I have been scammed by this man also but his name is Philip Diaz, Met a man on Tinder called Philip Diaz, said he was working at Linton Military camp here in NZ and called me on video chat with his friend Billy to make sure i was ligit then told me he was in US Army, then a few days later video called me again to say he was being deployed and showed at the barracks for all the US army men now leaving during the call, stopped and said hi to a few soldiers who said hi back to me?. A few days later contacted me from Syria to say they had been set up by local soldiers and ambushed, his best friend Billy had been killed and he sent me warzone photos and begged for me to help him get out of there and came up with a plan for me to email firstname.lastname@example.org
to request urgent leave , to say he was my fiance and that my dad had been diagnosed terminally ill. From there is was sent a form and he said he was contacted and leave had been approved but then needed help to get airfare of USD$5,000 as this was not an ordinary leave request so was not covered by army. When i said i didn't have money like that he got aggressive and that's when the blackmailing started - he had put together photos and videos from when we had been talking and having phone sex that i was not aware of and started downloading everything to youtube, he had also sent me screenshots that he had found my facebook page, added alot of my friends using a fake profile and was going to send the link to all of them, my job, my kids, my grandkids school etc, so the blackmail started, and i let myself get manipulated back into his web of lies as i truely believed he was in danger, he sent me his bank account link and user log in which shows he has plenty of money but could not make any transfers because he could not receive bank text messages with codes in warzone, so i kept transferring money for flights, PTA, then he had money and gold he needed to send to me for safekeeping while he was still in the warzone, sent a website link with tracking number that was updated regular, then which of course got held up in customs in syria, then he needed bribe money and sent me a customs form showing only one had signed and needed more bribe money to have the other sign, and now he's been arrested and held by customs jail and needs the last of bribe money to get out and i have no more options to borrow money for him so have called it quits and he has advised i have 48 hours (which now is less than 24 hours) to send the last USD$2,000 so he can finish the bribe or he will upload again to youtube, make it worse than it was before and then hang himself. - i have since discovered he is also scamming other ladies internationally under the names of Roland Diaz and Hewitt Diaz since June and is back on tinder as Mark . i am bamboozled as the man in the photos he sends me as well as what i found on facebook for the other alias's is the same man i saw when video chatting and the videos he has sent me from the warzone was the same voice as i spoke with on the phone - ?????
