Signs of a Recruiting or Money Scam

Scammers advertise jobs that look like the real thing through job boards and other advertisements. Look for these important signs that a posting may be a scam.

  • Check the email address origin. DynCorp International recruiters, team members and personnel have an email address ending in Any point of contact that does not have that email address origin is not a part of the DI recruiting team. Scammers will try to make very similar email address domains, so make sure to check that it is only from a address. If you see an email address or website ending in .net, .in, .org or one that looks like these real life examples:
    • These listed above are all fake! Remember, all official DI email addresses will end in
  • Requests for placement fees to speed up the hiring process. If you are contacted by anyone offering a job with DynCorp International, you will never be asked to pay a fee for recruiting.
  • A communication requests money in exchange for guaranteed employment. Any communication requesting any amount of money in exchange for employment with DI is a scam. DI and its family of companies never charges candidates fees or payments of any kind in order to secure employment.
  • A communication requests payment as a fee for certification, training materials or other work-related expenses. DI does not require payment for any materials as part of its recruiting process.
  • Requests for tax, bank account or credit card information. DI recruiters do not require the completion of tax forms such as a W-4, bank account or credit card information as part of the recruiting process. As a precaution, we recommend you do not give out personal or financial details to anyone as a response to an unsolicited email request.
  • Offers work at home opportunities. DI does not currently offer any work at home opportunities.
  • Poor English, grammar, and spelling. Official DI recruiters will send all communications from an official DI email address, use proper American English, and will never ask you for money.

Dating site scams are also on the rise

Scammers steal identities on social networking sites like Facebook and Instagram and pose as someone else, sometimes even DI employees. After posting pictures and stories to popular dating sites, the scammers reach out to people with accounts on that site and try to exploit them.

You’ve Been Scammed – What To Do Next

If you are contacted regarding a fraudulent employment proposal, please alert a local law enforcement agency or police authority.

The Federal Trade Commission also has a reporting service on their website for those who have been targeted by a recruiting scam.

    I have been given this email address and bank account details one in USA and one in UK in order for me to send money to allow one of your DI's working undercover to come on leave and release his bonus money into my account. I believe this to be a scam…please confirm. Thank you

      • One of your “employees” has been corresponding with me and trying to scam money. I’m happy to forward you any information which I have if you’d like. Today I was sent the email address of I also have a personal email of which correspondence has been coming through on. On the first email I was to send a note asking dyn Corp to allow leave and then a I would be contacted by dyn Corp to let me know how much the admin fees would be to process the leave.

        • This guy contacted me on Tinder and started corresponding. He hasn’t asked for money but he said he works for Dyncorp and is in Tripoli. He sent me his phone number and email address 318-987-8921 and I even told him he had been reported as a scammer. Then he contacted me again from a different profile but used the same opening line and said “what to chat” so I said, “sure – send me your number” and he sent the same number. I won’t repeat what I said in response. You should deal with this guy directly.

  3. A friend of mine sent to me information about a job with dyncorp in panama. The body of the text that was answered after I wrote an e-mail was this:

    I sent some information later, but I haven´t been required to present myself to any physical address. All the communications we have had were held through this address :
    I want to know if this is an official representative of your organization here in Colombia and Panama?

  4. Hi, I’ve been conversing with an employee of dyncorp international. He asked for money to sell his shares. I gave money. He now asked me to request leave for him and says I need to pay administration and processing fees?? Is this person a scammer??

  5. Por favor nos pueden compartir el contacto en Colombia y en panamá esto con el fin de evitar ser victimas de estafadores? y tener certeza de la confiabilidad de su procesos

  6. Cordial saludo, para dar claridad al tema de la convocatoria para Panamá nos pueden confirmar si realmente ustedes o sus aliados tienen vacantes en ese sitio?

  7. Please I can share the contact in Colombia and Panama, this in order to avoid becoming victims of scammers and be certain of the reliability of your processes

  8. Esto es una estafa, a la Embajada de Panamá nos han llegado varias personas que les han pedido dinero para un supuesto curso de ingles y después se les desaparecieron.

  9. Afraid I’m another person who got scammed someone asking me to send money for their release from dyncorportal their name was Glen Arthur and met on a dating site Dealt with a man calling himself Sgt Adolf Alkins working for Dyncorp Was even given a contract no of Glen. and very believable information

  10. They have fellows on zoosk trying to find a mate and using your commonly to try to get monies for communication over seas. What a damn scam and so did hearting. Beware of these people on dating sites. It is getting to be like a virus.. I’m pisses me off. Thanks for taking the time to read

  11. Please be cautioned!

    Serg. Kaine Johnston stated he is an employee of Dyncorp, Mark Dowson his accomplice, ( – requested money $438 for a leave from Uganda. Fake? ID tag 0147471.
    DOB 8/21/71 or 12/8/71 KIK username kainejohnson147

  12. I have also had Kaine Johnston in contact with me , being over the too nice messaging , after a week of messages he started saying he didn’t have money to buy food , I let him go as far as me telling him I’d send money but I knew I had a feeling this was a scam , I googled his name along side with Dyncorp international and this information came up straight away , I’d like to know how to report this to the right people , these people need stopping , I was lucky enough to know this guy was a fack but I’m sure plenty of women fall for his charm , his tinder name is Kaine Johnston 147 and he uses kik messaging so he is untraceable

  13. I have been corresponding with a man who claims that he works for DynCorp International and is currently in Syria. His name is Bill Bradford, and since about November last year we have been going through the process of bringing him home this in its self has been very traumatic mainly because of the vast amounts of money which I have been requested to pay ( which I believe to be very suspicious) he stated that he does not have access to his bank accounts ( again this seems unbelievable as from investigations it appears that even military personnel can access their bank accounts).
    I am extremely worried that I may have become a victim of a scam, after some investigation on line I have come across some names of people who I have had dealings with and who apparently are connected to DynCorp and who have been involved in scams.
    So what I would like to know is are the following legit employees of DynCorp:
    Bill Bradford aero engineer currently in Syria.

    Richard Henderson, email:

    George Dennison, WorldWide Security Courier Company, email:

    The George Dennnison appears a few times in relation to money scams.
    When I started the process to bring Bill home I was not aware that I would have to pay, but have spent over £21,000 I am now broke and it is highly likely I could be homeless.

    The final straw came when George Dennison asked for money for a Anti Terrorist Certificate on investigation this is not required and is to be taken as a hoax.

    Now I do not trust Bill and even if it turns out that he is legit I will still be very wary.

    As it is highly unlikely that he will be coming home I would appreciate a refund of the money I have sent to DynCorp via Richard Henderson.

    I have given personal details to both Richard Henderson ( bank details at his request so that the supposed funds can be paid in ) and George Dennison ( passport, address and contact number, presumably to check who I am), I am seriously considering contacting the Fraud Squad because there are too many coincidences linking DynCorp, Richard Henderson and George Dennison

    I look forward to your reply

    • Lynda,
      Sorry to hear that you have been scammed by these people. I want to reassure you, the scammers are in NO WAY associated with DynCorp International. We work very hard to trying to shut down scammers using our name, though they’re still going to be out there. You will need to be very careful who you trust online. Please know that DynCorp International does not ever request money for employees to go on leave.

      Again, I want to be very clear. You have been dealing with scammers that are not part of DynCorp International even though they have been representing themselves as that online.

      • Thank you, wish I had seen his page months ago would have saved myself some money and respect

      • I have been talking to a man named Luckey Shay Williams who began asking for money to use on prepaid phone card so he could talk to me on the phone given to him by dyncorp. He told me to wire it to a woman in Gahanna, Ohio that was an agent. I have her information. Well now he’s asked me to send a Request for Leave email so that he can come home & be with me for 3 months. Kind of curious, I followed his instructions and sent the email to I then received an email back from Dalton Hardy who claimed to be a Processing Officers. He sent me a letter that told me some steps that I needed to complete, along with sending a $500 fee for his 3 months of leave. Dalton Hardy used the same email address I had emailed the request to. I have all of Luckey Shay Williams contact info and the info of the lady I was supposed to be sending money to. I also have other info that he told me about regarding other financial stuff. I wish I had come across this website earlier but now is better than never. If you would like to contact me about this and get the info I have, you can reach me with the email I provided. I would really like to help if I can. I wish you would come back & say he’s real but I’m sure so does everyone else that has sritten in. Thank You.

        • Hi Norma, sorry to hear you were pulled into this scam, but these people are not associated with DynCorp International and that is not a corporate email address. We will reach out to you for more information that might help us shut down the scammer email address. Thank you.

  14. I am trying to find out if you have an employee on your books working in Syria as an aerospace engineer by the name of Jake Walker. I need verification that this man is who he says he is.

    • Miriam,
      I cannot verify names of employees as it is impossible to know who someone really is on the internet, but you are dealing with a scammer. Please know that employees do not need to pay to go on leave – do not send money to these people as you will not get it back. This is a common request and is completely fake. We don’t even have anyone working in Syria.

  15. Dear Dyncorp,
    I am one who tries to give anyone the benefit of the doubt, and thats what I did with this person, even after I had talked to you and you couldnt verify him working for you and gave me the scam info. I did lose the first of the scam leave money, but have continued to talk with him for 5 months. He has been pushing for the plus leave money, so I decided to go on this site. Thank you for being here with it. I have ended my relationship with him, but want to give you the information I have in case there is anyway you can do anything about these scammers.
    He used the name Gareth Paul Cole DOB October 15, 1963. 2 sons Steve and Smith (?).Lives in Texas , been with Dyncorp for 20 years. Presently in Jordan. Trains and retrains paratroopers. Works under a boss named Aaron. Has money sent via moneygrams to a Belinda in the US, used Syria as a place he was going to be transferred to. Used Dyncorp/rescueteam to send leave note to. I hope this information will help someone else avoid getting hurt financially and emotionally in a scam

  16. I have been in contact with a guy called Richard Bryan via He says he works for your company as an aero engineer and is currently in Syria and as been for over 3 months. Please can you confirm if he works for your company. I believe this maybe a scam and that I have been duped into sending money.

  17. Dear dyncorp
    I’m in contact with someone who’s in a camp in Syria since February we talk together and i send already a lot of money for a leave to his commander via moneygram.i’m sure now it’s a scammer I blocked him on Facebook

  18. Met a guy on a dating app. Says he is private contract for your company in Syria now. His name is Michael Andras Hunt. He has 3 different Facebook profiles that I have found so far. He has not asked for money, but I am worried that he is not who he says he is. Can you confirm?

  19. I have been communicating with a man that says he works for your company. He is a sniper that was in Israel and was transferred to Syria in April. He says his name is Officer David Stanley. In trying to grant him leave and cancel his contract I have had to send $6000+ in fees to process the paperwork, get a release from the Syrian Army, and something to do with his retirement funds. I have also been working with a Michael Sanford (email address and a Larkin Jameson. I have a gut feeling that I have been scammed and taken for a fool with all of this. Please confirm or deny. If it is all a scam, then damn these guys are good!

  20. Donald Field from Dyn Corp contacted me through a dating site. (OK Cupid) His user was cupid_s. I have a few pictures of the ex-military guy he says he is and now works for Dyn Corp in Turkey.

He’s on Kik messenger Donald_Field, also has an e-mail address He made me send money twice through Western Union to Evelyn Webb in VA. This person showed her ID and picked up the money in two occasions. The last time 3 days ago.

  21. I have been chatting with a man that says he works for your company and has been in Syria for the past 18 months. Can you confirm if you have employees working in Syria?

  22. I have been chatting to a man named sgt. Christopher Rodriguez working for Dyncorp Intl in Syria. I have been asked to send £350 for transit fees to UK. I also believe I am being scammed.

  25. Donald Field has an email and supposedly had worked for this company 6 years and finished his contract in Turkey late last month. Now I’ve been told that he is in a hospital and someone else who goes by Peter Fred (email address is contacting me. I’m afraid Peter will ask for money from me to pay hospital bills. It just seems that at the last moment Donald is supposed to come back to America, something happens to delay it. Now I read the comment by Gricel, I realized that I’ve been had after all and this breaks my heart. I just want to know the truth so I can move on with my life.

  26. Hi there, Do you have an employee by the name of Jeffrey Graham that has been deployed to west Africa for approx 3 months. He contacted me via I messenger and has sent me different photos of himself and keeps calling me sweetie, babe etc. it seemed legit at the start but now I am wondering. They don’t all look like the same person. Could this be a scam? Please reply Thankyou

  27. So called Donald Field aka Artur is still scamming. He sent me a huge email that was filled with horrible grammar (for a guy who graduated from Columbia University) and revealed too much. I knew in my gut instantly this wasn’t right. I googled “dating scams Donald field artur” and your site came up. I never typed in the company which he says he works for DYN Corp. His story is the same – coming home in 6 ‘months, in Syria, only child. Photos were included. What a sham.

  28. sir/madam
    I saw an advertisement last week as Dyncorp is hiring people form India for Afghanistan for various jobs. The Recruiting agency named as MM HR SOLUTIONS HUB PVT LTD. New Delhi. Is Dyncorp International give the authority to the agency to hire people from India? Kindly reply me please before the people cheated by them.

  29. I have been communicating with a man that I met on tinder, he says he is working for DynCorp as an officer goes by the name Jimmy Young {Young Jimmy Williams} is another name he gave me, he said that he has been patrolling in Turkey? do you have any one working for you with that name? he said that he comes from Texas. He has been asking me for money.

  30. Is there a place I can post screen shots and photos of a scammer posing as one of your employees? He (George Dave) is claiming his credit card stopped working while in Africa and that DI is not helping him correct his problem. Now he is asking for my credit card info. His photos are real, and I just want to alert other women of him as he found me on a dating site.

      • After being in contact with a guy who says he is working for your company, is now in Turkey and first wanted money for the early leave and now his prepaidcard is empty and his bankaccount is blocked… I heard about scammer long time ago, not gonna buy it. But can imagine people will. I am still in contact and playing his ‘game’. But what wonders me after reading all this comments. what is Dyncorp doing to stop this scammers?? It will affect your company, but most of all the victims of this scam. I can tell you that the e-mailaddress of the Dalton Hardy still exist.

        • Hi Geraldine,
          We do try to work with those of you who can provide more info to help us request the email addresses be shut down. It takes more than just knowing their email address though. If you would like to help, please submit another comment with your actual email address in the email field (it won’t be made public) and I will contact you.

  31. If this person works for you Donald Field- email, I want to let you know that I have exposed him to as many scammer websites I could find so he is no longer incognito if he was supposed to be.

  32. i have been in contact with someone in Ireland.From a dating site actually.She send a luggage wich according to her contain her clothings,documents and cash of £200,000 and some gifts for me.A courier guy by the name of Daniel Cooper,called and told me that the luggage is now in Kuala Lumpur,Malaysia.But according to him since the luggage is under the Diplomatic Immunity,the customs aren’t allowed to open until the 48 hours time frame has expired.And advised me to pay 3,500 Malaysian Ringgit in order for the customs to make clearance and issue me a clearance certificate.But the airway bill is written as DYNACORP INTERNATIONAL SECURITY & DIPLOMATIC COMPANY.When i type in google it came out as DYNCORP…so is it the same company??

    • We do not go by the name “DYNACORP” even though that is a common misspelling. This definitely sounds like a scammer. They’ll make things sound very official in order to con people, but don’t fall for it. Don’t send your money to them.

  33. Hi, I did a tracking on both o.a. emails… and both coming from the same devise / and he is in Nigeria..
    He is definitely a Scammer ….

  34. Please help. I have a friend conversing with a man on Kikk, met on Tinder named Brady Kennedy who says he is working for Dyncorp in Turkey for the next 6 months. Then coming home to Texas. Sent pics and video. Says he got in trouble for sending video and may be ford. He has not asked for money. Fake? Scammer?

      • Hey Niki … This is really sad … I have just started conversing with a guy from Tinder on April 2nd and now on KIK and his name is Brady Kennedy and he says he works for Dyncorp and an officer with the company and will be in Turkey for the next 6 months and then come home to Avon Park. He is very sweet and loving and endearing with his words and so convincing… ugh well I am glad I know .. just awful how people do this

  35. On tinder met guy going by the name Alex Barlow, say he was half British half Spanish had only been talking 3 day and he asked for help and money to leave.

  36. Met a guy on okcupid who says he’s working with your company in Turkey, Steven Field. Do you think this is a scammer?

  37. I started dating one of your employees from an online dating site. He has asked me for money for his personal needs. He claims that he does not have access to any of his accounts. I have asked for an email address or mailing address, and he claims they don’t have one where he is located. I have not sent any money to this person and I have refused to do so. I need to know if he actually works for Dyncorp International, but I don’t want to cause him any problems.
