Individual not Company

In July, 2011; a person contacted me via He said he was in the US Army. (Sgt. Benjamin Edwards) After several weeks of writing each other and him saying he was transferred from Iraq to Soel South Korea; he said his son's birthday was coming up and he was unable to send the boy living with his uncle in Accura, Ghana anything for his birthday. That was the first time I sent $ 442.00 on August 23rd.
My Money Trannsfer Control Number: 7393605178

The communication continued. He then asked me for some money to buy a computer to monitor his 'business transactions' so everything would be in order when he retired soon. That time I sent $2,040.00 on September 8, 2011.
My confirmation number: 73289384

Well, he professed his undying love for me...sent me some lovely yellow roses, a teddy bear, and candy. Then for my birthday (early August, I received a cake). The communications continued daily.

Crazy me, I had fallen for this person.

He again asked me for money to pay for his son's home schooling-I had to beg and borrow for this one. $4.000.00 $45.00 transfer fees. This was sent directly to uncles (Benjamin Lamtey) bank.

The address I was given for the Uncle:
Benjamin Lamptey
121 Santana Ln
Accra, Ghana 00233
Phone Number: 23326686414

I added a few dollars to the amount for my gas, driving etc.

about a month ago, the truth came out...he is not a military man, the military confirmed this for me.

ever photo he ever sent me came from and search for FrmrCmndo, up will come Ralph Edwards.
Another facebook link found - and!/group.php?gid=246733190533&v=wall (look at the pics - found some more of 2 of pics and then page 5)

The person writing to me was actually Benjamin Lamptey, 39 year old black man.

I have saved every piece of communication from him to me and back. Even from the son and some from poor old uncle Ben (that doesn't exist).

I do not know what you can do to help out with this, maybe just stop him from scamming other women like myself that are lonely
and just looking for a friend.
