Most of these fake profiles have several things that should stick out: 1. If they ask for items(care packages) they ask for you to send them to overseas addresses that are not affiliated with the Military, Nigeria etc.
They will have very few friends on the profile, of which most will be women or other fake profiles. Most of the posts will be short sentences, with broken English and misspelled words. They will not have many photos, and the uniform name tapes may not match the profile name. Military members almost always have other friends on their profile that are also Military, these fakes will not have any. The forms they are sending to these people are very convincing, especially if you are not familiar with the military and the way leave works.
Even when it worked as it was supposed to, it was a very weird way to ask anyone to live.
They also like to tell people that they are widowed and caring for the child/children alone.
The private case is being brought by General Abdul-Wahid Shannan ar-Ribat, former chief of staff of the Iraqi army.
He wants the former Labour prime minister to be convicted of the crime of 'aggression' for taking part, alongside the US, in the invasion of his country under the false pretext that Saddam Hussein's regime harboured weapons of mass destruction.
Britain's top law officer has intervened to try to stop an attempt to haul Tony Blair to court over the Iraq War.
Attorney General Jeremy Wright has formally asked for the bid to prosecute Mr Blair to be rejected.
Mr Ribat, who is now living in exile, also wants then foreign secretary Jack Straw and Lord Goldsmith, the attorney general at the time, to be tried in a British court.
