A scam to solicit money from servicemembers and DoD civilians has been identified. The letter purporting to be from DFAS asks the fiancee of a servicemember to register in "our system," entitling the fianc?to benefits in the event of the servicemember's death. The letter even uses the DFAS logo. DFAS does not send unsolicited email messages with attachments or letters asking you to send money to pay for some benefit. This letter is a typical phishing scam used to obtain personal information and often times, money.
