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.
