Scammers targeting the military community have created a network of 50 websites that aim to steal personal information or that advertise care packages and phone cards to troops for exorbitant prices, a cybersecurity firm said in a new report.

The scam has led more than 100 people to complain in an online forum about being duped, said Hank Schless, senior manager at the San Francisco-based Lookout, Inc.

Some pages charged hundreds of dollars in offers for purported phone cards to help family members get in touch with deployed troops.
