Internet Dating Scam: Fake Soldiers

I just came across a post on “A Soldier’s Perspective” discussing a rather disgusting and disturbing trend that has guys posing as soldiers on Internet dating sites. Here’s the quote from CJ’s:

The latest trend involves trolling internet dating sites and convincing women that they are honorable Soldiers who have fallen in love and would do anything to communicate with the object of their affection. But, because they are deployed to Afghanistan or Iraq, they need you to sign up for an expensive telecommunications service like “Military TELEX” in order to make that happen. They profess unending love as their motivator and, unfortunately, many women have fallen for it.

The BIG red flag here is that the guy is asking for money. NEVER fall for that con.

If you come across anyone on a dating site who is asking you for money, regardless of the reason; block them immediately from further contact and then report them to the internet dating service.

You can also check out who is really behind their email address…

AND / or their telephone number…

To read specific details about about one incident, read CJ’s post “The New Military Dating Scam“.

    Hi, I am presently on line with someone who is also in the military and in negeria, i was on line with him for almost a month and I tried sending him a small package to he address given and he did received with photos taken on the item that I sent him, subsequently, he said he wanted to come visit me for my borthday and he needs me to apply leave for him and also a fee for the leave application. I don’t know to believe him or not.

  2. I met a guy called Kyle Weeks, aged 41 on Badoo in December 2015. He said he had just left the UK for deployment in Yemen and that he wants to start a relationship with me online so when he comes out this Summer for a few months it will be perfect. He said he does combat army and security peace keeping. We have swapped pics and selfies, he also sent me some of his house and car in the US. He messages me nearly every day and quickly started saying that he was missing me which I found odd as we hadn’t met but I felt flattered and was loving the attention from him and began to think about him constantly.

    He said his ex-wife is remarried and lives in Canada with his daughter. I asked him how was Badoo treating him and he said he deleted it, so I asked how many others he was talking to online and he said just me, but he could say anything as I wouldn’t be any the wiser as I’m no longer on there myself.

    Two weeks ago he messages to say that whilst he was spending the holidays with family somebody used his carepack and it now needed refilling so asked me for £100. Luckily I didn’t have it and suggested he ask family, colleagues etc to which he said he’d already tried. The following day he said a colleague gave him some stuff.

    He is very complimentary, says stuff such as falling in love every time he looks at my pics, could stare at me all day, lucky to have met me, crazy about me, can’t wait to meet me and kiss me. Then a few hours later comes the Love word! I’m like what!!!???? He repeats what he said before and added that he has to let me know how he feels as he doesn’t want to lose me because he is away.

    He also has a house in the UK that his aunt lives in which is near to where I live. He will be coming back to the UK in the summer and said no deployment for the next 2 years.

    He gave me his cellphone number and texed me on it to say that I can text him anytime, but when I asked he said he would prefer we continue to communicate via KIK (I assume because it is a free messenger like MSN). He asked me to send him a quick video message which I did, I asked him to send me one back he said he couldn’t due to security protocol.

    Last week I can’t remember what I typed into my search engine but I came across military dating scams and had a good read and compared scenarios of other victims.

    This Saturday I get a message from him “baby I need your help” as soon as I read that my heart sank as he again asked for money as his carepack was almost empty. I replied I thought his colleague helped him, he said yes just only just a few things that didn’t last long. I then asked who used to help him before, he said an ex-girlfriend. I didn’t reply for a few hours as I felt like a fool and was really disappointed in myself for falling for his lines but so thankful that I didn’t send him any money. I sent him a message later on that day saying “your not really interested in me are you, just be honest I can take it” He replied that he was, so I then said to prove it. He sends me an image saying “Everybody deserves somebody who makes them look forward to tomorrow”. That didn’t cut it with me so I sent another message telling him to be honest and tell me what he wants and no lies. To which he replies that he wants to marry me!! I reply how can he say that after messaging me for a month as we don’t know anything about each other. He replies that is how he feels right now and is “stronger attracted to me” (now I remember seeing to be on my guard for grammatical errors).

    I trawled through Facebook and saw that he was on there, his status said divorced and I even managed to do another search that confirmed his divorce. This morning I sent some more questions. He said he is a staff sergeant, has been in the army for 11 years and has 4 years left when he will be retiring. I asked him to send me any full length pics of him in his uniform which he did,2 are taken outside and one is of him receiving a certificate. I then asked if I would be able to email and send him parcels, he replied yes by using USPS international express mail but did not give me any addresses.

    Last night he messages me to ask again if I was able to sort out the £100, I replied that I will see (even though I had no intention of giving him any and was just keeping him hanging on). He replies “seriously? you are a darling”, I replied “gullible you mean”. He then replies that I am caring and he will owe me. Then seconds later provides me with the name and address of someone called Henry Luke K in Nigeria!!!! and told me to send it via moneygram. I asked who that person was and why send it there he said Henry is his colleague based in Nigeria who is a very good friend who he trusts as he can’t get his money direct; then sends me a pic of the two of them. I then ask dont they have ATMs there and he said no. So now I was well and truly pissed so didnt message him for the rest of the day. He messages me this morning asking how I am, I replied pissed then he asks why to which I ignored. He sent a good morning message a few hours later and then sent this “I know we haven’t met face to face yet but just talking to you last couple of months has made me realise so much”. I asked him what and he said loving again! So I then replied “can’t imagine why”, he asks how, I then reply that he doesn’t know me but he loves me. Then I sent another message saying don’t matter as I’m not stressing over it. He asks if I don’t believe him and I say no, then he sends crying emojis and the message “so you dont feel anything for me? Probably why you don’t want to help” I replied that I have feelings for him but got no money so probably won’t hear from him. He replies “no money? seriously”, I reply “see”, he replies “see what?” I then say how nothing has changed since he first asked me on January 8th. He replied “nothing changed yet, but you could help”. I asked how then he had the cheek to ask if I was poor.I replied “I’m not rich but that should’nt matter if you love someone”. He replies “then why can’t you help me” I reply I havent got any money. He replies “thank you bye” THE CHEEKY *****!!!!!

  3. Hi everyone! Need all your advice. I met a soldier on a gay dating app & he said he’s stationed in Afghanistan. He never asked for money though just some stuffs he need like shirts, towels & a cellphone. He sent me some of his pics but i have doubts if he’s real or fake. We always chat via Skype but never really talked over the phone. I don’t know if i should waste my time with him or take the risk.

  4. Yes it sounds like a scam especially if they keeping stuff away from telling u.

  5. Am also talking with someone still trying to figure out if it’s a scam. .they did ask for money I never send any.

  6. I was contacted my an army soldier who needed money to adopt a Afghanistan kid whose family was blown up. He claimed he was from Texas and net a picture of himself. He needed money which I sent. It was a total slam and caution to all single women who are on dating sites. He found me on match and scammed.

  7. My scammer is still speaking to me who do I report it to , I’m hoping he can be traced that’s why I’m still communicating with him

  8. Hey everyone. I have a question. I am writing about someone else. I know someone who met a guy “military works for United Nations stationed in Libya, Projected deport in set for March 15, 2016.” He told her he is way up in rank and can take an emergency leave and knows how to word it in order to take the leave to come see her and his son. Also, has a son who is 12 lives in Canada with his grandmother (the guys wife died in car wreck four years ago so child lives with his mother’s mother). The guy is Gabriel Giggs or Griggs Cruz or Cruise (Not sure how the middle or last name is spelled). As far as I know he has not ask her for money. They talk on Facebook all the time and she hides some things from everyone so I don’t know a lot about the situation, but for my own mind, Is this guy for real or scammer? I say he is a scammer. Has anyone heard of this name being used as a scammer?

    • You can check him out at pigbusters.co there are all kind of names on there so try each one. Tell your friend HE is a SCAMMER. I was scammed by home I fell head over heels. The sweet talk and the poems and things they send just convince you that it is real. Please be careful her whole family could be in danger!!!
