San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 04, 2014
MilitaryRecordsLookup.com is preparing an anti-scam guide about why and how people lie about their military histories, the company reported today.
“While our nation's heroes should absolutely be recognized for their service, there are some less-than honest people out there who use fake military histories for their own game,” a MilitaryRecordsLookup.com spokesman said. “We believe that these scam artists should be stopped from disrespecting the armed forces.”
The company is compiling the guide at the request of customers, who were responding to a mention on the MilitaryRecordsLookup.com website regarding the fact that people do lie about their military service and the reasons they were discharged.
“Many people think that as long as they don't see the term 'court-martial,' the person they're checking out served with honor,” he said. “But because military jargon can be complicated and there are many different levels of service, it can be easy to become a victim of a scam when someone is not as forthcoming as they should be.”
The guide will include real-world definitions of medals and discharge status, he said. It will also detail all the ways people try to pull a scam on unsuspecting victims when it comes to false military histories.
“Whether it's in the online dating world or trying to get a job, these scam artists rely on the ignorance of their victims,” he said. “But knowledge is power, and we are confident our guide will give our customers that power.”
