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.

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.

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.

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 $12,000 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.

He says his mother’s name is Amelia Walker I have other info he said about his father’s name. If someone could help me identify if he is real or not I would greatly appreciate it.

Their revelations come as new figures published today by the charity Help for Heroes show that one in four partners or family members of British military veterans feel their own mental health has been affected by their loved one's service.

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.

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.
