Angel dating scam. This sounds like the same person who contacted me via Facebook under the name of Derrick Chapman. Said he was in the US based in Aleppo, Syria. Wife died and had an 11 year old daughter called Bella at Angel dating scam school.
Is now asking me to contact the US army with a fake emergency so he can get discharged! Never followed this up as I know th3 next step would be another request for money. I met a man who is stationed in Syria or that what he said.
We talked for 3 months only by text. Recently he told me he wanted to send me a package he never asked me for anything.
Long story short he made me feel terrible for not being able to help him since he said he spent all his money to send me the package and had no access to his account.
I winded up using my rent money to pay half since they told me they would take payments.
After the payment was received to a bank in NY eventhough the package was being held in Canada. I did question that but I was being told I only had 3 days before they were going to seize his package and auction it off. He started telling me that I was not being supportive and his problem was suppose to be my problem.
So I fell for it. I found out later that the tracking number given was a fake not sure if the courier was real. I since have been in contact with my bank to try to get my money back "Angel dating scam" filed a report with the FBI. I hate that I fell for it and started to fall for him. Now I miss talking to someone I don't know who they even were. One last part I ended up hiring a PI to get answers. I was told the number he was texting Angel dating scam from was an app number his e mail was a fake.
I thought it was a real military e mail. I ended up copying and pasting the trunk box story. Haven't heard from him since. May I had a guy talk me instagram and i blocked him. Proceeded follow me on facebook. I never accept friend requests I do not know. Marine, handsome and Story was wife passed away daughter and in "Angel dating scam" deployed.
We chatted about a month and he began talking about boxes freaking out what he was going to do his doctor friend move to Syria he had get the packages out his house in Iraq. Naive me says send them to me I can care for the packages until you return home.
