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!If this article helps you or has kept you from becoming the victim of a scam (or sending him even more money), please consider donating to help maintain this website so that others will be able to utilize this information as well. It’s true that special ops guys can’t discuss their job but that also means they don’t tell random strangers they’re in special ops. When we would go out with a bunch of guys from his unit and people would ask what they did, they simply replied they were in the Army. They’re known as “quiet professionals” for a reason. He has been deployed for two years, has been denied leave time and will not be coming home any time soon therefore you won’t be able to meet. He is on a top secret mission in a country other than Iraq or Afghanistan (or even in Iraq or Afghanistan – it’s all lies).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.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.
The Army pays for all travel to and from a war zone.
Within the last three months I noticed the ridiculous changes that aren't helping people who want to post on backpage and have to pay for this by the way.
First thing I noticed was I was only able to write a small sentence describing myself.
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.
