    I started talking to this guy today.
    As said above, found it really strange that he said he was american yet his English was really off.
    Also he wrote colour, instead of color.
    The picture above was sent to me, so I searched Carney and US Army, and came here.
    He is calling himself Alex Carney.
    He hasn't asked for money, but I'm sure it would eventually lead to that if we keep talking.
    So take this as a warning - don't be taken in!

    I met the same guy. Went by carney david. Got shipped to Africa supposedly. Wanted me to open an ira account so he can get his vacation leave sent there. He wanted to cone back to the states and marry me after only a week of talking. He was messaging me on Google hangouts. Said he had a daughter that lived in Germany with his mother. Said he lives in Texas when not on leave.

    Well now this ### is on Facebook. He is going by Mike carney. But seeing I am really bored I think I'm a pretty good scammer. He quotes different poetry. And I well find poetry of my own to copy and paste. Maybe I should turn the tables and ask him to send me money to go visit? I have not sent him any money and I think he has gotten the point!
    It's just sad that our USA forces are over there and these pieces of crap do this to their reputation.

    I was warned by my cousin after she looked him up. I have been conversing with him for two months and fell head over heels for him. He was too good to be true but I had my doubts. I went online doing a google image search of this photo and sure enough Sgt. Charles Carney is not who he says he is. Too bad too cause he is hot.. He was actually move here and marry me and everything. What a jerk. I found out that he also has been talking to other women this whole time too.

    OMG. I have been corresponding with that guy by the name of Brennen Carney. He claims he is from Dallas Texas, and that he is currently nerving in Afghanistan in the United States. He also claims he has a daughter back home. This person contacted me thru a site called Badoo.com. Thought it was rather odd, because comung from Dallas, TX, his english was rather off. We exchanged email adresses his is [email protected] He sent me 3 pictures which are 2 different people. I think this scammer needs to be caught. I had a feeling something was up and i am not sure what he would have tried, but all women i urge you to not be scammed by this guy.

    As stated above, do some research first. It's obviously a scam. Why would the US military allow strangers to request leave for one of their soldiers, let alone require them to pay for it? Were that the case, America's enemies could easily beat any US military force by spending their money on leave requests so there would be no American soldiers left deployed to oppose them.

    Common sense people, common sense.

    Before you go trying to track this soldier's credentials down, might I suggest that you do an internet search. This is an email scam along the lines of the Nigerian scam. Here is what my google search returned: http://bit.ly/LMhzxg

    As you can see, there are plenty of sites out there warning about this scam. So you can either report the email to the proper authorities (In the US we report them to the FTC. Not sure what you do in the UK) or you can delete the email. Whatever you do, DON'T continue communication with this person who is impersonating a soldier.
