Most of these fake profiles have several things that should stick out: 1. If they ask for items(care packages) they ask for you to send them to overseas addresses that are not affiliated with the Military, Nigeria etc.
They will have very few friends on the profile, of which most will be women or other fake profiles. Most of the posts will be short sentences, with broken English and misspelled words. They will not have many photos, and the uniform name tapes may not match the profile name. Military members almost always have other friends on their profile that are also Military, these fakes will not have any. The forms they are sending to these people are very convincing, especially if you are not familiar with the military and the way leave works.

When we would go out with a bunch of guys from his unit and people would ask what they did, they simply replied they were in the Army. They’re known as “quiet professionals” for a reason. He has been deployed for two years, has been denied leave time and will not be coming home any time soon therefore you won’t be able to meet. He is on a top secret mission in a country other than Iraq or Afghanistan (or even in Iraq or Afghanistan – it’s all lies).If there were soldiers being denied leave after being overseas for years at a time, it would be ALL over the news. Now, we certainly do have troops in other countries.The number of wars and border conflicts in which the IDF has been involved in its short history makes it one of the most battle-trained armed forces in the world.While originally the IDF operated on three fronts—against Lebanon and Syria in the north, Jordan and Iraq in the east, and Egypt in the south—after the 1979 Egyptian–Israeli Peace Treaty, it has concentrated its activities in southern Lebanon and the Palestinian Territories, including the First and the Second Intifada.
