We have all heard that term. Hello this is Vexed and this is my story:
I had never been to a date site until a friend of mine told me he goes to them just for fun and that I should try it. So, I signed up to one. The next morning I woke and to my surprise had a message on my fb page from a US Marine, this is what he said:

Terry Stone
Hello, How are you doing? I was browsing true some profile,i like your profile it sound good and fun.and I would like to get to know you better and see where it goes Well..My name terry stone and you ? hope to hear from you soon

The next one was left a couple of days later after I responded to the widowed Marine I will also post his fb profile picture:


Terry Stone
you sound so interesting to me.well am glad you replied my message.am very grateful.am also new on that site but you can add me on fb or add me up on my messenger this is my mail address.sgtstoneterry@yahoo.com or send me yourso i can add you.i will be the happiest man if you can hounor my request.happy easter

It took me 10 days to get on to chat after I added him to my messanger, but he was there the second I logged on. His picture stirred something in me~ I am usually VERY cautious as to who I open up too; I don't know how he was able to get so much info from me~they are good at what they do, I guess. Here is a portion of our first chat, and the profile pic he posted AFTER i sent the first installment of 100usd:

Ok, red flags should have caught my attention with this first conversation~~ cant' spell Afghan, :lmao: no such thing as "National Assignment, asking what I do for a living, and later in conversation told me he was divorced, NOT a widow! WOW, what was I thinking??? Not soon after he was asking for $ so he could buy...get this...COFFEE!! Told me he was an addicted to it and if he did not have it he would be sick! He also asked if fb was a dating site and I never got the answer to the question: "how did you find me?" here are some more fb messages we exchanged:

you need to allow me to write on your wall. you have high security, here, dear
HELLO??? can't send you ANYTHING!! change settings for me please! you are looking at mine, now, I can see your likes!!! ee heee hurry!
you use Zoosk? wht is really going on?

April 23Terry Stone
Ok i will do that now

April 23 ME
are you using zoosz???????

April 23 ME
i 5 minutes, I am blocking you if I cant send or write on your page!!! getting suspicious!!! answer me
you use a lot of dating sites. don't like what i am seeing so far. Answer me please!!!!
you are on a mobile phone!!! what is going on??? I do not like this!!!!!
where are you???? I think you are closer than you say!!!
you told me you were 45 years old??? you are younger than me

April 23Terry Stone
No am not using zoosk
My commander gave me is phone to hold am with him now so have left the computer room.I just quickly signed in on his phone.

Ok, more red flags should have been seen here, but I rather enjoyed the attention I guess!! STUPID, STUPID, STUPID!! :oops:
I was in contact with him for over 6 months, and in that time I sent him a total of 250usd. Not much compared to some of the people I heard, but he was working me the whole time. Having FULL access to my fb page and getting all of my friends info and pics! A very good friend of mine posted the following and he jumped at the chance to get her too!!

Your Military pen pal is a good looking man , and a hero to me, How do I get one? I would love to communicate with a soldier serving our country, I pray for him and all our brave men and women serving our country!!! Pass my love along to them! :)
April 25 at 7:09am · Unlike · 2

He kept a close eye on me and my posts, He mentioned what she said and told me he had a friend, FREDDY that would love to chat with her! I will post that conversation, an argument (one of many) as well as Freddy's pic next:

Terry Stone
I ould search my whole life through and through an never find another you.

I love my life because it gave me you
I love you because you are my life

When you see a falling star to night, make a wish, it will come true because I wished and I found you.

If I had to choose whether to breathe or to love you, I would use my last breath to tell you that... I love you.

ME: why did you ever leave that first msg to me on fb??? was fine alone, you sent my world into tailspin and now ur gone. will never trust another man. rather than listen, get info, you leave and send me nasty notes. thought u were a different man. am fooled again, I guess. GOODbye
f*ck! hey, dude, I took $ out of M G and used W U. too much trouble w/ mg, have been trying to fix this for u and all I get is ignored, I HATE being ignored. am leaving for 45 min. nedd to find way to xxxxx's. have been p all night AGAIN, getting this done, and I am only being called horrible things by u. tell freddy to be online, spoke to xxxxxx. bye

July 27Terry Stone
Hun you made me said those words cos of the bullshit u do cos me u make pple can me several name. U think is fair with the ways am been treated by u? Just bcoz of how much u made agent call me names.

ME: u better leave ur Q & A for MG here asap, i alsp wont be able to give u a ETA on cheese fund arrival/. gonna have to wing it. i know ur are reading these. would have been nice to see some kind of reply showing concern or maybe...LOVE!
feeling alone and un-loved bt u a lot lately.

Mia Culpa=my fault for letting myself be treated this way. I mst be a glutton for puishment. have 40 min. left for internet. let's see wot happens...

July 20Terry Stone
Babe is like u dnt trust me.mayb I should open a new yahoomail.dnt u think so too
Luvin u is wt i wnt to do al my lif. Plz. Is never in my heart to hurt u or treat u bad.


ME: maybe it is ur phone and not yahoo.men have fucked w/ me my entire life, I have a tough time trusting men.(hence me being single by choice 4 long time.) It is not you, it is my issue, but sometimes u don't help the matter. u need to be a little more understanding. You only know very little about all the abuse I have endured by men who said they "luved" me. I will fix my messenger for awhile, if u can come on, fine but after tonight, If I feel as I am feeling now... well, I don't know wot to do. I am putting my trust in God, we "met" for a reason, I have to trust HIM (one of few men I've ever trusted) so, I will. remember, this is my demon, not yours, I just know you have lied, so now I am on gaurd; I evaluate everything..unhealthy, yes, but am getting help 4 it. I will fix messenger now. And try my hardest not to let doubt come between us.


PS~use computer, not ur bb, that is prob.

Sorry for the order these are going in, I had deleted YAHOO all together so I do not have the conversation when he told me about freddy, but here is his pic. He did end up chatting with my friend towards the end so she was not affected like me... thank God! They sent so many bugs and trujens to my computer, I am glad I do not bank online!!!

Qualms, vexed...just a couple of words he often used...not common in American phrases! Hmmmm??
I am now going to post the stats on these two scammers, If I feel I need to post more conversations, I will later. I found their IP addresses on Spokeo as well as two more pictures of "my sweet Marine..." He also gave me the address to his "agent" who just so happen to be in...Lagos, Nigeria!!! come on, Vexed, wake up!!! wow... here it is:

2 mta6.am0.yahoodns.net 74.6.136.244

THESE ARE FREDDY'S

This is the address he had me send Western Union too...google it, very interesting!

Adegbenro Kunle Azeez, 7 Kogberegbe street islolo lagos state, 23401 Nigeria

HEY VEXED??? NO RED FLAGS YET??? Here are the pics of the poor Marine who is unknowingly involved:







Image


Image

Oh, almost forgot, He wanted me to send 500usd so he could come and see me on "leave" so he instructed me to fill out the leave form he sent to my email and these are the addresses that belong to it. I want to post the form I got, but only have hard copy and I am not sure how to do it.

CAME FROM: Service@usarmy.com

HAD TO RETURN TO: USARMYDEPARTMENTS@MILITARYMAILBOX

Of course I did what he wanted and he got a lot of my personal info!

I just have to say that during this time I was researching the USMC due to the fact that he could tell me nothing about it! In the end, I knew more about the corps than he did...go figure...Semper Fi.
Not only did I get violated by this monster, they are exploiting our military men and women!!! I still think about the man in the pictures...wonder if he is ok, I really feel bad and connected to this man because we are both victims.
It makes me cry to think about him (the real Marine) I am crying right now as a matter of fact... :(

I really have a lot more to post, but want to get this info out to you all asap. I will return with more when I can.
Posting this today has taken a lot out of me emotionally, so I think I better step away for a minute. If anyone has questions or comments, PLEASE REPLY! I could use some insite.
Bye for now, and thanks for taking your time here with me, and remember:

Personal details removed. If you notice any others we may have missed, let us know. Sometimes, my eyes play tricks on me. :ugeek:

I'm sorry that you were scammed, vexed. :( Thank you so much for sticking with us and fixing your computer problems so you could post your scammer. You do not have to be scared of him anymore, as he cannot do anything physical to you to hurt you. You have totally dropped him with no more contact, blocked him, locked down your FB account, and changed your email and chat names. Plus, he changed his details, and moved on.
You have done well on the first step. Now it's on to the recovery phase, and getting yourself back to normal, but a little wiser to the reality that many criminals are trolling social websites, lying about love but only wanting your money. Your swings of emotion will go up and down for awhile as you endured months of abuse and pain from the scammer. The intensity and depth of them will lessen over time. Taking to other survivors, and helping others who come here with kind words, encouragement and caring will go a long way in helping you recover. All the members here are willing to help you through the time ahead looking forward.
If you have any questions, just ask.
If anyone asks you for money on the Internet they are always a scammer, 100% of the time.

Hi Vexed ---

Your post is up and running and I bet you are feeling a little lighter today. It was an excellent post, you did well. I am sorry you were scammed, but now you can move onto the recovery and healing part. Now is the time to start taking care of you, getting lots of rest, eating properly and getting back into real life once again.

You have nothing to fear from your scammer, he's gone, but most importantly, your post with his pictures will help someone else avoid the pitfall with him and become another one of his victims.

As Slappy told you, we are all experienced here, and if there is anything we can do to help you get through all of the healing process, please ask, this site was created to help victims in a non-judgemental way. We are all here for you.

Life does go on after being scammed, and you make your way into a "new" normal way of living. You also now know what to look for so you cannot be scammed again.

I wish you the best,
RF

Thanks to all of you!! Quick work on the removal of personal info, thanks!! I feel better about posting, but looking through all of the pics, and chats made my emotions resurface. I have had a "weepy" day today, but I will be ok. I just have one question; is it normal to feel worse for the Marine than I do for myself? I guess I still have a lot of emotions to sort out here, I am a little dazed and confused~it brings me comfort that this web site is here to help victims. I have been watching youtube videos of our troops having fun singing and dancing...has been bitter~sweet.

Hi Vexed,

Sorry for what you had experienced. And thanks for sharing your scam story. Yes, posting it could be emotionally draining but it helps to lighten the load, your wounded emotion. You did right by dropping your scammer off completely and exposing him here so you could help warn other potential victims too.

You have been emotionally abused and manipulated by this criminal. Now is the time to take care of yourself and love yourself more. You have already taken the first step to healing ----that is to admit that you’ve been hurt and sharing it to us. It may be hard for a few days or weeks and healing may take time but just be patient and eventually you will be okay and come out wiser and stronger. As they said, if you need help with what you’re going through, need some advices, comforting words or a friend ready to listen, feel comfort to know that I am here, we are all here. Take good care of yourself. :)

is it normal to feel worse for the Marine than I do for myself?

Yes, many of our survivors have told us this. They are victims, too, and do not deserve to have their pictures stolen to be used in scams. It is important that victims do not try to contact them, as it usually ends up with more hurt for both of you, plus the chances of even finding the real man in searches means that many more scammers will be alerted that the picture they use is used in scams. Since scammers share and use the same pictures you are far more likely to be contacting another scammer and not the real soldier. The real soldier may be married, or have a girlfriend, and he might not take the news from a victim very well. Leave this to the staff here to handle, as we have the knowledge to explain the scam better to them. This is explained here:
