I know this isn’t going to be the answer you want to hear, and it’s certainly not what I want to tell you. However, I wish to be completely honest with you, so I feel obligated to not give you false hope.

It is likely that this is a scam I'm afraid.

The military scam is very well known at the moment. Usually they ask you to transfer money to them in order to secure their release from the Army. If that hasn't happened at this stage then thats likely to be a good sign.

However, the chances that this is genuine are unfortunately low. The US Army have specifically warned people about this although the UK has not yet followed their example that I know of.

I am sorry but you should certainly not transfer money to him if asked.

I'm sorry this isn't the answer you wanted but it is the position that you face and I have a duty to inform you truthfully.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.
