WHAT MAKES A SCAM? part 1
Proof that one scammer (= one email address, one fake US phone number) uses different men photos/identities, often even male AND female, to scam men either, over several sites and chat apps across the internet.
And actual reports from victims, who have lost hopes, lifetime and money.

A question just pop out.

1. will the scammers use our photo and story to scam on other guys?
2. what should we do to prevent it?
1. Unlikey, if you ignore them; if you don´t, they are likely to continue scam YOU when they find this bother you (it shouldn´t)
2. Tough question. Not accept too many "friend requests" from unknown but strikingly good-looking and/or military internet people, i.e. not share every picture with anybody (even if this quite against the business concept of social sites per se); but actually, there is little that prevent scammers from getting photos. Professional photographers often watermark their work, a thing that is not too hard to do automatically with free image editing software such as IrfanView.
