Could be a virus on their computers, or a toolbar or somesuch that inserts links.

Are there existing links or other keywords in the body of the text where these links end up appearing?

It is not likely that we can do much without a link to a page or pages with the problem.  All you are going to get are guesses.  My best guess is that the problem is on the client side and there is nothing you can do except advise the user to run an AV scan.

2 possibilities:

1. Malicious code injected into your website. Restore your entire site from backup if you can, and see if that fixes the problem. If you don't have a backup, look at the dates on the files and see if they match up with when you changed them. If not, edit the files and make sure you know what everything in them does.

2. Malicious software on the client computers. Nothing you can do about that. They need to improve their security!

I do have one laptop that they can see it on in Iraq, I am waiting to do a remote session with them to see what i can see online

Not sure of the relevance. If your web files have been tampered with, then restore them from a backup. If they haven't, then the clients need to check their own systems and security. This clearly looks like some form of MalWare
