Internet Dating Scam: Fake Soldiers

I just came across a post on “A Soldier’s Perspective” discussing a rather disgusting and disturbing trend that has guys posing as soldiers on Internet dating sites. Here’s the quote from CJ’s:

The latest trend involves trolling internet dating sites and convincing women that they are honorable Soldiers who have fallen in love and would do anything to communicate with the object of their affection. But, because they are deployed to Afghanistan or Iraq, they need you to sign up for an expensive telecommunications service like “Military TELEX” in order to make that happen. They profess unending love as their motivator and, unfortunately, many women have fallen for it.

The BIG red flag here is that the guy is asking for money. NEVER fall for that con.

If you come across anyone on a dating site who is asking you for money, regardless of the reason; block them immediately from further contact and then report them to the internet dating service.

To read specific details about about one incident, read CJ’s post “The New Military Dating Scam“.

    Has anyone heard the name Whitney Wart? I have been chatting with him on his facebook yahoo messenger and e-mailing back and forth … Hasn’t asked me to send him anything but when I ask to do voice chat he says that he is using his friends phone and don’t know if he can use that from it… I used one of the ladies ideas about the picture being taken with a sign on him just few minutes ago he said he would but we will see… Yes I believe him to be a scammer because language is not the same as we would speak here and when I said something to him about it he said he don’t understand so I didn’t explain as he would figure out how we speak here and get smarter that way also… He asked me to sent up an account on the asaa web site said it was for military accounts so he could have is money sent there and I haven’t done it i’m afraid it’s some kind of scam… Well I will post more when I find out if he is real or fake using someone elses photos …If anyone could give feed back would be helpful … Thank You Wendy

    Has anyone heard of a Guy cay called Jack Fraizer a Captain who says he is in afghanistan . He has scammed a friend of mine of $200. Said he lost his wallet also asked for more. My friend is having some problems and is an easy target at the moment. If some knows a Soldier who is in the special forces there could they let me know please.

    Regards Kevin Fry
