Hi,

I was contacted about 4 days ago via Mate1.com, a dating site, and was approached by a soilder called Sgt Scott Ramos, aged 47 and currently serving in Iraq. Sounded great! He was very affectionate and asked about family life etc. I then get a further mail saying that he is dying to meet me and asks me to contact the Army for a Liberty Pass Form and I would need to forward a small fee to arrange for this. The light switched on like a supernova. I immediately checked on the internet for Liberty Pass, there is no fee, you do not pay for this service. His Username on Mate1.com is happylife7344. In the caption it says sweet love stgscottbell ATT YAHOO DOT COM (2 different names) His current email is [email protected], he wanted me off Mate1 and talk via Yahoo mail. I have emails and pictures stored if anyone wants any more information. :oh-joy:

Please do post the emails, etc. as they can be very helpful to other targets--scammers often use the same scripts even after they change fake names. Just remove any of your own personal details, e.g. name, location etc.

We also want all email addresses posted in all ways they would be written. Email address is one of the first things a potential victim will search, and we want google to pick up this thread so a potential victim can find the scammer's information. For google purposes I am also putting the second email address in regular form in addition to the form the scammer used in his caption (which was undoubtedly to get around dating site rules prohibiting posting email addresses). This way, it is searchable in both forms: [email protected]

I am also making the email for Dennis Nieper searchable: [email protected]

I merged these posts since they appear to be related.

We're always very sorry to hear about our members being taken advantage of through our service. We have located happylife7344 in our database and note that the profile has already been flagged and removed. Our team is currently doing an investigation for variations of the same user name and email address you provided. Many of the scammers' names mentioned in this forum have been brought to our attention previously.

Mate1.com is committed to fight fraud and offers its members several avenues for reporting instances of fraud, including 7-day-a-week toll-free phone support (1-888-688-4760, or 514 907-0015 if you are outside North America), round-the-clock email support from our help page - http://www.mate1.com/nw/faq - as well as a live chat support feature available during normal business hours. Many similar sites offer only limited support options, some lacking even a phone number to get in touch with their staff. We’re even open for most holidays, and we post specific holiday hours directly on our Contact Us page when we’re not.

Please note that scammers on Mate1 are usually caught within days of the profile's creation, if not hours, based on their activity alone. However, abuse reports can be an enormous help to our team, as they provide specific details about the profile in question. As you are likely already aware, most of the email addresses provided by scammers when corresponding with other users are NOT the email addresses they used to register on Mate1. We do recommend that users file complaint reports when they encounter a profile that breaches the Terms and Conditions of our site. There is a "File a Complaint" link directly in every chat and email window within Mate1, as well as a "Report a Problem" link on the bottom of every Mate1 profile.

Of course, you are welcome to get in touch with our Customer Support team regarding any issues you are experiencing, or any technical difficulties you have encountered and we'll be happy to try and resolve them with you. That's what we're here for!

For your convenience, here is a direct link to our site’s Help/Contact Us page, which contains most of our contact options.

Hiya, i have read quite a few of these scams on here and think most of them are the same person. Yeah that is the person who has taken me for £300. I have 2 different lots of bank account details from him, a mobile number, 2 different email addreses, 5 pictures (that are not him) and he is about to ring me(obviously withholding his number) what do i do with this information apart from putting it on here? if i took it to the police would there be a department there that could help? if not then he has got away with it again
