Military stories from past to present, both wars.

January 3rd, 2011 Posted in The SandGram v1.0

JP over at just posted a great piece on their site about Military scammers better beware, California‘s Online Impersonation Law takes effect today (makes impersonation a crime)

 This is a problem that has plagued a few folks online and one of my MilBlog buddies as well when some scammers set his name up in a dating database looking for love and money.  One thing you can do to combat this, is set up a Google Alert on your name so that it will send you a message when your name pops up online somewhere (think of it as cheap insurance fraud alert).  This is how CJ Grisham was able to head off a potentially aggravating situation a few months ago.  I’m going to write to my Congressman in DC to see if this type thing could go national and I encourage you all to do the same.  Even if some dipsh** Federal Judge in CO says that it’s your right to lie and claim you a Vet and Hero, maybe this can backdoor the system to allow the Justice Dept to go after these scammer’s and posers. 

Just a thought as we bring in this New Year!!

Semper Fi,
