Senate Committee Tells Veterans Affairs To Do More To Protect Military Vets From Elder-Abuse Scams.

November 6, 2019

In an article in Forbes (11/6), contributor Ted Knutson writes that the Department of Veterans Affairs “was told to do more to protect vets from elder abuse scams by the Senate Aging Committee Wednesday.” The scams “include fraudsters contacting veterans pretending to collect money to help other veterans, crooks pretending to update the files of veterans to obtain personally identifiable information or inform vets they qualify for a ‘secret’ government program that requires an initial payment, according to the letter.”
