UPDATE: This Ain’t Hell writes about who you can contact if you believe you have been scammed and the person is posing as a US military member.

Lately, we’ve been getting a lot of traffic to our posts on the dating scams being perpetrated by Nigerian scammers upon unsuspecting women around the world. What makes these scams so appalling is that they assume the identities of military personnel supposedly stationed in Iraq or Afghanistan. They troll internet dating sites and reel women along for months before springing the scam and asking for money.

Recently, the name Festus Smith, Kells Kline, Billy Farris, Steven Gaines, and others. After writing about the Festus Smith fraud, he decided to leave a comment on this blog.

Interestingly, a “woman” named Jennifer accompanied Festus to the site and also began leaving comments, in the same broken English that all these Nigerian scammers use. It’s hilarious when they use this poor grammar and spelling but tell their victims they are full bird Colonels. Here’s one from “Colonel Billy Farris”:

Then Talking about my Job…I Graduated from the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst and held a Degree in Masters of Military Arts and Science from the Army Command and General Staff College,Fort Leavenworth,Kansas .Then I worked for the Military and later Got promotions becoming an Officer..I was Deployed to Iraq and later Transferred to head my Squadron and the Special forces team in Afghanistan. .I was the Former Commander of the 82nd Airborne Division,Fort Bragg ,NC .Which I was Just transferred to the Pentagon and also Active Duty Mission in Kabul,Afghan.
Sending a pic of me also 🙂

Bill Farris 🙂

First of all, Colonels don’t command Divisions, Generals do. Second, we don’t “later Got promotions becoming an officer.”

Anyway, this “Jennifer” person is trying to provide Festus with an alibi and make out others to be supposed frauds.

Notice anything interesting about those two comments, other than the terrible English spelling and grammar? Check out the IP addresses! Then, pay attention to what is says AFTER the IP.

Ladies, don’t fall for these scams. Real troops ALL have military email accounts. If they tell you otherwise, it’s a scam. If they ask you for money, it’s probably a scam. If you’re unsure if the guy you’ve been hooking up with online through a dating site is actually in the military, ask him to send you an email from his military email account. There is nothing illegal or wrong with this. If they say they aren’t allowed to use their military email for this purpose, they’re lying to you and you should drop them like a ton a bricks from a Chinook!
