Pictures and name are stolen from REAL, MARRIED man James Edward Holley - former US Navy, currently actor, musician, performer.
RPO=>>facebook.com/james.e.holley
and=>>http://herald-dispatchblogs05.blogspot. ... olley.html




I have been talking to a man who claims his name is David Joe Holley, in the US Army stationed in Damascus, Syria. He sent many long and detailed emails to me from address davidholley688@gmail.com. He fell in love within days and proclaimed his love and plan to retire in the next month and come 'home' to the love of his life. LOL Ok, so i have to admit i was intrigued and drawn in by his charisma and charm... but his misspelled letters, texts and broken English was a quick red flag. He claimed he was Italian, but his accent was obviously African decent. Also, i was expecting him to ask for money... and within 2 weeks, he of course did the $50 iTunes card request. Good grief! Busted. I have posted his pics here and his phone number is 4404590436. I quickly gave him an ear full and ripped him a new one about how mean and hurtful he is and how he has no regard for older women. After berating him for about 10 minutes, he apologized if i felt the way i did and continued to plead innocence. I admit, again, he is good. They have every scenario planned and prepared for. I truly hope people stop sending money to these people. NEVER EVER send money to people you do not know or can verify. It is sad that people are so desperate for love that they would do anything out of the kindness of their hearts.
Note: they can also create fake facebook pages... his is david.holley.94801 Weird that it has dots and numbers. I've never seen that before. That may be a red flag for people.
I hope this post can help a little. I recently found him up on PerfectMatchForMe.com with the same name and pics.

I wanted to post some more information about this guy. I don't know if this is a new scam but wanted to make people aware so they do not fall for it.
I was on to him from almost the start and when i confronted him, he lied more to get me to keep talking to him. After about a month and me telling him I WOULD NOT BE GIVING HIM MONEY... he revealed his true self to me. I mean, i saw him on Skype so i know he was real. He continued to woe me and we became friends. We talked about actually meeting one day. I talked to family members even. I saw him for his real self on SKype and thought that meant it was real. I truly liked the guy. Foolish! I still knew in the back of my mind something was not right. He was too smooth and said all the right things.
Then one day... he just stopped calling. I found a new profile for him up on pof just yesterday... but i had it removed. Please be aware.
His phone numbers are 4404590436 which i'm sure he can change. His Ghana number is 024 478 4477 which he can probably change also. Just thought this might help someone else.
New pics also added below. Fake ones.... and the real him!!!
Please be careful people. Now it isn't just for the money, it is just for the heartache. Mean spirited people. I can spot them now, but many people are still falling for their scams. Be safe out there!!

Ok, so the saga continues.... boy they are good! Even though in my heart i know it started as a scam and it continues as a scam, even though i have seen and talked to him in person.... i know there is more that he is just using me for. He has been very up front about wanting to find a white women and to move to the states. He is not hiding that fact. That is a goal of a lot of African men. Just because they tell you that makes them seem honest, but they will hurt you in the end. They all deserve awards for their acting. When you try to get away, they pull you back in with their charisma. Charming is an understatement. These men truly do this for a living and they are good at it. Be careful ladies. Oh, if you get romantic emails and letters from them, copy and past portions of them to google. I guarantee they have stolen them from poems or other sites. I found many scam sites that have posted emails and found the very romantic emails that he was sending me on these sites... almost word for word. SMH! Sad!!!
Wish we could stop these horrible people but it is almost impossible. They are slick!
Rules: If you don't know them in person... do NOT send money! If you have not met them, do NOT trust them.
They fall in love quickly but their is an agenda.
DO NOT FALL FOR THEIR SCAMS! Everybody wants to be loved and have these wonderful things said to them, but they are liars! Bad people! Be safe!

What you should do is to BLOCK and IGNORE scammers and stop let them to fool you. The real man is an actor, performer and musician and there is a hundreds of his videos as well as pictures ready to be stolen by scammers and remade to scammers needs so they can fool you and other ladies.
The man has a gorgeous wife and several children and I do not think he is anxious to meet another lady.
Scammers tried to fool you at SKYPE :(

Please post all info about Ghanaian mafia: phone numbers, email addresses, pictures and BLOCK them. Be safe online. They are not looking to have a pretty ladies as friends online. They need your money, bank accounts, address, work phone numbers and bunch of other info to continue with the scam.

Re: David Holley - davidholley688@gmail.com has changed his name

Postby Buccaneerfgirl » Thu May 31, 2018 2:12 am

David Holley now goes by the name of Howard Holley. He states he is from Marlow Heights MD, states he is stationed in Damascus, till mid July. The MO that he is using now, tells where he has been in the service, and states he is based with US Army, WWII division. Do not fall for him, if he was a part of this unit, he is dead. :mrgreen:

His email is now howardholley73@gmail.com. He is using all the same photos
