VA Issues Fraud Alert

December 02, 2013

Veterans should be aware of a marketing scam targeting callers trying to reach the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) National Call Center or GI Bill Call Center. A marketing company has established two fraudulent numbers that differ from the two official VA call center numbers by one digit. If the fraudulent number is dialed by mistake, the answering party will offer a gift card and try to obtain personal and financial information, including credit card information, from the caller. The answering party may even transfer the caller to the VA after the caller's information is obtained. The numbers to be avoided are: 800-872-1000 (the VA National Call Center number is 800-827-1000) and 888-442-4511 (the VA GI Bill Call Center number is 888-442-4551).

VA has notified law enforcement authorities to address this situation.

Will Rogers never met Barack Obama. He would not like Obama.

I hate liberals. Liberalism is a disease that causes severe brain damage after it tries to suck knowledge and history out of yours.

People that prey on the weak and the young and elderly and such really are the bottom of the barrel...no doubt all are Obama's people...

Find them, hurt them...make them go away.
Irrumabo!  GOP? - Nope. No more. They made their bed, now let them die in it.*
