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:

  1. Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance
  2. Your National Police or FBI (
  3. The Scars Worldwide Reporting Network HERE or on

This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.

    I have been talking to “Daniel” a “Marine” from POF, initially it was just getting to know you questions.. He has a 3 year old daughter.. even sent me pics, Wife died giving Birth…. A week into talking he is being sent to South Korea.. Sends me a message saying he has arrived and how much he loves me… Sends me pics of himself.. Handsome guy.. Then starts asking for a $200.00 ITunes card… Pump the brakes here!! What??? I come from a military family and never once has any of my family needed this while deployed. So I get curious, I send nothing and do a reverse catfish search on “Daniel” who can’t give me his last name because of “Security reasons” I find the pic he sent me in 6 other sites with Different names and ages! I called him out on it and he claims he had been hacked some while back and these other sites must have gotten his pics… Still unwilling to give me his last name, I asked his rank in the Marines.. By his Patch he is a Corporal but he says it is classified… Why do people do these things??

      Can I ask what other names he went by on the other sites. I am currently talking to someone who left a week after we started talking on POF overseas. He has not asked me for any money or ITUNES gift card and we have been chatting for about two weeks. He states he loves me too, and that his wife died during child birth, and that he has a six year old son. He has sent me pictures of him and his son, him in uniform etc. We have talked on the phone, but he says he can’t video chat due to where he is and the security levels involved. The thing that sounded familiar to me was the died in child birth. I have his supposed first and last name but cannot locate him anywhere on line. I did a reverse search of every picture he sent and it came back with nothing. He may be telling the truth, but I’m trying to find that out before I get any more involved. Thanks.

        I had some man name William Connor asked me for a $50.00 ITunes gift card I searched this person out and asked him I mean a lot of questions he lived in Whitney California and he had a Business Called Connors Empire Constructions company that is located in California I did a search of the small little town he lives in I was shocked what I found . Discovery of Mt Whitney. Then I looked up and Did a research of the company he supposed own I was shocked how he can lied about this to me now I found out that this company was not own by him and the company never located in California this company is Huge in Virginia and Maryland and Washington Dc area certainly he doesn’t own he victimized someone business. Then he kept on saying I love you sweetheart and babe and he misspelled words so I knew he was a scammer from Nigeria or Ghana that is why I didn’t fall for this ass hole traps when I confronted him he got pissed off at me started threatening me and calling me names then he blocked me the point is I think he is the same man does he have a 15 year old daughter I think she is fake and I think he stole her picture some place

          Scammer lie, it is what they do. Scammers will copy the information from real people and real companies too, so nothing is really proof they are real. It is as simple as this: if someone you never met in real life asks you for money online they are a sample – period.

    A guy that goes by the name of Mark Hark on fb he said in US army deployed in Afghanistan, wife died from cancer left him with 2 young children he is in love with me wants to come home to get marry so we can live as a family. Wants me to write letter to army general for him to get leave. Army General replied to me asking for US$10,000 for secret leave to be approved. Thank God I went to the US army website and read about the fake soldier love scam. He also sent me a picture stating he is a Sergeant Major Mark Hammock or Hammock H. Mark, one handsome dude ladies will fall in love at first sight. I later found out he is a Nigerian scammer. Ladies be careful they are outside of our skin. I am very scared to enter any private info herein I am not sure if they own this site

    Is anyone speaking with a Michael D’Andrea based out of Dublin, CA. He has a dating profile on Victoria Milan. I believe he may be a scammer but a very sophisticated one as I am able to run a background check on him. So the scammer has really stolen this guy’s identity or he is a real person. I have no idea. He has not asked for money. All pictures seem real.

    Anyone know of Tony Freeman, Special Forces, US Army. Works for TACOM LLC? Scammed thousands of dollars. Regret terribly but need to save rest of those who might be possible victims of this man’s scam story. Met me on Linkedin. Deleted his profile within 2 weeks of talking. He said he was high profile and therefore couldn’t be active on social media.

    I was sweet talked by Jacob Millet Rayburn. He claimed to be a single dad of 2 boys. Mom had died of cancer. Here’s all the scams he tried to pull on me.
    1..His dad had a business in Dubai and needed help with transferring money. Needed my personal info to give to his lawyer.
    2 If I called the army and told them he and were engaged he could get a phone so we could talk.
    3. His son’s birthday was coming up but the army froze his bank account while he was deployed. He wanted me to help him with money so he could send his son a birthday present.
    4. ITune gift cards to update his iPhone.
    No…. I didn’t help and he kept coming back. His Facebook has been shutdown/deleted. Not sure which. I feel for the people that have had their photos stolen.

    Once scammed the criminals put you on a list. And they come at one from all directions. Watch your followers and the ones you follow. They not always your friends. The follow 0ne from page to page and gather information. I was scammed once, lost no money, but a few months of my time. Learned a lot. Corresponded with many, preprinted introduction, in the war zone , wife died in car accident, cancer and so on. What the all have in common ,? No access to money. And than they start the yucky English. When the subject comes to money, block and report. I learned the hard way, not to correspond with strangers on line. Was hacked, viruses implanted into a different computer, harassment and foul language used in open post. Had to change everything. Please, be careful. They are great manipulators. Thank you for this side. This is the only one I trust.

    Military scammers are the lowest of the low. I was messaged on POF from a Sargent Richard Booke, he is a scammer. After a few messages he wanted to text, then the next day he wanted me to take my profile off POF and I happily did it, because by now I figured out he was a scammer. The tired old story dead wife, young daughter, so I asked who looks after your daughter when you are in Afghanistan he said a guardian. When I pushed for a name he changed the subject. Of course he is madly in love, so I gave him a twist said my nephew in the US military was shipping out to Afghanistan and I would give my nephew his name and rank, and what was his lady name again, his reply was Brooke the dope didn’t remember he told me Booke in the first email. Then he tells me not to say anything to my nephew because we should keep our love secret and surprise the family with the news later. Didn’t ask for money, wants to video me in the shower. Never ceases to amaze me that these scammers thing you will fall in love with them and do anything without ever having met them. So another one for the records Richard Booke/Brooke

    Has anyone had any contact with a man named Anthony Black? he claims to be from Virginia but says he stationed in Africa in the arm. He never asked for anything didn’t get far enough but he claimed he was my soulmate (creepy). He stopped messaging after I asked for a pic with today’s date showing on it so I could prove he was real, I had a weird vibe from the first message.

      I was recently contacted by him but he also uses the name James, Borros, Rodriguez he supposedly is “in camp.” He told me he has a son 9 years old and his wife “Alicia” passed away 3 years ago. I researched his photos and information on the internet he has about 6 FB pages and is on LinkedIn and a ton of other sites. He truly is a Piece of Shit glad I’m the type of woman to research a man before taking him seriously. He even had someone else contact me by the name of “Mark Motalvo,” to give me some heartfelt BS about his friend. I feel sorry for the women that fall for these scams.

    Desde febrero del 2016. Me llegó una solicitud de amistad por una red que se llama Tagged. Es un soldado de la army de usa. Procedente de Dallas Texas . 29 años en la actualidad nacido el 21 de Marzo . Su nombre es Nate o Nathan Skom o Skompki . Dice ser huérfano y haberse criado en un orfanato . Pertenece al ejército desde los 18 años. De los cuales sólo ha descansado en dos oportunidades. Dice que trabaja 24 horas y que duerme muy poco de 2 o 3 horas. Mejor dicho todo un esclavo según el. Me agrego a Facebook que porque no le gustaba mucho la otra red. Y también por messanger, skype y desde hace un año me dijo que solamente le dejaban utilizar en el ejército en Irak donde supuestamente trabaja desde hace más de 6 años, la app Hangouts de Google . Nunca me ha llamado y menos ha querido que hablemos por Skype en cámara . Siempre me dice que solamente puede texto y el si me conoce lógicamente porque yo activé mi cámara . Pero siempre quiere solo cámara y yo nisiquiera puedo escuchar su voz. Solamente el dice mándame besos y así quiere tener sexo por ese medio . Yo me enoje y le dije que no . Soy sincera si hablé así tenss eriticos y me desnude dos veces, pero no,,, eso no me gusto para nada. Que pereza , no trae nada bueno para una mujer hacerlo, por eso le dije que nunca quería más ese chat por cámara y desde entonces nos comunicamos por texto. Me busca casi todos los fines de semana y dice que desea casarse conmigo, todo un romanticismo y que quiere tener 2 o 3 hijos , etc… toda una carreta. Nunca me ha pedido dinero. Y cuando trato de insinuar que no tenía dinero allá en efectivo porque nunca les pagaban , hasta no regresar a su país de origen , entonces yo le dije que el era un fake y se puso todo enojado y dejo de comunicarse por un mes aproximadamente. Después volvió a buscarme y así todo el tiempo , que quiere verme pronto siempre me dice pero ya han pasado dos años y nada . Siempre posterga sus vacaciones . Como me aburrí por esa relación sin sentido y además dudo que sea real entonces lo bloquee en todos los sitios donde me tenia de amiga . Y me envía muchos mensajes por su mail de google pero ni los leo parano tener la tentación de contestar. Por favor que me pueden aconsejar . Tengo 30 años y el supuestamente 29 años de edad. Agradeciéndoles de antemano la gentileza en su atención a la presente . Diana .

    I have been speaking to a Sargent Wyatt Mills in Kabul Afghanastan Met him on Zoosk and he immediately routed me to a Skype chat, He has the story of loosing both parents and his ex wife is dead and he has a son here in the states that he does not see because he has been in Kabul for over a year.Have been chatting with him on Skype for several months. He sent flowers to me from a FTD in Ohio. After speaking for several months he kept hinting that his son wanted something but because a unit in Iraq had been hacked the us government froze all military members accounts and he was unable to get his son the git he wanted. He asked me to purchase over a thousand dollars worth of stuff for his son Scott, of course I did not. I confronted him and asked for a military email and FPO address …he told me that he was not able to give out that information, and spent over an hour trying to turn the conversation on me for quesioning and interrogating him. He left the conversation sticking to the I have to go out with my unit BS.

    I have been txt & emailing with John Bruce Williams for almost 2 years now. I spoke once on the phone when he called from a “restricted number” and he was very hard to understand. I sent money via money gram at around $8,000. He states he is a U.S. LT Commander training Nigerian soldiers in Lagos Nigeria. His email and phone number are not traceable nor was I able to obtain the IP address of his location.

    843-776-2688 number
    I recieved a email a few days ago that stated… “I tried to txt you back and you said stop so i guess you dont want to talk to me anymore i still love
    He definitely has been trying to scam someone else since I stopped sending money to Nigeria. Is there anyone highly trained enough that can find out exactly who this is and stop this before more money is sent to Nigeria?

And you need sent to Ghana or Nigeria. Haha…..
      Then i pretend im sending. Of course i never told nobody my real name.then i text fake western Union nr. Next day… oh baby i not get money. .wu haven’t that money.
      Same thing , doctors in west africa, engineers, contract job employees in other countrys from USA. After 2 weeks coming home. Or planning retired and open own busines in yours city. With family – same stories. Most this guys ask for i tunes cards.

      You can talk to them. But red flag iis , when someone start asking you send ,or help receive money, open bank accounts. Buy i tunes card, send parcels …… All fake.

      Can’t believe exist to stupid women’s ? and someone ever send money?

    This scammer contacted me via Facebook using the name Oyia Stella (Jefferson) Sargent US Army, on a peace keeping mission in Hargeisa Somalia.He was very sincere had a heartbreaking story. At first I thought he was legitimate seemed to about the “military life”, his role etc. I got suspicious when he asked me to purchase a communication card w/the cheapest one being $600 (2wks). Long story short, his grammar was not that bad BUT every time I asked about his mission, mailing address or even his military e-mail he would change the subject. On another occasion he said that he would ask the commanding officer for his “data”, as he claimed to not know his nationality, his parents passed when he was very young, his uncle put him in the Military academy at a young age, had no family other then his Uncle whom he lost track of. Eventually after I did not purchase the communication card, he blocked me. This scammer is really good, will tell you anything to grab your heart. However, I’m a bit smarter then him and didn’t fall for his scam.. If anyone has been contacted by this person, please don’t fall for it. It’s unfortunate that his innocent Soldier is being used by this scammer.

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!

    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.

    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!
