Start Date:3/9/2021

When you’re a Military Veteran, you’re twice as likely to be a target for scams. Con artists use fake Veterans charities, service benefit buy-out schemes, bogus jobs scams, and now the pandemic to steal your money and even your identity. Every day, scammers invent new ways to defraud Veterans – simply because you wore America's uniform. Veterans and Military Families must remain vigilant in the new year to protect themselves against the latest threats.
