Prevent scams targeting veterans

New Aid and Attendance benefit scam placemat available for bulk orders!

Good afternoon,

If you're working with older adults, many of whom might be veterans, consider alerting them about the dangers of fraud and scams targeting vets who may qualify for the Aid and Attendance pension benefit. The Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (the Bureau) is offering a new placemat on scams targeting this benefit. Read our latest blog for more information on scams that target the Aid and Attendance benefit.

We prepared the new resource as part of a series of fraud and scam prevention placemats. Varying in topic, but all with a focus on helping older consumers avoid fraud and scams, there are 10 placemats available in English and 6 in Spanish. New placemats, some interactive, others with corresponding guides, are released quarterly. Since the program began in 2015, nearly 2 million placemats have been distributed. The placemats are available for download or for FREE bulk orders at consumerfinance.gov/placemats.

Place an order of the Aid and Attendance benefit scam prevention and awareness placemats and share with people in your community. The placemats can be used to help educate older adults and others about these scams.

Thank you,

Erin Scheithe
