Beware of fake charities and scams targeting members of the military
Memorial Day is a time to honor those who serve and remember those who have given their life while serving. But sadly, it has also become an opportunity for scammers to target those serving or who have served their nation, especially elderly veterans.
Better Business Bureau (BBB) Serving Western Virginia urges consumers and donors to be aware of deals that seem too-good-to-be-true and fake charities. BBB offers services and resources to active-duty service members, veterans, and reservists from all branches of the armed forces to prevent scams.
