With over ONE BILLION (more than 1,000,000,000) fake identities online there are plenty of scammers to go around. 1 Billion is AFTER the social media companies delete nearly 1 billion a year! That is how big this all is! And there are nearly a million new victims a year. You are far from being alone in this.

What To Do About Fake Soldiers Or Soldier Scams?
Scammers around the world have been stealing the identities and photos of United States military personnel for more than a decade. These are used by scammers because of the immediate trust these add to online fraud and confidence games of African-style romance scams in scamming women and men.
