If the person you are speaking to requests money in any form, cut off all communication. Well I just found out that he was courting two women. Nearly every scam I’ve been informed of in the past few months has included this.

Here are some more signs you’re involved in a dating scam. He should also be willing to tell you where he is, where he is stationed, where you would both live after getting married, etc. Has he given you an AKO email address (his name @ mil)? And if he asks you for money, you should cut off contact with him. I have been chatting with a man who said he is in the Army and is in Iraq.

Stacey is an Army wife of a soldier who joined in 2003.

I can not for the life of me , see how this so called sargent would want to give up his life long ambition in the army to be the boyfriend of a woman who he has never personally met. if my thoughts are true, how do i break this news to her. There is no transfer of funds when they go on leave. They will pay for them to travel to any destination they choose. After this, since I had been skeptical for a while, I called her on it and she erupted. Since I called her on the scam, she said I better be careful before I get myself in trouble and that she knows where I live and my child’s name. If I were in your shoes, I would contact the authorities in your area.

The only requirement is that they fly back to the combat zone from the same location. You may also contact a CID (Criminal Investigation Division) for the branch of service she was claiming to be.

I don’t know if he is really in love with me or just playing me to get some time off.. He wants me to write a letter to the army requesting time off so we CAN get married..

he would like to talk on the phone and said there is protocol to follow.

If he wants additional communication capabilities, he can easily afford the cost to do it. I have a few concerns and i need to know if my gut instinct is telling me the right thing, before someone i care for ends up seerioulsy hurt or scammed for money she doesn’t have.

My sister has been speaking with a guy who is in the army and is apparently a sargent.

This is the first time I have ever done anything like this and I am not sure its real. They make more money when they are deployed than when they are stateside and generally have less expenses.

Is there a way to find out if this person is really in the Army? Also, almost every post in Iraq and Afghanistan has MWR phone lines available where the soldiers can call home at no charge.

I am to send a e-mail requesting to get connected with him, he said there is a fee and then all calls are free.
