Did I miss any? Met on a dating site. Lots of military members do use dating sites to meet people in their community. But you should know that bad guys use dating sites, too. They are trolling for women they can scam. If he asks for money, it is a scam. Report him to the website and stop communicating with him. Gives an imaginary name. It probably means they just have Photoshop. If they ask for money, it is a scam. Cannot access his bank account.
Military members can access their money from overseas. They pay bills online, buy items from websites and even arrange for car loans. If they ask you for money -- even a loan, this is a scam. Needs money to come home from down range. Their travel arrangements are made and paid for by the government. If they ask for money, this is a scam. Service members do not have to pay for internet connections, food or travel expenses etc. Even if a service member misses a connecting flight, the military takes care of this.
If someone you met online claims to be stranded in an airport, do not send them money. Claim to be Special Forces. If these individuals really were in special ops, they would never tell you -- never. Deployed for three years. Military members can be sent on an unaccompanied tour for a year or two.
Deployments in the past have lasted up to fifteen months. Claiming to be deployed for three years is a play for your pity. Your family and friends think you are crazy. If your family and friends think this is a scam, it is. These people know you and they are not blinded by love.
But then, the scammer reverses the payment he made, or the credit card company finds out he paid with a fake check. So really, the credit card isn't paid off, and the victim has increased her credit card debt by taking a cash advance. The scammer gets away with the money. That happened to me but my credit card company will not let it go through until it clears his bank and when it does he can not stop the payment then I with draw all the money Bridget I have same exact problem you explain about the credit card.
He did the same with my checking. He took everything from me help. He hit me up too! My ex is retired Army so I know a thing or two. He should me his iD and it was a fake! He wore his Dress Blues in the pic! Then I noticed the Marine tats! He said he was Army.
His accuse, he wanted to be in The Marines and his dad made him go Army Then he asked me for Itunes card.. There should be a page we can post pictures!
The New Military Dating Scam
I have had the same experience. His name is mark portal. Same with me i have chat mate here in dubai he wants to meet me and mary me i dont know if its true.. I agree with you and would like to know the answer. I have been duped by David Martinez like the other woman said here.
Luckily I saw that comment and blocked him from contact before he was able to ask for money. Can you tell me about what David Martinez scam was like my mother is currently taking to a David martinez and I keep telling her it is not real and she is believing everything he is telling her. I knew a David Martinez 2 months ago at the site "You Love". He is definitely a scammer. All required signs by authorities' advisers are on him and finally he asked me for money that, obviously, I did not send.
Widow 4 years ago, 2 children a daughter of 12 years old and a son of 4 years old , do not write correct english, claims to be australian, independent contractor and in a short while felt in love with me I recently found out that I am being scammed.
A man from Africa asked me to help his customers hey their purchases to them since they like American made products. I agreed, then recently found our the stuff was obtained illegally. I want him to know that he had hurt a very nice woman. I'm afraid of his potential reach. I'm going to stop communication and tell him that I'm returning the items to the stores they were stolen from.
And that he need never contact me again. These are useful details for a complaint. Please report your experience at ftc.

I met someone via BharatMatrimony.
Its a Indian Dating Site. I met someone who claims to live in LA is a Doctor. His name is Dr. He also has a facebook page. He said he was going to Malaysia for a trip. He is still talking to me and I am pushing for a face to face meeting. Usually scammers will not meet in person. I only found a facebook profile, and a phone number linked to California. So I am using extremely caution. I am pushing for this meeting. I reported it to the website but he is still on there. I'm talking to a man that claims to be a dr.
For the United Nations in Syria. How can I find out if he is legit? I talked to that same person said doctor for the UN working in Syria.
Get away and block him. Told me his wife and daughter had been killed in a car accident. It made me angry to think he thought I was stupid enough to fall for that line of crap. Figure two can play his game. You still sick uestion pecan street and have scammers answer once you feel the eighty's when you get up and have some answer them this correctly if they don't answer that means they're still scam when you get online with friends colleagues family members in order to get online these questions from childhood italy you know when you're growing up.

I played this game scammers for about a year after that they stopped communicating with me all at once I also sent them a picture of a safe full of a lot of money and said to them you answer these questions correctly I'll send you this I never heard from them again its called reverse psychology this is one way to start messing with their heads and I'll never bother you again and this cure the epidemic of scammers infesting our websites and our Internet networks try it Hi, I had the same experience.
Actually I received this kind of email twice but they didn't get anything from me. I both met them in skout. The first person is Lieutenant Thomas Moore widow and with daughter under guardian. He was from USA but assigned in Sudan. I forgot much info about him but I remember he is so sweet which this stuffs can surely make me doubt. Okay we never get to the point where he asked me money because after he sent me email of letter format to send to his USA army leave department I get alarmed.
I would never give any information especially our address to him. Below is the letter. And after i said No he said goodbye and sound upset that i don't trust him.
Well I'm not that desperate in love so sorry for him. Your City, State, Zip Code Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, Sudan. I humbly request for the leave of absence of my fiancee Lieutenant Thomas Moore, who serves in the Djibouti,Sudan, for an official military assignment and he has been there for a period of 6 months now. I'm Lieutenant Thomas Moore's wife to be, and i'm applying for his leave request for three 3 months based on confidential family issue.. He will perform [active duty] with the United States Coast Guard beginning soon.
However, I want to let you know these details regarding his military absence. Yours Sincerely Signature Name. Luckily I was not able to do so I was stopped by Wetern U staff not to send money over to him unless i know him.You Can't Date Other Military Members!?!?
And also he email me a minitary leave form saying that i must register my particular in it in order for him to get out from his mission ground in Afica and will go back to states and will visit me in Singapore I than felt is so wired to heard all these.
I felt he is a scammer. So what can I do? After 4 days, the airway cargo service called me and said that the package he sent was found with raw cash, l had to pay the penalty to get the package clearance from GuangZhou…….
Then, l refused to do so. Anyone who interested to have a look please email me at engelhardt. Wish everyone is safe and not get hurt by the scammers out there. Contact us on bans.
Ghana is also considered Scam Central as is Nigeria. I my fiance where he is currently serving in Afghanistan, leave of absence, since I have to pay euro deposit, everything is ok, but there is U. Army agent fees are in her name to the army transit account.
Google Translate for Business: Hi again I also feel I can only do one more thing to try to fix this and make me feel better. Thank You, be careful out there online people, Frank H.
So the only thing I guess I could do to fix this problem was to Unfriend this Taylor Dewitt and Blocked her Facebook page because after unfriending they still message me.
Dating military format
Her name was Taylor Dewitt age 33 single with 8 year old little girl back in the states with a nanny. Received friend request on Facebook. She was a only child lost her parents at young age in a car crash, grew up with grandma. In one month I was the world to her all in love with me and missed me so wanted to spend the rest of her life with me.
Remember now we did not know each other or see each other. Very True Story, Frank H. Hi, I think surely i met a scammer, same with stories above that we met on a public internet dating website.
Just about several days he showed me how much he fell in love with me wants to start a new life. I always have a doubt on him because of his poor English grammar while he is an US military personel. He is from Texas and has been debloyed in Irag about 3 years. And he always excuse that he can only chat and email because of security reason. After 2 weeks, he asked me help to email to transitdepartmentusarmy usa. Even I did just email only but I start to search more information on scammer and i read this website at right time.
Can anyone help to check a guy name: Harper Jones Phills harperjones26 yahoo. Is he a true military personel? One just wishes it was easy to meet people without all the lies and deceptions.
Live and learn, as they say. Juan Perez messaged me on Facebook, then suddenly he was Chandler Smith. Now all of a sudden he is engaged, has no Facebook friends, etc. Need to talk to someone about being scammed. He goes by Steve Floyd email address floyd yahoo. Braggs about owning 4 bed room home that his parents live in to take care of while he is away in Kabul Afghanistan.
I have military family in all branches of the service and knew this was too good to be true. I know he has a Face Book account Name of: Scary is that they are all him. He also sent me two others with him in in combat uniform and it is the same guy in all pictures. And one of him on a crotch rocket. I know a little about bikes so I questioned him on the make and model. He had avoided the question entirely.
Would like some feed back on this please. Your instincts are correct. They usually wait for a few weeks or even months before asking for money. Generally, they want to get you hooked before they ask for money. Every soldier has one of these official e-mail accounts. The e-mail addresses always end with. Army encourages deployed soldiers to use these accounts to keep in touch with family and friends back home. You should also ask him for his physical address.
Tell him you want to send him some home baked cookies. No soldier would turn that down. I received dozens of packages and letters while I was deployed to Iraq in I just wrote in last week about needing to talk to someone about being scammed. This guy goes by the name Tomson John Carrick.
E-mail address tomcarrick83 yahoo. Claims to have been raised by Aunty in UK his parents died when he was young He has a 15 year old son, which is Aunty is raising. I really thought this guy was alright after talking to that Steve guy. I mention Steve to him and he said there were a lot of weary people I had to watch out for!
He is also stationed in Kabul Afghanistan. Where as Steve wanted me to send him money for a phone, I went a step further with Tomson. I asked him if I gave him my phone number would he call me. Said he would talk to his commander and in two days called!
Spoke to him briefly and he seemed like a nice guy. Ok all seems good. My birthday is coming up. He wants to ask for leave to come meet me. I am recently widowed. Now here is the play. I cannot and will NOT get a loan for anyone! And I told him this. Because of my financial situation at the moment. He became really concerned about how I was managing without funds and what not and he could not stand by and watch me do without while he had the money to help me..
And I am not entirely stupid. I was just looking for people to talk to Now look at the mess! He said no problem, he had the money but could not send me money direct. He does want me to open an account online with http: That he is actually with the Army. I am going to ask him about the AKO you mentioned He would send me money to help out with the bills. I just wanted him to see him on my birthday.
I looked it up on line and it seems like a legit company. I stopped when it asked me for my social security number! OK instincts were correct. I told him because of the recent death of my husband, I cannot give my social tied up in legal matters etc..
He keeps insisting I get it done. How is it possible for him to obtain my account on that site if it is a secured site and not part of a scam itself?? How are they getting the info out of that site, if it is a true company? Makes me worried and wonder how good these jerks have gotten!! If it is a new scam or have you heard about it already? Would like some feed back on this too please. And Thank you on the Steve Floyd one as well. I have posted where I think women would look to see and be aware of these guys.
This will lead to your financial RUIN. USAA is a financial institution used by American soldiers and civilians alike. It is not a government agency however.
If you still think this guy is real, ask him for his physical address. Second, ask him for his AKO e-mail address. American soldiers are encouraged by the Army to keep in touch with friends and family using these e-mail accounts.
A real AKO e-mail address will end with. Scammers sometimes create e-mail addresses that look similar to official e-mail addresses. The fake ones will end with. Has any one had a run in with a guy going by the name John Richard?
I met him on a chat site and have been very suspicious of him since the day we started chatting. He has pics posted of him in uniform and his name plate says Arnold. When I confronted him with this he claimed that he changed his last name because a fellow comrade had the same last name. I find that to be a big crock of yeah. He has not yet tried to hit me up for any money but he is constantly asking how I make a living and how I support myself.
I have not divulged too much personal information to him. I have major trust issues. Many of the things he is telling me does not add up, He uses the email address johnrichard gmail.
He also has a facebook account which he rarely uses. He gave me the same sob story ive seen on here many times that his wife and little brother were killed in a horrific accident. Any time I ask him questions about certain things he either goes offline or avoids the question. The has also raised my alert monitor. If anyone else has had contact with him pleast let me know. You can prove it by doing two things. First, ask him for his APO address.
All deployed soldiers have a physical address. Friends and family often send letters and packages to deployed soldiers.
I received dozens of packages during my year-long deployment to Iraq. He lives in Ghana or Nigeria. You would be very suspicious if he gave you an address in one of those countries. Second, ask him for his official military e-mail address. If he gives you a. That can be faked. From shaadi personals, I believe Michael Corbin is a scam.
His email address he shared: I was almost thinking there was no hope to reunite with my wife. But I read these good reviews about your work and bought one more spell. I put all my faith in you and followed your directions to the letter. We are happier now than ever. Everything looks perfect and so natural!
Thanks; if there is anybody how need help you can contact him in his email address now dr. I would like to know if anyone has had contact with a soldier in the army, stationed in Afghanistan, Jeff Martins, thank you,,. Has anyone been contacted by Frank roman his email is frank. I met him on a reputable Uk based dating website. He asked some hard questions in the begin about moral values and what I am looking ofr in a man. He says he is US military serving in Afghanistan.
He has a 15 year old daughter named Caroline. He lost his wife to Cancer two-three years ago. He is planning on starting his own business in the UK when he returns from Afghanistan. He claims to have a house in southern California and two cars. His sim card got shot in a gun battle with terrorists in Afghanistan and his friend gave him a new sim card. He needs credit for his phone and I offered to help him top up. I wanted to gather enough info before posting this. If this sounds familiar please contact me.
I am blown away at all of this crazy scamming stuff, and that this continues to happen. I am uneducated on this matter, but have become a current victim of this scam. I was approached on Match.
I have been told how great and amazing I am then asked many questions about how many men I date so on and so forth. I was then asked to send a lap top so that we could see each other better, because yes I did the web cam with him, and I believe that they are using pre made video to web cam back. When I asked him to wave at me the camera went out and he became mad ect, ect… The quick reference to I love you was the first sign for me as well as the poor use of English. I went on the web and found this site amongst many others with stories I really can not believe happened.
This is very concerning to me that there is nothing be done about these people its absolutely disgusting behavior…. Well here is another one to add to the pile of crap. Wish someone could catch these guys.!
He is very smooth. Said he wants to marry me so I can be with him forever. He wanted me to send it Western Union to him. Said he lived in Russia and the US. There is a lot of them on the Badoo site. This guy was smooth. I was actually falling in love with this guy. Hi all, im so relieved to have found this website. I was talking to this officer named John Andrew from Aryan camp.
He instructed me to send an email to his general commander name Luis Jacob at jaclius yahoo. He said i have to pay USD for the deployment thru wstern union and i have the email and the leave application image and the bank account details which is to be transferred to them in my email still. Please advise this is another fraud case too. I have met a Sgt. Roy Coltons on datehook up. Second, there is no fee associated with a leave request.
If a soldier wants to go on leave, he simply turns in a completed form to his supervisor. There is no cost whatsoever. Finally, only the soldier can request leave for himself. Hi there some time ago i think early i was contacted by a man on facebook by the name of Ben Jackman sounded fishy so i went for some reason to Fort Hoods web sit i did find a Ben Jackman but the guy who was calling him self Ben Jackman did not match just had a odd feeling especially when he said i had to get in touch with his commander so they could send me over line release forms for him to be disgarged for personal reason.
First of all, a lieutenant colonel in the U. Only sergeants and other enlisted soldiers have MOSs. It stands for military occupational specialty. An officer would never be allowed to do this job.
An officer can supervise bomb technicians but he cannot be one. That alone should be enough to convince you. I also checked under all employment catergories active-duty, reserve, national guard, civilian employees, contractors, and retirees.
Tell him you want to send him a greeting card or a box of homebaked cookies. That will be a lie. Real American soldiers receive care packages from home all the time. I received dozens of packages during my deployment to Iraq in and I was contacted through match. He talked a good talk until he asked for money to pay for his sons soccer trip because his brother used the funds. This was a red flag for sure. After I told him he was caught, he began very rude comments through messenger email and messenger were the only way we talked Looking back now there were so many more signs and it is so sad that people out there do that.
Has anyone else heard from him? You have rated an Answer! From FranL Saturday, March 30, 9: So this is almost cerainly a scam to get your money and phish for personal identifying information to commit identity theft down the road.
The minute a so-called US soldier asks you for money he is scamming you. The minute a US soldier involves you in any enteprise having to do with Africa he is scamming you. US soldiers can mail packages, use telephones, use the internet and get to their bank and credit card accounts no matter where in the world they are.
They have an enviable support network in the US government. Any suggestion to the contrary is pure nonsense, a figment of the imagination of West African scammers who have no idea how our military works.
US officers make a very fine living. This is not classified information. A real US soldier may have a classified email address as well, but he also has a regular military email address with which he can write to his friends and family. When he gives his email address to you, it should end in. Only US servicemen can get a. Scammers can fake that on the sending end and make it look like you are getting email from a. So if he does give you a. Then write a message and send it. The site I have linked you to should tell you if he is a soldier and then where he is and who his commanding officer is.
He has no reason to refuse to give it to you. The blogger is a soldier who was upset to find that someone had used his photo as part of a military scam.
He has created the blog to warn others, and he tries to keep these up to date as people report military scammers to him. Do not send him any money and do not give him a chance to further manipulate you. He is not who, what or where you think he is. If you have sent him money already, report the fraud to your local police to Scamwatch. Add his name to the military blog to warn others. If you need more help, please use the reply tab to continue our conversation.
If you need no further assistance, kindly rate my service, so I get credit for my work. The major red flags for me are that in less than two hours of meeting on a well known reputable dating site he is professing his undying love for me and wants me to basically tell him I am in love with him and I will wait the year or so he is deployed to be with him.
What I find interesting most of all is that when I asked him what time it was where he was and I calculated what the time zone difference should be he answered with the right number of hours, but also answered with a half hour difference. Do times zones go by half hours???? Usually these guys are very easy to spot because their English is so bad. His on the other hand is quite good, with the occasional typo or misspelling going on.
But that could be anyone in that regard. I am not sure how to proceed with this one. If anyone can shed some light if they have this same experience with him I would appreciate it.
His Yahoo screen name is tooshy First, offer to send him a letter or package with home baked cookies. No soldier would turn down home baked cookies. Who would turn down home baked cookies?
Because his address is somewhere in Ghana or Nigeria, not Afghanistan. They say the items will get to them quicker that way. How anyone falls for that line of BS is beyond me.
That is of course a lie. There has never been a mail bomb incident in the U. The e-mail address will end with. If he does send you an apparently geniune e-mail, be sure to reply to it by typing the address into your browser.
I think these scammers are now getting back to dirty business. I am a Filipino woman and had just received a message from Michael Homls a week ago saying he is a Brigaider. He said he is serving the military and now in Afghanistan and had his wife died of cancer 6 years ago and had a daughter. I came across this site.. Is there a way to find out who this person in the picture really is.. That description fits nearly all of these romance scammers. He found the pictures of a white, American soldier online and has been pretending to be that soldier in order to scam money from women around the world.
The page shows photos of some of these African scammers. Apparently, they sometimes show themselves accidentily or otherwise in video chats with their victims. So Im acting stupid right now and pretend I dont know he is fake.. I had small conversation today with him.. I did not want to ask her because I didnt want to look stupid.. So can you tell me what it means.. You should ask your friend.. OMG you would for me.. He is a single dad one daughter.. His english is actually very good.. I asked him one time why is talking to me and not working..
I did and he did say thank you.. I get a text on my phone.. I googled his name and pic and scam things came up.. I told him to go on FB type in the following name..
I told him of several other sites where Ifound his pics.. I found one pic with him it said.. So Im not sure.. He seemed to be very upset about the death of his friend..
When we talk we always talk about the same time everyday.. So what do you think.. I did ask forthem.. I want to give him a chance.. No other person is allowed to do this. The soldier simply fills out a form and turns it in to his supervisor. These African scammers try to build trust in their victims while making the victims feel sorry for them.
First, ask him for his official Army e-mail address. It should end with. That is a lie of course. Deployed soldiers are encouraged by the Army to communicate with their friends and family using their official Army e-mail accounts. If he does give you an Army e-mail address ending with. Second, you can ask to send him a package with some home baked cookies. A real soldier would never turn down home baked cookies.
If he gives you an address in Africa. Once again, that will be a lie. If he does give you an APO, New York address, ask him to tell you what was in the box allowing a couple of weeks for it to arrive in Afghanistan.
Well My so called soldier is suppose to be here end of the month I be more shocked and surprised if he does show up.. Has he sent you an e-mail from his official Army e-mail account? An official Army e-mail address will end with.
You have to ask yourself, why would someone I met on the internet want to involve me with his legal issues? Has your soldier asked you for money yet? You should visit the website below. Lots of good info about dating scams there. And the American government does not do anything against it! Let these men continue doing so!
Billy Lopez, was in Afghanistan when I started talking to him, then went to Syria and in the meantime, received his letter of retirement. Then he had to go to Ghana to pick up your bags, ended up going to England and now is in South Africa solving a matter with the bank Ecobank He said he is widower, has no children and no more living relatives, is 52 years old and his mother was an amrican nurse and his father Polish. What this making me angry and desperate is the fact that the name of his mother muto coincides with a story about another guy I read on the internet and many things he told me the story also hit with this other guy.
I saw this site that there is a Brazilian woman asked for this Billy Lopez , but I can not contact her. If it is possible please she contact me to see if the photos are the same. Then he had to go to Ghana to pick up your bags, ended up going to England and now resides in South Africa He said he is widower, has no children and no more living relatives, is 52 years old and his mother was a nurse and his father Polish American.
I saw this site that there is a Brazilian Billy Lopez asked for this, but I can not contact her. If it is possible please contact me to see if the photos are the same.
I just sent you an e-mail. Who do I contact to alert this person that someone is using his identity. I would message through facebook but I dont know if these sites are real either. I pulled up the two Facebook profiles for General Reynes.
The scammers are starting to realize that having a skimpy Facebook page ie. So, they sometimes add their real friends to plus up the profile pages of their fake soldiers. They often have other fake soldiers as FB friends. He is stationed in Afghanistan.
He is widowed due to breast cancer and has an adopted son James living in Ghana with a caretaker. Hi was wondering if any of you ladys had a run in with a William or Bill Ruddock? My mom meet this bill guy on match. Of course the package always gets held up in customs requiring a bribe or other payment. There is no package. If so, where is he stationed? Where is the package held up? Did his wife die from cancer or in a tragic car accident?
Does he have a child living with a caretaker in a foreign country? Has your mother met him in person? Talked to him on the phone? My guess is no. And yes he is in the Army in Afganastion? Thank you so much. The thief has stolen your money. The police in those countries will do nothing if you report the crime. All you can do is stop communicating with the scammer and post information about the scam on websites like this one and Romancescam.
Perhaps another woman will learn from your experience and not become a victim. Has anyone talked to a Sargeant John Caulde, his daughter lina tracy john, or deborah caudle. He is an orthopedic physcian in Baghdad. First, a sergeant cannot be a physcian in the U. There is no one with that name associated with the U. I checked all services Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines, and Coast Guard and all employment categories active-duty, reserve, national guard, civilian employees, contractors, and retirees.
Gordon, so what can be done about this. I have read so many stories of these people. It needs to stop. Thank you for the confirmation and the information. Every year, thousands of women and some men are scammed out of millions of dollars by these jerks in third world countries. There are two reasons for that.
