Yes. It´s an anonymous Nigerian criminal gang, with many fake profiles. The information we know so far is all posted above. Other users will keep adding what they know. Which email address did you know them by?

His email address is xxx. What do you suggest that I do???? He has my email address and he knows my phone number. He has two profiles on facebook. One under Tom Ferars and one under Ferars Smile. He is claiming to be a soldier in the army.

The pictures that is posted on his facebook account is the same pictures that were posted on this site back in November. The picture is of a white male with a red shirt on and a cap on his head. The other picture is of him in a vest with the thumbs up on his right hand. That is the email address that he gave me to send emails to him.
This is one of the first of the feww messages I received from him on FB

I ask for a mailing address and the one that he gave me was:

Amobi Grace Obakeng
264 Willowcrest, Sagewood Avenue
noordwyk midrand
Johannesburg, South Africa 1685

But he says that he is in Kandahar on a mission for the army but his mail can be delivered from this Africa address
to his location

I sent 310 dollars by western onion for a phone to this address:
Olaoye femi Kenneth
Sunnyside
Petoria Africa

the number that he calls from is 278-4855-56923
I am a total dumb___

Must be an accomplice in South Africa then. The email Marisa had received from him in November was from Nigeria. it is definitely one gang since the email addy is the same. Or the criminal has moved since November. He surely has enough money...
The 310 are gone. You are lucky it was not more. :( Have a read here. viewtopic.php?p=294048#p294048 just half an hour ago.

What do you mean by "he had enough money"? Did Marisa send money to him? Why did she report him as a scammer? Was it because his email IP address was from Nigeria? I hear that the army has a base in Nigeria, is this true?

1. He can afford to travel.
2. No
3. Because he is a scammer.
4. among other things
5. Sure they have army in Nigeria.
I smell disbelief in your questions :(

I didn't send him money of course, but besides me and you he has dozens of other victims.

If a white man approaches you online, but he is in Nigeria or Ghana this is always 100% scam. Sooner you realize it the better.

Please get yourself familiar with Nigerian scams, read this section:

Not trying to be a smart--- but if he has so many other victims then why have they not reported on this web site? I was just simply asking quesitons so that I can educate myself and be aware and alert of these scammers. It Makes me sick to my stomach to hear all of this :(

Why haven't you reported other military scammers now that you can spot them ?
