Name: Robles: Lucas, Michael, others


He claimed to be an officer in the Army currently in Damascus, Syria fighting the militants. Asked for a box of various items to be mailed to an address in Ghana of a UN delivery service that takes packages into Camp Damascus. No APO address (which all military have) was given. Also wanted a $500.00 Play Station 4 with specific games which were also pricey. Never sent the boxes, never intended to but played along to see what Info I could gather. He got very angry when The boxes didn't arrive. Asked for an iPhone 6 Plus unlocked for his commander to keep him from being transferred to a more dangerous area in Syria. Asked me to receive two trunks on his behalf to be delivered to my house by a UN Diplomat. Said trunks were full of cash and gold bars. He tried to court me and groom me to believe the money and gold were to start a life together. Of course, I didn't do that either! Ended up letting him know I knew he was scamming me when he then asked for $2000.00 to pay off his commander in lieu of the $1,400.00 unlocked iPhone that never arrived. Ha! This guy is good, women. He has not used a real soldiers photo.. he used his own. Many photos of him on scammer sites, obviously sent to his 'victims' to lure them in and give himself credence. He was shocked to learn the con had been conned! Sweet moment! While digging around on the scammer sites I found the photo his fake military ID card exhibited. This guy is cruel and hard core, trying to suck you in any way he can, i.e. threatening to withdraw his plan of a lifelong future with you if he didn't get what he wanted. His anger was unpredictable to say the least.

when he found out I was playing along instead of hooked.



Other Comments:
I lost nothing but I am sure I was one of his few ' women' that didn't. Also, felt at times he was working with someone else as his writing, grammar, etc was often different. The bank account he wanted the bribe money deposited in was Bank of America in California. Get this...account of FANG WANG! Very creative.
