USFK Issues Warning About Social Media Imposters of Commander

SEOUL — The U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) has issued a cautionary statement about imposters posing as its commander on social media platforms. The warning, disseminated via the USFK's Facebook page, alerts the community about individuals fraudulently using Gen. Paul LaCamera's name and likeness to establish contact. The USFK emphasized the risk of impersonation, advising that Gen.

According to Yonhap News Agency, LaCamera does not maintain a personal Facebook account and urging the public to report any dubious interactions purportedly under his identity. The alert was accompanied by visuals demonstrating examples of such deceptive profiles, including one depicting Gen. LaCamera in a handshake with former South Korean Defense Minister Jeong Kyeong-doo, according to the USFK. The statement underscores the ongoing concerns over online scams and the misuse of high-profile military personnel's identities to mislead and exploit users within the USFK community.
