Warning about potential VRAP scam

Source: Dept. of Veterans Affairs --

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 charge you to access your benefits or ask you to provide private information over the phone.
