FIRST: SOME ADVICE YOU MAY NEED

Scampolice Group warns you:

If you see texts we publish on the site, or parts of them in messages, then you are dealing with a scammer, probably from West Africa or Malaysia, but may be from other countries as well. Scammers use cut and pasted text because they are usually almost illiterate, uneducated, and have little English, or because it is easier to do it when dealing with hundreds of potential victims a day. Note: scammers hardly ever address you by name and this is because it makes it unnecessary to edit messages with names in them. They will call you “Honey”, “Baby”, “my Queen”, “Angel”, etc.
Never tell a scammer how you caught him*. Never tell him about his message text and never correct his mistakes. We like our scammers to continue to be uneducated and stupid. Remember when a message suggests you send money, you are talking to a scammer and whatever the excuse he gives you, send nothing and leave without a word.
*Even if you think you are dealing with a woman be assured it is a boy in an internet cafe.  
Be careful with the people, who suddenly contact you on SKYPE/MSN/Yahoo messenger. There are NO SOLDIERS, GENERALS, SERGEANTS or OFFICERS, using messengers who will offer you romance, especially if they claim to be in Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Syria,West Africa, Pakistan  etc.
The FBI, Interpol,  Banks, and United Nations do not have funds to send you, and neither are the heads of these organisations writing to tell you they  do. If you ever see countries in Africa, or Malaysia,  and Turkey mentioned, then  you need to depart rapidly
DIPLOMATS only work for Governments.  They do not act as private couriers for anyone,including YOU.  If you  see Diplomats mentioned at all it is a scam. Those parcel deliveries and  flashy courier forms are  fake too.
BARRISTERS work in Courts and are never writing to you about Inheritances and all that sort of stuff , and if you see  large amounts of money mentioned at any time then be 100% sure it’s a scam.  Here are some links to search.  http://www.nigerianbar.org.ng/ http://www.ghanabar.org/members-in-good-standing-2/   Just because the name is correct don’t assume the person is real.
ENGINEERS, OIL AND GAS WORKERS,  GOLD AND GEMSTONE DEALERS, SAILORS, DOCTORS ON SHIPS and similar persons are also FAKE.
Take notice: 
SOLDIERS NEVER PAY FOR LEAVE.
Leave requests are fake.
SOLDIERS NEVER NEED TO PAY FOR MEDICAL TREATMENT FOR THEMSELVES OR THEIR FAMILY.
ID Cards and forms  supposedly sent  by military personnel, either online or by email, are FAKE.  It is against military law for a person to make a  copy of their official identity documents.  They would be court martialed.
US military OLD email format is …..
Anything else is a scam.
Government Departments DO NOT USE WESTERN UNION/MoneyGram, or similar transfers.
A little bit more
Scammers will often use an interactive video based on webcam chats with previous victims or stolen off porn model websites etc. This video will be able to show the scammer doing obvious actions if they are asked. Most often the scammer will know the video well and so at the right moment be able to tell victim something such as “Hang on the phone rang” and he will then be seen leaving to answer the phone. Often the videos are fairly repetitive and loop back, and of course the scammer won’t be able to show himself doing things a victim might ask him to do (wave his hand, give a wink etc…) They also have another way by claiming the microphone doesn’t work which means you can only type and watch, and should they think you ask too much they will switch it off after a few seconds.
Beware of so called webcam that does not look like the person they claim to be and be aware that seeing somthing over a supposed webcam is not proof any more than stolen pictures are.
In African and some other countries you can get money transferred with having only the MTCN number. Name and address doesn’t matter, for example: if the money was sent to “Mr. Bryan Daniel” to UK, the money can be given to any person in Nigeria/Ghana/ Senegal who has the MTCN for the transfer …
Another variant: the money launderer lives in a foreign country, banks the money, extracts a percentage and sends the balance on to the scammer.

  1. I was scammed out of $2800.00 back in August. By a so called man named Dr. DESTINY GILBERT. Who supposedly was a bone doctor working for the United in Yemen. I didn’t know better at the time. Type in Google search for UN Doctors and read down to Nigerian scams. Everything I read was every word said to me by the scammer. Read these posts from other individuals who have experienced the same thing I did. I realized now that man on Facebook who friended me had his identity stolen. Please people. Educate yourself on scammers. These people are criminals. All I can say. Is educate yourself on scammers. I sure have now. and it is a lessons learned They tug at your heart and wallets

    1. I have edited your comment to one post and you are exactly right. I am sorry you lost money. I am sure you have read our guidances and some of our posts and this is why we do it. People can see the scam, and read about it, and associate that experience with their own. While the story changes, it really doesn’t and involves sending large amounts of money. If nobody sent money all the scams would stop.

  2. Found out I was scammed too just last week. I did not send money but he requested me on Facebook and then I started talking to him naturally and then definitely got dragged into the sob story. I just read the article about calling him out on his mistakes but I panicked and did, I hope that I didn’t mess anything up but I’ll leave you with his Fake name, it’s Gibson Morgan. Found out he was using Mike Callaghers pics and pretending to be him. I blocked him on hangouts and Facebook. Let me know if you need any more info. Thanks.

  3. Have been talking to someone saying they are currently on a 2 year deployment for peace keeping mission. I ask about location and he said Nigeria, Africa.

  4. I met someone on a dating website and he added me to Skype and Viper. He said he is in Ghana working on peacekeeping mission and on contract and cannot leave and told me to email this address to find out vacation fees.
    [email protected]
    However he sent me pics, he is a widow and his daughter is in a boarding school. The address replied to me with “fees” for processing a vacation with a name. Does this even exist or is this a scams?

  5. I believe I have stumbled upon the world’s biggest scam dating site. I have not been scammed but have saved lots of photos and information that they’ve given me. It only took me three days to figure out something wasn’t right so I started taking notes. There are so many military men and women most with more than one profile. All are widowed, 99% of all the men have a son between the ages of 12 – 16. 1% will have a daughter usually a little younger. They ask for iTunes cards, visa cash cards and they want you to take a photo of the card and send it in a message. So they don’t have to give you a address. Also tell you they broke their phone so if you could send enough money on the card to buy another one that would be great. Then there’s the food. Our army doesn’t feed them. And they can’t access their bank accounts.

    Is there an updated list of where the peacekeeping missions are all the time?
    There is one man on the site I want to know about. But there’s no need in asking…lol.. As I was typing this out… I got my answer. He is a scammer.
    If you are interested in the pictures I have. Or the information.. Just let me know. I’ll share. Everyone be safe…

  6. Had a friend request on facebook by a guy named Micheal Sottile, from Wisconsin but lives in Florida, had to go to Turkey because he is a corrosion engineer, at first asked for a $100. Itunes card for his daughter, after getting to Turkey asked if I could help him with $30,000 then $12,000, then $5,000 with the promise to pay it back as soon as he gets back to the states when we meet. He also sent airline flight information on when he is leaving Turkey and coming to CA to meet me, the love of his life, right ;). He is even supposedly having his 15yr old daughter emailing me Hwanting me to be her mom. Of course telling me everything I want to hear. He gave me his cell phone number supposedly, but when he was called it comes up blocked. Anyway any help would greatly be appreciated.

  13. Hello I’m trying to get info on someone named Morris Ronie who says he is in Syria for peacekeeping. He says he is a staff sgt. Says he is stationed at fort campbell ky. And will be back in 6 months. Says he was awarded gold and jewels from Syrian officials for his efforts in syria. He wants me to receive this treasure in a lockbox by securing it on a jet and wants me to hold it for him until he gets back because he can’t carry it while he is there and is afraid it could be stolen. I tried googling his picture and did not find anything. Please give any information you can. Thank you.

    1. Please read our post about peacekeeping because there is none in Syria . There is no gold available in Syria and no US soldiers are in Syria .There is no box and it is nosense to suppose anyone would give such an item to a stranger anyway. This is a ridiclulous scammer story

  19. Whenever I get a friend request on Facebook from a military man… Or a man who is working “off shore” or on oil rigs…I always submit a report to Facebook and block and hide them. They usually have two men’s first names as a first and last name… And have no friends or pictures.. And most of the time, an empty profile, altogether. When Facebook replies in follow up, they many times say that the person is not violating Facebook standards. I have googled their profile pics, and have many times included in my Facebook complaint, the website that shows the exact same picture of the guy, blatantly saying he is, in all sense of the word, a scammer. Why won’t Facebook take a more proactive approach, when responsible people take the time to alert them? This is VERY frustrating!

    Reply

    1. Well that’s how you can tell for the most part. Fakebook is the pits as far as allowing these profiles in the first place, but then if they did not their figures would alarm the shareholders and render the company worthless. Fraud pays and all we can do is warn people. We know we can’t remove the problem but we hope we make a miniscule difference. Now we have almost 7 million views across the board so maybe we do.

Save his picture and then Google his picture in the Google Image Search. He is all over the world!! He has many email addresses too! [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected] He spells his name in different ways too such as Antoni Krizanac, Anto Krizanac, Ante Krizanac.

      We can’t stop them finding themselves even if we block all IP numbers, and country block, as that will make it harder for victims to see the information. We must balance exposure with safety. We can do some looking around and see if we have enough for our halls of fame.

This moment will pass and I know I will get over it with time. I thank you for everything XXXX, May God bless you more and make you happy.


          2. Let me assure you that this is a scammer. We have checked many profiles and found this listed on antifraud sites using several photos and it is everywhere. The reality is that you had a money ask and sent it using a transfer service. That only means a scam. You don’t tell us what the money was supposed to be for. It is easy for a scammer to fake webcam using video. Surprise surprise it breaks! This scammer has written that long text to try to con you again.

He said that he works for UN and now he was sent on assignment to Syria. He called me tonight from area code 963, which is a Syrian area code. He said it was a pay phone. The number is: 963-933-555.
    He is polite and very nice. His accent is not really N. American and when I asked him about it he said that his mother was British and his father American and he himself traveled a lot.

    1. Sorry for delays in replying to messages. We took a month out. Hardly surprising for us, since we work 365 days a year and families do need to come first sometimes. He will ask for money and almost all doctors in Syria are dead or unable to function . He is a total scammer talking rubbish of course.

Attended the University of Texas in Austin.The photo is of a very nice gentleman, but I highly doubt that is really him. His english is very bad and his train of thought got off track as far as what he was writing, it didn’t make sense. This was in a limited conversation I had with him. I really don’t think he is American and English is not his first language. I am going to block him so he cannot contact me. However, you may want to Police Google+.

    1. Google+ is riddled with scammers and we can do very little. However you have hit all the right buttons that reveal a scammer.

  27. I met a man on badoo.com. he says his name is Benson Kent Brown. A Four star General, in Kabul,Afghanistan. Says he has served 30 yrs. Retiring now. Lives in New York City, with a 13yr. Old son. Wife died 8 yrs ago in car crash. Said he was only child and parents died in 2001. Says he inherited a lrg. Flat in NYC and a pineapple farm in Ghana. He is 57, 6′ wt. 185. Approx. Hazel eyes, brown hair. YES I have sent money to the caretaker in Ghana. Then he had some people deposit a check in my account, my bank said was good, then I sent more to Ghana. Then the next day bank tells me , check was not good. I just need some answers, I’ve been searching all these types of websites and have not found my answers. Please help me. Lana

    1. It can take 3 months to clear a cheque. He is a scammer from Ghana. You need to stop sending money and accept nothing from these people. You have technically, laundered money, so the bank needs to know from you ASP to cover yourself because it is a criminal offence to do so. You won’t be blamed however.

  28. I am a victim of this us army scam as well.

    The story is very similar to many comments here. Though I have never been on any of those dating sites, this guy contacted me via Google+ and we’ve been chatting on Hangouts, never by email or phone. This was going on for more than 2 months

    Goes by the name David Steinbach, US army, deployed on an UN peacekeeping mission in Somalia. A 52 yrs old widower, wife died in a car crash few years ago, 1 son 17 yr old.
    Managed to secure 850,000 euros in cash through an UN diplomat who would transit in Greece who needed to obtain Clearance Certificate at the Airport and I was asked to send him 2.300 euros. Yeah sure!

    I haven’t lost any money but being hurt of course.
    Now I’ve made a bit of research and found out, according the name and picture, that this person is real and has a Profile on LinkedIn. Because of the picture’s background, taken in Germany, it’s very specific and I can clearly see it was copied from there.
    Have sent him an internal message to alert him of the scam but many people do not check their LindedIn accounts so not sure if he will see it any time soon.

    My question is, is there anything more to do to warn the real person?

    1. It’s not a good ides to contact real people. They probably know. Imagine getting thousands of mails off scam victims who did the same as you and not all well disposed with good motives. I see the Linked in profile and I have little doubt it’s fake too- Young America is a favourite for scammers. The photo is attached to several other names too.

  30. for 4 months I was scammed by a guy named David Murah on Facebook who claimed he was a soldier stationed in afghanistan on a peacekeeping mission
    He fell in love with me within the first 10 minutes of speaking to me, said he was divorced after he got his wife with another man, claims he has a 10 year old son who is currently staying with his mother while he is overseas. Wanted me to send him a new phone and $500 for a fiance paper, he became really pushy about it until I broke off communication with him, he contacted me again and wanted money for food saying he was starving while all the while I was doing an IP search on him through his email and found out that my soldier boy was actually in California…I immediately blocked him and haven’t heard from him since that day

    1. If he used Yahoo as like as not you picked up the IP of Yahoo, Sunnyvale . I doubt if he was in California. He says peacekeeping which is the major red flag and shows he is from West Africa . I have this scammer profile tke in Iraq. He is 100% scammer. I have this link https://www.facebook.com/david.murah.94 Scammer

  31. I wish u would quit telling women that scammers are not real soldiers. I could tell u a story about a sergeant a colonel and a colonels wife. Not only am I involved But another lady that got at least the sergeant turned into the DOD and Sgt Micheal Latham is moving on to his next victim. And he is stationed in Pakistan . so pls I think half of these scammers are American soldiers . the have caught them in other countries and some are in Jail one in prison and yep American soldiers. U have women conveinced that no soldiers would do this but I can prove u wrong and the other woman will talk to. Ty

    Reply

    1. We will not quit telling women these fake soldiers are scammers. Micheal Latham is a scammer possibly in Africa or Malaysia and if he is in Pakistan then he may be an Al Quaeda/Taliban terrorist. Scammers often mis-spell the Christian name Michael. There are no US Soldiers in Pakistan. US soldiers are not scamming women. If on active duty they hardly have time to phone home, and they have full access to similar resources that you may have at home, access to money, credit cards, shops etc. THEY ARE NOT CHASING AROUND AFTER WOMEN ON LINE,THEY DON’T HAVE THE TIME. Please read our information pages. I am afraid you are totally misled by scammers and you are a victim. Such claims, stolen identities and photos make soldiers into victims as well.
      https://www.facebook.com/micheal.latham.50 is a scammer. He has made a basic mistake and got the rank on the photo wrong. He states he is a Sergeant. I see no Sergeant there.
      I don’t know who told you anyone is in Prison but as far as I know this looks like another scammer promising you he can get money back as a result. This is a recovery scam

      And please rest assured that no REAL military man is going to be contacting an ABSOLUTE STRANGER on a social media site. They are contacting their family and friends when they are deployed and have time to get on the internet, not strangers.

        1. Thanks guys, glad to help in any way I can! I wish these women would stop living in dream land; thinking that Mr Right is in cyberspace and contacting them by chance. It’s not chance, it’s fishing for victims! Throw out enough bait and a fish somewhere will bite! They play on your heartstrings and generous nature. STOP SENDING MONEY TO PEOPLE YOU HAVE NEVER MET IN PERSON! Hold on to your heart! These liars don’t deserve your heart!! Stay safe people!

    1. He is scammer. He would not be telling you a thing about his location or job. His work and where he does it is secret. Most US Forces have left side from from trainers. If he was in Afghanistan he would not be on line hunting women. Soldiers who did that would be a laughing stock if any of their mates found out

  36. I’ve been facing the same experience, actually I still talking to that person. He seems very decent, genuine, polite, lovable, caring etc etc and he said he’s going to apply leave and coming to my country just for seeing me, I just wondered. My attitude was like 50/50 to him as I’m new on these dating sites and his over caring I felt something weird. Finally he asked me to pay his flight fare, so I just Googled and thank God I found this site. But my only worry is, I gave him my mobile number and 3-4 pictures. What should I do now? Is there any problem? Please someone give me a suggestion.
    Thank you.

    Reply

    1. As you know he is a scammer, they always fall in love too fast. Soldiers never pay for leave or flights and this is a money ask so it only means a scam. As far as the photos and number is concerned he probably isn’t interested and once he knows he won’t get money he will move on to the next victim. Tell him nothing about what you know and block and forget. Of course never ever send money when asked by someone you don’t actually know in person.

    1. This is a scammer’s figment of imagination. This so-called base does not exist. Click this link. He is a fake soldier and a Nigerian criminal. Soldiers do not need your money. Leave is free and not even family can ask for him. They do not need expensive phones and satellite links. They can use their money and have credit cards and even get advance on their wages. Never send money to people you have not met face to face.

  42. Yes, but about Jeffery Plasse: he was mad when I asked him to email me from his military email, but then the next day he did. So then what does that mean? He did email me from an official us army email address.

    1. If so it as a faked military email address. I would need to see this email and others and the email address and header. I assure you he is a scammer. Soldiers on active duty don’t have time to phone family let alone chat to strangers. They don’t need money, phones or Western Union Transfers. Generals won’t write about leave. Civilians can’t ask for leave and leave travel is free. Please be clear he is a scammer.

I first met him on a dating website And once we began talking he deleted his profile. He talked me into sending him an iPhone . He told me that his wife passed away 2 years ago and that he has an 8 year old daughter. He has sent me several pictures in uniform and in civilian clothes as well as pics of him amd his daughter. He also sent me flowers for mothers day and has contacted me by phone. could you please tell me if this is a name that is known as a scammer? The phone # he called me from is 614 210-3238.

    1. I am sorry Krista. When I read this I am hoisting all the red flags up high. I guess he says he is “peacekeeping”. If he is in Afghanistan how does he have time to chat on line? And why does he need a phone off you when he earns a considerable amount and can use his wages and credit card? He is a filthy dirty inhabitant of a Lagos or Accra rubbish tip. He didn’t remove his profile, he got banned for scamming. Don’t buy him any more bananas AND BLOCK HIM. He is a scammer. We would like more info so use our secure contact page please.
