This man initiated contact with me a couple of months ago and I am ashamed to say I fell head over heels for it/him. He has never asked for money, actually said he is not allowed to receive anything from me. He states he is a staff sergeant in the U.S. Army stationed in Kabul Afghanistan on a peace keeping mission, sent me the same pictures that are posted here. He has called me so I have spoken to him over the phone and explained his heavy accent as a result of spending years in Germany, he says he has a home in Miami Florida and that he will be retiring soon and wants to spend the rest of his life with me. He says he has a 16 year old daughter named Mary who is in Accra Ghana in a private school and being raised by close friends, he said his wife died over 10 years ago from a kidney disease. I cannot believe I have been so stupid to fall for this. My biggest worry is that I have Skype''d with him, he never showed himself saying he cannot because of his job in the military that he is not allowed to show himself on camera, but I have showed myself, too much of myself if you know what I mean.

I have been talking to him for the last 2 months. He said he was in Afghanistan getting ready to retire. He has a 12 year old son staying with his best friend a Mr. Lord. I received emails and text messages from both his son and Mr Lord. He's ordered me pizza and had delivered to my home so we can have dinner together as he said. He asked for a galaxy 5 phone but said because it would take to long if I shipped it to send Mr Lord the money I never sent it he said its OK he loved me not the phone then he needed me to send money for school books for danny his son. He wanted me to open a account at a Credit Union so he could transfer money from his account so I could send it to Mr Lord because Danny's paper work was messed up and he couldn't leave Ghana . He wanted to send Danny here to me so when he retired in 2 weeks we could buy a house and get married . When I didn't do what he instructed me to do he said some rude things and I blocked him.

I am IN SHOCK at how much of a scoundrel this idiot is !! I am livid !! Thankfully I was cautious enough to catch on and check on your site. But, he does have my address and ph number as well, and pictures of me and my boys ! I am just sick reading about all the money and gifts this creep has managed to escape with. I want this evil person to get jailed ! He popped out of nowhere on Match .com and kept chat requesting me persistently until I gave in. I can't believe he actually had me going. He asked for a cell phone on day 4. As soon as he asked I freaked out, but did not let on. He is under the impression I bought him a phone, and boy is he anxious to get it ! LOL. Anyway, I'm scamming him now. I wish I could speak with some of you. Im going to use the information listed on this site to do some reporting. I think I have his IP address too. Please put scammer in the subject. He posed as the same Lucas James from this site and called himself james, but gmail said Morgan James and james is on uniform. Claims to be in Kuwait, retiring soon. Said Aug 20 was BD. Claims to own a home in Austin, Tx. I am stringing him on in hopes of finding a way to catch him . If anyone is chatting with him now, as well, I wish we could chat about it.

James contacted me via Linkedin. Over time he advised me that he had no family and was heading out on a dangerous mission and needed someone to take care of his personal papers and could he send me the information. It was in a locked box and no one would have access to it. He hired a diplomat to bring the box to me. Before long the box was getting held up in Ghana as it did not have the proper paper work for it to pass through customs. The diplomat advised that we needed to pay for an ownership document, an origin document and a no inspection certificate. Next they said there were taxes to be paid. At that point I said I could no longer help out. Well James then hired a lawyer to come to the rescue and said the Diplomat company was not qualified to transport such a box. Then money was needed to get the no inspection certificate and a court order to allow the box to move to Canada from Ghana. Then the box did not pass the puffer test and the content were to be revealed.

I was contacted on Skype by General Terry Clark. He claimed to be based in Afghanistan and had been there for a year. He said he has a teenaged son Malivn who is at school in England but was currently on a field trip to Ghana and was based at the Kofi Anan school in Accra Ghana and would be there for 3 months. After having chatted for about 4 month said he wanted to marry me and got what was supposed to be the UN Office in the UK to send me a form for me to complete so that he would be given permission to leave the base. I completed the form which required a lot of my personal information and emailed it back to one Serfeze Ferenc (email address He then advised me on the price of the airline ticket and I sent USD to Collin Peters in the UK. Next came a copy of the booking for the ticket and then an email again from Serfeze Ferenc asking for what he called a travel allowance which would be handed to the General prior to him travelling in the form of a draft (not to be spent) So more USD were sent to Collin Peters in the UK. I am then advised that Serfeze Ferenc has arrived in Accra Ghana to collect Malvin and that they are due to depart for Afghanistan the next day. However on the way to the airport they are hit by a car and both end up at the Kent Hospital in Ghana. The hospital then start sending me e mails calling me Mrs Clark and saying that my son and the old man need treatment but they need payment to start treating the two. I could not find the hospital when I googled it and started to get really worried.Told Serfeze that I did not believe that anyone would travel into Africa without funds. He then said that his USD had been stolen off him by the good Samaritan who took them to hospital. When I refused to pay funds to the hospital he became threating and told me to remember that the UN has all my details. At this stage Terry Clark had stopped sending me e mail and was not coming on line on Skype. In all they took me for R140 000.00. Plus I sent an iPhone5 to Malvin as a birthday gift to Accra Ghana via DHL.
I see on your site that you know this person and he goes by many different names and is still at it. His profile picture on Skype is of a white haired man in uniform with the name tag of James. Malvin's e mail address is and Terry's e mail address is
One last thing he said that they were forbidden to use cam camera on Skype as the enemy were then able to trace them.

I am on dating site and received a mail from this creature. The instant I saw his picture I remembered that I had seen him on male.scammers and immediately checked. He joined the site today. I answered his male but I am going to stay on the site, not giving my mail. I will report abuse on the site, but they do nothing about it, I guess the profit from paying to be on the site is more important.

This is a scammers who has used photos on many sites .. also many of your clients has this photos... they are used in various names..adies.. this profile is use by spammers and scammers ...These pictures are known in many sites ... i researched this photo and names on the web..after
This man proposed to me and said I was his wife to be..that was in august 2014 and before in 2009 under another name, then he was a car dealer... so I did research on his name on web and his picture..
There are over 300+ pictures of this person. Military scammers has also posted on their sites under romantic scammers..
I know we are wanting love and want to be whole with a good partner, that is why we are women. Please research the men who contact you as there are scammers.. This person / people are not real.. As the military have stopped public and personal media within the forces... Looks can be charming..
Ladies you are intelligent creative ladies. I am placing this here because this man picture is being used for scams...
Read the warning signs which Scammer com as well as Romantic Scammers has over 400+ individual reports in 1 section and has 5 sections on this particular photographs of this person profile..
Women out to find loving men always fall into an emotional trap that ends up hurting them psychologically and taking away their money. Essentially, if the man you are dating has not started concocting very believable emotional stories that end with a request for some funds here and there, chances are the man is genuine. However, scammers are known to even take years earning a woman’s confidence before going in for the kill.
This scammer has used many stories. Loss of a wife and left with a child.. boy /girl. location varies from all over USA to overseas
Scammers are now universal
There is a reason to believe those who are mostly conned by men who seem and sound genuine are mostly locals. For example, a scammer in England was able to scam a dozen women from the same town with the same stories and emails until he was found out. His story was that he was from South Africa and an uncle who had lately passed away had left him an inheritance worth lots of money and property and was raising air fare to go and collect. While such male scammers are very common, has for many years established scammers are universal, with many even in the remotest areas of South America, Africa and Europe.
While you can use the potential scammer’s email to find him on social media and the internet, has a well stocked and weekly upgraded resource of male scammers from around the world.
There are always warning signs... Ladies you are worth so much more than to be scammed by a scammer..
Scammers first introduce themselves to their victims through emails, online dating sites and social network sites such as Facebook. In many cases, it is very easy to notice the age difference. However, using the email or name to find the potential scammer does not always work and you might end up thinking you are really communicating with a potential boyfriend or husband only to realize he had no social network profile or had hidden it well from you.
Scams usually go up as the age between the scammer and victim also increase. He might request any communication be done through a private email address or as you continue corresponding, the initial email you were corresponding through changes and you are given another. These are tell-tale signs you need to notice right away. In fact, if you can find his profile on social media or dating sites, you need to really look and analyze it effectively until you are satisfied he is not claiming to be in Latvia yet close to you in East London.
Experts at reiterate that a scammer will always give you some kind of a warning sign and if you are careful and not taken aback by emotions, love and the whole dating experience, you will notice them right away. Once you have ascertained there are a number of things that are not adding up or your gut feeling is telling you otherwise, you do not have to stop there.
General James Stuart... General Stuart James and again he has contacted me under another name Richard James Stuart, Martin J
ames, Martin Lucas, JAy Jay , I informed you ladies..
Ladies I know it can be hard to not fall for a picture.. Ladies you all are intelligent.. Look for the name of the person with pictures.. on Google .. this is what I found of the above person, who uses over 300 pictures of the same man .... be careful.. This is all of the same profile....
Do you know that pictures are all over the web, saying he not a person but a group of people who steel identity theft..
Do you know that this person take's away people's hope and will to live..
Do you know just in Sydney that 56 And growing each week, people die from suicide cause by Scammers..Like this..
That is real case history.. and just imagine on the state of NEw South Wales and then nationally and internationally... All adds up..
Scammers and this particular scammer, not only take money.. you take hope and the will to live..
Scammers are actually killing real people. Do you know that they are changing laws and developing laws that will charge you with death.. as you are taking lives by using psychologically to become real killers.
The photos you use are plastered over the net and your id's is listed as scammers. The people pictures you use, as also committing suicide, as they get the rough side of people's anger....and that is also why the laws are changing for scammers... Your country is going through unite nations to stop all assistance from international countries.. so your really stuffing up your own country. The Federal, FBI and Interpol are all watching you.. as a nation of scammers.
Even the many emails which you sent and sending me are all monitored. You have caused great international pain.

He asked me to send him a care package by Fedex but I sent it by USPS instead, it cost me $102 to send it, I sent it to: Ajayi Harrison in Accra Ghana new achimota 00233. Then I received an email saying that I needed to send $150 for the clearance fee for customs. Could not afford that so they told me to send $75 which I sent via money gram to: Ajayi Harrison Addogon Street. Accra Ghana 00233. I am currently talking to him still, now I see here he is a scammer. I used to see if he was a scammer to no avail, I ran the name Robin James, so I thought he was for real.

He initiated contact through Lavalife. I initially said that I did not want a long distance relationship. He insisted that love had no distance and that he felt something special towards me. We corresponded back and forth a few emails when I felt that something wasn't right. He was proclaiming his love for me after only a couple emails. The clincher was when I emailed him to tell him that I did not want a relationship where small children were involved. (He said that he had a 10 year old son he was raising as a single parent.) The joke was on him and I did not hear from him again. I only found his pics on this site when I was actually here searching for a couple other scammers that have come through lately. I had my doubts about this guy but after seeing all the links here back to his pics, it all becomes pretty clear. I dodged a bullet.

I, like so many women here, was caught off guard by this scammer. He says his name is Christopher Jason James, a SGM in the Army stationed in Cairo on a peace keeping mission. He says he is retiring in Aug 2015 and coming home to Florida. His typing should have given him away as his command of the English language (hind sight) is not the greatest - especially from someone impersonating a SGM.

He initially contacted me through - I had literally only been there for minutes. It was July 21, 2015. Our conversations transpired for just over a week when I confronted him about it. I come from a military background and some of the stuff he was writing just didn't add up. Like stating when he was traveling, what he was doing, etc. He requested that I purchase iTunes card so that he could download love songs. He just needed the codes off the cards. I, stupidly, purchased two and sent him the codes. He stated a day later that he needed more cards. Fortunately, I am only out $30.00.

He has sent half a dozen pictures of himself. When I called him out regarding this report he went off. I told him to get on Skype to prove he is who he said he is. It is definitely not the same person as the pictures. I was not able to hear audio on Skype, so I have no idea as to his accent.

He contacted me through facebook. He claimed to be a pilot in Afganstan on a peace keeping mission. At first I thought he was a lonely soldier so I corresponded with him. He claimed he was retiring in three months and could not wait to get out of the service. Told me he lived in Tampa Florida and had a 14 year old son. We never discussed his son. After just a few emails he stated his undying love for me and that he wanted to marry me. I knew something was not right, but kept emailing him. Eventually he told me he would not be retiring due to Washington keeping troops in Afghanstan until the end of 2017. At that time he told me of not being able to get money he needed to pay off people in Washington to put his retirement papers through. He stated he needed $75,000 to give to officials. I told him I did not have it. At that time he stated his team raided a Taliban camp and found money. Instead of turning the money in they split the money up between the team.

He was soon to retire and had a 10 year old son at home in Atlanta, Georgia being taken care of by a caregiver, and the caregiver's name is Kelvin BoatengThe first time he asked for money was to get his son food, because the caregiver had misappropriated the money he had for his care He told me he didn't have access to his money in the states, but he would pay me every cent back once he got back to the states.He supposedly had been given gold bars for rescuing the daughter of someone, forget who he had said. Then he needed money for the diplomat to do the paper work to send the gold back to the states. Then he was robbed and shot and on and on it went for close to 5 months. he is a smooth operator and I'm sorry to say I fell for his lines.

Frank James contacted me on POF. After a few message exchanges, we exchanged phone numbers and began texting. Then he asked if I would contact him via Hangouts, which I did. He told me that he was 2nd in command in Afghanistan. He told me that he had a daughter who lived in North Dakota and she had a 2 year old son. He said he'd been married twice - once to someone that was into drugs and alcohol, so he paid her $500K and divorced her. He married a second time, and she died almost 3 years ago. He said she was sick and he was ready to find someone again and retire and travel with. He said he'd be retiring after 29 years in early April. He said he had a house in both Hampton, VA and North Dakota. Said he was born in Germany. He took down his profile after we began speaking on Hangouts. When I asked him about it, he said that someone had sent him naked pictures and it pissed him off. I was the only one he was talking to. He asked me if I would get off of POF because he was very interested in me. I agreed and hid all of my profiles. The last regular conversation we had was in regards to his daughter - he asked if he had told me that she had a hole in her heart. I told him no, that I had known someone that had that and they could not have children and that his daughter was lucky. Later on that day I decided to google him - I know nothing about the military and because he said he was 2nd in command I thought I could find more out about him. This website and his name came up as the 2nd result. I read over all of the notes, saw the pictures and while none of the stories I read matched exactly, there were some similarities. And the pictures were what he had showed me, including the "wife he had lost". Also after reading over these comments, I saw that there was someone named Stuart James that had a facebook page. That FB page had the same pictures as well, and on 11/2016 there was a comment from Stephanie, Stuart James' wife saying how happy she was and that they'd had one great year. So then I knew the guy I was talking with had "stolen the ID of Stuart James". I confronted Frank James about it immediately. He said they were the scammers, not him. So I told him that I would need more proof that he was who he said he was. I asked him the name of the neighborhood his house in Hampton VA was in and he said Wythe. (This is of course easily determined from the internet.) I then asked him what PTC was - which is the name of a mall in Hampton VA built in the last 3 years. He did not know what it was, and never answered the question directly. I then asked him to tell me the name of the street his house was on and he said 'why not allow each other to go?' and to 'have a nice life'. Then he said he'd look for me when he got back home, which is of course BS.

Reached out via an European professional network (like LinkedIn in France) in which he listed himself as a pilot named Mark James. After a few back and forth through the site, asked for my cellphone number to text. Was hesitant to give out so suggested Skype. Sent me 14 pictures of him both in and out of military uniforms. Claimed he is a helicopter pilot in the US Army for the past 28 years and will be retiring in 3 months. Has a home in Miami, FL. Has a 14 year old son that is being cared for by a nanny while he is in Afganistan since his wife died in 2012. Started very heavy about his feelings for me and how I am the love he has been needing since his wife passed on. How he is excited to start a forever relationship. Claims he will buy gas stations and invest in real estate once he retires from the military. I noticed signs of avoiding certain questions and the time frames of him contacting me were off (time difference in US vs Kabul). The scariest part is that he did contact me via text. When I confronted him on how he got my number, he claims from Skype profile. Didn't think my phone number was listed on my Skype profile and verified that indeed it is not.

I met him on plenty of January 11. He said he was Stuart James fixing to get out of the military he was a general and he was looking to find a lady friend to be with him and his son Jeff who was staying with a Mr. Lord in Ghana. He asked me for a phone so we can talk and I sent him one like a dummy but he never called me on the phone kept saying the Internet didn't work over there. Then he kept asking for money to help with his son to Mr. Lord because they were hungry and his son needed money for school I gave him twice again. The picture he sent me was of Stuart James I researched it on the Military site then I realize I have been scammed he still continues to talk to me on hangups I deleted him then he called me on my telephone which I did give him my number but I blocked him. he claims the government of syria gave him gold and diamonds that he found in Syria in a Bungalo and he wanted $3000 from Me to help him get them back to the USA and I told him no way. Took me a while but I knew that was a scam. What an idiot I am but his story was so real and I am just a giving person. Ladies he scammed me good.

This scammer is using Jamesfrey1342 on Plenty of Fish right now, as I type. He's sent me a message saying Hi Gorgeous, how are you doing this wonderful day?
I remember that guy from your site because I was looking at scammer photos and I took notice that he was very good looking and has a resemblance to a friend of mine.

I was first contacted by this scammer on LinkedIn. He claimed to be Lt. General Hodges. I did not think too much about it and accepted his request. I'm connected to many of our military folks. I got an immediate response from him. Said he was in Afghanistan on a peace keeping mission and that his base was Munich. He asked me if I'd ever heard of Hangouts. Which I never had and also asked me to create a hangouts account so we could talk. I did. And as soon as I did that his LinkedIn account disappeared. I looked up Lt. General Hodges on line and found that he was an incredibly busy officer. So I knew something was up at that point.
I went to the Hangouts account and read this guy the riot act. I said words that I will repeat in this report. So then he says he's really just a Major in the Army stationed in South Korea. That he really liked and respected the General and that he thought I wouldn't except otherwise. Stupid me.
