(KMOV) – Scammers have been using military photos to trick unsuspecting women on dating websites into giving them money.

The scam artists use pictures of soldiers and post them as their own. Once they convince the women to trust them, they ask for money. The military says it gets a lot of complaints about scammers swiping official military photos and using them to create dating profiles.

One military blogger says the scammers go as far as spoofing military email addresses to make their stories believable.

The military says if you think you’ve been scammed, contact the Secret Service and report the incident.
