Marisa wrote:Several reasons why "military scams", as we call them, are so popular. First of all, psychological reasons. In many parts of the world, especially in the US and UK, soldiers seem to have a lot of advance trust. Serving their country, aura of danger, community work, making their families proud. People see them as defenders and trust them more than others. And of course there are also practical reasons: the typical scammers excuses as to why they cannot call or disappear from time to time make more sense with military, because of the security, on duty, cannot leave duty, etc... Also, soldiers are possibly "good" for scammers, since the helmet and stuff makes their faces more obscure, they can just expand their galleries easier if all pictures are in combat outfit anyway. They can pile many different military people in one gallery and say this is all "him". Many people don't know enough about ranks, so cannot tell the difference.
Marisa wrote:There are no specific tips for military, but generally, if they have a facebook, or on any other social network or personal page, and know their details or pictures are used in scams, they should warn people, post warnings that their pictures are stolen and abused by scammers, place a link to Romancescam site. Anything that helps raise public awareness is a big help for everybody.
