I met this guy on match.com as weller mccarthy- stating he is a Sgt Major getting out of the Army soon after 20 years and coming from Afghanistan. He spells as English is not his first language, tho he claims it is. He asked me to buy him a laptop and a gold watch after declaring love at first sight and undying devotion. He sent the same pix you have here and that is how I recognized him. I work in the Federal Govt and Military in Information Acquisition - did he not think at some point he would be found out ?! Wow. When I would NOT buy him a laptop he claimed he would get one from "his Diplomat" - cough. I let him know I had found his information and there was complete silence at his end. Please pass this on - shameful to abuse the Military like this. There ARE people who serve honorably.

This dude sure gets around. "Charlie" started chatting with me on Match the day before yesterday (he had one photo posted and it was different). Said he was new to the site, had just signed up the night before. We started trading emails and he kept encouraging me to chat with him on Yahoo messenger.

In this version, the guy was a 49 YO mechanical engineer with the US Navy and stationed in Kabul, getting ready to retire and come home in a couple of weeks. Divorced 6 years ago, no kids. Loved swimming. He was asking me general Qs at first (what do I like to do for fun, do I go to church and what is my level of spirituality, etc). When I went to Match this morning, his profile was no longer available (imagine that! So, no way to save/share the pro pic he used). That was a huge flag right there; why would anyone just start on a site then hide his profile?

I can tell you his user name this time around is Flowers 9625 and his email is seapassion24@yahoo.com (the IP traced back to CA, not FL - where he supposedly was from). Unlike others experience on here, his grammar was pretty good (maybe someone more educated started using this dude's photo). He did start in with the "I want to get to know you better" and "let's use Yahoo Messenger so we can get to know each other better" yada, yada, yada. Curious, I messaged him for confirmation of my feelings, see if he would push. And he did. When he asked me where I was born, I replied I "felt I was rattling on about myself; I'd like to learn more about you." He gave a quick comment about how he liked to hike and go ice skating - then zeroed right back in on where I was born. Bingo! I told him I had to take a call, I'd chat later and now I am blocking him and going to see if I can report him/his new username to Match. I'm fairly new to this online dating thing, but two dudes so far wanting me to go on Messenger (never got to the email stage with the first one) is making it hard to trust the few decent guys actually on the site. And I will tell Match this when I cancel with them.

Thanks everyone ! Let's keep the pressure on! I have reported him to Match and then he jumped over to Chemistry.com as Dennis and tried to get on my phone through tumbler and another app - BE CAREFUL. I realized it was him when he texted me through those apps and said "Oh you shut down your Match account , cute... did you think I wouldn't find you? " So now I have him blocked completely , but he seems frustrated that he has been found out and also sees nothing wrong at the same time - a true scam man and sociopath type imo. What is strange is that Match would take NO responsibility and would not find his IP address and shut him down. Shame on them. I will keep checking here and again thank you so very much for all postings.The truth matters!

So, I've been talking to this same guy or at least the guy in the picture for a week. Surprisingly there has been no asking for funds or anything else.... I was just waiting knowing deep down he is a scammer. But... I decided to look it up on here and sure enough here are the same pictures. Just different name and emails used. Going to share what I have as of August 10 2015. He is now using the name Chris Sergio Woodford. From Carson, CA. He is 50 and deployed in Syria on a Peacekeeping mission by the UN and so far there for 2 years. He claims to have lost his wife and daughter in a car accident. He says he moved to the states when he was 5 with his mother and lived in Carson, CA. But moved to Spain with a family member for a while before joining the Navy. Where he retired from before being asked to do the peacekeeping mission. And the same for me as all the other posts. The English language isnt fluid and was the first sign for me. He has sent many pictures which I am including only the ones that are not already on the this web sight. Always do your homework ladies.... protect yourself. No one else will.

Email address using is: sea.blue73@yahoo.com also his yahoo messenger name. As well as brown.eyes6009@gmail.com (claims to not enjoy using Hangouts, prefers yahoo).

So I've been emailing and texting a guy who tells me his name is Nathan Scott. His story says he is an E-9 in the US Army and ready to retire w/i the next 6 weeks. I looked up one of his assignments and this big scammer alert popped up. I read the story and it was almost verbatim what he wrote me. There were other red flags as well....not having access to a his military e-mail because the Taliban hack into their system yada yada yada. He sent me a picture of the nice looking clean cut guy on this site (whom I wouldn't mind meeting, by the way...lol). I met him on Match.com and he was the FIRST person I started emailing. I wrote Match about him and they said if I didn't have his username and email they couldn't do anything, but they would investigate. I gave them what I remembered. He closed out his acct on Match, so I cant remember the whole username. I did confront him ...I didn't know not to initially and then I came upon this site.
We all live and learn. I'm glad I listened to my gut and did some investigating. I just wanted others to know there is another alias to add to the list.
