Bacteria feeding off the veterans we love!

Why do they do it? Why do they cheat the very people they claim are so worthy of being helped? Why do they take advantage of the fact we love our veterans?

It's easy! They do not really give a damn and frankly, we do not care enough to find out if veterans get what the group claims they need.

Stop Veteran Charity Scams 
Federal Trade Commission

Published on Jul 19, 2018
Many charities do a great job supporting our nation’s veterans, but a few take advantage of people’s generosity. This video tells donors how to research charities to avoid donating to a sham charity.

The Federal Trade Commission deals with issues that touch the economic life of every American. It is the only federal agency with both consumer protection and competition jurisdiction in broad sectors of the economy. The FTC pursues vigorous and effective law enforcement; advances consumers' interests by sharing its expertise with federal and state legislatures and U.S. and international government agencies; develops policy and research tools through hearings, workshops, and conferences; and creates practical and plain-language educational programs for consumers and businesses in a global marketplace with constantly changing technologies.
