Report N2 (added on July, 17, 2013)
This man has contacted me on several occassions. Within the first week he asked for money to come home from the military so that we can become married.
As soon as I told him that i will not ever send money he stoped communicating with me. I asked him if he was a scammer, he denied and I gave him some names that showed in relation to his picture in scammer websites and he got angry. I told him i will never send money, if he does not want to ever recieve money from money we can continue talking. Communication completely stopped. In our earlier conversations i asked why his english was so bad, he denied it being bad.

Report N6 (added on October, 1, 2015)
He had a profile on OKCUPID and we chatted there and then moved to email. His original story was something about how his wife betrayed him and took all his money. I think he said he had a son.
When we started emailing, he sent very romantic emails about finally finding the right love.
I see from your photo library that he is one of the most active scammers.
Report N7 (added on December, 21, 2015)
Claims to be US sergeant serving in Afghanistan. 31 years in army. Canadian by birth widowed with a daughter Nancy. Claims to be NCO on batallion in charge chemical warfare defending. Has sent photos of a soldier he says he is and a family photo but with soldiers ID badge blacked out. He last reported that his troup had found large amounts of money left by Taliban and he kept it as he needs it to retire after this mission and is going to send it to me via diplomatic means. I believe this man is also in touch with other women in the US and Australia from the research I have done. He uses other alias also but can tell from his poor English that this person is a fake using stolen soldiers ID. I no longer contact this man and have sent the correspondence and fake photos he is using to the US foreign consulate in Edinburgh. I am angry that I was initially fooled by this scammer who got my details from Facebook. Tks.

Report N9 (added on January, 22, 2016)
He initiated contact I think; He used Growlr gay dating app; Corresponded for 3 + weeks; I'm educated, and there was static and inconsistencies that suggested English was not his first language (albeit very good !) and also, his answers were not that of the educated person he purported to be in the Army (used Raymond Chandlers III details from Wiki) but called himself Ivan Miller. Feeling somewhat pathetic now, similar to lady from Scotland, but twist to story was he was in combat and they found lots of gold, that he would have it transferred via diplomatic means (I even extended concern that there is now a more rigorous view of soldiers conduct, and that given they killed some (as his story went) that keeping the gold could negate his "legitimate" defence of self-defence and killings motivated by conveyance of the gold etc.; He shambolically tried to validate his position and said I would get 20% of his share of the "haul" if he transferred it - I did a general search of the web and found picture of Raymond Chandler after I'd given my blasted email and address (partly to tease out the scenario and was exploring the legality of it all in the interim - thankfully my bank details don't collate with those addresses), but I am on alert. He said he would email me, but I have since viber text him to challenge him and state that he is a fraud and tried to spook him by saying I had him tracked all day and that I was a catfish too sent to find him... (surreal - the lengths these matters go to now!)
