    Dear AFI,

    Is it real? I mean can a Major General from US have public email account? He also put his picture which are same on the wikipedia. It's just a pitty that this big man with his position is been used his name to such a bad guy try to cheat woman and doing a bad things. Can I get the contact or address of the General? I fee sorry for him.

    thanks,
    Pupung

    Has anyone else seen this person?
     
  5. He contacted me on Skype

    I immediately knew he was a scammer as he couldn't spell. Said "ya" instead of you and called me "dearest love". He then asked me for a financial favor. I told him his spelling was off and he was obviously a scammer from another country- that if he wanted to ever fool someone to learn how to spell. It was pretty funny! I then blocked and reported him.

    watch out for these unscupulous scammers!

    I was contacted by a "gentlemen" and I use the term lightly, claiming to be Major General William B. Garrett. He claimed to be divorced for five years and looking for the perfect woman. The use of his words was a dead give away, no one in that high ranking of a position in the Army would first of all, be looking for a woman on line, and second, never use the English language the way this character did.

    I hope ALL WOMEN are aware, or at least look into these scam artists!!! Let's not be fooled ladies.

    I am sure that the Major General has been informed of this horrendous scam and I hope he is able to do something to stop this.

    May God bless us all against these low-lifes!!

    If you send the emails to the FBI that is a good start. They deal with Impersonation issues.

    Hi, yes I know this person Lt William Robert Garrett, but not sure if he is the real one, or the imposter. I am doing my very best to find out.

    @ Jenny - Be very careful, it is highly likely he is a scammer. Do you want to share any further information with us, an email or an email address?

    Hi Shapphire, William Robert Garrett used the email address bobbygarrett601@gmail.com said that he was about to retire from the army, and was looking for a relationship with a view to getting married again. He seemed very genuine, with a great personality. Said his son was 23yrs old, said he would send a photo of his son. But someone said he's using a stolen identity, so I checked online. I have not answered any of his messages since. So don't think he will be in touch anymore. Still not sure if he was the real one it an imposter.

    @Jenny I can't see anything at present relating to the email address. This does not mean that he
    isn't a scammer. Scammers can change their email address frequently. However, from the tale he is telling you, he certainly sounds like a scammer.

    Images of Garrett are shown here, do you have the same? http://www.romancescam.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=31889

    Are you sure that the General I was chatting to was really a fake?

    I'm certain he wasn't even a general.
