I saved our last two e-mails in order to have the e-mail header with his IP address.
I am so ashamed of myself although I did nothing wrong and am the target in this scenario.
This "Jake Brown" and I chatted almost daily in the evening via Yahoo Instant Messenger (his Yahoo Messenger ID and e-mail address are: [email protected]). I noticed from the beginning his grammar was poor; I asked if he was from Africa or Russia and he insisted he was American.
At times he blamed it on his inability to type well/fast.
Following is Jake Brown's e-mail header: Return-Path: Authentication-Results: mta129re2.from=yahoo.com; domainkeys=fail (bad sig); from=yahoo.com; dkim=permerror (bad sig) Received: from .64 (HELO n1a.ac4.yahoo.com) (.64) by mta129re2.with SMTP; Tue, -0700 Received: from [.26] by n1.ac4.with NNFMP; -0000 Received: from [.182] by t3.ac4.with NNFMP; -0000 Received: from [127.0.0.1] by omp123ac4.with NNFMP; -0000 Received: (qmail 16546 invoked by uid 60001); -0000 Received: from [126.96.36.199] by web59911ac4.via HTTP; Tue, PDT Date: Tue, -0700 (PDT) From: Jake Brown Spokeo is a unique background check service that reserches people by EMAIL.
They search through the social networks and dating sites databases, to see if a person with such email is registered somewhere.
He said he was born 12/1/63 in Miami, FL, his father was in the medical field of the U. Army and later worked at a gold mining company in Ghana. He claimed to have no family and that after his parents died 16 years ago he joined the military.
Foolishly, I gave him my home address when he asked me for it because he had gained my trust although I still felt something wasn't entirely right.
I just can't believe that I, almost 48-years-old, fell victim to someone like this; a ruthless person that has the audacity to use a U. soldier's identity to commit criminal activity on women for money.
Thank God I wasn't weak and naive enough to drain my savings and send the money. I actually hope and pray the soldier in the photos is innocent.
Within two days of giving him my home address, I received a dozen red roses with a teddy bear, but little did I know what lied ahead.
