The Start of "Operation Protect Veterans"
From the USVCP (reprinted)
According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), Americans lost almost $1 billion to scam artists last year (2108).  And, veterans were the group hit the hardest, with veterans losing almost twice as much as the general public. AARP research found that 16% of veterans lost money to scammers in 2018. Why did that happen?  How did it happen? Research by AARP suggests that veterans will normally trust another person who contacts them and claims to be a veteran. In addition many veterans are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which makes them more vulnerable to the emotional manipulation used by professional scam artists.

What are the scam artists’ primary techniques when approaching veterans?  Here are the most common scams used against veterans. Follow the links in this and the above paragraphs.
