"It is heartbreaking to hear these stories over and again of people who have sent thousands of dollars to someone they have never met and sometimes have never even spoken to on the phone." According to Grey, the scams typically employ clever, romantically worded requests for money to help the fake “deployed soldier” buy special laptop computers, international telephones, military leave applications, and transportation fees needed to keep the budding “relationship” going. Army Criminal Investigation Command recommends: Never Send Money - "Be extremely suspicious if you are asked for money for transportation costs, communication fees or marriage processing and medical fees." In another despicable outgrowth of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the IRS warns of email phishing scams targeting veterans, current military personnel, and retirees receiving VA disability benefits. Army Criminal Investigation Command (CID) warns that women in the U. and around the world are being scammed by persons pretending to be U. "We cannot stress enough that people need to stop sending money to persons they meet on the internet and claim to be in the U. military," said Chris Grey, Army CID's spokesman in a press release. I was a military girlfriend with a deployed service member and I struggled to balance waiting by the phone with getting out of the house and enjoying life. I always had a feeling about him from the moment we met. Much has changed since my first months as a military girlfriend. Think of your relationship as a beautiful brick wall built by both you and your service member. I laid down on my couch getting ready to watch a movie, wondering what he was doing at that very moment in Iraq. We were growing a relationship, yet everything was ambivalent. On the inside, I was jumping on Oprah’s couch like Tom Cruise did back in the day when he was in-love with Katie Holmes. Because when your semi-boyfriend calls from half-way around this world, this is the exact moment you should avoid being creepy and try to act normal. Five deployments, one military marriage, countless trainings, two babies, multiple TDYs and one giant overseas PCS move filled those seven years.Nothing is worse than diving fresh into difficult conversations in the middle of a legit crisis, such as an injury or illness.

CID warns that these fake soldiers' promises of love and devotion only “end up breaking hearts and bank accounts.” According to CID, the pretend heroes sink so low as to be using the names, ranks and even pictures of actual U. soldiers - some killed in action -- to target women 30 to 55 years old on social media and dating web sites.
