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:

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

Here is a sampling of some of the photos of Sargent Handy we have found:
