Responsibilities Required From Social Media Regarding Military Romance Scamming
Scammers, especially Military Romance Scammers are all over social media networks.
These scammers use pictures, names and valor's of men and women who are actively
serving in our military, retired or are deceased. The scammers are aware how highly
Americans think and feel for their military and they use this to pull at the heart
strings of vulnerable men & women.
Working with a retired Colonel from the United States Army whose pictures, name and
children have been used in the scammers story, I have come to realize just what an epidemic
this is. Unfortunately, many of the victims are afraid, ashamed, and embarrassed to come
forward. Many just want to forget about the scam and move on with their lives. That is why
I bring this petition to you.
Due to the overwhelming numbers of fraudulent accounts throughout social media and the
unidentified number of victims, we need to be the voice. Social Media has a great
amount of power, and with power comes an abundance of responsibility.
