I had someone contact me through face book telling me he was a soldier in the U.S. Army. I fell for it hook line and sinker. He turned on the charm then started asking for money saying that he needed an operation for his stomach ulcer and the army wasnt feeding him I took out several loans and in the end I had nothing left and he still kept on asking for more then he turns around and tells me his son has been hit by a truck and needs money for the operation. He showed me a picture of some child in a operating theatre environment and the child on the hospital bed was a toddler.
The pictures I'd seen of his son the boy looked to be at least 5 to 6 years of age so after this i called it off but too little to late.
