A scammer pretended he is U.S. Army General Joseph Dunford


I received an email from a guy user name is "fightingjoe007" yesterday on AFF. He said he is U.S. Army General Joseph Dunford. I immediately knew he is a scammer from his email writing skill. I am 58 going on 59 soon, how can he said "you are so cute". If he is the General Dunford, why he has time on Asia Friendfinder 24 hours online?? I copied his email to me below, hope it will show here. I also reported to Asia Friendfinder on him. I Google the real "U.S. Army General Joseph Dunford" and I believe that guy who emailed me is NOT the real General Dunford.

but the thing is that the good once are hard to find.. I will be Glad

to read from you so we can get to know more about each other via email

to email if you don't mind.. here is my email address Asia Friendfinder

I can't show his email address because Asia Friendfinder won't allow me. Ladies, if you received the same emails, please block him and report him.

I couldn't upload General Dunford's wife photo. Please Google "General Joseph Dunford wife", you will see Ellyn stood beside her husband, the real General Joseph Dunford Jr. who is happily married. Also there are many "Scam Warning" about people used his photos to romance scam women.

I won't fall for those scammers' tricks. They are always "windowed with one child", wrote stupid emails, poor spelling and grammar, sweet talks such as "drop dead gorgeous", beautiful, cute, if you don't mind. The real qualified men won't write those words. They always provided their email addresses to chat outside and wrote "I am new here and NOT here often", "my subscription will expire today". I think they sent the same email to many girls to prospect stupid girl.

I won't be impressed by "General" because they associate with gun, weapon, bomb, death, war, .... I don't like soldiers either. It doesn't mean I am NOT patriotic, but I don't see soldiers are heroes. The scammers didn't know me. I fight back, report them and soon they are "deactivate accounts". Ha, ha, ha....

    Quoting 1ClassyLady:
    I have received more scam emails after I posted this blog. They always said "if you don't mind". What's matter with those stupid scammers? Low IQ? All of them have same teacher??

I detest the ignorance of scammers, that level of stupidity is something that simply goes beyond reasons. It serves to show the low levels within society as an over-all, these people are missing the element of dignity and integrity. Their desperation makes them a menace and a danger. .

goannaoil and beyondfantasy3:

I have 22 blogs here and you two have many responses to my blogs. You should know that I actually a very nice person. My blogs can teach people to write good profile, real estate timing, religion, politics, current events, .... I always call myself "Taiwanese American" because I have dual passports. I have been in USA longer than in Taiwan. I am different from the Chinese from China. I have my own opinions and stand firmly with my thoughts. I spent my time to write my blogs that might help people in some ways and learned from others too. However, sometimes people don't appreciate what I wrote.

Everything I said is true. I don't lie. I am attracted by intelligent people and vice versa. I have many friends in different professions. I keep 3 very close friends. Friendship is important in the life journey. They know my story.

I am happy for who I am. What sad about? Friendship last long time.

You are NOT my type anyway. I've NEVER read your profile. I'm NOT interested in you. Look somewhere else. Good luck in your searching. Good-bye.

He probably will but I did what I could to remove him out of AFF. You have done lots of work to find out those women using models or porno pictures. You have helped guys to fall into those scams, I did this blog to help some innocent girls to fall into "U.S. Army General" scam.

I usually kept quiet when I got scam emails, but this time this guy pretended General Joseph Dunford and sent me a silly email to test me. I originally just blocked him and click report. But since yesterday was Sunday, I decided to call Chinese FriendFinder and made complaint. My phone call to Chinese FriendFinder worked.

Both you and I have done our work to stop the crimes to help naive people fell into scams. That's all.

For the past 10 years, I read many thousands of profile, received many hundreds of people's emails, of course, I recognized who is scammer, who is real person. All 68 persons I met are real, intelligent, highly educated, rich, financial secured/ responsible, encumbrance, ... I trust my instinct and intuition. I know what I want, who I want although sometimes, I can't get who I want.

"Trust" is the key word on internet dating. Because there are too many scammers (they are dumb, I can recognize them by reading their profiles and emails).

Let's talk about real people. There are still have many obstacles to overcome. Age, distance, religion, political opinion, personality, ..... I set the bar high, so it is NOT easy to find the qualified persons. Some people with entrepreneurial charisma/vision, I like them, but they want girls 1/2 of their ages, so I am NOT qualified. Distance over 60 miles is very difficult to last long.(bad traffic is a problem) All my dates are atheists or NOT religious. I can't get along with very religious "God fear" persons. As "Politics", I can tolerate a little bit Republican but stand on my opinion. As height, guys have to be taller than me in 5'8" to 6'3". So, as you can see, I am very picky but still I can meet 68 qualified men and keep 3 very close friends to email daily and they always reply. I gained knowledge from them in different area. I talk to banker with financial, talk to orthodontist for English vocabularies (my ex is a dentist too), talk to physicist with science. They know I like the banker the most. We have never run out of topic to talk about current events, new high tech products, politics, ..... We have good time to email each other.

"Friendship" I do have 3 very good friends, but NOT romance. Everyone has "Trauma" from the past relationship. At my age group, we are NOT as courageous as we once young.

I have said too much about my dating. I provided so much information in my profile, blogs, but people still don't know who I am. I can easily to get a date but NOT the "Mr. Right" for me. I still won't lower my standards & criteria.

p.s. I am NOT a member, so since Feb 28, 2014, I can't read any profile on Chinese FriendFinder or SFF

Read my other blogs. You don't know me. I have met 68 guys including 6 MD (3 psychiatrists, Internist, pathologist, podiatrist) , 7 PhD (Chemist, Economist, Physicist, 2 in Education, College professor), 4 attorneys, 4 CEO, 1 DDS (Orthodontist), 2 commercial airline pilots, 2 CPA, many MBA, and engineers (aerospace, mechanical, civil, ..), General Manager for Western regional car dealership, ..... I know their real name, I Google them, ... before I met them.

I still keep 3 very good friends. I like a banker CEO/President/Chairman for 8 years. We email few times every day, phone call sometimes, lunch sometimes. He has 1 HQ and 3 branches (4 banks) and making couple million a year, not counting his Real Estate and stocks. One orthodontist for 7 years but lives 90 miles away. One PhD physicist who emails with me many emails a day. He is very intelligent.

My best years are 2005 to 2007. I have so many dates on weekends. I have same profile on many websites. Most of them from other places. But I met a Pathologist, an Orthodontist, an Attorney, an PhD Economist, Harvard architect,.... and many others from AFF.

That banker taught me when to sell my property (2007) and when to buy property (2011). I made a fortune following his advices. He is my best friend but too busy for his businesses. He has big loss for his divorce in 1996, so he won't want another marriage. He has been daunted by "Community Property Law" and so do I.

You don't know me. I am a multi-Mi I have to stop here.

And your real name is pharmacist2 ?

Robert:

What is your IQ? Don't make me laugh at you.

That guy provided his personal email address but Chinese FriendFinder won't allow me to post it and Chinese FriendFinder put Asian Friendfinder instead. There is a rule on Chinese FriendFinder and SFF you can't provide your email address on the first two emails. I am on Chinese FriendFinder since Aug 2004. I know very well.

You have read my profile (shows on my "who's viewed me"). You should know my job is a pharmacist and I provided my first name in my profile. Fore someone who is really cares will read my profile carefully to know my first name.

One of a ridiculous scammer who emailed me "What are you doing for living?" Without doubt he couldn't read "pharmacist" on my user name. I am proud of my job and used that for my user name.

My first name is NOT Eureka either (I'm NOT Erika, or Erica either). I have enlarged my first name in my profile.

The real U.S. Army General Dunford has two master degrees in "Art". He won't write an email to me "You are so cute" or "if you don't mind" twice. If an U.S. General wrote such a lousy email, this country has no talent people. I ain't dumb.

Better "Safe" than "Sorry".

Those scammers always write very childish emails. That guy wrote "if you don't mind" twice. Yes, I do mind that's why I reported him. He has no idea that I has been on Chinese FriendFinder since August 2004. Ha, ha, ha.... I have seen all kinds of trick in the book. I am a very cautious person (my job trained me), so I read emails and profiles very carefully. I make sure they know the English grammar and spelling. I am NOT an easy person to be cheated.

Today is Sunday, I have plenty of time to check real General Dunford and reported him to Chinese FriendFinder after I confirmed my doubt.

I have received many scammers' emails. I always block them, report them. But this guy pretended to be U.S. Army General that really pissed me off. I decided to call Chinese FriendFinder and reported him. His profile has been deleted as "Deactive Account" 1/2 hour after I made the call.

The scammers probably sent the same emails to hundreds girls. They chose me, I will fight back. I am sick about those scammers always provided their email addresses to chat outside. I've NEVER chatted outside before I can trust that person.

Internet is a convenient tool for people to communicate, but scammers use internet to scam, hack computer virus (I spent $150 twice to clean my computer virus after clicked my friend's links. Actually he didn't send, the virus sent the link to everyone on his email list automatically and I am on his email list).

I posted this guy's email to warn other girls because I am really pissed. I saw a fake "General Petraeus" profile on Chinese FriendFinder for 3 - 4 days. I Google the real General Petraeus profile on Wikipedia. Few days later, the real General Petraeus revealed his "extramarital affair" in front of the world. That was real ridiculous for the real General and the fake person who posted his profile on AFF.

You have disappeared for a while and changed your user name too. What has happened?
