Army dating schwul online dating
Nine times out of ten, they “met” their soldier on a social networking site, such as Facebook, or an online dating site.
********** UPDATE: Two women were prosecuted for receiving over one million dollars from 374 people in these scams! Since starting the website in 2004, I have received many emails from people who believe they are dating a soldier when, in most cases, they actually are not.
It's possible, and that's what makes such relationships inappropriate in the Army.
Some relationships between certain categories of soldiers, such as non-commissioned officers and enlisted personnel, are also prohibited under the Army's fraternization policy.
Despite being happily married for 13 years, Ray Chandler is one of the world’s most eligible bachelors.
Single women can find him on the dating site Date Me Mate Me.com, where he confesses to being, “Very new to this dating thing and am looking to see where this takes me.” At Fish Meet Fish.com, under the username Real Chandler, he explains, “I would love my first date to be something special.” At Girls Datefor Free.com, Chandler describes himself as being 6-2 and weighing 158 pounds.
Relationships of the same and opposite genders are prohibited if they fall into any of the following categories: Such relationships don't have to be sexual in nature to be prohibited.
“We’ve even seen instances where the perpetrators are asking the victims for money to ‘purchase leave papers’ from the Army, or help pay for their flight home so they can leave the war zone,” Grey said.
Then the supposed CO sends back a letter asking for money to connect a phone line or some other complete lie. He says one of the following…parents died, his wife died in his arms, his wife was killed in a car accident along with all of his children, his children are orphaned and living in some remote location, or he was orphaned……all LIES. And I mean if this was for real and that kind of luck follows him, why do you want to be with him? He says he doesn’t have a mailing address because either he is in a classified unit or his position changes so often.
Even in special operations, he’ll have an APO address.
“We are seeing a number of scams being perpetrated on the Internet, especially on social, dating-type websites where females are the main target,” said Chris Grey, Army CID’s spokesman. Victims of these scams have been duped to send money, often thousands of dollars at a time, to a third-party address so the phone or laptop can be purchased for the soldier.
Army Criminal Investigation Command has received frequent reports of scams involving individuals pretending to be U. soldiers, who get romantically involved on the Internet with female victims and then steal their money. The scams often involve requests for money from the victim to purchase laptops, international phones and transportation fees to be used by the “deployed soldier,” so their fictitious relationship can continue.
