  4. Hooray and good for you!! I’ve been talking to a guy for a while and have suspected him of being ascammer for quite a while (three months) I have kept talking to him. Figured while he was wasting his time on me he couldn’t scam anyone else. I had to make the phone call about his luggage and expect the request for money very soon. Like you I will keep it going as long as I can. Revenge is sweet!!

      • I just want to know if someone know does the army send the soldiers stuff back home at a discount or for free,I mean their suitcases. This soldier was corisonding with me and asked if he could send his suit cases here as he is retiring this month after 28 yes in army. I said so he asked for my full name ,address ,& phone # & email. I didn’t think nothing of it as he didn’t say anything about money. I was just going to help him out.well he then told me I would have to pay up to 500. to accept. He was over in Afganisstan for 1 yr. Now he said he’s coming back home. he originally lives in Minn. cks. out on Facebook someone cks out on Facebook.I told him I did not have the money as I’m on limited income. then he asked for a 100. I said I might be able to do 40 he said send it now. told him had to wait for ck to come in ,might only be able to send 20. as I don’t get much. saidv that won’t do. to forget it. if he is in Afghanistan why did he give me an address in south Africa to send it to? I told him it sounded like a scam & would not send it to s.Africa. he said that who would be bringing his stuff. now today he has me blocked from his list. that’s good. his name. was David Young from Minn. but the real one I don’t believe would do that.

  5. Here is another- same scam with different name but same email address as

    From: Capt. Tony Hall (US Army 395th.CSSB
