Beware - DFAS Scam

We received a message from the the USSOCOM J1 Directorate on a scam going around using DFAS, which if course if the Defense Financial Accounting Service. The message: "I have attached a document that is being circulated throughout Military Installations and email traffic. It is a scam trying to get money from our service members. We already have some members that have paid the money. I need everyone ' s help in getting the word out as soon as possible. As you can see from the attachment they have copied the DFAS logo as well as the Department of Defense logo on the paper so it makes it appear it's coming from DFAS. Please disseminate to all levels. Your assistance is appreciated."

Beware of all correspondance. If in doubt call your local or the nearest Retirement Services Office. The final, dead giveaway on this scam is the the e-mail address.
