    I feel so bad for this General who name and photos are being used to scam women out of money. Disgusting. After one hour messaging him, I realized it was a scam. His words were too poetic and over the top. Instantly I was babe, sweetheart, dear. RED FLAG. I told him i was reporting him and of course he no longer had a profile. I will be posting a public post on FACEBOOK to warn other women who might not catch on so quickly

    I wasn’t scammed though he wanted me to purchase a iTunes card of $100 for his son that went buy Patrick. I refused him then he said I was rude. I lol him cause I said I’m hispanic it’s in my nature to be rude. He continued to tx me on hangout a app I never new of. I did send him pic of my self but that was it. Who ever it is doing this woman or man well their charming. Revered to me as babe & like all the other woman he fell in love w me after 2-3 tx. Said he was a general on a special mission in Kabul Afghanistan, had been there for 1 1:2. He was just doing 2 yrs this time around. The stories are some what alike. He said he was raised in Florida but his parents were from England . He was mostly in boarding school cause his parents we chasing there dreams. Spent most of his life w his grandfather.. his wife had died 2 yrs of this date may 15th 2018, of cancer. Was evasive of his type of wk. I ?? Everything & challenged everything he said it’s just my nature. But as for the last 3 days I haven’t hesrd from him other than one tx did I get the iTunes card. I called him out on this scam so he hasn’t tx back . Ppl are sad. Sorry for all you fallen women & best of luck to the future ones. I thank god for a smart niece that googled this name.

    He has been talking to me. Told me he was in Afghanistan, been there for 6 years. What kind of scam does he or whoever pull.

    Evbota Lauretta Efe has been using his photos under the alias of George O’Connor, on Facebook. She lives in Benin City, Nigeria, 30010. Her phone number is 234-996-409-4553. She fooled me for about 5 minutes. I’ve asked Facebook to block her postings.

    I feel for the gentleman who’s identity has been stolen.

    I wasn’t as smart as some of you. I talked to him for two months. For me he was James O’Connor. One week before he was to retire and come see me he asked for $3450.00 so he could turn in some stocks and buy a house when he gets here, I thank God I never sent him any money. He said he had a 9 year old daughter in Ghana and she was going to live with her caregivers so he could concentrate on a life with me. He was a real smooth talker and knew just what to say. He said he was a Warrant Officer in the Army stationed in Afghanistan. Good luck ladies, I wish someone could catch these guys!

    I have just ended his scam today, February 20, 2018. He is going by Gary O’Connor using The Pics and background information he found on line for John R. O’Connor. Even sent me a passport. Claims he has a wife who died in car accident and a 12 year old son named Peter. Wanted to move in with me after just 6 hours of e-mailing. Very smooth talker.

    Yes I’ve been in contact with him for a year on what’s app. Now his name is Daniel O’Connor. I’m not sure if this is his real name or not. Says he’s a major commander Army. He says he is in Tamalie, Gahana. He seemed very honest I’ve sent him money for plain ticket,medical . He sent me a bunch of pictures.

      No honey he’s a scammer like the others he’s been talking to my friend for 2 years.

    • M.S January 9, 2018 at 4:24 pm - Reply

      I received a request at my IG from a “willow Daniel “, his story was more or less the same: us soldier from Louisiana on a peace mission in Siria, widow with a son called Barry. 48 h later he was asking for money for his son, apparently he had no access to his money in Siria. I blocked him a reported him . I also tracked the name Daniel willow on Facebook and found a black guy from Africa. I assume that’s the scammer.
      I feel very sorry for the real John O’Connor, for being used by these dumbasses and all the women out there that really believe that kind of stories

    I was in contact with him by the name of General Michael O’Connor. He Has a diplomat that handles his business and personal requests. My lesson was unlike others. In our three month relationship on Google hang outs, with scheduled conversations convenient to our schedules we chatted up a storm. He captured my heart with his understanding, poetic words and true concern for me and my family. He earned my trust by writing scriptures in the bible to whatever issue i brought to the table. We romantically made love over the internet with our words and passion and hunger to be with one another. I have to say this was exactly what I needed in my life right now. He coached me into moving from one job to my new one that I love. He coached me to write again. He comforted me through the grieving of my son that passed four years ago. He connected me to my heart to know what makes it sing. I was excited and new this was truly sent from heaven. My heart was exploding. I am in love with him. His character. He opened up a whole new world to me. a world I thought was lost. He had me feeling emotions that I thought died when I buried my son. I learned to open up and love again. Then His requests started, I explained I could not afford it. He still maintained an online relationship with me. Then he asked for lesser amounts and material items like a cellphone. Again, I did not fulfill his requests. My revelation came when at the time of his requests and research brought me to this site. I suspected and began my research, and here was his picture. My heart sank. I didn’t want it to end. I played the songs he sent me, read the poetry he sent me. So confused because my heart felt it was real. I confronted him, he denied it. Of course had an excuse it was his ex girlfriend who set him up. My heart wanted to believe him. So I fired my heart and used my head. I have not heard from him since I confronted him. Do I peek to see if I do? of course i do. will i converse with him again? probably not. Am I sad? yes. Am I disappointed? yes. Am i depressed? no. Am I angry? no. He gave me so much to look forward to. I recognize that If i could fall in love with him, then I know he paved the way for me to find the real deal. I wish it was real because it would have been the greatest love story ever told. He may have started out scamming me, but I have so much love to look forward to, and I will never let that go. I hope this helps anyone who reads this. I hope you can hold on the the good and move forward. I was new to this and i can say lesson well learned. I still get these scammers emailing me. But now I am educated and block them then report them. I don’t regret my online scammer. He was the best thing that happened to me in a long time. Not that I want to encourage this, because maybe my scammer was new and had a heart or maybe he was exactly like he said he was, done with this life and getting ready to retire. I hope they all retire soon. I do know one thing, Knowledge is power. Now I know. Thank you for educating me for free, because i could not have afforded costs otherwise. It’s too bad that every new on line dater does not have to go through training first. lol.
