The scammer's basic kit; photos of widows and orphans, passports, certificates and court documents, all guaranteed 100% fake or stolen

It's very difficult to be certain just from an email address and the bland Facebook profile, but if he has done one of the following:

  • Asked you for money
  • Asked you to pay for a satellite phone to speak to him
  • Asked you to apply for leave for him
  • Asked you to receive a trunkbox for him

Then yes he is a scammer.

If he hasn't done any of the above then it doesn't mean he is legit, he might just be working up to it.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

I've received many letters of that nature, usually from someone claiming to be a service member. One dolt my age (I'm 57) claimed that he was a Captain of the US Corps of Marines. He supplied me with a photo of his Illinois Drivers License, issued Last Name First Name Middle Name. He said his last name was Middle Name. Had this been true, he would have been at least a Lieutenant Colonel on the short list. If he was just a Captain, he would have been RIFed (Reduction in Force) for failure to advance.

My advice to you, should you receive mail of this nature, is to ask for:

1. His Name and Rank
2. His Serial Number
3. His unit and APO/FPO address.

and claim that you want to use Snail Mail to prevent electronic footprints.

They'll usually claim that this information is classified (it isn't) and you'll never hear from them again.

BTW, I'm a Veteran, so scams like this really P*SS ME OFF!

Hmm, I've seen something like this before Its possible that the pictures and information sent are very real but unlikely that their the ones behind messages. Just recently there was a scam asking for money to help support injured troops and the photo they used was of a deceased officer. The father was rather outrages.
