SPRINGFIELD, IL (AP) - The Illinois National Guard says the spouses of deployed service members have been the target of a recent e-mail scam.

The guard said in a Wednesday news release that the fraudulent e-mails are seeking to defraud the spouses of more than $1,000. The e-mails claim to be from a deployed service member who needs money before the service member can travel for temporary leave.

The Illinois National Guard says the e-mails are a scam and they are under investigation.
