    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.

    Where is he stationed? What is his rank? What is his MOS?

    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?

    She sent me the info, none of the information checks out. It's a scam.
