Military and dating
He may get pretty far into his story before he asks. If you’re just itching to give away your money, send it to me!
He may wait until his plane is suppose to leave and you’re meeting him in less than 24 hours. haha After all, I’ve spent more hours than I can count updating this article with the latest techniques and answering questions here and elsewhere.
Oh and by the way, I’ve never seen a soldier unless it was on an official page (such as the base commander’s page) that uses his rank in his name. I’m assuming if you’re falling for this, you’ve never been in a military town.
99.9% of military guys overseas don’t have the time available to them to email, chat and Skype for hours at a time or even every day online. And most have no interest in “dating” someone online while they’re deployed. Go downtown in a military town to a club one night and let me know how many single soldiers are there looking for the love of their life…exactly what their goal is.
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.
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!

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 ,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.
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.
