Abstract:

Many soldiers assigned overseas are committing the offense of black marketing and ruining their careers. This crime is easy to commit because soldiers succumb to temptations of getting rich quickly and are often ignorant of the law or regulations involved. A review of US Forces Korea regulations governing ration control and buying, selling or transferring duty free goods, helps in establishing ways to reverse this trend. This examination attempts to define black marketing, to profile the black marketer and to develop ways to deter soldiers from committing this offense. It is concluded that strengthened enforcement and modification of regulatory policies or procedures, aggressive criminal investigation, rigorous prosecution and dynamic command information programs, will assist in deterring offenders and lead towards the demise of black marketing.
