Genesee County Veterans Being Targeted In Scam [VIDEO]

This has happened to young as well as old veterans. Genesee County Sheriff Robert Pickell says a new scam is targeting veterans, claiming they’re owed thousands of dollars.

Veterans are being targeted over the phone, with the scammers claiming to be from Veterans Affairs. They’re telling veterans that they have thousands of dollars coming to them.

The scammer says he is from the VA and he informs the vet that there was a problem with their records and they are owed up to $20,000 in back pay. First the scammer will ask for your bank account number..so they can deposit funds owed.

That’s when the red flags should go up. Never give a bank account out to anyone on the phone. If you feel you’ve been victim to this scam, call the Genesee County Consumer Protection Bureau at 810-257-3407.
