Captain Changeroo

The "Army Guy" Scams are becoming the most prevalent and damaging scams today, so it is nice when I get one so I can torture these fools a little. On Facebook, West Africans posing and American Soldiers so they can scam women is such a huge problem that there are groups formed to help combat this. I don't think we have a lot to fear from this moron, because he is way too stupid to scam anyone. In this short scambait, all of the emails were replies from previous emails, so all of the messages back and forth are contained in one string – this is uncommon, and does make a difference in this case because this fool uses three different names and then denies it, when if you scroll down the email, you can see it! I told you he is dumb! My emails are in blue, his/hers are in black, my comments in red. Happy reading!

I know you would be surprised to read from someone relatively unknown to you. My name is Sgt.Billy Robert F , a member of the U.S. ARMY USARPAC Medical Team, which was deployed to Iraq at the beginning of the war in Iraq.

I would like to share some highly personal classified information about my personal experience and role which I played in the pursuit of my career serving under the U.S 1st Armored which was at the fore-front of the war in Iraq.

Though, I would like to hold back certain information for security reasons for now until you have found the time to visit the BBC website stated below to enable you have an insight into what I intend sharing with you, believing that it would be of your desired interest one-way or the other.

Also, could you get back to me having visited the above website to enable us discuss in a more clarifying manner to the best of your understanding. I must say that I'm very uncomfortable sending this message to you without knowing truly if you would misconstrue the importance and decides to go public. In this regards, I will not hold back to say that the essence of this message is strictly for mutual benefit between you and I and nothing more.

I will be vivid and coherent in my next message in this regards, meanwhile, could you send me an email confirming that you have visited the site and that you have understood my intentions? I will like you to get back to me with full interest towards this project.

To our success,

He introduces himself as Sgt. Billy Robert, but his email header says "Capt Reed Pollock".

What are you talking about?


Greetings to you me friend i am in need of your help. Just like my mail reads am soldier with a special unit of the US ARMY which was sent to Iraq and presently with the way things are going down here, coming out of here alive maybe very difficult. But am confident in the fact that i can trust you to make a trustworthy partnership with me.

All that is required of you is to send me a mail confirming that i can earn your trust thats all.

Thank you,

He is sticking with the Captain I guess...

Could you please tell me what you are talking about?



I have already told you, my life here in Iraq is largely dependable on all the help i can get from the outside world and that is why i need to know if i can trust you?

All i need right now is to get your confirmed trust assured to me and my friend who will be leaving here to the UK will contact you as soon as he arrives the UK, however send me your personal information if you feel and know that i can trust you. Thank you very much.

Best regards,
Capt Pollock

This next email is hilarious because James is currently involved in another scambait with an FBI Agent whose name is J. Fredrick. Small world, huh?


How are you today sir, hope ok can u please respond 2 my email. Thank you.

J. Fredrick

I think he meant to send this to James from the FBI Guy, but he replied in the Captain Reed Pollock string of emails.

Did you forget your own name? First you say it is Billy Robert, then you are emailing from an account that says "Reed Pollock" and now you sign it "J. Frederick".

Sounds like you are confused...

Mr James,

I have never emailed you from any of such accounts please check it again please, i am Reed Pollock a US MARINE. Am in need of your help in other to help me process a few things, and these are my person belongs.

Send me your contact details so my friend in the UK can help your out over there. Thank you

Reed Pollock,
Us army,

Try scrolling down this email where you say your name is Sgt. Billy Robert F. And you also say you are in the Army, not the Marines.

Or scroll down and look where you sign your name J. Fredrick

I highlighted them in red for you to see.

Mr James,

Simply say you are not interested in helping me than playing this crazy game. Cos i have told you this before i dont know any billy or fredrick ok. Thank you


So you can’t see even in this thread of emails that the first email you sent me says that your name is Sgt.Billy Robert F? And did you know that there is a difference between the US Army and the Marines?

Sounds like you are extremely confused or extremely stupid.

Mr James,

Are you god that you can no make mistakes. Am Reed Pollack and it very stressful her in Iraq where I do my duty as america soldier so please excuse my mistake. Are you willing to help or not?


Okay, you are excused. Let me get this straight first – are you in the US Army or are you in the Marines? You said both, but that can’t possibly be right. Unless it is true that you didn't know there was a difference.


You are joker and I see u in hell bastarde idiot

Joker? Do you mean that I knew you were a scammer and not a real soldier because you weren’t even smart enough to remember your own name? Or because that you speak English like a poor pathetic West African beggar? Or because you don't know the difference between the Army and Marines? Yes, this is true – I knew you were a poor, stupid scammer – it was blatantly obvious – you are way too stupid to do this for a living! May I suggest a career in toilet scrubbing or goatfucking – that seems more up your alley.


I tried to rebait this fool with my “Debbie Dawson” persona, but there was no response.
