Does it cost a US army soldier anything to take leave while deployed?
NO: There are no American troops in Syria. If you are replaced to go home, the service does that, you do not have to find someone to substitute for you or pay for a replacement, you get on the plane and go back to your permanent base.There is a widespread scam perpetrated by people in West Africa, primarily in Ghana and Nigeria. They meet women on dating websites like Hangouts, texting because he is in a “dangerous place” doing “secret missions” and so can’t call or Skype either because of secrecy or the expense, since he has “no access to funds while he is deployed”. He may tell you he has a child in the US and his wife is dead or has run off with another man…his mother or father needs an operation, he needs to pay to get out of Nigeria, out of the service and come and join you…..the stories are endless but the results are always the same. You send money, gift cards, iPhones and many other things. If he hasn’t yet he will tell you soon that he has fallen in love with you, wants to come to be with you but the money situation is preventing that, so if you’ll help him he can pay you back when he sees you. He may send you pictures downloaded from Facebook or other places.In doing so you may have given him various pieces that when put together give him access to your bank account and the ability to open charge accounts to get more things which he can sell in the marketplace or on the Nigerian version of Craig’s list. I know this because I have been telling people about it on Quora for some time and someone in my family experienced it directly.Here are a couple of quick tests you can do.Ask him to send you on his military email account a list of what he needs from you…it probably won’t happen,(“security”), but if it does the email address should end with @ mail.mil . This goes through secure servers so no security problems. Everybody in the military has one, some use it everyday. Won’t do it? Doesn’t have one [his unit is so top secret they can’t use that]? Scammer.Ask for his APO address( you have some phone cards, cookies etc you want to send) Here’s what an APO address should look like.Name: PFC Jack Lyon Address 1: 23rd Battalion Address 2: Unit 1234, Box 56789 Country: United States City: APO State: AP Zip/Postal Code: 96522-1215 no APO address? “security” again? He’s not real.Here are some websites that will give you more information:Can You Spot the Scammer?Army investigators warn public about romance scamsOnline romance scamsWhen an Online Boyfriend Is a Scam ArtistSgt. Bobby Martins - US ARMY in IRAQDo you pay for a next of kin form in the US military and stamps?and here is what another woman said about her experience:“...even took selfies & sent to me as well as called me. However, the 1st time he asked for a mere $50 iTune card was a red flag. Then after messaging for 3 days, a declaration of love. That really sent up the flag. Once I got it across to him that I wasn’t sending $700 so he could come home to be with me, $100 Amazon cards or an iphone to him, he quickly blocked me on Hangouts. BTW he said Hangouts was more private & less cost. You bet it is…that way you can’t see all the other people he’s trying to con money from. “So you’re dealing with a scammer, here’s what I would do. Don’t text him and curse him out. Some of them get a perverse pleasure out of your pain. Just block him and if you have sent money with a bank transfer, check with your bank to make sure no foreign withdrawals can be made without your approval or have already been made.Better a broken heart than a broken heart and an empty bank account. What you want, [ romance etc] will never happen. Your heart’s in the right place just with the wrong “man”.
