Department of Veterans Affairs Issues Fraud Alert on Marketing Scam

November 22, 2013

The AFL-CIO Union Veterans Council would like to share this alert from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs:

The Department of Veterans Affairs has issued a fraud alert about a marketing scam that is targeting veterans who misdial the VA National Call Center (800-827-1000) or the GI Bill Call Center (888-442-4551) phone numbers. A marketing company created two phone numbers that differ from the real VA numbers by one digit. If a veteran incorrectly dials and calls the bogus number, the answering party will offer a gift card and try to obtain sensitive personal data, including credit card information.
