Scams Target Veterans

Scams Target Veterans
By David on October 26, 2011 in Veteran, Why Complain

Typically criminals target the vulnerable: the elderly, the ill, the disenfranchised, and more recently veterans.

In the past month two scams targeting veterans and veteran issues were brought to my attention.

The most recent scam used telephone calls to solicit donations to enable veterans to speak at schools.  The scammer states that they represent a veteran organization not associated with the Legion.  Many veteran organizations, especially the Legion, have long-standing relationships with schools.  To my knowledge, there is not one veteran organization that charges for a Veteran?s appearance.   Don?t be fooled by this scam.

The second scam is much more involved.  It specifically targets veterans suffering, or potentially suffering, from Depleted Uranium (DU) or Agent Orange (AO) poisoning and are having difficulty proving their claim to government. The scam involves supplying a urine sample and paying  $560.00/person, to receive ?guaranteed? analysis.

The name associated with the scam is Ms. Linda K. May B.S., R.N., B.S.N.; it is unknown if this is a real name or an alias.  The name Linda K May is associated with scams covering a variety of subjects including: mold, Nuclear Security, Agent Orange, and the newest is Depleted Uranium.  The company names associated with the scam include Warbler of Illinois and LKM Health and Safety Consultants.  The name Linda K. May is associated with scams or scam attempts in California, Connecticut, Michigan, and Illinois.

Some basic research can provide enough information to avoid being scammed.  For example:

    An accountant occupies the address that Warbler of Illinois uses ? I used reverse look up ? and called the number associated with the address.
    I attempted to contact LKM Health and Safety Consultants? landline phone was disconnected but the cell phone number (used a Maryland prefix) was operational. I called the Cell phone number 8 times and left messages. I did not receive a response to any of my calls.
    Linda K May claims that she can gain access to the Illinois State University to conduct the urine tests. I called the university, but no one associated with Linda K May was given access to university facilities.  Universities have to be very careful when granting access to facilities for a variety of legal and insurance reasons. The scam may involve ?kitchen sink analysis? a scam where samples are poured down the kitchen sink and a false report is generated.

Research on the Internet for scams associated with the name Linda K. May provided the flowing links:

Complaints associated with the name Linda K. May have been filed with the Attorney General?s in California, Connecticut, Michigan, Illinois, and with the US DOJ in Washington DC.

Let?s be fair but aware.  The name Linda K. May is a common one and not everyone using this name is a scammer.  However, when something seems too good to be true, look it up!  If you sense a fraud or scam do not hesitate to do some research and then contact your local police or the RCMP.
