Two points

A soldier who goes abroad without a cellphone is beyond unlikely. It's clear proof on its own that you're dealing with a scammer. Any soldier stupid enough not to think how he can contact home before he gets abroad isn't smart enough to get in the army.

This excuse it used by scammers for two reasons

1 - so they can scam you for money to buy a cellphone. :lol:

2 - to explain why they aren't able to speak to you by phone, as hearing their voice would immediately alert you to the fact that they are not American. Most scammers barely speak English.

If you have met someone online claiming to be in the US forces and they say they can't speak to you on the phone - they're scammers.

There is animal cunning in making the one thing that would expose them as a scammer the reason for you to send them money, but who believes a soldier abroad can't get phone access ?

Non-EU citizens should go here to find out about obtaining a visa to work as an au pair in the UK
Whenever payment is requested by Western Union you're dealing with a scammer

The writings of this man are the same as my Sgt. James Thiago. Talk about good looking pictures, he was on Zorpia under usm24 if you want to check it out. Very sad. I wonder who the picture really is and if the soldier is alive. I'm pretty much done with dating sites as I keep getting hits with the same type of scammers. Once you have been on this site you can pick them out right away! Thanks for the help!

(Had no intentions of marriage, but just loved the romantic letters)One Thing that got my attention was he used the word" LOVELY"alot, which I felt was odd coming from a man from the south in Georgia! AND, of course,It was little poor Hackneys Birthday,Who eally wanted his future new MUM to buy him new XBOX game! (only needed $1,000.00 for game and assessories)Then I searched the apraisal distict of his home town, where he own home that e wanted me to come to, and found there was no one by that name that owned ANYTHING there...then friend took over, to find out more, as well as this site, Boy did I ever have sick feeling in my stomach!!!! I wounder as well as others, Who is this guy in picture? and is he alive or dead? really sad.....I hope this information Iv turned in to yall helps someone..

Welcome ISEEYOU!
I'm so relieved you are on to this criminal! :=) I can imagine how hurt and disgusted you must be feeling.
As for his "pay cheques": He wanted to involve you into money laundering. If he sends you one, destroy it or bring it to the police, it will be counterfeit.
Your post will help a lot when other victims search for information. Did he use any email addresses we haven't got yet?
And one more thing: Just stop all contact with this criminal. He has some information about you and you don't want him to harass you on the internet when he finds out that you are on to him and gets angry.

his new name [email protected] and he is still using his sons (so called) address to. I'm glad people are finding out about him, he has a new photo as well, but I dont know how to post it. But someone left three updates on the hackneymitchel are a fake. He seems to be good but not good enough. I think I am going to invest in getting everify so that I will feel some peace of mind for anymore.
I hope to continue to post all new accts. with this scammer.

Life is so short and precious and finding that special ONE is a definite challenge !! --I like to dance, kiss, communicate,travel, snuggle,laugh and cook--timing is everything and things happen for a reason _ I like to laugh and I am looking for that special magic (that warm and fuzzy feeling) when you can communicate without even saying a word.. You can never get enough of each other and I would want both of us to be greedy--when it comes to both of us together as well as when we are apart----romance and passion is an absolute must.

I am looking for a woman who wants to be intimate at all levels: emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual (in the context of marriage, of course), which has common interests and wants to share in these interests. She should want to spend much time together and create a strong bond. I prefer someone who is caring, nurturing personality with a strong faith and someone who is light-hearted … and optimistic, but also likes to have deep conversations and reflect on the important things in life. which has similar interests and want to share in these interests that want to spend much time together
