___Well I begin by, saying that I risk my reputation, and intelligence by sharing my story with you. However the story is that important that I have to get it out there. Hopefully to stop this from happening to anyone else, that are as vulnerable, and trusting as I happen to be. It started because I was feeling very lonely, and wanted to find a new significant other. So I joined a singles website, called Seniors Meet, being 50 years young I thought that would be a good place for me to start.
___There I met this 52, year old American Soldier, that I started an on-line relationship with. This is just one of the pictures, he sent me as to his what his identity was. But I recently found out that this poor Soldiers Identity has been stolen by the real con artist. But what happened to me before I found this out, is very embarrassing but I have to share the truthabout this horrible man. So we met on the website, and carried on with an online relationship for about 3 to 4 month's. At which time he began to, tell me that he had fallen in love with me. ___Well during our talks I shared withhim, that I was in debt quite a bit. So I thought, he wouldn't want to be in a relationship withme. But instead he started telling me,that he would help me pay my bills off. And then once they were paid, he wanted me to send him some money to spend over sea's. Because he claimed that the U S Government, wouldn't let them have any of their own money over there. He said because they were given an allowance, to get everything they needed. But he wanted some money he said, to buy some Gold to bring home with him. That he was going to purchase in Africa before he returned to the United States. That he told me, he was going to use to start his own business. ___Well I felt that if he was going to be kind enough,to pay my bills so we could be together, when he came home here. I thought I could be kind enough to send him some of the money back. So he could purchase the Gold he wanted. What happened next was the beginning of the, hell. That I face financially now, because he did go on-line a nd make payments on my bills. At which time the credit card Companies, would give me as immediate usable money to charge all over with. So I withdrew during this process, and over several transactions. Approxiamately $22,000.00 thousand dollars that I sent to him. Before my credit card Company let me know, that all the payments he made were returned to them. From checking accounts that were stolen numbers, and accounts that had no money in them. ___So to make a long story shorter, I am now $22,000.00 thousand dollars more in debt, over the original amount of debt I already had on my own accounts. And there isn't a darn thing, that anyone can do to recover any of the money, because it was sent out of the Country. And because it was not this poor Soldier, I thought I was sending the money to. And they can only report to this Soldier that, someone has stolen his identity, and is using it to rip off lonely, and vulnerable women of their money. And at the same time he, ruins these poor ladies credit, and their reputations of being good credit card customers originally. ___This is a report I file on behalf of, The Real Soldier John Haggard, and for all the other vulnerable women out there, that the con man will go after. Using this I.D . because he knows it works, because I'm not the first women he has done this to. I found out from a website, under the Department of Defense that he has used this identity. To scam women as far back as, 2009 and still continues to use it. I find that a real shame since, the Department of Defense I'm sure has tons of resources at their disposal to track this con man down. Yet the have not stopped him after all these years. ___I have also reported this to my local law enforcement officers, The FBI, and the Secret Service. Which all of them told me they were unwilling to go after this jerk! I even told them, that I would help them to set him up, by sending him another payment. At which time they could have someone there to pick him up at the Western Union Station I was sending him the money too. But their excuse then was that, none of the Authorities in Africa would be willing to help them by, picking him up. I find that a very feeble excuse, for not wanting to go after this guy. Especially since it is American Credit Card companies that , these poor women are getting the money from to, send to him. ___So this is my challenge, to the Law Enforcement officers, The FBI, The Department of Defense, and the United States Secret Service. To join together their vast resources, and get this guy off the Con Artist Market. Or maybe they just don't care enough about the, Lonely, and VunerableWomen that he is stealing from. Maybe these Law Enforcement agencies, hate women so much that we are not worth working for. So that one day we might either get some of our money back. Or at least they could inform the Credit Card Companies know that, we women were scammed, just like the company was. So we could get our reputations back as being good customers again. ___Then I would also like to ask the American people, to complain and demand to these agencies known under the names. Of our Local Law Enforcement Officers, Department of Defense, The FBI, and the United States Secret Service. To get off of their making excuses as to why they can't catch this guy.. Tell them it is past time that they go after this evil man, and put him behind Bars, where he belongs. On behalf of the, Lonely, elderly, and vunerable Women who's lives he has destroyed financially. And to prevent him from harming anyone else. ___My next challenge is to the so called, Main Stream Media and I challenge them to take this Important Story. And report it to the American People that are still vulnerable, lonely, and are likely to fall prey to this very Established Con Artist. And second that you will investigate why the Government Authorities that I spoke about. Don't follow through with tracking this jerk down, to stop him from ripping off not only these poor victums. But he is also stealing thousands of Amercian Bank dollars, that will probably get written off and charged to the American tax payers. MSNBC my challenge begins with asking you to carry on with this story. And if you need to contact me at https://maria--lyn.newsvine.com . Because I have proof of the money I sent to this guy. I kept all the Western Union reciepts, from the numerous transactions.
