Recently these scams have evolved into Impersonation Fraud affecting U.S. Soldiers. Scam artists in these instances search the internet for photographs of U.S. Soldier, and then use these photographs in emails or on social/dating sites to lure unsuspecting citizens into providing money to them for such reasons as transportation costs, communication fees, marriage, processing and medical fees.
The U.S. has established numerous task force organizations to deal with this growing epidemic; unfortunately, the personnel committing these scams are utilizing untraceable email addresses, routing accounts through numerous locations around the world and utilizing pay per hour Internet Cyber cafes, which often times maintain no accountability of use. The ability of law enforcement to identify these perpetrators and close down their operations is very limited. Unfortunately, as is the situation in most cases, as soon as one incident is resolved, the criminals are finding another means of attack.
