Linda Elton March 5, 2018 at 4:00 am - ReplyI have heard from my Oconner man, he found a hate site, he has seen it, there so many names that have been used, It hard to believe so many people has gotten caught up in this, but on this hate site, they listed the GENERAL JOHN OCONNER, AND MAJ, JACK OCONNER, I WAS TOLD HE WAS THE SAME PERSON, I HAVE NEVER SEEN A MAJ. JACK OCONNER, WHY WOULD GENERAL JOHN OCONNER BECOME MAJ JACK OCCONER, I ASK THIS QUESTION, AND THE PERSON WHO WROTE ME, WAS NOT NICE AT ALL, SHE ACCUSED ME OF A LOT OF THINGS, SHE SAID I WAS BASICALLY A FOOL FOR TALKING TO SOMEONE ON LINE I DO NOT KNOW, BUT IT NOT JUST ON MAN I AM DEALING WITH THERE ARE TWO, ONE I WAS ABLE TO GET RID OF, I don’t have to be told I should never had talk to this person, that he was not real, why would I talk to someone I do not know, well half the people on facebook you don’t know them, I get invites daily my men who are in or suppose to be in the army, but I do not except them as a friend, one of these men, I did not except him on facebook as a friend, he was using another person messager, I thought he was logal, and that he already knew me the way he talked, But I soon learn that he was trying to scam me, he had all these big dreams for us, but I had enough out of him, i got him to admit he was just trying to use me to get money, I don’t have any money, I did not send any money to him, But the second man is the worse, I really got caught up in him, what I have never liked is him having money sent to me, by people I do not know, for me to send the money to Ghana, he said he didn’t want my money, he wanted me, but the bad part, o ended up paying the fees to send the money, I paid the person who took me to get the money and send it off, So in way I have gave him money, He sent me a email, saying LINDA DOESN’T BELIEVE ME AND I AND TELLING HER THE TRUTH, Then he sent me the hate site he found, and he sent it to me saying look who using my picture, I am freq out over this, He told me money had been sent to me, wanting to know how he could give me the information to send the money, I wrote him back that I could not send any money, that money gram had closed my account, which is not true, but I told him that where he won’t try to push me to pick this money up, I am in the process of setting a new facebook page, because I had a lot of hackers, and scams, I am being force to get a new facebook page, because of what these people have done to me, they say there a video of me out there, sent it to my friends, I was sent the video, but when I try to see what it was I didn’t see anything, I warn people that this was not me, they are going into my friends messager and posting things to me, one wanted to know if I was at home, if I could go to town, they needed a I tuhe cardl which I did not respond to, then later a get a message from the person account they had used, and told me she had not wrote me, she was sorry, I have no idea who doing this to me, I am opening a new facebook page, to get away from them I hope, only very few people will be on this site, I felt I had to open a new page, because I cannot get facebook to help me out. I know I am being scam, I am trying to help to get this person caught, he did his damage, he knew I had had a hard time last year, he knew I lost my husband in July to cancer, and then in Sept, my mother was killed, and he found her obituary, and told me what I had wrote on there, He good very good, he never made me not believe that he was not being honest with me, He told me a lot of things, He knew I had already been scam, and I do not have money, he said he didn’t want my money, he wanted me, he got to me at a wrong time, no I don’t make a habit of talking to men I do not know, but something made me want to know about him, so I started talking to him, I thought he was a honest person, then when he wanted me to send the money for him, and he started having people send me money to send to Ghana for his son care, I didn’t know the way the Army worked until I went to there page and then I found you, And I knew I had to turn him in, It has hurt so bad, because I really fell for this person, and I am sorry I did, I never wanted my sister to know I was talking to him, but today I told her, because I at the end, I don’t know what to do, I am not talking to him, other than he wrote me to tell me there had been money sent to me, how was he going to get me the information to pick up the money and send it off, I did write him back, I told him I could not send any money off for him, I told him money gram had closed my account, I have notified money gram, I am working with them also, there no way I will ever send anymore money, but what I wondering who is this woman sending me the money, he said she was a cousin, why would she be sending the money, why he having her to send me the money, I asked him why couldn’t she send the money herself, he gave me some reason, but this woman is sending money, and it makes me wonder if she really knows what is going own. I want to tell her, but I don’t know if she is part of the scam, I would hate to know she is being scam, and I feel she is being scam, and that why she sending the money, there has been some men, but there transactions didn’t go through, I don’t like these people having my information, they know my address, and where I live, I don’t like that. And I told him many times, I told him not to have money sent to me, but he kept having it sent, so now what do I do about the money that setting there for me to pick up. because I am not going to pick the money or send it anywhere, It a hard thing to except, that I got caught up in this, and my part with the money, I thought I was doing it was a sick child, a child who wrote me, call me mummy, and what he wanted in a mother, how happy he was for his daddy, he wrote and told me he was very sick and needed help, he needed money to pay for the treatment he needs, I didn’t know that the Army would pay for these treatment, I question it many times, I question a lot of things, but I kept on because I want to believe this person, and that we would have had a wonderful life together, I didn’t know it was a scam, yes I talked to a stranger, the more he told me about his self, and what he wanted in a woman, That he had grown to love me, I changed his life, that he never felt the way he feels for me, it does not sound like a person who out of Ghana writing all of the things he wrote, I force him to tell me about his family, where he lived, at first he didn’t tell me, but he finally did, and I believed him. But I have taken the steps I have been told to take, I do not plan on talking to him any more, I have had my say, I know there no way he can prove to me who he is like he said he was, and if you heard him talk about his job in the army, you would believe he was working with these men, he fell asleep on his computer talking to me, I had no reason not to believe him, but when his son wrote to me and said he need food, that made me mad, because if he was living with a uncle, why wasn’t his uncel taking care of him, why won’t he have food, he said he knew I would not let him down, but I did not send money, I told his dad he needed to do something, his son needed him, that when he said he realized he needed to go ahead and retire to care for his son, and for us to be able to be together. I am very upset, I have not been able to sleep or eat, all I can think of is what I found out and what I had to do, but not let him know what I have been doing, I didn’t cut him of total, I felt he may give me the information I would need to get him caught, I request many things from him to prove to me who he was, he has never done this, I know what he been busy doing, he scamming other women, and I want to help get him caught, I will do what it takes to get him caught, if it means I have to talk to him, to make him believe I believe in him, to get the information I need to get him caught, I will do it, But I have not plans on sending any more emails, I have had my say, He knows how I feel, I don’t know if he will try to push this money issue, but it not going to do any good, because I will have no part in the money, I just want him caught, I will tell anyone about him, I should have stopped talking to, but I was hoping I would get some much needed anwers, I finally talked to my sister, she will help me in any way she can, I didn’t want her to know, because I knew how she felt, But I am a person I can’t not say anything, I have to do the right thing, it has hurt, to find out you been used, and you are a victim, but you not going to get over it over night, it going to take some time, I am changing my email, and facebook accounts, something I did not want to do, but I keep getting invites from soldiers every day, I have been hacked, so I have no choice but to take those steps, I do not know who I need to talk to locally about this, I need to talk to someone, I need help. thanks Linda Elton Linda Elton March 3, 2018 at 5:04 am - ReplyDo I need to change my email address and my face book page, because on face book I have been having problems with my sight, there someone contacting my friends, and saying there is a video out on my, they are sending information, the other day someone sent wanting to know if I was home, then they ask me if I could go to town, they wanted me to but then a I Tube card.

Now the steps to take to do what has to me done, Thanks Linda Elton Romance Scams Now Editorial Team March 3, 2018 at 12:25 am - ReplyWorking to get an individual scammer caught is mostly futile. Most of the time it is a team of scammers that scammed you, not one person. They work in gangs and even in large corporations of thousands of scammers. You are far better advised to focus on your own recovery. Recovering after a scam is far more important that obsessing on the scammer. We deal with the scammers by addressing their larger organizations and the political issues that permit this to go on. No one can promise you that your scammer will be arrested, unless they are placed on a watch list AND the cross into a country that enforces the law. Linda Elton February 26, 2018 at 5:06 am - ReplyWhat do I do if this man contacts me, I know if he wants some money sent, he will ask me to send the money for him, he always has the person send the money to me before he tells me, I have told him not to do it, I do not know the people he is getting the money from, It suppose to be used for his son who is suppose to be sick, it suppose to pay for his medications, This person never made me question him before, I don’t like sending the money, I did it because he said his son is sick, I am not giving him money, except when I send the money off, I end up paying the fee to send the money, And I do not have a car, so a friend has been taking me to pick up the money and send it off, He asked me for her name and address, I didn’t think anything about it at the time, and I gave him the information, then he turn around, and said he had money sent to her, cash, I had told him not to send the money to her, she wanted no part in the money, the money has never came, he has wrote me in concern of the money,, and what he wanting me to get her to do does not make sence, He thinks it the mail the problem, he said his friend sent the money express, and she needed to go to WalMart and ask them if they had the money, I cannot see what WalMart would have to do with this, I trusted this man, he never gave me a reason not to believe him, he know what to say, he knew how to steal my heart, he knows I have been hurt in the past, and I beg him to never break my heart, I had already had a problem with a soldier who wanted me to send money to pay for his kids to go to school, this guy wanted me not to pay my bills, and send the money to the man in charge, he wanted me to sell everything I had, because he thought I would marry him, which I never plan on doing, he kept pushing me to send money and I refused to send money.

If you sent money, it will not be coming back. You will need to accept the facts and try to recover emotionally – it is not easy – it takes time. If you are on Facebook, you can contact us through our page there, and we can guide you to a real scam victims’ support group. http://www.facebook.com/onlineromancefraudUnfortunately, that is all there is to do. Most scammers will not be caught, mainly because most victims never report them and because the information is usually not sufficient to identify the real persons performing the scam.We wish you all the best. Linda Elton February 25, 2018 at 2:59 pm - ReplyI have been talking with someone who picture in this photo is using, he sent one email, other than that we have been talking in hangout, he does not go by the name General John OConnor, he goes by Derick Oconner, he claims to be a commander, that in Iraq, he is retiring, he has a son who is in Ghana with a uncle, who also contacted me, his plans or what he saying is, when he get out he going to pick up his son, and come to where I am, he saying his son been sick, and has malaria, and that he needs money for his treatments, I do not have money and I have told him this, he claims he does not want my money, that he loves me and wants to marry me, he wrote me a lot in the beginning, but has not as often, he been having money sent to me, to send by money gram, to someone in Ghana, who picks the money up, because his son is not old enough to get the money, I need to know what to do, I want him stopped, this is very hard to find this out, and hard to report it, but I know it the right thing to do, I do not want to be caught up in a scam, he was having money sent to me through money gram, but there seems to be a problem when the person sends the money, money gram always saids to call the person who sent the money, but I don’t know the person who sent the money, because he always sends me the information, to use to pick up the money and send it, I have not had a problem in sending the money through money gram, but I want no part in this. This is very painful to believe you can get caught up in something like this, I have question him in the past several times, he never gave me to think he was not who he said he was He knows I do not want any part of the money, he calling different people to send the money to me, it suppose to be for his sons treatments, I question him why the military not paying for his child, I need to know what I need to do,.
