These scammers are praying on the hearts of the civilians that care so much for our troops fighting for us overseas, and they feel like they are helping out by helping someone in the Military.One email I read was supposedly from a Soldiers Chain of Command, and told the woman that he had been Wounded In Action and evacuated to a hospital in the United Kingdom.Attached with this email is the Policy and Instructions for Leave Request,if you agree with the terms for his leave.please print it out, endorse and send it back to us via email.” This is the form he sent: THIS IS A FAKE FORM NOT AN OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT DOCUMENT Another document attached to the email, these are listed as instructions, again another fake form.First, no one can sign for a Military personnel to go on leave except the Chain of Command.If they are coming home from overseas on emergency leave, from a Combat Zone, as a lot of the scammer’s are saying, they would not have to pay to come home.We have gotten a lot of emails lately asking us about Military members overseas asking for cash from civilians, mainly women, to come home for leave from Afghanistan or telling the women that they have a very sick child that they need to come home and see.
Here is a quote from one of the emails: “Dear mam There is no problem with the form one of the two Us Army logo is a seal and after you fill it and the approval is been send to you the other seal will be put on the form.
Thanks for your understanding Us Army Vacation office” There is no such thing as the US Army Vacation office!
Here is another email from this address: USA kabul “We are sorry to inform you that Major Aaron Perez has been injured in an attack on friday .
He has been flown to a Military hospital in the United Kingdom.
It is normal protocol that we must inform Major Aaron Perez family the situation of things here.
