Service: Army
Branch: Infantry
Commencement of service: December 2006
Completion of service: July 2018
Case Notes:

 

Eric Craft was born in December 1988 and at 18 years of age in 2006, joined the Australian Regular Army (ARA) where he served until 2017.  He then transferred to the Army Reserve and was discharged in July 2018. During all of his Army service he remained a Private Soldier.

 

Craft

 

Craft has not settled back into civilian life, and blames his bad behaviour on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) that he developed during his many "overseas combat deployments".

 

In fact Craft was never deployed to any war zones during his twelve years of service, his entire service was spent in Australia.

 

We hold six Statutory Declarations detailing what Craft has said about his time in the Army.

 

According to Craft he served in Malaysia, Afghanistan (4 tours) Iraq, Solomon Islands, Europe, Somalia and East Timor among other medals he also claims the USA Purple Heart for being wounded in action. During his last tour of duty in Afghanistan he says he was captured, tortured an raped.  He was also involved in "Black Ops" and his service records have been "wiped and sealed under the Secrecy Act".

 

Whilst in Afghanistan he was selected to work with US Army Rangers, elite Special Forces and Delta Force . It can be assumed this lie is to cover his previous lie of being awarded a USA Purple Heart Medal.

 

According to Craft he attended and passed the Special Air Service Regiment (SASR) selection course with ease and because of his combat experience was urged to join SASR, however he choose to return to his Battalion in Adelaide.           

 

He plays the false PTSD card to the hilt and has phoned people during the night crying and seeking counselling for the pain of his combat experiences.

 

We are reliably advised that his whole family believe he is a damaged Returned Soldier.   Lying to loved ones about false service to get succour is the ultimate betrayal. It is also the epitome of treachery against genuine veterans.

Craft is given Star status on this web site where he will remain forever.

Case Notes:

 

Anthony (Tony) Fraser served in the first Gulf War aboard HMAS Brisbane during 1990 and 1991.

Australian Active Service Medal (AASM)

Australian Service Medal (ASM)

Australian Defence Medal (ADM)

Saudi Arabia Liberation of Kuwait Medal (LKM)

Fraser

There are no medals issued by the Country of Kuwait that are approved to be worn on the left breast by Australian Defence Veterans

Fraser has a medal that he should not wear. Honest Medal Dealers know the rules and will not mount "dodgy" medals, however like all trades, there are renegades who will do anything for an extra dollar.

There is space for Fraser on this website and if we knew the name of the person who mounted the Medals we would also include him/her.

Surname: Boak
Christian Names: Nicholas George

State or Province: Queensland
City or Town: Airlie Beach
Service: Army (Reserve)
Branch: Royal Australian Infantry Corps
Commencement of service: 31 December 2003
Completion of service: 23 August 2017
Case Notes:

 

Nicholas George Boak is a man in the prime of life, he describes himself as an Accountant, Adventurer and serving Major in the Australian Army Reserve.

 

Boak

 

We hold a written declaration from Boak stating that he:

 

Was awarded a Victoria Cross (VC)

Is a serving Major in the Army Reserve.

Served with Special Air Service Regiment (SAS) .

Served in Army, Navy, Air Force and "other" (whatever that may be)

 

Served in these areas of Military Operations:

 

  1. Gulf War
  2. Solomon Islands
  3. Afghanistan
  4. East Timor
  5. Peacekeeping
  6. Korea
  7. Malayan Emergency
  8. Iraq

 

Boak2 2018 12 16

Boak3

 

In reality he was a Lieutenant in the Army Reserve who was terminated in August 2017. During his service he was deployed to Solomon Islands for Operation "Anode" and was awarded an Australian Service Medal. He was also awarded an Australian Defence Medal as shown in photograph below.

 

Boak4 2018 12 16

 

He has a Linkedin Account and has stolen a media release showing "him" shaking hands with the Honourable Peter Dutton MP. Boak looks similar to the person in the photograph and has stolen his identity to indicate he has a chest full of medals.   He has changed the name in the heading and placed it on his Linkedin account.

 

Boak has a high profile in the Airlie Beach area. High profiles with media involvement and lying about military service are not recommended because communities all over Australia now include current and former Australian Defence Force personnel, who can recognize a cheat in the blink of an eye.

 

We are pleased to add Nicholas George Boak now of Airlie Beach to our website.

Surname: Johns
Christian Names: Daryle Wayne
Country: Australia
State or Province: South Australia
City or Town: Port Pirie
Service #: 4720572
Service: Army
Branch: Australian Army Catering Corps
Case Notes:

 

Johns served as a Catering Corps Corporal who was assigned to Royal Australian Armoured Corps (RAAC) units in Vietnam from 28 November 1969 until 19 November 1970.

 

Johns

 

Notice that Johns wears the regalia of the RAAC veteran, including Armoured Corps beret and hat badge. In addition he wears an Army Combat Badge attached to his Australian Active Service Medal.

 

Johns chooses to shun his Catering Corps heritage and wear the more prestigious trappings of an Armoured Corps veteran.

 

Non Armoured Corps soldiers posted to Armoured Corps combat units in Vietnam would have had some routine guard and patrol duties at the Nui Dat base, but were never deployed on combat operations.

 

In a newspaper article, Johns says the following:

 

Johns2

 

The term "Tet" refers to the celebration of the 1968 Vietnamese New Year which became the bloodiest time of the war.

 

Johns did not participate in the "Tet Offensive". The "Tet Offensive" was officially named The General Offensive and Uprising of Tet Mau Than 1968, and was one of the largest military campaigns of the Vietnam War. It commenced on 30 Jan 1968 and continued until February, that year. It was indeed a torrid time. In 1969 on the anniversary of the 1968 "Tet Offensive" there was increased activity from the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong, that period in 1969 has been accepted as a second Tet Offensive. There were no more Tet Offensives. Johns was in Nui Dat for a resurgence of activity in January 1970 and has claimed that time as being a Tet Offensive.

 

Army Combat Badge (ACB)

 

The Royal Australian Armoured Corps (RAAC) Association advises that all non Corps personnel posted to Armoured Corps combat units in Vietnam were awarded the ACB.

 

"The purpose of the ACB is not to recognise combat duties but to recognise service with a combat element through formal force assignment and been physically deployed in the same geographical location as a Combat Team and have a primary role to directly support that Combat Team for a period of either a continuous or an aggregate of 90 days satisfactory service".

It must not be worn attached to an Australian Active Service Medal (AASM). Protocol directs that it is worn on the left breast above medals.

Johns3 2018 12 18

 

Johns earned the medals that he wears.

He earned the right to wear an ACB, but not attached to his AASM.

 

He did not earn the right to wear the RAAC beret and badge.

 

He did not earn the right to have claimed to have served in Vietnam during the "Tet Offensive".

 

For his actions Daryle Johns has earned the right to be featured on this website.

 UPDATE June 2018.

Peter Kevin JENKINS aka DOBSON aka Nathan CANE aka CAINE

Scruples are part of the fabric that hold our society together. Peter Kevin JENKINS has none, and the best place for him is his current residence at Casuarina Prison, Perth Western Australia. In his latest escapade this forty year old man has blamed his mother for his disgraceful criminal acts. Here is a newspaper report:


Jenkins1a

Jenkins2a

Jenkins3a




We have been reporting this abominable man since 2014. During this time he has been in and out of prison, and has devoted his life to criminal self indulgence at the expense of vulnerable people. He does his dirty work on Internet Dating Websites.

He still .uses the ploy of heroic military service to win the confidence of susceptible, trusting ladies on dating sites. He has also claimed to be an Emergency Response Medical Doctor, an Australian Football League Team Doctor, and an Accountant.

Jenkins exhibits the traits of a pathological liar. He does not lie for self satisfaction alone, he lies to support his criminal activities. He is obviously a person of little intelligence as he is always caught out for his recidivist criminality. We believe that no amount of prison time will redeem this piece of canine excrement.

We are confident that after his current sojourn in Casuarina Prison, he will again succumb to the twisted traits of his personality, to be an ineffectual criminal, who has no qualms about destroying other peoples lives for his own selfish pursuits.

 

 ***

CASE NOTES

We have on our web site numerous examples of men who make a career of "sponging" off vulnerable women. These pathetic examples of humanity always exhibit the symptoms of being pathological liars. Peter Kevin Jenkins of Maroochydore is such an excuse for a man.

National Australia Archives were unable to locate a Defence Service File for Peter Kevin Jenkins. We hold Statutory Declarations detailing Jenkins version of his military history.

Here is what Jenkins has to say:

He joined the Australian Army aged 18 years

Served in the Special Air Service (SAS)

Was shot four times and will show his scars to prove it

Served in Afghanistan, Timor and Papua New Guinea

Held suspected terrorists in a container terminal tortured them for 12 days then shot them in the back of the head.

Gets a War Pension of $2,800 a fortnight

He refuses to attend ANZAC day commemorations because although he served 18 years the Australian Defence Force did not care about him.

Around ANZAC Day in 2014 he was very depressed because of the things he had to do for his country.

Claims to possess "7 hand guns"

He has four war medals which he will readily exhibit and is booked to receive another at a medals presentation ceremony in Canberra in August 2014.


There are numerous examples of scurrilous dishonest wimps on this web site who seek free board and lodgings whilst claiming to be serving or ex serving Special Forces Servicemen, These mongrels falsely blame their tantrums and bad behaviour on the Psychological injuries received whilst involved in heroic Defence service, which is always of a secret nature, such as described by Jenkins when he "murdered prisoners of war".

We know that Jenkins has previously resided in the Mackay area of Queensland, and South Australia. We would appreciate information from others he has conned before moving to Maroochydore.

Peter Kevin Jenkins is the epitome of the exact opposite of how a genuine SAS Regiment soldier would act. He is without scruples, honour or human decency. From now on, whenever his name is typed into a search engine this truth about him will emerge.

We welcome Jenkins to our web site with the knowledge that this is the retribution wrought upon liars frauds and wannabes who infest the Australian and New Zealand Veteran Communities.

 

UPDATE Peter Kevin Jenkins aka Peter Kevin Cane

Since publishing our exposure of Jenkins we have received further information, including advice from a person who served with him during his military career. We now know that he did have a military career, although it was less than auspicious, very short, and served under his real name, which is Peter Kevin Cane born 9 March 1978.

5800672 Peter Kevin Cane aka Jenkins, enlisted into the Australian Regular Army on 4 September 1995 and was discharged 21 October 1995. The reason for his discharge was that he was "Not suited to be a soldier" Obviously the Enlistment Officer made an error when he approved Jenkins aka Cane's application to enlist.

There is no real shame in being discharged for the reason of being unsuitable, as not everybody is suited for the rigours of Army service. There is however monumental shame when a person falsely claims to have served heroically with the Special Air Service Regiment (SASR), when they failed Recruit Training, which is, in part, designed to cull out those who are not suited for military life.

Since our exposure of Jenkins he has written some murderous and lying emails. He fails to understand that he is the author of his current situation because of his lies and deceit. In the email below, he threatens the life of an ANZMI investigator and his family.

"Peter Jenkins 19 Jul 14

Hi xxxx,

I've lost my wife because of you, so i think it's only fitting that you lose something in return.
Now your website is only a vigilante website as i described before, so what is going to happen now i am and will take your life, weather (sic) it be by a slash to the throat or maybe i will take a valued member or your family, it seems to me that you seem it necessary to make assumptions in regards to members of the public with which you have no evidence against their affiliation in one way or another against the military. now i promise i will find you and i will make you pay, the only person i ever loved was my partner an you thought it was up too you to play god or whatever reason you thought that made you better then the rest of us humans.

Your time on this earth is coming to an end, in other words your life expectancy has narrowed.

I lost my wife because of you, so its only fitting you lose the same, Im not worried about the police, call me 0459438603, but your life expextency (sic) is very short"


The reason he "lost" his partner was because he had lied to her during the whole of their relationship. It is a common trait, for lying sponging "love rat" wannabes to live a life of complete fiction, with promises of riches to come, as long as their partners pay for everything.

Only pathological liars can get away with this behaviour and Jenkins aka Cane is a very model of an unrepentant Australian pathological liar.

Here is another example of his lying skills where he claims we have got it wrong:

We hold Statutory Declarations from people outside of his family who have provided evidence about his lies. He also states "If he done his homework he would have found my Service Record" We did our homework and no person with the name Jenkins had completed the Army service described by Jenkins aka Cane. He fails to mention that his Service Record is under a different name.

We have no doubt that Jenkins aka Cane will surface and re-offend in another location, perhaps under another name. We urge all persons concerned for the integrity of the Veterans and ex Service communities to keep watch for this disgusting individual

 

Update Peter Kevin Jenkins aka Peter Kevin Cane - 23 Oct 14

The rat has resurfaced and is still using his hackneyed modus operandi. He has departed Queensland and his area of operation is now Western Australia (WA). He appears to be working to the same script he used in Queensland. Here are reports from Perth WA about his latest activities.

Victim 1

"I was sucked into his lies about being in the special forces and his gun shot wounds stories. He told me so many lies and I felt totally degraded after I found out that he wasn't who he claimed to be. I met him off a dating site called Oasis and he had been to my house a few times. When we found out the truth he started threatening myself and my daughter. I reported him to the police and was considering a VRO but he backed off and hasn't contacted me in a while. I had him banned from Oasis as I emailed the site to tell them that he is a con man and fraud".

From family member of Victim 2

"He said he served at 3 Battalion Royal Australian Regiment then 2nd Commando Regiment then Special Air Service Regiment. He alleged he served for 17 years in the Army and went to Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA), his father was military. His son is allegedly now at ADFA. He claims he did an exchange with US Army in Sacramento, California USA. He showed footage of a Channel Nine documentary he claims he appeared in, of course he could not be identified in the documentary. He mentioned he was shot four times, showed his wounds and he said he lost his mate, I believe the name to be Xxxx xxxxx. I couldn't find any such death. The date alleged was around 22 Sep 2012. His attitude seemed a bit too much bravado for an ex SASR soldier. He mentioned using a HKMP6, to which I couldn't find (hkmp5 and hkmp7 I could find) and claims it was a 9mm weapon. Used the names of places in Afghanistan, Tarin Kowt, Urozgan Province etc. Names of different aircraft used, and military vehicles. Yet some of the names used such as Bushmaster was referred to as Bushranger were a bit off.

Claims he started at ADFA as a lieutenant and reached rank of Captain. Dropped names, claims to know Corporal Ben Roberts-Smith. Offered to take me to the "kill house" in Swanbourne and observe the boys going through. Claims to own weapons and has a firearms licence."


ANZMI Investigators do not use profane language when writing up wannabes like Jenkins, but if we did, we would say that Jenkins is a Mongrel Bastard who has:

Threatened to kill an ANZMI Investigator and his family.
Threatened the family of one of his victims.
Threatened innocent people who have woken up to his lies and deceit.
Falsely claimed to have served as an elite soldier.
Falsely claimed to have been wounded in action.
Falsely claimed to be a Returned Veteran.

Jenkins has clearly committed a raft of offences. In particular against the Defence Act 1903, Part VII section 80A having falsely claimed to be a returned soldier. This offence is punishable by a maximum fine of $3.300 or six months imprisonment or both. The problem is, unlike other States, the WA Police will not even accept reports regarding this offence.'

Jenkins is the lowest of the low, he preys on vulnerable honest people who are genuinely looking for companionship. His swarthy appearance and his ability to lie without compunction make him a very dangerous and evil individual, who lacks the ability to attract a companion relying on his innate assets. He is a pathological liar, who when cornered will threaten violence.

We remind ex SASR members that Jenkins is sullying the impeccable reputation of the Regiment. We ask Veterans and ex Service persons all over Australia, and particularly in Western Australia to keep watch for Jenkins. Together we can keep up with his movements and "hound" him until he ceases his abominable behaviour.

Finally we say to Jenkins - "Go to hell because that is where you belong"
 
 

Update: Peter Kevin Jenkins aka Peter Kevin Cane – 22 Apr 15

 

Jenkins is back on duty in Brisbane.

His "mission" in Brisbane coincided with the latest Defence deployments to Iraq.  Jenkins told a very nice and genuine lady that he was resting before deployment to Iraq with Special Air Service Regiment (SASR).

His latest and disgusting heroic stories include being  shot four times in Afghanistan, resulting in the loss of one lung, and having a metal plate inserted into his chest.  His life was saved by the American Base Hospital in Germany where he was  recuperating for six months.

Despite his wounding and loss of body parts he is now  off to Iraq to fight against ISIS.

During his sojourn in Brisbane he stayed at a Brisbane Hotel and made it known that Defence was paying his account - Yeh and pigs can fly.

Jenkins arranges dates from Internet Dating Sites and being a naturally inadequate person has to adopt the persona of a battle hardened Army Veteran to charm a Lady.

In real life he is nothing but a frightened idiot who could not even cope with Army Recruit Training from which he was sacked after a couple of weeks for being "Not Suited to be a Soldier".

Before this latest "mission" he operated in Perth Western Australia and before that in the Sunshine Coast area of Queensland.

We will do all we can to have Police action taken against Jenkins for falsely claiming to be a Returned Veteran. 

Those who choose to use Internet Dating Sites should keep a watch for this liar, conman and pathological liar and let us know where he is operating

 

UPDATE 09 JULY 2015

BEWARE JENKINS IS NOW OPERATING UNDER THE NAME OF DOBSON.

Here is a new Facebook entry that he has created:

Since our last report he has been operating in the Eastern States.  It is believed he may have travelled  back to Western Australia, but at the moment could be anywhere.

Here is a recent report about him:

"From my understanding this creep pretends to be an ex-SASR soldier as well as a current St John's Ambulance MICA Paramedic so he can pray on young and vulnerable woman and girls. The latest information is that he is going by the name Peter Dobson, is residing in Queensland and is currently unemployed"

We previously detailed his activities in Brisbane and  can now report that prior to his arrival in Brisbane, he was in jail in Tamworth, New South Wales. Below is a Newspaper Report that shows Jenkins as being a small time criminal and a drunk rather than the debonair, swaggering Special Air Service Soldier that he would have people believe.

As detailed in the above newspaper report Jenkins has a criminal history in New South Wales, South Australia and Tasmania. Also in most Australian States he has trawled Dating Sites and told disgusting lies about himself.

Following our last update JENKINS (now known as DOBSON) wrote us another of his disgusting threatening emails:

We suggest that any person who has the displeasure of meeting or communicating with Jenkins aka Dobson report his presence to us and their nearest Police Station. We will continue to pursue him until he stops portraying himself as a returned wounded Veteran.  

 

UPDATE 11 NOV  2015 - JENKINS aka DOBSON aka NATHAN CANE

JENKINS IS STILL ON THE PROWL AND NOW USES THE NAME:  NATHAN CANE.

He is still "surfing" date websites seeking vulnerable ladies.

Have no doubt Jenkins  is a criminal, conman, liar and a wannabe.  He is back in Western Australia and continues trawling for "marks" on date websites.  Here are some of his latest false claims:

Notice that he says "Hate playing games??!!"  "Hate being told lies??!!"

They are interesting utterances, as Jenkins aka Cane is the king of games and deception and is a pathological liar.

He is not a "professional" does not have a "Bachelors Degree", does not speak Dutch

Beware of Jenkins aka Dobson aka Cane.

As a service to the community let us know if you have been, or currently are, a victim of Jenkins/Dobson/Cane
