The number one question we get day in and day out is if there is a way to let the real soldier being used in a scam that he is a victim as well. Unfortunately, there isn’t a reliable way to track down the soldiers. The time and effort put forth would likely do little good. I feel horrible that the images and names of these brave men are being used for nefarious reasons. Please, continue to share your stories and warn others. The more people we are able to educate on this horrible deed the less profitable it will be for the criminals.
