A Message From The Real Sargent Handy
We Received A Comment Recently From The Real Wife of Sargent Handy About The Theft And Use Of His Photos:
The man in the photos is my husband.
We have been together for 7 years. The daughter in the photos is now 19.
We also have a 4 year old daughter together. Scammers have been using his photos since before we met.
I cannot believe this is still happening!!
Mrs. Ren Handy
We are sincerely thankful for her reaching out in this way.
So many women refuse to believe that those photos were stolen and simply used by scammers – many actually believe they are either in love with the real man in the photos or that he personally is scamming them from Nigeria or Ghana or wherever. We have said it many times, U.S. Soldiers in War Zones do not have the time or ability to be online talking to strangers on Facebook or Dating Sites.
Their photos are stolen, and they are victims too of identity theft. They are being impersonated for the sole purpose of defrauding you and other women of your money, breaking your hearts and lives in the process.
Regardless of how hard you fell for a photo, this is the reality of these scams and you have to accept it.
If you can’t you are on the path to mental illness.
We offer a scam victims’ support group specifically for women if you would like to join us, here is the link on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/RSN.Support.Group.27
Romance scams are one of the most despicable of crimes and we all need to work together to bring them to an end!
Our thanks to Mrs. Handy for her message.
We hope others who have had their photos and identities stolen by scammers will also reach out to us. They can email us at contact@AgainstRomanceScams.org
Here is a sampling of some of the photos of Sargent Handy we have found:
Please note that our policy is not to display children in stolen photos, however, the child below is now an adult.
We know this is a sensitive issue for the family of Sargent Handy, however posting photos in this way allows them to be found more easily in Google image searches and helps poison them for use by scammers.
FAQ: How Do You Properly Report Scammers?
It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.
Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:
- Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance
- Your National Police or FBI (www.IC3.gov)
- The Scars Worldwide Reporting Network HERE or on www.Anyscam.com
This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
