Back in 2013-2014 I was contacted through Facebook messenger we had friends in common so I didn't think anything weird about it but I was speaking to this guy for about a year before he asked me for my bank account information he was going to make deposits in my account to help me out financially as a loan and I was supposed to pay him back eventually well he made some deposits the checks cleared and I was able to keep some of the money and sent him the rest through MoneyGram and Western Union so I have the names of the people that I've sent the money toI would have to get the records from MoneyGram and Western Union of money that I have sent to people but basically he keeps contacting me through messenger he keeps making different Facebook accounts and he tells me it is him and that he needs help with money or wants me to pay to have a box shipped over to me and that contains everything I need I got money and also send him money and just trying to get me involved and different types of scams to get my money back eventually of what he's got me for now what I'm wanting to do is actually go forward with hopefully helping the police fine exactly who the person is that has been contacting me and hopefully arrest him eventually one day for scamming me for $15,000 I have not been able to open a bank account anywhere till I pay off that one bank that he screwed over pretty much

I have been scammed by Daniel Sorrensonus

I have been scammed by Daniel Sorrenson through Facebook he said he is a soldier from us army who is in a peacekeeping mission in Africa, looking for a wife and fall in love it home 🙄 but in day 2 or 3 we were chatting he made to chat through hangouts and then wanted me to send a request to the army for a call are but obviously never sent the email request I started lurking online and I found him on Instagram saying I’m his bio he is a single parent and pictures with his son when he told me he doesn’t have kids and said it was a scam and I needed to block that guy. I didn’t listen to him and later on I found more information about scammers and of course he said he loves me and stuff and I blocked him on Facebook and hangouts but later he sent me emails saying that I don’t love him and why I blocked him and if I don’t unblock him he will commit suicide. Also during the time chatting he sent pictures of that soldier but it were strange to me. Fortunately I never fell for his game and didn’t request the call card or sent money to him. I found out there’s more names on social media not sure which one is the right name of that real soldier.
