Anyway, i would appreciate if you write me and tell me a few things about yourself. Are you married? Single? Have kids? I hope you are kind enough to write me again soon..

Name: David Bernard
On web sites: yahoo and skype
Report: Finally I have proof that this man is a scammer. He constantly pressured me into loaning him money for an apparently lonely child in Accra Ghana. Finally I checked his IP address and sure enough it was not registered to any army base in Afghanistan but rather to a californian server. When I confronted him he really turned nasty and ugly on me. That was indeed a close shave. Anybody out there must be warned against him.
Name: David Bernard
On web sites: Skype, yahoo
Report: This person contacted me via skype professing to be a colonel in camp black horse Kabul. He says he is a widower and has a son at school in Accra. After 2 days of furious skyping I started asking some questions of him. All he did was avoid to answer those questions and use the most awful english grammer to profess his undying love for me. I cannot find any record of him in active service and asked for his son's email address. After the socalled son replied telling me how he is in bording school and needs 2000usd for a birthday party I became more than convinced this is a scam. The father David Bernard claims to be under attack and cannot send his son upkeep money and then son is threatening to commit suicide. Help me confirm whether this is a scam or not.
Name: Ben Grayson
Location: Edmonton, Dallas Texas, malaysia
On web sites: match, yahoo messanger
Report: I met this man on match in Feb. He claimed to live in Edmonton Alberta. He was married but divorced..has a son that is 16. Father died 10 years ago and mother lives in Texas. He is a engineer. He told me he was falling in love etc and wrote poetry in most of the emails sent which I found exact stuff online. The pictures he sent were professionally done which I googled imaged searched and found out they were under a different name as well as his apparent son. He went to visit his mom in Dallas and then said he had business in Malaysia. Apparently his father had left him a sum of money that was to be given to him 10 years after his death and he went there to claim it. He sent said documents to me which said he inherited 4million. .but there was some fee that needed to be paid first. On his trip to Malaysia he claimed to have gotten his wallet swollen..but had enough money still for upkeep. .but then when he needed more for these court fees he then asked if I could help.
