Hi, I recently met a guy claiming to be in Nigeria- Africa 2014 batch for peacekeeping. Recently he asked me to do a phone request for him and he gave me the following email... helpcenter_specialtroopforce&outlook.com. I emailed them and it said it would cost $400 for them to provide a phone and that the phone would only be able to call me and no other number. The name I'm supposed to send it under is Godswill Lyere. This has to be a scam right. Please help
Yes, it's a scam. He is not a soldier, he is not on a peacekeeping mission. He is not American, or British, or from anywhere else in North America or Europe. There are no American forces acting as peacekeepers in Nigeria.
The only thing that is true is that he is in Nigeria. He is a Nigerian, and he is sitting at a computer trying to scam women with stolen photos of real soldiers that he has never met.
Please post some of the emails this low-life criminal sent to you, and any email addresses he has used.
A few points for future reference:
-Soldiers stationed in areas of conflict are NOT active on dating sites. They are not starting relationships with women they meet online. They have much bigger concerns on their minds. Their time to communicate is limited, and they spend it communicating with their friends and family back home.
-You will NEVER have to pay for a soldier to be able to communicate with you.
-You will NEVER be involved in a soldier's leave request.
-You (and the soldier) do NOT pay for leave. It is like a paid vacation. There is NO charge.
-Soldiers CAN access their money.
