This is a common scam. There is no way for a military member to pay to break their contract. Military contracts are broken at commander discretion based on hardship or other legitimate medical/social needs. There is absolutely no fee for it, if command chooses to do it.
Most commonly, these scams involves African nationals that have stolen or fabricated a social media identity and then use that meet people and get money out of them.
No problem. Take care.
