They both told me they were in the service, one in Afghanistan and one on a peace mission in Nigeria. They both asked me for money to pay for them to get leave out of the service. I told both of them I had no money. But Peter James Smith told me he would put $2,300 in my bank account from his commanding officer and then I send it to him western union. Well this was a red flag that went up when I tried to send it and they told me to go to my bank to see what was wrong. The bank told me a check was put into my account and it was fraudulent and that they were shutting my account down and I can't ever have a account with them again if though I told them I had no idea it was fraud.

Met him on Facebook. Talked to him for about a week and a half. I fell for him. He said he loves me. He asked me to send shipping fees to a email ([email protected] so I sent it with hesitation. I told him it was a scam. He said trust him. I did. They wanted more money. I told him it a scam. I wanted my money back. Made him made. He deleted his Facebook and told me they where going to send me a confirmation number. I haven't heard from him. He suppose to be in kubal, Afghanistan in the army. He suppose to be in a hospital because he was supposedly wounded in action. I am a widow woman with two children. I really could use my money back.
