MY REPLY to him.....
Good morning Terry.
It was nice to hear from you via email. I apologize if you feel like I am giving you a rough time but I am so aware that many unscrupulous
individuals out there are using photos of OUR Troops to con and scam American women out of money and items. There is promise of undying love, romance and lots of happiness and in the end those woman are being taken for a ride by lies and deceit.
These individuals use our Patriotism as a means to their personal end and it is so WRONG.
They leave behind a string of broken hearts, broken bank accounts, hurt, tears and much sorrow.
I am doing what I can to make sure that I am protected from this sort of act as well as trying to inform and protect others from these predators that pray on American woman.
The military has informed me that all our soldiers that are deployed are given a military email address that they can use to correspond with family and friends. Only REAL military personnel have these email addresses, no civilian or other entity can acquire one. I have been instructed on how to reach you via your military email address and I have sent a email to it. When I get a reply from that email then I will know for certain that you are indeed who you claim you are and then this will all be settled and not brought up again and then WE can move forward into a serious relationship. Until I get that reply, unfortunately, I, will have to remain cautious.
While you are in the trenches there, I am in the trenches here fighting for our troops to not have their Identities stolen by con artists that
are sitting in Nigeria or some other place scaming woman out of their money and leaving a trail of tears and broken hearts behind.
Not only are these woman being used and hurt but the REAL soldiers reputation is being hurt along with his family.
So just realize that I am not only protecting myself and other woman and familes but I am also trying my best to protect the real Sgt. Major Terry Wood. If you are indeed him then you will be and should be proud of me and what I am trying to do.
When others set out to deceive, it effects those of us who are true.
Wonder what he will think and do when he reads my reply to him.
I did send a email to Terry.Wood@us.army.mil
it has not come back as an unsendable email, address not found, so I will be interested in seeing what happens next with that. Foreigners have a very difficult time with the english language and its easy to spot in there sentence structure and grammar. The usage of the letter "S" seem to be a huge issue as well as "I".
Very Sad- hang in there. Pick yourself up and dust yourself off and then get pissed off about the whole thing. Don't beat yourself up. Get mad and get even by spreading the word about these bums.
I guess the thing that has saved me is that I was very cautious from the beginning, I was not going to let my heart get broken. I was skeptical and it has served me well.
I have been spreading the word on Facebook. I have provided this website link there I have also cautioned my friends to not put photo's of their soldiers on Face book or any other site because these people are stealing our soldiers id and lives.
Protect our troops overseas from those who wish to harm them and their familes. I have declared WAR on these scamers.
