Hello xxx, thanks for allowing me communicate with you and hope we make everything into reality soon, I have to admit that I like you after reading through your profile and I believe that our meeting was not by chance. I got on this online platform with help of an Australian army ISAF Lavender colleague as a way of finding the woman of my life since my work nature kept me extremely busy. I thought it was wise starting to get a date for marriage; my priority is to find that special woman like you in my life to get acquainted and I hope destiny brought us together for better future. Three traits I offer my woman are kindness, loyalty and passion. My name is Robert Gutseriyev, working as a Major in British Army; I was born 2nd February 1964 at Naryan-Mar, Nenets Okrug Russia. My parents are both Russian migrants to United Kingdom. I was educated at University of Birmingham and Royal College of British Army Defense Studies respectively. I was commissioned into the Green Howards from Sandhurst in 1984 when I was 21years, served with the 1st Battalion in Hong Kong, Germany and Libya, after working in the Ministry of Defense, returned to upper rank after several years in the Battalion as a company commander.

I have been in England almost all my life; I am hard working and very friendly. I cook very well because that is my hobby. I’m an avid athlete due to my work nature I train almost every day, having played most sports at one time or another just to keep fit for my work, everything from Adventure racing to rugby and lift weights. I’m not in a hurry to find the love of my life, but I don't want to wait for months or more years because life is too short to spend it alone. The passion, beauty and excitement of being with the one I love is so wonderful. I'm looking for a serious partner who is understanding, compassionate, and a soul-mate of my half who will complete me and let me complete her as well, a woman that will love me for who I am and let me love her with all my heart and soul, a lifetime part to grow with me and stand by me through the good times as well as the bad, who truly wants to be a wife; believes in the sanctity of marriage, and totally devoted to her man – 50/50 equal right in relationship. I send you my photos and expect you send me yours as well - I want to know all about you and what you do for work? What is your full name? How old are you? What do you do for fun? What do you do for a living or your occupation? Tell me about your past relationship if married before? How long did your last relationship last? Do you have kids? What is your best color? What is your best food? Do you live alone or on your own - explain? Do you smoke? Do you drink?

My Dearest xxx, I am very happy to read from you - thanks for your lovely photos. I have been extremely busy with my troops off camp due to recent happenings, roadside bomb kills at least 12 civilians in Helmand province Marjah district, largely a Taliban stronghold. I think it is very important sharing more details exactly how I feel, what I think with my own opinion and expect you to express yourself as well to enable me get to know and discover us, feel accepted with each other. What is the one dream for your life you most look forward to having come true? What do you think are the three best traits you have to offer a partner? For me, a long, healthy retirement with enough money to do a little traveling, enjoy grandchildren, and volunteer in the community. I'd love to take classes in a bunch of different topics from financial to forensics. My best traits would be loyalty, patience and demonstrating love.

I am very happy meeting you and I believe that God is about to wipe my tears after losing my wife about four years ago; My wife died in auto crash while I was away on mission to Iraq. It is hard to generally socialize outside of the military community since I’m a widower with a child and my peers are pretty much all married with children. Seeing as I'm heading back home in about two months for my evacuation, that also gives me a 'different' perspective. I’m passionate about making a difference, I believe that everyone has a responsibility to give back to their community and those that benefit more from it have a greater obligation. I have been in the army for more than 28 years; I will be evacuating for my retirement but waiting approval from the MOD. I thought it was wise starting to get a date for marriage. I’m currently deployed ISAF Resolute Support Mission in Kabul Afghanistan.

Due to the nature of work here in Kabul in accordance to our British military code of conduct, I can’t visit the site often as I have found you, to refrain from any intruding message from other members and also for my security sake to avoid any problem from the British government as well as the Taliban's interference in my data. I will deactivate and delete my profile off the site and would like you to delete yours also for our mutual acquaintance in family value; what do you think? I’m the child of my Roman Catholics parents and my accent varies due to I have traveled to several countries of the world. My Mum, She and my Dad worked hard to bring me up. My father died when I was only 24 years; my mother was carrying everything all along; she’s been a wonderful woman and a great mother that I so much love, my mother was the best woman in my world apart for my late wife who was my motivator. She brought me up very well in the ways to be of great man and to be strong, to whom I am today by working for humanity; she carried on working full time until she was surviving cancer and a heart attack. She never gave up on life and our family until the last day of her life; my mother passed away after been aged and weakened, she was 79 years before death. My son Matthew 16 years studying foreign languages and information technology in his England affiliated school, he will be more than happy to have a wonderful woman like you, and we will make our family a better place. The most important thing is for us to be transparent with each other, always try to make an amendment if anyone of does something wrong and with better understanding. Two most important things loyalty and honesty, without these you have nothing - speaking about our common future, discovering the interest of our kids and how to help them achieve those things that they think are difficult to them. I believe that our meeting was not by a chance or accident but it was predestined by God so that together we would be able to discover God's plan for us. I desire a woman you in my life to be the woman that makes my life complete; I hope that the days will come when I will be able to spend my every waking moment with you.

I was looking on google's image to find out who he really is and it leads me to this website, the last post about this person was 2017, but it is already 2019, so I thought I might update this because he might be going to victim someone else.

He was messaging me on my Instagram and asked me to go on hangouts, he was pretending that he is in the Army in Syria and would finish November 2019. I already suspected him as a scammer but I carried on so I can really find out. And when he started talking about money, that proved my doubts.
