Hello, I met this scammer in Lavalife and I don't have his handle anymore. It was like Peace something. His IP is from Ghana, claiming to be in Irak. His email is [email protected]. On the 2nd email he started talking to me about a cocoa business and asked me if I wanted to work with him. These people are disgusting, it's all I can say


Uploaded with

I don't know if I should include his emails or what other information should I post to avoid this person from
taking advantage of other people.

And this one I just received, he even sent me pictures of his daughter who does not look a bit like him. I don't know if I should post them here too. The so called daughter looks between 15 and 18.

Hello babe,thanks for the mail once again,well,let me tell you something small about the cocoa business..Cocoa serves as an important crop around the world: a cash crop for growing countries and a key import for processing and consuming countries. Cocoa travels along a global supply chain crossing countries and continents. The complex production process involves numerous parties including, among others, farmers, buyers, shipping organizations, processors,chocolatiers, and distributers. Cultivation of cocoa at the farm level is a delicate process as crops are susceptible to various conditions including weather patterns, diseases, and insects.Unlike larger industrialized agribusinesses, the vast majority of cocoa still comes from family-run small farms who are often confronted with outdated farming practices and limited organizational leverage. With a steady demand from worldwide consumers, there are numerous efforts and funds committed globally to support and improve cocoa farm sustainability.

In terms of global scale of crop production, cocoa ranks among other key bean and nut commodities and has grown by nearly 7% since 2004. Cocoa is traded on two world exchanges in two currencies: London (LIFFE - Pound) and New York (ICE - USD).

Numerous cocoa market experts and analysts provide reports based on historical, current,and projected levels. Cocoa bean production is closely monitored as trade balances,pricing, and futures contracts depend largely on supply side factors.As depicted below, total production has slightly increased in absolute terms from 3.42 million tonnes in 2004-2005 to projected 3.53 million tonnes in 2009-2010. Change in production has not been linear, however, and has fluctuated in various patterns among the different regions. Africa has been and is projected to remain the principal cocoa producer with 70% market share.

Looking ahead, ICCO (International Cocoa Organization, representing a majority of world cocoa production and consumption groups) projects cocoa production growth in each region over the next five years – with the highest concentration of growth estimated in
Ghana, Dominican Republic, and Malaysia, respectively.

i love this work and my partner are about to move down to Ghana to buy tonnes of cocoa beans anytime from partner is having a lil problem with his family and that why he is delaying,as soon as he solve the problem.he will move done even if am not yet complete from partner is very hard working and i like him so much,i love this work as well.its brings much money.i will end here and wait for your reply.take care and hope to hear from you soon.i hope you gonna love it.i have also send pics of my daughter.i will send you more in my next reply.take care for me.

Kisses and hugs
Your George

Well done, notaginscam, it was wise to protect the girl's identity.

There is a way to exclude her face being on the internet and yet posting the picture; each operating system comes with a picture editing programme, for instance MS Paint. If you paint over the face, you can upload the picture.

Thank you for your contribution!

P.S. Being in the cocoa business is a claim scammers have been using for decades, it's a lie as old as Methuselah. :laugh-s:

I was talking to a Mark Moose...but he didnt say anything about Cocoa Coca Business...he said he was part of the Rebuilding Team in Iraq...hmmmm and I have pictures of the same guy with different poses...could someone get back to me please...I would like to add to this information with pictures so that you could verify and also would like help with the IP addresses to identify...I need some help with that. I just want to make sure that I do it right...I tried it and I dont think Im getting the right response. Thank you

There are instructions for posting photos in my signature line. If you are saying you are uncertain whether he is a scammer, please post the first couple of messages he sent you, though I can tall you that it is almost a certainty you are dealing with a scammer simply based on the photos, the name Moose, and the supposed Iraq location.

Need to post photos?

These are also photo's of scammer using George Moose, who claimed he was in Iraq.
The picture someone posted where he is sitting on a rock in forest, is on a social site called SONICO - I had to join to be able to message him, and then wrote there asking if this is the real George Moose, but got no reply. Then after 3 months, got a message from him through Sonico saying ' you looking beautiful my friend'. Then I saw some messages sent a month earlier which was never relayed to me - saying he is the real G Moose and we should get to bottom of this - I should not pay money etc. I posted a reply and he answered immediately and said he does not know what i am talking about etc etc. When I tried to log into Sonico again - my password did not work anymore, so asked for a resend of password - nothing. To reset p word also nothing. I think he control this site - just a feeling I have - is a weird site. He has 1 friend only - also weird.
Sorry do not have his email and other info ay longer.

I just wanted to let you know. I am in touch with the real SGT. Moose and his name is not George. I will not reveal his real name for privacy reasons but I have verified him as a real solider and his commander is working with the army to get his stolen identity and pictures straightened out. We are meeting soon as we are in love with each other. Been corresponding for quite sometime by u.s. mail, webcam on occasion as he is extremely busy and by phone. I have seen his pictures and I have skyped with him a couple of times. He is due to retire at the end of this month. But he is the real deal. So he is actively working on getting all of his information removed and blocked from these sites but it will take time. I just saw more recent pictures he sent me yesterday of him in active duty. Everything adds up. I have called the U.S. army and other places to verify as I am very smart with these types of things. I have never sent him any money. He has said sweet things to me but little by little, but he has never sent me any gifts or asked for money. Some of his lines did match what the traits are for a scammer so originally I did have red flags go up immediately in my mind. But after checking out the truth and know he is ligitimate and single I think it will work out for us. I feel sorry for all the rest of the women I was reading about in their experiences who were talking to whoever it was that was pretending to be Sgt. Moose, but in their cases they must have been talking to a scammer. It makes me disgusted how these people are so cruel and malicious and have no feelings what so ever. They are all about greed and survival with no morals. Anyways, not every single man on dating sites is a scammer. Just make sure you always get their phone number or skype with them or see them on web cam etc. If they are willing to share little by little then they probably are on the up and up. Lastly, remember gals men like to be the chaser and they do not like revealing all their private information at once. So be patient. As long as they do within the first few months that I feel that is a good sign. Plus if they are true to their word they are probably being just as cautious as you are by taking things slow.
Wish you all the best.

Welcome to ScamWarners jhart2035.

Sadly, your story sounds too good to be true and I am concerned that you have hooked up with another scammer. Will you please post up the headers to the email messages you have received please. If you don't want to do it on the open forum, please send me the information by PM.

Scammers are very practiced at seeming to be legitimate. The military can't do any more to get photos pulled down than anyone else. It would be a waste of their time to do that. The most they can do is warn their personnel to be very careful where they post their photos and who they send photos to.

I hope you will let us help you do some more checking for you.

Bubbles, former Scamwarners moderator.

Rest in Peace 24 June 2015.

Gone, but never forgotten.

It may be of interest to you all that a friend of mine in the UK (a female) was 'approached' on line, by "George Moose". Anyway, she asked me about him, as I had been in the British Army and worked in the intelligence cell. Obviously I know a bit about procedures and such like.
Anyway, I sent him a couple of messages, pretending I was her, and within minutes he'd given himself away because his replies were all wrong. I worked out fairly quickly he was a scammer.
Anyway, because we wanted to find out what we could, this has been going on for months, and she has been stringing him along.
it may or may not be of interest to someone out there that we now have his phone number, his real name, his email address and several photographs of the man behind the name. Yes he does live in ghana. We even sent him a birthday card to verify his address, and he said he'd got it! So we KNOW this stuff is real! If anyone would like me to share this stuff, then get in touch and I'm happy to pass it over.

Sgt George Moose is now operating under the name of Capt Gary Moose (on antiterror and hostage rescue mission in Kabul) but the man on the pictures is exactly the same. I got suspicious when he asked me to send in a request for his leave from his mission in Kabul. In the US Army as in most other military and civilian organisations, you request your leave yourself. On the US Armed Forces net site, I found an article warning against scam romances that suited so perfectly to charming capt Moose's behaviour. I asked him to proove he was a real us soldier by continuing the mailing and chatting from a genuine us military mail address. Not heard from him since. May 2012. He operated on a dating site in a European not-English speaking country, using Google translator. I warned the dating site immediately.

That sounds about right. In actual fact, they run their operation from Ghana, and are a structured organisation. They undergo training so that they can spot potential 'victims'. It appears that their operation is plausible until someone with even a little military knowledge questions them. THey then either log off or plead innocence and ask why you dont believe them.

One of the operators behind this George Moose thing, is a a guy named Egan. Dont know how useful that will be to anyone.
