One Response to From the Wall Street Journal — Online, Is Dream Date A Scam? — May 4, 2011

  1. HI MY NAME IS TAMARA I LIVE IN UTAH
    I AM A VICTIM OF A ROMANCE SCAM
    I MET A MAN AND STARTED TOO TALK WITH
    ON CUPID.COM
    IT WAS DECEMBER 2016 AND HIS NAME WAS JEFF POSEY
    HIS EMAIL WAS JEFFPOSEY18@gmail.com
    HE WAS 47 AND LIVED IN NEBRASKA
    HE WAS IN THE ARMY SSG. INFANTRY SNIPER
    AND HE TOLD ME HE WAS BEING DEPLOYED IN JANUARY OF 2017
    FOR A VERY LONG DEPLOYEMENT
    I HAD A GUT FEELING THAT SOMETHING WAS OFF
    HE TOLD. ME THAT HE WAS DIVORCED AND HIS MARRIAGE. WAS ROCKY AND THAT WHILE HE WAS DEPLOYED HIS EX WIFE WAS HAVING A ONGOING AFFAIR WITH HIS BEST FRIEND AND THAT SHE GOT PREGNANT BY HIS BEST FRIEND
    HE TOLD ME THAT HIS CELL PHONE WAS BREAKING AND THAT HE NEED A NEW ONE BUT COULD NOT AFFORD A NEW ONE
    BECAUSE HIS EX WIFE ACCRUED A LOAN AND IT WAS UNPAID AND HE JUST COULDN’T
    SO THEN REALLY QUICKLY HE ASKED ME TOO SEND MONEY TOO HIS FRIEND IN AFRICA
    THAT HIS FRIEND ALREADY DEPLOYED
    SO HE COULD RECEIVE THE MONEY AND BUY A PHONE
    I TOLD HIM I COULDN’T AND HE BACKED OFF
    BUT HE DEPLOYED IN JANUARY
    AND HE STARTED ASKING ME FOR MONEY OR ITUNES CARDS FOR HIS NEW PHONE
    I FELT BAD FOR SOME RESON I TRULY BELIEVE HIM SO I BOUGHT $400.00 IN ITUNES CARDS
    I THOUGHT I WOULD HERE FROM POSEY AS I WOULD CALL HIM
    BUT I DIDN’T AND I WAS GETTING ANGRY FED UP
    SO BY AUGUST WE TALKED A LITTEL BIT ON HANGOUTS
    I FINALLY LOOKED HIS NAME UP AND I WAS SO SHOCKED OF ALL THE PHOTOS OF THE REAL BRIAN POSEY AND ALL THE DIFFERENT ACCOUNTS AND DIFFERENT EMAILS I WAS FLOORED
    SO BY SEPTEMBER HE WROTE ME SAYING HE WAS COMING HOME BUT HE TOLD ME THAT HE WOULD HAVE TOO PAY A HUGE FEE TOO COME BACK HOME I KNEW IN MY HEART THAT WAS A LIE LIKE ALL THE OTHER STUFF I FOUND OUT ABOUT JEFF POSEY
    I HAD IT I CALLED THIS SCAMMER OUT ON EVERYTHING AND HE BLOCKED ME ON HANGOUTS THAT WAS 4 MONTHS AGO
    AND I STAYED WITH THIS JEF POSEY FOR 9 LONG CAOHOTIC 9 MONTH’S
    I JUST FEEL STUPID THAT I DIDN’T FIND ALL THIS OUT ABOUT THE SCAMMER
    I WILL NEVER GET BACK ON A DATEING SITE I FEEL I LIVED THROUGH IT FOR 9 MONTHS
    AND I FEEL REALLY SAD AND MAD AT THE SAME TIME FOR BRIAN POSEY THE TRUE VICTIM AS WELL
    I HAVE A PHOTO THAT THE SCAMMER SENT ME THROUGH MY OLD EMAIL AND ITS OF A PERSONAL ONE IN A BATHROOM NOT SHOWING A FACE IT WAS IN A MIRROR BUT ITS A SKINNY MAIL IN HIS ARMY FATIGUES AND ITS PRIVATELY IF YOU KNOW WHAT I AM SAYING
    I JUST FEEL THR SCAMMER HAS ALL THESE PERSONAL PRIVATE PHOTOS THAT ARE STOLEN AND USED AND EXSPOITED
    OF BRIAN POSEY
    I TS SAD TOO ME
    SO I HAVE LEARNED A VERY HARD LESSON
    THAT THERE IS SCAMMERS AND I DONT WANT TOO EVER GO THROUGH. IT AGAIN AND THAT’S WHY I AM PUTTING MY STORY OF THIS JEFF POSEY OUT THERE ON ALL THE SCAM SIGHTS
    SO LADIES BE WEAR OF THE POSEY SCAM IT’S OUT THERE I DONT WANT TOO SEE ANY OTHER WOMEN BE A VICTIM OF ROMANCE SCAM
    BE SAFE SINCERELY TAMARA,!!
