FORT GEORGE G. MEADE, Md. -- Defense Finance and Accounting Service warns of email scams targeting military members, military retirees, and civilian employees.
Scammers have even gone so far as to "spoof" DFAS email addresses so that the recipients would think it was actually coming from DFAS personnel. In a spoofing email, the scammer makes it appear that the message is coming from a legitimate source. This is to try to lure the reader into believing it's genuine.
DFAS officials are developing pages on their website to highlight their official email policy, examples of scam emails and law enforcement agencies that can initiate an investigation.
"As long as you keep your login credentials private and to yourself, then your account is pretty much assured a fairly decent amount of security.
