REPORT N1 (added on April, 10, 2015)
Ann (Ireland)

This guy claims to be a widower with twins aged 5, a boy and a girl. He said his wife died in childbirth on the 26th December 2009. His mother who lives in California looks after his children as his late wife had no living relatives. He claims he works for the UN on a contract basis. He is now in Pakistan working on a 6 month contract and he has asked for money to be transferred to a bank in Scotland. He said he couldn't make any contact with me while he was away so he would need a satellite phone to keep in contact. He said he couldn't make the payment from Pakistan and he asked if I could pay and that he would pay me back. He sent me details of where the payment was to be made. It was to go to a bank account in Hamilton, Scotland. The contact name I was give was Carol Ann Munro plus her account details. The amount to be transferred was 735USD. He is also using an app called TEXT ME, This app uses an American phone number, so when you call it, it seems to be genuine. I have a feeling this guy may live in Scotland. He has plenty of photo's to send, not one do I believe to be of him.
REPORT N2 (added on November, 26, 2015)
Sherry (Canada)

Same story as that listed under Ann from Ireland, when his name was Michael.
Twins aged five, boy and girl, born on Christmas Eve when wife died of maternal death. They live with his mother Christine, the Saint. Apparently lived in Arborg Manitoba for 12 years, UN Intelligence Officer same 12 years. Exact same wording and terms of endearment and improper grammar and back story as is in his emails posted by Ann from Ireland. Same person as in your profile photo, just different pictures.
Had to be shipped off to Syria and couldn't use personal phone there so required me to pay for a Satellite phone he was having shipped as couldn't make financial transactions. Money was to go to an account in Winnipeg. Claims he doesnt bring along anything from his personal life including credit and debit cards.
Then claims he wants to leave the current assignment and then he wants to retire from active duty altogether because you have given him a reason to begin living again. But he needs funds to pay his replacement, then funds to pay expenses in order to receive his pension benefits and will have to be shipped out to have a medical in order to return home. He somehow ends up with gold bars given to him as a gift for helping a wealthy family escape, and of course needs help in buying a license to have them in his possession etc.
