He said that he applied for his retirement before his deployment and by the end of the year, he got his papers. It was with my agreement, and maybe it was my mistake.
The information you have already provided to the scam artist puts your financial life at risk.
Not everyone using online dating sites is looking for love. As if all that isn’t bad enough, romance scammers are now involving their victims in online bank fraud.
Scammers create fake online profiles using photos of other people — even stolen pictures of real military personnel. And they tug at your heartstrings with made-up stories about how they need money — for emergencies, hospital bills, or travel. Here’s how it works: The scammers set up dating profiles to meet potential victims.
Scammers have all kinds of reasons they need your money -- to help him retire, to be able to come back for R&R (rest and relaxation), to return home from deployment. Even if he is deployed overseas, he is stationed somewhere with someone. Please don’t send any money to this address and stop all communication with these people immediately! Change your phone number, email address, other social network addresses, and any of your financial account passwords and account number too.
Unit information is public information available on the internet. If one or any of these things is true, this person is most likely a scam artist -- not the love of your life.
And if the person’s online profile disappears a few days after they meet you, that’s another tip-off. According to the text I got last night Fred said we have till Friday to sent the $600 to the lawyer or we both die.
