Continuing to talk to their loved one that they knew before deployment? And when you’re thousands of miles away from each other, he doesn’t have the opportunity to sleep with you. Many of these stories contain comments about him saying he loves you within a few days/weeks of starting to talk or he wants to marry you as soon as he returns. And they’re doing this to many others at the same time they’re doing it to you. Go back and read the first line in bold at the top of this article.
Let’s get this straight – you haven’t met and certainly haven’t had the opportunity to have any kind of physical relationship, yet he wants to marry you? If you’re even hesitating on the answer, I’ll help you. It’s just who is going to open up access to their bank account first. Or even better, he told you he is in fact a scammer but he REALLY loves you….long as you keep sending him money. I don’t care if he asks you to mail him a penny – a real soldier will NOT ask you for money.
This usually also includes stories about being a higher ranking officer. Real officers have even LESS time to be online talking to strangers over the internet. He has a child that is dying or needs surgery (or some other medical emergency) and he needs the money to pay for it. On top of that, Generals make a minimum of $12,000 per month in JUST base pay. Many have been provided pictures, copies of military identification cards, even videos.
All military dependents are covered by Tricare, which for the most part is amazing insurance. Real soldiers aren’t paying out of pocket for their kid’s medical care. First, pictures can be grabbed from anywhere on the internet – there’s no guarantee you’re talking to that person. Some use totally fake pictures in uniforms that are all messed up – I’ve seen Army uniforms with Air Force tapes and Navy insignia – no joke.
If you don’t want to read the rest of this article, there is one surefire way to know if your soldier is fake: If a soldier you’re “dating” online asks you for money for ANY reason, it’s a scam. What he really means is she’s going to be his next victim. He is in a special operations unit and therefore cannot share any information with you.
And he is the one who just happened to find her while he was looking around and decided she’s going to be his future wife.
Real military ID pictures basically look like a mugshot – solid background with him in uniform and basically only showing his face (maybe the very top of his shoulders).
