Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Could you explain a little more about the background to your question please
As I understand it your friend is in the US military and has told you that he needs help in transferring some of his belongings home is that correct?
Have you personally met this person (yes there is a reason for the question)
I thought that might be the case
I am afraid that you are being set up to lose money as this is a Scam
The US military do not charge their personnel for returning their belongings after a deployment
You can read more here
You are right to have concerns - the next step will be a request for money
Please ask if you need further details
Please do not worry too much.
Simply change the passwords on your accounts - and alert your bank to check any overseas activities on your account if they occur
You will be fine - but it is still worth warning the bank just in case
More a matter of creating believable accounts that may cause you problems - but wont if you have already warned your bank!
You are most welcome - and well done for having good instincts!
