The website "www.usmilitarybenifit.org" is a fake United States Army website designed to steal soldiers' Army Knowledge Online, or AKO, email accounts and passwords. The website is part of a phishing scam, impersonating the Army's legitimate website "myarmybenefits.us.army.mil". Military websites have ".mil" at the end of their names. So, Army personnel should never sign into a website with their military usernames and passwords, if it doesn't end with ".mil".

The Army’s Criminal Investigation Command is warning all military personnel to stay clear of this fake website.

A statement from the Army's website about the fake website:

"The Army’s Criminal Investigation Command is warning about a new website scam in which criminals are attempting to take advantage of soldiers and their families.

The ‘My Army Benefits" website at http://www.usmilitarybenifit  .org is not an official website, officials said, and is neither affiliated with nor endorsed in any way by the United States Army. The Army does, however, have an official website called ‘MyArmyBenefits’ at http://myarmybenefits.us.army.mil that is operated by the service's Retirement Services Office.

The primary purpose of the fraudulent site is to collect soldiers' Army Knowledge Online, or AKO, email accounts and passwords, officials said. It also makes the false claim that the U.S. military has granted access to unclaimed and accumulated benefits for active duty soldiers, and that benefits not claimed within the stipulated period will be available for claims after 60 months.

Criminal Investigation Command officials strongly recommend that soldiers, Army civilians, retirees and family members avoid the website and ignore any information or claims posted on it. They also recommend deleting suspicious or unsolicited emails immediately, without response."
