I was recentley contacted by Staff Sergeant James Ramos who told me he was stationed in Bagdad. He got my info on Datehookup, where I went and read his. This is key, On his profile he wrote he was 44 but when we chatted he said he was 41. On his profile he said he was native american, but i noticed his english was choppy so I asked him where he was from and he said Romania. He then told me he was born and raised in Miami. O.k next conversation he asked me how work was darling, I'm unemployed and had told him previousley. He seemed distracted like he was talking to someone else. Next conversation came the you are beautiful and sweet and my soul mate. we are talking 3 very brief conversations. again he asked about work and again I replied unemployed. within seconds the screen went blank. he had signed off. I googled him and found you and his info, I then IM d him and told him what I found ....havent heard from him since. Pay attention to those little itty bitty flags, and do your homework. Chances are if somthing doesnt feel quite right its not.
I'm glad you were able to detect this scammer relatively quickly. However, we do ask that you not alert scammers to what they do wrong, or direct them to their postings here or on any other scam site. When you do that, you actually improve their odds of successfully scamming the next victim--they will correct their mistakes so they are less obvious, and if they change their name and/or email because they know they are listed, the new name won't be listed, and the next victim will not find their new identity in a search.
