He said he comes from Charleston, West Virginia.
After a day he said he loved me and wanted to visit me quickly, but for that he needs financial help, cause his credit card was misplaced and he can't get a new one till he is back in America and that I had to apply for his release, that he can come over.

He also has a profile under Kingsley Burleson on Twitter. There are several other profiles under different names and when he messaged me and I asked him about his other profiles he immediately blocked me.

Thank you for your update, Marnye23.

If you have any additional details (his email address, other stolen pictures he uses) please add it to this topic.

In this way you might help other potential victims talking with the same scammer while not being aware that they are targeted.

Brantleyjoe128 - TikTok

Unread postby AnneD » Tue Feb 23, 2021 7:36 pm

This man is also on the prowl on TikTok. He goes by Brantleyjoe128. He was chatting with me, and it seemed innocent enough at first, but I quickly noticed slips in grammar like English wasn't his first language. Then he started lovebombing me. His story there is that he's in Turkey, close to retirement, etc. His first wife cheated on him and is a drug addict. No kids. Willing to relocate..
This is the second scammer to try and get in touch with me and I should also mention the second one to want to use google hangouts for chatting and also the second one to ask questions designed to learn your passwords and answers to security questions (i.e. what's your favorite color, flower, food).
His email address had an entirely different name from his scam name. Another flag.

I've got an email address he was using to get into google hangouts. daveclock128@gmail.com He had a fancy explanation for the different name. He said he gave himself that nickname in college. His username in hangouts is "bar bad". He said his grandfather gave him that nickname.
Also, I'd like to add that there are some videos on his tiktok that make you pause when you feel something is weird. Two are of him in his car talking about how you can't help some people, and the other is talking about his hair and eyebrows, joking around. He is in uniform in both. Another of him walking with other soldiers at nighttime and the one that really kept trying to get at me- Homecoming for Thanksgiving. He surprised his family and the reunion was filmed. I'm not sure if these videos are also stolen or if technology was used to make them. Nothing would surprise me anymore. He sent me quite a few photos, but I can't seem to make them small enough to post them. I think mostly they have, because they all showed up in my google search.

There's something else I just remembered (I didn't save my conversations, because I blocked him and deleted the hangout app asap.) he told me that he made extra money doing "forex trading". I had never heard of this, and he explained it was purchasing currency and trading it for another and making profit off it. He even had graphs to show me. I figured that was the "here comes the request for money or offer to help me make money doing this" (I googled it, it's a real thing, but still, don't give people money!) This might be important to the next person. Dang, there were other little red flags as well, but I can't remember them all. I think the big ones I've mentioned should give someone enough info to help them though.
