Said Chandler’s wife, Jeanne: “We heard about one lady, the guy was impersonating Gen. She sold her house because she was going to go live in the general’s house and sent the scammer the money.” While her husband served as sergeant major of the Army, Jeanne became adept at finding fake accounts.
She would punch in a few search terms, see what popped up and then try to get the bogus pages taken down.
Chandler said a woman in Poland went so far as to find the address of one of his adult sons and send an irate letter.
“We got the Army G-2 intelligence folks to get in contact with the Polish Embassy,” Chandler said.
“It was satisfying in that I knew there would be a result, so that scammer’s not victimizing anybody,” she said.
“It was like being a private eye.” But like a pernicious weed, every time an account is closed, more spring up in its place.
It was just such a picture that a reader of mine I’m calling Dede responded to when she saw it on in August. Using the images — and, often, real biographical information — they create fictitious profiles and prey on women. Although these cases do not involve CID — military personnel are not the scammers or the victims — Grey has taken it upon himself to spread the word. “I don’t want people to think a fellow service person is scamming them out of money.” The scammers typically work in teams and have different ways to extract their filthy lucre.
As I outlined in two previous columns, Dede communicated via e-mail and text message for five months with a person who went by the name Mark Handle before he asked her for ,000 to ship a box of diamonds from London. By doing a reverse image search, I found the real person in the photo: Raymond Chandler III, who recently stepped down as sergeant major of the Army. “I’ve talked to people who’ve given up to ,000 and never met the person,” said Chris Grey of the U. Some, like Dede’s, ask for money to ship something.

“They had to go physically to her and tell her to stop.” Chandler said he was concerned because at the time he was on the hit list of an al-Qaeda splinter group.
If a brokenhearted Polish woman could find his son, well, that was worrying.
