I was asked to send a request for the redeployment of a US soldier currently serving in Benin. I am not sure whether he is a honest person or a scammer. After I sent the request to [email protected] the soldier told me that the attorney replied back asking to send more details including a photo of my passport to another email address: [email protected]. What can I risk by sending the photo of the passport? (the photocopy of the page with the relevant information)
If you do not know the soldier/possible scammer, I do not recommend sending any personal information to this "attorney." (And, why, exactly, is YOUR passport information requested?) Yandex is a Russian search engine. Presumably legit attorneys abroad don't use search engine suffixes in their email addresses any more than a legitimate attorney would use gmail.com as their professional address. If I were you, I would walk away from whatever this is.
