Warning to Veterans
From the Office of the Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs:
An organization called Veterans Affairs Services (VAS) is providing benefit and general information on VA and gathering personal information on veterans. This organization is not affiliated with VA in any way.
Be aware that the Department of Veterans Affairs does not randomly call veterans, nor does it ask veterans for information which it does not already have—such as Social Security Numbers. Do not respond to emails that suggest they are from the VA. The VA never conducts official business nor asks for personal information by email.
