Veterans Should Look Out for These Scams
If you thought those Camp Lejeune liability ads all over TV are scams, well, the Veterans Administration says some may be. And this is just the latest in a line of scams directed at veterans.
“Dishonest attorneys are messaging veterans with offers of assistance but charge inflated fees,” the VA says. The agency is warning about unscrupulous lawyers who are advertising for clients with claims for Camp Lejeune injuries or who want to file claims under the PACT Act.
The VA said that "predatory companies, not recognized by VA" are targeting veterans by offering to help them with their benefits claims. The companies charge "absurd fees" or require veterans to pay them a portion of their benefits. The agency says it will never charge veterans to apply for benefits.
