Discuss Sherry's answer to: Did General Carter Ham get a divorce?

I don't personally know, but if you're chatting with someone on a dating site, you are probably chatting with a scammer. It happened to me and I've seen multiple profiles on multiple sites.  My advice---- report it to the site and the FBI.  It's  big scam using photos of military men and setting up bogus sites.

I think I have been "introduced" to a scammer through SKYPE.  He presents himself as General Ham.  However, his grammer is broken....if this is the General, he may benefit in some English classes.  It's a scam in my opinion.

 
Sammi Thinks this answer is Helpful:

I too was approached on the singles' dating site POF.com (Plenty of Fish) by a scammer. He uses the ID of "CarterFHam", and impersonates Gen Ham as a divorced man. The photo he uses looks like a photo of Gen. Ham. We sent a couple messages back and forth on POF, but I was still wary. He wanted me to communicate with him on SKYPE, but I was not comfortable with that. I gave him my Yahoo email address which doesn't have any personal information with it. Now he is trying to get me to add him as a contact on my Messenger account on yahoo. He is using the ID of "GeneralCarterHam2011."  This guy needs to be caught. So many women are fooled by scammers, and some are even killed by them. And jerks like this can really try to cause a lot of trouble for people like the General. From what I've seen by checking online, it looks as though he and his wife Kristi sp. are still very happily married! God bless them!  Be careful out there, people, and stay safe!  "Sammi"

I too have been approached by someone calling themselves General Carter Ham of Africom.  He says his wife died of lung cancer!!  His email is gencarterham49@yahoo.com    So if you are approached by him..... dont believe him at all!!

I, too was contacted by an imposter posing as General Ham.  This persons email is gencarterham49@yahoo.  He sent me a photo of his supposedly adopted son who is Black.  The real General Ham is very happily married to the love of his life, Christi and they have a beautiful daughter.  Don't these brave men have enough to worry about without these horrid creatures trying to scam people using their good names?

I am being contacted at the moment right now by an impostor who claims to be General Carter F. Ham. He said his wife is dead, too, and that he has a black adopted son in Ghana, for whom I shall pay a lot of money. His email adress is: fredcarter2000@yahoo.com

He found me first on wayn.com. I fell very much in love with him and can´t believe this all really.  He told me very intelligent things for nearly three months now which all have worked out right, concerning parents and jobs and clothes and Jesus. I found back to Jesus through him!! It was really only through him, and I spoke to his black son in africa, too. And he is really wise, too and told me lots of things that would happen to me, and they did happen just like he told me. So am I in a parallel world or what is happening here?
