Dating an officer in military
Grey has made it a personal crusade to warn the public about the online scams that are using men in uniform as bait to reel in women who hand over cash in the name of love. S., ranging in age from late 30s to late 70s, Grey says, and some are highly educated.
“We literally get hundreds of phone calls, daily, worldwide,” spokesman Chris Grey says.
My policy requires that all members of this organization to conduct themselves in a manner that is professional at all times.
We will actively seek ways to foster a positive and supportive working environment that respects the differences in position, rank, and grade.
This recognition of authority is evidenced by observance and enforcement of the military courtesies and customs, which have traditionally defined proper senior-subordinate relationships.
Dating is neither fraternization nor misconduct when it occurs between consenting members that are equal or nearly equal in rank and when neither has positional authority over the other.
The 2,600-person command Grey serves is in Quantico, Va., and it investigates felonies in which Army personnel are victims or perpetrators.
Thus it lacks jurisdiction to probe the barrage of incoming calls, since the service personnel are not victimized beyond having their names and photos misappropriated.
The largest loss he’s seen involved a woman taken for about 0,000.
“It’s heartbreaking listening to these stories,” he says.
