterest in him
SO ladies beware–I have not given him any monies and will give no one monies
s for your time, just beware of this idiot

Hey I have previous posted coments about a Capt Cather Graham—-email addresses are as follows:

Bottom line is I have to spend 250 on him to text and have video calls with him.
Not happening,
Ladies beware, I have further info on him let me know here if I can assist anyone–he is from Lagos Nigeria, he has been reported to all neccesary agencies–I stop at nothing

I was talking to someone calling themselves Brad Lingo. He stole photos of a real soldier named Adam Lingo. His email is brad_lingo@yahoo.com.He contacted me on dailystrength.org It is a support group stie. I am chronically ill with a life threatning disease and have been on chemotherapy for four years to treat it. These Nigerian con artists will prey on anyone even someone that is dying. He said his wife, mother and father all died in a car accident. He asked me to send him money to help pay for his internet so he could stay in touch with me. He said that they only feed them oatmeal and that he was starving. Wanted me to contact his superior and tell him I was his wife so he could get a phone to talk to me on. I said I am not going to lie and say I am your wife. At first when he first told me he wanted me to wire him money I said to him he was some scam artist and he ended up sweet talking me so I gave in and sent him 85$ through western union. He said that his internet is going to get cut off again after two weeks and needed more money he had to stay in touch with me so I knew that is all he wanted from me and that I should of listened to my intuition the first time when he asked for money and I thought it was a scam. So I stopped contact with him. I googled to see if there was a scam going around of nigerians posing as us military and came across some sites like romancescam and found his picture under the name of Adam Lingo. He is a real soldier which has been a victim himself from all of this. Someone stole his photos off of facebook. His photos have been under the names of Michael Adam LIngo, Mark Lingo, Brand Lingo, Alex Lingo, David Lingo etc and they are all facebook profiles. If you google Adam Lingo you can see his photos. I don’t want anyone else to go through this.

katrina(322) if you haven’t read all the other posts here then you really need to do it now. 1st flag you just started talking in oct and wedding for jan before you ever meet in person. 2nd flag – a sargent asking for money to pay for anything. have you seen him on cam or talked on the phone yet? does his e-mail end with mil? that is the address for military soldiers. is he a sweet talker with stories of loneliness or sadness of his family? i bet if you don’t show any signs of sending money he will gradually stop talking to you. just be careful and don’t trust these guys.

I just started talking with an, Arnold Pierce, who says he’s in the US Army over in Kabul Afghanistan but my gut isn’t sitting well with him so did a search and cannot find a thing on him, which is a first for me…*red flag alert*….he wanted me to accept him as a Friend on Facebook, which I did, after all he is fighting for our Country and I thought it’d be nice to have one of the troops to talk with…getting into a relationship was the last thing on my mind and actually still is since he lives in Ariz.., has an 11 year old daughter who happens to be living with his mom in another Country, untill he returns home. And ya got it, he won’t answer any of my questions, like when his birthday is. I’m about ready to delete him from my FB but the detective in me wants to try to find out who he ready is, which is hard to do since I don’t have an email addy. Any suggestions? Oh and his FB page doesn’t have anything on it, cannot comment on it, nothing. If he’s a scammer, maybe I can help stop him before he hurts someones feelings. Thanks!

i recently had this same experience with a guy on FB named Enrique Michael, he has pictures of him in army uniform in “Afghanistan” and was already proposing marriage and asked me if i can write a request to the us army so he can go on a leave…. apparently i need to pay as his fiancee an amount of money for his leave so we can meet and get married…..

good thing i checked the us army site bout their procedure and read bout the scams…. now i just told him that i know he is no soldier and that he’s an african guy who is a fake and a scammer… i reported him to FB and blocked him…. wish there’s more i can do… i think its already a syndicate and the only way to stop this is for women like us to investigate first and not send money ever to strangers…. i’m still single and been wanting to meet a special man….

i still believe there is some1 out there for me and i just need to pray and trust God to lead me to the right person… so let’s all beware online and continue to ask God’s wisdom and guidance in our search…. God bless us!!

This is so alarming, i just been signedup for mate1 website to find a relationship that could lead to marriage. So glad to see this forum before i fall prey to rhis scammers.

His profile name is “m.maupainf”, his so called name is fred mauphin. He is a so called us army deployed in libya. He was widowed and has 1 child 4 yr old son. He has his picture and son.he want a wife to take care of his sin michael muphin.

We started chatted 1 day and he gets my yahoo id. We chat along and suddenly he said that its better if we can talk. So i thought he’d ask my number. But He said, i need to apply for a military calling card for me to reach him.

I did not pick up at first, until the 2nd day, he begun to direct the topic in calling cards that i need to send him money to avail military call card on my behalf for us to continue talking. I started to suspect now.

He gave me a price list of calling cards amounting usd: $395 for 3mos, $545 (5mos),$835 ( 1yr) . Lol! Calling card costs more than hundredths!

I did not know that telco is greedy now because of this pretending military idiot.

For i am so aware of online scammers and fraud online.. I already suspect that the guy is a Scammer. So be cautios ladies!

Anyone asking money online, dont think twice! Its a scam…

I saw him in the webcam but the image was quite dark and the room was impersonal He didn’t ask me money, he said he wanted to visited me in my country on Christmas, he was widow and he had a 15 years old son.

I am sorry some of you have gotten scammed but some info y’all put out is false. My BF lives by me and is in the navy not on ships though. He builds buildings. He is in Afghan and uses his hotmail address. Doesn’t even know what his military email is. He pays for his own Internet too. I know this to be true because we grew up together. He calls too but can only talk like 20 mins and not everyday. We also have Skype. If these guys have FB do your research look at their family on there and what is being posted. Trust me if mom and friends are posting stuff then it should be legit. I ran our IP address and it gave somewhere in Washington which is funny cause I don’t live anywhere near there. It depends on where your service provider’s main office is located. I hope some of you women find an honest guy like I did… But don’t ever send any money the military pays for their way home.

I have been widowed for 6 years now and ….

I work for the US Army and am in the Unit of E6-SAG stationed here in (Afghanistan-Kabul) and my ranger rank is a first class Major serving with the last batch of US Army soldiers in Afghanistan. I’m a bomb specialist so my work here is to make bombs for the soldiers and also disconnect the bombs set by the terrorist. The good news is that the war is over but we are here consolidating the security frame work and helping the Afghanistan security forces to train their soldiers. I’ve served in the US Army for 28 years and i studied defense Intelligence and Atomic Energy at Military School and my first mission in Afghanistan.

I’m currently stationed in (Afghanistan-Kabul) which is the capital of Afghanistan and I live at the military base camp. This is my first mission in Afghanistan… I have already spent some years here but actually we are not allow to communicate with civilians for security reasons but due to my mission.. I’m currently working on which am allow to use my laptop because I make a lot of research about bombs and ammunition’s online so i decided to take advantage of this opportunity to find someone special online to communicate with and try to see if we can develop a serious friendship to see what the future will hold for us and lead to us into something great and meaningful when I get retired from the army to come back home to meet my rightful woman .

I think Im being scammed but I cant figure it out. I met James Otano on Match we have talked for 6 weeks and I fell in love. We e-mail and use yahoo instant messanger. I found a facebook two face book pages with different pictures. One of his military pictures and one from match. Needless to send a friend request to the military picture he accepts and we chated through facebook. the same day i got an email from the yahoo account. He said the other guy was a scam and to not talk with him. So we were back to talking and chatting everything seemed fine. I didn’t hear from him in 5 days and then he no longer has a picture on yahoo messanger. He messages me and starts asking for money, he doesn’t sound like the same person I was chatting to before, but the e-mail address on messanger matches the e-mail account we have been using. He went off on me when I told him I had no money and he new things about the guy I was talking too. So am I being scammed by both, is one legit and his account hacked. I don’t know what to think. I have not had any e-mails in 5 days, just the idot asking for money on yahoo messanger.

I was contacted by “S/Sgt Lingo”..and same story was told. Asking for money, laptops, and mobile phones.. but fortunately I am just a poor girl and I cant send any… He accidentally opened his camera when we were chatting…I was so angry at him and told him I will report him to US govt… I searched his profile on facebook. when I typed “Lingo” it showed too many names of the same pictures of one soldier.. I felt so pity with the soldier on the picture.. I believe his surname is Lingo..

I hope the US government will do somethng to stop this.. It is so appalling!…to use somebody’s identity of someone who is risking his life to serve his country and the whole world is very distressing! I cannot exactly describe how I feel.. really hope all of these will end and those men punished!!!!

(356) Sam L says:

As a retired US military member, I can state the following:
- US military members do not buy leave
- US military members do not need money for bona fide medical expenses for their dependent — even the most costly medical treatment is covered by the military medical system
- US military members can receive mail wherever they are stationed
- While the vast majority of US military people are honest, there are a few creeps – report anyone who is acting dishonestly. Ask for the name of their commanding officer or first sergeant, that might shut them down

Here are few suggestions;
- Are you suspicious of a phony picture? Ask to have one sent with very specific instructions — hold a cup in your left hand or something like that
- Don’t ever send anyone money — most can’t spend it on anything in Afghanistan and any plane ticket will be paid for by the US military.
- Use common sense — can you imagine really falling in love over the Internet after a couple of days?

I met a guy named SGT.James Pelzer on facebook. He was suppose to be a soldier in Pakistan on a peace keeping mission.According to him he had already been there for 14 months and was not due back home for another 7 months. He said he was widowed, had a 13 year old daughter, that he loved me and wanted to come home so we could be together as a family. He was a real charmer; however, I kept my guard up and just played along with him. Finally one day he asked me to send an email to the generals desk asking for his redepoyment back home.When I got a reply back I was told that I would have to send $670.00 by Western Union or money gram for his processing. I knew than that I was right, I was dealing with a scammer.For one, the general on the letter is retired, the email address the letter was sent to did not have a government address,and I know the military would not charge me for him to come home. I immediately got ahold of my local army recruiting station and they track down the real Sgt. James Pelzer.The real SGT James Pelzer and I have been in touch through his Army Email. He is giving all the information I have given him to the Army CID, along with my contact information so I can help them with the investigation. The real SGT Pelzer has asked me to spread the word out to NEVER send money to these guys. Oh, another thing I have found. The fakes do have ladies working with them. My fake had a lady on his friends list, and she told me she knew him (met him in person before he deployed), that what he told me was true about himself and his family,she even said that the pictures I saw was of the real guy that she had met. The real SGT Pelzer told me he did not know this lady, nor had he ever met her. These people will do anything to make their story real so guard your hearts and never, never send money.

Then he tells me his children are in Ghana wife ex wife and he paid her $500,00.00 to get his kids and leave him alone. Now he’s asking me for airfare money to fly his kids from Ghana to me to take care of “because I have a beautiful heart and loving soul, and he felt a connection”….OMG!!! His spelling is awful and when I started asking more questions, he suddenly got called to go on duty and could not talk. He sent me pictures. This all happened in the last FIVE DAYS!!! They have buildings set up in Nigeria and all across the country with computers and these “men or women” do this 8 to 10 hours a day to get money sent to them. I tracked his IP address and it originates from Ireland. I just wanted to share my story.

Ok ladies
I am a woman that seeks out dishonest frauds. I respect what our military does and I am aware of what they can do as far as leave and access to their bank accounts etc.
A couple tips :
It they have a lot of grammar errors. There is a reason ladies. Not everyone is a Harvard graduate but you know in your gut when it is not right.
If they ask for money because they don’t have access until they get home …BS! Something called the Internet and guess what they can get to it.
“I am a widow”. Yes that does happen and it is heart wrenching …but I found 5 in one week Sad but true.
If they promise that you are the love of their life and have never spoken to you and promise not to hurt you etc. He claims to know you have been hurt but he will never do that to you etc. Guess what ladies we have all had our hearts hurt ….doesn’t mean that this anonymous person knows us ….predators know what to say to make us feel special and good. Think first. How well does this person really know me.

We have all wanted that person to care and love us. We aren’t weak, we just want love ….It is natural. That is where the preditor takes advantage. Always go with your instincts. Please go with your gut. Don’t over romanticize something that isn’t in front of you and you have trusted over the test of time.
Names to watch for
Smith willo Lewis : widow
Michael Edwards : widow
Ctp Anderson: widow.

I wish you all best finding the one that is the love of your life. Don’t settle ladies!!! Be true to yourself and what you want in your life.

I believe that someone called John hammod is a scammer. Saying he is a captain in the 7th air defence artillery based in Kabul originally from new York.. His wife and parents are deceased,his son and daughter aged 10 and 15 are being looked after by the military in NY. Apparently not been home since the burial of his wife in 2007. Said he hasn’t Siemens his children since then. Made me very suspicious as the military wouldn’t allow that to happen to a family especially following a bereavement. He said he would like to spend time with me but I would need to request the leave which originally he told me only a spouse could do (smelt a rat again) plus pay. I thought that was VERY strange. I googled information which confirmed my thoughts plus I came across this site.

I thought I would post this story just in case anyone else has come across this guy.

I think it is terrible in this modern world that we have to be so cautious and suspicious of people. I know there are many good people out there but some that just want to con others.

I would love to be wrong about the guy but after reading the stories posted here feel my instinct is right.

I stumbled across this site while I was trying to verify this new man that has started emailing me on the dating website zoosk. We’ve only been chatting for 2 days, but already I sense something is not quite right. His name is Sgt Samuel Milk Talbot Smith. He is in his 40′s, widower, has an 11 year old son, from Houston Texas. He’s very good looking, and even sent me pictures of him, his son, and his mother who cares for his son. He is currently stationed in Afghanistan, but has not asked me for any money yet. I also noticed that he deleted his profile just one day after we started talking, which I thought was odd also. His grammar is normal so far, but I did notice that he hasn’t answered my questions? I have family in the military, so I’m familiar with how things should really work. his email is also gmail, which I also thought was odd since my relatives have military email accounts. I am disappointed to say the least. I’d really like to meet the real man behind the real pictures though-what a catch! Now I’m wondering what they do with our pictures that we send to them! Scary.

Many of these men are actually in US State Prison’s with access to illegal cel phones. It is very easy to pose as military because the structure of prison is very much like that of the military. The biggest giveaway, you can’t meet them, there is always an excuse why you have to wait. You are not the only one, they often times are running or scamming 1 – 4 men or women. The phone sex will be great, you can easily get hooked. They are sociopath’s that will play a soulmate love scam on vulnerable men and women. Please be careful. I allowed myself to become a victim of this fraud and scam. I lost everything. They must be willing to meet you, in a public place, verify they are military, you can ask for their ID and search on line, conduct a background check (it’s worth the money for your safety), FOLLOW YOUR INTUITION! It doesn’t lie. Be safe, Be careful!

gt the more money and things you send these guys the longer they will keep in contact with you only to take more from you. if he is a captain why does he need you to send this money? did he give you a story i can’t get in my account until back in the states? did he give you a family sob story of kids and dead or exwife? don’t send money to him run the other way!!!!!!!!!!!

Donna i know all that now and i wish i could make them all pay for what they have done to me and other women i have never met such ruthless people in my whole life. the email from the lt col was that it was for an exit permit and that i would have to sign papers for him to get his bonus.. i know now its all bullshit he gave me a story that his wife cheated on him and that he is divorced and that he has one son and its never been about the boy its always about him coming he said he couldnt access his account until he was here nothing about the states.. Well i am tired of it all and now i just want to be on my own rather than trust any man cause at least i know i cant be hurt any more.

So my mom always taught me trust your instincts… I hate when she is right. I started getting suspicious of a US Army soldier who befriended my on Facebook in July 2012. His stated his name was Ethan Shadix. I though the profile looked a little odd because he didn’t have many friends or family on his profile. He didnt really bother me at first then in December 2012 he started talking to me… very nice and sweet and friendly. He never once asked me for money. But there were little clitches in his story…his profile stated he lived in Baghdad Iraq but when I asked him where he was stations he said Kabul Afghanastien. Id ask him how the weather was and he’d say Hot… I looked at the weather and it was like 50 degrees in Kabul. He first told me he was in the army for 7 years, then he later (about 3 weeks later) said 9 years and that he was was from Salt Lake City, UT and that he hadn’t been back to the states in all that time… that was the biggest flag… what US Soldier wouldn’t want to come back? So I started research on the fact that soldiers opting not to come back to the states. Thats when I found this article and it got my wheels turning. So I did some searches on the internet for just the last name and US Army and I found a facebook page of the actual US Soldier. So I have reported Ethan to not only facebbook but to ic3.gov; I also sent messages to the soldier whose photos were stolen and to all the “friends” that Ethan had on his profile (mostly women) alerting them that this was a scam. So if you ever get a request from a very handsome, blonde hair soldier with the last name Shadix, first name maybe Ethan or something else… yahoo email address shadix10@yahoo.com and yahoo messanger shadix10 I would strongly suggest declining/blocking him.
Thank you to the writer of this article and the many helpful above posters for getting my wheels turning before he tried to sucker me in.

(387) Jess says:

If it doesnt feel right… It most likely isnt.

The military has something called a family care plan, and you would not be deployed without one. Single parents are required to have one of these… the military will not take care of their children. So if someone is telling you the military is looking after their child, they are lying.

Leave cannot be purchased and only the military member can request the time off.

No military member pays for their flights while deployed…

Any deployed service member who asks for money is scamming you. The military has programs for service member who need money. Soldiers make alot of money overseas, so if they are really needing money they have very poor money management and I wouldnt reccomend sending them any money anyway.

Another way to tell if they are scamming you is ask for more information… Rank, where they went to basic training, what unit their with, how long they have been in…

If they tell you they can’t call you… they are also lying. After all they are e-mailing you which is more difficult to gain access while deployed then a phone.

I feel bad for you all, it’s horrible seeing you all being taken advantage of. :(

He said he loves me in our first yahoo messenger email and kept on saying it in every conversation, he must think me thick….. I said he is from Austin Texan, but I found another picture like the one he sent me on another website saying he 45 and lives in South Africa. I told him about this he lied of course, so asked for his rank id, where he is station in the US, why he can’t call or receive mail, he said he cannot give his rank Id as it’s his life, he can only communicate via Ts2, oh and he wanted me to write to request his leave, yeah right!!!!!!!!, he is not answering any of my questions but I am amusing myself at his expense until he gets bored :) , just a warning he is using email address korzenowiski73301@yahoo.com

I had been chatting with a US military man who said that he was deployed in Afghanistan who contacted me on a dating site on the internet. He said that his name was Tommy Macher (tommymacher@yahoo.com) 42 year old sent me photos of a military solider each of the photos looked slightly different when I looked at them closely. The first photograph that I first saw of him on the dating site I asked for as I wanted to examine it closely but the person never sent it. He too also said that he could not receive phone calls or call out. In addition, he mentioned that he could not receive mail….(which is not true at all military service personnel can receive mail it goes to a safe mailing address for all stationed soliders)
I also found it strange within 24 hours he was pledging his love for me and that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me.
He also mentioned that both his Mom and Dad had deceased and was an only child raised in Dallas, TX. He also mentioned that he was married but has been divorced for 4 years and has a 9 year old son that lives with his mother in Miami, FL. All he would talk about each day that I spoke with him is how he could not live without me and that I am the woman of his dreams…..(LOL)…Than he tells me that he needs me to pay for his discharge form of $300.00…..I said to him excuse me….I don’t think so.
All I can say is no money was sent and I have discontinued all communication.
It is very disgusting that people like this think that they can prey others…Always follow your instinct ladies if red flags go up than in most cases it is true…..always be careful on these dating sites….there are some beautiful fish out there however, many wear a costume and turn out to be sharks.

Saralee, Post #175: “You women are a bunch of desprate hags!!!! I am a female soldier and there is no way a soldier is asking for money on deployment for leave. First of all leave is earned. Second and we don’t pay for it. and SSgt is not Army rank, SSG is Army. So what if he says he’s in Afghanistan. You can Google pics that real soldiers post on the internet of some of the camps or FOBs.

You all are a bunch of money hungry idots, I’m glad you got ripped off. You all deserved it. Go get a job and stop trying to be a damned fat, desparate Army wife.”

Saralee, before you insult everyone on this page, please consider that some of us are sincere and simply want to befriend and support our troops when contacted. That was my feeling when “Danny Thompson” LT.II, Kabul Afghanastan sent me a FB friend request 2 days ago. But I was immediately suspicious, did a little googling & realized it was a scam. I called him on his BS, and reported his ass.

I am a successful professional, the last thing in the world I’d ever want to be is a “damned fat, desparate Army wife.” WTH is your problem Saralee?

Watch out for him and good luck ladies

OK…my best friend has fallen for a soldier that she met on the internet and they yahoo im and email…she’s never heard his voice and the 2 pics she has mean nothing to me. HELP! I have a name and supposedly what he does but no way to confirm he is who he claims to be. My dearest best friend’s heart is on the line. Any information you can give me will be helpful.

Hello, Jeffrey Thomas, any one hear of him? jeffthom2222@yahoo.com is the address he is using. So far he hasnt asked for anything, although he really wants to get a leave soon, to be with me lol, after 3 short conversations he has fallen for me, Also sent me a picture with his first name on his uniform, found that to be weird, the investigator in me is hanging in to wait for his next move. Since day one I have been stupifying him with my questions, I think he is getting suspicious or at least frustrated with me. Any one who says they love you and doesnt even know your last name yet is a scammer, plain and simple, Be careful ladies

Be aware of a Plenty of Fish username seanhxxx. I contacted him first saying that his profile was hilarious and then he responded back by saying that he was a Christian and that a fellow soldier wrote the profile for him. We exchanged numbers and when i called him, there was no greeting and i didn’t leave a message. He then told me that he was stationed overseas and then immediately asked me to if i wanted to chat on yahoo. Within a few days he was telling me how he missed me and loved me. He said that his pregnant wife was killed in an accident and that his mother was taking care of his daughter. His first yahoo email account was capt.seanhill@yahoo.com and his second email address was seanhill@yahoo.com. He posted pictures of himself and even one of his daughter. He then wanted to IM me and that’s where he asked me to help him get a “military pass” and that he wanted my account number. I said absolutely not and he said alright and that he would “love” me from afar. I asked him several times to give me his troop name and his location and he said that he was “a good man with a good heart” and that i never cared for him because i didn’t trust him. I actually had feelings for this guy! I busted him this morning and told him that he was a Nigerian scammer and that i’m reporting him to the US ARMY. His response was that he knew all along that i didn’t believe him and that he will prove me wrong and contact me when he gets back in the states. Also, i kept telling him to call me and he said that he was trying to get a chance but it was hard. He called once and it said UNKNOWN so i didn’t answer. He left me an email saying that he tried to call but i didn’t respond. He didn’t leave me a message, I’m not surprised by this. I have all of his emails saved.

I can’t thank you enough for all that you have done for me. About 2 year ago I my partner had misunderstanding, we had both made BIG mistakes in our relationship. He ended up moving away from me to pursue a new life. I knew in my heart that he would be the only one to make me happy. I was relieved when I found your email: voodoafricapower@yahoo.com on a site about what you have done. I requested 1 to 2 day casting of the reunite us love spell and within 3days frank company had relocated him back to our hometown where I still lived. We immediately reconnected and move in with each other I can’t really thank you enogh Dr Okoja.

Hi everyone, I was scammed by a st sgt Curtis Stark stationed in Afghanistan. I know what you all mean. They can be very charming. I kept telling my friend that I felt really uncomfortable about him. He wanted me to send him a phone so that he could talk to me everyday. I told him that I would not be doing this. He did get a little angry for a while, but then apologised and said he just wanted to talk to me so badly. And yes like the rest of you he claimed he was in love with me from day 2. What was I thinking. I didnt know how to find out if he was for real, until I googled scammers posing as us soldiers and then I found this web site. I didnt find his name here anywhere so hoped that I wasn’t one of these victims. I then read an entry that someone posted, telling us to load their picture into google images. And what did I find. The 3 pics I received from him were there with different names and dating websites attached to them. I feel so sick in the stomach. I for one will not be getting scammed again. Be careful ladies.

(431) Mia says:


I’m talking to a us army sgt plate johnny base in kabul aghan.
After 2 days we talk me how much he love and I was his wife to be.
So, I ask him if he can receive or make phone calls he said he will talk to his boss about it.
Next day he say my commander will do everyhig so we can talk by phone.
It will be only a little fond I have to sent him for security porpuse of$185 sent it by westernion .
The installation they will make its called TS2.
So, because I’m not a english ( native) person it was difficile for me to know about his writing skills,butitill the way he express his self just doesn’t mach up for some one who claim to be an american from texas native and more important in the us army.
In the beginning I touch maybe its cause of army he talk that way, but even learning english only for few years now I new something was wrong.
so, I did my research and I found this page them I understand I was talking to a scam artist.
so after I wrote few comments here I ask him this questions;

Whant is you RANK? Answer I’m sgt.
Did you have APO/FPO? Not answer.
Wish is your division? Not answer.
A what unit you belongs to? Answer did you mean my base? 1sr cav. Division.
After we write to me:

I’m sgt
I was at shah joy base in aghan.

1st cav division
during the day we patrol the town a lot.
I also ask him if we can talk by military e-mail address he didn’t answer anything.
After that he insist for me to send the money to this address;
Name; Tracy luckado
City;michael drive
State; truss vile al.
Zip code; 35173

So this zip code is from us? I ask him, he said its from his commander agent state he will receive the moneyndand he will make all the connection by TS2 very fast.
So, I know he is not real, I’m sick in my stomach to thing in people like this.

If some very knows about him or his info please write a comment here so I can feel relive.
His yahoo address is. Platejohnny 98@yahoo.com.

I have chatting with been recently Jasonzube@yahoo.com name Sean G. Sanders. He conversation is very similiar to ALL the above. He’s in the Canandian Army but now stationed in Kabul, Afghanistan. He has a 10yr old daughter. Mom and Dad killed together in a fatal car accident. He contacted me through Zoosk. Then qiuckly removed his profile and request that I do the same. The Msn chats and a few quick phone calls from him. YES…I must say these men really know how to lay it on thick. But, the signs started when 1st..both parents dead…2nd-cant call/security reasons, always a reason why he cant, 3rd- reqst commander for a leave but US army requesting $3000 to send a replacement for a week. oh yeah, he would leave next week! he would wire the money into my account-asked for all my acct info…silly him I’m a tight wod..wrong thing to do. Anywho, we went from talking unlimited via emails, yahoo, video, phone daily to maybe 1 email whenever. Lol.

It hurts a lil but I’m glad I listened to My spirit (GOD) and not allow my flesh and my lonely heart.

Ladies dont ignore the signs…We tend to give excuses for men and we tend to think that if I let this man get away then I’ll never be worth another one…While the devil is a LIAR!!! you are worthy of that SPECIAL MAN for YOU!

Dont allow yourself to be victimized and/or desparate!!!

Part I: Horrible story coming up…
Back on 11-25-2012, I started talking to a “US Army guy” stationed in Kabul, he is the sweetest, handsome, loving and caring man I have ever met. Met him at: badoo.com… thought it was too good to be true at the begining but still went ahead and gave it a try. We have communication every day, got to the point that I decided to upgrade my cell phone for a smart phone to be able to be in contact with him at all times. Well, everything was nice and sweet… we exchanged poems and love letters over the yahoo messenger. It took almost 2 months for him to work me and uncover his true intentions. I got to give it to him, he is good… very smart, very sweet, and patient… never lost his cool even when I was upset with him for stupid reasons. Any way, this week he finally told me that if his leave was approve he will need to pay for his traveling expenses and that he did not have access to his bank account because it is frozen until he is back in the US.

January 23, 2013 at 1:27 am
(437) One More Victim says:

Part II: Horrible story coming up…
I have always thought that if someone asks you for money over the internet it is fake and is a scam, well, this freaking guy worked me good… and before I knew it I gave him my full name, my home address, my cell number and many pictures of myself and my family. God, I am embarrased with myself for falling in love with this jerk. I wish I could tell him off and tell him that I know its all a big fat lie but I’m affraid because he has so much info on me that he might try to do something against me… that is why I’m not mentioning his name here. I am very sorry, dissapointed and frustrated with this whole thing… the worst part is that I’m going to miss him so much after we discontinue communication, I’m a sucker for punishment. So, word of advice to all women using online dating sites… BE CAREFULL! do not give out your info. The internet is not SAFE! Learn from all our mistakes here on this page and DO NOT trust anyone online. To all women, this happens to us because we are lonely and so hugry for love that we forget how bad and mercyless other people can be. Love yourself first! you do NOT need a partner to tell you how good/beautiful you are… go to your mirror and learn to admire your own self, when we finally do that and we accept ourselves as we are then we leave no room for these predators to come into our lives and mess us up even more than what we already are. Good luck to all of us.

well lady’s it seems that it is not only male military personnell being part of these scams now the women are joining in as well.
I have been comunicating with a young lady whom calls herself Sgt Rebecca Rooney, this individual claims to have joined the army for some excitment. she claims to be attached to the british army and is on current deployment in Kabul Afganistan for a period of 2yrs. She claims to be bored and wants out. this girl claims to be single and an orphan of mixed nationality Australian/US, She claims she wants leave and has asked that I request it for her using the following email address, deploymentoffice@london.com now I have received a reply from this address with a genuine british military header, believe it or not but if you click on any interactive button of this address it will take you to a british Minstry Of Defence website and give you genuine information.
I was asked for rebecca’s afghanistan ID number which I was given, and sent it to the deploymentoffice@london.com address.
I then got a response asking for approx US$800 to be sent to england to cover logistics and would be refundable when rebecca got here.
I was suspicious from word go anyway and told this lady so,
I ran an IP trace on both the IP address’es from Rebecca and the deployment office ,
rebeccas ip address came up as being in san fransico not afghanistan
the deployment office’s ip address came up as being in philadelphia not london as you would expect.
in the last email i received from the deployment office I was given a name and address for an individual in UK to whom I was to send the money.
Here is another strange one the address is a genuine Ministry Of Defence address.
am I being just a doubting Dan and thinking this is a scam or is it just possible this might well be genuine, but somehow I doubt it.

Oh dear another one to add to the list. This time it was my poor sister that was fouled by such nastiness. Promising her the earth,marriage and a great life. He never asked her for money, she offered to send him over a gift and he said no but if she wanted to she could send it to a soldier in us who is going to be joining him soon, but not once he asked her for anything, phew, but how long would it have taken him to ask. His name is cpt Jason macmanus. Just wished I knew where he lived. I think this site needs to be out there a bit more for those girls who do get caught.

PLEASE be cautious of a gentleman named Dan, stationed in Afghanistan and claims to be a Special Forces Sergeant. Met him on a Christian dating site. Couldn’t meet before he left for Afghanistan but was supposedly returning in less than 2 more weeks. He tried to have me believe he was given a large sum of cash in Afghanistan and tried to get my address out of me saying he needed someone to ship this to. He even emailed me a video showing the cash and gold he was given. Ladies, PLEASE do not fall prey to these men. It was doing research, asking lots of questions and friends that lead me to this site. All of the stories are too familiar. He has a daughter who must live with her grandmother, he is divorced but claims his wife died a violent death a couple years ago. Photos of him show a very handsome soldier. He claims French is his primary language. 27 years in the service. He is out there claiming to be a devout Christian man who lives his life abiding by the word of God. Right now, he needs to be praying!!!

All ladies

Whether or not u think I’m the real deal as a us military member I want to apologize that u got ur heart broken or scammed out of money. I hope it doesn’t turn u against the pride that is the armed services. Scammers are notorious for riding on big events in the world to make a profit. It’s horrendous that they chose such an event like a conflict to do it. A real military man who joins out of pride or to establish a better life is, for the most part, trained to be a gentleman. We get many benefits and almost everything is paid for. In all branches. As a service man who wants to go into ministry the best idea for a civilian to support the troops is to either meet the genuine article and talk to him casually like a normal high school date or if u want to support them monetarily go to any church of any denomination and they will usually have a support the troops drive. Also there is USO organization that u can volunteer for or contribute goods to kind of like a canned food drive. When I was a sailor we had a good time and now and then a USO box came for us that had candy snakes and prayers and toiletries! Stuff the military doesn’t issue but is an excellent and sweet gesture knowing that there are people in the nation that we don’t even know appreciating our efforts whenever we have the fleeting doubt that we aren’t doing anything. Let me know what u think!

January 29, 2013 at 11:43 am

At Dave – thank you for posting your comments. I will always appreciate what the men/women of the U.S. Military have done for us. Thank you for the information you provide. I hope it will help others out there, like myself, who have been scammed by men claiming to be a member of our military. May God Bless and keep you safe………..DJ

(466) LATISHA says:

I was sent a friend request on my facebook. I never accept friend requests for people I do not know but for some dumb reason I accepted his. We messaged back and forth for about a month. His name is Haylen Bolen and claims to be a soldier in the United States Army stationed in Afghanistan. He completely romanced me, promised to give me the world and marry me if I would bring him home, he claimed to have a very sick mother in Germany and a 9 year old daughter. Fortunately i did NOT send him any money. He claimed he could not use his own money as he was only allowed so much in camp. He told me his mother was in the hospital and his daughter was left with no food or money and when I didnt send it, he became very aggresive and hateful. He took me from his facebook. I guess I should just feel lucky I wasnt stupid enough to fall for sending him the money, although he did make me fall in love with him and my heart is broken! if anyone out there sees this please take notice that these people are predators and after nothing but your money.

I just came out of a 12 year relationship and all I was looking for was love as well and now I am completely brokenhearted

He will only text you on your cell or on yahoo messenger. I met him on Date Hook up. He moved very quickly with all of the nice words and how much he love me. Then he wanted a leave from the army to come see me. He wanted me to pay 1159.00 for his leave. But his leave is earned i found out. He will get upset with you regarding the money. I have confronted him. To send me a picture from his cell to my cell. But he would not do that. He will not talk to you on the phone as he saids they can t talk. PLEASE BEWARE OF THIS SCAMMER.

Just from what has happened to me i have notified all the girls on his other web page about him and I have only received one response so far, but this morning when I checked the page was gone. That is pretty typical. My mom said they did an episode on Dr. Phil about all of this. This person sweet talked me like you wouldnt believe. He told me the exact same thing, that he was heartbroken and would never forgive me for wasting his time. From what I understand there is a whole group of them that sit around in a room and do this to women all day long. I received an email froim his mother and she said she was dying and all she wanted to do was meet me befores she dies as to make sure Haylen was finally going to be happy. He always called me his angel. His daughters name was “Kate”.Just block him. i have decided to start a page on facebook about all of this but it will take me a couple of days to get it set up. I will post it on here so everyone knows where to go. I have a picture of him that I will post with all of his information as well, I am sorry this has happened to you as well, I understand how heartbroken this has made us, and I am mad as hell that people are doing this to us women that are only looking for love and comfort

The guy that’s trying to scam me is SSgt. Shieller Edwards stationed in Kabul Afghanistan….born in New Haven, CT, raised in a “charity” home (red flag), has a masters went to oxford but joined the army when he was 21..now he’s retiring in March…In love and the whole 9 yds….has a daughter and lives on a ranch in Dilworth, MN. When I asked where that was he said initially near Omaha….oh. it must have moved because now it’s 4 miles from Fargo, ND. Where his “Army” base is. ummmm….sorry that doesn’t match up….there’s only an Airforce base in ND! Plus they use the word “stuffs” rather than “stuff” when describing things. I play them and get as much information as I can from them then report them.
I feel really bad for the innocent soldiers and children they use…wish our government could do something about these African scammers!

It’s just fun, I ‘ve been contacted by this guy who pretends to be a famous general of US Army mentioned on Wikipedia by the name David Perkins. As soon as he realized that I’m happily married he changed strategy and involved me into a transaction to buy a beautiful villa in sardinia. Since I found this story really strange, I proposed to him a villa which costs 14.000.000,00 $ and of course he said “Ok, can you handle this business for me?”. So I asked him “don’t you have a lawyer or an advisor?” (Jesus, you are a millioner and you need a stranger to deal with such a purchase?). On that occasion I also specified that he would have never used my bank account for the transiction and from that moment he has disappeared! I confess that , very far from falling in love with such a jerk, I found the “plot” really intringuing and funny…… If he calls again I’m going on with the joke and when he’ll finally ask for my datas I will attach this page(surprise!).
But I’m sure he’s reading this comment rigth now…….

Hi Ladies…here is an update on capt_steve1961@yahoo.com. I checked his IP address and it came up with one in Ireland and one from Sunnyvale Calif. Both were from a blackberry phone. He wanted more pics and to start chatting on messenger, I informed him I couldn’t do that until my security check was complete. This guy had a line a mile long on why his location on dating site Chemistry.com was different from his home (two) one in N.Y and one in Calif. He emailed back that I was going to get him in trouble because he is a blackhawk…and they are not suppose to be on dating sites…lol. I told him I reported him and his profile has vanished….along with two other men that were on that site.

I meet a guy via Badoo called Ryan Wells, who says he is in the US army station in Afghan. We have been chatting for a number of days when he said would I do anything to see him and that it would $2500 for his leave to which I said didn’t have any saving. We carried on chatting for a few more days and then last night he told that he had been on patrol/ mission where 3 of his team including his friend ‘Bob’ were killed. He also said he and the surviving soldiers had found some ammunition which they handed over and some cash which they have split – He asked for my address and phone number to send his share to me to look after – STUPIDLY he had my email address from us chatting and got my address and mobile number. I have since received an email from Apex Worldwide Network saying that a parcel will be delivered to my home – IM SCARED – I don’t want and told him I didn’t want to be involved but he has still given by contact details to someone – I’ve even email the courier and forwarded the email to see if its real – HELP

I just had a 2-3 day “relationship” with a “soldier” (named Tony Payne) that approached me on OKCupid. The moment, in our conversations, he said “you will need to pay subscriber fees, in order to speak to me, on the phone” the RED FLAG went up! I instantly googled HIM, and found out, he was a Scammer. Luckily, I had not given him ANY personal information (my full name, my address, my phone), so I will just ignore him (I deleted the Yahoo Messenger account HE had me create), and block him on OKCupid. It is a REALLY SAD world we live in. Thank God for your website & google! BE CAREFUL LADIES!!!

I have been talking to him for a year now, he asked for money for leave early on, and when I said no, he was fine about it. Kept talking to me for a year, and i thought we were so close, but, recently i sent some money to help with leave, guess what. I havent heard since. I am laughing, but it hurts all the same He earned the little I sent after keeping me company through a bad year. A tired SCAMMER i think. I sent the money to:

Has no friends on his Facebook. Tells you not to tell anyone about your conversations. Claims he is retiring and looking to marry. Claims wife and 2 kids killed in car crash 8 years ago. Says he has one daughter, Skyla, studying law in the UK. Says he is “highly wealthy” – Americans don’t talk like this. Claims his English is poor because he lived mostly in Denmark! Very, very handsome pictures and lots of pictures. Sends Bible verses. Has phoney email and FB accounts. Doesn’t ask for money, but claims to be in love and wants to marry quickly and come live with you. Doesn’t have daughter Skyla on his FB account! THIS GUY IS A FAKE!

I met this ” fake sodier” via Skype. His name is Major general charles Gurganus who claimed to be in Afhganistan. At first i though he was a very sincere man . He send me his “photos” and we used to chat on skype daily in the morning and almost the whole night. He send me thousands of emails. He was a bit open, because he answered almost every question i asked. This foolish thing went on for a whole month, then one morning he tells me hes worried about the son who isnt replying the emails hes been sending him. he gave me the cell phone number of the boy named Romeo with a country code of Ghana. I called the “Boy” who told me that his computer was faulty and also wanted school fees to pay fo his military training. I informed him what the “son” had told me and thats where trouble begun. i was told to send $400,000 dollars to the “Son”, the money will be returned to me in double immediately hes out of the war zone. I sensed danger, i told him that i had a uncle in Ghana who was willing to help the son. i told him to give me the direction where the son was and i would call my uncle to go an check on him. He refused completely and told me just to send the cash myself, thats when i cut communication with him. His email adress is Generalcharlesgurganus@yahoo.om. Be aware of him too.

Well I was going through all these contact issues with militay soliders. I just met one, he said his name is General CHarles H Jacoby jr. Have the same birthday as the real Genral… But I know from day one it’s a scam. So I decided to play along with it. First he said he lost his wife Grace 4yrs ago and he only left with one son William. He said he cannot love again, but when he see me he he found his angel.. To me I been in love for 11yrs with my boyfriend soon to be husband. Anyway. He aske for my pics I give. And I ask for his he give me only one. So he keep asking me but this time I refuse.. He would say how much he loves me and wont leave me etc. it happen so he told me to ask his son Williams to send me his pic which I did… But when I receive the pic it’s was 3 different people pic.. U did confront him, he denied as always never come straight. All of a sudden william Birthday was the next to days and he want money for school I said to myself this man is so dumb. Email addres don’t add up. Anyway I ignore the money part.. He go to the extreme of opening a new profile and claim he a doctor not knowing I know it’s him… He said he own to house one in washington and Miami… But anyway he still on my Skype and am just going with the flow… I do hope these men be caught and bring to justice…as for now I will keep you up upto date oh and I forget he want me to be the mother of his children and wants to marry me… This fake genreal claiming the wrong tree..

His Grammar is bad but how he pronounces his sentences is to say the least terrible. within a day he Decided I was the one he was madly in love with me and couldn’t sleep or think about anything but me .Come on I am 51 years old not born yesterday. He says he is 48 comes from Los Angeles California can you tell me if it is true or is is a con as I can find him anywhere else.

Okay. I’m here to help. A soldier does not require any money for “applying for leave.” A Soldier puts in for leave through his chain of command. If a soldier has been on deployment for more than 9 months the flight home is free. Second depending on where a Soldier is located on deployment the internet is free through the MWR. A Soldier can also use their own money (hey on deployment it’s a tax free pay check plus combat pay) to buy afgan pay as you go cell phones, and sometimes sign up for their own internet service. Food is free. There is usually a small PX to shop at or the local nationals who sell their wares at a make shift Bazzar (shopping area.) Every soldier that I have served with on deployment never asked a stranger for money. If anything just a care package with their favorite things (that aren’t available there.) I used to be in the Army. I’ve served in Afghanistan. There is big paychecks to be made on deployment. Don’t fall for the stupid spammers.

Hai, does anybody know a Edwin Gabriel? I’m writing with him for some more then2 weeks now and now he asks me to write a letter for his leave. I had some suspision already because he is so very romantic and wants to mary me blah blah blah. That’s how I came on this site. So I asked him if I had to pay money for the request and he said yes, but he was going to pay me back when he would visit me. He tried to send me a gift for Val’s day but his card was declined (yeah sure). So I told him that he had to look for antoher girl because I don’t have any money. Now he says that I think he’s a liar and that our relationsship won’t work if I act like this. Stupid as I am I sent him my private address earlier and now I regret it. But before I did pay money the red alarm went of in my head and I looked on the internet. Because of you girls, thanx for your stories, they really helped me put everything in order. The second name he mentioned is Rick Wilson, to who’m I had to send the request for leave. Sorry for my bad English but I’m Dutch. So does anybody know the name Edwin Gabriel of Rick Wilson?

Hello every one, i have been through series of spell caster and no one of them has been able to get my lost love of two years back which i cherish so much, then i lost all hopes and decided to let go. Then i pop into this email address on the internet that he is capable of bringing back lost love no matter how far and how worse the condition may have been and then i decided to give it a try and the to my greatest surprise it worked for me. How he did it, i don’t know till now that we are about getting married and he told me that nothing can separate us and that the spell is only working in accordance with my heart desire. i can never thank him enough because what he did for me was unbelievable, i would strongly advice the use of his services when it come to getting ex back. i am talking about priestandrew91@yahoo.com, i don’t know if any of you have heard of him.

Similar story, poor grammar or English as second language…said he was born in Germany has dual passports (instead of citizenship) asked me to delete my date profile starts calling me “babe” after 2 days…then wants my address so he can send me nice gift. I told him to email me from his military email address…he asks if I want him to get in trouble. I told him both my nephews emailed me from mil email….my stomach is churning I sense something wrong…then he asks for my nephews email address. I modified it slightly a few minutes later he sent me “his mil email address”… Same format as the one I sent him. I told him unless he sent me email from his mil account no more …he said ok….BTW, he wanted my address so he could order a laptop to talk to me more he would order so I could pick up and ship to him…..Warning warning…..his email is kknox1955@yahoo.com

Here is another one for you ladies: Donald Brandley donaldbrandley@yahoo.com. Afghanistan. Contacted me two weeks ago via yahoo chat. New my Email somehow. Gave me personal Email, said it’s easier to contact via personal Email. Single, ready to settle, supposedly 49 from VA. Good looking man on pictures, real person, about 6 images. No records found in VA. What alerted me, he would write not very literate messages with no punctuation and then very sweet love letters, like two different people wrote it. I googled the text, they all come from websites, like lovingyou.com, and others. Then he told me he asked commander to leave and be coming home on march 10. Asked for my home address to send package via Military Carrier, gave me this Email: us.carrier03@hotmail.com…/ and number 818-453-2114. That was it, I told him what MIL carrier would use hotmail acct. I called the number in CA – no answer but feels like someone picked up and was not talking. I gave him FBI address in DC to send his “luggage” and contacted my friend in Pentagon, who told me this is complete scam. HAVE NO DOUBTS PLEASE – it is ALL SCAM!!!!. But here is my real concern – who is that real person on pictures and what does he know about his images being used? What can we do about that? Is there database we can send it to alert real person/soldier?

(565) lisa says:

Ladies, it gets better – I didn’t know but you can do Google search for images now, just like you search for words. So I Googled all the images he sent me of himself supposedly, and all are from the HBO show “Generation Kill” with bunch of good looking marines. Well at least I’m at peace that those are not images of real unsuspecting people in service that some idiot using for scam..

there’s site where you can search for US soldier in service if you want to know if they are real, but I think NONE of them are real.

Hi there, I’m from Canada and my “hubby-to-be” got me going for a couple of days, but my son found this website, so long story short, I did chat with him until I’ve got all the info. to hopefully catch him, He claims he is Davin LLyod and in Kabul……..his Yahoo e-mail is: Davin.LLyod@yahoo.com of course he is a widower with no parents and a 15 year old boy named Justin, his wife’s name was Kim. who died 3 years ago…..he wanted to send him money today, so here’s the person I’m supposed to send it to: Ann Michelle, Nigeria, postal code 234036……these guys are very good at this, his english was almost perfect……lol….good luck to them trying to continue this…………

February 28, 2013 at 1:14 pm
(567) mary says:

Me again, I’ve copied all the beginning of this page where it says how they scam you and what to watch for, I did delete the name of the informer and the site where you can report them, ust in case they go after him , I’ve sent and e-mail to my “hubby” with a copy of it and told him that I have friends in the military and in the police force and that all my info. and pictures that were on the dating site and also on my g-mail account is not really me because I have experience in this, so my girlfriend is on the pictures………and told him I can’t beleive how sad it is that he sank this low……anyways, he answered me with this: GOOD FOR YOU HUN…

Answer to Kathleen (536) – Google his images, and Google the text he sends you, specifically very nice love letters. You will see where it is coming from. He is NOT real.

(569) Mary says:

So yesterday after all this I had another chat with my scammer……he called me a coward for not answering his “BUZZ” on yahoo, then he wanted to be just friends……I think they have some brain demage as well…..lol…….after his pictures were all for a nice white army soldier……now he told me he was black.!!….also he said sorry and apologized and said he’s never done this before to anybody and feels really bad……and he doesn’t want my money…..lol……then he called me a lier for saying it’s not my name on there or my picture………so he wanted to know what it is…….over my dead body………and of course he loves me and will comit suicide if I leave him., etc………..and the story goes on and on………

March 1, 2013 at 1:14 pm
(570) lisa says:

Mary, I think he does not even remember what images he sent to you and does not bother to go to his previous Emails to check. After I googled the images my scammer sent to me, I found out it was of two different people!! LOL! Handsome men in camouflage. My guess they have to send those Emails to so many women to increase the chances of sucking the money from them, they do not bother to stick to the story. Plus, who knows how much they can read or write…??

(571) Converned says:

@Nancy C – he may not be a scammer but he’s definitely a player. I’ve also been talking to him for a while and he tells me the same crap. Met him on Plenty of Fish. He’s also on Speeddate with the same dating profile but a picture of a different man than the one on POF. He hasn’t asked me for anything either but he’s playing games either way. I’m still talking to him just to see where this goes. If you’re interested in seeing the information that I have, I’d be happy to share it with you. Contact me at wigmama33@hotmail.com.

So i met this handsome guy thru a datingsite called MIU Meet. He used a name called Paul Johnson. Sayd he was a widow and was left with a 14 yr old daughter. He asked me to add him in yahoo messanger. I did as he asked and everyday he kept chatting with me and always on the same time. To make it short, the guy was goodlooking & very smart. He even made id’s in yahoo & told me i should chat with his sister Jenny & his daughter Wendy. After a few days he asked me to buy his daughter’s birthday gift cause he was in Libya. A laptop & a iphone lol. I told him nope, cant help there. Next day he send me a email says he needed my address cause he wants to send a special diplomatic courier to bring me $ 7.800.000 . Says it was oil money since he invested in oil. I never get in to it and when i started to ask him questions like divisions & ranks he got stuck and thats when i deleted him in yahoo messanger!

Hallo.Nazywam August Violetta. I’m Polish, but I live for 18 years in Germany. In November 2012 I met at the German American soldier dating George Haggard. It was a crook but I have found this a little later, as he wanted to extort money from me. I gave him the no. Previously, however, has sent me gifts to take home because I gave him my address / in my naivety /. later tried to talk me even as John Mueller but I sensed it right away. These are all scammers. I do not speak English translation is from google. They also hunt for women in Germany and Poland, because I found them on this site. greeting to all women around the world. Beware, we want to be loved and they are trying to deceive us. Regards Viola.

(586) Innocent but silly lady says:

Ladies! I am grateful for my God I have found this website and comments you left. However, it is late to get my money back which I sent it through Western Union to issue “legal” certificates for successful ” partnership”. All I know now that those guys do a brilliant job to attract all women around the world and make own money. One of them whose name is General David Mark ( The US Military General) has a great talent to write you love e-mails and manipulate well with your feelings to achieve his aim. He is also in touch with another guy from Ghana (Dr. Caesar Rafael) (maybe he is the same one), who is ” the Protocol Officer” in MSEAL SECURITY AND BANKING) in Ghana.That man has a specific accent as he is not a native one in terms of our telephone conversations. They do their best on submitting you all documents and receipts which look very trustful that each person might think it is a real deal. I have been scammed by them since November, 2012 and still waiting for my refunds… I am pretty sure now they use their means for making money from you to complete the value project on “earning” gold, minerals and metals for the equal partnership. Please, be aware, all is a fake, and if you see the handsome photos of a man in the US Army Uniform, don’t think he is a real one. i feel very sorry for myself that I did not pay attention on some signs and lost my dollars. I am gonna send my complains to the Federal Office but don’t think i will be successful in finding any info about these DEVILS.

It’s embarrassing, I’m Spanish and contacted me a few weeks ago through a website an American soldier in Afghanistan …. recovering from a wound in his leg … sent me photos of her in the camp and his wound. send me .. beautiful love letters and says he needs time to recover out of the war, they want to know … I have to send a letter to this address .. militarygovernment@post.com … requesting permission to the saying that I’m his girlfriend …. control the mail and they say I have to send some data and I’ll have to send money so he can come …. I have researched and have come to this page …. the false name of this soldier is carrying …. stascheden combat advisor garsmir … Afghanistan … if a woman falls in their networks … very carefully … it is shameful that soldiers used to perform these deceptions ….

March 21, 2013 at 5:53 pm
(589) innocent lady again says:

I am very glad Lola that you have checked this website. It is very clever of you to search about these fucking scammers! Anyway, be always careful… It was his second attempt when he asked for the money cause for the first time I stopped any connections with him for 2 months due to his money interest.. However, his frequent promises to refund me immediately if I send the money, made me “help” him and I send it through Western Union. This is another sign for the fake. He also wrote he was wounded and waited for a recover, and he would come once the claim would be completed… stupid me..when you have more money, you try to share with people showing yourself own generosity…but… what for… and whom.. to the Liars and Thieves!!

I was so stupid not to understand 1) they are using via Western union, 2) the accent of that man was probably Nigerian or Ghananian. I trusted him so much and believed he refunded me, Oooh, Feel sorry for myself that it was easy to say good bye to my 4000$!!!

Well, like a lot of you, i also met a soldier online, he goes by the name Sergeant Jeffery Garcia. His email is jffe.gar@gmail.com or lovheartman@live.com
He hasn’t asked for money yet, but he did ask me to write an email to ask for a leave to this address: dept.transit@usa.com
Does this soldier sounds familiar to anyone?
I know he is a fake, cause i met a girl on the datingsite who was chatting to him to, with the same story! So watch out for him!!

March 23, 2013 at 2:45 pm
(593) innocent lady says:

Hi, Eliz,
In my opinion stop any connections/conversations with him, I hope after the last call, he won’t disturb you anymore. However, if he tries to reach you, don’t be afraid. He does not have enough money to come, believe me. My lovely friend promised me to come many times…Tell him you will send the complain to the US Federal Office. Be brave but diplomatic if they insist on further actions. Be aware, they sit and send hundreds of Skype contacts and e-mails per a day. If you are strong, they can not do anything!! I have stopped all contacts as I had been asked to pay them 16500 Euro(not dollars!) for the future “partnership”. It took me 4 months to get rid of them…Some of them work in a group, even they split responsibilities to call or write messages to people. I hope you are the US Citizen, and your Embassy or Government employees will help you. My situation is a bit different. Will be happy for you if my advice helps!

March 26, 2013 at 9:02 pm
(594) mmm123 says:

I am currently in contact with a “US soldier” deployed in Afghanistan, and his story is very similar to all listed below. He also did tell me about this fee that i would need to pay if i want to see him bla bla bla,
So i send him links to websites like this where women describe their encounters with liars like that, and he very calmly explained that where is the commanders (or someone like that ,can’t remember) are kinda corrupted and have their own rules or whatever – i wasnt really interested cause as soon as he told me about the money i was never going to send it of course,
anyhow, i told him that he must be joking if he thinks i am going to pay for something like that and added that i am actually broke and also would love some stranger to send me some cash :)
the thing is, he said “lets not talk about it anymore” so it kinda confused me cause i thought he would just stop talking to me but he didnt,
Well i guess there is no harm in emailing each other cause i actually enjoy conversations with him but there is no way i would send my hard earned money to some stranger,
I just wanted you guys to check if email name@diplomats.com is legit (although im sure it’s not) but i am just curious, and the funny thing is this person has sent me a form to fill in but he doesnt asks me to pay for anything – not yet anyway, and i havent fill it in of course because im not giving my address to anyone

I would appreciate any comments :)

March 27, 2013 at 7:19 am
(595) mmm123 says:

Thank you for your reply Eliz,
I will definately not be sending any money anywhere cause that would be just stupid, and i have made that very clear to him and he seems to be ok with it so far, although i dont understand why is he still in contact with me if that was the whole reason he contacted me in the first place, I mean there is no way i will give anybody any money even if I had loads of them and he knows it,
I do know he is not real but as i have mentioned before i do enjoy conversations with him although i do realize that he is being nice just to try to change my mind although he was never presurising me,
I have seen him on skype and i know he is the guy from the pictures so he must be some kind of american or whatever (i mean his english is very good and he is very eloqent in his emails) trying (not too hard :) ) to get some money form people,
I tell you one thing though, the whole thing is very well crafted and he must be a really good liar but im not fallling for that so i guess it’s fine,
We’ll see what he will do next :)

March 27, 2013 at 10:37 am
(596) mmm123 says:

Thank you for the warning Eliz but genraly i am a very suspicious person if it comes to people that i meet online.
i still i didnt stop this farse though because overall i liked “his thinking” and he wasnt really telling me he loves me or that sort of stuff but i can not be wasting my precious time like that, can I? ;)
anyway, who cares now?
to be quite honest i am over it actually and not interested anymore, it is clearly a scammer and we women have to sometimes be a bit more stronger as we do melt when we get few nice words from a guy even someone who we’ve never even seen with our own eyes but we still want to believe it is somehow true, but hey! i hope this website will help stop women from sending money to those basterds cause it is so wrong, and It is crazy to trust people from internet

Just wanted to let you know that some of the pics these guys send are from the internet. You know now a days you can google any kind of pic. If you google, “sick kid in hosptial bed” that’s what you’ll get. A bunch of pics of this theme. These men, aka soldiers, including mine, David Bassey, have a FB profile pics from an online website. Why don’t you guys google the image they send you as I did? Go to google and on the top left corner you will see the word, “image”, click it and then click the “camera” symbol in the search field, It’s going to ask you to upload your photo so it can seach it. Oh, but before you google the image, make sure you uploaded the picture you want to search to your computer or phone, (the picture he sent you), and then uploaded to your search engine in the image section of google. I hope this is clear enough for you guys. If not, you can email me at dorianroman@aol.com and I’ll definitely help you out but it’s easy. Just like Nev does in the MTV program from “CATFISH” It’s just like googling a word only it’s a picture. Good luck you guys; don’t let anyone rob you of your hard earned money. Especially someone you’ve never met.

My best Regards,

my Soldier is real :)
Yes I do have to send him a lot of money but he is deployed to Africa and needs alot of things to make his life easier. When he comes home we are getting married!!! I’m not of age yet but by the time he is out of the military (In 3 years) I will be. It’s so sad that he has to be gone so long…. But I mostly use my daddy’s credit card…
and he ships me things like laptops and cellphones for me to resend to him! I am honored to serve him and can’t wait to get married to him when I turn 18 and he comes home to me!!!

NO soldier is going to ask for money to be sent by a person he “loves” and never met. they have the money and if needed family to send care packages. he is using you to get whatever he can from you for as long as he can. if you haven’t read many of the posts above you should. i bet you will find many things sound too familiar. ask yourself some questions- do you talk on the phone? do you see him on cam and talk to him live? is all his family dead or to sick to help him? did he say he loves you the first month ( being nice many say it in 1 week) ? did he soon after start asking for money? on the site you met him does he have few friends and mostly female? are there pictures on his page just in soldier uniforms or are there also family and friend pictures? please really think hard about sending more money and talk to you dad to check into this.

Jennifer 599. Your so called soldier is a fake. You are receiving goods paid for with stolen credit card information. Someone knows where these items are going because in the end they will see their card has been fraudulently used and they will find out with what firm and where the delivery went to. You are the sucker at the end if the line so will get the blame and the scammer gets the goods and sells them off. You risk being sent prison for fraud. You have been warned now and can no longer plead innocence. Believe me I am an expert and know all the scams.

If you put that text into a Google search you will find he has hundreds of male and female profiles. He will only have a small statistical result,from each one but will have a number of hits to scam from and maybe get money from one or two.

I added all the email addresses above also. In a wider frame will discover all the scam profiles

I met a supposed soldier online and of course he begins to fall in love with me and claims that I was brought into his path for a reason. He writes pretty well. Soon he told me that he would like to meet me and he would request a leave, however, I have to give him my full name and address and then there will be a fee to apply for his leave. I told him from knowledge that a soldier earns a leave and for emergency purposes, he will be granted a leave from his superiors. Well, the man said I will not associate myself with one who doesn’t trust him and I responded I will now associate myself with liars and scammers. I tell you these individuals are so confident and believe every woman waits to hear those three little words. What is wrong with this world?

watch the videos above & you will see exactly what I mean.

Ladies, beware.

(623) Betty says:

Frank Debran Willson did not get any money from me. it was too fishy, the request for his transit leave he asked me to email for him came back with a General Richard Hull as the commanding officer of the Transit leave dept. He indicated he was Spanish so I put the somewhat broken English aside, but slang he never understood, and when confronted about the general thing he said that I should never have talked to his general that way. Then I asked how he knew what I said and he said the office forwarded it to his military address. He gave me APO MOS all that rot but it just seemed too much and when I told him if he was real I would be glad to meet him when he got home, he immediately became profane. Short-lived love. I am glad I did not fall for that cock and bull story only wish I had enough intelligence to string him along so I could turn him in for fraud. Since no money was involved all I can do is warn you. I hope the real Frank Debran does exist and is safe.

Be careful with a guy name Bill Ruddock from Texas posing as a Sargent in the Army. His email address is bill_ruddock101@ymail.com. I met him from Match.com . He sent me a picture in uniform with a name tag James Parker. He said he was retiring in the next 3 months and he was looking for a wife to come home to. We communicated in the dating website as what they asked clients to do. At first, he was very polite and only answered what I asked about him in short sentences. And he always say * Ohh no or Ohh yes to everything. I asked him for his phone # he said he had one but it was broken when it fell and if I was willing to send him one. I told him that he can buy it from the internet and he said all his money are in the state. I told him its BS because I was a Navy Brat for 21 years stationed in London and Japan and I had a saving and checking account. And right there I told him to stop the communication between us immediately because he was no good soldier and a liar at that.. I told him that I had been there done that and I was not stupid.

O M G I’ve been scammed. Watch out for a Peter gruver43 using both hotmail and yahoo email addresses. Wanted me to send $500 a week to help him build up his supplies, gave me a Barclays Bank account. He went crazy at me for asking a friend in the Met to check it out. Now he’s after Ł3k to request leave so he can set up home with me. Gutted ice wasted my time, if its too good to be true it usually is. I really hope the pics he sent aren’t of a deceased soldier. Lesson learned, the hard way.

LUIS APONTE OTANO – “Captain in the US Army, currently deployed in Kabul, Afghanastan”.

Met through dating site, Mingle 2. Charmed me very quickly with lovely emails & poems, sent heaps of pictures of himself in uniform etc., chatted online.

Within weeks asked me to marry him, but I would need to email a support letter to his superiors (which I foolishly did) to support his application for Transit Leave, for conjugal reasons.

E-Mail received stating if I paid $3064 through Western Union, he would be released within 72 hours & could fly to Australia. Googled the “US Army Headquarters” address, which was just a normal house in suburbia, North Carolina. Googled the recipients name – a woman who had been previously imprisoned for embezzlement & had not paid $6000 in child support.

So his bank in UK asks me to give my ID, my name…. and also my account details….. I didn’t do it yet. How do you think about it?He never asked me money. He has a son in UK, he’s widowed, 47yeras old and he wants to invest his money in my country after leaving the Army…..

this is really something for the simple reason I had a scammer using a soldiers pic ask me to let him deposit money into my bank account & he asked me for my banking details, but I am wise to all of these scams now & checked into it & if you do this you will be a part of the plan & could be in trouble for doing this for money laundering etc: etc:
Everyone please be careful these scammers will wait & feed you love in poems & sweet words, but they will eventually ask from money or something.
become educated because soldiers do NOT have time to be on dating sites.

Yes the first night asked me to come of the dating site has pledged his dying love hasn’t asked to come live with me wants me to meet him october at the airport ive had 3 4 photos 3 of them with the same friends even a pic of his 6 yr old boy. He didnt come right out and asked for money but told me his nanny hadnt been paid so I repiled tell her to get a pay day loan. He told me that he wasnt happy and not to talk to him that day. I then looked into this and found this website we spoke last night by email he told me to carry on. With my on line investigation his grammer was also crap I also told him to look and read what is on here even sent him the link he hopes I find a good. Man well ive been on badoo plenty of fish and ive never come accross this before im shocked and feel sick that guys can do this well all I can say is his lost taught me a lesson on line dating wont ever touch it again

(655) Janet says:

(648) beech54 I hear you. I got stung too & I wasn’t searching for love, not online love, cos I do not trust easy & the worst of it was I was not even on dating sites only Facebook & what was strictly friendship to me turned into a love & respect for the man who sent me photos on photos & now seeing so many Soldiers & Marines being used by the bad guys, it huts like hell, cos they are trying to protect us & their identities are being stolen & abused…1 out of 4 are scammers, thats too much of a risk for me.
Ladies beware, because to find love online is not the right thing to do.
I know it shocked me into deep depression & now my dreams have turned into nightmares.

Please ladies take note.

I feel sorry for the pics of the guys they are using and the little boy. I really does make me feel sick.

There are NO US or UK soldiers in Syria or Mali.
Special Forces soldiers NEVER tell any one what they do or where they are.
Soldiers in Afghanistan have NO TIME for dating sites and messages to strangers LIKE YOU.
NOT A SINGLE POST ABOVE is a real soldier.
Generals are NOT on the Internet hunting for women or a wife.
Anyone who suddenly sends a message claiming to be military, and gives an email address, is a scammer who wants you off the site safety.
Use Google to search for the email address you are sent, and a negative result is NOT an OK signal. I added all above email addresses to Scamwarners website.
Save the photos you are sent to desktop and enter them to a Google image search by dragging them across to the box. Right button click should also give you a Google image search option.
Search for message text in Google. It may work for phrases in chat , but also search for names you are given.
Any mention of Western Union, MoneyGram, money requests of any sort, or paying for leave is a scam.
Enter the email address to this tool. http://www.romancescam.com/results.php
Any mention of Africa means it is a scam.
+44 70xxxxxx etc is NOT a UK number IT IS REDIRECT TO AFRICA.

The second guy claims to be in the US Army by the name of Richard Kyle Clark… Who is deployed in South Africa…..But he used “Rich” on Badoo and Kyle Clark on Facebook …. Claims to be a widower and hurt by many women using him for sex and money…. And that his dad lived in my city taking care of his son…. His Facebook seemed reliable but I didn’t have access to some pics… We talked lots over Xmas…. Telling me….
Good Morning Baby so sorry had to Sleep off its been Hectic over here though., Miss you and its kinda Sunny over here., We always need to be happy no matter the Challenges sweetie… That’s the Power of Love always feeling ones Soul and that someone’s their thinking about us., Its so cute., Say Hi to the Kids though… To me Having feelings for someone isn’t all about her Outside Beauty., A Lady Might be Beautiful on the Outside and be so wicked on the Inside and to me the Inside of a Woman matters to me., Like Her Attitudes and so on, That’s the Quality of a good Woman., When she’s so adorable, Kind, Caring, Loving, Honest and Awesome that’s all i want and that’s the Definition of my Beauty Queen.. All amazing things to hear…
. He asked me for money as he “left all of his stuff in the US” and had to find his own way home or wait until his “tour” was done…. I told him no … That I financially can’t…. He tried to make me feel guilty and that no one cared whether he lived or died….. I turned the tables and sent him pictures of my bills….( I blacked out acct numbers) and told him how on earth dies he expect me to come up with 2500…. He even tried to guilt me into getting a loan… Which he promised to pay back with interest…. NOT HAPPENING!!!

Finishing comment…..I thought that he was real as his pics were of same guy and the ones in his uniform had his name…. He says he was an engineer who worked on the electrical grid…. He stated that his son lived in my city with Kyles dad as he is a widower… We talked less frequently when I told him no to sending money…. Then one day out of blue…. No more Facebook…. And is not responding to my emails…. So glad now that I didn’t send money and wouldn’t have if I had the money….
Look out for KyleRich4040@yahoo.com

(664) KimN says:

Finishing story…. I told him no…. Then suddenly I hear nothing… So I emailed him and Facebooked him calling him a liar… Then suddenly he messaged me saying… He had been in a coma… And how dare i call him a liar!! And that he was sick and needed to leave… He begged me… I still said no… He then tried to say he was going to be put in jail if he didnt pay his commanding officer back…i still said no….He did finally give up on asking…. We talked for abit… Then suddenly there was no more Facebook …. And his pics seemed so real…. His uniform had his name on it…but i did notice some grammatical errors in his speech… I just thought he was busy typing fast while at work And has not returned my emails…. Now I know why….. I’m glad I never sent money… In any form… So ladies be wary of

I have been talking to a guy for almost 4 months now. He has never changed anything he has told me, never asked me for money and wants to come on leave to spend time with me. I was given a link to US Military website to request leave as his partner. On the website, it states that a deposit of Ł1000 is required but is refundable 3 days of the soldier arriving. I queried this and was sent the details of the RAF base. I have the infantry division, tag number, APO number of the said soldier. However, I have been given the name of the soldier dealing with the leave request but I have to deposit the 1k via Western Union in the UAE. Can anyone confirm if this is procedure.

I have recently been talking to a Lewis Jordan who contacted me on a dating site. we have only been talking for 2 weeks and he says I am the love of his life. he says he is a widow whose wife died of cancer and he has 2 children. I was hoping he was genuine but after reading these stories not sure. he did mention paying for his flight home but I m not sending any money. has anyone heard of him before?

May 12, 2013 at 6:39 pm

lynn if you haven’t read all the posts you need to do so now. you have put down many of the warning signs the others are putting. the names change put the stories are the same. they send a message, about 1-2 weeks (if that long) they are in love, sad family story, kids and alone. the biggest red light is asking for money or paying for something for him. block him and stay clear of that scammer.

(676) Cher says:

Hi, here’s a good one for you.
I was contacted a week ago ‘out of the blue’ by a guy claiming that he is a US soldier serving in Kabul, Afgan who happened to come across my profile whilst checking what was new on his homepage. Our chats are quite brief and as yet he has not asked for any money etc, however the usual applies – poor grammar, not answering questions etc.
Alarm bells sounded immediately as when he originally contacted me he was Julius Scott and now changed to Scott Walden (obviously deleting his profile as Julius Scott on facebook). I have also found other names he has used :- Julius Scott, Scott Weldon, Frost Weldon Scott and Scott Kelvin.
I would like to know if anyone else knows him.

May 14, 2013 at 7:28 am
(677) Cher says:

All the usual signs apply to a US soldier stationed in Kabul , Afgan who has recently contacted me.
These are the names I have found he has used so far -

Julius Scott
Scott Walden
Frost Scott Walden
Scott Kelvin

Does anyone else know him?

May 14, 2013 at 7:59 pm
(678) Janine says:

Cher, he is a scammer and has used many names. Report him
Be aware everyone.
I went and checked out the Videos up on this page the other day.

Take a look and you will be amazed at the soldiers being abused by scammers.
Tell your friends be alert from these people, because army men do NOT have time to socialize & if they do they share moments with their kin only.
I know because I have army family.

Ladies. I really need the email addresses that the scammer gives you and if you can- the links to the profiles. PLEASE POST THEM. I copy and paste them To scamwarners ( http://www.scamwarners.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=69271 ). Often then, you will find them if you do a Google search and you will also, possibly, find the answers to your questions if I can. I do this to warn victims.

May 18, 2013 at 3:14 pm

Post 662. a@r.
I really need the details and email addresses used by your scammer/ Gen Raymond Odierno is not reduced to fixing leave for soldiers/ .Soldiers pay nothing for leave and you can’t ask. They get leave when entitled to and only when their service allows it . More important is for me to know the website you saw so we can get it shut down. The Army has no interest in what soldiers do when on leave or where they go. It can be Suffolk, or Toytown with Big Ears and Noddy/ To be realistic- most soldiers on leave will go HOME TO FAMILY and not jetting around the world to see YOU- a total stranger on the Internet who neither of you have actually met and do not know personally.

(695) Marion says:

Here is a list of answers to some of the most common types of scams:

1. Soldiers and their loved ones are not charged money so that the Soldier can go on leave.

2. No one is required to request leave on behalf of a Soldier.

3. A General Officer will not correspond with you on behalf of a Soldier planning to take leave.

4. A General Officer will not be a member of an internet dating site.

5. Soldiers are not charged money for secure communications or leave.

6. Soldiers do not need permission to get married.

7. Soldiers do not have to pay for early retirement.

8. Soldiers have medical insurance, which pays for their medical costs when treated at civilian health care facilities worldwide – family and friends do not need to pay their medical expenses.

9. Military aircraft are not used to transport Privately Owned Vehicles.

10. Army financial offices are not used to help Soldiers buy or sell items of any kind.

11. Soldiers deployed to Combat Zones do not need to solicit money from the public to feed or house their troops.

12. Deployed Soldiers do not find large unclaimed sums of money and do not need your help to get that money out of the country.

Anyone who tells you one of the above-listed conditions/circumstances is likely posing as a Soldier and trying to steal money from you.

May 19, 2013 at 12:23 pm
(696) Marion says:

These scammers are bad ass people who prey on women & men.
Make yourself wise to it all, for the simple reason Soldiers who have ranks do not be on dating sites. I have Army Family & I know !!

“Red Flag” buzz words used by these criminals: Saying they are on a Peace Keeping Mission, Looking for honest woman, parent’s deceased, wife deceased, child being cared for by nanny or other guardian, profess their love almost immediately, refer to you as “my love”, “my darling” or any other affectionate term almost immediately, telling you they cannot wait to be with you, telling you they cannot talk on the phone or via webcam due to security reasons, or telling you they are sending you something (money, jewelry) through a diplomat.

Finally, they claim to be a US Army Soldier; however, their English and grammar do not match that of someone born and raised in the United States.

This makes me so worried! I was contacted from a person claiming he is a soldier in Kabul, he says his name is Lewis Smith. He says he is 47 years old and has a 17 and 20 year old kids. He says his wife died 5 years ago of cancer and his sister is looking after his kids. He says he was born and raised in Michigan. He has not asked for money but he has already “claimed” his love for me. Calling me babe, Hun and baby. Said he can’t see his life without me! I thought that was a bit to fast and he sounded way to good to be true! I am so glad I found this website! What is wrong with these people, the scary thing is they are using other guys photos.

I met a guy on match using the name staff sergeant leonard stuart james. Same story as the ones posted here.. wife got into cocaine, she sold everything. He divorced her, froze his accounts in the US, etc. He told a sad story… his parents and daughter were killed in an accident in hawaii while on vacation. Terrible grammar and spelling. Used babe, darling, “sweedy” lol. The guy cant even spell sweetie correctly. He said his bday is coming up and it would be nice to open a care package from the states. He asked for dry milk, coffee, creamer, cookies. Gave me an address in ghana where a certain diplomat who cares about the army is currently stationed. He said the diplomat will deliver the box personally. I emailed the diplomat. He responded saying he is working with former UN secretary general Kofi Anan in ghana and would deliver the box to kabul. I sent the box because the stuff are basic things. Then Sgt James asked for a very fancy mobile phone so we can talk. He sent me the link. Told him i cant buy it for him. It was over $500. He seems cool with it. Continues to call me babe but i was starting to suspect someghing is not right. I never returned the affectionate words. It had only been a week! I sent the care package because i thought i was helping a soldier who is serving our country. Today, he asked for Nike shoes. Sent me links. One was blue, the other is green,and the third choice was red. Said the green will go with his uniform. Lol. Go figure! And the size is 8.5. Lol! He must think im stupid. Anyway, dont send anything period.

I was never contacted on Facebook, but based on what I’ve read here, these scammers have pages on Facebook with fake photos. So I searched for photos of the guy I thought I was sending a care package to. I found the photo(s) on Facebook. I wonder who the person on this photo is and if he has any clue that his photos have been stolen and are being used by scammers on online dating sites. I hope he is not one of our fallen soldiers. Makes me sick just to think. Is there a way to find out and get the word to him and or his family?

I know I’m putting a lot of information here, but I hope some of this help others who, like me, was stunned to learn that I have been had. I was embarrassed at first at how gullible I was… but also sickened that my compassion was taken advantaged of. I helped a lot of people, especially children, through a charity I helped create. I am respected in the community and it’s embarrassing to admit that I fell into a scam. But, as the movie “A Few Good Men” would say…. “YOU MESS WITH THE WRONG MARINE!”… hahaha! Ladies, let’s all be proactive and help prevent these things from happening again.

I reported to the USPS the package I sent to Ghana and asked for help. Below is the response I received. I thought I would share. Hope it’s helpful to someone out there.

It scares me to read all these posts. I too have been communicating with a sgr Jeffrey Andres Patterson. He is stationed in Afghanistan. He is 51, retiring next year. He is divorced and has 1 grown, married child. He too has been saying that he is falling for me. He’s not shy about answering questions I ask. He is very articulate. That was one of the things that caught my attention.
He did talk to me about the satellite phone thing too. But said that if I didn’t want to do it I did have to not to worry about it and that the way we are talking is working for us. I had told him earlier in our conversation that I was a single mom of three and had no money what so ever. that i live check to check. I made it very clear that i had no money. I had a bad experience with a NON military creep, who wanted money. I ran from him quickly. So I told him I was on the fence about alot of things. I also told him about the other guy too. I asked him about if there was a fee. He said there was a reg. fee. I told him I would not be able to pay that. He in turn said that would pay for it (however via transfer to my account by his financier). He had basically said that he has money. It sound simullar but different at the same time. Is there a way to find out if these people exist for real with out costing money?? Is he a fake???

720- Lori
they are learning the way to talk by talking with each of us who fall prey and learning the way we put sentences together.
they copy paste a lot as well.
Ladies get wise, because an army man has little time to be on dating sites searching for his soul mate because any time they have is spent with family !!!
4 out of 5 are scammers. sad but true to fact.
They need to pick a better profession & work for a living instead of scamming.

Such scams also happen in GAY community!!! I just banned someone pretending to be Sergeant Steve Peeples from my Yahoo chat. His Yahoo ID is whypeeples. Steve claims to be a special unit soldier in Afghanistan. In the name of national security, he says he can’t use webcam.

He says he wants to come to my country (in Asia) to be with me. Although he claims he loves sex, he NEVER once engages in sex talk (which makes me think he’s actually a straight scammer). Later, he asks me to write to his superior to get a permission for a leave. I need to pay “refundable” $450 fee. I copy-paste this article for him. And he falls silent. Then I erase him!

Peeples is not the first. Last week, I met another seargent on Skype. He kept boasting about his rank and kept telling me about his life in Africa. I knew whenever Africa popped up in conversation, it’s 99.99% scam! Honestly, it’s so hard NOT to be racist…

I really think US military MUST do something about this! This fraud is hurting US military’s name, not to mention many soldiers’ real identity/pix are stolen! No matter where the scammers live, they should be punished SEVERELY!

As a retired Senior Non-Commissioned Officer working to stop these scammers I can tell you a few things. They are playing by a script, if you can get them off of it they become confused. They have piss poor grammar. They claim to be widowed with a child, they have no family, or they lost everyone that meant anything. They will fall in love with you in about 3 conversations if not earlier and by the end of the 1st month they are grooming you for the money question.

Soldiers do not have 20+ hours to spend on the computer. They have a 12 hour job to do (when not on patrol) and then the most important things for the off time are showering, laundry, eating and being with your buddies. as a 3x OEF Vet I can tell you that a lot of the websites these guys are on are blacklisted and blacked out in Afghanistan and on the Army watch list.

Hi together

I like to post one of his mail – Lt.Gen. Steve Walter:

Good Evening Gabriela

You seem to be a very hardworking woman and i am proud of you , its good to know that you love kids , i love kids so much and i always care for them whether they are mine or not as i always want to see them happy and safe, sometimes i miss my daughter so much that i blame myself for their death because i feel i was not there to take care of them ..

After my service , i would want to build up a company with my earnings for all the life that i have served here in Iraq , i do not care if the woman that i fall in love with has to be working or not , all that is important to be is that we are happy and we can offer a family that would be there for each other through all good and bad times …. My life after the army , i think would be a wonderful life because i would not have to work so i would have much time for my family and also we can go on vacations and other staffs, i mean i want to enjoy the life outside the war zone so much …….

Part 2

A little more about me … I received my commission and completed the Signal Officer Basic Course after graduating from the University of Detroit with a bachelor’s of science in electrical engineering. I served my first assignment with the U.S. Army Night Vision Laboratory, Fort Beauvoir. After completing Signal Officer Advanced Course, I served as Communications-Electronics Officer and took my first command, a headquarters company in Fish-back, West Germany. I have also served as a battalion and brigade commander with the 80th Division (Institutional Training), and as deputy commander and acting commander of the 311th Signal Command (Theater).

I hold a master’s of science degree in research and development management from The George Washington University. I also attended the Industrial College of the Armed Forces and earned a master’s of science degrees at the Defense Intelligence College in strategic intelligence and National Defense University in national resource strategy.

I would describe myself as natural, warm, kind, Intelligent, straight and solicitous person, complete with spontaneous, creativity and reliability. Having a good sense of humor, I enjoy talking to people and finding out what make people do the things they do. I am a very compassionate person, I love animals and it breaks by heart to see any person or animal hurt. I’m looking for friendship, then hopefully something long term relationship which will end up to Marriage. I’m looking for someone I can support and someone who can support me.

(751) Gabriela says:

Part 3

I do what I say and don’t like empty words or wrong promises. I love to listen and also sharing what’s in my heart, open for change and new things. I have many interests like music, singing, playing guitar, love fellowship, good conversation, sightseeing and a lot more. For every relationship it needs openness, respect and mutual confidence.

What are some of the things you seek in the man that you want to be with ?

what are some of the things you love to do most on your free times ?

I hope that you are able to re-install Skype so that we can chat , i wish you a nice evening ..

Have you not read anything here ?
This is one of their plans & they get you to accept their money so they can launder it through channels.
Get wise for God sakes.
If you met this one on a dating site those sites are blocked by the military.
He is fishing you along & then if you accept this money no matter what it is in, you become an accessory to the fact for money laundering.

Listen UP !!!!

Soldiers in Afghanistan have NO TIME for dating sites and messages to strangers LIKE YOU.

NOT A SINGLE POST ABOVE is a real soldier.

Generals are NOT on the Internet hunting for women or a wife.

Anyone who suddenly sends a message claiming to be military, and gives an email address, is a scammer who wants you off the site safety..


June 18, 2013 at 6:55 pm
(759) Meridith says:

1. Soldiers and their loved ones are not charged money so that the Soldier can go on leave.

2. No one is required to request leave on behalf of a Soldier.

3. A General Officer will not correspond with you on behalf of a Soldier planning to take leave.

4. A General Officer will not be a member of an internet dating site.

5. Soldiers are not charged money for secure communications or leave.

6. Soldiers do not need permission to get married.

7. Soldiers do not have to pay for early retirement.

8. Soldiers have medical insurance, which pays for their medical costs when treated at civilian health care facilities worldwide – family and friends do not need to pay their medical expenses.

9. Military aircraft are not used to transport Privately Owned Vehicles.

10. Army financial offices are not used to help Soldiers buy or sell items of any kind.

11. Soldiers deployed to Combat Zones do not need to solicit money from the public to feed or house their troops.

12. Deployed Soldiers do not find large unclaimed sums of money and do not need your help to get that money out of the country.

Anyone who tells you one of the above-listed conditions/circumstances is likely posing as a Soldier and trying to steal money from you, or, get you to accept large sums of money as a gift so they can launder it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(762) Anonymous says:

I, too, was approached on an online chatting website by a Collins Smith, a sergeant stationed in Kabul, Afghanistan. Just like every post on here, I too was flooded with the I love you’s and marriage in a very short amount of time, and was asked for $3800 for a leave request, and that he’d return here to marry me. He claimed he was a widow, his son Paul, was turning 7, and the mom was killed in a car accident. Some of the other officers that were in on this scam was Joseph Dunford, Mike Williams. They initially asked me to send the money through western union, but the money was refunded to me because western union knew it was a scam; and then I was asked by these fake soldiers to pick up the money and send it to Nigeria. I was told that I could not see Collins Smith on cam, nor talk to him on the phone; and I was even asked to open a bank account in which funds would be deposited there for me to send. When I did that, the check that was deposited for 4700, the payment was stopped on it after I picked up the money and the transactions were done through Western Union. I was called by the bank and told initially that the check was altered, meaning that it was fraudulent, and that a stop payment had been made on the check. I then was told I needed to come back to the bank to put in the bank the money I took or criminal charges were going to be pressed against me.
I cannot believe how blindsided I was, and how I walked into this scam. The pictures of Collins Smith and his son Paul were so believable. When Western Union called me in the morning, and told me my money was going to be refunded I was so grateful, because the moment the bank called me and told me the 4700 check was a fraudulent check and stop payment was made on it, I wanted to die; I was so sick to my stomach that I had become such a victim of a crime. That stop payment occurred about 45 minutes after I made the last western union transaction.

Anonymous(753) so glad to hear things worked out for you. these guys are scamming women everyday and many not so lucky. i know women who were scammed out of 10,000 – 20,000 and merchandise (which they sell) before finally accepting it was all fake. we need to pass this on to any friends and family you think could fall for it and have them pass it on. let these scammers feed off others. i have also seen the replay video to make the female think they are real and finally seeing the guy. easy to see its replaying and not him. keep telling others and warning. plus its not the names to watch for they change them soon as they feel they are caught. watch for the stories posted over and over here and all sounds to good.

Sapper and myself and others are dealing with these scammers above. Thank you for all of you scam experts who are helping and bringing your big guns to warn women about these criminals. Ladies- never be afraid to ask before you send money, and if Western Union is mentioned IT IS A SCAM.

(766) Anbohn says:

I had received a friend request on Facebook from a person by name of Thompson Jacob claiming to be a Sergant in the Army and stationed in Kabul, Afghanistan, we were talking to each other for over a week until today after he kept on asking me about sending money by Western Union so that his mother back in Nigeria could buy his son a birthday present and also when i asked him for his AKO address to send him letters he never gave it to me and told me it was difficult for them to receive packages. Also he told me that he didn’t have access to his bank account until he got back in the states and was trying to safe up money while on his deployment to fly his family back home after his deployment is done.

After reading all the information out there about the scams that these people posing to be soliders and really not got me wondering and after i told him i wouldn’t send the money he said forget it and don’t worry about sending me letters or packages. So i knew something wasn’t right and just don’t how they can do this to single women who are trying to find someone out there. I feel these type of people shouldn’t be imposing on our services men and women who are actually serving out there for our country.

When we first started talking he introduced himself as being 45 years old and being in the Army for 15years now, also goes to tell me that he lost his wife 5 years ago to lung cancer and he has an 11 year old son who lives with his grandmother in Nigeria and that he was looking for someone serious and looking for marriage and he sounded very sincere to me but after talking with him and asking him different questions got the feeling he wasn’t who he said he was and now i have learned from reading all of the warnings and postings.

Thank you for having that kind of information available to us as woman who are trying to find love out there and now we have to be very skeptical about who we are talking too.

I was scammed by a man pretending to be an American solider we were chatting for nearly 3 months and he told me he was in afgan awaiting his deployment he was very good at what he did, I did have a feeling sometimes that things wasn’t right but I didn’t want to believe it.. he was using the name calvin witt and said he was a sgt and an engineer.. he told me everything a woman wants to hear and was very good at the compliments,, when I finally found him out as he asked for money for his leave to come to the uk I questioned him and told him I new this was not right.. he eventually owned up to what he had done and said he was very sorry he gave me a lot of information into why he had done it and couldn’t be more sorry.. he is 21 from Nigeria and told me that a lot of the young men do this to pay for there schooling.. and yes like a fool I sent this man a mobile phone and he told me he had to sell it to pay for his schooling.. he is on facebook and I have warned all his friends on there and yes you have guessed it nearly all are single women so watch out for the name calvin witt he also is going by the name has calvin wright too as wright he told me was his second name he sent me lots of photos and even spoke on the phone it was then I realised he was Nigerian and not American

This guy looks 100% full on American troop looks gorgeous…..i left him message just now and he is busy (of course) chatting to other poor defenceless woman no doubt….he has cammed me he could see me not the other way round……he might be genuine…but after reading all these i shouldnt think so…..you see none of our ‘troops’ befriending us woman……..or have they…from what i know of ‘military’ back grounds due to my family’s past history you are not aloud to contact outsiders if you are in war zones……he texts me when he wants to chat and the msg i get back it says its from the Pentagon!! It now amuses me and i feel i should play along for a little while…but i will send ‘no money’ happy to chat but thats all.:)

June 28, 2013 at 6:49 pm

Please folks give out the email addresses these scammers use. Just names is no good at all. Email addresses mark them for good and I can also track them and get pictures and more profiles. Please also links/URL to the profiles. Message texts also help me and everyone else and I get them posted to scamwarners or our own blogs. I can’t do anything with just the fake names and when the profile gets deleted it has all gone, and they emerge afresh.

(772) susie says:

Spoke to this guy again he was very apologetic towards me and asked me not to delete him, he was asking me if i had a bank account i said ‘no’ the only account i have is a savings account with only a pound it and it has no card with it he asked me if it was a Barclay account i said ‘yes’ it is he wants use it to transfer money into it even though he cant do anything with the account just put money in and transfer it else where ami still taking the risk of letting him use it i haven’t given him the green light! Can this land me in trouble!! Any answerers anyone!!

I have been chatting with a man claiming to be Randy J Barrett age 50, he says anyway, serving in Kabul, Afghanistan. Says he is a Sergeant in the U.S. Army and is there for another year and 6 months! Been reading all these posts cause I have been suspicious myself about this person. Hasn’t asked for money, however has asked for an iPhone. I told him if he sends me money we both could have a new phone and that shut him right up. Just wondering has anyone heard of this guy at all? He sent me a friends request off of Facebook outta no where. Also asked me to sign up for yahoo messenger, which I did, but have deleted the app on my phone cause I believe I’m getting scammed. He has two email addresses: first one is randybarret72@yahoo.com. The second is barrettr47@yahoo.com. Any info is great! Thanks Ladies

I am a Canadian. I met steve_moore@yahoo,com online. This guy was smooth. American solider serving in Afghanistan. Only son. Parents died in a car accident. Had never received a parcel in all his tours of duty. Wanted it sent to Ghana. That should have been my first red flag. But I wasn’t aware of military protocol and didn’t do online research. Ended up sending $11,000 more before I got the smarts. Basic same story as everyone else. The one thing I noticed about the online dating that was different than other online dating is the lack of sex/kissing type talk. Let’s face it. These are supposed to be soldiers away from home. This should have been another red flag. It took this guy over a week to talk about sex? Although no problem talking about money.

same here ladies….sorry for my bad english…. i met this man named Austin Prange on facebook and he was very authentic and on the photos of his uniforn the name Prange showed up on it as well….i believed him…..
we chattet…he had perfect english writing and grammar… was nice and after a while we fell for each other…
well….. not really obviosly…because now i know hes a fake…
he did ask me a few weeks ago to receive a packet, i refused him…he still wanted to be with me….but a few days ago he asked me about money. i should send him money so that he had not to go his next mission….how stupid sounds that?
so i did goolge it and then i found this site here among others
and thank you ladies for all your tips…
first, i used goodle images to search his profile photo and yep…he is a scam….he is already listet on a site named romance scam……
second, but to be absolutely sure i asked him about his ako-adress and he said, he dont know what that is….. suuuure…. i told him, as a soldier he would knew…. and after that he really deleted his whole facebook account…..
im so relieved that i found out all of that and im glad that i never sent him money…. and believe me….lesson learned over here…. .
and for woman here arent sure if the soldiers they are writing to is a fake…just ask for his ako-adress and recieve a email from there…than you know for sure….ako is free and means army knowledge online…its the email that the soldiers are using…. on the end there has to show up this: …@us.army,mil
i wish all the ladies luck here…

July 13, 2013 at 5:59 am

(793) jean. I am delighted that you acted with care and also posted your findings here. You are totally correct. All you ladies- please note. Don’t educate scammers of course and tell them nothing. We like our scammers to remain stupid and for YOU to be the educated ones. Of course once you discover your scammer, just vanish.

Hi..i think i was scammed…but can anyone tell me, where i can check where is the realy soldier.Of course he has a Facebook profile, but i don’t know who is behind. Where i can check this.

Because i didn’t know that this is happening in the world i believe to one soldier, who found me in Badoo. Of course i was so stupid, naive and full of feelings..and everything was happening so fast…that i paid for his leave from Kabul.
But now things get complicated and i am every day more confident, that he is a scamm.

(810) jean says:

i want to repeat… i will not accuse austin prange to be a scam.
because i can just go on his actions…and im not a victim direclty…. i did not send any money……
the picture of him on the internet via google images showed, that its something wrong. you can read it on romancescam that his pictures are using under different names.
this is not for me to tell you if he is a scam or not….
it just can be that someone is using his name and his fotos to scam the woman.
for me its just important to tell every woman out there to be carefull. ask for ako-adresses and have email contact over that….
be just always alert….

July 14, 2013 at 7:22 am
(811) unknown person says:

(799 ) Jean , right can’t accused as same thing with me but he had his ako email and his id too and I did send permit exit and transfer fund fee but one last is life insurance I haven’t send yet . because they need him important top secret as SF members as like CIA action . I am still confused myself . he told me that someone use cloned his military ID Picture and he not want me reading anything this here because can causing confused and damaged relationship . Even he said internet online is EVIL ..

July 14, 2013 at 8:59 am
(812) jean says:

(800) yout story is heartbreaking. its my opinion that a real soldier would never ask a woman for money. the army is taking good care of its soldiers.
did you tried goggle images out with his photo?
i can just tell you and every other woman to think twice before sending money.
They are good if they are using fake ako adresses and id’s now…what a sad world is that…
No one can tell you what to do…in the end we all decide that for ourselves….

6. Soldiers do not need permission to get married.

For God’s Sake do not hand your life insurance over to a man you met online. these scammers can be anywhere or anyone they want to be !!!

Soldiers and their loved ones are NOT charged money so that the Soldier can go on LEAVE.

and we been chat everyday online internet and phone text all the time for long time.

these military men work 12 hour shifts & an Officer will not be a member of an internet dating site or on chat for hours in a day.

when they finish their shift they do their own chores & do not have time to find their soul mate.

See 695 from Cassie. I’ve been chatting with Leonard Stuart James as well, who I met on Match. Same exact story about his family being killed in Hawaii and the ex- wife into cocaine who sold everything out from under him. Very put out that I wouldn’t send a birthday gift. Yesterday he said his computer was dying and asked me to send him a tablet so that we can keep talking. That was the last red flag I needed and brought me to this site. Whoever he stole the pictures from is really cute. I am mad at how time I’ve wasted talking to this scammer and embarrasses that I fell into it when there were so many red flag. Inconsistent grammar, often felt like there were a few different guys posting his messages. Some if the emails had different color fonts from one sentence to the next which was odd. Lesson learned. Now I just have to block him from my phone, my Yahoo, and hope he leaves me alone.

Look out for Richard Dougherty on facebook . From Ohio USA but in Afganistan for the US military.
His grammer and english was horrible thats a dead give away
My mum was talking to him for a week and was already saying he loved her . Didnt ask for money yet cause i put a stop to it.
He only had 2 friends on Facebook , He said he worked in a war zone and people had been killed.
What a Scammer! i confronted him and he denied it but ended up blocking me.
There also were other messages on her fb from people claiming they are from the US military

Hi! Ive been chatting with a sgt in kabul afghanistan for about 3 weeks now. He really took me at my lowest point cause my grandmother had past away 2 days before we started chatting and I was sad. He said all the right things to me and I thought this was something good.
He says he has a 2 year old son thats in foster care now when he´s deployed. He´s widoed for one year and we met through badoo.com. Im swedish and living in sweden so I was wondering how come he wanted to chat with me. He said that he always wanted to visit sweden. After about 2 weeks of everyday chatting he askes me if I want to marry him and I said yes cause I was so wrapped up by this loving sweet man. Today everything changed… He started to ask me if I could send him some money for food. I asked how much he needed and he wanted 100dollars.. I said I dont have that much to spare so I could send 50 dollars and he was thrilled… But when I saw how much the western union fee was I hesitated and my gutfeeling said that something was wrong. Theres no way a good decent man would ever ask a woman for money. And if he does he´s no gentleman. So I googled his email adress and it led me here. At first when I saw his picture and email adress here I got sad. But now Im relieved that i found out now before it waas too late.
What boughters me alot now is that Ive been sending him pictures of me so what can I expect of that? What if he takes my pictures and makes a scam to someone else?
Im 36 years old and I think Im good looking and I have no problem to meet men. My guard was off because of the death of my grandmother and thats why I was drawn into this so called soldiers lies.

This scammers name is Johnny Raphael. 39 years old living in texas city. His email is: platejohnny98@yahoo.com

I was recently friended on facebook by a guy saying he was a soldier and he was from Texas! His name he used is Bobby Kalin Roland but I do not believe it’s actually that guy because he did call me and he did not sound at all like he was from the United States and when he called the number said it was from Nigeria. I went along with him scam for about a week thinking maybe just maybe he was real. He sweet talked me and said he loved me and that he has a 5 year old boy his ex died he said and his son lived with a friend in Texas. He basically told me from the beginning that facebook recommended me as a person to get to know. The crazy thing was I was the only friend on facebook he had. I never sent money and he never asked for it but he told me to write to the United States Military so that he could get a leave to come see me!! Ha what a joke.

I would also like to know how to let the real soldier behind the scammers pictures know someone is using his pictures for scamming? I found the real soldier on facebook and he is happily married. Everytime I asked the scammer for pictures of him he probably has taken them from the real soldiers facebook. It was soo easy to find the real soldier cause the scammer used pics where u can see the soldiers real last name on his uniform. And on top of that he used the soldiers fist name but the scammer said his last name was another.

I met a guy on a dating site, Alex Allen775, he’s on skpe, facebook with the same name, uploaded pictures of someone and a girl whom he claimed to be his daughter, he claimed his wife died of cancer, his phone number 7138359017 (Texas) but he claim to be in NY and Canada. he also claim to buy and sell cars. He had travelled to Turkey to supply cars, he said the Turkish authorities needed more money to clear his goods, then he said “oh they don’t understand English”. he had no idea that I had suspected him from the very frits day, his words don’t add up. He did ask me money to help pay his hotel in Turkey. I told him to use his credit card.

I researched online, it seems he’s been doing this for a while, using different names , keep the same scenario for daughter and wife lies. check below and compare my story and another women experience on this site.

Beware of Richard Monsanto aka Richy – pretending to be a US solider in Afghanistan. He is sending photos of his daughter and himself saying his wife died of cancer. He claims the daughter to live with his parents. When I asked which parent the story changed. He is asking for money to help get gold back to the states that he found on a mission. He wants large amounts of money. I did not fall for his scam. He quickly said he loved me and would call me his wife within 3 weeks of knowing him. I did all types of searches and could not find this person anywhere. I meet him on an dating site. I told him several times I never give men money ever!!!! Once he got the hint I never heard from him. Ladies be aware he is good, very good at tapping into your heart.

Hi ladies,
Here is a new one for you. He is going by Lt. General Michael Oates. I meet him on Wayn. Com. He has pulled his profiled down. He was using an emailed address for get the satellite phone. Militarysaterlitephoneapply@usa.com
His email address is Oatesm4@gmail.com
I’m not a stupid girl, or lonely. Just naive and a nice girl and didn’t know anything about the military rule for the soldiers. I’m very patriotic. I was scammed. Once I found I was scammed he was confronted and he lied until he blue in the face. I told him I was filing a report on him with the FBI with detailed information. I kept all paperwork, names, addresses, his phone number 858-609-9037, email address and etc. Girls the other thing I can say keep all evidence and file the report. You may not get your money back, but you have yourself worth and dignity.

(850) Annette says:

Hi again ladies,
I know his name isn’t Lt. General Michael Oates. I do know he is a american and well educated.

I have some more information when mailing things.

He was using these names and addresses:

Abimbola Gbolahan
101 Sam Etham Military Base
Lkeja, Lagos 23401

Joel Moses or Abimbola Gbolahan
20 Navy School of Music
Ota, Ogun State 23403

Shame on these people. May they all rot. Every year I adopt a soldier at the holidays. Send care packages. This is a wonderful thing to do it makes them feel that they are remembered for what they are doing for us and our country and we appreciate them for it. And here we have scum that steal they identity for their own profit. And we are the ones being called names and pursecuted. I know it will be a long time before I’ll trust a person again.

After many messages backwards and forwards, he says he wants his diplomtic friend George to leave a briefcase at my address as it has valuable military documentation, when confronted about this his whole attitude changed as I was not for giving home address. Makes my blood curdle that there as such evil people in the world.

To whom it may concern, I only found out about this site after the fact. I had been on a dating line and found a man of the name of Martin Ross. He told me that he was a sergent first class in the US Army. He had sent me pics of himself and his kids and over the month was chatted on skype. He told me that he had gathered infomation that US soldiers were selling infomation and amunition to the Afgans. and that he had to get this info out of the countty..ANyway he was going to send this package to me which had this info in it along with his papers of retirement in them.. During our conversations on skype.. he told me that his room had been trashed and he couldn’t tell anyone of this infomation for he didn’t know how high it went up the ranks. So anyway i was waiting for this package that had money and papers of national surcurity in them. A UN diplomat was appently going to deliver this package to me..but got stuck in customs..I feel foolsh for i trusted this person so to get the package out i sent money.
I am away that this man in the photos was not Martin Ross.. All i want to know is that the man who actually is in the US Army in the photo does he know that his photo is up on the internet..and can i help him in anyway..I have lost money but most of all my bullshit radar was damaged in this affair…I would like to come face to face not with the man who lied to me but with the man that he used in the photo…Kind regards,Donna Hunter

Hi Ladies,
On the website Wayn.com. It’s not just the soliders anymore. I ran across three non Soldiers. When I explained that I wasn’t interested in chatting to be more than on line chat friends and explained my story, then took they profiles down immediately. One I contronted for he wouldn’t take no for an answer. He claimed to be a doctor working in Kubul and working with soldiers. He used a name of Frank Johnson.

They are every where. Please look for the buzz words. Especially My Love. I told Mr. Johnson I was not his love. I’m on Wayn to meet new people not to start a new relationship.

I have been through so much heartbreak in the past 2 months, didn’t need another one. I went on match.com, I was just looking for a friend, not a lover. I received a friend request from a leahy michael, he had a uniform on, said he was a sgt. in the army and was in Syria. As I love our troops and appreciate everything they do,I friended him.Within 24 hours, he loved me, I knew things just weren’t right, but I have to admit, I was kinda hoping, dummy. Within 28 hrs. he was begging me to request a leave for him as I was his future wife.This request should go to inforarmyatwar@usa.com. This would cost 948.00 but would be refunded. This was a constant topic for a few hours, until I told him I had to go. Ya go check online for scams. Match.com dating scams using military as a profession! LOSERS!!!!!!!!!!

LADIES !!!!!

PLEASE be aware…ALL of the ABOVE

These scammers are everywhere online, they occupy every single dating site available. Tagged is over run with the animals and also Match.com, Badoo, Keek, the list goes on.

They are all wanna be marines with no heart and will stop at nothing to convince you in their own sick way.

They are clever cons & get better with every single word you type.
They change their name like they change their underwear.

Please do not fall into the trap of giving to these people because in the end it will only be your heart that’s broken & your wallet empty.

I feel so sorry for all the Soldiers, Marines who have been striped of their own dignity, but keep in mind.

A Soldier in fact a General has NO time for online dating sited. Their shifts are 12 hour shifts so do the math & report anyone posing as a Soldier who behind the photo is a scammer.

(867) sherri moyer says:

I was scammed just recently while on Match. Com. Leonard Stuart James is the name he used. He sent me his picture of him with his mother. a picture in uniform and one other. I assumed he had stolen someones picture.
When I knew what was happening, I started to demand proof of who he was. Ultimately, I didn’t receive any of it. I was really angry when i discovered that none of the info was true. Not his name, tel number, email.
I played along with him for a few days before I demanded this info.
I told him off in really explicit words. He even sent a message saying it was the IT guy from his unit. The guy was telling me to back off of Leonard. At that point, I had known the truth for days. He said i will send you my photo . I will have the IT guy take it right now. I told him that was no proof.
The next morning, he sent me a picture of him in uniform. He was standin in his camis laughing whole heartedly with his laptop on the table next to him. My Match.com picture was on the computer. He was the man in the other photos and on Match.com. But, I have no idea who he is or what he is capable of.

August 14, 2013 at 8:49 pm

(855) sherri moyer you need not worry. That photo is another fake one too, a Photoshop job or similar. Extortion my be the next move from that Subhuman Delta Rat. Don’t respond to any of it. For the rest of you here too. Not a single person posted about above is a soldier or anything to do with the military. A MENTION OF MONEY, ASKING FOR LEAVE, HIS WORK IS SECRET, HE IS A GENERAL or A GENERAL WRITES TO YOU = A SCAM. Don’t ask the question to find out, since you came here you already knew they were a fake. Publish the data here and I can use it to warn others.

He would not or did not shoot himself, once again these are the ways they try to control you.
one I met had a so called friend…lead scammer, say this guy I knew ( which I would NEVER would say MY GUY ) shot off an aka and tried to kill himself.
They have so many schemes and stories it would make your head spin !!!
They are all liars & they will go to any extreme because they always have plans for their victims to keep the victim hooked !!!!!
I have military family and know much and I am saying run and never look back !!!!!!!!

Ha Ha! Your scammer is pretending to be the next soldier. He knows you have figured out the scam so he reappears hoping you will swallow the lies all over again.
You ladies will NEVER find a real soldier on line, not one that you would want.The good ones are all married or have real girlfriends. The ones that aren’t are piss heads or foul mouthed abusers and the last ones to get involved with. You are all asking for trouble if you think differently. Please be realistic and have common sense, and read what is posted about scams, over and over again.

broken hearted you need to change your privacy setting so your friends list is off to others. make it only mutual friends can see each other or totally off to everyone. that will keep him from getting your friends names and harassing them. also just ignore him he will get bored and move on to the next victim. lingo is a well known name for the romance scammers with many pictures to go along with the name. you can reverse search a picture and see all the fakes.

Thank you very much for sharing this info. I am also thankful for all those ladies – endless list indeed – to share their experiences and all this made me alert. Even I have just started chatting with someone who is proceeding exactly on the same lines. The whole affair is gripping the single ladies of entire globe. It is a serious matter. We women have to be really strong, treat our loneliness and find a solution towards happiness. So what if we are alone; we have our own reasons to be alone and we can still have a better future ahead. I shall remain in touch with you all here. Share my experiences. Thankfully as yet there is no demand of money from the gentleman. Thank you once again. Remember Girls, you are not alone. Much Love.

(881) Jill says:

I have a new name to add to the list. We started talking on facebook months ago, Jack Reed. He lived near me. He stated he was a widow with one daughter that is 17 and lives with her aunt in Texas when he is deployed. Says his wife and child died in child birth 5 years ago. Very articulate and said he has been in the military since he was 18, now 46. Very romantic and got me to tell him way too much about my past. I got suspicious when I asked for an FOB address to send him a package and he wouldn’t give me one, said he was well taken care of and needed nothing from me. He only speaks to me via yahoo messenger and email, so I ran his IP and it came back as a proxy server running through yahoo running out of Sunnyvale. I called him out! Got the story that the government doesn’t want their location pinpointed. Then asked me to open a USAA account and he would put $500 a week in it to help me out. Told him no, of course! But, he says his mission is short and he is going to prove to me he is real. Google imaged his photos and nothing comes back. I asked for more and he is sending them today because messenger wouldn’t download them. But, one said Larry4.jpeg and when I asked why it says larry he said it was his nickname. I am not invested, I even sent him this link…..lol! He said, “I don’t want your money!” His email address is Jack_reed15@yahoo.com if anyone is familiar with him, please let me know…..

jill i put in the yahoo addy you posted and came up with a jack reed. the soldier pic he uses is fake for him. it is a 2001 training pic . not sure its the same guy you were talking to but sounds like the jack/larry you commented on his fake like you think. be careful and thanks for the info- here is the jack reed i found- https://www.facebook.com/jack.reed.581

I have been dating this US soldier for about almost 2 yrs now and yes he has asked me for money and told me sad stories and I felt for them, yes I did send him money I felt sorry and to make it worse I was in love with him.. He’s always promising things to me and I believed him … Anyways I met him through Badoo.com . He goes by the name of Richard Christopher Graham , he’s email address is grahamrichard70@yahoo.com.. I found pictures of him in a site for Nigerian scammers and I confronted him about it and he said that someone must have stolen his pictures and are using him .. I don’t know what to think anymore … He still keeps contact with me , I have Troyes to ended but he says he will kill himself if I do . This is for guess (66) I think it might be the same guy …. If you have the same email or pics of him please email @ karlahuezo@yahoo.com

(886) Marion says:

he is a known scammer and they all say they will kill themselves.
He doesn’t love you he loves your money and talk .
Do you not read anything here. This is no joke because these guys are clever & will lead you right down the garden path with all kinds of cry baby stories.
I have army family & these guys are not even allowed to be on dating sites like Badoo, Tagged, looking for a soulmate because they work long days & have their own duties to do & it sure isn’t to pick up a wife !!!

Get your head on right !!!!!!!

(891) donna says:

ramos is a scammer name so run fast. ladies they are not soldiers don’t fall for it. most of them are nigerian and all sit around seeing who can get money from women mostly in usa. if you think your guy is a real soldier why and when would he be on a dating site ? rel soldiers don’t need to ask for money for any reason. accounts are not locked for them. there is no reason they can’t talk on a phone unless he isn’t who he says he is. DON’T FALL FOR THESE FAKE GUYS/SOLDIERS !!!!!!!!!!!!!! watch for the warning signs, inlove fast, want money from you( or items sent which will be sold for money), sad story of the family with death or divorce, family raising the kid for him, few pictures on the place you met, few friends and usually women not family, and the list goes on.

US Military takes care of its own
Leave,Retirement Flights home or Telephone Calls do NOT have to be paid for there is NO TS2 or any other Company ONLY SCAMMERS REAL Military members use calling cards

They can get on webcam
They CAN give you their AKO and APO
They Can call you if they like
They DO have access to their Bank Accounts at ALL TIMES
ALWAYS do an IP check at Whatismyip.com
NEVER send money or anything of Value to anyone you do NOT know
NEVER give out personal information

(893) Anonn says:

There IS NOT One US Military Base in Ghana NOR Nigeria so those are flat out lies

They tend to type the way they speak so any unintelligent clown that cannot spell his OWN Name is definitly as FRAUD

Do NOT let them know you know they are scammers go to Romancescam and Scamwarners and A Soldiers Perspective A Military Blog
Educate yourself is the key leave the scammer with NOTHING

Keep your FB Page Private and Friends private also and turn off followers be sure to Google Military Romance Scams

NEVER get on cam nor send pics to scammers or you may find yourself Blackmailed or they will use your Name and pics and your Address to scam others trust me the Men Pose as Women and so do the Women

Real Military Members cannot sit and chat with you for hours at a time they have rEAL JOBS to do only a Scammer has all the time in the world to chat with you they are lazy lying bums and thieves it is what they do to them it is a JOB
They lack knowledge of the US Military so they make up far fetched lies

The most common is the phone so they can talk when really they just take the money and buy a cellphone and credits like a prepaid phone

The second is they ALWAYS have at least one child and a sob story wife died of cancer or car crash or in childbirth
Or Wife left them and took everything and left them with a Child or Children that are with some caretaker and they invent reasons why they cannot send money or why they cannot access their Accounts which are all LIES

Any Military Member with dependents under 18 ALWAYS have to have a plan BEFORE they deploy if it is a US military Member think about it why would they have a White Man/Woman’s Pictures up claiming it is them yet their Child is with some caretaker out of the US

Follow your gut instinct ALWAYS

Larry Jordan Valez, we’ve been chatting on yahoo for 3 months, 3 weeks ago his daughter was supposedly bitten by a brown recluse spider(poisons) his grandmother is caring for them while he is deployed in Kabul, he claims the doc emailed him that his daughter is seriously ill & requires a kidney operation, he must have 600.00 before she can be admitted to the hospital, meanwhile he’s coming to the house everyday giving her antibiotics, I told him I didn’t have money to send him, borrow from friends , family & my boss he says, I said no. he said when I got paid I could send him 325 and the doctor would keep it until he had it all, if she’s that ill surgery wont wait, and hospitals have special programs, he’s not eligible because of miss filled paperwork. he wouldn’t give me a address or phone so I could send a card or call to check on her, im not stupid my husband had a kidney transplant, and several operations, you cant put that off. I’ve stopped answering his texts, he continues to text, email etc.. These men are smooth talkers, they know exactly what to say to suck you in, and after 3 MThs. I have feelings for this man & his family. I don’t believe him, I sincerely hope that there’s not a seriously ill 8 year old child in Florida

Dont think about the child because these guys/gals will stop at nothing to rope you in !!! so please dont feel guilt.
These scammers are all really sick !!!

Anon thank you for what you wrote because you answered some questions I was wondering about.
The part about : They DO have access to their Bank Accounts at ALL TIMES.
I was close to being scammed a number of times, but I am not one to look for love online, because a person cannot trust anyone. I only ever seek friendship.

People need to really wise up because these sick bastards will stop at nothing to convince you they are a Soldier. Their lies are cleverly said.
I hope they all rot in hell !!!!

884 Judy YES he is absolutely a SCAMMER IF he were REAL Military he would NEVER need a dime of your money to get medical care for his Dependent Child the Child would be covered by the US Military don’t wanna give out to much information BUT this Scammer is in West Africa and EVERYTHING there is about money so he’s NOT lying about needing Money BUT he is a FRAUD and NOT a US Military member IF he were he would NEVER beg you nor any other Stranger for money BLOCK and DELETE him ASAP Anonn

August 22, 2013 at 7:56 pm
(899) Anonn says:

884 Judy FOLLOW your gut instinct NOT one Doctor in Florida would go to any home and US military takes care of it’s own ALWAYS if the Child existed and were really Ill she would already be in a Military Hospital and even if it were NOT a Military Hospital the Child would STILL be covered by his Insurance this guy is a FRAUD.

Ask him for his AKO and APO
You don’t have to because he does not have one learn how to check Ip addresses.

THE MIGHTY SPELL CASTER THAT HELPED ME SOLVED MY CRITICAL PROBLEM. I dont know how to really thank Dr IGE for what he did for me. My Name is Precious from USA, i was dating this man who i loved very much for over six years now without any problem in our relationship. so at a point he changed so suddenly after returning from the office and started behaving so strangely. it even got to the extent that he told me it was over and i should never call him again. This was a person that loved me with everything that he had. When i told my friend jenny what happened, she introduced me to a great spell caster called DR IGE . At first sight this man told me all my problems that it was his secretary that used a charm on him. Dr IGE told me not to worry that he will help me solve the problem. The following day, i was in the house in a sober mood when i first received a message from my boyfriend that he was very sorry and before i dropped the phone, he called me again to say he is on his way home and that he was truly sorry for everything. To my greatest surprise, one week later he engaged me and we got married. All Thanks to Dr IGE . You can email him at igespiritual.worldhome@yahoo.co.uk for any problem that you have. once again his email address is igespiritual.worldhome@yahoo.co.uk

He has been seeing another girl for about four months now. I told him that he needs to stop, but he says he is in love with her. They’ve talked about being together “forever” and eventually her moving in with us. My husband still loves me. He regrets getting into this in the first place, but is not willing to just break up with her. He says if they so break up then thy will be it and he will not pursue another relationship. I contacted him on his email: igespiritual.worldhome@yahoo.co.uk who cast a 48 hour spell for me surprisingly my husband came home on his knees begging me to forgive him that he has broke up with his mistress all thanks to DR IGE I pray that God will continue to use you to help people.

I think I may be getting scammed now. I haven’t sent any money, but I have been talking to a master sgt in Afghanistan named Randy Brooks. He’s been very sweet and all and says he’s widowed with 2 adult kids living in Il where he’s originally from. Unlike most of these other women,he’s only mentioned he’s getting ready to go on a mission and wants me to subscribe to some pager system that they use so we can keep in touch and that it cost$180 to get it set up. I’ve told him I don’t have the money because I’m also a widow and struggling to make ends meet. He’s not pushing me to get it but says if I don’t he doesn’t know how long the mission will last and when we’d get to talk again. Any suggestions ladies?

zAhoj ženy,musím se taky podělit o svoji zkušenost. Jsem z České republiky a měla jsem jeden večer inzerát na seznamce.Hned ráno jsem měla ve vzkazech odpověď s mailadresou.Odpovídal mi jistý “col. Douglas Williams” údajný důstojník US Army,který byl po nasazení v Afghanistánu převelen do Libye. Bratr mu údajně zemřel na rakovinu,rodiče zemřeli krátce potom a o manželku přišel 11.9.při teroristickém útoku.Je prý z Atlanty.Hned vdruhém mailu mi poslal fotky opravdu nádherného muže,jednu v uniformě,druhou v civilu z výletu na Mount Rushmore. Tak jako všichni psal samé sladké zprávy,plné citů.Poznala jsem rychle,že je to podvod,ale bavilo mne hrát jeho hru,tak jsem stále odepisovala.Asi po týdnu mi popsal historku o tom,že zajali s dvěma kolegy nějaké povstalce,kterým abavily kufr s penězi,že nevěří úředníkům,a místo,aby peníze odevzdali,že si je schovali. Nyní že je potřebuje dostat z Libye pryč,tak že je pošle na mne ,jako že budu manželka. Dovézt je měl jako box nějaký diplomat UN,který mi box předá až tady doma. Další den mne ten diplomat-kurýr kontaktoval,že vyráží na cestu. Za dtři hodiny mi psal,že jeho let byl přesměrován z Libye přes Dubaj a London. Protože jsem několik let na letišti pracovala,vím,že takhle se lety nesměrují. Další den ale začal kolotoč zpráv.

Army, which was deployed in Afghanistan transferred to Libya. His brother allegedly died of cancer, parents died shortly thereafter and his wife came to 7.4. when the terrorist attack.Is said to be from Atlanta right vdruhém mail sent me pictures of a really wonderful man, one in uniform, the other in street clothes from a trip to Mount Rushmore. So as all the same sweet messages wrote, full of emotion.I knew quickly that it’s a scam, but it was fun for me to play his game, so I’m still odepisovala.After about a week I described a story about that with two colleagues captured some insurgents, which abavily the suitcase with the money that he does not believe the officials, and instead handed over the money to the stash. Now that is needs to get away from Libya, so that it sends to me, as I’m a wife. Import is like the box had some UN diplomat, who passes to box here at home. The next day, I contacted the diplomatic courier, that goes out on the road. For dtři hours wrote to me that his flight was redirected from Libya via Dubai and London. Because I worked at the airport for several years, I know that years ago they do not route. The next day, but began to carousel.———- RUN fast yet another scammer

Samozřejmě,že jsem odmítla. “Diplomat” začal vyhrožovat,že to nahlásí na Interpol a později i na FBI.

Dejte si na ty zmetky pozor,hlavně jim neposílejte peníze,hrajte si…Jenom je mi upřímně líto těch vojáků,kterým ukradli identitu,a kteří o tom ani neví.Dělají tak z hrdinů bezcitná monstra,a to si vojáci nezaslouží.Měl by se tím někdo zabývat a najít způsob ochrany identity…..

Just want to warn… My mother got a message on Facebook from a soldier named Morgan Perkins.. He said he is in Libya on a mission,… Military doctor, said no phone calls, no pictures, no pay until mission is over…. I saw the messages, and knew right away was a scam… I am married to retired marine and I know how military works,… And I wrote back… No money? In the military? Didn’t answer back… Until my mom wrote.. Secret mission? He said yes… He is using LtG. David Perkins picture… Only 2 friends on Facebook… It is very sad that people like him makes living using military info and trying to get money from innocent women looking for love or friendship. Being married into the military and my husband being in the war zone for many times… Makes me angry!!!!

Hi Julie,
just read your post. I was just contacted on fb from a us army guy by the name of Patrick Michael stationed in kabul, Afganistan. His profile pic is very handsome. this is so sad that these scammers are using pics and names of us army men.

Be wise & report him because Soldiers do NOT have time for chat and meeting a soul mate on FB or any dating sites !!!!

Check his pic in google search & you will find he is a scammer.

Hi, just a recommendation if you have doubts about someone that is writing you: go to any internet engine (as google, yahoo or any other) and search for the e-mail address. You can also copy some of the sentences that he/she has written you. They usually use the same sentences with everyone. It worked for me and I found out about 2 scammers that were targeting me, one of the said he was a soldier deployed in Afghanistan. Good luck!!

You can google any picture you have been sent in your google browser, just click on image, follow directions, and see if that picture has been posted before. Many are reported to Romancescam.com and Scamwarners.com. I found my original scammer’s picture posted so many times using a different email ID with each picture I lost count. Any one contacting you using the name Mateo is a scammer. Never believe someone who says they love you when they have never met you. Your in a fantasy world if you do and never never send anyone money you only know online. Many of these scammers are from a world organized crime syndicate and prey on women who are lonely. Very sad but be smart people.Also protect your Facebook page and do not accept friends with someone you do not know. They go there looking for new victims and pick from your friend list. I was unfortunately a victim myself but learned the truth and woke up real fast.

I almost got scammed myself ,luckily im a little older and wiser than i used to be.There is a comment i noticed regarding a Edward Perez.He claimed to be a sgt.in the u.s.Army.He seemed to be very nice at first,he answered alot of questions i asked.after talking on facebook.com for a short time, we started texting eachother .i noticed a few inacccurate answers from his facebook profile.after 3 weeks he finally called me on the phone,that was a dead giveaway .He was suppose to be hispanic ,however he sounded like he was jamaican.i even mentioned that to him but he had an answer to everything.i forgot to mention he had also lost his wife and only daughter in a car accident a year ago. i was just waiting for him to ask for money,then finally after 4 weeks he wanted to take leave and come see me and asked if i could make airline and hotel reservations for him.i asked him for a credit or debit number,by this point i already knew he was a fake,so i played along just to entertain myself.lol.then it came ,he told me that i had to go and pick up a check from the miilitary but i had to pay a shipping fee…..there it was!!! after that i decided to end this so i asked him if he thought i was stupid enough to believe all of his crap.the next day his facebook page was completely deleted.in the meantime i was able to contact the real Edward Perez through one of his facebook friends.he seemed to know about this.just remember ladies if it sounds to good to be true ,it usually is!!!.and do some investigating before sending anyone any money

(938) Hannah says:

I was recently contacted by a US soldier, Ty Michael Carter. Ty Carter is the most recent recipient of the Medal of Honour… He started talking to me out of no where, so I Googled him– and was amazed at all of the information that came up surrounding who he was! After chatting with me about some random stuff and providing details that were inconsistent with the details I could find online, I started to do some digging around. He said he was deployed in Afghanistan, only has one child and a wife who died of cancer (he’s married and has three children, according to details online!). He told me about his dog, his only pet, although the real Ty Carter mentioned in an interview with David Letterman that he has three dogs. I asked about some of the inconsistencies and he just said that the army had created a fake persona for him and that those details weren’t true. BUT as soon as he realized how easily Google-able he was, his Facebook name changed to just “Michael Carter” and he told me he did that because he had so many fans adding him. He told me his son is in an orphanage while he’s away. I did an IP search and found that he/she/whomever I was talking to is located in Ireland. I knew things weren’t adding up and it was getting boosted up to be a big sob story before he asked me for money, so I just blocked him.
How stupid are these people?! Do your research, be smart, and don’t send soldiers anything. And to the scammers… If you’re going to impersonate someone, spend five minutes and get the facts straight first!

Another one through plentymoresilverfish dating website. Claims to be Daniel Rodriguez SFC stationed in Camp Phoenix in kabul, Afghanistan.
Widowed, 4 year old son, lives in Burley, Leeds when at home. daniel.rodri45@gmail.com.Very convincing by text, not bad English grammar,, even phones but it came up as a private number, line not clear but had an american accent. Requested t-mobile top up vouchers. Has recently requested a write for leave on his behalf to usarmy_transitleavedepartment@mail.com. I got a reply from a Lt Col Tom Joey saying it was being forwared to the relevant parties. Just wiating for the sting now in asking for money. I’ve reported this to the internet crime compliant center using on IC3 form. What a shame, the pictures of the soldier I received were gorgeous and even had the name Rodriguez on the uniform. Be careful out there, they’re getting smarter at this.

He’s a scammer & is using the photos of this Soldier thats why the name is the same as the name he is using.
sick bastards.

They think they are clever but actually they are very stupid & he has asked for top up vouchers which is a dead giveaway right there. Soldiers can call their loved ones & do not need top up vouchers & the reply you got was another scammer working along side of this one.

BEWARE LADIES because they are learning better english with every word you whisper to them.
DONT become a VICTIM !!!!!!

For the love of all that is good and holy…. Military men/women do not have to pay for their leave. Second of all, they do not have to pay the military to get married.
In Afghanistan, especially on base, there are phonelines, there is internet available. You do not need a phone number to make a call. There is Skype as well.
Try to use this rule: unless you voice and video verify through programs such as Skype you are not real.

It’ll save you a lot of headaches and heartache.

I was recently contacted by an Army Sergeant “Nelson Evans” who claimed my FB profile photos “just melted his heart”. Well, I’m a suspicious person right from the get go about things like this and knew it was a scammer. Then a week or so later, my niece was contacted by another Army Sergeant, again very odd. A couple days ago my own stepmother then was contacted also by an “Army soldier”. I actually have never heard of this sort of scam and how they use the ruse of being military soldiers to gain attention and then money out of victims. My suspicions led me to this site so now I know what’s up and I’m spreading the word to all my Facebook friends about on-line scammers posing as military members. Ladies, please don’t be so gullible. If you are really that hard up for a relationship with a man, go to church or volunteer in your own communities. There’s still plenty of nice, single, REAL men out there. You’ll at least know what he really looks like and then you can decide for yourself if what comes out of his moving lips is real or not.

I found out today that I thought I had been in touch with a Army Staff Sargent, named John Woode. I have 6 pictures of him in uniform, and different posses with other Army staff. Was said he was in Afganistan. He also had one child he was ” raising” by himself. With the help of a friend called Nicholas Offi, he said was a diplomat. So today I did some searching and found out that Mr Woode, is Stephen Woode a young man from United Kingdom.
I am very military proud, with 5 marines in the family. So some of the things he was telling me didn’t make sense. I checked with family and they wanted to visit to introduce themselves. I don’t think so. I am hoping that this information gives people a heads up. However, I am sure my family will help me with further contact, hahaha.

Hi, Im from Australia, I have just read all the comments, until now I had no idea about these scammers.

He sounds real but Im still worried, he has a facebook page with photos but not much info on it. I have enjoyed talking to him, but not if he is a scammer.
He has said his wife died of ovarian cancer and has a 8 yr old daughter.
He also said he is resigning from the army to spend time with his daughter and may visit me when he does..
Has anyone else heard or spoken to him.

The photos that he use has the actual name Scott written on the hat of the soldier in the photos. Please be cautious.

Yesterday a man contacted me on skype, he said to me that he is an american soldier who is in Libya. After 30 minutes he loved me and he wants to come to me in Belgium but he first wants to put all his money on my bank account. After 5 minutes he told me that he called his bank to put his money on my account. i received mail of his bank account but the joke is that I must pay first 750 € on the bankaccount because the person his account is dormant. Don’t make me laugh. If he thinks that I’m stupid. I told him that I don’t have 750€ and still if i have it i will not pay it. Today he spoke again to me, he had been spoken to his friend in America and he wants to pay 500 euro so that i only must pay 250 euro and then I will have his money on my account next week. Total amount that he wants to put on my account is 580.000 United States dollar. The fact is that he did send me a document and the bank also send me a documents and 3 mails. But i am not allowed to keep it on my computer. I must promise him that I delete the documents. but I have not deleted them. and I will not pay the fee.

Hello my name is Tanita, I´m german and: yes I am also a victim of scammers. He found me on Badoo, we chat on Facebook, he said he`s 48 years old, his wife died 4 years ago by car accident and he is Captain statined in Sudan.
I’ve never heard here in Germany of this kind of criminal energy and so had no idea of the soldiers everyday, especially of U.S. Army members have . I became suspicious when I should apply for retirement and interpret all fees ($ 1350), I get the course again when the „Captain Cabell“ has landed in Germany. A friend from him also stationed in Sudan, confirm me, that this is Okay and the normal policy of the us army:
Another friend from the „Captain“ is this man here, I know now: he is well known as Scammer:
I have not been paid. I receive help from the soldiers against scammers on Facebook. Personally, I see the whole thing not only negative, I learned a lot about the lives of soldiers in war zones, write my English improved and I now know that living in peace should never be taken for granted. So I must be something almost grateful to the people already criminal. Oh yes, and I think no one should be ashamed to have fallen for a scammer, I am a very suspicious person but they did such a good job and I was very touched emotionally. I see now, two days after it went bad me forward, I live in peace, have my family, friends and colleagues. While I would like to know if it the soldiers, they have introduced to me as Cabell goes well. But I think I have no way to get information. I wish all those who fall for scammers lot of power and the right soldiers, their family and friends all love, return healthy back home and may God protect you all in use worldwide….
With love, Tanita

When I said that I did not have that kind of money he said he would send a signal message to the general asking for a way to send less money for this…. Within minutes he said he had received a msg back stating this was ok but when I said I wasn’t sending money and states that I do not love him.. I also told him that my friend who is US Army says this is not how it works, he got all angry and then said I guess u don’t trust me or love me then deleted me!!
He had told me he was a widow and had 2 children…

J(986): He is definitely a scammer

Only the soldier himself can request his leave, nobody else.
A leave is earned, not purchased.
A leave does not cost any money.
You do not have to pay for airplane ticket either.
At last, soldiers do have access to their pay.
If he loves you, he will not ask you to pay it.

I got a reply the next day from a seemingly legit usaf personell saying i wa approved but had to send $365 us funds money within two days for security reasons and would be refunded with in a week.I email my kelly saying i was approved and he told me to make sure i sent the money right away or he would no longer get accepted for phone calls and wouldnt get his requeted vacation time to visit me….I think this is surely a scam

I am suspicious, he is supposed to be based in Kabul.


Has anyone else come across the above I do not think it is genuine?


November 5, 2013 at 10:17 pm
(993) victim says:

(992) Kathy:

Is he a US Army soldier? His email is NOT an official military email.
If he asks you to pay for his leave, then it is definitely a scam. If you
have not talked or seen him, very likely he is fake. Ask to talk with
him on the phone, and to webcam, also ask him for his military email.
If he makes excuses, then he is fake.

Remember: If he asks you to pay money, he is a scammer!

November 5, 2013 at 11:01 pm
(994) victim says:

This list was copied from an official letter by US Army.

1. Soldiers and their loved ones are not charged money so that the Soldier can go on leave.

2. No one is required to request leave on behalf of a Soldier.

3. A General Officer will not correspond with you on behalf of a Soldier planning to take leave.

4. A General Officer will not be a member of an internet dating site.

5. Soldiers are not charged money for secure communications or leave.

6. Soldiers do not need permission to get married.

7. Soldiers do not have to pay for early retirement.

8. Soldiers have medical insurance, which pays for their medical costs when treated at civilian health care facilities worldwide – family and friends do not need to pay their medical expenses.

9. Military aircraft are not used to transport Privately Owned Vehicles.

10. Army financial offices are not used to help Soldiers buy or sell items of any kind.

11. Soldiers deployed to Combat Zones do not need to solicit money from the public to feed or house their troops.

12. Deployed Soldiers do not find large unclaimed sums of money and do not need your help to get that money out of the country.

Anyone who tells you one of the above-listed conditions/circumstances is likely posing as a Soldier and trying to steal money from you, or, get you to accept large sums of money as a gift so they can launder it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(995) victim says:

Important note from our military consultant Major Gordon Hannett:

I see posts where women mention that their “soldiers” have said
they’re deployed to Iraq, Libya, Syria, Egypt, Nigeria, or Ghana.

One more thing to add:

Every US Army soldier should have an official e-mail address.

The email should end with us.army.mil or mail.mil. If he can not
provide you with his military email address. Do not believe him.

I was curious what that was so I googled transfer leave and found this site, read was what going on and went back to him and said yes see if you can do that.

He’s coming home to get married. He is a widow with two children in England. He is b eing transferred to Syria for a peace keeping mission and will come home in 3 weeks. Before leaving he sent a package to England full of found US money and I was to pay to get it shipped to United States for about$2000. I almost fell for it until I looked up the transportation company and this site popped up. I emailed him and shared the info I found on here. I have not heard back yet and probably won’t.

Hi ladies,

I have also been a victim of a scam. One month ago I knew a man in facebook. He was always very polite. He told me he love me. At the beginning I only wanted to be his friend and it was nice. Little by little, the so nice things he tells me, go into my heart. I fell in love with him. One day, looking in facebook I saw the same photo and last name first and then the name. I explain: He calls Henry Adams and the other man was Adams Henry. I tried to make me friend of the other man and tell him what was happening. Awful. I do not know if the two of them were the same man of if they work in the same activity. You can not imagine all the things that he told me. It is best to forget. I told Henry what had happened and I wanted to have an explanation and he told me that the other man was a and he tried to convince me that the other was a imposter and he had informed facebook and the account of that man had been disabled. Well, I want it can help you. I have never sent him money but the money is not the most important for me. He mad fun of me and I felt very bad for two days. I am a strong woman and I have friends so I feel very happy for me. Sorry for them. I think they are people with a very poor consciousness. All the best for yours.
I beg your pardon if I do not write very well, I am a spanish woman but I wanted to tell you my story.

I was chatting with a man claiming to be in Syria serving the British Army. I was told we couldn’t talk on the phone for security reasons, yet they can text and IM on Yahoo! Messenger?? The story goes: Age 56, about to retire in a few weeks. Asked me to send a care pkg to UK so a courier could travel to his base, give MY pkg to him then he would give courier a pkg to send to me. (The pkg I sent to UK, that nobody will ever open, cost me $115.00 just to send; Not to mention the clothes and other stuff I bought to put in it)! This pkg I was to receive would contain one of his uniforms, a gold medal he had earned in the service, more gold, and over $3 million!! So…the pkg is on it’s way with the courier, then the next day I get an URGENT msg from said courier that it was held up in Customs due to expired stamps and could I please send $3500.00 to get it back?? I told him I contacted law enforcement and threatened to hunt him down so he would do hard time. I got a “confession” from a 17 year old male from Ghana Africa (#1 internet scam location in the World!) He claimed it was his first time and gave me all his personal info and even got on cam for me. He is trying to finish high school and he can’t afford books to finish. I ACTUALLY FELT SORRY FOR THIS 17 YEAR OLD and was going to wire him money thru Western Union, but when I filled out the paper work, the lady helping me said “NO WAY can I let you wire him money.” Apparently they red flag any money transfers going to Ghana!! (Good to know!) I had decided I didn’t want to help out a scammer anyway, so I am glad she intervened. I was truly falling for Sir Frank Wilson (aka Felix Acheampong) and now I have these lovely pictures of a gorgeous British soldier I just can’t delete. This 17 year old male from Ghana was so good I could find very few holes in his story!! I want to meet the real soldier and hope he is not married!!! ( Just a little humor for my sake.) BE WARY. BE WISE!!

I wanted say something to the Army E-Mail-Addresses, because I asked with the Army:
People cannot typically send mail from a @mail.mil account without being the owner, unless the computer account was hacked. It is also possible to make the “from” address appear to be from one address when it’s really from another.
People’s email addresses with the @mail.mil domain have some sort of indicator in the address that says if they’re a civilian (first.last.civ@mail.mil), local national employee (first.last.ln@mail.mil), contractor (first.last.ctr@mail.mil), or military service member (first.last.mil@mail.mil).
Due to the Army’s migration to the new Army Enterprise Email, emails that are sent to a user’s @us.army.mil address now forward directly to their @mail.mil address. A correctly-formatted Enterprise Email address will be either firstname.middle initial.lastname.mil@mail.mil, firstname.middle initial.lastname.civ@mail.mil, firstname.middle initial.lastname.ctr@mail.mil or firstname.middle initial.lastname.naf@mail.mil. In some cases, the middle initial will not be present, due to the sender not having a middle name.

Hi there, I have been ‘talking’ with a man from the US who says he is a peacekeeper in Afghanistan but although he has not asked me for money he wants to send me money and come and visit. I am getting very suspicious of this because he wants me to send him the ATM card from my bank although I don’t think it will work where he is. He says he is currently now in Singapore waiting for me to send the card so he can come to New Zealand, promising me all sorts of things such as a good life for me and my children etc,,,, I want to know if he is the real thing or not. His name and I can’t remember his title in the Army but his name is James Collins. I do have pictures of him that he has sent me. I need help URGENTLY. Thank you so much in advance.

Name : lucas hall
S.N. :146-53-392
Pay grade : Q-3
Troop No: B,2d battalion.
He wants me to send his commander a letter so he can get out and retire. He said that he has been in the army for 20 years.

Have been contacted so far by a Major General, two generals and a sgt, what the heck, all from Afghanistan.I am not even on any date sites. I am happily divorced, I enjoy penpals, but so far, I have been asked to receive a consignment, help with leave arrangements. Shame on these people, sorry for those who are looking for a relationship, but get realistic, you won’t find one on line. Think I will start my penpal group with prisoners, at least one would be safe with them behind bars.

(1022) Fiona says:

My name is Fiona and there is one Sgt. Castillo that I would like to verify and know.
His email is : sgt.grahamcastilo@outlook.com

We have been talking since last one month now.
He says he is 38 years old single, has never been married and have no kids.
He is from Orlando, Florida

He says that he wants to marry me and even said that he wants to come to India and meet my parents.
He also wanted to send a very expensive item to me but I said no.

I am really not sure if he is real or if this is a scam.

His complete name is Sgt. Graham Castillo and he says that he is a Bomb Disposable Officer posted in the peace keeping force in Egypt right now.

His facebook profile is new and has another soidier as friend on the list.
He has posted around 6-7 pictures of himself. and few pictures include other soldiers as well.

Before he posted his pictures on his profile ..he sent me an email. he asked my phone number , which i hesitated but then he said that it was security reason.
I did receive a code that I gave him and after that I got the email in my inbox.

He said that he would like to talk to me over the phone and he cannot further contact me by any other means except if i subscribe to the military channel card which he said will cost me around $250 (over 15000 in Indian rupees) and i told him that as of now i do not have much money to spare.
we do talk once in a while but not too frequently as he says his leader has given orders not to contact through online channel because of security reason and also coz he says he is busy. So he says he sometimes sneaks in and read my message that i send him on FB and replies.

He said I have to send an email to this email address: department_customercentre@usa.com
and tell them i would like to subscribe the card for a soldier posted in Egypt.

I want to confirm if he is actually the real Sgt, Graham Castillo.
Please help me. I have a lot of pictures of him if you want to see.

I would really appreciate your help, Thank You.

I was talking a “soldier” for a little over a month. Made all these wonderful claims to love me and take care of me and my kids. Lines of being soul mates and true loves. He claimed to be a widow and a single father. He almost had me sold till he told me he needed $520 for a “human affairs fee” so he could go on leave from active duty and come to me. He told me the military froze his accounts while he was deployed to Turkey and had no way of getting the fee. So I played along. Ok, I say, I’ll Western Union a money order to the base. He then flipped out “NO NO MONEY ORDER!! And the WU on the base has been closed down.” Really??? So I proceeded to do some Facebook digging because I found it very odd that a 46 yr old man only had 12 friends and only 1 picture. WOW what I found
They all had the same pics only 3-4, only had a few friends, some actually tried to make it look like they were real by posting here and there. I also came across the REAL soldier whose pictures were all stolen from him and used to deceive.
I will admit my heart was broken but at least my bank account was not!!
OH and “Alex” flipped out when I questioned him about it. HE had the nerve to claim to be victim of scammers!!!

I was contacted by a soldier named Clinton Daven on Facebook out of the blue! I did not know him. His story is that He is 2nd Lt in Kabul, His wife died in an accident. His daughter is 9 years old, living with his mother who is 70 years old in Miami Florida. He did not type well, his communication did not match that of a 2nd Lt. in the military. He did not understand my general communication, which was very disturbing. He used the word ‘cinema’ which I assumed he meant movies. His name on his military patch on FACEBOOK photos stated Davenport. His facebook page is under Clint Daven, if you care to take a look. He never mentioned money, but He quit corresponding when I asked for his full name, and wanting to be sure he was who he said he was. He found my name on the “Single Women’s” Facebook page….I only liked the page for their positive daily comments. SO that was my first clue…. I have searched many reports and have found this name to be in LOTS of trouble. So he may have used a military man’s photos.
It infuriates me that someone would pose to be our US Military personnel! I have a strong respect for them and that is the reason I was even engaging in conversation with this man anyway.
JUST BE CAREFUL! Block them…..Change your passwords….
He did mention about applying for early leave. that may have been the part where he was going to ask for money!!!!
I hope this helps ……..

#1031 Lilly he is a fraud thee Name is made up also he has been reading and he knows REAL Military Members have Jobs to do and cannot chat everyday.Don’t think he is real just because he has not asked you for money he has told you what he wants he wants you to open up a Bank Account for him.

IF he were A Real Military Member he would already have his OWN Bank Account.If you have not seen him on webcam or met him face to face and you met him on the internet and he claims to be a US Military member in Afghan he is a Scammer NO Exceptions.

If you open a Bank Account for him you will become a Mule others that he has scammed will be instructed to send money to the account which will be in YOUR Name NOT His.

Educate yourself ASAP Google Military Romance Scams

Also go to Scamwarners and Romancescam and READ and ask questions

Check his IP go to whatismyip.com he’s not in Afghan he’s in West Africa somewhere

NEVER send MONEY Nor give out your personal Information NOR get on Webcam for them

Also these scam artists are beginning to use services to make it seem like they are where they say they are. Google Talk and Skype offer services where you can buy a number from anywhere in the United States and other countries. This makes it possible for the scammers to convince the victim they are where they say by providing them with a “local” phone number.

They are also beginning to elicit help from criminals here in the US, they will have the victims wire the money to a person here within the US, that person then wires the money to the scammer. They keep a percentage of the money in return for being the go-between. Help us stop these criminals from taking advantage of these unsuspecting victims.

If you see something like this taking place, step in, shoot a message to the victim and explain why you think they are being scammed. These scams are increasing in occurrence, because they are working. Last our these Military/Romance scams sucked more than $100 Million out of the US Economy!

I had an email where the woman was so distraught over the plight of a Soldier who claimed to have been wounded, and needed money to get home from Germany, that she re-mortgaged her home and wired $48,000 to Nigeria! Yes, I actually spoke to this woman, unfortunately she did not contact me until after the scam took place.

Stay vigilant, and NEVER send money to someone you have never met! Also do not send items like laptops, phones etc to someone you do not know! If you have doubts about someone you have met online, send us an email. We would rather see a hundred emails coming in, than one American dollar sent to a scammer!

If you are a Military member, make sure your photos on Facebook are set so no one but your friends can see them. This can help to ensure your photos are not stolen.

To continue on in what I wanted to say…..

So, I was just still a little confused about the address, so I told him that, I was not going to send anything to him at that address, I was too scared to…
So, he told me that it was okay, not worry about it…And we continued to keep talking…and as we have been talking over all this time…he had started talking me, he was falling in love with me, and all his emails have so much love and passion, in them.. It has been making it very hard not to believe him….That he wants us to together and wants a life together…and he has made it sound, so wonderful…
So, nothing about the computer or phone was mentioned for days, and than once again, he wants to know, if I would still be able to send it to him, but to a different address, exactly here in the states…In Arkansas. to a woman, he said is a sister to his buddy there.
Because she is suppose to be going to Afghan to visit her brother.. and I needed it to be sent, so she would get it by Monday of next week, before she leaves..
That name and address is Carol Holt, 16711 Cactus Cove, Alexander, Ark 72002…
Well, I Google this address and find it to be a run down mobile home park…very weird to me…about her going to Afghan for one, since it is a expensive trip, and he had told me, I wasn’t able to come there. Because he plans to come to me soon…within a month he said..
So, again, I am very uncomfortable about sending anything to that address, also….So, I have recently emailed him, in question of this address.

January 24, 2014 at 6:20 am
(1042) Tina says:

Part 3 Continued….

And I sent him, addresses of a lot of places in Kabul, where he can go get his own computer and phone, to make it easier on him and me… but, I have also questions, he about…if he is a Retired Colonel, he can go and get these things for himself, that he can afford these things with no problem.
And questioning the way is it he keeps telling me, he has been in Afghan for three years now. But anyone that, can read…Google states that he has been in Japan, receiving honors and that he has going to be stationed there in Japan. Until he retired.. I did find, there is a Facebook site, under his name…and he told me, I can’t be befriended on there, because of his ex-
So, yes, I have questioned him about this yesterday, thru email., and I am waiting for his answers, yet today.
…And I have sent messages to that Facebook sites and still waiting for a reply…for some proof of who this man, really is…but no word yet….
I am so tired of this game. I feel, I am being played… It may, I am just being blinded by his words, I want to believe him so much, it hurts to think, it has all been a scam..
And I seriously need to know, who he really is… I am totally against a valor being stolen from an serviceman, that has done so much for his country. I am a proud mother of a US Army Soldier…and would not allow, it to be done to him… So, Can anyone help me, please

addendum to “1039 and 1045″. I received the following letter:
Von: Roberts, Michael L MAJ USARMY FIRST ARMY HQ (US) (michael.l.roberts1.mil@mail.mil)
Dear Ms.
I am a lawyer on Lieutenant General Michael Tucker’s staff and I am writing to you on his behalf. Lieutenant General Tucker is the Commanding General of First United States Army. We have received two letters from you detailing your dealings with a person masquerading as Lieutenant General Tucker. It is very unfortunate, but not uncommon, for criminals to impersonate public figures in an attempt to defraud people. Lieutenant General Tucker is very
concerned about this, but unfortunately there is little that can be done
except to report it to law enforcement. I have already filed a complaint
concerning this with the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3).
As you will understand, fraud and theft are not new crimes; but the internet has allowed unscrupulous individuals an additional forum from which to launch their criminal activities. You can be certain that the individual that you have been dealing with is not Lieutenant General Tucker. Imposters have used the identity of Lieutenant General Tucker as well as that of many other United States General Officers in an attempt to commit fraud and theft. The criminals have been known to use Facebook, Skype video, and other social media in an attempt to convince victims of their identity.
I recommend that you immediately cease all contact with the imposter and notify law enforcement authorities.
Major Michael L. Roberts
Chief Prosecuting Attorney, First US Army

following irritates me:
this “lawyer” who died two years ago in Afghanistan!
two law offices not confirmed to me that this “lawyer” works for them!

That’s when I started digging for information on the internet. His story matches up with somethings but not with others. Really confusing!! I will not give money out and he knows it, yet he is still talking to me. Oh yes and he sent a video message through yahoo messenger but no sound.

So I scanned a bunch of these comments and see only male scammers. I just had a funny encounter with someone posing as a female soldier named Andrea Kent deployed on a “peace keeping mission in Egypt”. We met on OK cupid but decided to contact using google chat which isn’t uncommon. She then gave the whole sob story of both parents having died and a small daughter being raised by someone random…who knows where. At this point I smelled a rat but figured just maybe she was some lonely GI gal…what the hell, I’ll keep her company on the webs here and there…why not? And then comes the request for money to pay for internet access “so we can always be in contact”. “Otherwise the admin won’t allow it”. Soooo funny. I replied that I would send 5 billion 1st thing in the morning. Anyway, to all the fellas in the house, watch out for a super cute gal that types messages like a Nigerian guy….keep clear!

Hehehehehe on a light note i would like to say that ladies really fall for the war men i too did.I have always wanted and admired military men so when Gen Stephen Townsend came to my life i knelt down and thanked God my dreams had come true i only wanted a military man but God gave me a general too big a dream for a local girl like me.A son studying a diplomatic course was introduced to me and started calling me mom immediately.I was sandwitched with love,songs and poems and being so lonely and divorced i fell for it.I was promised marriage big wedding cars which i have never driven and a big company to be opened in my country for me all a girl ever dreamt of.I HAD FOUND LOVE AT LAST.This is until the son started asking for exam fee and the dad being in war zone couldnt acess his accounts.The rest is history my friends i have two things now a broken heart and a debt of $500 i aimost died in shock!

I receive a message from US soldier on facebook.com; His name is Cap. Kelly, Allan, 52 years – From Dallas, TX – US ARMY deployed on Afghanistan. Kellyallan77@yahoo.com. We already make contact by chatting on yahoo messenger for the last 1.5 weeks. He has pictures posted on facebook, but I am sure that was his pic. During our conversation(s)…..I have suspicious him as a scammer. This individual has a daughter who is sick in the US and his wife passed away and has requested funds for bundle package for the phone and services. Then we emails from this telecom services asking for payment. Then he requests us to contact the leave department to get him home for his daughter. WATCH OUT LADIES.

Well….. Have a feeling I can add my name to the list of swept of my feet by these guys. Luckily I caught on before I forked over any money. Via different dating sites I started talking to 2 guys (don’t judge, I wasn’t looking for more than one guy). One Air Force, One Army. Both stationed out in Kabul (of course). Both claiming to be widowed, with children (one had a parent helping, one had a cousin). Typical story by the sounds of it with both of them regarding feelings.

The one in the air force was just re-deployed to Africa (WARNING HORN DID SOUND HERE) and yesterday asked me to help pay his internet so we could continue to talk – shocked me as I wasn’t expecting that at all. I naturally put him off and started to do research.

The Army guy has just (also yesterday) asked me to help him out with a “care package” and would get me the details. Nothing about money, but while I was researching, I came across a website where he was blasted all over it with reports of similar stories.

My only concern is one of the two does have my address (thought he was gonna send a letter on Valentines Day) and email, but as I’ve been talking to them via yahoo messenger, they have no other personal info.
Should I be more concerned than I already am?

(1069) Lynn forrest  He is a scammer because he is lying and asked for money. Soldiers have full access to their wages. If he was that stuck he could get a pay advance from the Army. Send nothing.
(1070) AngieB  They are only after money and if they know they won’t get it they will soon forget you and vanish. You may get some spam and stupid scam letters but you know what to do with those. If they were on paper I would suggest wiping your ar**e on them.

February 28, 2014 at 12:51 pm

(1067) TAP This is a scam. If you open an account he will use it for money laundering and you could be held responsible . He can pay in a fake cheque which will seem to clear at first and expect you to send cash from the account. Western Union transfers to strangers on Internet are ALWAYS A SCAM. It can take 3 months for a fake cheque to finally go through the clearing system. You will discover you have no money and sent to a fake.
He is supposedly in the Army and on good pay so he can easily set up an account himself . He is a Nigerian liar of course. Dump him and never do such a thing or consider doing it.

Ladies, after emailing just a few days and already started to fall in love, my niece told me that a friend of her was a victim of this sick “game”.
I was not sure if “my” General could be part of it, as it all seems so plausible.
But what I have called “fast forward” was a thing that disturbed me (just a litlle) from the very beginning. And when my niece warned me I tried – what another of us romantic idiots recommended months earlier – the google image thing. I did not find any of his pics, but if found one of his so called daughter Jessica. Jessy is neither 9 (she’s 12) nor his kid, she’s a female teen actress called Fatima Ptacek, who won the 26th annual kids choice award (e.g.). So: bingo!
Names General Richard Hawkins. I’m sure he does exist, but also sure he does not know what’s going on. So beware. He’s good at faking, I’m not naive, I’m 46 and don’t believe everything and I’m glad to be single. But that was my point: to find someone who is not always around. So even then: I’ve got trapped. Beware!

leave.mil@consultant.com Has anyone ever heard of this website?
it is the way to send a letter to request a soldier to take a 3 month leave.
you open it up and you have to pay $550.00 for the emergency leave forms.
Now has anyone heard of tel@consultant.com? you have to pay $250.00 ( half of what the soldier paid) to be able to talk to him
over in afgstn,

This goes to the agent named ABE JUSTIN in San Antonio Texas.

Has anyone heard of Michael Gary Monsantos?

March 14, 2014 at 5:17 am

(1083) jan beck .This is a free emailer , similar to Yahoo or Hotmail that anyone can use.Soldiers do not pay for leave and neither can you request leave for a soldier. You do not have to pay to talk to soldiers and they don’t either, they can use a mobile phone. It is a money request from a fake soldier and always a scam.

(1079) Christine. He is a scammer.

Soldiers in Afghanistan or anywhere in active service do not have time to talk to strangers -which is YOU- on the internet. They have hardly enough time to talk to family and may if they are lucky manage 20 minutes a week, and it will not be time wasted on you. Soldiers are not spending time looking for women on Facebook and dating sites. Any that contact you are fakes. For deployment zones see this link. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_military_deployments. There are no soldiers in IRAQ, LIBYA, SYRIA.
Bear this in mind–In all of the above posts NOT A SINGLE QUESTION HAS REVEALED A REAL SOLDIER. SO before you ask I can confirm your soldier you are going to post about is 100% a dirty filthy criminal after your money. SEND NOTHING, ACCEPT NOTHING, AND DO NOT GIVE OUT PERSONAL INFORMATION.

He find me on ARRP and supposedly was coming home from Kabul, afgan the end of March. Coming home to make a life with me, fell in love and just sucked your heart in with all the kind words and then wham! He asks for money for an emergency for his son and caretaker and knows I am not working and then asks me to borrow it or get it from daughter. All the red flags I’m finding out.

Well after reading other comments I guess I am a fool also. This guy “Bill Armstrong”, sgt. Stationed in Kabul and deployed in Nigeria, contacted me on Facebook. He soon started about wanting to get a secure phone line. It was 650.00. I told him there was no way I could spare that much. Later I did send him $350.00. Then last Thursday he tells me his son need $200 for meds. Has a kidney problem and needs a kidney transplant. Oh him mother and father were killed in a common car accident and his wife died in childbirth. I just couldn’t understand his interest in an older woman. He’s supposed to be 44. I just have such a soft spot in my heart for the American Soldiers. I was so hoping he was real.

I have met a James Bill currently serving in Afghanistan and kept a 2 months communication, during our communication it started knowing each other, exchanging photos and sooner than that it later took our online chat to shopping list of laptop, camera, iphone and monetary for food to purchase at the military store. So I procrastinated sending any of his requests….instead I started asking questions (Ranks, Years of Service, Family History, etc) I can never get a straight answer but only a one word answer. Well, the conversations came to a halt for a good month. After that one month passed, I got contacted by a Kevin James with the same photos that James Bill had used earlier, so I asked this Kevin James, what had happened to him that we just stopped chatting…did I spook him off, for the life of me he had no knowledge of what I was talking about…that is when a “RED FLAG” came into place. Days later another individual contacted me by the name of James Wilson and again same photos used like James Bill and Kevin James used earlier…..here I was thinking it’s the same man, I decided to continue chatting to compare their interest, their information, their background…well all three were different. So I decided to delete any information or contacts with them. Couple of days ago, they rose from the dead and all three contacted me again through email same time, same day but different email address…..asking where my abouts, what I was up to, why I’m I ignoring, did I send off what each of them requested like I was married to them….L M A O !!!!! Well, I work for the Air Force myself as an IT, did my research and all 3 had a different IP address and I immediately reported them to the following:



Here are the 3 separate emails or IM chat

Shown In army gear with the name Lopez on his shirt obviously overseas, nice suits around town, sitting at a table with a knitted cap on with his right arm tattooed up and big brown eyes looking right into the camera. Also with a white shirt and white pants sitting on the grass. Not smiling in any picture. Guess what? I got roses, a bear and chocolates from him also before he hit me up for $14,000.00 to pay his general to let him get out of going on patrol to come home to me. I told him that is not how the U.S. Army operates. He said it shouldn’t but that’s what is going on. Everyone who has contacted me on Match.com has been a scammer. About 20 out of 20. Also watch out for guys who say they are civil engineers in another country. They are just as bad. God I would like to know who this Lopez guy is just to make him aware of what is going on, plus he is probably the most handsome man I have ever seen. I can;\’t stop looking at him!

I had a doubt about this soldier because of many experienced i had before, some are engineers and mostly soldiers. Asked the basic info, then after 3-7 days told they love me. At my age i know it is very hard to believe especially if i didnt heard his voice or see him on camera. I told this Lt. Col. If he wants money he met a wrong person and go away but he insisted he loves me truely. I continued my communication with him until i see this page about fake soldiers because i searched the name of this Lt. Col. Then i sent this link to him and told him if he is one of the said soldiers in this link, he can leave me alone for good. From then on, never heard from him anymore.

Hello All,
Looks like a lot of ladies are being scammed, but here is the reverse.
A lady calling herself Catherine Gondeiro. Here is what she gave me for details. Sounds real ?
Name: Catherine Gondeiro Batch NO: BTTR44893585424BRIT201 Camp no: TR42983201MIL
britisharm.dept@consultant. com

She and I met on a dating website and pretty soon we were hitting it off. I know there are scammers, but from the military ? I am ex military( from India) and have so much respect for these folks.
Long story short, she wanted to come see me and wanted money for admin charges and Flight logistics. Amount about $800.00. She says she is a Lieutenant in the EMT and serving with the British Army in Turkey. She has a phone number with country code 90..it checks out…it is from Turkey. She says she is Australian who migrated to US. I spoke to her many times and her accent checks out.
She is sweet and kind and I cannot find anything wrong but my instincts are screaming at me..that something is off and I found your webpage.
She wont skype. But she sent me many pictures of her in uniform. Her facebook page has many friends, she has real pictures…
Except for asking for the money for flight logistics as she calls it…she seems very real.
Any thoughts ? Oh btw..i told her I dont have the money to give her. And I dont intend to.

Thanks for your comments !!

This is 100% scam. The email address given is a free mailer used by anyone and “@consultant.com is” popular with scammers. Turkey is a major hub for criminals from Africa. In Turkey, from Australia, now in US. What would she be doing in the British Army? It is a LIE. It is a man after your money and is not sweet and kind. I will seek the details from what you have given and try tonail this scammer to the wall, unless you have links to make it easier for me.

I was contacted 2 weeks ago by a “US Marine”, within a week he was declaring his undying love, saying we would get married. He then said we needed a secure military phoneline, so that we could talk, as he was desperate to hear my voice. He told me to email his general, then general mailed me back, saying it would cost £320 and to send my details so it could be set up. I sent nothing as I do not have that sort of money.

The marine said he would be patient, so that I could raise the money, still saying he wanted to hear my voice. Then it changed, all of a sudden, he wanted me to arrange leave for him, and only I could do this. I would have to make a financial contribution, to pay someone else to cover his duties, whilst he is away. I was told by him this would cost a further £2000.

By now my suspicions are rising, undying love within a week, asking for nearly £3000. I looked into it and found it is a scam. Thank god, I was not silly enough to send any money or fall for the cheesy chat up lines.

He sent photos and songs to me via facebook. I just hope the real marine, whose picture it was, is safe and well.

The fake marine, told me he was on deployment in Nigeria.

There’s a guy on lovoo dating site called mike david I believe someone is impersonating him. 3 days of chatting to him on yahoo messenger he loves me , wants to marry me ,I went along with it because I thought soon he will ask me for money and sure enough he asked me for a £100 , which he won’t get from me, what alerted me was he didn’t write like you would expect an American captain would , to me he was more Nigerian ,the story he told was his wife and 1st child died in a car accident and he just has his daughter . I believe someone is using this soldiers identity .

I would like to warn you about a man going by the name of Harry Thatcher Klein, we met on Mingle2. Got to admit from his picture he was very good looking, but having heard about men posing as US service men before I was very reluctant to get involved. He asked me to add him as a friend on Facebook so we could chat. That was fine, until he told me he had downloaded a picture of me, so I restricted his access to my account. So we started chatting late on Monday and chatted a bit more the next day by 3rd day he was declaring his undying love for me.He said he was a sgt in the E-7 riffles stationed in Syria on Peacekeeping. He also told me he wanted to move to the UK once he had finished his tour of duty. He told me he had a daughter, who was being looked after by his cousin whilst he was in Syria. His parents had died when he was very young making him an orphan, but he was brought up by and Aunt and Uncle who had since died. The mother of his daughter had died as well. His plan was to go home to the US then move to the UK to be with me, to be my soul mate. He also told be he was going to get some money from a ‘beneficiary’, and when I queried this he told me it was money for his ‘good service’ in the army. Apparently when you leave the army in the US they kindly give you money and for 15 years service he expected to get between $1m and $1.5m when he left!! I checked with some American friends and not one of them knew about this. Then I came across this website and read that there was no soldiers in Syria. When I confronted him with this information, he told me he was working undercover … yes I did have to laugh at that. At this point I said I am sure that if he was working undercover he would have had to sign the US version of the Official Secrets Act … to which he then deleted his facebook account. I reported him to Mingle2 as a scammer. So be warned … if it sounds too good to be true, thats because it is!

Does anyone know a Sgt. David Parker or Sgt. martin Parker. He says he’s in Libya with the US Army and requesting money for leave. Definitely a scammer.

I also meet a guy and I have doubts about him because he asked for money of course, not too much but still… He sent me many pictures and when I asked him to prove his identity he did it. I asked him to send me a new picture with him keeping a sheet of paper on his hands and with a message on that paper… He did it. But I still can’t believe because is about money…
Did anyone meet a situation like this?

(1127) PAULINA says:

To aria51. I met the same situation like yours. The guy I met sent me the updated pictures which showed him in a good shape of an soldier on duty (plus a short gun). He did very soon, but the Photoshop could help him a lot, I guessed. However, it is still about money.

Has anyone heard from a Lieutenant Walter Brew US Army. Been chatting for a few weeks and hasn’t asked for money or anything but little things keep red flagging for me. He’s sent plenty of pics including ones of him as a child. (Has same birthmark on face so it seems to be his childhood pics)
