I have just been writing to custumservice on where I saw him listed as gino2011 - told them what I know sent them some of the pcitures I have, one mail and links to the internet where they can read more about him. They just sent me a mail, wrote they take this very serios and thanked me. They have investigated him/the profile and now - it has been deleted .. I think I will continue to other dating sites too.. I know he will just make knew profiles but they will be aware of this guy whenever we tell them..

Tonight on Badoo, he had 4-5 different profiles, and 2 with the same picture.... Each day, most active scammers have new profiles and they are always in the first profiles... It's terrible.... :lol:

But congrat's for your message, at least if they take this so seriously it's a good new !!!

1. Other Badoo alias:
- http:/ / - 47 year old, "Am Ramos Miller Cassy. I was born on the 13th June, 1962 at Baptist Hospital of Britain". In album he had 2 pics with one child.
- - Aaron, 52 year old guy - from Miami Beach, FL, United States - "My name is Aaron Ramos. I was born on the 8nd of August, 1958 at Baptist Hospital of Miami".
- http:/ / - Kevin Ramos, 48 year old, Florida, CO, United States /Durango, CO, United States: "My name is Kelvin Ramos. I was born on the 30th of Octorber, 1963 at Baptist Hospital of Miami". Appearance:
140cm (<4'7''), <39kg (<86lbs), average body, blond hair and blue eyes :-o

2. other FB alias:
- http:/ /, Ramos Aaron, Worked at Military (Major)Studied at United States Military Academy Lives in Rome, Georgia From New Orleans, Louisiana
- http:/ / as Aaron Jay Ramos, Has worked at U.S.Army
19 friends – all women (victims?)
Pictures used are already posted here.

BTW, I think that they intentionally forget a point or two of their name enter username and the one used for identification (Kevin/Kelvin) or write it wrong (Michael/Micheal) so they can more hardly be found by username...

I've been thinking about this scammer and i think it isn't just one scammer. I think there is a gang of them scamming using this fellow's pictures. Otherwise how could the scammer be able to be on with so many women at the same time? Just a theory.

take care and I hope everyone is well and in good spirits!

Different unrelated Nigerian scammers (meaning, no organised gang) have been using this innocent man´s photographs for their scams. At least, this is the way how these scams are normally run.
Please try your best to block ALL your scammer´s still incoming messages and calls!

What is all this? => The FAQ

The scammers vs. Why is "he" still doing it?

Why is alerting the man in the pictures DANGEROUS?

I am a person that desires honesty and truth. I thoroughly enjoy communication and warm moments...fireplaces, conversations, glass of wine, watching the snow fall....and snuggling. A warm cup of coffee on a cold morning...a walk with hands held together as one......I want to experience new moments, new places, new adventures. I truly desire to be enveloped in the arms of her, who hopefully sees, the many spectacular and heart-melting moments that could be experienced along the pathway of each day. I want to be in the mountains...the lakes...on the boat......on a horse.......away from the hustle and bustle of city in country life. I love helping helping teens/kids. I feel I have compassion and great care towards others. I also know that I am strong, independent and self-sufficient. I hope, that with what I do and accomplish in my lifetime, that I can make a difference in another person's life.
What I am looking for is a "life partner"....a woman that, without a waver, chooses truth and honesty, integrity and commitment...who wants to also make a difference in another's life....a woman who is loving, kind, caring and true....a woman that natures and desires to continuously grow a relationship, makes it her first priority after her relationship with God....a woman that gives and natures as much as I want to give and that possible?...a woman that love others around her unconditionally and unselfishly?......her friends and her family.....I haven't found it yet....but maybe there is such a woman out there in this world with these ideals and attributes, huh?

Another lot with fake profiles:

On as paulalex25- “i seek a honest man with great inner beauty,for beauty is a concept of time, some people gain it with age some people loose it with age, but we all have inner beauty in some form.. Looking for a friend maybe someone that will become my long term partner, someone i can talk to on the same level without being talked down to, someone who is strong minded and can whip me into shape, but at the same time be loving and caring and must love cuddling as i am a very tactile person. I'm looking for someone to go for walks in the country side with, someone to watch lightning on a stormy night or cuddle up on the sofa with a good dvd, someone not afraid to speak her own mind but will listen at the same time, Someone that doesn't mind showing other people how they feel about the one they love and wanting the same in return age doesn't matter, its what you can do with what you have that matters“.

She will not only put up with my wacky moods, but she may even think they are cute, (even if she won't admit it.) The woman I would like to meet is confident and self assured, but doesn't have an over-inflated ego. I am looking for a gal who can keep me on my toes when it comes to intellect and energy. There is nothing that I won't do to support the people I care about, but if I think you are wrong I will tell you and I hope that you would do the same for me. Are you a woman who is filled with surprises? If I hold you in my arms, are you the type that will feel safe and warm? I am looking for the girl that I can get lost in conversation with just as easily as we can share one of those moments of comfortable silence. I love to laugh and joke around. My job is awesome, but home is where my priorities and true happiness are. I want to share both our passions, and hopefully, some new ones we find together. If you enjoy children, and enjoy the outdoors, we already have a lot in common. Have you made it all the way to the end of my profile? GOOD... Drop me a line and let's plan a great adventure”.

I baite him right now... found him on facebook as Aaron Ramos.. ( as some of you know I was scammed by him earlier in another profile Johan Caswell)

This fake one is in Iraq,, he tell me very often what a danger it is to be there.. he wants to be with me instead because he has never felt like this before in his whole life...

After 3 days he have been written all those small messages.

For you I would climb the highest mountain peak Swim the deepest ocean your love I do seek.For you I would cross the rivers most wide,Walk the hottest desert sand to have you by my side.For you are the one Who makes me whole.You've captured my heart and touched my soul.For you are the one that stepped out of my dreams gave me new hope Showed me what love means.For you alone are my reason to live.For the compassion you show and the care that you give.
I love you

Never knew this time would come always wondered when it would be me.When it would be us.But deep inside, faith and hope,yes, these assured.Always dreamed, always prayed,and yes, hoped this day would come.Look into your eyes, and see a reflection of your love,your commitment, your presence,and yes, to hear those words,I love you.Oh! this was meant for me too! for us too!And finally we have made it.Us for life!!! yes, us for life.
Love Ramos...

Holding you so close, in a field of magic love,your eyes are shining brighter than the starlit sky above the flowers that bloom 'round us, they tickle at our feet the river sleeps behind us, the silence is so sweet.The wind blows just so slightly, to tell us that it's there,and to blow the windswept petals, that lovedance in the air.The passion that is bred here is as old as GOD above,but the only way to feel it, is to bring the one you love.And even though this magic field is natures' greatest feat,without you here beside me... the magic's incomplete. Aaron

As you can se he has difficulties to remember what to call himself hehe

And after sending those small messages in mails .. all after only a couple of days.. his undying love for me … crap… this is one of our conversation where he is talking about how I can “help” leave early from the military in Iraq where “ a lot of men die everyday honey, maybe I am the next” ( please be the next haha) I really tried to be very much in love here ;)

Looking for Help!!

Postby concerned_friend » Sun Jun 26, 2011 9:33 pm

On June 24th ABC's 20/20 aired a program about dating scammers. I record the program every week but just happen to walk into my room at the exact moment they had a picture of a man a friend of mine is dating so I quickly sat down and watched it.

Here is what I wrote in the comments on their site after watching......

If anyone reading this can help me I would really appreciate it. I have tried everything. I have a friend she is a special needs person with multiple handicaps and disabilities. She met the same man that was portrayed on 20/20. Jeffery Miller. But in my friends case his name is Sgt. Aaron Ramos. for months I have shown her all the proof she needs to know that she is being scammed. every month she sends money to nigeria. she is convinced her aaron is real and refuses to believe anyone but him. Like i said earlier she is handicaped and not all there, so getting thru to her is impossible. I have seen so many pictures of her so called "Aaron Ramos" and he is absolutly without a doubt the same pictures of the man called "Austin Miller" I all ready knew this was a scam the second I found out my friend was sending money to nigeria. I have done my own searching on the internet over the last few months. I have found over 20 facebook profiles with his picture, I found an army dating scam site and his picture was in the top 10 scammers. I have talked to other women who have had contact with him and they sent me emails, photos, x-mas cards, you name it. i have shown all of this to my friend. I even made her watch last nights 20/20. All she can say to me is...... That is not my Aaron, I didnt meet him on I met him on a diff site. She is so in love with this man and he has her totally convinced she is the one. to this day she is still sending packages and money to Nigeria. It is breaking me heart to watch this but I do not know how to convince her she is being scammed. If she had normal intelligence like most of us I would say "I give up" she can learn the hard way. But its not the case she is mentally handicapped and the nirerians are taking her to the cleaners all the while they have her absolutly convinced Aaron Ramos is real and he loves her and he is coming home to her. If there is someone out there reading this and can help me help my friend please write back.

Below is as much info as I could gather up on this man
here are his facebook links ... ref=search ... ref=search ... ref=search

his pictures....

Im at a loss on how to help her. Just talked to her again last night and the only thing she had to say to me was thank you for your concern but my Aaron wouldnt do this. For months he has been telling her he is coming home, he gives her a date ( it is usually just after the first of the month when she recieves her disability checks.) those dates come and go and each time it is one excuse after another as to why he isnt leaving. Then he hits her up for more money to get home. I would have given up on her a long time ago had she been a person of sound mind. I also realize you cant help someone who doesnt want the help. I need to try to figure out how to make her see the light. how do i open her eyes? oh by the way Aarons next projected date to come home is July 5th.
