Please be warned of emails coming from "ts2techcenter@aol.com". It is a scam! He is impostering as U.S. Soldiers in need of a satellite phone (cost is $320). In the particular situation I know of he says his name is CPT Donald Beaumont but is sending pictures of a SGT Boggs (see picture below). He is preying on women who are on dating sites. Clearly this criminal is an idiot because he doesn't even know the military ranking system. I copied and pasted the email below:

Welcome here TJVaida, and thanks for posting this information. Could you please post a watermark on that photo saying "used by scammer"? It's a photo the scammer stole off the internet.
