This includes emergency travel like the death of a loved one. First, the Army is providing the essentials while you’re deployed so there’s not a need for a lot of money overseas.
It’s not like you just book your own flight home from Afghanistan on Delta. He says he can come home but you have to request his leave through an email address. Second, you can have access to your money, so this is yet another lie.
I had a c-section and was in the hospital in a private room for three days. They may very well be using the picture of a real soldier but that doesn’t mean you’re talking to him. I’ve seen very badly doctored military ID cards where it’s obvious he’s typed over information on the card.
Continuing to talk to their loved one that they knew before deployment? And when you’re thousands of miles away from each other, he doesn’t have the opportunity to sleep with you. 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. And they’re doing this to many others at the same time they’re doing it to you. Go back and read the first line in bold at the top of this article.
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? If you’re even hesitating on the answer, I’ll help you. It’s just who is going to open up access to their bank account first. Or even better, he told you he is in fact a scammer but he REALLY loves you….long as you keep sending him money. I don’t care if he asks you to mail him a penny – a real soldier will NOT ask you for money.
But you asked him if he was a scammer and he said no! He hasn’t asked for money yet though Don’t worry, he will. Keep asking me more questions – but he does this or he said this or he sent me these pictures. A real soldier makes more overseas than he does when he’s home!!
If any of the above signs sound familiar, it’s only a matter of time. I get emails and messages (or comments) from people who tell me the story and ask me if he’s fake. So let me sum this up: PLEASE quit sending these people money!
Then the supposed CO sends back a letter asking for money to connect a phone line or some other complete lie. He says one of the following…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. And I mean if this was for real and that kind of luck follows him, why do you want to be with him? He says he doesn’t have a mailing address because either he is in a classified unit or his position changes so often.
