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.

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.He is passed cause I don’t believe him about the BTA. The postings from Ukraine, in particular Lugansk are a mine field of scam profiles. I became suspicious after her response telling me that she had not corresponded with anyone else before and that I should ask her what ever I wanted to know, because she was new to this, assuring me that she was an honest person and would only answer honestly no matter what.The agency of Translation will contact you with your first or second letter requesting money for translations. I have hit on several, mostly for fun after I was taken the first time. So after a second response from her with no answers to the questions I had asked and after reading your site I decided to try something to see if she was genuine. I picked a girl from the AOL personals who called herself " [email protected] Her profile was nice and she appeared to be a sincere woman.This is a scam as well as soldiers do not have to pay for their flights in or out of Iraq or Afghanistan. What I want to know is are there no internet connections in Iraq and is there a cheaper way to call? There’s also no reason why YOU should be paying for it.
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.If he wants additional communication capabilities, he can easily afford the cost to do it.

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.
