Scammers are using fake AKO address to hoodwink soldiers' families

Be careful!

A scam using a fake AKO site is targeting families of deployed soldiers.

The families receive emails from a fake AKO site asking the family member to login. Once in the site, all the information from their computer is downloaded into a server.

An example of emails from the fake site read with the last name first, rather than the other way around.

Be wary of any email address that looks suspicious. Just because it has us.army.mil in the address, doesn't necessarily mean it is from a legitimate source.
