Warning about potential VRAP scam

Please be  aware of a potential scam targeting veterans who have either signed up or have  been approved for VRAP!

A  veteran has reported receiving a call  from someone named “James” who  congratulated him on his VRAP approval. He advised him that he knew the exact amount he was approved  for and that the $8500 would be directly deposited into his account within 45  minutes of him giving his banking account number and routing number and paying $205 for the service  fee.

This person is not affiliated with  the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).  VA will never call you and ask for private  information over the phone.  If you do  receive a call like this, please contact the Federal Trade Commission at http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/microsites/phonefraud/index.shtml
