Welcome to ScamWarners Baybrez1. that is a total scam. Do not send them any money. Civilians do not need to buy phones for military personnel.

Any time you are asked to send money by Western Union it is a scam.

Please post up the email address the scammer used to send these messages to you. You can also check the headers (instructions in my signature line) and often that will tell you what country the scammer is actually located in.

Just drop communication with the scammer and save yourself from losing money.

Guess what...her scams go to Craigslist too.

I was contacted by this person regarding an air conditioning unit I am selling on Craigslist. Several emails later, and I've given them a PayPal account to make payment to. When I got an email advising me that payment had been made, but to check my spam folder in email in case the notification had been sent there (which in fact it had), I checked the PayPal account and no activity was shown. I responded back that I was still waiting, and took the time to Google some of the info in the following emails (which said that a shipping payment was included, to be sent via Western Union to pay for shipment)...well, the emails from PayPal were bogus copies, and then I found this posting...so, be on the alert, y'all...

I was almost scammed by a very similar set-up. The soldier I corresponded with told me he had run out of phone money and needed me to send money to his "agent" so it could be put into an account for him. He sounded frantic in his text messages and didn't give very clear instructions on what to do. Eventually I understood what he wanted me to do. Send money to someone through Western Union. $100 wasn't enough. It had to be $300. When I got suspicious , he got more frantic sounding. Thank God Western Union held up one of the 2 transactions I made because the name of the person I was instructed to send the money to was on a list of suspicious people. My credit card company's fraud division called me to ask if the transaction was legitimate. and after I told him that, he tried to tell me to use a moneygram instead. I lowered my amount to $100 and told him I would add more later (totally not intending to but I wanted to know what he would do) He stopped all correspondence with me. I was feeling bad so I googled his name and there in front of me was the EXACT first email he sent to me. He had sent it to someone else word for word one month ago. He got $100 from her. Thankfully he got nothing from me! His name is Glen Lueker. Beautiful face, beautiful daughter...heart of stone.

I'm glad you were able to avoid being scammed.

Just to clarify, though: The scammer may have been using photos of a good looking soldier and a beautiful child, but in reality, the scammer has no connection to either of them. He is not American, and he is not a soldier. The scammers behind these particular crimes use fake names, photos copied from the internet, and even words stolen from websites like lovingyou.com.
