Today on Veterans Day, we thank all veterans for their service and dedication to our democracy.
Unfortunately, it is well-known that veterans are targeted with scams, so providing tips today to prevent scams against veterans is timely.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has provided tips for veterans to avoid scams, which can be read here.
The tips include:
- Never pay to be part of a clinical trial, or to find out about one
- Be wary of robocalls saying you overpaid utility bills
- Be wary of offers to help pay your student loan debt
- Consult http://www.militaryconsumer.gov/ to avoid known scams against veterans
Let’s all help our veterans avoid becoming the victim of a scam and thank them for their service every day, not just today.
