    Hi, my name is Joan and I have been chatting with a Captain Roland Scott or Roland Scott Wilson. He is on a Peace Keeping Mission in Syria and in the Army. I've been chatting about a month. His wife is deceased and his acts are frozen and needs at least $1200.00 dollars for leave because of the craziness of what's gone on. He's scared. I said I was not sending money and he was not nice about it. He keeps talking about how unsafe it is in Syria. He still chats but not much. But always knocks me for not sending money. Suppose to be from Manchester, England but lives in New York. I told him he was a scam digger and he told me not to get in touch with him.

    Is there a Darren W. Mcdew in the Air Force? At first this guy asked for a friend request. When he text me another profile picture popped up. I asked him about it and he said it wasn't true. He told me his wife died and I looked it up but no info on her. He said he had a 16 year old son in Nigeria attending military academy. During this time he says he's in Syria on a peace mission. When I told him some things he got upset and said "out of my way, I' m a joker just like u!"" Now he's texting again and he is in Afghanistan with two daughter's this time and their mother left him for another man when he was in military. He wants to settle down when he returns. He is from Illinois. His sister has his daughters and they need a stepmom.Also this guy is the first one who asked for friend request. Mind you that the other profile had the name Crawford on it. So is he a scammer and does the real one know that his identification is being used? He has never asked for any money. It seemed so real at first. I was so confused. Tell me that he is a scammer!

    hi Ladies and gents also, please be careful there are a new set of scammers out and they are on the ok cupid/ eharmony and also plenty of fish. All have the same story they are widower and usually have one of two kids who are with a guardian. once again they ask for expensive electronics, claiming they have a lot of money, but the bank accounts are frozen. They are also using pictures of fashion models who are modeling camouflage clothing - go figure.

    I have been talking to this military man for a month. He said that his bank account is locked out for security issues and he can't send money home to his Children. Told me he is rich but he used another computer and they blocked his account. Saying he need to be their in person for them to remove the block. So he ask if I would send him money through money gram

Set to come home this summer. Wife died in a car accident and has one daughter. Some of his pics I found on the internet but others I can not- not sure if he is real. Has never asked for anything but states he cant Skype or call. Just curious if anyone else has encountered him.

    There is a new scammer called Jafierro Folger. Apparently he was a "secret military agent" then changed the story stating that he was in CIA. Profile states widowed and 49. Even though his picture looked younger. When we spoke he mentioned to be French but his accent was not. He rapidly asked to be in a relationship and he wanted to know every day about me.
    He was station at a military based in Florida and will call me- I couldn't call him. When he was supposed to come home all of the sudden he was reassigned to a mission. That's when he mentioned of any funding that he might need and a third party could be involved.

      I have the same problem with an Army man in Syria. Name is James Good. He said he can't access his account, asked me to write a email to help him get leave. He wants me to pay the fee, $3000.00. He promise to pay back when he gets into the states. The fee has to be turned in within 7 days of applying for leave. He said he knows i won't let him down. I don't trust him. I am not helping him.
      If anyone knows about this guy, let me know. Thanks

    There are a lot of these military scams on a newer site called Badoo to meet people. I haven't even been on a week, and already chatted with at least 10. Luckily, I ask a lot of questions and my brother served, so I am not stupid. Question everything! They claim to be overseas, and some of the places we don't even have there! I also ask them units and their jobs. They all have the same sad story of losing a wife 3 years ago and being a widower. be careful! I researched and it seems that they eventually ask for money to "come home" or visit. Stay safe people!
