Thanks for your understanding Us Army Vacation office” There is no such thing as the US Army Vacation office!
Here is another email from this address: USA kabul “We are sorry to inform you that Major Aaron Perez has been injured in an attack on friday .
We are not sure if he would make it yet but we hope he survives any infection from his wounds and he could return back to his duty post. S Navy Seals because of the secretive nature of his job, we want you to keep our correspondence with you confidential.If you wish that he is released to you immediately.First off, when a Soldier is wounded and has to be Medically evacuated out of country, they are sent to Germany first most of the time.Here is a quote from one of the emails: “Dear mam There is no problem with the form one of the two Us Army logo is a seal and after you fill it and the approval is been send to you the other seal will be put on the form.It is always some sort of story to make the victim feel pity for the fraudster.
They mainly target women that have no Military affiliation, or have never been around the Military, this way they know the women won’t pick up on their lies as fast.
We get ten to twenty emails per day asking if a profile is really a Soldier, and 99% of the time it is a scammer.
For most of us, they are easy to pick out, because we are familiar with the Military and know how it operates.
Most of these fake profiles have several things that should stick out: 1. If they ask for items(care packages) they ask for you to send them to overseas addresses that are not affiliated with the Military, Nigeria etc.
They will have very few friends on the profile, of which most will be women or other fake profiles. Most of the posts will be short sentences, with broken English and misspelled words. They will not have many photos, and the uniform name tapes may not match the profile name. Military members almost always have other friends on their profile that are also Military, these fakes will not have any. The forms they are sending to these people are very convincing, especially if you are not familiar with the military and the way leave works.
First, no one can sign for a Military personnel to go on leave except the Chain of Command.
