“While veterans are bombarded by the same scam pitches we all receive, our research found that they’re also under special attack by a number of additional scams tailored just for them.” (the preceding paragraph is in the article from AARP. Follow the link below to read the article)
Here is another excerpt from the article;
The veteran-specific scams that veterans reported encountering include being asked to:
Donate money to support fellow veterans;
Take part in a little-known government program that could bring lots of cash;
Improve the terms of a VA loan; or
Pay for a more affordable back, arm or knee brace
Six and a half million veterans are AARP members. The U.S. Postal Service is the largest employer of veterans in the United States, with 113,000 vets in its workforce.
