Positively Horrible!

Apparently there is a new scam going on where someone pretending to be the Red Cross calls the wife of a deployed service member in Iraq. They notify the wife that the husband has been hurt and has been sent to Germany for treatment, but that he cannot receive treatment until the paperwork is correct. They then ask to verify the service-member's name and social security number....and boom! Their identity is stolen.

Hopefully, no one has fallen for this yet.....the notification system is not according to regulation, nor is the procedure for getting treatment. But the fact that someone is out there trying this, is sick.
