Phone Scam Solicits Funds For Jobless Veterans

By  | 

BANGOR, Maine (WMTW) A new scam solicits money for a fake program supposedly supporting jobless veterans, a new notice from AARP's Fraud Watch Network reports.

In the scam, a person will call asking for donations for a program with three different levels: gold, silver and bronze.

While there are programs supporting veterans, none will call soliciting money over the phone, fraud officials said.

Officials remind you it is never a good idea to give credit card or other personal information out over the phone.
