Now, for anyone that knows anything about the Army uniform, knows that this is NOT an officer’s uniform. No explanation about why the name and email address are different.These are supposedly of someone going by the name Tom Curtis. Because of the size of each photo, they were obviously taken from either a My Space or Facebook page. These are supposedly of a” Lieutenant Colonel Benjamin Lanois” from Cleveland North Carolina…and is presently stationed in Afghanistan in a “very dangerous are” in Kabul and that he is with the Second Falcon Bridge Combat Team 82 SF Base. Probably tired of creating new Yahoo accounts and keeping up with them. Says he was in 24 years, wants to retire and marry his victims and has money aplenty.I’ve seen that last photo used in other scams as well. It happens once in a while but I know how to control myself. Again, if someone says they need you to pay for communications, it’s a scam. It can also be taken out of their paychecks automatically if they “don’t have cash on them”. He said he was from CA studied at West Point, been in the Army for 15 years. They always say they’re coming home soon so that when something goes terribly awry, they can bilk you for sympathy money for hospital clearances and all that crap.These photos are supposedly of a Captain Steven Massingale Barrett. I helped her in her work, support her family, spending much time with her as much as I could. In the army, if you can’t control your anger, you gonna end up fighting all the time. The other 3 are supposedly the same person and goes by the name SGT. The interesting thing about these photos is that the scammer actually took the time to remove the name tags from the photo. The first 4 photos are of a young James Ruddock and his family.
Here's what they've found are the ingredients in the typical scam profile.
If you have a photo that is being used to scam women by using photos of military personnel, send to cj[at]soldiersperspective[dot]us and I will update this post.
Eventually, women will be able to come here and SEE that the photos are being used on multiple women.
Let’s get started…This post will be updated as photos are submitted to me.
