Hi my name is Liz from Brisbane Australia on the 9th August 2011 I was contacted by one James Edwards via Facebook.
After a few days of corresponding for a few day this way he then asked if I had yahoo messenger and I said yes and he
advied that this would be easier for him as he would be able to have a better conversation this way.
which we did then after of month of talking and getting to know each other he advised that he would like to met me
but I would have to request his leave and gave me all the information to apply for his leave. In the mean time I received
the following email from supposeably from FROM DESK OF LT.COL ROBERT GONZ ; PHASE 2,KABUL COMPOUND
THIS OFFICE WILL LIKE TO NOTIFY YOU THAT THE MILITARY PROTOCOL OFFICE IS
GIVEN THE ACQUISITION TO MONITOR EVERY EMAIL CONTACTS WITH EVERY OF THE
CODE 216 OFFICERS.WE ARE USING THIS MEDIUM TO INFORM YOU THAT EVERY INFORMATION
IS MONITORED.TROOP 109 BSA NATIONAL FOR SENIOR SARGE JAMES EDWARDS IS NOTED.
After I received this email and I believed that it was all above board and that I had indeed found true love. He had it all he spoke of all the
things that I wanted to hear and swept me off my feet. I applied for his leave and I received and email from Optimal Leave and forms to fillin I filled them
in and paid the processing fee requested of USD1650 which IU thought at the time strange, but paid it as this is America not Australia and just because
we donot have a processing fee when requesting leave the US may so I sent the money via Western Union to NAME : SUSANNA RAMIREZ; CITY :WALLA WALLA

be advised when the leave was approved which I did and the below is the email which I received .
