I am not sure if this is a scam that the guys pull, to keep themselves busy.. I don’t know if he is really in love with me or just playing me to get some time off.. He wants me to write a letter to the army requesting time off so we CAN get married..
Now he says he will comit suicide so that the Taliban will kill him.
He apparently has 2 children who attend a boarding school. Then she said I could request leave on her behalf and she gave me an email address. They answered immediately asking me to fill out 1 form. The next day they asked me to Western Union 50 to her replacement in Ecuador and she would be granted leave within 12 hrs. They listed the Dept of Defense at an address not in the Pentagon, but at Washington DC, WA. I have all the forms and documentation and IP address. Quite a few that have contacted me about similar scams have said they and their families were threatened when they refused to send money (or refused to send more money).
I can not for the life of me , see how this so called sargent would want to give up his life long ambition in the army to be the boyfriend of a woman who he has never personally met. if my thoughts are true, how do i break this news to her. There is no transfer of funds when they go on leave. They will pay for them to travel to any destination they choose. After this, since I had been skeptical for a while, I called her on it and she erupted. Since I called her on the scam, she said I better be careful before I get myself in trouble and that she knows where I live and my child’s name. If I were in your shoes, I would contact the authorities in your area.
They seem to come up with new ways to run the scam on a daily basis. We have been talking for quite sometime and he says he loves me.. You didn’t mention if he is deployed, but I’m willing to bet that after you request his leave time, he will then request money to be able to take the leave.
If the person you are speaking to requests money in any form, cut off all communication. Well I just found out that he was courting two women. Nearly every scam I’ve been informed of in the past few months has included this.
Also, she should be getting a verification number shortly from the base , and then she will be gettting his leave money as he has put her down as his next of kin.
