He is currently chatting me right now,i meet him on dating site named evermatch .thank god i saw it on google..he introduce himself as james potter.


I have just been chatting to him for 5mths


I’ve been a victim of a scammer. A Maine going by Joe Reyes said he was in Syria and needed boots. Being gullible , I sent money via pay pal through a third party scubbasky . I realized at that point it was bogus but I couldn’t get my money back. This guy sent me a message on fb and has no friends, which should of been my first clue and hardly any posts. If you see this guy Joe Reyes and it’s a picture of him and his son, it’s a scam.

Did you run his picture though PimEyes? That’s where you’ll get results. Sadly, you have to pay for it.

Never again

He went by the name of Harry on Facebook Dating. Said he was in the military stationed not far from me. Then all of a sudden when it’s almost time meet he is sent to Yemen. His thing was he was investigating in the oil that is used to make the COVID vaccines. Said he has made a bunch of profits by buying the oil and then selling it. But he needed other people to invest because they required a certain number before he could order it because he had already invested most of his money in property. He got… Read more »

The scammer who uses Joshua Porter’s photos is called Steven Barry, and we met on Telegram. He asked me for a Walmart card, and said he doesn’t have electricity anymore. When I said no, he called me stingy. Scammers like using God to appear Christian like. I can’t help but laugh because it’s obviously a scammer.


He hit me up and is going by Jim Porter born March 1980…. asked to talk on hangouts, then started saying he needed me to buy him a Steam card. He called and sounded like a creepy south African guy. Bad grammer, does not know basic American terms….. says he sounds different because he tavels.

Jane Doe.

The scammer using his pictures goes by the name Steven Barry on Telegram. He said he’s born in 1979, and has one daughter. His wife died in a car accident. Then he asked me for a Walmart card, and when I said no, he called me stingy.

Today his name is Edward Kalfman. He said he is still in the army and that his daughter is 6 living in California. This is some sick stuff. I asked for a photo with his holding a sign that says my name. He did it, but I can only assume it is photo shopped. What a horrible man.

Today he is George Bryan is the name he goes by and says he is from Walterboro, NC. Also is a widow bc he lost his wife during childbirth and has an 8 year old son named Henry.

Going by Jacob P. Richards on FB also. I tried to warn this poser that I was a military wife for 11 years and I knew he didn’t need money ~ that didn’t seem to register lol! He continued to try and convince me he was real, giving me bank info, and addresses to send the money etc…I not so kindly informed him that several of my good friends worked at the Pentagon (truth), and that they were ready to take immediate action on his behalf if need be lol! Needless to say, he shut me down so quick that… Read more »

Not a fool

Thank you for posting this!! I just called him out for scamming me. We connected through Plenty of Fish. He said his name was Joseph Porter and that his wife died of cancer five years ago. He listed himself as being in the Army, Airborne division for twenty years and was planning on retiring in four months. He used the phone number +1 (410) 941-2489. After sending him the link to this article he quickly disappeared.


Does he send video to the women he scams he hit me up on tick tok he sent a video and tried to call he is going under Johnson porter he is block now


He messaged me on tik tok and hangout he said he can’t access his bank but he was under Christopher porter


The scammers cannot call! If he video calls you and is him… then it is him! But I do talk with the supposed real one and says wants to marry me and he video called me, but the inage was not 100% clear. Looked like he was Joshua M. Porter. But he asks me for money says has to go home from Afghanistan and has no money cause they do not pay them till december and bla bla bla I am heartbroken

Kenitra Campbell

Yes my dumb self let the factitious person get me to but now he is going by the name of April Porter on WhatsApp stating he’s from California he is in the Us Army using a Google number Stating he’s fighting and Afghanistan Kabul Google number is (424) 242-3593 people please be aware report if you get anything suspicious from this heartless person. It’s to much going on in the world today and to let this devil add to the equation we must do what we can so others want fall to be Victims.

Jurriena Vos

There came a man on my hangouts with the name of the Darren Rosendahl Porter.

Marita Bergman

Hej! Jag har en del bilder på Joshua M. Porter. Den som kontaktade mig kallade sig för Mike Jerry och kontaktade mig på Facebook. Och även på Hangouts. Han blockerade mig på Facebook. Han sa att han hade en son som skulle på utflykt med skolan, och han själv hade ingen möjlighet att ordna fram pengar till det. För han var kirurg och var bland militärerna i Afghanistan. Och det fanns ingen möjlighet för honom att få fram pengar där. Nu har jag inte hört ifrån honom på ca 3 veckor. Jag skickade aldrig några pengar. Så han kanske förstod… Read more »

The Facebook page I got with his picture belongs to kwsrtemaa.Juliet.96. He or she also used the name Joshua M Porter. I went back to hangout and sent this person a note letting them know I had their web name and then blocked him or her and then deleted the hangout app. I received four different army men friend requests in a matter of days. That’s when I got suspicious and when I looked closely all were scammers. Blocked all


That’s supposed to be kwartemaa.Juliet.96
