Always sent things via his 'friend in Ghana' Saviour Ahiagbedey Nsawom Road 106 Accra, Ghana 00233
Phone number 233244119135. Alledged he was in Kabul and his friend flew the packages into him at Kabul. When I stopped believing him he has changed his name to Brett Coppins, because I complained that he had no background to check and everyone has documents. His whole story changed. His age changed too from turning 60 in July to being 53. All the photos are of the same man except the military id was photo shopped that he sent to convince me he was real and needed my help. I reported to the local police but they didn't get back to me before I sent some money. Never followed up on the scammer with the FBI.

I also have been contacted by Phillip Kent Witt, and was suspecting something wasn't right. He told me he had a son who he see every two weeks. I questioned this because he said he was in Kabul, Afghanistan but his son was only 20 and at an army academy...

Plus his English was very fragmented as if using a translator.

I thought I had deleted him (Gary) from my phone but received a text message this morning at 5:00 a.m. wishing me a ' Happy Marry Christmas to you and a Happy New YEAR in Advance my one and Only xxxxxx. 1241.' the last means 'I love you More'. This was sent on computer with the number: 92601. The meaning of the one two four one is that it's twelve letters, four words and one meaning.
I'm trying to get a photo of Saviour cropped that was sent with his son since minors are not to be posted. I'm not as good with this photo sending as I should be.
Another name he used was LOWMAN as his middle name. Said was his mother's maiden name.

I just received a fb message from Phillip Kent. His English was a bit off, so I decided to google the name just in case, as his fb page was almost empty. So glad I did!

I met John Mickson Coppins December 16th on tagg. He asked if I was a God fearing woman. He told me he was a minister serving in the US Army and was stationed in Syria for 10 months. he will be returning back to his base January 30th. He told me he had a son in Ghana staying with his childhood friend who was his caretaker. He told me he is divorce, his wife found another man while he was serving in Iraq. He came on strong, and after one week of IM chat on face book he told me we had made a divine connection, it was God's will we met. He began calling me his wife. He never asked me for money. he did make me promises to come here and we will share the gospel with others. He declared his undying love for me,his forever wife. I investigated him through my connections with the US Army. he didn't show in either the central data base or the state data base. I went on line and found his photos and read letters from women he did scam money from. I feel fortunate to have walked away earlier.

Lieutenant Colonol Phil Kent Witt made contact with a friend of mine here in Australia. I knew it was a scam. She is trying to block him now.

I received a message through messenger on facebook from a Major Philip Kent Witt. He stated he was of the United State Army and in Kabul Afgananistan but when in the states he is at Foot Hood and he is from Dallas. He says he is 59 and he has a 20 year old son military school. I thought things were odd so I contacted a relative that was in the military and an investigator. He did some checking and said he was a scammer. He gave me a phone number that was in Florida. He is using pictures of a Major Kevin Witt that is real and retired from the military. I voiced my questions to the person and he tried to reassure me with more pictures. I looked this person up on google.com and found out his real name and that he is a dating scammer. I called that phone number and asked for the real name and he said it was him and when I mentioned the Philip Kent Witt name he hung up. He then tried to message me and asked how I called and who I had called. He wanted me to help him with a plane ticket so he could get leave. Hopefully he runs out of names and pictures. He was curious how I got some pictures of the real Major Witt. Remember to always check out people before sending money. I am so glad I had a cousin that could check things out for me.

I am sorry that you met a online scammer .Scammers do not care if people are sick or even dying they continue scamming those anyway . I have met victims that even are disabled and have been so scammed badly despite this. Scammers hits the most vulnerable in the society too.

.Please post letters the scammer sent you and photos the scammer is using online to scam women with

Contacted by John Coppins throught Our Time dating web site. He said being in the military in Afganisitan he was unable to go throught the site and took to email/texting asap. Similar stories envolving death of wife , military retirement and son inheritence which required a legal fee to obtain. Used the following emails: musidsteelman@yahoo.com, jeyanthimanivasagam@gmail.com, NuruEscudeo@lawyer.com & gmail.com
Badly photoshoped my photo on to 'his photo album' in group soldier shot. He is very good but I recognized the scam early and played along trying to get info to give authorities. As soon as I told him I had been leading him on my email was hacked.
