It is a scam.

Don't waste your time replying, just delete all the emails and those from the supposed soldier you are communicating with.

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.

There is no such thing as someone outside the military requesting leave for someone in the US military. Officers in the US military do not write like West Africans, and besides the West African capitalization style, there is a spelling in there that is used in England, but not in America.

Please post the email addresses of the fake soldier and the fake leave officer, in case anyone else searches for them.
