In my case as many here it was a supposed Army Sgt.
in Afghanistan, about to retire and looking for someone to spend the rest of his life with, get married.
Seeing a photo won't tell you who you are really dealing with.
If you're chatting with someone who promises a relationship but asks you for money or i Tunes cards, or to help him transfer money, notice the warning signs. I've had who I think is the same guy on Instagram.
they just are not of the person you have been chatting w/it's a scam. She's not sure if the man she is talking to is real... Her story is almost same as yours, she has sent him a lot of money already, mostly for his daughter who is going to boarding school in Africa (or something like that) she also sent her money for a birthday party. I never accept unknown requests but hit the wrong button by mistake. He wanted me to be his girlfriend when we didn't even mnow each other.
I also was recently talking with a man named Michael Morgan who contacted me through Words With Friends on Facebook. he says he has no family just the family of deceased wife who is supposedly caring for girl while he is working overseas for an oil company as an engineer. I bet he told you his wife is alcoholic and has multiple affairs. My first question was why anyone would send a stranger a request. I then proceeded to respond to his request to get to know each other while I caught him in lies. Single father of a 12 yo boy whose mother died in a crash 4 years ago. We talked for maybe 20 minutes before he asked me for my bank account number because he wants to send me money because he says he wants to care for me.
They ask you to: Did you know you can do an image search of your love interest’s photo in your favorite search engine?
Here’s the real deal: Don’t send money to someone you met online — for any reason.
So basically the majority of the chats took place via Hangouts, immediately moving off of dating site (prob so they aren't reported).
On this chat app we exchanged more photos and he sent 2 of himself in Army uniform and a couple other ones. If you do, you must create a user name, or we will not post your comment.
My friend has been talking to a Frank Lashen who is calling her his wife and needs help to get out of Togo. The comments you post here become part of the public domain.
He says he is eating much and needs to pay hotel bill so he can leave and come home to her. A scammer can change the photo on his accounts in a few seconds.
