Joint Base Scam.

Joint Base Uniform Equipt Center in North Hanover NJ or Wrightstown, NJ is NOT affiliated with the military and is a privately owned scam operation run by Carmine L Annunziata a wanted fugitive career criminal who pretends to be a US Army Major. But Carmine Annunziata has NEVER BEEN IN THE MILITARY. His partner Maria L Garcia is in the US Army Reserves and his other partner Paddy J Matera is a former NY Corrections Officer but tells people he is an NYPD officer. Real US Soldiers should BEWARE of this SCAM. These scammers will try to gain access to your Military ID's and Credit Cards. Do not give these scammers any of your personal information either. If you have been scammed by these shameless crooks report them to the police immediately.
