I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
What else can you tell me about this person? How long have you known them? Have you met in person? Are they asking for money?
If you can link the profile, that would also help. Or, if this is someone who reached out to you initially, and you still have the first message you got from them, that also helps.
Is this him?
Also, I understand that this can be a sensitive situation, but the more information you can give me, the better. Scam artists use made-up names, fake email addresses, and other people's identities. That means that the way to find out if it's a scam its through an analysis of the behavior. Names, email addresses, and photographs change constantly, but the underlying scam has many distinctive earmarks.
Here are two very good reason to be wary, just at first glance.
I'm not finding that name, email address, or those pictures as having been reported in connection with a scam. But that does NOT mean he is legitimate, not by a long shot. If he is asking for money, run. Cut off all contact. That is always a scam.
There are two very easy ways you can find out if someone is really in the military.
One thing you can do on your own is look at the early messages he sent you (especially if you have the first one). Copy/paste it into Google. There's a good chance you'll find other men saying the exact same thing to other people. Scam artists tend to reuse the same letters over and over.
