Are You Dating an Army Soldier or a Fake?

If you don’t want to read the rest of this article, there is one surefire way to know if your soldier is fake:

If a soldier you’re “dating” online asks you for money for ANY reason, it’s a scam. Period. End of story. [Click to tweet this]

And as my husband says….If you have to ask, it’s a scam.

**********

UPDATE: Two women were prosecuted for receiving over one million dollars from 374 people in these scams! Story here.

Since starting the website in 2004, I have received many emails from people who believe they are dating a soldier when, in most cases, they actually are not. Nine times out of ten, they “met” their soldier on a social networking site, such as Facebook, or an online dating site. And he is the one who just happened to find her while he was looking around and decided she’s going to be his future wife. What he really means is she’s going to be his next victim.

Stories That Are Lies

He’s in Special Operations

1. He is in a special operations unit and therefore cannot share any information with you. It’s true that special ops guys can’t discuss their job but that also means they don’t tell random strangers they’re in special ops. My husband was special ops. When we would go out with a bunch of guys from his unit and people would ask what they did, they simply replied they were in the Army. Special ops guys don’t brag about it. They’re known as “quiet professionals” for a reason.

He’s Been Denied Leave

2. He has been deployed for two years, has been denied leave time and will not be coming home any time soon therefore you won’t be able to meet. If there were soldiers being denied leave after being overseas for years at a time, it would be ALL over the news. It’s a lie.

He’s on a Top Secret Mission

3. He is on a top secret mission in a country other than Iraq or Afghanistan (or even in Iraq or Afghanistan – it’s all lies). Now, we certainly do have troops in other countries. However, they don’t talk about it and they certainly don’t tell you they are on a “top secret mission”. Also, any special operations soldier worth his beret will not reveal his location to someone he doesn’t know (or even someone he does!).

He Needs Permission from Someone in His Unit

4. He says he is not allowed to talk about what he does, however, he has cleared it with his CO that he can tell you enough to make you believe he is who he says. This is followed by outrageous lies. If he truly is not allowed to share any details about his job, his CO doesn’t even allow him to talk about it with family, much less someone he met on the internet. Sometimes with this tactic, they will ask you to email/send mail to the CO to ask for permission. Then the supposed CO sends back a letter asking for money to connect a phone line or some other complete lie.

Everyone Around Him is Dead

5. He says one of the following….his parents died, his wife died in his arms, his wife was killed in a car accident along with all of his children, his children are orphaned and living in some remote location, or he was orphaned……all LIES. My favorite is when they combine all these things. Really? I know some very unlucky people but this is just over the top. And I mean if this was for real and that kind of luck follows him, why do you want to be with him?

He Has No Mailing Address

6. He says he doesn’t have a mailing address because either he is in a classified unit or his position changes so often. Even in special operations, he’ll have an APO address. And this is not a post office box and it’s not in Nigeria!! It also has nothing to do with a Western Union office. And you don’t have to send it through a relative because he can’t give out his address.

He Needs Money for Leave

7. He says he needs you to pay for his R&R leave because the Army doesn’t pay for it. This is absolutely false! A real soldier will not request money to travel home as he doesn’t need it! The Army pays for all travel to and from a war zone. This includes emergency travel like the death of a loved one. It’s not like you just book your own flight home from Afghanistan on Delta.

He Needs You to Request His Leave

8. He says he can come home but you have to request his leave through an email address. If all an Army spouse had to do was email her soldier’s commander to get him home from deployment, don’t you think ALL Army spouses would be doing this? There would be no one deployed. The Army does not allow leave requests from Army family members. In fact, even in the case of the death of an immediate family member, the information has to be verified by the American Red Cross before the soldier’s command is contacted for possible leave by officials at the Red Cross – they don’t just take your word for it.

He Needs You to Pay for a Phone Line

9. He wants you to pay for a phone line, cell phone or calling card so you can talk to each other. Real soldiers can call home for FREE. My husband deployed multiple times and we never paid for a single phone call. If he asks for this, he’s a scam artist. Not to mention, soldiers are making enough to buy a phone card if they really had to.

He’s About to Retire

10. He’s about to retire and then he can marry you and live happily ever after. This usually also includes stories about being a higher ranking officer. Typical story and it’s all lies. Real officers have even LESS time to be online talking to strangers over the internet.

His Child Needs XYZ

11. He has a child that is dying or needs surgery (or some other medical emergency) and he needs the money to pay for it. All military dependents are covered by Tricare, which for the most part is amazing insurance. I had a c-section and was in the hospital in a private room for three days. Know how much I paid? $12. Real soldiers aren’t paying out of pocket for their kid’s medical care.

He’s a General

12. And he’s only 28! Wow, talk about a quick advancement! LOL A General will have well over 20 years of service and less than 1% of officers will make it to the rank of General. On top of that, Generals make a minimum of $12,000 per month in JUST base pay. So why exactly would he need money from you?

His Pay is Deposited in the U.S. and He Has No Access

13. Seriously? First, the Army is providing the essentials while you’re deployed so there’s not a need for a lot of money overseas. Second, you can have access to your money, so this is yet another lie. There are ATMs on any main post and the PX accepts debit and credit cards. If he says he’s somewhere that there isn’t an ATM or another way to get money, there is also nothing for him to spend money on. So why does he need it?

He’s On a Peacekeeping Mission in {insert name of country}

14. Last time I checked we aren’t on a lot of peacekeeping missions in Nigeria and Syria. And if we were, a real soldier wouldn’t tell you that.

Verify The Truth

So how can you find out if he’s telling the truth?

The absolute best way to verify is with #2 – ask him to email you from his AKO address.

  1. Ask for his mailing address overseas. If he can’t provide one, he is lying. There is nothing secretive about an APO address. And an APO address will not be a post office box. It’s also not at a Western Union office!
  2. Ask him to give you his AKO email address rather than his yahoo, hotmail, etc. This will be his firstname.lastname@us.army.mil. All soldiers have an AKO account. There is NO reason why he can’t provide it – regardless of what unit he is assigned to, what his mission may be, who he’s working for, etc. And the AKO account is free so him saying his credit card hasn’t been processed or his account is locked because he didn’t pay is also a lie. If he refuses to provide this, he’s fake.

I originally had other questions you could ask regarding his training, etc, but I’m removing those because many people believed whatever ridiculous information he came up with when they asked.

But you say he’s sent you pictures or a copy of his ID?

Many have been provided pictures, copies of military identification cards, even videos. First, pictures can be grabbed from anywhere on the internet – there’s no guarantee you’re talking to that person. They may very well be using the picture of a real soldier but that doesn’t mean you’re talking to him. Some of these scumbags are using the pictures of soldiers who were killed in action to run their scams. It’s sick.

Someone told me once they were dating a General and she even had pictures. I told her to send them to me. Guess who the pictures were of? David Petraeus!

Some use totally fake pictures in uniforms that are all messed up – I’ve seen Army uniforms with Air Force tapes and Navy insignia – no joke.

I’ve seen very badly doctored military ID cards where it’s obvious he’s typed over information on the card. What’s funny is he’ll type over the only legitimate information on the card and replace it with something that makes no sense. Such as rank of SPC and pay grade of MAJ.

The pictures they use many times on military IDs are so fake and it’s so obvious. Real military ID pictures basically look like a mugshot – solid background with him in uniform and basically only showing his face (maybe the very top of his shoulders). Someone sent me one the other day that not only looked nothing like a military ID (more like a business card for a recruiter), it had a picture of a soldier who was obviously at a military ball or some other formal event as he had a bow tie with his dress uniform. That is NOT an ID picture.

Or maybe he’s added you on Facebook and even changed his relationship status to you

The Army posted this example on their Facebook page:

scam-soldier

So exactly which one are you dating? Oh and by the way, I’ve never seen a soldier unless it was on an official page (such as the base commander’s page) that uses his rank in his name.

Soldiers Don’t Have Time For This

99.9% of military guys overseas don’t have the time available to them to email, chat and Skype for hours at a time or even every day online. They are too busy doing their JOB. And most have no interest in “dating” someone online while they’re deployed. Continuing to talk to their loved one that they knew before deployment? Absolutely! Time to peruse dating sites and chat for hours? Absolutely not.

But he said he loves you and wants to marry you….even though you “met” last week

I’m assuming if you’re falling for this, you’ve never been in a military town. Go downtown in a military town to a club one night and let me know how many single soldiers are there looking for the love of their life….not exactly what their goal is. And when you’re thousands of miles away from each other, he doesn’t have the opportunity to sleep with you. So the point would be???

Many of these stories contain comments about him saying he loves you within a few days/weeks of starting to talk or he wants to marry you as soon as he returns. Let’s get this straight – you haven’t met and certainly haven’t had the opportunity to have any kind of physical relationship, yet he wants to marry you? Does this sound feasible to you? If you’re even hesitating on the answer, I’ll help you. It’s not. They’re lying so they can get in your wallet. And they’re doing this to many others at the same time they’re doing it to you. It’s just who is going to open up access to their bank account first.

But you asked him if he was a scammer and he said no!

Come on, think about this! Why would he admit it to you? Or even better, he told you he is in fact a scammer but he REALLY loves you…..as long as you keep sending him money.

He hasn’t asked for money yet though

Don’t worry, he will. If any of the above signs sound familiar, it’s only a matter of time. He may get pretty far into his story before he asks. He may wait until his plane is suppose to leave and you’re meeting him in less than 24 hours. Then all of the sudden disaster strikes and he needs three grand to be able to come home. LIES!

Even though he’s doing these things, you still think he’s the real deal

I hate to be harsh but if any of the above sounds familiar, it’s a SCAM. Don’t sit there and think you’re the exception. You’re not the lucky one who’s encountered these signs but somehow your guy is the real deal. He’s FAKE. He doesn’t love you. He doesn’t want to marry you. And sooner or later, he’s going to ask for money.

I get emails and messages (or comments) from people who tell me the story and ask me if he’s fake. I answer yes, it’s a scam. And what do they do? Keep asking me more questions – but he does this or he said this or he sent me these pictures. Guess what? The answer is still the same. It’s a scam. Go back and read the first line in bold at the top of this article. I don’t care if he asks you to mail him a penny – a real soldier will NOT ask you for money. A real soldier makes more overseas than he does when he’s home!!

The Scam Checklist

So let me sum this up:

  • If he’s asking for money for a phone line, it’s a scam.
  • If he’s asking for money for travel home, it’s a scam.
  • If he needs you to help him move money from one location to another, it’s a scam.
  • If he asks for your bank account information, it’s a scam.
  • If he wants you to wire money for ANY reason via Western Union (or similar service), it’s a scam.
  • If he asks you to email his command so he can come home, it’s a scam.
  • If he tells you to open a bank account or credit card for him, it’s a scam (and this one could get you into legal trouble!)

PLEASE quit sending these people money! If you’re just itching to give away your money, send it to me! haha After all, I’ve spent more hours than I can count updating this article with the latest techniques and answering questions here and elsewhere.

Finally, if you don’t believe me, please read this article from the Army – Soldier Scams

    Hi, i found this site while searching about internet scam. I’m from Germany and i was contacted by a us soldier over a social network. He told me that he’s in Kabul, Afghanistan right now and we started to talk over yahoo. He was very nice and gentle and never asked for money…after three days he told me he fell in love…wow…but i’m not sleeping on a tree so i started to investigate. Found this site and much other Information about romance scan and was sure…I found a pic of him which he sent me as a current pic but the one i found was already two years old and with another first name in Google+ I confronted him with that…attacked him with words, he wanted to give me the E-Mail of his commander but i only answered i know it would be another yahoo adress.
    My question is…do i have to report this anywhere? I read about the cid…and will the real man behind this stolen identity be informed? I’m so sorry for him.
    i only wonder that he didn’t use a General rang he only uses the staff seargent rang. I followed the header of his E-Mail at yahoo and the ip was located in the us. he wasn’t able or willing to give me an APO adress or something like this with the reason i attacked him and he wont give any evidence.
    I would really be happy if i get an answer here. so thanks in advance.
    J.

    Hmmm. Well, please allow me to let you in on a few things you don’t know about me. Charles Parent is a pseudonym. I am a retired Lt.Cdr from the US Navy, SEAL Team 8, and I KNOW how SpecOps work!! At NO time is it required for ANY serviceman ( or woman) to pay for an MEP. Further, actual military email addresses end with .gov or .mil, NOT with civilian email preoviders. You are NOT Dorothy Cornolly, and your email address and contact info, as well as your IP have been reported to US Army CID (Criminal Investigation Division) as well as the NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigation Service) for investigation for fraud! You should be ASHAMED of yourself, for trying to scam people by using the good name of a servicewoman who put her life on the line every day to protect freedom!

  • Colleen July 12, 2015, 10:02 am

    If you want to track down the location where the emails are coming from, go to “readnotify.com”. You can put a tracker on an email that you send to him which he will not know anything about. When he opens the email, a report will be sent to you with his location, how many times he opened the email, and the time he opened the email. You will also get his IP address off the report. You can plug the IP address into a IP locator which will pull up his location on a map. You can prove if he is lying without him knowing it. At that point, do not contact him anymore, but block your email account. Do not tell the soldier what you have done. You do not want him to send viruses or trojan horses to your computer. You can then contact the FBI, even if you have not sent any money. He has still committed fraud and may be defrauding other women. We can help each other and stop him. By not telling him, you are helping the FBI catch him in the act. You can also use software through your computer to text him, or applications on cell phones that will generate a different phone number for you so that you do not give out your actual phone information. “Burner” is such an application for iPhones. Burner even gives you a satellite view of where the phone is at the time! There are many more. You can do a search on the internet to find what you need to protect yourself . You can do internet searches on how to block your specific email accounts so that he cannot access them. Be sure to write your passwords down for these programs, because you may not be able to change them if you forget. Spokeo.com is another website. However, most of the criminals know how to protect themselves from it, and you will get a blank report. We do not want the same thing to happen to readnotify.com.

    Report Them: All forms of financial fraud, which is exactly what these fake, “love for money” soldiers are trying to pull, can now be reported through the StopFraud.gov website: http://www.stopfraud.gov/report.html

    NOTE: No branch of the U.S. military charges service members money for permission to take leave. Leave is earned, not purchased. As the U.S. 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 addition, be very suspicious if the person you are corresponding with wants you to mail anything to an African country.

    Where to Turn Them In: If you suspect or know you have been victimized by a fake soldier scammer, you can report the incident to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3).

    Do i met someone off pof he messaged me and . We have been talking for a month and a half. And the grammar is wrong snd me may have spoke for 5 minutes on the phone the rest have been emailing and text. He wants my online account info to put money in my account from his ex boss he says hes been in the army 13 years i know this is all bull but then he also wants me to get benefits from the military but another thing that seems off is he wants me to talk to hus General about the benefits. That doesn’t seem like something they would do. And his general us in a different state then we are. And if course ge wants to marry me and be a family i know that im right i guess i just need deeper confirmation. I have already been questioning him on things that arent match in up. He sent a picture of a military driver license i know its fake and have been asking basic questions that would be on there to see hus answer. They were wrong. Thanjs for the help

    Hi, I’ve been emailing a guy who says he’s in the american army based in Syria. We’ve been using gmail and hang outs to keep in touch. He seems normal and we talk for a short time before he starts his shift. He’s asked me to email militarycallcard.usmil@op.pl to request permission to talk on the phone. Is this normal procedure?

      You can try to contact the authorities in your area but it’s highly unlikely they will be able to get your money back. I’m sorry.

    I don’t won’t to believe I fell for a scammer but after reading the things being posted here I have to face reality and it breaks my heart because I really care for the jerk. He tells me he’s ari force special ops and is stationed at bagram air force base in afganistan. He says his name is Johnson Mattias Aspan. Never been married but has a daughter with his ex girlfriend. He hasn’t ask for money but he says we can only communicate through yahoo messanger or his yahoo email and that his only means of communication is through his work device and he has to share it with fellow soldiers. Yes, he’s saying I’m the one he’s been searching for and he loves me and wants us to marry when he returns home in a few months. I offered to by him a phone so we could take and he ask me to make it the new iphone6 but it just didn’t sit right with me so I started doing my homework . I feel like such a damned fool not because I almost feel for the bs but because I was actually falling for him!
