How do i know if a soldier is real

opinion

Each week, I get letters by email, on my website, by Twitter and on Facebook from women who are sending money to Africa and Afghanistan to help service members come home. This is a scam!! These are not men who are in the United States military. They are scam artists preying on desperate women.

I met a sergeant in the Army on Facebook from the Zoosk dating site. We have been texting since May.

“All” soldiers can tell you...

His name is Sgt. Larry Williams, and he was in Afghanistan from Fort Campbell. I tried to raise the money but was making myself sick trying. He says he was deployed to Africa about three weeks ago, and kept asking about the money.

I told him I just did not have it.

His response was that he could not take the texting, so I said I guess that meant that we were over. He responded that he would rather forget about the phone than to lose me. At first, it was three thousand and I sent it.
