Other Comments:
I have communicating with a man met on a dating site, He stated he is a Sgt (James Collins) serving in Afghanistan. He sent pictures, all seemed legit and he was charming. Was I affected by his charm, oh yeah! Things were going well until a few days ago when he asked me to send a laptop computer and Iphone 5 to his 8 year old daughter in Ghana. After some investigating…there is a great deal of scams out there using our military as bait to catch unsuspecting single women. He said he would pay me back when he was back in the states. Please spread this information out there…ladies beware. No one should ask you for money…the military are well taken care of and they can place their own orders, call and skype with you, etc. I move on….my revenge is to get this information out there.. Thanks for spreading the word.

I was lucky or should I say smarter than this scumbag. I only exchanged 5 emails with him but he kept after me to get YAHOO Manager on my computer. I stalled , because I read a few days ago that this is a famous site for scammers. Boy, was that info correct., maybe not 100% but the person warning the public really helped me. He BS all the time about having to work on documents and said he took his Sgt.'s place at times . He had incorrect grammar ,words in different places in a sentence where they did not belong. There were other other clues that were suspicious. He is a very sweet talker,but I was not hit up for money, or anything of value YET. He is so smart, he is DUMB!!!!! Ladies ,beware , you would hate to be taken by this person. He said he was from,' Kissimmee, Fl. ' I asked who cares for his little girl , he never gave me an ans. he pulls at your heart strings b/c he claims ,' brothers died in an airplane accident, and his parents put him in boarding school , also he hardy ever got to see them.'( in my opinion, it probably was a reforming school for delinquents). He is a bad egg, get rid of him as fast as you can. He is out to break many hearts and that is his profession. A scammer good for nothing scumbag. He is probably not aware , that using that child's picture and asking for items on her behalf, could be grounds for child abuse. I hope there is a lawyer somewhere who can make a case for this child.

Thanks for posting about your experience with a online scammer.

Scammers are hoping for that the person they are trying to convince is not aware what online romance scams are to begin with. Scammers tries with whatever tricks to make the person emotional with made up stories about deceased relatives, sick parents, or accidents. Their stories are so incredible for a normal person that you start to wonder if they are truly dumb that they really think people are falling for all this stuff? Is it that simple? Of course not. The thing is after years of spending with supporting victims on this site, as I have myself once met a scammer made me come to the conclusion that scammers are very manipulative to begin with, and they do not waste time if they really did not believed that they could scam anyone.

Scammers are clever for the person that has not met an scammer before. Scammers rarely work/operate alone to scam a victim which makes them available for victims 24-7. The gang operation on a one single individual with draining the poor victim emotionally and financially can have fatal consequences which can end really bad for a scam victim. To say that scammers are dumb I would not. Most scams online are originating from West-Africa, and tracing a scammer overseas is very difficult.
I am glad you realized it was a scam and that you ceased the contact.

I guess I was lucky, or he IS very DUMB. We only communicated emails about 5 times. He certainly could turn that sweetness of his on. I was never fooled for a minute. I kept my guard up and never let it down. (' The old saying , if it smell like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it has to be a duck .'. He wanted for me to change to Yahoo so we would be able to chat more, one on one.
I stalled because I saw a few things that did not look right to me. He profasted to be a church goer but I had my doubts. I read on line that , not always but usually scammers like using the site Yahoo that is why I became suspicious. He had a bleeding heart story about his brothers
dying in a plane accident, and he was in a boarding school child and parents hardly visited him, I think he was in a
School for delinquent boys .He also said , he got off ,match. Com 'because he was so interested in me. '
He got off of the site, in hopes he could round up another laptop computer, and I phone 5.
Beware and be careful,ladies. He is not done with his extra curricular activities.

Everything you describe here in your post carries the signs of a online scammer. Most scammer uses yahoo as it is easy for them to get and to be able to chat with their victims, but scammers can use whatever domain address as well. Scammers tells very often that they delete their online accounts to impress on their victims as for to groom the victims into the scam. Post email address, photos, mails and phone number if you received one that the scammer is using in the scam. Thank you.
