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, KIK, Google Hangouts, Facebook Messenger, and other messenger apps. There are NO SOLDIERS, GENERALS, SERGEANTS or OFFICERS, DOCTORS,  SURGEONS,  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 YOUIf 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. 
Scammers will also find a  potential victim on a site and try to get  them isolated,  “Now I have found you please remove your profile”.   If the victim complies they are now off site security and while the scammer may claim to have removed himself too,  all they will do is block the victim, and  use a different profile to carry on scamming others or similar.
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.

Please also bear in mind information from United Nations.

This also applies to so called  UN marriage forms and bogus lawyers supposedly using free emailers such as gmail.  The UN does not do weddings  or involve themselves in personal matters, and charge money for it.  Even such a matter being mentioned is a 100% scam, (and neither does the Military.) Also The United Nations DO NOT have a Vacation Department and charge fees for insurance and flights  etc. If you see this you can also be sure it is a scam.  Bear in mind that any email they use would be something like “[email protected]” and they DO NOT use free emailers like “@gmail” or  “@unoffices.org”.

For Russian visitors:

(one of the most scammed groups in the world)

 Милые ДАМЫ!
ЗАПОМНИТЕ: на социальных и сайтах знакомств НЕТ И НЕ МОЖЕТ БЫТЬ (!) генералов, полковников, сержантов … и т.д. из США, Канады, Германии и других европейских стран, ищющих контакатов с женщинами!
Если вы видите профайл военного в форме из какого-либо иностранного государства, ищущего контакта с вами – это 100% СКАММЕР (мошенник)!
В СКАЙПЕ, Google Hangout, WhatsApp, Viber, KIK и других видов мессенджеров также нет военных иностранных государств, уверяющих, что базируются в Сирии. Афганистане, Ливии etc и ищущих контактов с женщинами… Наивно думать, что офицеры имеют время и техническую возможность охотиться на женщин в Интернете, зависая в том же Скайпе целый день.
НЕ ВЕРЬТЕ:
– иностранным «ИНЖЕНЕРАМ», работающим по контракту на нефтяных платформах или в странах Африки, а также в Малайзии;
– иностранным «МОРЯКАМ», находящимся на судне в море;
– иностранным «ДОКТОРАМ», работающим по контракту в Сирии, Ливии. Афганистане…
Скаммеры начинают говорит о любви к вам почти мгновенно в первом же чате. Обещают к вам приехать и жениться на вас. Просят вас удалить ваши профайлы с сайтов знакомств, поскольку якобы боятся потерять вас (“не хочу, чтобы какой-нибудь другой мужчина украл тебя у меня”). 
Схемы мошенничества используются разные, но надо запомнить:
– НЕ ВЫСЫЛАЙТЕ НИ ПОД КАКИМ ПРЕДЛОГОМ ДЕНЬГИ НИКОМУ ИЗ ИНТЕРНЕТА
– НЕ СОГЛАШАЙТЕСЬ ПРИНИМАТЬ НИКАКИЕ ПОСЫЛКИ
– НЕ СОГЛАШАЙТЕСЬ ПРИНИМАТЬ ДЕНЬГИ НА ВАШ БАНКОВСКИЙ СЧЕТ
НЕ СОГЛАШАЙТЕСЬ ОТКРЫВАТЬ БАНКОВСКИЙ СЧЕТ на имя кого бы то ни было.
– WESTERN UNION / MONEY GRAM / RIA банковские переводы людям из Интернета это всегда SCAM (МОШЕННИЧЕСТВО!)
Вы не заметите, как вас обманут и вы потеряете свои деньги!
НЕ ДЕЛИТЕСЬ С ЛЮДЬМИ ИЗ ИНТЕРНЕТА ЧАСТНОЙ ИНФОРМАЦИЕЙ (номер телефона, адрес, не высылайте копии ваших документов)
– НЕ открывайте свою вэбкамеру для людей, которые отказываются под каким-либо предлогом открыть для вас свою.
Имейте в виду, что скаммеры часто используют ИНТЕРАКТИВНОЕ ВИДЕО для демонстрации потенциальной жертве, с целью убедить её, что она действительно видит своего собеседника (скаммера) в видео чате. На самом деле, скаммер демонстрирует вам короткую ЗАПИСЬ с видеокамеры другого человека. Обычно это очень короткое видео (1-2 мин), с повторяющимися движениями человека на записи. Если вы его попросите, к примеру, улыбнуться или помахать рукой – он не сможет этого сделать, так как вам демонстрируется именно ЗАПИСЬ. Но обычно скаммеры заранее предупреждают перед демонстрацией такого видео, что не могут по каким-либо причинам использовать голосовой чат в данный момент. Это делается с целью предотвратить ваши просьбы помахать вам рукой, подмигнуть etc..
– НЕ поддавайтесь на попытки кого бы то ни было склонить вас к виртуальной интимной близости во время видео чата. Не высылайте свои интимные фото людям из Интернета. Вы можете попасться в сети ШАНТАЖИСТА!
– НЕ говорите скаммеру, что вы догадались, что он мошенник. Заблокируйте его  и не вступайте с ним далее в контакт.

  1. Hello. I got in Instagram a lot of those scammers.
    Now i got a paper sent by WhatsApp where I soposed to Kontakt to get his money out.
    Because I know about scammers i told the guy that I am scared to do this.
    He got upset and said something like you dont love me.
    This is not the first guy that wants something like this. I Was taking to a other one that need much money to pay the tax.
    He sendet me his passport. It was i fafe passport. It was realy a dad Kopie.
    So i would like to hear from you if you need any Thing of the stuff I have.

  2. ALL THIS IS CRAP
    WHAT IS SCAM
    WHO IS SCAMMING WHO
    STOP WASTING YOUR TIME
    ON THIS WEBSITE
    IS NOT USEFUL
    STOP AND FOCUS ON SOMETHING ELSE

  3. The man who sent me this very same photo has called himself Allen Miller Robles, is an Orthopaedic Surgeon working for the UN in Syria. We have been speaking on WhatsApp since early June. He ‘found’ me on Instagram.

    He has asked for me to accept $3.1 million Australian for ‘safe keeping’ until he has finished his contract there. This money is to be delivered by a diplomat/ private courier to my place (I have not given him an address). He wants to build a clinic here to continue his orthopaedic work and helping people. I have told him he must contact the Australian Govt to find out for sure what he needs to do.

    He wants this to be kept between ourselves… As if!!!

    I will provide his Whats App number if you like. Anything to tackle scum like this.

    My bank directed me to Reverse Photo which is why I am now writing.

    He claimed to have a son who fainted while on (US) summer holidays in Trinidad and Tobago. Unfortunately I have sent a sum of money to assist the child but was really unsure of doing so. Funnily enough, there have been no reports of the childs progress unless I ask.

    I contacted my bank and spoke to them about his plans, concerned that I may be used as a 3rd party in money laundering

    1. There are NO orthopaedic surgeons working for the UN in Syria. Diplomats omly work for the government they represent. All that mentioned, is a scammer story. Aynyone with that sum of money would use a bank and not give it to a random person on the internet they have never met. It is confusing to think of some nebulous contract that delivers that ampunt of money and of course it is just bullshit. The scammer is probably in Tobago and only invented a third party and pretends to be be someone else so you didn’t launder money, you sent it directly to the scammer.

  4. I have been talking to a guy who claims he is Jason Bill Bergley in the US Army in Syria in a special OPS unit. He said he has had tours in Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait and now Syria. He is retiring in about 15 weeks. Seems to be a great guy with love for God. We have been talking since June 2nd after meeting on Plenty of Fish. He has not asked for any kind of money from me, but he talks about an orphanage in Syria that he visits the children. I told him I wanted to send the kids a care package with some little trinkets from the states. He said he had never received care packages. So he would have to ask his commander what address to use to send the package. I was given an email address to email delivery personnel for the address. When I did, I got an email back that said due to the secrecy of his work, I have to send pictures of items I want to send in the package. The delivery personnel will have to do the shopping and send me pictures in return of the items they find. If it is what I want, they tell me the amount to send and then buy the items when they get the money. Again, he didn’t ask me to send anything, I volunteered and was the one to initiate the suggestion of sending something. He seems sincere, but I did do a reverse search on the photos he provided and they all come back to Romance Scam/Army Leave Scammer.

    1. All the elements of a scammer and they are all Godfearing too You will tell us he is “peacekeeping” too we guess. There is no orphanage in Syria he visits. Soldiers do not ask commanders anything. His work is so secret he shares it with strangers on the internet. He is asking for money by forging letters to send money and there are no delivery personel.

    1. Do you mean you are educating him to use better English and get better at scamming? Best not to deal with them unless you know what to do and bait safely. We do not recommend it.

  5. Hi, Im talking to this one girl, and she needs money to fly back and meet me, she is in Nigeria. Im mad because I want to trust her but I cant. I believe its a scam, I love life and hate money. The worst part about it is they promise a lot, in return.I never met the person and may never will, so I looked at scammers on romance and yup her picture popped up…. no address, nothing. not even here in the states. I know and feel it in my heart that she is a scammer. I don’t trust online romance anymore because of what happened to me in helping others more than myself.

  6. Ich lernte Dr. Daniel Adams am 10 April 2015 Kennen um 1 Uhr Nacht, Mein Telefon klingelte und ich sagte nur ich will schlafen und habe aufgelegt. Am anderen Morgen hat Er sich mit den Skype gemeldet und Entschuldig das Er mich geweckt hat. Er sagte mir das Er In Syrien ist in einem Krankenhaus im Auftrag der Ärzte ohne Grenzen. Es sei sehr gefährlich hier, so ging es Tage lang wir haben uns unterhalten mit dem Skype aber gesehen habe ich Ihn nicht. Dann eines Tages sagte Er mir das Er aus Syrien heraus wolle doch gäbe es nur eine Möglichkeit, mit einen Amerikanischen Transport Firma Die Menschen aus Syrien heraus bringe doch koste das Geld und da Er sein Bankkonto sperren ließ für Die Zeit die Er in Syrien sei habe Er kein Geld zur Verfügung, ob ich Ihm helfen könne, das habe ich gemacht. Leider kam immer wieder etwas dazwischen dann ist sein Pass abgelaufen und musste verlängert werden. Dann musste der Flug bezahlt werden. Und so ging es weiter bis ich nicht mehr konnte da ich kein Geld mehr hatte ich habe sogar meinen Schmuck verkauft um Ihm zu helfen denn Er sagte Immer Er wolle mit mir zusammen Leben in Zürich. Er sagte das Sie in die Türkei wollen und von Dort weiter. Das ging dann auch daneben weil die IS Bei der Grenze war und Sie zurück musste und einen andere Weg zu suchen. Es gab nur einen Möglichkeit nach Israel, Dort wurden Sie von einem Korrupten Zoll Beamten in das Land gelassen wo Er dann Hängen blieb weil ich das Geld nicht hatte für seinen Weiter Flug. Er hat dann die Paten Tante von Seinem Sohn Alex um Hilfe gebeten, Die dann an mich 1000.- USD gesendet hat. Und ich es an die Adresse die Er genannt hat weiter geleitet habe. Er konnte dann Israel verlassen und kam nach Istanbul wo sein Gepäck gescannt wurde und da Er Gold bei sich hatte wurde Er verhaftet, wegen Blut Gold. Er sagte mir dann das Er nachweisen muss das dieses Gold sein Eigentum sei, das Er mit Hilfe eines Zertifikats das in den Staaten hergestellt wurde. Doch ich hatte immer noch kein Geld also konnte ich Ihm nicht mehr helfen. Dann war Monate lang nichts Mehr. Bis letztes Jahr im Dezember, Dann hatte ich wieder Kontakt mit Ihm, Und Er sagte mir das ein Freund in Neuseeland Im helfe und das Geld auf mein Bank Konto, geschickt werde, Ich soll es dann dahin schicken und Er nannte mir den Namen in Accra Ghana, das habe ich dann gemacht. Ich hörte dann wieder im Februar von Ihm, mit der Bitte Ihm wieder zu Helfen. Eine Schnur Choojit hat es auch auf mein Bank Konto 4300.- CHF, das ich dann weiter geleitet habe an Kelly OTU in Accra Ghana. Und dann hörte ich wieder nichts mehr von Ihm. Doch in der Zwischen Zeit wollte Die Bank von Lois Bow diese 3000.- CHF von mir zurück. Das war der Grund warum ich Lois Bow gesucht habe. Wir haben Uns ausgesprochen. Das ist die ganze Geschichte.
    Auch Lois Bow ist ein Opfer Von diesem Betrüger, und ich nehme an das auch Choojit Schnur ebenfalls ein Opfer ist. Seine E-mail Daniel Adams [email protected]

    1. The way I understand it is that you sent money to a scammer and when he got back to you after some time he actually sent you money using an alias. You then forwarded it to the scammer who used a different bank account ID. Actually you laundered the money. It was stolen money from scam victims. Lois Bow is probably a fake bank letter because the scammer wants to get more money off you. Lois Bow does not exist. SEND NOTHING.
      Money laundering is a serious criminal offence.
      I would advise you to consult your local police force. They will probably accept the fact that you are a victim but it is more important to stop this scammer and get these bank accounts shut down. It will also protect you from any legal action in the future.

  7. I received a friend request on Facebook it was on January 16th from George Richmond, he is from France, but he lives in Waller, Texas, I found out he is a Romance scammer,five days later he said he had to go to a different country to ship his goods, then he told me he run out of money and he wanted me to assist him with $2,000 dollars that he was going to pay back within the next two days with interest, I wanted to make sure he was a scammer and I asked him for his information to send him the money,he gave an excuse. I just did not send him any money,he got so mad,but I did not care. This is what we have to do.

  8. I was recently contacted by a scammer posing as Gen. David L. Goldfein. Many red flags. Grammar was awful, seemed to have an “answer” for every question….would not answer questions, claimed he “loved” me, etc. Claimed he would buy a home for us wherever I wanted to live, etc.

  9. Hoffentlich nicht 😀 Aber folgendes, via Face Book bekam ich eine Freundschaftsanfrage, ik bekomme wohl mehre, aber die interessierte mich, wegen Namen (Süd Amerikanisch eventuell) und das Bild von eine 4 Sternen General de USAF. Alles möglich. Ich akzeptierte, obwohl wir keine gemeinsame Freunde hatten.
    Wir haben einige Malen via FB Messenger miteinander gechat und er frug mich nach Gmail zu gehen und seine Einladung in der Hangout zu kommen bitte annehmen wollte. Habe noch nichts schlimmes bemerkt. Also getan. Da wurde es denn immer heftiger, wir schickten Foto’s hin und her und bald kam da etwas wie eine Liebes Erklärung. Das ging eine ganze Zeit so weiter, denn liebe Worte und Romantik ist schon mal nett. Da fragte er mich um meine Adresse, er wollte mich ein Geschenk schicken und mit dabei waren denn einige Dokumente, die ich denn aufbewahren sollte. Er schicke mir eine Kopie der Frachtgesellschaft, und die besteht wirklich by the way.
    Da bekam ich ein email von dieser Gesellschaft um den customs Fee zu zahlen. Ich zögerte, aber weil der Airway Bill stimmte soweit, tat ich es auch. Ja jetzt weiß ich, sehr dumm. Zoll hat das Paket gescand und fest gestellt dass der Wert viel höher war und der Agent von der Ttransportfirma bat mich 42.000 Euro zu überweisen. Inzwischen war ich so misstrauisch geworden, dass ich angefangen habe zu suchen. Habe vieles Entdeckt und muss feststellen, dass ich ein scammer auf den Leim gegangen bin. Er ist noch in Kontakt mit mir, und das wollte ich so halten, damit jemand mir helfen konnte den zu stellen und mir zu sagen, wie ich diesen Type ohne weiteren Schaden Los werden kann.
    Lassen Sie mich wissen was Sie brauchen,

    Vieln Dank im voraus,

    Mit freundlichem Gruß

    1. This is 100% a leave scam and we have the email address listed. consultant.com is a free emailer and no official organisation would use them any more than they would use gmail. This instant love thing is a myth invented by a scammer to get your money. We have emailed you. You are not “helping” anyone, only sending money to a boy criminalin Nigeria or Ghana etc. Help yourself by sending it nothing.

  13. I just received a friend request on Facebook from a Gregg William. In doing a reverse image search, it appears that this same profile pic has been used in many other scams under several different names. He claims to be a Commander at US Army Central, living in Syria, Virginia and is widowed. Normally I just report these to fb as fake profiles, but I was wondering if there was something more that could be done. I’m attaching the link to his fb page.

  16. I was contacted by someone claiming to be Lt. Gen. John William Nicholson, USA and stationed in Afghanistan as head of ground forces. He has repeatedly told me he loves me and wants a life with me. He told me he is a widower. He has asked me for several Google Play cards-each one totaling 100 US dollars. He asked for my cell number and being quite taken by his words of love and romance, I gave it to him. He recently said he must delete his Instagram acct as he is at a security risk. I am very upset and worried this man is an imposter. We have been talking for over a month and he seemed so kind. Now though,in asking for additional Google Play cards I am very suspicious. Please help me out if this mess!! I actually believed him and have fallen quite hard for him. Before this goes any further can you tell me if this is the real Lt. Gen. John William Nicholson. USA Army with NATO ground forces in Afghanistan!??? Thank you for any help you can render to me.

His courier send email to me to confirm my information. today, the courier send me email that the parcel was kept by the custom because it is overweight. He asked me to send money to the custom account number 3000 USD. I sent 500 USD to the account he provided. he said the custom give me more time until tomorrow to pay the rest. Now I know he is a scam when I search his photo on the internet.
