This photo was sent after I had asked him to prove he was a soldier and that he was Phillip Wood. He sent this two days later. He has sunglasses on at night, his patch has his first name on it and he said he was a captain and the stripes says different. My motives are to warn others and to talk with the victim in the pictures. His photos are being used on several different sites for scamming purposes.

I do believe that US Army regulations require that the last name be shown on the patch.

@rsm1
What investigations have you done already? What other sites have you looked for information on those pictures? No one will want to duplicate the investigatory efforts you have already made. How about you tell us what you have done to track down the real person in those photos? Besides posting in this forum and blog sections, that is.

I have reported this to this website, romancescam.com and city-dataforum .com. I also went to tineye.com and ran his photos thru. I don't know what else to do. If you have any suggestions I would very much appreciate it. This is all new to me and I'm not very computer savy, so I'm not sure what resources are out there. I'm sure this guy in these photos is either a facebook or myspace member. Facebook is where the scammer contacted me, so I'm just guessing thats where these photos were stolen from. I would love any advice as to how to find him.

The image is clearly altered. The rank is Sgt. No beads in US military uniform. Very unlikely a Sgt. would be that old.

Prior photos appear unaltered. The fella is likely in British kit. Carries H&K. Very unlikely US soldier would carry H&K.

They appear to be contractors. And very stupid ones at that.

Sorry, what is a H&K? I don't have much knowledge of the military. Also, why would you say they are very stupid ones?

The guy in these phots is NOT the scammer. However, the guy that stole the photos has used these photos and the same email address on other sites. We have already confirmed that one of these photos are photoshopped. Not sure what you are saying...

If Im not mistaken, that is what this website is for...reporting scams, right?
So far by me reporting this on romance.com, someone has came forth that has also been communicating with this same scammer using the same name and email address. So if me coming on here reporting this has helped one person from getting scammed, I'm happy.

H&K is Heckler & Koch a German manufacturer and defense contractor that supplies military weaponry and related accessories for military and law enforcement agencies around the world. They are a supplier of the Royal Marines and British Army of the UK

A search of over 2 billion internet photos turns up nothing yet for alternate sources of this pic. They could be relatively new to the web which reduces but not eliminate the likelihood they are someone else unless the physical photos copied were also stolen.

If you feel the provided info and sites are false and someone is attempting to victimize you then you need to report the incidents to those sites. You can also report it at sites like ripoffreport.com using his name or alias and the website names in the post but you better be sure you are being scammed and this is a fictitious identity.

IF YOU HAVE FACTUAL PROOF then I suggest you file an FBI report at http://www.ic3.gov/complaint/default.aspx

If you are unclear as to the point of posting information on scams and scammers, why are you reading and posting on a scam reporting site? Besides, that poster is NOT saying that the person in the photos IS a scammer, the OP is saying a scammer is USING the photos to pretend to be that person.

Would the photos show up if they were in someones facebook or myspace account? I wasn't sure if tineye could search those files.
I don't feel like I am being vicitimized. 1) I know without a doubt that these photos were stolen, 2) I know that I was communicating with someone that tried, on two different occasions, to get money from me, 3) I know I have multiply amounts of emails to prove it.. ALL contact has been lost with this person. He isn't still trying to contact me. He blocked me from facebook, thats why I can't report him to them. My goal has been this, to get MY story out there the best I could. I haven't posted emails on this website BECAUSE, someone googled my email address just the other day. One of the websites I had posted some of the conversations on popped up. This person could read the entire posting and he wasn't even a member to the website. My goal now is to try to locate this man. I only want help, ideas...etc with this.

Re: Stolen Photo/Fake Facebook

Can anyone tell me anything about these photos? Does this look like the U.S. Army?

I was wondering about the last two photos. Does this look like the U.S. Military? If not, does anyone know where it may be?
