1) No
2) No
3) No
4) different scammers, different scams
5) see this article from the US army http://www.cid.army.mil/documents/Looko ... Scams2.pdf
6) There are very few soldiers in Nigeria. Those that are there are fighting Boka Harem and very likely can not often communicate with others.

There is a very good article here : viewtopic.php?f=13&t=6527 that describes the fake soldier romance scammer. read it and all of your questions will be answered.

Please turn off your CAPS LOCK when posting. :smile: :mrgreen:

1) DO REAL SOLDIER NEED TO PAY TO GET THERE MONEY SO THERE GET IT WHEN THERE ON LEAVE ? No, Soldier have access to their money. They do not need anyone to send them money.

2) DO THERE NEED TO PAY FOR THERE LEAVE LIKE LEAVEPASS OR MONEY TRANCFER ? No, Soldier get free leave. It part of their employment package. No one can request it for the soldier. Only the soldier can request it through his chain of Command. No one speaks with his chain of command but the soldier only. No wife, children, mother or internet girlfriend will ever communicate with the chain of command.

3) DO THERE HAVE AGENTS TO DO THERE MONEY TRANCFER IN NIGERIA ? No. This is something made up by scammers.

4) WHY THERE WANT TO COME TO THE WOMAN FIRST AND THEN GO HOME USA TO GET MARRIED ? It is a scam. The scammer is looking for lonely women to steal their money. He is already home in Nigeria.

5)WHAT IS USA ARMY OR USA GOVERMENT DOING ABOUT THE SCAMMERS ? Read here>> http://www.army.mil/article/130861/Army ... nce_scams/

6) WHAT DO SO CALLED USA SOLDIERS IN NIGERIA ? There are no USA Soldiers in Nigeria. Only scammers pretending to be soldiers.

7)HOW DO THE SO CALLED USA SOLDIERS CAN GET HOLD ON SOME ONES EMAIL ADDRESS IF THERE NOT ON ANY DATING OR CHAT SIDE ? Sometimes from past victims or mail list.

Please read here about Military Scammers>> viewtopic.php?f=13&t=6527

Hillbilly and Bryon have both done an excellent job of answering your questions. For the sake of anyone reading this who is completely unfamiliar with these scams, I will add a little more detail to a few of the answers.

4) They say they want to come to the lady first because they expect that she will be more willing to send money if they are coming to see her than if they say they are going to USA.
As Bryon said, neither is true. They are not coming to see the lady, and they are not going to USA. They are already at home in Nigeria (or in some cases another country like Ghana or Malaysia) and they are not leaving there.

6) There are no units or troops in Nigeria. As Hillbilly stated, there are a few people from the US military who may still be there supporting the effort to fight Boko Haram, but they are on highly confidential missions, and will NOT be allowed to be on dating sites or meeting strangers on Facebook. Any one who tells you that he is an American soldier stationed in Nigeria is a liar and a thief.

7) Unfortunately, because you were scammed in the past, you will continue to be a target for scammers in the future. Sometimes the same scammer will try to approach you again using a new name, new photos, and an updated story, while other times he will share or sell your information to other scammers. Either way, the sad reality i that anyone who has once been a victim to these scammers will find herself to be a target over and over again.

#232136 by AlanJones Fri Dec 26, 2014 7:59 am
The best advice you can give her is to stop all communication with the scammer. Don't give any explanations, don't accuse him of being a scammer, just stop replying and block his emails. All the time your friend is communicating with the scammer, he will see a chance to steal from her and will use whatever threats he thinks will work best to get her to send him money.

And please, as Dotti said, encourage her to visit here herself. She doesn't need to post, she can PM one of the support team and we will help her.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

Real lawyers do not use free email addresses ( such as gmail, hotmail, lawyer.com, usa.com or dozens of other domains). Then she must look to see if it is a real lawyer, or if it is impersonating a real one. ( I'd guarantee it is an impersonation). But here is the link for the Nigerian Bar association : http://www.nigerianbar.org.ng/

See if this "lawyer" can be found there, and if it not a free email address it comes from. See this article about free email domains that don't always look like free ones : http://www.scam-email-addresses.tk/

First of all, Ghost. Your friend is talking to a scammer(s), not real military personnel. Scammers scam because they are criminals and find it easier to steal money from someone else, rather than work a legitimate job to begin with. scammers are scum, they will steal the battery from someone with a pacemaker on their heart if they think they can make money on the sale of it, then leave that person for dead.

No real person in the military would ask their partner for anything, its taught to them (more like drilled into them) to be self sufficient.

The military does not charge for retirement. You've asked a question with a lot of variables in it. So here is an official page that you can fill in those variables and find out the answer for yourself.

http://myarmybenefits.us.army.mil/Home/ ... l?serv=148

The short answer is, there is no difference in how the pay will be received. It will still be monthly pay. But the amount may change depending on the variables in the equation.
