Re: military scam

I have received messages from 3 people claiming to be high ranking Generals in Afghanistan. My husband is deployed there now, so this does not sit well with me.

Re: military scam

Mine started right after he deployed, as well. And I have my profile set to where only people who are contacts are supposed to be able to contact me. Clearly that doesn't work. I have nothing on my profile that indicates I'm affiliated with the military in any way, so it seems odd that I keep getting these messages. Frustrates me, worries me and angers me that someone is pretending to be in the service.

Re: military scam

Me also, there is nothing that lead to any information related to Afghanistan or Militairy...very strange and strange from Skype that they don't have the privacy setting correct!

I normally never use skype, only when my husband is on a mission, Skype does know then that I have contact with Afghanistan.......so there is something wrong with the privacy of skype maybe? Skype don't answer me...

you can add another name to this one it´s John H Bavinchove and he passes himself off as a Cardiologist,says he is from Syria and been working 2 years without pay and was now closing on his contract and had all this money he needed to get out of the country. when he mentioned UN courier and wanted my full address, Passport telephone number I knew it was a scam.

because I googled and found out all information about this scam I took a risk and trapped him, he will ask you to open a Yahoo messenger and still use skype,  also introduces you to his son through Yahoo messenger and gives you a false mobile number to call him.who is in school in Liverpool, he is very convincing, but i was even more . I reported him to skype and Yahoo hopefully it will help others.
