Have Military Law Questions? Ask a Military Lawyer.
Thank you for the information. Can you tell me if this person is saying they are in U.S. military?
Thank you for your reply. I assume your answer is yes, this is someone who says they are from U.S. Unfortunately, this is a scam. One of many that cyber criminals carry out using online social media and dating sites to perpetrate. This person you have been communicating with is not who they say they are and no, he wouldn't be paying for a military attorney or even be in trouble for what he says he did.
You can report this fraud either to the FTC or IC3, the latter being a Federal criminal investigative arm that works with international law enforcement to track down these cyber criminals.
Please let me know if you need any clarification.
Alright, well although it is still a scam, you would have to report it to UK authorities or Interpol.
Yes. In fact, as mentioned, he is lying about who he is. That is what cyber criminals do. They use someone else's identity.
