ONLINE ROMANCE SCAM INFORMATION

From: Sweden Skåne län Malmö @northeast Time : 2014-02-15 17:24:00

Read the information given by the US armed forces CID



Army CID is warning anyone who is involved in online dating to proceed with caution when corresponding with persons claiming to be U.S. Soldiers currently serving in Afghanistan or elsewhere.



Army CID receives hundreds of allegations a month from victims who state they got involved in an online relationship with someone, on a legitimate dating website or other social media website, who claims to be a U.S. Soldier. The "Soldier" then begins asking for money for various false service-related needs such as transportation costs, communication fees, marriage, processing and medical fees. Victims of these online scams have lost tens of thousands of dollars, with a very low possibility of recovery.



The U.S. has established numerous task force organizations to deal with this growing epidemic; unfortunately, many times the people committing these scams are from African countries using untraceable email addresses, routing accounts through numerous locations around the world and utilizing pay per hour Internet cyber cafes, which often times maintain no accountability of use.



Further information can be found on this site

Thanks for this timely info.

Recently I''ve had two or three impersonators pretending to be serving US miliary in Afghanistan send me "friend requests" on the QQ message service. One even had the hide to portray being an army General over there.

I soon realised they were African scammers, wanting money sent to them for some trumped up cause.

What on Earth will these thieving criminals think of next?
