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 am to send a e-mail requesting to get connected with him, he said there is a fee and then all calls are free.
He also mentioned something about registering and then I can request for him to get leave. When soldiers are overseas, there is no reason for other people to be paying for their communication.
In other cases that I have been informed of, the request is typically granted and then an outrageous amount of money (in the thousands) is requested to purchase a flight. We have beem talking for quite sometime now and he says he’s deployed to Afghanistan and will be going to iraq for 3months so he will not be able to chat online. They wrote back saying I should subscribe with a fee of 524. Depending on where he is, he may not be able to call very often but it would be very unlikely for it to be completely impossible.These scams where you believe you are dating a soldier are becoming more and more common. Do you think I am being paranoid or now that he has made his decision and picked me. He isn’t going to use me for time off and then blow me off when he gets back to the states.. The thing that sticks out most to me is him asking you to write to request time off for him so he can get married. The Army does not process requests for time off from the girlfriend (or wife for that matter) of a soldier. Some units will not even allow individual time off and the soldier can only have leave when the unit as a whole takes it.They seem to come up with new ways to run the scam on a daily basis. We have been talking for quite sometime and he says he loves me.. You didn’t mention if he is deployed, but I’m willing to bet that after you request his leave time, he will then request money to be able to take the leave.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.Now he says he will comit suicide so that the Taliban will kill him.I told him if he loved his kuds, he wouldn’t hurt them.
