Attorney General Warns Of Veterans Scam

KSCB News - September 29, 2009 12:00 am

Attorney General Steve Six is warning Kansas veterans of a new scam targeting those who served the United States in the Armed Forces. The scam was reported to the Department of Veteran Affairs by other veterans organizations that heard about the calls.

Calls are being placed to veterans telling them the Department of Veterans Affairs needs their credit card information to update their prescription records. The VA is warning veterans nationwide that the calls are not coming from them or anyone acting on the government’s behalf and urging the veterans to not give out their personal financial information to these callers. The veterans are told that the VA has recently changed its procedures for giving out medication and therefore needs their credit card numbers. This is a scam.

Six reminds all Kansans not to give out personal information on the phone or through email.
