There is a new website scam in which criminals are attempting to take advantage of soldiers and their families.
Better Business Bureau Military Line and U.S. Army’s Criminal Investigation Command are warning soldiers and their families about the website usmilitarybenifit.org. The BBB says the site is designed to “collect soldiers’ Army Knowledge Online, email accounts and passwords.”
According to investigators, the site also falsely claims that "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."
The website is not affiliated or endorsed by the U.S. Army. . The Army's official website is "MyArmyBenefits" at myarmybenefits.us.army.mil.
