Fraud Awareness

Scam artists often try to take advantage of unsuspecting veterans and their families.

GDVS and VA will NEVER ask you for a credit card number or banking information over the phone. 

Some veterans have reported receiving a call from someone claiming to work for GDVS or VA and requesting banking information to deposit your claim money. The caller may even transfer veterans to the VA after their information is obtained.

Be wary of anyone requesting personal and sensitive information over the phone. GDVS has notified state authorities to address this situation.
