The Veterans Affairs Department is warning veterans about a “marketing scam” that reportedly targets callers trying to reach two of VA's national call centers. VA officials have notified law enforcement authorities to address the situation, according to a fraud alert posted on the department's Facebook page late Thursday.
The marketing company has established two toll-free numbers that differ by one digit from the VA National Call Center and the VA GI Bill Call Center. If the caller happens to dial the wrong number, the veteran is offered a gift card in return for providing personal and financial information, including credit card card information.
“Note that VA will never ask you for a credit card number or banking information over the phone,” the VA alert stated.
Military Times called each of the bogus numbers. Initial recorded messages tell callers they have been selected or may be selected for a $100 Wal-Mart gift voucher, and direct them to press 1 to be transferred to someone who will help process their vouchers.
Entities within LCO and Sawyer County are joining the nationwide trend for improving the overall handling of child abuse cases by forming a Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT). The MDT will develop working protocols that will aim to reduce trauma to children and families experiencing child abuse. By improving interagency coordination we will minimize the number of times a child has to tell their story of abuse. This team method also improves the opportunity for children and families to heal by having a more responsive and accountable system.
The LCO Newsletter is published and distributed monthly and can be picked up at the Tribal Office or one of many businesses and locations around the reservation. Each month it is also published in digital format online for download.
This special section contains information about the proposed Penokee Hills Mine and about the LCO Harvest camp which has been established in the area. Also provided are maps and overview PDF documents for download outlining more information about the mine.
