UPDATE: ROMAN aka David Mark SCOTT etc etc

 

Mark Anthony ROMAN aka Mark D'Roman aka Mark Western aka John Heil aka

Mark Reid aka Mark Lahey aka Montgomery Mark Moore, aka Montgomery Weir and now he is known as David Mark Scott.

Roman aka Reid etc etc now known as David Mark Scott holds a Western Australia (WA) Driving Licence under that name:

 

 Roman

We don't know how a person with so many names manages to get a WA Government Driving Licence. Perhaps David Mark Scott is his real name, but when he was Mark Reid he held a driving licence under that name. When he was known as Mark Anthony Roman he was driving a Porsche car so would have had a driving licence under that name.

Roman aka Scott etc etc is a recidivist con man without any talent for his chosen criminal activities as we have been able to keep a trace on him for six years.

There are Veterans throughout Australia monitoring this man for what he has done and will keep a watch on him.

How he came to be a citizen or resident of Australia we don't know, because he spent time in prison in the UK for serious crime and at the time of his departure from the UK was being investigated for another serious crime.

In a recent resume, he claims that between May 2017 and August 2017 to have returned to the UK, and worked in Bradford UK which meant travel to and from the UK. It is doubted that he was ever there, but if he was, he claims to have worked under the name of David Scott.   Who knows what name he would have travelled under?

 

In one of his many resumes under different names, he claims to have been in Australia since 2006.

Roman aka Scott etc etc has well been recognized by Australian Veterans and by those from whom he seeks jobs as a liar and fraud.

We believe it would be better for him and for Australia to leave our shores and peddle his piddling and contemptuous fraud somewhere else.

Marco D Roman aka Montgomery Mark Moore, Montgomery Weir of Dawesville, Mandurah, Western Australia is a liar, fraud and cheat who uses numerous other names including that of people he knows or have been in contact with him.

Roman-1

Marco Roman first appeared on the Walter Mitty website in the United Kingdom, see link below

http://waltermittyhunt.com/index.php/report-a-walt/viewgroup/114-marco-d-roman-sas-walter-mitty

Roman-2

We were made aware of Roman some time back when we were sent images from his Facebook page as he has been seen marching on ANZAC Day 2012 and 2013 in Perth, Western Australia on his own claiming to be a member of the British SAS. You will notice in the first photograph from his Facebook page it was taken at the Dawn Service at Kings Park in Perth 2012. He has most likely attended other ex-service commemorations as can be seen from his Facebook pages.

Due to other ongoing investigations by a certain department we have waited till now to expose him.

What we know of his military history is that he did join the British Army and went to the Parachute Regiment till he was kicked out as he did not meet the requirements to belong to such an Elite Regiment.

Roman-3

 

 

Roman-4

He was sent to the Green Jackets, but his time there was short lived after being charged with Manslaughter and spent time in an establishment at the Her Majesty’s pleasure. He left the United Kingdom to come to Australia before British Police could speak to him regarding a Grievous Bodily Harm and Fraud enquiries.

We know that he has committed a number of frauds in Western Australia, worked as a FIFO (fly in fly out) worker in the Northwest of Western Australia and claimed to be ex British, 16 Air Assault Brigade, Parachute Regiment as well as making a claim he was ex Australian SAS. Another claim he made was that he had his front teeth knocked out by the Irish republican Army (IRA) by being somewhere he wasn’t supposed to be.

Roman-5

Roman-6

 

You will also notice that he has marched claiming to be ex British SAS, but he is wearing the Australian SAS Beret and Badge. The two different ties he wears are Australian SAS Association ties as well as a blazer badge which he cannot seem to decide what side it should be worn. It is worn on the left of a jacket pocket as can be seen on any ANZAC Day from Associations that wear a blazer badge on their jackets.

These SAS items can be seen in any place around Australia being worn on ANZAC Day by real members of the SAS Association. Some items can be purchased on eBay from time to time or Military Disposal Stores.

In one photo he is wearing a lapel badge which was identified on eBay as being the 50th anniversary badge of the Australian SAS back in 2007.

Roman-7

The correct beret and badge for the British SAS can be seen below.

Roman-8

Marco Roman or whatever you want to call yourself, you would have to be one of the dumbest wannabe’s claiming to be ex SAS and to place those photos on Facebook proves it.

You may pose as a member of an Elite Army Unit, but you do not have the calibre to be one. For your lack of respect to these men of those units who carry out dangerous missions some of whom have not returned, you have earned your place on our website as well as in the United Kingdom for eternity.

Updated 24 Sep 2013

New information has come to our attention regarding this person.

His official documents (most likely fraudulent) have his name listed as Antonio Marco D'Roman as he has a history of forging documents which include qualifications and identity papers. Every time he changes his name, there is a story about using his birth parents' surname.

He is know by more than 20 pseudonyms some of which are:

Mark D'Roman

Mark Western

John Heil

Mark Reid

Mark Lahey

It is anyones guess as to what name he will use next and companies need to keep a watch out for this person who appears to have no morals.

Updated 07 Nov 2013

We have received a copy of a resume Marco D'Roman left on a computer, only a small portion of that is being put up to protect names of companies and indivduals he has named in the resume. The main part is about referring to his service in the British forces from 1999 to 2007 in which he states;

"Unable to disclose information on curriculm vitae due to service confidentiality".

If this was true, why did he parade on ANZAC Day trying to make out he served with the UK SAS. All members of the British Armed Forces can request a copy of their service record which would show units served in and what qualifications and rank they have obtained during their service. The only thing they would not be able to mention is any covert operations they took part that are classified as Secret.

So we have more lies told by him to cover up his poor less than desirable service record.

Case Notes:

 

Allan Wright of Manly is a fraud, liar and wannabe who for many years has fooled most of the people most of the time.

 

Wright

Wright

 

 

Here is an accolade to Wright that appeared in notes from a very prestigious club from the Manly area

 

Wright

 

He wears military medals indicating that he was a National Service Infantry Soldier who served in Vietnam. They are:

 

Australian Active Service Medal (AASM)

Vietnam Medal (VM)

Australian Defence Medal (ADM)

Anniversary of National Service Medal (ANSM)

Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal (RVCM)

 

On his lapels he wears six badges one of which is the prestigious Infantry Combat Badge (ICB). He also wears the cap of a USA Marine Corps unit that served in Da Nang Vietnam on the cap, another ICB is also attached. In addition he wears the unit tie of the Australian Army Training Team Vietnam (AATTV). AATTV was the longest serving and most decorated Australian unit in Vietnam. They received 113 Awards including 4 Victoria Crosses.

 

See here: https://www.awm.gov.au/collection/U53430

 

On his right breast he wears World War 1 medals indicating he is the direct relative of a person who served in that war.

 

The truth is that Wright has never served in the Australian Defence Force and is a complete sham, who has deceived friends and acquaintances for many years.

 

Wright is well known in the Manly NSW area as a "Returned Veteran" and has been venerated for his service, however we are sure that many will have an entirely different opinion of him after reading this exposure.

 

Wright has indulged in criminal acts by Falsely claiming to be a Returned Veteran and for wearing medals that he did not earn. The Defence Act 1903 details a $3,300 fine or six months imprisonment or both for these offences. Unfortunately the NSW Police will not pursue these matters whilst other States Police do.

 

We ask that ex servicemen and the general public in the Manly NSW area keep a watch for Wright and if he appears wearing any kind of military apparel or medals he can again be reported to this website.

 

Wright has basked in the kudos of his false military history for many years and for his deceitful antics can reside on this website for many years to come.

Branch: Infantry
Commencement of service: 1957
Case Notes:

 

Peter Astridge is the Secretary/Vice President of the Gladesville Returned and Services League (RSL) Sub Branch.

 

Astridge

 

Notice that Astridge wears relatives medals on his right breast, a red sash over his left shoulder, a Commando Beret and Badge, and two medals on his left breast. Sometimes he wears the red sash on his right shoulder.

 

Astridge

Astridge3

 

Astridge spent some time as a part time soldier in the Citizens Military Forces and served with Commandos, for which he may have been awarded an Australian Defence Medal (ADM) and the Commando Beret and Badge. The second medal on his left breast is a New South Wales unofficial State Emergency Services Medal and should not be worn at all. The "Tin" medal and the red sash are just "bling", perhaps to enhance the perception of his military service.

 

Traditionally, a red sash is worn in the Australian Army by serving Royal Australian Infantry Corps Sergeants and Warrant Officers on ceremonial parades. It was a tradition adopted from the British Army where the sash and its colour derived from it being used to drag wounded soldiers out of the battle line and to the rear, when fighting was at close quarters..

 

An RSL executive has no duties that may require the application of the red sash.

 

We suggest to Astridge that he gets rid of the sash, and the medal.

 

RSLs' are places where Veterans and the members remember the sacrifices of those who have served in the Australian Defence Force. It is not a place where people like Astridge can don fancy dress to massage their ego and their public persona.

 

Welcome to the website Peter Astridge.

 

Surname: Shortis

City or Town: Melbourne
Service #: Nil
Service: Nil
Case Notes:

 

Christopher Shortis is an extremist politician with a bent for “Hitler” like rants at public rallies. It appears that Shortis likes to identify himself as "warrior". In a political party he was known as "Lieutenant" and wears medals on his right breast.

 

Shortis1

 

At rallies there is quite a bit of clanging as the rack of medals on his right breast jostle about.

 

Shortis

 

It is assumed that the medals are those of a direct deceased relative.   Protocol for wearing medals as a descendant of the original recipient is as follows:

 

"Allowance is made for family members of a deceased recipient to wear that person's medals on commemorative occasions such as Anzac Day. When worn by others, the usual protocol recommended is that the medals are worn on the right side to show that the wearer is not the original recipient".

Note that protocol directs that relative’s medals may be worn on commemorative occasions. Extremist political rallies are not such occasions and Shortis is grossly insulting traditions and protocols.

Shortis spruiks lots of fighting words in his tirades, but he has never served in the Defence Force. Here is an example of his aggressive rhetoric:

Shortis

Perhaps Shortis wears the medals to give evidence, to the unwary public that he not only talks about his sweat blood and tears, but is the relative of a sweater, bleeder and weeper.

Fortunately for the Australian public this firebrand has been deprived of his weapons of close destruction, which thankfully leaves him with only mean rhetoric in his armoury.

Shortis4

This entry is a bit out of the ordinary, however we believe that Shortis has well earned a position on this web site for his abuse of protocol and tradition in the wearing of Australian military medals

Case Notes:

 

Mr "Maj" Tui Tereva also known as Malcolm Wiki is from the Cook Islands in the Pacific and now resides in Queensland Australia.  He is a "Love Rat" fraud who takes advantage of vulnerable ladies by claiming to be a very busy SASR operative who is constantly deployed on "missions".

 

Tereva

 

Perhaps he learned his trade from these two disgraceful human beings who already grace this web site for similar behaviour.

Gwilliam   -  http://mail.anzmi.net/index.php/cheats-thieves/valour-thieves/149-gwilliam

 

Tereva claims to be of the rank of "Major" in Army Engineers involved “In Special Activities”. 

 

Tereva2

 

He claims to be trained in hand to hand combat and will demonstrate by revealing  his concealed knife which is part of his belt buckle.  He "proves" his bona fides by giving his victims SASR “Coins” like this one below:

 

Tereva3

 

 

He also claims to have been trained by the SAS in the United Kingdom and the French Foreign Legion.  Like all liars and wannabes of this genre he claims to be “riddled” with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and suffers severe night terrors and states he "should not be approached when in the grips of an attack".

 

From January 2018 until July 2018 Tereva maintained a  charade of being deployed in Afghanistan. In fact, he was never in the Australian Army, never served with SASR and was never deployed to any war zone.  Since July he has disappeared, and we are sure he will reappear to further attempt his poorly researched deception.

UPDATE -  Andrew BASS aka Major Sir Andrew BASS

Ex patriot Australian fraudster, Andrew Bass, is still deep in the heart of Texas and still cringe worthy.  Since he was originally exposed by ANZMI in 2014, Bass continues to tell people of his service as a Major in the Australian elite  Special Air Services Regiment (SASR).  Here is a recent photograph:

 

Bass1update

 

In this photograph Bass is wearing an SASR Badge on an Australian Slouch Hat.  He knows nothing about Slouch hats because he has the chin strap buckle in the wrong place.  He also wears "Dog Tags" in a cavalier fashion around his neck  and we are reliably told he wears the rank of an Australian Major, on his epaulettes slides.

He says he "is an Iraq and Afghanistan Veteran, was decorated  for valour and has made 1000 parachute jumps".

Bass has taken no heed of our original exposure and continues his despicable lies.  He seems to have a delusional addiction to be a war hero.  Unfortunately that honour is hard won and people of his intelligence and stature would never make the grade.

As long as Bass continues to offend Veteran Communities of the USA, Australia and New Zealand we will continue to report his activities

*** 

CASE NOTES 

Major Sir Andrew Bass is an ex patriot Australian who resides in the Lone Star State of Texas, in the United States of America.

His use of the rank Major, is as fictitious as his Knighthood, although he publicly advertises both on social media. He is often seen at functions wearing Australian Military uniforms. Here is an example:


Notice how "Daggy" he looks in the uniform. It is hardly the way an ex Australian Major would want to present an Australian uniform.

Here is where Bass makes his claims in writing:

The above can be found on this web site:

army.togetherweserved.com/army/servlet/t...ype=Person&ID=113243.

TXARNG is an acronym for Texas Army National Guard, where it appears Bass served as a Private Soldier during 2003 and 2005. He clearly states that he was a Major in the Australian Army.

A thorough search of Australian National Archives failed to find any information about a person named Andrew Bass as ever serving in the Australian Defence Force.

Bass also insults the people of Texas by using the Title "Sir Andrew" inferring that he has been dubbed as a Knight of the Realm of the British Empire. This act makes Australians cringe at his audacity. When we asked Bass about his Knighthood he answered as follows;

"From: Andrew Bass
ANZMI

I hold the title of Sir Andrew because I hold the rank of Knight's Bachelor with the order of Saint John the Hospitaller, Knight of Malta (USA Division). I was invited to join the Order in 2004."


The Knights of Saint John the Hospitaller, Knight of Malta (USA Division) have no authority to dub any person with a Knighthood except perhaps in the confines of their "Club" when they are playing dress ups. Publicly using the title of "Sir" as a result of such a "Knighthood" is the epitome of audacious and dishonest representation.

Despite requesting information from him about his Australian Army Service as a commissioned officer on three occasions, Bass failed to respond. The reason for this is that he was never a Major in the Australian Army, and we doubt that he has had any service at all in Australia,

We direct Bass to stop insulting Australian and New Zealand Veterans by pretending to be something he is not. We are pleased to note that people from Texas were easily able to detect and report his deceit.

We are pleased to advise that Major Sir Andrew Bass has left the building, and now we welcome plain old Private Mr Andrew Bass, formerly of the TXARNG to our web site
