Dating scams using skype
Then the supposed CO sends back a letter asking for money to connect a phone line or some other complete lie. He says one of the following…parents died, his wife died in his arms, his wife was killed in a car accident along with all of his children, his children are orphaned and living in some remote location, or he was orphaned……all LIES. And I mean if this was for real and that kind of luck follows him, why do you want to be with him? He says he doesn’t have a mailing address because either he is in a classified unit or his position changes so often.Even in special operations, he’ll have an APO address.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.(661) 748 0240 appears on outbound calls for Skype users who have not set up their Skype caller ID yet and is also utilized by cyber criminals to promote malware and iniatate other scams.Skype is a popular software application that allows users to make voice calls over the Internet.But you asked him if he was a scammer and he said no! He hasn’t asked for money yet though Don’t worry, he will. Keep asking me more questions – but he does this or he said this or he sent me these pictures. A real soldier makes more overseas than he does when he’s home!!If any of the above signs sound familiar, it’s only a matter of time. I get emails and messages (or comments) from people who tell me the story and ask me if he’s fake. So let me sum this up: PLEASE quit sending these people money!
If there were soldiers being denied leave after being overseas for years at a time, it would be ALL over the news. Now, we certainly do have troops in other countries.If all an Army spouse had to do was email her soldier’s commander to get him home from deployment, don’t you think ALL Army spouses would be doing this? The Army does not allow leave requests from Army family members. There are ATMs on any main post and the PX accepts debit and credit cards. Last time I checked we aren’t on a lot of peacekeeping missions in Nigeria and Syria.In fact, even in the case of the death of an immediate family member, the information has to be verified by the American Red Cross before the soldier’s command is contacted for possible leave by officials at the Red Cross – they don’t just take your word for it. He wants you to pay for a phone line, cell phone or calling card so you can talk to each other. My husband deployed multiple times and we never paid for a single phone call. Not to mention, soldiers are making enough to buy a phone card if they really had to. He’s about to retire and then he can marry you and live happily ever after. LOL A General will have well over 20 years of service and less than 1% of officers will make it to the rank of General. If he says he’s somewhere that there isn’t an ATM or another way to get money, there is also nothing for him to spend money on. And if we were, a real soldier wouldn’t tell you that. I originally had other questions you could ask regarding his training, etc, but I’m removing those because many people believed whatever ridiculous information he came up with when they asked. Nine times out of ten, they “met” their soldier on a social networking site, such as Facebook, or an online dating site. ********** UPDATE: Two women were prosecuted for receiving over one million dollars from 374 people in these scams! Since starting the website in 2004, I have received many emails from people who believe they are dating a soldier when, in most cases, they actually are not.
