This scammer claims to be the US General Carter Ham, but he has no knowledge of where the real Carter Ham has been stationed.

He uses Skype to approach his victims, with the Skype ID carter_f

And here is one of the emails he sends

What a wonderful beginning to a new year! It began some weeks back -- me finding you, chatting online, confessing my love, Only this time, I am free to act on them without fear of upsetting anyone.

Thank you, XXX. What more can a man say to the woman who opened her heart to him, allowing him to feel the warmth of her love across the great distance that separates them? You truly have no idea what I feel for you.

I try to put this feeling into words, but fail miserably. This feeling of being both scared and at peace, of having both butterflies and a sense of calm, is a feeling that I have only dreamed about. As the days continue to pass, my love for you continues to grow. I never thought I had the capacity to love anybody as much as I love you right now. Yet, my love for you continues to mature, growing beyond the realm of my heart. It seems that you have become the fiber of my soul, the very reason for my existence.

I have no other words to describe the way you make me feel. No words, no actions could even come close. I believe that Ronald Regan said it best to Nancy in a letter, telling her only that, "I more than love you". Their love was a strong love, surviving everything, even death. I believe that even after his passing, Nancy felt Ronald's love for her raining down upon her. That is why she has always seemed at peace after the death of such a truly loving husband. That is the love that I feel for you.

yours forever

Gen.Carter.

I too, have been approached by "general Carter Ham", guess I'm lucky - have already been stung by another operator on another dating site. Am thinking its not hard to spot once you know what to look for. It seems as though scammers either can't spell or don't speak English well.

Hi Everyone
I have just registered here as I had a skype contact just this afternoon from someone saying he was looking for someone and found my id and I had mistakenly added him to my contacts

He claims to be General Carter Ham serving in Afghanistan, I looked him up quickly and asked him his birthday; he said the same date as reported on time but took some time to respond.

I have not been scammed before but I looked up the name on google as it seemed highly unlikely that a US Major would be contacting an average middle aged (44) yr old woman in UK.

I then found this site and thought I'd report the messages, hope it is ok to do that.

[15:57:45] nathalie: hello
[15:57:47] nathalie: smile
[15:57:52] carterham: hi
[15:58:04] nathalie: I was just wondering why you asked me to add you to contacts
[15:58:15] nathalie: I mean like out of the blue
[15:58:34] nathalie: It intrigues me
[15:58:56] carterham: anyway i m was, looking for an old friend of mine when, i saw your contact, i hope dont mind
[15:59:08] nathalie: Is that you in the picture
[15:59:28] carterham: sure
[15:59:29] nathalie: or someone I should recognise,
[15:59:30] nathalie: lol
[15:59:40] nathalie: phewe
[16:00:18] carterham: what about you, dont you have any pictures of yours
[16:01:51] nathalie: I hate pics of me
[16:01:55] carterham: well i m new here on skype
[16:02:00] nathalie: welcome
[16:02:01] carterham: but why?
[16:02:07] nathalie: I'm ugly]
[16:02:17] carterham: really?
[16:02:23] nathalie: yea
[16:02:32] carterham: ahahahahahahahahaha
[16:02:40 | Edited 16:02:42] carterham: i dont think so, my dear
[16:02:42] nathalie: if you sent your em address Id show you
[16:02:46] nathalie: you don't know
[16:02:50] nathalie: you didn't even see
[16:04:13] carterham: anyway i m general carter ham from, united states of american but currently in afghanistan, regards to the ungoing peace, keeping mission, here in kabul i don know if you must have heard about me before
[16:04:26] nathalie: smile
[16:04:52] carterham: tell me what is, your real name?
[16:05:14] nathalie: this is my real name
[16:05:21] nathalie: soo when is your birthday
[16:05:25] carterham: oh i see
[16:06:26] carterham: my birthday is on the 16th of, february
[16:06:31] carterham: what about yours?
[16:06:36] nathalie: ooh so you use google too?
[16:06:41] nathalie: smile
[16:06:46] nathalie: December 16th
[16:07:29] nathalie: sorry I don't mean to be sceptical
[16:08:09] nathalie: but it's kind of unusual for a USA army major to be using skype to speak to a normal average Mrs Doe in UK
[16:08:50] nathalie: hello?
