The criminal may ask for you to call or to text back. In all of these cases, the criminal wants you to call or text back.
These calls are likely part of what is commonly known as the " Scam," "Ring and Run Scam," or "One Ring Scam," and the numbers displayed on your caller ID or sent in a text message are likely premium numbers. You will be charged--sometimes quite a bundle--for any calls that you make, or text messages that you send, to them. What should you do?

I helped her in her work, support her family, spending much time with her as much as I could. Going with her to the beaches, the movies and a lot of interesting places just trying to make her the happiest woman in life. I know she is regretting it by now. Her parents once called me and were apologizing for her but I already made my mind. I do not get angry. It happens once in a while but I know how to control myself. Will like you to also send me some pictures of you too.
I am concluding this letter here but remember this am serious about my words Have a good day. Hugs, Haggards I highlighted the glaring holes in this guys story, especially the rank. What a weird term they use. Again, judging by the size of each of these photos, they were most likely snagged from a MySpace or Facebook page.
Anyway, on to the next. What a promotion for this guy, huh? I highly encourage you ladies being scammed by these guys to actually do a Google search on military ranks. The first one goes by the name MikeJones Yahoo. The other 3 are supposedly the same person and goes by the name SGT.
Again, notice the rank of this LTC!! No explanation about why the name and email address are different. Probably tired of creating new Yahoo accounts and keeping up with them. Same story wants ts2 money and transit money. Says he was in 24 years, wants to retire and marry his victims and has money aplenty. Soldiers can pay for it themselves. Now in Afghanistan and will come back in 11 June. The interesting thing about these photos is that the scammer actually took the time to remove the name tags from the photo.
Could be anyone here! The first 4 photos are of a young James Ruddock and his family.

He also says to some women that he was supposed to be in Afganistan with a house also in the UK that he was going to retire to a different location. He also uses the name of Steve Ruddock and Mark Ruddock as well.
This one is funny, but the person using the above photos claims to be a Captain Brown Mark Mark Brown? This guy is such a tool, he tries to use General Odierno in his scam.
