Scams Artists from China Target Unwitting Security Clearance Applicants

Originally published at:

I have noticed an uptick in the number of Defense Office of Hearing an Appeals (DOHA) cases involving security clearance applicants who unwittingly fell for scams involving foreign nationals from China. How does this happen? Here are two actual DOHA case scenarios: This security clearance applicant meets a Chinese woman online in 2018, becomes smitten, they exchange…

Do we know if these individuals were targeted specifically because they had applied for clearances? If so that would be especially troubling.

There are lots of internet scams out there. Which reminds me I have to contact Prince Naeem, he still has not replied even though I sent him the bitcoin.

:rofl: :joy: :grin:


That’s why I operate exclusively in Dogecoin… :stuck_out_tongue:
