No one is immune from scams, and that includes our nation’s veterans. Scammers specifically target veterans, assuming they have a regular stream of income from VA benefits. Scams can involve going after pension or disability benefits, fake requests for personal information, charity scams, fake rebate offers, and more. It is important that you stay vigilant. Here are a few warning signs to be aware of in case you encounter a potential scammer.
