Contacted me on UK: Friends Reunited Dating.

Claims to be an American soldier working in Bagdad (Camp Victory - so difficult to contact because of 'security'), both parents died in a car crash, divorced from his wife who was into drugs, had an affair and has remarried. He has no other relatives except his daughter (Sophia), who is training to be a nurse and has gone to Ghana to do one of her modules.

Spends time each night chatting, and sends emails morning and night and then started to get them from the daughter as well. After 2 months came the request from the daughter to 'make a donation' to help a child 'grace' who has cancer and no insurance at the hospital. Daughter looking to raise $9000 dollars to help! This was followed by Rod saying he cannot help as he cannot access money from his base so suggested I send between $500 to $1000.

All the way through alarms bells ringing.... could not describe Baghdad, or home town in New Port Richie, Florida. No relatives to speak of and mentioned having a home in Rome but could not say what points of interest it was near.

Sent multiple photos and also flowers, chocolates, wine and a teddy! Appeared a bit plausable, handsome and would appeal to most with the declarations of love, but very over top 'I want to put a ring on your finger', 'I will never hurt you', 'will love to live with you' etc.

Needless to say, poor grammar and forgetful of some of the things previously said, along with some text that just looked too correct (spellings etc), so I copied and pasted some of the sentences into the net and yep... up they came (so copied and pasted by him and the 'daughter') set the alarms then the request for money finished things off.

Told the scammer that I did not trust nor believe him and then checked the IP addresses

good website that helps to do this is:

Found his emails appeared to come from Belleview, USA (not Iraq), but when tracking origional IP, turned out to be from Ghana! Sent a final email to say I knew that he was certainly not in Iraq or USA, and guess what.... no contact since!

HI,
the same person now is called Joseph Samuel and use the following email adress:
josphsamuel55@hotmail.com.

He says that currently is in Afganistan and also he is a Colonel, his son
John is 12 years old and live in Manchester with takecarer. His wife died in airplane crush, and his parents passed way years ago. No relatives, nobody to take care of his son......

His letters are romantics, loving, nothing new to say and to add to the said above.
After declared his love he asked for money....long story, but I don't know how he achieved that I sent money to him. I was so blind to see the truth and now reading all these pages I realised how the scammer is prepared to get influence and to dominate its victim. I have investigate the IP and the emails came firstly from Ghana and lately from Nigeria.

Hope this info to be useful for someone not to repeat my error.
I have a lot of photos, some of them the same (one with the hat)

Dear,
very soon he will tell you that he found a money and treasure in his last fight with the talibans, and he decide to send them to you.

So after that somebody will call you that these package must be cleared from custom and money must be paid................
He will call you every day, he will tell you that his life depends of this.
Really what a shame, the guy from the photo really seems to be real soldier, so pity.
Take care, this guy is using these photos since 1 years ago and nobody has rapped him.
Hope thet God will touch him and all these basters

Take care be aware all of you,
