The scams often involve carefully worded romantic requests for money from the victim to purchase special laptop computers, international telephones, military leave papers, and transportation fees to be used by the fictitious "deployed Soldier" so their false relationship can continue.The scams include asking the victim to send money, often thousands of dollars at a time, to a third party address.You don’t have to have a long distance relationship unless you choose to have one.Even though the Army may not officially recognize your relationship, your soldier does.Official Support Groups Even as a girlfriend, you can generally still participate in the family readiness group and receive updates as long as your soldier passes along your contact information to the group.You can usually attend meetings and events the same as any wife of a soldier would.
