| Romance Scam Using Stolen Pics and Indentiey of US Service Members I met Captain Howard Mark Jordan ( sent me this description of his job under this this yahoo chat id howardme78: Am captain for US.Air force...fighter squadron,a specialized training pilot,a fighter wing and an air expeditionary wing.I have also held leadership positions as an operations crew,flight,training,standardization and evaluations,and current operations.right now am in Afghanistan leading some groups of troops down there for peace keeping mission) (goes by the nickname Howie) about 2 and 1/2 months ago on a dating site. He wasn\'t even my first choice, but he was persistent and won me over. He is supposedly a university graduate with the absolute worst English and grammar I have ever seen, but I did attribute this to chatting on line because my chats make me look like an un-educated idiot (no spell check). He said he was a widow, when the correct term would be a widower with 2 children a girl aged 12 and a boy aged 7, who were living with his sister in his house in the UK (my kids are with my sister in London and i am always with them every weekend when i am not out on mission ... I have high school friends in the Military and this did not ring true but I ignored it ) I researched him and came across a page on a well know social media website and the pictures matched but not his profession or employer. Within weeks of starting an email and chat relationship with this guy he was telling me he was in love with me, and asked me to marry him, he was in the process of retiring and wanted to take his leave and come spend time with me to plan our wedding. l also received what looked like \'official\' documents from the DOD at email address firstname.lastname@example.org regarding his leave and how I could make payment. He was originally from Calgary on the dating site and as I have been to Alberta this was all plausible. More recently we have been fighting via yahoo chat because I will not send him more money to \'pay\' for his replacement, this never felt right but I ignored my gut instincts. Now he is on the same website under a new user name but with the same profile picture is now from another city and province Don Jordan from Montreal with an email address email@example.com and the user name on the dating site is loveloollife111 this was the second one that the site sent me, the first time he was under the name Howard Jordan firstname.lastname@example.org and then because of possible hacking by the Taliban changed his email address to email@example.com also has used firstname.lastname@example.org as well as email@example.com. He is now using the name Donald Jordan with the email address of firstname.lastname@example.org this guy is a con artist and although it is too late for me it is not to late to educate others. This guy even sent me a picture on July 11th, 2012 to \'prove\' his love and devotion so that I would continue to buy into his nonsense. I am done believing his garbage but anything I can do to help other women from being scammed I am happy to do it.|
