|+4 major stephen townsend contacted ON SKYPE BY SOMEONE WHO SAID HE WAS MAJOR STEPHEN TOWNSEND OF US ARMY, BASED IN AFGHANISTAN,WORKING FOR NATO. SAID HE WAS DIVORCED, DUE TO UNFAITHFUL WIFE, AND THAT HE HAD ADOPTED ORPHANED BOY AFTER A BOMB HAD KILLED HIS PARENTS. HE WAS USING THE GENERALS ARMY PHOTOS ON SKYPE,LOGGED ON AS STEP.TOWNSEND 112. I KNEW FROM START HE WASN\'T WHO HE SAID HE WAS SO I KEPT THE CHAT GOING FOR FEW DAYS. HE ASKED WHAT I DID TO SUSTAIN MY LIFESTYLE IN THIS ECONOMY, BIT STRANGE I THOUGHT,HIS ENGLISH WASN\'T VERY GOOD, ESPECIALLY FOR A USA GENERAL, AND WHEN I EVENTUALLY CONFRONTED HIM WITH WHAT I SUSPECTED, THAT HE WAS A FRAUD, HE SKYPE CALLED ME AND SUGGESTED THAT I WAS ON DRUGS OR SMOKING THEM AS HE WOULD NEVER PRETEND TO BE SOMEONE. HE HAS SINCE TRIED TO CALL ME AGAIN, WHICH I IGNORED, BUT HE HAS TAKEN GEN TOWNSENDS PICTURES OFF HIS PROFILE ON SKYPE, ALTHOUGH I BELIEVE HE ALSO HAS IT ON FACEBOOK. AS THE REAL GENERAL HAS HAD SUCH A DISTINGUISHED CAREER I REALLY DON\'T SEE HIM CONTACTING A COMPLETE STRANGER ON SKYPE LOOKING FOR A RELATIONSHIP, ESPECIALLY ONE WHO LIVES IN SCOTLAND. ME

contacted me on Tinder and asked to use Hangouts to communicate
He knows a lot about the Lt general
I googled US army Lt general Stephen Townsend and found out who the real man is. I ask the imposter different questions that I got from the articles on the Lieutenant. He answered most correctly but not all. He is running a scam and needs to stop discrediting the Lt. general.
