NO STARS FOR RATING - I usually do not answer the phone when I don't recognize the number. After repeated phone calls, I did answer. I did NOT make a pledge over the phone, but told them it was a "possibility" - they asked for credit card. I said no, send me info. They asked to confirm address. I said you must already have it. Transferred me to another associate who asked if this was my current address and she did provide info that matched my address. Two days later received the pledge card in the mail. Shredded it immediately. Two days later received a reminder. Read these reviews, copied some of them and I am sending a letter stating that I DID NOT MAKE A PLEDGE and requested they remove my name, phone number and address from their files. GAVE NO STARS but it will not let me post without one.

Please do not fall for this scam. Don't let them pressure you into donating by mail or by phone. They call me every day at 8 p.m. they are not approved by the BBB. A real charity will not call relentlessly! I did not give them any $, and they still call everyday, but that is not going to make me donate, I just don't answer the phone when they call.

Very pushy salesperson. When I told him that I would not donate to a charity before looking them up, he hung up. It is really a shame that people are scammed into thinking that they are helping when the money does not go to the vets they purport to be helping.

This organization is a sham. The bottom line is DO NOT DONATE A PENNY TO THEM!! They repeatedly call and try using different peoples name when they do. They just tried " Nicole"......told them they had the wrong number and hung up on them. I guess i'll have to threaten them with the whale poop, a lawyer. Damn shame this group is using our Vets to get rich.

I screwed up folks and made a donation. It was only 15.00 and not a bank breaker but I feel really stupid now.
Oh well, you live and learn. I'll watch my account and make sure they don't do anything shady.

These people call me every day, even though I have told them to not call me again. Another scam non profit.

They called for my wife and when they couldn't get her they tried me. Asked for a pledge then tried to get my credit card info. I hung up and within a day or two got a pledge card in the mail. They didn't have my name but had my address. I don't know how they got phone number and address. They call every day now and I don't answer. They sent a second pledge "reminder" already. The director must want to give himself a raise. Very small amount of what they collect goes to veterans. One tenth of what goes to the people who do the telephone harassment.

I am a disabled Veteran, have never heard of this organization before today. they are pushy, very pushy, they tried to have me give my credit card info, I informed them I am a disabled vet and have no money until next month but they still pushed, I told them I would talk with wife when I got her up for work, they still pushed.. they are going to mail me something, but I have been unable to see how much of my money ill go to homeless vets...SO DON'T GIVE TO THESE SCAMMERS. THEY ILL GET A PIECE OF MY MIND INSTEAD. and if they keep harassing me i will turn them into fcc

My experience with this organization is the same as most of the others. A friendly start, then pushy tactics to get you to pledge a $ amount. Like many others, I told them to send the information, and I would take a look at their organization. What arrived was a pledge card for $10 with no other information. I did not pledge, and will not send them anything now that I did take a look at the money which actually goes to a veteran.

CALLED ME AT 8PM AT NIGHT TO DONATE TO THE VETERANS. VETERANS SHOULD BE TAKEN CARE BUT THIS ORGANIZATION SEEMS SHADY. REASON BECAUSE THEY ARE ASKING FOR A CREDIT CARD FOR DONATION AND I TOLD THEM TO SEND ME THE INFORMATION. I DON'T KNOW THEM. BUT THEY KEPT INSISTING ON THE CREDIT CARD BECAUSE IT IS FASTER. I TOLD THEM INFO OR NOTHING. AT THIS POINT I DON'T WANT TO DONATE TO THEM. THERE ARE OTHER LEGITIMATE FOUNDATIONS. THANKS RICK DON'T CALL
