I have tried to tell my sister this all sounds like a hoax, but she is falling for this MIKE guy fast. First, the military does not ask civilians (relatives or otherwise) to write to request leave for a soldier. Secondly, there would not be an exchange of money involved with it.He apparently has 2 children who attend a boarding school. Then she said I could request leave on her behalf and she gave me an email address. They answered immediately asking me to fill out 1 form. The next day they asked me to Western Union 50 to her replacement in Ecuador and she would be granted leave within 12 hrs. They listed the Dept of Defense at an address not in the Pentagon, but at Washington DC, WA. I have all the forms and documentation and IP address. Quite a few that have contacted me about similar scams have said they and their families were threatened when they refused to send money (or refused to send more money).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.Does anybody heard of Steve Frank Rock, who supposed to be stationed in Yemen. We been texting for a year and a half and never asked me for money, until now that he asked me for BTA money or airline won’t let him get on the plane.
But with online dating sites, you can connect for free with free dating sites or for a small monthly fee on paid dating sites that is equal to a couple of drinks that you want easily spend a given night.
this money will not be in a cheque form as the army has to be careful of fraud.
therefore they will be using western union for the transaction.
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.
