Scammers Often Target Veterans

1 min read

Each year on November 11 our nation sets aside a day to recognize and remember veterans of the armed forces who have served and sacrificed so much to protect us and our freedom.  As we thank them for this service, we can also do something to help protect them.  

Veterans are often targets of frauds and scams aimed at stealing veterans’ benefits, hard-earned savings, and even their identities.  If you are a veteran or know a veteran, I encourage you to view and share information provided by the United States Postal Inspection Service at the USPIS website:

The site provides information about schemes targeting vets.  Information and knowledge can be powerful weapons. Please join me to do our part to fight against fraudsters and scammers and help protect those who have given so much to protect us.
