Impersonation Fraud/Romance Scams

IC3If you feel you have been scammed by a person claiming to be a U.S. Soldier, contact the FBI Internet Crime Complaint Center and the Federal Trade Commission.


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. Soldiers, and then use these photographs in emails or on social media/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.

  • - Seek medical care as soon as possible. Even if you do not have any visible physical injuries, you may be at risk of becoming pregnant or acquiring a sexually transmitted disease. Ask the healthcare provider to conduct a Sexual Assault Forensic Examination (SAFE) to preserve forensic evidence. If you suspect you had been drugged, request that a urine sample be collected.
  • - Preserve all evidence of the assault. Do not bathe, wash your hands, eat or drink or brush your teeth. Do not clean or straighten up the crime scene.
  • - Write down or record by any other means all the details you can recall about the assault and your assailant.
