That is a scam. All e-mail address of people in the US military end in .mil. If someone claims to be in the US military and cannot give an address ending in .mil, he is lying; cease all communication with him. Please post the address he used.

It is a 100% guaranteed scam. The man you are communicating with is likely a young West African man, probably more than half the age of the man he is pretending to be.
Also, civilians (or anybody but the soldier in question) cannot apply for leave, under any circumstances. Nor is leave paid for by anybody; it is earned by time served in the military.
Scams like this rely on people's presumed ignorance of how the military functions, as it is very much an internal, closed-off institution to civilians.

Hope this helps.

Hi Sherrmay, that is the hard part about being scammed. The scammers seem so nice and caring. They give us great conversations and loving care. Then they start asking for money and the love and care turns into a nightmare. Scammers are professional liars. This is all they do. Their job is to lie to their victims and get them to send money. That is it. Mine acted like a businessman, traveling to Malaysia. I was so excited to think of him coming home to me, as I am sure you were happy to think of this soldier coming to you. It will never happen. It was all done for the money.
Please don't tell this scammer you know the truth. After this long, even though your head told you something is wrong, your heart can still be pulled back. Stop contact. It is hard. You've gotten used to this words of love, wanting to see him. That will stop. You will feel sad, lonely, mad that someone could do this to you. Just remember, no matter what happened before, you were smart enough to come here and check things out. You stopped before he could steal your money. And now you get to stop him from further damaging your heart.
