Fraudulent Veterans Choice Program - May. 03, 2017

Maine Delegation Warns of Fraudulent Veterans Choice Program Phone Line Trying to Steal Veterans' Personal Information
 
WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senators Susan Collins and Angus King and Representatives Chellie Pingree and Bruce Poliquin are warning Maine veterans to beware of a scam where imposters attempt to imitate the Veterans Choice Program (VCP) phone line.
 
Through this scam, a phone line has been set up by an unknown party to potentially mimic the VCP phone line. The imposter phone line may be intended to reach veterans who inadvertently dial the VCP number incorrectly.

The correct VCP phone line is 1-866-606-8198. This line is for veterans to check their eligibility for the VCP and ask questions about the program. The phone line established to "mimic" the VCP phone line is 1-800-606-8198.
 
Veterans will know they have reached the wrong VCP phone line when: 1) The phone line offers callers a $100 rebate if the caller provides a credit card; and 2) The phone line does not state the caller has reached the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs of the VCP phone line.
