That he was born and rised Austin Texas he says his 45 has a 5 yr daughter that supposed to have lost his wife giving birth to his daughter .He calls me wife and my lady tells me that he is in Syria and that he can’t call me .He says when he gets back we are going to get married
    His good I believed ever word he said .plus it doesn’t help that he’s easy on the eyes just this week he has tried to get me to give him my credit card number so he can put his salary on my card b******* very funny if I’m a f****** stem card for $50 to a hundred can’t do it I feel like a f****** idiot I’m just getting out of a 14-year relationship start all over the age of 50 he told me right in I don’t want to block him ever I like the way he talks to me makes me feel special I can’t handle my emotions I love him I will probably want to hear voices you made your decision be careful

  2. I was contacted by Mike Porter via Facebook messenger and not thru Hangout. Lives in Texas, only child, with parents in Orlando and I being scammed.  

  3. I am currently dating Joshua M. Porter by hangouts. I need to know if he is the real one. He says he is in Afghanistan and showed me his military ID and even video called me 3 times but the image was not very good he said due to the poor internet there. He says he is going to be 44, is widow for 2 years and has a 10 year old kid, Michael. Please. I need to know if I love a ghost! Thank you.

  4. So I just today got contacted by this man. He messaged me and added me on Instagram. Said he was new to the app and wanted to make friends. Asked me to talk on hangouts. He only told me his name was Porter, from South Carolina, stationed in Kabul Afghanistan, and has a 17 year old son who is in a military boarding school in Columbia Georgia (there isn’t one there FYI in the city). Have to say he’s good as talking. Had the time difference down and is a smooth talker. Didn’t ask for money but I have screen shotted the scam photo and totally going to send it to him the next time he messages me 😜

  5. He is now posing as porter Thomas Nilson if you need any info I reported him too plenty of fish

  6. almost 4-5 months ago i was notified in instagram his name is Bone Hester as he said his wife had died in birth their daughter 3 years ago, and their daughter also dead, he is from south carolina but he is british, he sends picture of him and his dog .. after we were writing together maybe almost month we move to whatapps and write on and talk and after we also moved to the hangout, he says he is US Army and in mid August he said he is going to Afghanistan for mission to be there for 10 weeks and will visit me here to Greenland when he finishes mission in Afghanistan. And now it’s already 10 weeks and he says he’s waiting for the list as to when he can leave, so I find out this weekend in that picture was Joshua. M Porter!

  7. The scammer is now going by the name of Bobby Will Porter. He claims he is a staff sergeant at the US Base Camp Blanding in Florida. He contacted me thru IG (instagram), gave me all the photos you see on this site. Called me honey, loved me, thought of me every minute of every day. Then, as of October 1st was being deployed to Syria. Even gave me a photo of him on the plane in full gear. The name Bobby is one of the guides from the camp. He never asked for money, called me a few times. Told me he was married for 3 years and is now divorced.

  8. 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 I actually felt the breeze hahahahaha! Ladies, come on!

  9. 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.

  10. 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

    1. 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

  11. 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.

  12. There came a man on my hangouts with the name of the Darren Rosendahl Porter. He asked money and I was so stupid and gived him all my money that I saw a name on a jacket. @sir.jumps.lot when I looked their I was shocked I gived my money to a scammer but their was also a bank involved the Xinglingbank so I didn’t thought that I was scammed the the bank is also scammers. So what’s out if you see a picture from Sstg Porter it is always fake. The real mister Porter has no time to scam so many people. Only I have no money more and have to go in dept restructuring. That is terrible I have nothing to say about my money anymore I cry a lot. Thank you

    1. Yes, he has a son. He is deployed in Afghanistan says he loves me (and I do too!) and on, he is from Los Angeles I have his address not going to tell here.

  13. 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 att jag inte trodde på honom. Han ringde röstsamtal på Hangouts ett antal gånger. Han själv lät inte så gammal och var rätt dålig på engelska.
