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 everyone

Since I first put the photos of 'Rod' on the website, I wanted to log in and see if he was still around. Surprised and saddened that this scammer is still using photos and identify of this soldier to cheat people almost 2 years later. I am glad that I did upload his details here and hope that this may just protect a few folks out there.

We all learn our lessons but some the hard way! Hope you all stay safe.

Best wishes

for me he was Jonathan John Miller (NY) hes phone num 315-351=0051 (phone jack) jonathan_7760@live.com..... i will say i never give him any money.


>>My whole name is Jonathan John Miller, you can call me JJ if you like. I am an American 47 years old and will be 48 in June. I have been divorced for 4 years now and like i said to you, I have a 10 year old son. I was born and raised in the City of Midland Michigan but have been living here in New York for the past 15 years. You already know my job. I work in the United States Army as a Commanding Officer and also in charge of the night patrol team in Afghanistan where I am currently based for a National Assignment.>>

THE SCAM WAS a box to be deliver to me after 3 days this happen:

I am very sorry I could not make it to you today. Things didnt go well as i planed. Like i said i had to go through some other countries before making it to you. I was delayed in Saudi Arabia and I am now in Tripoli Lybia and just made another delivery here. Most importantly I have to inform you that with my own money I paid for taxes and new postages amounting to 3800 USD from both countries on your package. When we meet I will present to you the document for the new postage I made from both countries.

I am in Lybia now and I have my last delivery to make in Ghana before you. My Flight from here to Ghana will take off in about an hour. I am very sure i will be able to make it to you on Tuesday because I will arrive in Ghana later tonight and will book my flight to puerto rico tomorrow being monday and by tuesday I will be in San Juan and I will call you as soon as I arrive.

Again I appologise for the delay and any inconvieniences caused. Meanwhile, Kindly let me know the nearest airport to you, in order to plan for my flight without creating any kind of inconvienience to either of us. You can as well tell me where convienient to you if you can not meet me at the airport, in that case I would need the address of where you would want me to meet you.

** i send a email to him to take care of this and i never here from him again...***

@Nona
This is not the man who is contacting you, this man in the photos are being used by men in Ghana and Nigeria, I have come across this mans photos all over the internet on varies dating sites and scam website.
The phone number he gave you is a Ghana phone number and if you call it you will be speaking to a West African young man pretending to be this man and he is not.
Trust me I have been going through this for the past year.
