The simple answer is no. No one is being drafted for WWIII in the US just yet. But people received text messages saying that they were drafted – the United States Army warns that the message is fake.
On Tuesday, the Army has put out a news bulleting warning people of fraudulent text messages from so called “recruiters”. Some messages even mentioned a local recruiting office for “immediate departure to Iran”. Others even sent threats, saying that if the person does not respond, they will “be fined and sent to jail for minimum 6 years”.
“U.S. Army Recruiting Command has received multiple calls and emails about these fake text messages and wants to ensure Americans understand these texts are false and were not initiated by this command or the U.S. Army,” the bulletin said.
