GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV)- Veterans are often scammed through phony benefits or investments. Con artists use tactics that hit veterans hearts and wallets.
Consider these AARP tips:
-Check out the credentials of anyone offering investment advice.
-Be aware that con artists capitalize on patriotism to scam people. Just because the word “veterans” is in the name of a charity doesn’t mean it’s legit.
-If you get a phone call from someone requesting personal information don’t give it out. Rather, hang up and check with the VA directly.
