He was an elderly man who told me that he and his wife had identity issues and he never heard of the third party bank the check was cut from. I called the sender of the check and told him it cleared but I was keeping the money.
We talked for about two days, before he gave me the story about bad food over there, and he needed money to buy American food, and it was expensive.
He asked me to send him 0...which I have not done. This is person on facebook claiming to be General Stephen Townsned. He is trying to scam people like myself, says he is in love with me and wants to meet me and spend the rest of his life with me.
First he said send it Western Union,then he said no, send it through Money Gram. Want me to sent him lots of money for flight to come here and meet me and marry me.
Same person claiming to be General Townsend, born in Griffin Georgia, and is overseas fight the war.......wanted me to send two I-tunes cards because he's not able to have any money and can't access his bank while there..........hmmmmm go figure He's is also in love with me and wants us to be together when he gets back to the states......................
Supposedly the vehicle and money was being held in Italian customs and another email came stating I had to pay 5k if I wanted the vehicle and money shipped to me.
The whole time I am in contact with my man, Christopher Anton Raymond (whose name is not real), and he begs me to pay the money because he now was arrested for money laundering too. He is on KIK, keeps contacting me and says when he gets home, I will see he is not fake and I will regret treating him this way.after 8 weeks of daily contact I said no and said he was a scammer. He called me and as soon as I heard his voice I knew he was a scammer. His said that the military camp was close to Syria homes. I look at what is in back ground of pictures for info. Just shows how sick there mind is to think this way. He said he was from NY and ee were talking 2 months when he said he got the contract deal to mine for gold and diamonds in Dubai.He is still contacting me saying him loved me and I have made it clear I’m sending no money, His name is Kev but he likes to be addressed as Wilson.. He then told me that all he could do was think about me. Lot's of time they back east but on my same time zones. A month later, he gave me the good news of recieving his pay for the job and the vehicle that came with the contract.Wish they could be caught half as easily as they seem to catch their would be victims.I also met this gentleman on the TAGG website, who calls himself Johnson Smith.I work at a credit union - and have member's falling for these types of scams regularly. The man who scammed me money three years ago, contact me again, he said he was sorry and will repay the money to me. My case was reported to police three years ago, but finally closed file by police for further investigation impossible.
