Scammers set up this website called "My Army Benefits" at usmilitarybenifit.org.It's offline now but was designed to "collect soldiers' Army Knowledge Online, email accounts and passwords." But the website was not affiliated or endorsed by the U.S.Army. This is the Army's official website myarmybenefits.us.army .mil.And it's those last three letters of the address you need to take note of.SHANNON NELSON/BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU 19:06:24-33 Any time you're contacted by the military it should have the .mil suffix on the website so if it's a .org .com that's always a big red flag. 31 so just take your time and really think about it. The site also claimed "the U.S. military has granted access to unclaimed and accumulated benefits for active duty soldiers, and that benefits not claimed within the stipulated period will be available for claims after 60 months," according to BBB investigators.That's false.The BBB says websites like these come and go quickly, but others pop up in their place. That's why they encourage Service personnel, family members and veterans to be especially alert.SHANNON NELSON/BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU 19:09:11-24 Any time you give out your social security number date of birth drivers license information which I think this website was asking for you're subjecting yourself to not only immediate identity theft but down the road. 3 If you or someone you know has received correspondence from the My Army benefits website or provided information through it the BBB offers this advice: TAKE PRE-PRO:7 Do not log in to the website;7 Do not respond to any emails;7 Stop all contact if you have previously responded to any emails; and7 Immediately contact your local information assurance office if you accessed the website from a government computer or system. 3 3 Kumasi, besides the last three letters of the website address .what other red flags should you look for, to see if the website may be fraudulent?KUMASI ANSWER: Other red flags include unsolicited emails or text messages; spelling, punctuation and grammar errors; requests for private information such as email addresses or passwords.
