There is also no reason for you to request for him to get leave. The Army is not going to recognize a leave request from a civilian. In almost all cases, he has access to the internet as well as phones through the MWR in both Iraq and Afghanistan.In other cases that I have been informed of, the request is typically granted and then an outrageous amount of money (in the thousands) is requested to purchase a flight. We have beem talking for quite sometime now and he says he’s deployed to Afghanistan and will be going to iraq for 3months so he will not be able to chat online. They wrote back saying I should subscribe with a fee of 524. Depending on where he is, he may not be able to call very often but it would be very unlikely for it to be completely impossible.
I can not for the life of me , see how this so called sargent would want to give up his life long ambition in the army to be the boyfriend of a woman who he has never personally met. if my thoughts are true, how do i break this news to her. There is no transfer of funds when they go on leave. They will pay for them to travel to any destination they choose. After this, since I had been skeptical for a while, I called her on it and she erupted. Since I called her on the scam, she said I better be careful before I get myself in trouble and that she knows where I live and my child’s name. If I were in your shoes, I would contact the authorities in your area.The only requirement is that they fly back to the combat zone from the same location. You may also contact a CID (Criminal Investigation Division) for the branch of service she was claiming to be.The date line is used to indicate the date the letter was written.However, if your letter is completed over a number of days, use the date it was finished in the date line.This is the first time I have ever done anything like this and I am not sure its real. They make more money when they are deployed than when they are stateside and generally have less expenses.
Is there a way to find out if this person is really in the Army? Also, almost every post in Iraq and Afghanistan has MWR phone lines available where the soldiers can call home at no charge.
Well us girls found out about each other and busted him.. He doesn’t want to talk about where we will go when he gets back.. Just keeps saying we can talk about if and when he gets leave time.. But need to know if this is what the men do for amusement.. Thanks Michelle The entire thing would make me very leery, personally.
I am not sure if this is a scam that the guys pull, to keep themselves busy..
If he wants additional communication capabilities, he can easily afford the cost to do it. I have a few concerns and i need to know if my gut instinct is telling me the right thing, before someone i care for ends up seerioulsy hurt or scammed for money she doesn’t have.
My sister has been speaking with a guy who is in the army and is apparently a sargent.
I don’t know if he is really in love with me or just playing me to get some time off.. He wants me to write a letter to the army requesting time off so we CAN get married..
