In other cases that I have been informed of, the request is typically granted and then an outrageous amount of money (in the thousands) is requested to purchase a flight. We have beem talking for quite sometime now and he says he’s deployed to Afghanistan and will be going to iraq for 3months so he will not be able to chat online. They wrote back saying I should subscribe with a fee of 524. Depending on where he is, he may not be able to call very often but it would be very unlikely for it to be completely impossible.This is a scam as well as soldiers do not have to pay for their flights in or out of Iraq or Afghanistan. What I want to know is are there no internet connections in Iraq and is there a cheaper way to call? There’s also no reason why YOU should be paying for it.Is there a way to find out if this person is really in the Army? Also, almost every post in Iraq and Afghanistan has MWR phone lines available where the soldiers can call home at no charge.There is also no reason for you to request for him to get leave. The Army is not going to recognize a leave request from a civilian. In almost all cases, he has access to the internet as well as phones through the MWR in both Iraq and Afghanistan.These Augusta cartridges are easily recognized by the salmon-colored paper and that they are filled with 15 buckshot. These scams where you believe you are dating a soldier are becoming more and more common. Do you think I am being paranoid or now that he has made his decision and picked me. He isn’t going to use me for time off and then blow me off when he gets back to the states.. The thing that sticks out most to me is him asking you to write to request time off for him so he can get married. The Army does not process requests for time off from the girlfriend (or wife for that matter) of a soldier. Some units will not even allow individual time off and the soldier can only have leave when the unit as a whole takes it.therefore they will be using western union for the transaction.I have tried to tell my sister this all sounds like a hoax, but she is falling for this MIKE guy fast. First, the military does not ask civilians (relatives or otherwise) to write to request leave for a soldier. Secondly, there would not be an exchange of money involved with it.

He also mentioned something about registering and then I can request for him to get leave. When soldiers are overseas, there is no reason for other people to be paying for their communication.
This is the first time I have ever done anything like this and I am not sure its real. They make more money when they are deployed than when they are stateside and generally have less expenses.
Do soldiers have to pay BTA , when they flying back to the USA when they retiring?
