REPORT N1 (added on August, 12, 2013)
Charlotte (USA)

Contacted me on OKCupid, he claimed to be an only child with deceased parents. He is divorced, he claims his wife cheated on him and misused his funds. He has no children and has no family. Has been in Afghanistan for 2 years and is he on his last peace keeping mission and will be retiring. He was always trying to get me to worry about him being where he was. He would send me picture of himself in Afghanistan and it was obvious that he was there so easy to believe him and sympathize with him. He was very quickly so in love with me but was also quick to ask me for stuff to send to him....personal care items, t-shirts, etc. but then he told me, he was awarded gold for saving the ex-ministers wife and son and wanted to send me the gold as it was not safe there. He got me in touch with a delivery man who has stationed in Ghana. His friend in Ghana was asking me to send him $2800 through Western Union for his flight to get the gold to me. Well that the end of all communications.
