WV Attorney General Morrisey warns veterans of scams

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is urging veterans to be on the lookout for potential scams targeting those who are eligible for benefits under the Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics (PACT) Act.

The PACT Act expands health care and benefits to an estimated five million veterans exposed to toxins such as Agent Orange or burn pits during the Vietnam, Gulf War and post-9/11 eras.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs indicated the target of the scams usually are older veterans.

“These scammers are stooping to a new low by focusing their schemes on our veterans, our men and women who have served and sacrificed for our country,” Attorney General Morrisey said. “These fraudsters will stop at nothing to earn a buck, and my office will not leave any stones unturned to go after these criminals. Those who defraud veterans must be held accountable to the full extent of the law.”
