One of the most common Facebook scams has been to impersonate American military veterans and use their identities to cheat vulnerable women out of their savings. The Pentagon, veterans and victims have tried to stop it, but Facebook has done little to help. THE WEEKLY investigates what happens when these scams are allowed to proliferate, meeting one woman who was swindled out of USD20,000, and the marine whose face was used to help lure her in.
