The Cuyahoga County Scam Squad is warning veterans about a scam impacting the Veterans choice program.
The program allows veterans to seek health care outside of the V-A.
“The problem is that scam artist have created a phony telephone number that they hope will cause confusion,” said Larissa Bungo, Assistant Regional Director of the Federal Trade Commission.
The correct number to call is 866-606-8198. If you dial 1-800 at the beginning of the veteran's choice number, you're calling scammers who could ask for your credit card information.
Remember the VA will not ask for Financial Account information.
