First, no one can sign for a Military personnel to go on leave except the Chain of Command.If they are coming home from overseas on emergency leave, from a Combat Zone, as a lot of the scammer’s are saying, they would not have to pay to come home.These scammers are praying on the hearts of the civilians that care so much for our troops fighting for us overseas, and they feel like they are helping out by helping someone in the Military.One email I read was supposedly from a Soldiers Chain of Command, and told the woman that he had been Wounded In Action and evacuated to a hospital in the United Kingdom.
Thanks Us Army Marriage Department No such thing as US Army Marriage Department!
The government covers travel to and from the HOR(Home of Record).
If they are coming home for scheduled R&R, from the Combat Zone, the Government also covers this.
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.
