My finance' is being subjected to hazing by a Marine base,

My finance' is being subjected to hazing by a Marine base, which he is Navy, he is desperately seeking help. I myself witnessed first hand of how bad they are provoking him and am furious. How can he get separated without losing his benefits.....by me saying "provoking" him, I mean, they will not let him drive on base, the two years he has been there....he gets out in July 2017 but can not handle it until then, I am truly worried about him and his mental state. "Provoking" him I also am talking about provoking him to anger by making derogatory remarks and even leaving bruises on me at the front gate, making me get out of his vehicle, that I was driving because they will not let him drive on base.JA: Are you overseas or stateside?Customer: StatesJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: NO, they are the ones provoking him also. He got called in while I was visiting and told them what a "piece of crap" he was, of course all military talk trash bc I am a prior veteran, but he has no one to turn to.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: NO

I am a career Marine who retired in 1978. I am 81 years old.

I am a career Marine who retired in 1978. I am 81 years old. Our investments and savings are meager. We live off our military pension and social security. Recently, like fools, we invested in an on-line scheme named Powersellerscenter.com. The big money making scheme asked for an investment of $10,995 to join the "team". A week later we received a phone call that to in order to make our investment work for us, we had to invest another $3000+ to find products on-line for us to sell. Without "Doba", we couldn't make it work. About a week later we received another phone call from Progressive Corp. Services that said that we had to incorporate and use their accounting services for our new e-commerce business, which was another $3000 plus $125 to register as a LLC Corp. By now we are in for $15,000 +. After reviewing them on line, they are a sophisticated scam, and good luck with getting a refund. They are not listed with the BBB. The entire investment was never told to us up front. Do we have any recourse? Please help if you can. Thank you. *****
