With San Antonio being military city there is a new scam you should know about.

Con men have apparently discovered that impersonating military servicemen online is a particularly effective method of getting their hands on your cash. They are creating bogus dating and social networking profiles to scam people out of money.

It's a growing problem and everyone from high ranking officials like General Petraeus to soldiers killed in action are being impersonated.

The warning as always is that you should be careful who you communicate with online.
