11 Apr 2012: Beware of Scam Letter. Several sources, including Military.com, are reporting:
"A letter is making the circuit purporting to be from the Defense Finance Accounting Service (DFAS) asking military member's fiancées to register in the system entitling them to benefits in the event of the member's death. All for only a $350 fee. This is not a genuine DFAS letter -- it is a scam. The letter is a typical scam phishers use to try and obtain your personal information and, in this case, money. DFAS will never send unsolicited e-mail messages with attachments"
