How can i find out if someone I have been chatting with is a real soldier or just a scam??He has giving me some info but Im not sure how to find out if its fake or real and he has sent me flight information to but he said he had to cancel his flight and rescedul it because he bought something and is short 433 dollars for the shipping of it so he couldnt catch his flight without the risk of loosing this package
Rule of thumb: If anyone you don't know asks you to give them money, leave.
This is a scam. Cease all contact with this person immediately. In the future, if you ever receive an email from someone you have no relationship with, and they mention money, stop talking to them.
this is some of what he has told me ...
I was enlisted in the Army in 1990.
1990---1995 ...United States Military Academy, West Point, New York
1995---2000 ...US Army's National Training Center (916th Support Brigade) Fort Irwin CA
2000----2005... Camp Zama ,U.S. Army Garrison in Japan
2006---2009 June---U.S Army Rock Island Arsenal IL (Met Marie Taccogna my ex in 2008 and relationship lasted for a year )
2009 .... Helena MT Kirkuk Regional Base, Sather AB Contingency Operations Base Speicher and Ali Base
2010 … Present U.S Army Kabul Military Training Center (Forward Operating Base 195 at the Kabul Military Training Center)
What company? And lets make it easy, send me a friend request on here with his name and i'll look him up. Did he send any pictures?
Sounds like BS to me. 22 years and only made Ssg after going to West Point? Furthermore the only info I can find on 192nd is that they were a National Guard unit from back in the day. He's been in that long and doesn't have a few bucks for a ticket?
