No, Zoosk is only asking U.S. Military Personnel and Reservists to verify their service. A common aspect of a military romance scam is taking on the identity of a member of the U.S. military who is either deployed overseas or outside of the victim’s general area. This provides the scammer with a sympathetic excuse about why they can’t meet in person and may need help or money. Because veterans are not typically used as part of these types of scams, we’re not asking them to verify their service.
