RSN™ Guide: How To Spot Fake United States Military ID Cards

RSN™ Guide: How To Spot Fake United States Military ID Cards

Right Up Front – If Someone Sends You A Photo Of Their ID Card They ARE A Scammer!

That is because it is illegal for United States Military personnel to copy their ID cards. It is that simple!

However, so many people want to understand how to make sure they are fakes that we have created the following.

United States Military ID Cards Are Called “CAC” – Common Access Cards.  The CAC, a “smart” card about the size of a credit card, is the standard identification for active duty uniformed Service personnel, Selected Reserve, U.S. Department of Defence [DoD] civilian employees, and eligible contractor personnel.  It is also the principal card used to enable physical access to buildings and controlled spaces, and it provides access to DoD computer network and systems.

I am so happy I found this site. I am in the centre of being scammed as we speak, by an entire network of scammers. I am from Durban, South Africa, and currently, Mr. Romance is trying to convince me that he and his daughter have been kidnapped in Cape Town, en route to me. I will try to upload all my info. Hope you can catch them. Can I e-mail the information to you? […]

Yay! Thank you for keeping up the fight! Facebook is part of the reason in my opinion on allowing scammers to continue especially after reporting so many they refuse to take down fake accounts. United we stand against scammers! Great job SCARS/RSN
