BEWARE OF ONLINE SCAMS!
U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command (CID) receives hundreds of reports a month from individuals who have fallen victim to a scam perpetrated by a person impersonating a U.S. Soldier online.
Victims of these “romance scams” report they became involved in an online relationship with someone they believed to be a U.S. Soldier who then began asking for money for various false service-related needs. Victims of these scams can lose tens of thousands of dollars and face a slim likelihood of recovering any of it.

There are times when the names and images of U.S. Army Reserve leadership have been used to fraudulently victimize or scam well-meaning people.
You will NEVER receive a personal friend request, or a request for money, from any of the U.S. Army Reserve leadership. If you are talking to someone claiming to be a current or past general officer or Command Sergeants Major from the U.S. Army Reserve leadership team on any social media platform, you are talking to an impostor.
Our social media team reports impostor accounts for removal, but we need your assistance.
