Malfada you need to remove your email address from your first post. I expect admins wil also suggest you use a profile name that is different from your email prefix.

Thank you ladies for posting the pictures, for other to be aware.

I just wonder if the real soldier knows about this scam and his stolen pictures. I have other pictures he sent me, like pictures of his car, his house and his son, and other personal pictures. how can i get these online. if i can send them to some one to post as fake, please let me know i will do so. I want his scammer made 100 percent
available to the public.

I have personal pictures, military pictures and wounded pictures of this same soldier, and it is the same person because of the hands. How on earth does a scammer acquire all these photos of one person??

Often the scammer will find a social networking page (for example a facebook page), or even an album from a photo sharing site such as photobucket, that the real person has not made private, and he will simply download and save every photo the person has posted, so even if the real person makes the page/album private later, he can continue to use them.

Often stolen pictures have a complicated serial number like 801c06gUftN.jpg if they are stolen from a website. I have tried ways to unravel such codes but it probably needs a database of these to be able to do this to any extent and find the source.
Also pictures will often have a "name".jpg that seems to have no connection with a sender. Real pictures will have a far more normal name like " DSC0132.JPG" direct from camera, and if you right click the picture you will see the properties of when taken and what with, and nothing if stolen. That is not set in stone because details can get removed or hidden.
One would ask when this so called soldier was wounded. Strange how often scammers manage to be on internet with broken computers, immediately after going on patrol, after being robbed, stranded with no money, in hospital etc. Most often all the information to identify a lie is there.

let me tell you more about me, am a widow. i lost my wife 6year ago, and two year ago i have been searching a someone i can love that can make me feel again love, and also my kid need someone that will take good care of him, but i have not find the serious one, all i got is player that want to play my heart, but i don't let this hold me down i still try more cos i believe someone is out there waiting for me to come, but i don't know the person can be that is why i want to try again.

i look for honesty, caring, understand, believe, love, i mean everything that make a woman, that is what i look for in a woman, and i don't mind to get married again if she really love me just the way i love here, but if you don't mind i will like you to give me a try and let see if things workout for us then we don't have to search no more.

some question for you

This is the very first message I rece'd from the scammer. Please pay attention to the text of him being a widow and raising a son by himself. He may use the same text over to another victim.
