Military uses .mil for mail domain, NOT .com like hotmail

No one can be trusted these days. Military can also use any website to open an email. Not only their .mil. Duh!!! Who can stop us if we open a private email??? Who are you kidding?

Ask your unknown military acquaintance to send a test email from their .mil email, simple as that!

I have received several "threatening" emails from a so-called FBI. The real one uses .gov domain, they know where I am, they will send by US mail in an official eagle envelope, NEVER from a .com email! Further I traced one such IP to Vietnam, Oh! Come on, as if they fly one of their agents to Vietnam to contact someone in the US!

This Haggard is unbelievable, he circulated many photos all over internet. If this military Chris Haggard the real person concern of those women included me had been scammed, Why he doesn't put a stopper? If he is not part of this net working he could have done something! Can't help noticing he put out different photos again! Ladies please careful, the money they took from me was my lifetime savings. It hurts, so sad, I can't get over it!

... Ma'am,

This is one search result for the single and obscure photo
which you have posted above. The US authorities have full
knowledge that this man's photos are stolen as bait-pics.
Please understand that he is a victim of identity theft,
as you are a victim of cohersion and fraudulence. As an
active duty officer, he has been notified by the CID
that this is happening. Yet, he has his own job to do!
The problem is non-lethal and yet, so grand and outrageous
that the chosen course is one of self preservation outlined
in the second paragraph below. Am sorry that they found you!

FORT BELVOIR, Va. (March 23, 2010) -- Special agents from the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command are warning the American public to be vigilant of Internet scams and impersonation fraud -- especially those promising true love, but only end up breaking hearts and bank accounts.
Aca,!A'These perpetrators, often from other countries, most notably from Ghana, Angola and Nigeria, are good at what they do and quite familiar with American culture, but the claims about the Army and its regulations are ridiculous,Aca,!A? said Grey.

The U.S. has established numerous task force organizations to deal with this and other growing issues; unfortunately, the personnel committing these scams are utilizing untraceable email addresses on Aca,!A'gmail, yahoo, aol,Aca,!A? etc., routing accounts through numerous locations around the world, and utilizing pay-per-hour Internet cyber cafes, which often times maintain no accountability of use. The ability of law enforcement to identify these perpetrators is limited, so individuals must stay on the alert to protect themselves.

If this military Chris Haggard the real person concern of those women included me had been scammed, Why he doesn't put a stopper?

The real Maj. Chris Haggard is most certainly aware that his ID and photos are stolen by West-African scammers and used in scams ,the reality is no one can do anything about it ,no police ,no FBI as the scammers are in Africa and they do not have any jurisdiction to prevent these ID thefts ,so do not blame the poor man that his photos are stolen he is much as you a victim in this, it has affected his privacy as well when women who have been scammed by thieves who pretends to be him have contacted him personally and accused him to be a scammer.Found a article online about this Chris haggard.Only the scammers are the ones to be blamed in this no one else!

Officer: My identity was stolen to seduce and scam

Maj. Chris Haggard, a fire support officer at Fort Sill, Okla., picked up his office phone to an earful of cussing and yelling from a woman who said he had seduced her online and scammed her.

But Haggard had never heard of the woman. His photos and personal information have been stolen and used over and over again by con men in Africa to suck in lonely-hearted women on dating sites and swindle them out of their money.
“She was very upset and she accused me of scamming her, and I finally got her calmed down and told her it wasn’t me, and it’s been going on for at least a year and a half, and she wasn’t the first one,” he said.

This week’s Army Times discusses these scams with a few broken-hearted victims and what the Army’s doing about it. Thanks to blogger Master Sgt. C.J. Grisham of “A Soldier’s Perspective” for the introduction to Haggard, but we were unable secure him for the article *cough-public affairs-too-slow-cough*. We finally got to chat with him.

Haggard took to his Facebook page Monday to fight back, posting information about how the scam works and what victims duped by their ignorance of the Army need to know.
“The scammers use a family emergency as a vehicle to garner sympathy or their location is so bad–and I’m sure there are places in Afghanistan like that–that they don’t have access to money, and the civilians don’t know the Army has systems in place to take care of situations like this,” he said.

Since Fort Drum, N.Y., Criminal Investigations Command contacted Haggard in 2009 about the misuse of his image, he’s seen a number of photos of himself online, mostly from his OIF tour in 2007 and all lifted from his wife’s Facebook and MySpace pages:
Haggard at a restaurant in ACU’s and a cowboy hat, posing with an Iraqi counterpart in East Baghdad, flying in a Blackhawk with his 10th Mountain patch visible. (That’s how CID found him to tell him his photos were being misused.)
“CID told me they weren’t able to do anything about it, and that the FBI weren’t able to do anything about it either because they (the scammers) were in Africa,” he said.

Haggard now has credit monitoring, and he’s “sanitized” his Facebook profile of some personal details, but it sounds like a big headache.
He, his wife, brother and even one of his nieces have gotten phone calls from women claiming to have been in romantic online relationships with Haggard or, if they’ve already figured it out, someone posing as him.

“Personally, I haven’t had any repercussions but it does have the possibility of harming my reputation and I did get that one aggravated phone call that I want to avoid in the future,” he said.

“Someone’s using my name and my image in a criminal enterprise and that has the possibility of impacting my personal life and my career.”

ZIP CODE:00233

Military Micheal Haggard promised to repay me once he's out - back to New York because all his allowances deposited in the Bank of America. Those are few of the evidences how this scammer played with me.

Psychologically I am very much affected mentally and emotionally I'd been doing my best to saved someone life! How sickening was that using God and pleaded to God he is not a scammer!

Miss Marple,

Before I my traveled to US I contacted Maj. Chris Haggard, by FB he made friend with me, here is the evidence:
**** Chris Haggard confirmed you as a friend on Facebook‏

From:     Facebook (
Sent:     Thursday, 14 June 2012 8:52:22 PM***

To cut the story short we had those chat above pages; while I was in US recently before Chris got married to JB we were chatting and as well phone conversation. He given me this number while I was in US telephone no. 8064163829 begging me to send the amount to pay the courier so he can send me the check of $250.00 usd. He said send in this person name :
     Facebook User: if you can assist with 1,000 or 500 usd it will be better

     Facebook User: honey if you want to assist you can make the payment to this details via money gram or western union RON THOM address to windom minnesota

     Facebook User: i am now in Minnesota to see my friend and if you can move down it will be better then we meet here in Minnesota. i am presently in texas give me your direct line so i can call you now my dear

     Facebook User: honey i am now happy that i am speaking with you again i will not do any thing to hurt you babe i will love you till i die baby and i will be with you soon and promise me that you will take care of th

     Facebook User: honey here is the website to the courier company that will deliver the check to you

He unfriend/blocked me after but I saved all those chats. I still have more in my files and some of his emails as evidences that it was true I heard his voice an American accent. I was in US that time and that number is US I called him up.

I have doubts/questions somehow he is connected with this scammers. The only thing it can make my mind at peace if, he is not involved He could have done a withdrawal of all his photos to all websites by then will be not many women will get hurt with those younger days photos of him. The fact his look now is a lot different with those photos circulating in the internet websites.

Its now October 2013. This poor person whose identity is being splashed all over the internet is still being bastardized by the people that stole his identify. Not only is the scammer hurting those that he is communicating with (and yes, the little bugger is still active), I feel sorry for the poor guy. And, he's still using the same pictures.

I'm fortunate that I didn't loose any money to the scammer. Something from day one just didn't fit well. Perhaps it was poor grammar and spelling mistakes. How unfortunate to have everything in your life go so wrong - lost his parents at a young age, his wife messed around on him (he caught her in bed with another guy). He has full custody of his son ... but he resides with the ex while he is deployed? Majority of the story is the same.

Okay, the story took a turn for the ridiculous when he announced that he and his troop found a pot of gold (really, where is Lucky and his lucky charms?). Obviously the red bells were blinking!! This was my stop, and I got off the scam train here.

I have reported the scammer to my local police. They put me in contact with the Canadian authorities that look after internet scams. I didn't let on to 'Michael Haggard' that I didn't believe, but since I contacted the authorities I have not received any further emails from this offender.

Everyone, please be careful. If it's not sitting right with you, don't take a chance. If you're lonely call a friend. If you go on a dating site, try to only communicate with local people and don't keep those conversations on-going for long.

In the one month that I have been on dating sites, I have had the misfortune of encountering 4 scammers. Michael Haggard was the best though. Kudos to the person behind this one. But, trusting my instincts probably saved me a lot of heart ache and the loss of funds that I don't possess.
