Name: James Ramos
Other Comments: Had been talking to 'James Ramos' for about a week did not know about scams and then asked me to send $1500 to Achimota
Ghana to firstname.lastname@example.org so this diplomat could bring all his worldly possesions to me from Iraq to look after until he arrived home in August. I emailed the diplomat and he sent me an address which I googled and it brought me to your site. I then emailed 'James Ramos' who was also supposed to Western Union $1500 to this person told him I suspected this to be a scam and have not heard from since. I have since researched James Ramos who does exist in the States and believe he is the victim of identity theft however am not sure where to take it from there. I also have had five other conversations with people on match.com all male four of which are US Army who as soon as I mention scam and what happened they disappear. Is this common?
im glad that GOD saved me for this kind of proposal. I nearly believed his sweet proposals but thanks GOD of jis kindness to me GOD still protect and let me out of that scam by smith ramos eric

it says on his request for leave coming from the defence that he is a colonel his name if ramos smith eric. he has a son named Michael 16 to 17 year old boy. he was the wrote a letter to the US army requesting for leave and instructed me to send it via email to the US army military department and the defense reply approving him to leave but the requesting party must pay 990USdollar for his leave, i nearly pursuading of his lies but GOD still good to me , i received a video cam to my fb labelled as aaron ramos scammer thus by curiosity i played it and it showed there that he is asking viewers not to believe that he is not a scammer. but since i investigate deeper with that his various pic appeared and he was tagged a big time scammer. Good and thanks God i was not sent any amount for his request to the his agent named Patricia Rupp of new york USA. Please help us to put this man to jail and let him be punished by his foolishness done to women like us.

Hi! for a year I had been talking to a Ken Ramos on yahoo messenger and he didn't ask me for money until the end of May this year he told me it was for him to come and be with me he loved me very much so like a fool I sent him 450.00 the 1st of June then he didn't show up here and he got back on yahoo and I asked him why he wasn't on the plane to be here and he told me he needed another 750.00 to come here as the Military wouldn't send him home and he got mad and I didn't hear from him for 2 weeks then he Imed me again telling me he got badly hurt but couldn't find the pics to show me and he told me it was my fault and so I asked him how was it my fault he got hurt and he said because I left him there so then I asked him Ken do you really want to go this route he got mad and he said who is going to take care of his feedings as I was the only one he had to feed him when I told once again I had no money he told me OMG and never heard from him again.Same Profile pics I have seen on so many sites he has been on.Ken Ramos had sent me I think about 6 p;ics of the real Aaron Ramos.Then I started talking to an Aaron Ramos and he told me he was the real Aaron Ken Ramos and he needed 4,500.00 he got mad at me and never heard from him since.My heart and Prayers goes out to the real Aaron Ramos hope we get these guys.
i am sorry that you are scammed and had spend an whole year on this scumbag for nothing ,scammers can take very long time sometimes before they starts to ask for money,the normal is 6-8 weeks.Scammers do often get upset and angry when the victims do not send money so threats are very common too in this case,you maybe understand that the scammer is not the man on the photos,it is stolen by scammers from Ghana that abuses his pictures in scams.It is an gang of scammers that abuse this US soldiers pictures and are badly abused by them.I wonder about this picture you have posted here,i do not recommend anyone post pictures on your self here as scammers can come here sometimes ,so protecting your identity i take the liberty and delete it . If you have sent money once to these scammers they will never stop asking for money,so change your email address so you get rid of these scammers that comes back over and over again.
All kind regards//Miss Marple//

that man befriended me on facebook and was saying all kinds of crazy stuff, then he asked me if he could borrow money to by his daughter a birthday present. and asked what wasI going to send her.. he was saying he wanted to be with me til the heaven opens,he also posted something about the military and police and how the devil was a lier. I told him I did not know what he was talking about, he said someone stolen his pic and info.. when he asked me for money, I thought if you are in the service, then you shouldn't have to ask for money, so I checked out the name with scammer and told him he was a scammer, he said no he wasn't. I have not heard from him since 10-6-12.. this went on for three weeks, I am glad I checked it out.. what a friggin freak...
he said he was in Africa for two more months had a number from LA Cal, what a freak!! I feel bad for the military, he is giving them a bad name, he needs to be stopped before he does it to someone else, he should not be aloud to be on facebook, , they should not let that go through faceboook

I have a friend in Australia who was on a dating site. I unfortunately dont know which dating site that it was. She is now sending LOTS of money to a scammer. She is adamant she is not being scammed, but he says he is in Camp Phoenix in Afghanistan and doesnt have an address!!! What a load of BS!!! He goes by the name Larry Smith. If you look up Larry Smith, you will see that he already has a scam reputation. He had sent a picture of himself and on his Army uniform it said Velez. So..... what's up with that?? He said he was Larry Velez Smith, but they put Velez on his uniform (she still believes he's legit). So then on his facebook page, the picture he has posted is of 'himself' getting a Purple Heart!!! Just disgusting that someone would use someone else's injuries for furthering their nasty agenda!!!!!! This friend continues to send money, even after it's been pointed out that it's probably a scam to her many times. He said he needs money to pay the Officers so they wont send him to Syria!!!!!!!!!!!! ARE YOU SERIOUS!!!!! I dont want to rag on the girl, it's all in the name of love and who doesnt want to be loved. It makes me sad how naive and gullible she is and will probably end up bankrupt while he's taking his girlfriend to a 5 star restaurant in Nigeria. He also said he had been in the military for 20 years (and if you know anything about Army uniforms, you just need to look at this guys uniform, he's probably been in about 3 years) and would be getting $100,000 when he gets out of the military here soon.

of course it is an scam ,NO SOLDIER on mission would even dream about asking anyone money,i think the military takes care of their staff when they are out on duty...already the name Larry Smith tells me it is an african scam (Nigeria or Ghana)
the photo you posted here you can find on the link below and i can mention that the guy has not been in Afghanistan ,read below as it belongs to the photo where this soldier gets the Purple Heart from an mission in Iraq.
It is very hard to convince people who are already so deep in the scam and also sending money to these scammers ,makes it also harder for them to cease contact with the scammer and the scammers who she has sent the money to will not give up an source of an income ,they will never stop asking for money.
All kind regards //Miss Marple//
