They befriend them using stolen photos of American Soldiers, some are even using photos of our KIAs.
They purposely target women that have no idea how the armed services works, and they spend months talking to them and making them believe they are in love.
The most common scam is to tell these women that they are widowed, and that they were injured and need money to help pay doctors bills.
They use a network of other scammers to help build on this lie until the women send them money or other items.
We have seen so many, that it is very easy for us to pick up on the fake profiles.
