Report N1 (added on June, 27, 2018)

I met Josh on Christian Mingle, started emailing him to the yahoo account above; started messaging on FB Messenger; he asked for me to send him 3 $100 Itunes cards for his daughter (who was supposedly studying in France) - which I did. Then he asked me to send more - I said NO. Then he asked me to help him raise $83,000 to send a secure package out of Syria (containing gold and diamonds), I said NO...he kept asking me to check with my friends and family, and wanted me to take a loan out - I said NO. Then he asked for more Itunes cards so he could get prepaid calling cards to ask his friends for money - I said NO.

Report N2 (added on September, 11, 2018)

Started communicating in March 2018 on Christian Mingle and he immediately got me to move to e-mail and then Facebook messenger. As with others who have been scammed by Josh, he mentioned the need for iTunes cards for his daughter Claire Ann Marre Barnes who was studying abroad in France. He claimed to be unable to access his funds while he was in special ops in charge of drones and training in the Middle East. He claimed to be retiring to Cape Coral in Florida in May and then delayed to August. Originally claimed to be raised in Kentucky and moved to Beltsville, MD when his father died while he was a child. Raised by his mother in Maryland. Claimed his wife Heen died 7 years ago. Claimed his brother became paralyzed and sister in law died in child birth so Josh was raising his two nephews Aiden and Ellis.

One of his pictures is traced to a gym in NC where the gym owner confirmed it is actually not Joshua G Barnes. Josh later contacted me on match and said he was really Paul and was married. Later via email sunsetdiver884@gmail.com he claimed that the person and conversation on match was not him. He said he was not married but went back to the original story of being widowed. I feel sorry for the real person, who apparently had his pictures stolen.
