Those wishing to join the Naval service are warned there is a scam aimed at exploiting (mainly overseas) applicants.

Individuals making enquiries on social media have been receiving bogus application forms requiring an upfront application fee and offering bogus benefits upon payment.

There are no upfront fees to join the Royal Navy or Royal Marines and overseas applicants should make initial enquiries to confirm eligibility by calling 00 44 1604 640015. UK Applicants should call 08456 07 55 55.
 
Now you tell me. Damn!

I thought being accepted for F-35 pilot training seemed too good to be true.

How do I get my money back?

STC was my fall-back option. The sods even hung on to the B&Q Diamond Card I submitted as proof of ID!

It's actually a scarily easy scam - potential overseas applicants often enquire via Facebook. All the conman needs to do, if they leave their email address visible to all, is send bogus application forms with false promises of free flights, accommodation, etc., upon receipt of an upfront fee.

What I meant was, where do you get the figure of 7 years from? Where is the precedence for this?
 
Yes i am guzzling booze! cheers, I said 7 years simply because if you are sentenced to 7 years you do the full 7 as if you get 6 years then you only do 3, and then you would probably do half that inside and half on tag. They should do 7 years because they have conned potential sailors out of a career in the RN and that affects national security and means less RN servicemen to be called to go to a conflict zone and the ones who do go have to do longer tours away from their families and friends, Plus longer tours means more of a chance of being fatally wounded in action.
 
Dont forget the RN needs these overseas applications because of the lack of UK British born applicants and uk british born recruits failing in training.

You forgot to mention servicewomen which makes your post look silly.

Well, that and a few other things.
