I believe this same person is now using maccrthy nicholas <email@example.com
> and firstname.lastname@example.org
(when I questioned why I got the 2 requests on YM he said the second was an old account...same avatar image different angle) Under the first email I got the same basic story and pictures. I am still waiting verification that the email addresses are ones of scammer (by another means) but after seeing this, I am almost certain it is!
text from email:
I work in the US Army as a peace keeping soldier. Even at this moment of being in communication with you, am on a mission with my troops here in Libya now. We've been here 8 months 2 weeks now and will be out back to the STATE in 8 weeks times because am working on my retirement paper
I'm a citizen of Italy but was brought to USA at the age of 12 years old, Due to the lost of my parent at the early age my uncle was the one who take care of me then .
I lived in Ohio But ready to relocate when I find that my special woman in my life,Someone who is ready to build a happy home with me and show the real man in me .
I fought in the gulf war to liberate Kuwait from autocratic rule of the
late Saddam. I had a pretty bad experience. I am also an E-8 Staff
Sergeant (SSG) . I also act as a platoon sergeant in the absence of the Sergeant First Class.
I am the leader of my squad. I am a non-commission
officer and I work in the junior management of the military. As matter of
fact sounds great communicating with you back home and me back here in
Libya and hope things get to change from one stage to another.. Actually,
we are not allowed to communicate with outsiders because of security
reasons but I need a woman for myself as my retirement is just very close
and can't be home all alone. A woman that will be there for me and I will
be there for her too. I will not be able to call you because we are not
allowed to communicate with outsiders on phone. Everything is monitored.
