I didn't let him get to the point of asking me for money.
I just talked to him yesterday and stopped it today.
Since he didn't ask me for money yet, I don't 100% know it's a scam, but it seems very, very fishy (especially since there are a couple of similar profiles with a variation of the name). I've gotten friend requests from these guys on Facebook since my status changed to widowed a couple of years ago. Most of these military love seekers are scammers just looking to hook you and get your money. They know that women who are widowed are vulnerable and they want to take advantage. He sent pictures of an extremely handsome man which I believed was him. From the moment he charmed me, I decided to scam the Nigerian back, I knew it was a scam cause it happened to my friend. Asked me for payment to a lawyer for an immigration documanet to move out from danger area and buy an air ticket through money gram.
If he asks you to file for vacation time and tell them you were his fiancé, don't do it as it will cost you money and it all goes to his pocket. So this man sent me a couple of DM's on Twitter before I finally responded.If you need to request time off he himself can do so without any money coming out of your pocket. He was clearly trying to charm me, sending me a video of that titanic song and stuff. This man claims he is a doctor with the UN in Afghanistan. Plans on retiring when he is done in 15 months, and opening a hospital.They pretend to be soldiers, working in Pakistan and also in jobs that will pull at your heart strings to make you fall for them as soon as possible.Please take this warning and be very careful and forget about how you feel when you find out, and get them reported to whoever you can. I woke up this morning to a fb request from a guy called Dr James Bryan. He is definitely a good looking man and tells you everything a woman wants to hear.Please note , it will cost 5950 US dollars for the both, i mean the flight ticket and the BTA. He needed ,000,000 dollars to send things to me and I gave him that money, and he gave me an address in Frankston. Watch out for a Robert MIller [email protected] me on a singles line.
I hope to read from you as soon as you get my mail. I went there and it was not his, a young couple live there, he is a scammer so please be carful as I lost that money and reported him to FBI I too got contacted by a guy on fb, very similiar story to all those already posted except mine said he can't send a pic as mobile phones not allowed in army barracks he works in, in Aleppo Syria. My friends think he is a scammer but so far its been nearly 2 months and no asking for money. He says he is a contractor working in England from Austin Texas, and wife died.He claimed that his wife died from polycystic kidney disease 8 years ago and he was ready to move on. Said he was from Washington DC, but lives in Baltimore, MD. His English was broken and he seemed confused by situations happening in the US (such as insurance stuff, in regards to hospitals). He had way too much time to spend on Twitter for being a military doctor dealing with a suicide bomber a couple of days ago.He was messaging me all day, which I ignored, because I had stuff to do. It was like he never slept, and the times didn't add up (if he was actually in Afghanistan). I woke up this morning to this poem:"The darkness of the night has disappeared and the moon has taken shelter.His profile says he is from Houston, Texas, is an orthopaedic surgeon in the US Army, that he graduated from Westpoint and currently lives in Germany(possibly stationed there with the Army if true). He said he was a doctor and that his wife has passed and he has a five-year-old son.His profile pic is a very handsome man, caucasian looking. Things went great the first few days until he started asking me for money telling me his child has malaria and needs to medication.Now, the sun is here and the sky is as blue as ever. Plans to retire in 2 months and return to states to open clinic.
