The Usa.com address if a free email provider like Yahoo, Gmail and Hotmail. The US Military would never use a free email address. Also a Military Member will use a Military email address and not a free email address also.

People, family nor friends need to pay for Soldiers/ Military personnel to go on leave, talk on the phone or use the computer.

The Military provides everything a Soldier needs. Soldiers do not have the time to chat online while deployed. The little time they have is used to communicate with family.

Everything said by the person you are in contact with is a lie. The Fake Commanding Officer at USA.com is also the same scammer. He is playing all roles. Its just another email account he has.

Do not confront the scammer. He will never admit it. He will only keep lying to you. The best thing to do is block him from your email address and/or ignore his text or phone calls.

Please keep in mind, now that he has your email address. He may contact you with a different name and email address.

Never send money via Western Union, Money Gram or Bank Transfer to anyone you met over the internet.

Please contacta moferatorstor if you have a question or information about this post.



Please do not tell the scammer he is posted here.

Hi fakeid, please pay attention to what Bryon has told you. These scammers are all over the dating sites right now and this is one of their favorite ploys. Make sure you have stopped contact and don't buy into what you are being told. These are scammers of the lowest order, preying on our desire to make sure our troops are well taken care of and our love of a hero. If you have had a longer time with this scammer and find it hard to let go and understand what is happening, I know how you feel. While my scammer was not this type, I got wrapped up in his story and had a hard time when I finally saw the truth. Please be safe, let go of this liar, and find someone real who will appreciate you.

Fakeid,

This is the same guy that tried to scam me. Same name & email address. Do not listen to anything he says. It is all a lie. I almost fell for it until I talked to a family member in the military. No one in the military ever has to pay for leave. He even tried to email me under a new email address saying his has been hacked.

Jdj73, thanks for coming here to reinforce your story. I am glad you had wise people in your family to advise you. The military scammers like to use the tale of having to pay to leave, as you have seen, and many have been fooled into thinking that must be so. Looks to me like you spent some time with your scammer before that request happened. I'm sure you are a much better informed online dater now. Please be careful if you continue on online dating sites. Some scammers like this one make themselves obvious, others can catch you unaware.

Pictures of this same guy are being used on the dating site OkCupid and the username that is being used is simplesoldierman. I just ran across this a few minutes ago when I was looking on that site.

Now he is using the Yahoo email [email protected] and he is on OKCupid with the user name DreamLover2226. I started questioning him when he first told me his name was Jason and then when he asked me to contact his CO to get him leave he told me his name was Jack Romney. First, I have never heard of family members that request leave for someone, especially since the address he told me to email it to was [email protected] and I know that is not a military address. I have no idea if he knows that I am on to him, but we will see when he contacts me later. People like that make me sick.

He told me his mom died of cancer, his wife died in a car accident 4 years ago, his dad is 74 and in bad health and he has two sisters that he is not close with. Luckily I did not tell him much personal information, just generic info that I would tell the person sitting next to me on the bus.
