| Online romantic scam Sgt. Henry Hill, age 38 living in NY, approached on Adam4Adam in September 2013. Sent emails saying he was in Kabul, Afghanistan on tour. Claimed he was raised in Tay.or Mill, Kentucky, father and sister died in car accident when he was 8, mother still living in Taylor Mill in northern Kentucky where he was raised. He said he went to University of Toledo (hotel management), worked for a hotel for three years, and then IBM. Joined US army 9 years ago. Said he had been stationed at Ft. Drum and bought a house in Central Islip on Long Island. At first he wanted money so he could buy some device so he could correspond and not have to wait for a computer. I denied. He was supposed to go on leave in February but said he might have a chance to get out earlier than his two additional years by taking a position in Benin with the UN. He sent a letter of Appointment from the United Nations Department of Political Affairs from Jeffrey Feltman with also Lt. Gen. Steven A. Hummer Deputy commander for military operations in Africa. When he claimed he got there he said he didn\'t have any money, no decent food or living conditions and wanted assistance. I refused. Since he after two months of constant emails claimed love and was mushy about it. I said I would be a friend and kept challenging him saying nothing would happen until he returned to the states. He had sent pictures of a nice looking young black guy in an army Sergeant uniform (looks like Hill on the name plate), another with a black motorcycle MC organization vest with the name of Hill on it. Sent various pictures of a nice looking black guy, fairly thin, sometimes shaven head, bow tie, etc. About twelve pictures. Claimed he would be back to states in May 19th which was on the two month letter of appointment. He said he would call 3/27/2014 after I challenged him again saying he wanted to address these issues. He called several times some where blocked others had number above but never initially left message. He finally called from the above number which I had determined looked like airtel Nigeria mobile phone 1-234-701-461-3802 number. He had an accent (sounded African to me)which was not American or from Kentucky. Even though he said he knew I would not send him any money he wanted a favor. I told him it was clear he was not from the US and not the person he had claimed to be over the past six months. He hung up. He sent emails every few days over the period. He claimed to have had a lover Kenneth for four years who had died of lung cancer several years ago and was lonely that was why he claimed he was in love with me. He only requested money when he was in Kabul once and in the last two weeks almost constantly when he claimed to be in Benin. Earlier research had found no Henry Hill which owned property in Central Islip but one near with interestingly the same age |
