The Satellite Phone Variant In this variant, the scammer may suggest that he is about to be deployed to another area where there is no regular phone service and possibly reduced access to the internet or chat.In order to keep in touch, he will suggest a phone (possibly a satellite phone or tellex) that will allow contact while he is deployed in a remote area.Like most romance scams, they will be quick to fall in love and display most of the common characteristics of any other African romance scam: Bad English and grammar Not paying much attention to what you say Rarely answering questions Over use of terms such as "babe" Telling you how attractive you are and how much you mean to them often and early Possibly having children at home being looked after by a family member Stolen poetry being sent with claims they wrote it themselves.Wife left them after infidelity or killed in an accident In almost all cases the scammers will claim to be currently serving in Iraq or Afghanistan however IP checks will usually place them in Africa or increasingly Malaysia.The scammer may suggest that with this phone service future phone calls would be free or a greatly reduced price and often fixed as part of a contract.The scammer will often insist it is the only way to keep in touch.At this stage they will often refer to you as their spouse.

The "Saddams Millions" variation One more twist the scammer may take is to tell you that he has discovered a large sum of money and he will offer you a large portion of it to take delivery of it.This scam is performed by male scammers using stolen pictures of male military personnel.There have however been limited reports of scammers pretending to be female military personnel as well.This is much closer to the much older scam referring to Saddam's millions which was commonly used by scammers without a romantic component.In order for the money to reach you, a courier of some kind will need to be paid and this is where the scam victim comes in.See link below for further information on African (Nigerian) romance scams.
