Name: Rasheed Mohammed


Not known, but claims to be from Young America, Minnesota. --> No such listing matches his name.

Other Comments:
Used a profile on a Muslim Matchmaking website, Half Our Deen, and requested email address on the 3rd message in order to 'talk better, please'. Made contact with me within a day as another 'user' named Norman Mark, who also requested email communication in his 2nd message, and whose photo I will also submit in another query. This raised a red flag that they were the same person. After messaging 'Rasheed Mohammed' to ask a few basic questions about his background and beliefs, and emailing him for further questioning, he started using cliches commonly found on the internet and in spam/scam messages, such as 'love is not always about shooting fireworks', 'love cannot be found through the eye or ear', 'I am ready to come see you in person only after we have developed trust for each other', etc.

Thank you !
The dating sites do not care many times to remove scam profiles,but in my opinion removing scam profiles from the dating sites do not do so much as scammers creates new profiles immediately,with new names and photos and can scam new victims until the scammer gets reported online again ,so I do not advice people actually to do that .

The mail you posted here is obviously used by another alias ,this scammer is using
a name Fareed Azi with emailaddress:


Scammers do not care how people looks like ,or what age people are in ,anyone who is online is a potential victim in the scammers eyes,this scammer is sloppy too as the guy on the photo seems to be married/engaged too.The photos posted here is not the scammer him self ,it is stolen photos from someone innocent,probably from a dating site or someones Facebook account. The scammer behind this scam is probably a West-African (Nigerian )scammer that possibly could have accomplices in Turkey .Please post more mails and photos .

He stated his name was Muhammad James Maroon. He stated he was from California. He stated he had a little girl who was seven years old. He sent pictures of him with friends. He sent pictures of his little girl. He sent pictures of his first wife. But phone numbers could not be traced. And guess what, there was no Muhammad James Maroon anywhere.

Working as a journalist...I have friends who watch my back.

The above message roughly translated...

My James Smith. I was born on April 10, 1957 at Baptist Hospital of Tampa. I started in the academy and children 6 and subsequently continued from Calvary Baptist Church School. I was very playful at school and it affected my scientific work. I joined the military academy at the age of 20 years. I was at boarding school and my parents came to me once in a while. I did not spend much time at home, then studied law at the University of Miami, I am also a criminal lawyer .. My mom was a head teacher, and my father was in the medical field, the Army, and then worked as a gold miner ... I participated in the Gulf War in 1990 to 1991. The Gulf War was conducted to liberate Kuwait from autocratic rule of the late Saddam. I had a very bad experience.
Well, I E-6 Staff Sergeant (SSG) and is now working with the UN. I also act as a platoon sergeant in the absence of Sergeant First Class. I am the leader of my team. I am not an officer of the Commission, and I work in the junior management of the military in Kabul, Afghanistan now now.i here for two and a half years and will retire in four months and will be returning home in Arlington in four months .. . So what do you do for a living?, And what could have brought you here to meet?
As you already know, I am currently deployed in Kabul province, Afghanistan. I must tell you that I'm on the last mission here in Afghanistan, and I had already spent 2 years 6 months here in Afghanistan. My first mission in Iraq in 2008. that the mission ended in 2010. Back in the States, I found out that my ex betrayed my love by going to another man. It cost me a lot. She misused my properties so I paid her by the court. I was in love with her whole heart, but it let me down. I was with her for 5 years.
I am currently in search of the one in my heart .... in which I was talking to the woman that can put her past behind to move on with me to the next level.
In fact, I'm in Afghanistan, and to communicate with you, I hope things will change from one stage to another. I'll be home in July in Arlington, where I live all alone all self.i I lost my family, and I am the only child they had. In fact, we are not allowed to communicate with outsiders because of security reasons, but I need a woman to myself as I left the army in order to calm down .. The woman who would be there for me, and I'll be there for her. I can not call you because we are not allowed to talk to strangers on the phone. All monitored.can you send me some pics of the road

I'm heartbroken. I met this guy on Says he's 'Abraham Othimala' on lots of sites. Uses the same number too rediculous emails as well. Thinks he's great in his head but never wants to meet. Maybe he has a small organ he doesn't want anyone to laugh at.
