X-Originating-IP: [41.218.246.46] accra, ghana
From: Gerry Brown <gerrybrown1965@yahoo.com>

Sweetheart,
First, I want to explain my job in a simple manner so that you understand(maybe this asshole thinks that i am stupid.. :twisted: ). A Staff Sergeant is the Boss of all Noncoms (Non commissioned Officers), and acts as the bridge between the Officer Corps (from Lieutenants up and Lower level Soldiers starting from Drill Sergeants etc. The staff sergeant will often have one or more sergeants who work under his direct leadership. The staff sergeant is responsible for their continued successful development as well as that of other soldiers in the section, squad or team. If Noncoms are “The Backbone” of the Army, then staff sergeants are the elements of which backbones are made. The complexities of the job of the staff sergeant increases as the responsibilities broaden. The staff sergeant’s professional competence is measured by how well the staff sergeant develops, maintains and uses the full range of human potential of his soldiers. The staff sergeant’s success, more than any other grade of the NCO rank, leads the path to the Army’s success, and the footprints you will see behind those of our greatest military leaders are probably those of a staff sergeant, where he stood confident, proud and eager to assist. My Job could be likened to that of a foreman/Supervisor in a large Corporation.
I came to Iraq in June 2003; I have had 4 tours of 12 months each and 1 tour of 15 months (my current which will end in July 2010).

I love my job. A Soldier’s job is to kill the enemy. But a Good Staff Sergeant must work hard to save lives… His Soldiers’ lives! He does that by giving the raw recruit the best training and equipment that the US Army can provide. My saddest moment is when I have to prepare body bags for the final journey home…

Many aspects of my job are classified and therefore I cannot discuss troop dispositions, strengths, locations, assignments, etc. But I can discuss a broad range of topics regarding the US Military in Iraq ; please feel free to pose any questions.

Please see attached my photo album. I hope you will send me yours? I will appreciate it. Because of the nature and pressure of my work as a Staff Sgt., I am not able to chat as often as I would like...Most of my time as you would understand is devoted to military duties, round the clock... I will also appreciate your emails. These will more than help to keep my spirit up, in a war zone which is most stressful, and downright boring.

I will look forward to your reply. Please tell me as much of yourself as you possibly can. Please write me a long email! Next, I will write you about my background and how I came to join the US Army…

Finally the demands of my job as a Staff Sgt. in a war zone ( Iraq ), require 100% attention to my military duties. Even when I am online, most times, I am exchanging routine military data with my Commanding Officers. I point this out because you might wonder why I do not chat with you even when I am clearly visible online…
In order to bridge this gap, I respectfully request your mobile phone (NOT land based telephone) so that I can send you text messages whenever time permits. Please kindly send your mobile line in a complete format, starting with +Country code plus mobile line. I pledge as an officer and a gentleman that I will never abuse your mobile (cell) phone.

All my love,
Gerry Brown
Multinational Force, Baghdad , Iraq

I got the same crap from this pest: same format and pictures. Interesting header though, a bit different from yours:

X-Originating-IP: [41.218.242.217]
From: Gerry Brown <gerrybrown1965@gmail.com>
Sender: <gerrybrown1965b@hotmail.com>

he gave me email gerrybrown1965b@hotmail.com, that's where I wrote, but apparently he wants replies to be delivered to gerrybrown1965@gmail.com :thinking:

His next format:


Sweetheart,
As promised, I have decided to give you details of my background.
I was born on 2nd February, 1965, in Los Angeles. I was one of a family of 5. My Father and Mother worked in the US State Department, and that was how I was uprooted immediately after Grade School, first to far away Australia, and then to London, UK, where I spent most of my childhood and teen years. My parents are now retired and currently live in London, where they have long made their “home”.

In February 1985, after my 20th birthday, I informed my father that I wanted to join the US Army, and he did not hesitate. I had my basic Army training at the NTC facility at Fort Irwin, California. After my training, I remained in the US, and in 2003, I was deployed to Iraq. It was my first military duty tour abroad, and I was very excited to be in the vanguard of those sent to bring down the international bad man, Saddam Hussein. In the beginning, it was a straight forward military assignment, and the objective of capturing Saddam Hussein was met and his regime overthrown.

Then the US embarked on Iraqi nation building and that was when it went sour. More US troops have been killed by the insurgent activities of the many terrorist groups in Iraq, notably the Al Qaida. IEDs( Improvised explosive devices) also known as road side bombs have been responsible for over 50% of US military casualties, more than we lost during the actual war! There is currently a draw down of troops who are sent home and then redeployed to Afghanistan. According to the Army bulletin, All US troops (minus a few divisions who will take care of our Embassy and other Assets) will leave Iraq by end of 2011.

Because of security reasons, I am reluctant to discuss my job details in Iraq, but believe me, it is a pressure cooker! I may be 45, but I feel 60 years at 2300 hours each day. But I am doing my duty, and as a patriotic American, I signed on to defend my Country! So, like any old Soldier, I live for the moment, and proudly American!
In 1997, while on a routine military training in Fort Bragg, NC, I met and fell in love with my wife Sandy, a British Au Pair with great family values. But it was not to be. The marriage lasted 4 years, and in 2001, she divorced me and got custody of my twin boys; I got visitation rights though, and I know in my heart, the boys will join the US Army, at the proper time.
You can therefore understand that I was a bit relieved to ship out to war in Iraq, in 2003… but now, I feel so lonely and at times almost heartbroken… Because there is a great void in my life, which only a good woman can fill… I need you in my life! I want you in my life! I desire you in my life!
I understand that I am not doing a great job in my current attempt at courtship. This is because I have almost a 24 hour job in Iraq, and because duty comes first, I cannot devote time to chat with you and get to know you better… My current duty tour will end in early July, and it is my intention to travel to meet you…Please do not, for a moment, think that I am taking you for granted; IT IS UP TO YOU TO DECIDE MY FATE NOW! DO YOU WANT ME IN YOUR LIFE? I need to know, one way or another so that I start making travel arrangements, or lick my wounds… Please, Sweetheart, reply now!

All my love,

Gerry Brown
Multinational Force, Baghdad, Iraq

Greetings! I am new here on the site and I was shocked that there is a scam report about this person, Gerry Brown, because he sent me same message and pictures as well. I tried to search his email address on facebook to really find his identity but found a search result on facebook that is why I learned this site. I am kinda impress with his message but afraid because of what was written here. I am new on dating sites and joined only because I wanted to have my partner. May I ask how will I know if a person is a scam. To be honest, I am afraid of being on the dating site but I guess I need to take the risk for me to find my partner. Thank you so much and forgive me if I have posted my questions here. I do not know where to place my question.

Again, thank you so much.

Nono, that is perfectly fine, since it is related to a scammer who has taken advantage of the same innocent man´s photo gallery.

You might want to read in the Important Information forum first. It contains info how to recognize scammers in short form.
And thousands of examples you can find in all the other sections.

So, after a few weeks, I am sure you would recognize scam signs very easily. You might not imagine that right now but I´m sure you will, after some education on how scams work. Welcome.

You are welcome :-o would you have expected something different? It took 12 minutes though ;)

Can you post "your" scammer´s phone number and email IPs (see Welcome PM what an "email headers" is and how to get them - it´s easy once one has learnt it)? The latter will hopefully prove you that your scammer is in fact writing from (mos tlikely scenario) Nigeria.

Oh, and the payment details he might have given you. Everything helps.

Hi Again. I am so sorry for replying so late. I read some of tips to know if I am dealing with scammer that I have learned from this site. Hopefully, I will be on the right track soon after I have read anything here.

Below is the exact message that he has sent me. I did not post the pictures anymore because it is exactly the same.

Sweetheart,

Because of the fact that I am a serving military Officer, I had to use an assumed name to register at the dating site. My real name is GERRY BROWN. Sorry about any inconveniences.

First, I want to explain my job in a simple manner so that you understand. A Staff Sergeant is the Boss of all Noncoms (Non commissioned Officers), and acts as the bridge between the Officer Corps (from Lieutenants up and Lower level Soldiers starting from Drill Sergeants etc. The staff sergeant will often have one or more sergeants who work under his direct leadership.

The complexities of the job of the staff sergeant increases as the responsibilities broaden. The staff sergeant’s professional competence is measured by how well the staff sergeant develops, maintains and uses the full range of human potential of his soldiers. The staff sergeant’s success, more than any other grade of the NCO rank, leads the path to the Army’s success, and the footprints you will see behind those of our greatest military leaders are probably those of a staff sergeant, where he stood confident, proud and eager to assist. My Job could be likened to that of a foreman/Supervisor in a large Corporation.

Fantastic :) Putting the header into the tool and we get 41.218.236.248 Ghana (Accra)
So I got it half-right.

So the "Iraq soldier" is busy in a Ghana internet cafe.
