Other Comments:
This known scammer came to me from Wayn with no photo. I replied his message, he replied immediately back. I send him one mail and to my suspicion (the type of message so typical for scammers) he responded and send photos. As soon as I saw them I could indetify scammer and reported him to where he is already reported with other mails.

His 1 message on Wayn to me:

Hello how are you doing? Your marvellous profile got me fascinated to contact you as First instant; I was introduced to this site by a friend who has met his soul Mate and I believed I will get mine here as well. I'm looking for good and kind Woman, loyal, caring, thoughtful, creative, compassionate, imaginative, Serious, sensual and passionate woman but dislike women who lie, cheat, Dishonest, Disrespectful, and who just play tricks I am new and not always in this Site due to the nature of my work. as British Army, am currently on deployment in Kabul , Afghanistan My dear it’s nice meeting you, Since am new in this site and don't know anything about this site. I will like to know more About you because you got my attention. Could you send me your email address and l will write you a mail and tell you more about myself and also send my photo to you, waiting for your responds soon thanks Richard xxxx

Mail respond from him:

My dear

Nice chat with you through the site, i will love to know more about you, your profile seems great and wonderful. A friend of mine got me started on this dating platform as a way of finding the woman of my life seems my work nature kept me extremely busy. I’m Major-General Richard Nikolay of British Army currently on deployment in Kabul I was commissioned into the Royal Regiment of Artillery in 1979, I got educated in Queens College, Oxford. Born 15th April 1957 Bulgarian-British accent. I was commissioned into the Green Howards from Sandhurst in 1980 when I was 23 years, served with the 1st Battalion in Hong Kong, Germany and Libya, after working in the Ministry of Defiance, returned to the Battalion as a company commander, serving in currently in Kabul, Afghanistan, this is my 32 years in service planning to resign. It is wise starting to get a date for marriage and a friend directed me here that’s why am on this site. I am Widower with a child. My Wife died few years ago in auto crash. John Kenneth my son's studying Petroleum Engineering in University of Alberta Canada. He is nice and intelligent boy I take him to high esteem because he is my carbon copy.

Seeing as I'm heading back home soon, that also gives me a 'different' perspective. I generally socialize outside of the military community since I'm a widower and my peers are pretty much all married with children. I'm an avid athlete, having played most sports at one time or another just to keep fit, everything from Adventure racing to Waffle ball! These days I mostly play rugby and lift weights. Someday I’ll move back home to be able to surf, paddle and dive like I love to do. Due to the kind of task I've got now, I can’t visit the site often, probably if you don't mind we can chat instantaneously through SKYPE messenger platform, which will make us feel closer chatting instantly back and forth. I'm not in a hurry to find the love of my life, but I don't want to wait for months or more years because life is too short to spend it alone. The passion, beauty and excitement of being with the one you love is so wonderful. What I want is to find one that is right for me and understand what bothers me most in this life and what is inside it and how you feel, I want to meet one that is romantic, serious and down to earth at the same time, a woman who likes to laugh and enjoy the outdoors, who truly wants to be a wife and believes in the sanctity of marriage, who is honest, loyal, trustworthy and totally devoted to her man. Who is willing to try new things? I’ll like to know more about you with your photos, I'm hoping to read from you soon with your photos. What do you do for a living?
Hugs and kisses.
Richard Nikolay
Major-General of British Army

I have been chatting with a soldier I met on we have been chatting fir a month now. He says he is in Syria with the Air Force. He is quite the charmer. I really have strong feelings for him. But something in my gut retells me he is a scammer. I have everyone of these pics you are showing here on your site. He goes by the name of James E Hanson. Today he said that he wants to send a package to me and it would not cost me nothing and to hold it for him to he comes home around the 15th of October. Please Please can you tell me if he is the real James E Hanson ir is he a fake. Do we know the person's real name. I thought I saw something the other day that a man by the name of Stephen Murphy and they were his pics that were stolen. Thank you for your time

Met Stewart from LinkedIn and I am curious whether he is genuine or a scammer... Please help.

yes, general Murphy pictures are over used. I do not think he knows about it either. People are really mean and don't care about the feelings of others. Their day will come and they will pay big time. May God guide and comfort those you have suffered by the evil deeds of devil controlled animals.
