The Veterans Home Care LLC would fall w/in the definition regarding veteran benefits scams described below. Just substitute "loan" for "annuity" and you have the same issue. Scroll all the way down please.
I will provide more information as I receive it. Do not sign on with VHC.
Hi Everybody. I am interested to know if any of you have encountered elders
who were sold annuities by insurance agents promising to qualify them for
the Veterans Aid and Attendance pension, or any other pension offered by the
This scam, which is really just a variation on the trust mill, appears to be
spreading, and just yesterday, Montana's AG put out a warning about it:
My agency has been working with California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform
to try to get to the bottom of this scam for almost three years now, ever
since a nonprofit claiming to be affiliated with the VA unleashed a number
of insurance agents representing themselves as "volunteers" onto our local
senior centers, ostensibly to educate veterans about their benefits. It was
a Trojan Horse scam of the worst sort.
We are interested in speaking with any affected elders or other persons who
may have insight into this scam. We are especially interested in speaking
with elders who would be willing to talk to media, though this is certainly
not a requirement. It also doesn't matter what state the elder lives in.
Thank a bunch!
