Yet another attempted scam tonight. :evil: What is it with me? do I have 'scam me' on my profile ?? :oops: 4th one in a month. This one has been reported to match.com this evening (17/10/2014). He is not aware that I have checked the photographs but there are many pictures of the same serviceman on the internet that have been used in scams.

The story I got this evening, is that he is in the UK Navy, that his name is Arnold Ruddock, and he is using the screen name 'faithfulman03'on match.com as I write this (like I said, I have reported it). The profile says he is 5'9" tall, divorced, living in Birmingham, UK. The email address he is using is arnoldruddock@gmail.com. . He started off ok, chatting on match.com but when conversation speeded up a little, his grammar and spelling deteriorated.

The scammer using this email address is located in Ghana. The format used is a romance scam - the scammer claiming to be an US general on duty in Afghanistan, with a son at school in the UK. After romancing her, he told the victim he had boxes with money he want to send in the victim's country. Of course, for receiving the boxes, the victim was asked to pay for some documents. In the meantime, the general's son had an accident and was hospitalized, being in urgent need for a surgery. For performing that surgery the so called UK doctor requested also money. Step by step, after two months and a half - under a siege of emails received every day and Skype conversations in the same time, the victim lost $15,000. All the payments were done using Western Union. Because of that, the victim has no chance to recover any of the money she lost. To cover her debts caused by the scammer, the victim will be forced to sell her house. Despite the fact the victim contacted the local Police, it is not much that can be done: the scammer is in a country, the victim in another one and no police has jurisdiction overseas...

This scammer/group of scammers were operating slightly different as the most African scammers previously reported. They made fake documents using the victim's native language and not English and most of the messages sent to the victim were written in the victim's native language. Through the fake documents used, it is even a marriage certificate the scammer "manufactured" for convincing the victim they are married...
