From the same scammer using: [email protected]
Attention,
We receive your request for leave on behalf
of sergeant thomas , we already began the
processing of the leave and we have contacted the
Sergeant about it and has confirmed that he
knows you.
Meanwhile, we will need to make a proper
verification between the both of you to know exactly
if you are truly close and related as you have stated
and the one way to do this is stated below.
Verification of your address is in progress as we will
make an available flight for the soldier to fly him to
the nearest airport close to you after the leave has
been approved.
The ISAF number of the soldier you sent will be validated and if it corresponds with sgt.thomas's, the processing of the leave will commence within the next 24 hours.
However, the leave request will include some paper
works, procurement and Logistic fees to hand the
Sergeant a liberty Pass for him to leave the camp
and fly out to your provided address.
Below are the charges for paper work and logistics
which must be paid before the leave will finally
approve.
Below are the stated charges
Paper Work Fee : 350.00
Flight Logistic fee: 400.50
Procurement Fee: 200.00
Total 950.50 USD
And you can get the payment done on Installment, Meanwhile the leave is in process and been verified
so we request you to make the payment of the above
name fee in care of The US.Army to his division agent in charge of so he can get it to the department who is
presently out for conference in NIGERIA
Therefore payment can be made via,Bank Transfer,
Flit Cash,Money Gram,Western Union Money
Transfer. Due to poor economic issues the payment
should be made via Moneygram Money Transfer
which is the best and safest way to make the payment
due to your location and the division's agent
Location as we could not establish a direct link for
transfer with the banks available so preferable
Western Union is the best required.
Therefore payment of the above stated fee are to be
sent to the division's agent who will get it across to the department
and to the Logistics officer who will handle the flight and logistic of the Soldier, after
you have sent the fee reply this email with the
transfer information as stated below.
C/O
Maj. Gen.Paul LaCamera
Fort Carson, CO 81240, United States

Note: Please After payment you are to scan the copy
of the receipt and send us a copy of the file or reply
this email with the following information.

Hey madam
Thank you very much for your co-operation as this as helped us complete the verification. Therefore you can proceed to make the payments to his division agent who is currently away to nigeria for the #bringbackourgirls mission,the info for the payment will be sent to sgt. Thomas, so you get it from him when you're ready to make the payments, you can do this transaction online as your situation not to send in cash at the store is really understandable, we have contacted western union and they said you can use your debit card to pay online and that's more safe. The agent will pick it up at the destination and would send to the department, so the leave can be approved for sgt. Thomas
Yours in service
C/O
Maj. Gen.Paul LaCamera

This person contacted me on meetme.com looking for the love of his life, etc and I knew from the start something was off about him. I proceeded to add him to messenger and talked with him and he sent pictures of the man in all of the photos on this page.The day after he added me on messenger his account on meet me was gone which rose serious suspicion his reply was, I was the the woman he was looking for so he doesn't need a page there anymore..lol His English was very off, he claimed to be 40 yrs old, stationed in Lybia with the US Army and said he was from Ohio yet raised in Paris where he stated his mother lives and keeps his 5 year old daughter. He claims to have a home in New Mexico in which he wants to love of his life to live with him. He had ask for a care package of food and then proceeded to ask to include t-shirts,shoes, an iPhone and PSP!! So once he got my reply on those request, I haven't heard from him since, he knows I was onto him.He is claiming to be Michael John Bistrow and the email is [email protected]. He is using the photos of a real military man in KY and even has went as far as sending the photo ID which is obviously fake and is altered with the name Michael John Bistrow. When he chats with you he is very fond of using baby, honey, sweetheart and even throws out how bad he misses you and even I love you. He even goes as far as stating he will retire from the military to be with "me" This person is nutts and this needs to stop. Anyone who talks to people online should remember this about men/women claiming to be in the military.

Soldiers and their loved ones are not charged money so that the Soldier can go on leave.
Soldiers are not charged money for secure communications or leave.
Soldiers do not need permission to get married.
Soldiers do not have to pay for early retirement.
Soldiers have medical insurance, which pays for their medical costs when treated at civilian health care facilities worldwide – family and friends do not need to pay their medical expenses.
Military aircraft are not used to transport Privately Owned Vehicles.
Army financial offices are not used to help Soldiers buy or sell items of any kind.
Soldiers deployed to Combat Zones do not need to solicit money from the public to feed or house their troops.
Deployed Soldiers do not find large unclaimed sums of money and need your help to get that money out of the country.
Anyone who tells you one of the above-listed conditions/circumstances is true is likely posing as a Soldier and trying to steal money from you.

THIS PERSON NEEDS TO BE STOPPED!!! BEWARE OF BISTROW!!!

My name is <removed to protect privacy> Mike W. I live in Colorado. I had not been dating for a while. In fact I am a single mother of 2 beautiful children. I have a lot of respect for the Military. I appreciate what they have done for us. How ever........ My friend was trying to get me a date or find someone for me. My friends hooked up a account for me on meet me.com. I had went on to check out the site to see if I could close that account because I do not believe in dating sites as is. But I had seen some interesting things on the site so I checked it out before closing it down. March 20th 2014. a Michael Jack Bistrow had sent me a request as well as a message. He had played the Soldier from Lybia who was deployed and wanted to get out of military. He was a Sergeant MP. He Fed me the same exact story that he has done upon every woman he has came a cross. I fell hard for him. He had me sending him money. Also he had me picking up money from western union and money gram from multiple women who I had been informed were military wives that help one another. But I was told once I received the money I had to money gram every last bit of what I got to Lybia to a Ebenezer who will pick it up to take to their husbands. I had a recruiter tell me that it was all a scam so I checked into it and brought out the situation. I have reciently heard once again heard from this Michael Jack Bistrow. He sent me a video trying to prove that he is real. I am trying to figure out what I can do over this whole ordeal because I have lost a lot putting trust in this scam artist. $20,000 is a lot of money and I could have done something other then blowing on a scammer.

@Kisha
sorry to hear that you got scammed so badly
I'm afraid, you'll never again see a dime of the money you sent this jerk

the only thing you can do is ignore the scammer and try to move on with your life

BTW, no US military personnel in Libya
I don't know how your scammer looked like on meetme
I met somebody by the name Jack Bistrow on BP
claimed to be 41, lived in Peru, IN
