Season 2, Episode 16: Have you seen those handsome soldiers, airmen, and sailors popping up in your Facebook friends requests? This week Stand Up & Speak Up with Debby Montgomery Johnson and guest host, Dr. Tim McGuinness, Founder of The Society of Citizens Against Relationship Scams (SCARS) and Liz Souhrada, Liason to SCARS and Army Criminal Investigation Division, discuss the “How and Why” scammers impersonate military personnel and rob relationship victims out of their life savings and sometimes, their lives.

How about on dating sites or gaming sites? They’re “in the military and have to be trustworthy, honest, and wanting to get home on leave but just need a little extra money to get there. Maybe they are a doctor on a peacekeeping mission in Afghanistan.” DO NOT BELIEVE THEM…listen to today’s show and find out what’s really going on and why they are doing it. As a Veteran this is unacceptable to me – I feel it’s stolen valor and the scammers MUST be stopped – and the only way that will happen is if we STOP believing their stories. Stand Up & Speak Up shares this important message and want you to Beware and Be Aware!
