Information on romance scams and scammers.
#319633 by ajv1971 Thu Feb 16, 2017 9:48 am
Recently I met this woman from a dating site, she claimed to be in the military. We exchanged emails and she send me a lot of pics. She looks real good and even had a Skype account. She told me, she was doing a tour in Afghanistan and had a 10 hour difference (I live in Panama City Panama Central America)

After a couple of emails exchanged, she told me she wanted to share expenses to do a SAT phone call to my cell phone. I politely declined and told her we can keep in touch through email and Skype and we dont need to expend money on calls. I told here I would be able to wait until she finishes her tour, which she said would be in Sept.

I send her some videos on youtube of my work (I am a TV producer) and noticed youtube registered her views as in Nigeria not Afghanistan. Red flag there.

So based on your experience what you recommend?

It's a scam, you can see how the scam works on this thread:

The fact that HE (and yes, I said he) is checking in from Nigeria should tell you everything you need to know, too. Stop all communication with them and ignore any of their messages.

Please post any messages, emails, email addresses and their name (make sure to remove your personal information). This will help warn others.

Hey ********, nice reading back from you on here this evening cos its a great pleasure for me to be able to write back as well. Thanks for the pictures you shared too. I would really love to know you much better and get to see some more pictures of you Alberto. Am originally from Austin, TX and I grew up in the country side of Texas on a little farm in a small town known as Seminole. Am single and I have no kids. I work as combat medic with the US Army and I have been serving out here since last August. I was once in a loving a relationship but my fiance got killed a few years ago when he was serving in Iraq. But am over it and ready to move on with my life again. Am a very open and fun loving person with a very big heart. I enjoy the simple things of life and my hobbies are mostly outdoor activities like fishing, hunting, camping and swimming. I don't have much of a family right now cos I grew up moving from one foster home to another. My mom gave me up for adoption just immediately as she had me cos she had me at a very young age and no one to help her. But I finally got to reunite with her a few years ago but she also passed away last year due to cancer. I have step brother but we don't get along much since we didn't grow up together and we haven't even been in touch since mom passed away last year. I will have to stop here now and wait to read back from you soon again. Take good care of yourself and always be safe out there cos I just got started with you. Be Blessed!!!

No, because I refused.

Here are some photos. I discovered these pics had been used for several scams, since the last name "Caffey" is visible the real name of the soldier is "Cheryl Caffey" I think. There is a group in FB devoted to these "military scams" using pictures of military personnel for scams.
