- I met someone online that seemed sincere. We talked about one month. He told me he lives in Madrid Spain. He started telling me he love me and called me everyday. I called him once and a while as well. He said he was leaving his job to move to the US. He even sent me an airline ticket for next month. We spoke later and he told me he needed to move 3.8 million dollars out of Spain into the U.S. I told him to contact JP Morgan Chase and open an account. He said that would be complicated because he lives in Spain and get this works for a bank. I told him he can transfer the fund to the bank in the U.S. He kept saying I spoke with my director and my lawyer and they said I could use an account in the U.S. so he asked me to let him transfer the money into my account. I told him no. Now I will see if he calls me again. I was alway suspicious but now I know this was a possible scam.

- I met this guy in skout and he ask me if we chat on yahoo. He is using an officer's photo and he said he is jose jordan, I believe in him coz on his uniform his last name is on it. After we chat for a couple of time he ask me to send a letter to their captain so I can request for a vacation leave for him, because he doesn't have any relatives nor girlfriend, I fell for this but when his captain response, he is asking for an amount as a payment for his vacation because he said his mission is still not complete so I need to pay for it, but I never send any amount, I ask a friend from the military too and she said the letter was fraud. Poor soldiers that their identity are being used by these scammers.

- advice from a retired mil if you suspect something, ask your potential guy to send you a quick test email from their work email. it should be .mil or .gov if they say they cant, or wont because of something, most likely its a scam. beware if they ask for money to get out of a jam. its a scam. In my years in service, I never heard of the DoD having a welfare dept. if they ask for money thru western union or moneygram. its a SCAM.

- On Zoosk...widow, 4 years old daughter, sent me pictures of him in uniform and with his daughter. Said he was deployed in Syria from US Ft Drum and was a Master SGT. Suspected immediately as his writing suggested English was not his first language. But, with that in mind continued. Then realised he had put his address as Gosport, Hants, UK on Zoosk. I led him with some questions and then he asked me to send him a cell phone. Very specific and the amount was too. He then emailed to say I was to send the amount to a Western Union Office as follows: Names: GEORGE ERIC City: Kajang State: Kuala Lumpur Country: Malaysia Amount: 489.91 Pounds sterling. I won't tell you what my email contained in response!! But beware this man.

- I received message on yahoo messenger from someone claiming to be an E-6 in the army in Kabul, Afghanistan. He sent pictures which I laughed totally at because his name was James Fischer but when you looked at his uniform, his name tag said James. Well everyone knows that is your last name not your first on your uniform. and he had E-8 rank not E-6. Sent me pictures of his home and he claimed to live in Ohio but his home pictures had palm trees and beaches in them? I confronted him right off the bat and he just continued to insist he was real. Said he was graduating from E-6 to E-9 at the end of the month and his daughter is in a boarding school in Ghana. So the daughter was being taken care of by a caretaker in Ghana and she needed money for final exams? The argument just goes on and on from there as to why I won't send him money.

- Thomas Mick is the same as Thomas Hutton and Gareth Jones. Thomas Mick asked me for a package and afcourse money. I thought if you can play a game, i also can play a game. I asked for his adress. His diplomat was in Ghana. Fuseini Arafat in Tamale. I was googlen and there I found Fuseini Arafat in armee in Ghana Tamale. I never gave him money or things( phone and camera). I hope they can find the people who used photos from other soldiers. I have to tell that where beautifull photo's. But send money and a package to someone you only know at fb or something. No thank you.
- I'm on my second scammer now. It only takes common sense. YOu don't give money to someone you've never met! I fell for the first one but I never sent money. I figured it out after he didn't show up for our meeting and then asked for money. Think about it people. Don't do it. They do NOT love you. I'm now playing with the 2nd one. I'm wasting his time. I'm waiting for the money request. He has just gone out of the country for his work. Of course he loves me. Lost his wife in a car accident. Has a kid. They always have to go out of the country for work. They always have money problems. They always need you to help them. If you love them you will do it. DON'T BE STUPID. PLEASE. NEVER, NEVER SEND THEM ANYTHING. Don't give them any banking information. Use your heads.

- Claimed he was an owner of a construction company in Indiana and was moving to my home town. After a month of many phone calls, sending me poems and proclaiming his love for me, he asked me for money since he and his 32 construction workers were mugged in Cairo. Finally told him to stop calling me. Loved the idea of him - but was not foolish enough to send him money.

- Sargeant First Class Christopher Handle - Be ware! He will ask you for money with no thought at all. He is between Afghanistan and Accra and needs money, more money, and more money. He is very creative with his stories and makes your heart bleed. He is a real creeper and ladies be ware! He will get romantic at warp speed and uses all of the right language to worm you in. I am out about $25,000 and so ashamed of myself. Learn from my mistake.
