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”.

  2. Marsha Huston says

    I was talking to Frank Daniel Thomspon said he was a soldier and he was from Spain but he was in Irqa I did help him out with gift cards

  3. hi all,

    did someone heard about Garrett Stockman? i am curious ..

  4. I just blocked a scammer, he was textbook description of everything mentioned here. He claims his name is Dwayne Fred Teague, from Texas and no parents nor siblings. Met him on Tinder. Said all the things of looking for wife, broken English and that he loved me. Then he said he lost his wallet in a mision and has no money to eat, that the military doesn’t provide him anything. Asked for $1000. I felt for quite sometime it could be a catfish but now I am sure he eas trying to get money. He even has a Facebook profile that is not convincing. Rather not risk myself.

    • MSG Robert McLaughlin says

      Tell him you will send him the money but he has to send you $100 first to show he is real, then keep it. :>

  5. Anyone knows James Canfield? Or Scottie Stevens?
