Other Comments:
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.

This guy just contacted me through POF last night. Sent me all the same pictures. Luckily I just did a search on google and saw his picture and this site. I have since blocked him from POF account and will report him. He does have my email, but I hope he gives up when I do not respond.

He is now operating under the name Mark Coppins, in Kubal but stationed out of jacksonville Florida. He's good, those pictures sure make him seem real. Sad situation but even worse that he is using the the pretence of being in the army, those men and women give up so much to protect and for him or them to do this goes beyond dirty.

This guy is scamming under the name of Mark Coppins...same stories as above. He asked me to buy his son an iphone. Started out saying he was a captain and 60 yrs old then told me he was a sgt and 55 yrs old. When I asked about the descrepancy he said he was in Iraq whan they caught Saddam and he had a bad experience. He should be arrested and he can make new girlfriends from prison.

Well, this guy has struck again. His name is now Mark Coppins from Beacon Hill, Boston. He is in Afganastan and coming home in 2 months. Stationed at Fort Devons. He sent several photos of himself (Philip Witt) and his son, family, and elderly father. When I asked him where on Beacon Hill did he live, because my daughter is an attorney living on Beacon Hill, I never heard from him again.

I met 'James Coppins' June 3, 2015 and we begin to email each other. He told me he was in the Army and that he was a 'Major-Sgt.', which I found out wasn't true. At the end of June he told me he and his colleagues were going a 'secret mission' to rescue a rich family in Syria and that they were rewarded with gold and diamonds and he needed to get the 'package' out of Syria and he had a friend that would deliver the pkg. to me, but he had to go to Ghana and so he gave me the man name, which was 'Ankrah Bernard', he told me had done things for him before and he could be trusted. He also said he was in the Navy. He gave me his email address and I started communicating with him about getting the pkg. to me, but he would need money to get the certificate for the gold and I needed to send money, so I sent money several times. Finally when I thought James was getting ready to retire as he told me that he would be coming my way. Well after I could sent the last of the money Ankrah needed and supposedly when he finally got the pkg., he had to move from hotel to hotel until Customs found him and took it back. September 5th was the last time I heard from him, because he got upset because the pkg. was lost he accused me of losing it and I didn't hear from him for weeks, until he started IM me on yahoo. I wouldn't respond. I have taken out several payday loans and borrowing from a friend and this has left me in a lot of debt, that I had to file for bankruptcy. I know it is possible that someone could have stolen his military pictures and his information. I found out his true name, which is Brett Coppins and he told me he was from Florida, well he's from Indiana. When I talk on my cell phone it sounds like my conversations are being recorded. This man works in investigative and the security field, so it is possible. This madness has got to stop. He even sent a picture of his 'daughter', Chelsea which lived in Ghana with the 'nanny' and even had the 'nanny', which he told me her name was Rachael Edwards, which was probably a lie email me. He told me he was divorced and that his ex-wife cheated on him and that she was killed in an accident, which was probably a lie. Also in putting his name in I also saw where someone said his name was Gary Hatfield and he was a scammer. I really just want my money back if that is possible. I really hope it's something can be done about this. I have kept all the receipts and emails that this man has sent me if that is needed. 'James' email address was: countrysmile474@gmail.com. 'Ankrah' email address: benank20871@gmail.com. 'Rachael' email: redwards2012@yahoo.com Thank you once again. I also realize that someone could have stolen his pictures, but I wanted to report this and I have to the FBI and FTC. Look out ladies.

Hello, I would like to report an online dating scammer. We have been talking via telephone texting. This person is really good. His phone # is 1-917-423-4186. name Benjamin Carter. His names friend in Kenya is Josphat Kkwania. He said he is a businessman delivering food for the US Army in Kenya. I am afraid that this person had scammed me and I believe that he cares for me.
I really believe that he is for real. Please I need help me. He send me a check of $5200.00, i deposit it to my bank account. I send him a total of $4500 through moneygram under the name of Josphat Kkwania. We have been texting each other for the past few months.

I am devastated because this is also the second time he scammed me. I look so stupid and so mad. I like this person to be punish by law. He is issuing fraud check from here in America and make me send him money via MoneyGram. I really look an idiot. The first time he scammed me and I should have know but I was so in love and naive. I also send him $1500.00 last October.

I have been scammed before and did not learn a lesson. I am only human and a lonely woman who is searching for true love at Match.com. He said he is from Australia and move here in America 3 years ago. He said he is a widower wife died of cancer. He said his date of birth was August 16, 1968. He have no siblings and move here in Colorado 3 years ago. I trusted him because he looks like a good guy and was nice to me at first. I was hooked for his kindness.
I hope this guy will be caught.

This person a big time scammer. I was scammed twice by giving me a face check. It looks really real check but it turns out it is a fraud.

His name is Ben Carter from Australia according to him. He is a widower and wife died of cancer. No children and no siblings. He moved here in Colorado 3 years ago. Now we have been texting for almost 3 months of more. I meet him from Match.com.

Not only that he is good looking but he treated me like a lady. Send me a candle by mail. He knows where i live and I am worried about that. He also mentioned that he knows an FBI agent. His friend name is Josphat Kkwania in Kenya. I should have know that he is a fraud/scammer but i refused to believe because i care and would like to help a person in need which i also was looking for true love and I believe and trusted him.

His phone number is 1-917-423-4186. I tried to check his personal profile but i have to pay in order to check him out. But i was so stupid not to see the signs. Please catch this person. I am just an ordinary person trying to make sense of life and alone. So I am a perfect victim.

The picture below is a big scammer and a check fraud issuer. He had send me a check twice and they are all fraud.

His name is Ben Carter and his friend's name in Kenya is Josphat Kkwania. I check all the fraud scammer picture but this person is a new scammer. His said his wife died of breast cancer and no children and no siblings. He came from Australia and move here in Colorado 3 years ago. His birth date is August 16, 1968. I am not really sure if this is his real name either. We have been texting each other for months which i can't remember when but he is really good and good looking too.

I believe him and trusted him. Now I have to call the bank and have to close all my account so he can never see any of my personal information. The first check was opened at Key Bank and now my personal checking account. I am really devastated by this incident.
Please help me catch this guy.
