Hi, if you have his reply-to email/phone number we can look into it, the odds are very very much towards "military scammer" here already :)
Please try your best to block ALL your scammer´s still incoming messages and calls!

All photos posted in the tread are stolen from this military man and abused by West African mafia which knows that they do not fit the image a man or woman is seeking in a relationship. That is the one reason scammers use the stolen photos to lure victims into a romance scam; the stolen photos are the most powerful visual tools scammers use to entice romance scam victims. The other reason is that scammers are criminals and hide their identity.
The photo victim does not even know the romance scam victim is deeply in love with their image.
Confronting the scammer is WRONG!!! DON'T enlighten criminals with your wisdom. REPORT & BLOCK.
PHOTO VICTIM - "Do not confront the owner of the pictures, as they are victims themselves! You will only serve to further the terror and harm !" Silence Is Golden!!! I speak Polish.

Unfortunately you chat with a bunch of Nigerian young criminals which try very hard to convince you they are this soldier. Fortunately you made the research and they won't be able to lure you into the scam. Please BLOCK them and IGNORE. Do not tell them you know what they are. Surf safe online.

Please post email address and phone number of the scammers if you can.

This guy was super fishy from the get-go. I've been playing along for a week to see what info I can get. He's going by Captain Cooper Drake now. Met him on Bumble. Switched over to Kik. Bumble had his location near me. He said he was going to Fort Bragg in a couple days to get deployed. A couple days later, Bumble did show him at Fort Bragg. A few days after that, he was no longer on Bumble.

This story is good...
Born in Germany, but raised in US, specifically Denver. He doesn't remember when he came to US. They spoke German at home, and thus the poorly spoken English. Both parents died. Wife died during childbirth. Son is with a nanny while he is away; though he said daughter once. His step brother was in the Navy and died 6 months ago. Soon as he finds the right girl he plans to retire from the army, though he doesn't have his 20 yrs in, only 14. He repeated himself a lot. Over half of what he said were song lyrics. Never spoke on the phone. I had an army friend try to look him up, but couldn't find him in the system; no record of him on global, no APO address, no AKO. Claimed he was deployed in Djibouti, but because of ops mission (21st unit combat strike special), he couldn't receive mail there, so I could sent his birthday card (he'll be 43 on Sunday) to some address in Nigeria, but I wasn't to tell anybody that I was sending anything (That one killed me! What a fool!). When I called him out on it, he got super irrationally, illogically angry at me for not trusting him (because the guilt trip must work on some people). I think he said "trust me" more than any villain in any movie. He has a Facebook page created just about a month ago with no friends on it and he liked all of his own photos. https://www.facebook.com/cooper.drake.984

I'll be reporting it to CID, too.

This person is still operating. They romance scammed my friend out of £500. CasseyCooper in Kik. Same guy, she verified from the pictures posted here.

I have contact ActionFraud/NCA/Interpol and other agencies & presented information & Screenshots. They were very careful not to give up the ruse, but it is upsetting that they have been able to operate for so long. They belong in jail.

I managed to convince my friend to take over their account & they (CasseyCooper) gave the following

+234 903 972 6633

A Nigerian cell number

+44 7376 580425

A UK cell number.

It´s gangs in overseas West Africa using pictures and names of people - not "this person" ;) If you have scam used details to add here, like money recipient name, please add - sad to see they continue to be successful at their crimes :(

I'm aware, Frumpy. I had to convince my friend. I have hunted scum like this. How do you think I got him to give the info?

She was devastated by it. I'm just angry I didn't find out & tell her sooner
