Reviews for Foundation For American Veterans

Rating: 1 stars

I requested, and was sent, an envelope rather than give out my credit card number. The "pledge" card had telephone numbers on the back for various agencies to verify that this is an authentic charity. I called the number for the Texas Secretary of State. A lady answered with, Texas Sec of state ofc, may I help you. I said Foundation for Ameri....... before I finished she said it was legitimate. Very strange. The number was a 1+800 number. The Texas Sec of State's office has a 512 area code, no 800 numbers. This is a SCAM. Period. DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY MONEY!!!

Thank you all for the reviews! Y'all just saved me $20.00! They asked for a credit card # & said "if this is a legit organization, you'll send me out pledge card"--I too hung up on them. Five days later, I got the cardd. Thank God for the internet!

Relentless calling! The guy's tone at one point was pretty hostile after talking like a car salesman! They called again after I told them to talk our name off their list. Is there a zero star for rating?

I received their call @ 8AM our time. I am someone that helped several State Attorney Generals, the DNC, FCC. FTC, and FBI bust and fine a number of the "boiler rooms". My suggestion is to contact all of the above with the "spoofed" phone numbers that are on your phone. We actually had people apply for jobs with them, and let us know the locations, the actual phone numbers, the names of their supervisors and owners. They NOT as smart as they think they are. I wish I could give them a -5 for a rating, since there is nothing below a 0 there. but I had to hit 1 star to get this published LOL

I spoke to a very enthusiatic male re: donating, then was given over to an enthusiatic female who first asked for my credit card number and then since I refused she agreed to send me a pledge reply in the mail. I had been reading about nonprofit scams recently and decided to Google this Foundation . I am so grateful for all the people who recorded their experiences re: Foundation For American Veterans ! Slick, Slick, Slick, be warned don't fall for their speil !

I thank every one for their postings, It helps get the word out. Too bad We have to put up with crap like this. When they called here they asked for my husband (who passed away 2 years ago) I told them I donate monthly to Wounded Warriors and that is all that I can do, but they persisted. There are better places to donate your money, But check those out too. I am disappointed that I have to rate this "foundation" They don't even deserve a one star!

The number of calls that I receive from American Foundation for Veterans should be considered harassment, I would say they average 1 to 2 per day. They call from early morning to 8,51 P.M. CST as was the case last night . I had just gotten to sleep for the first time in 72hours because of illness. It is now midnight can not return to sleep. The calls are ever ending. I would not ever consider a donation to this group!
Why would you keep calling when no answer, hang up or decline to donate? Harassment!

Like everyone else they were very friendly and called me by my first name.Asked if I could make a small donation to the Vets and they would send me the pledge card.When I said yes I was turned over to girl who asked me for my credit card number. I told her I would check with GuideStar to verify their ratings.The phone went dead.

I was very upset when I received the information through the mail. I had spoken at length with the man who initiated the donation: I wanted him to guarantee that my money would go to Montana vets. He promised, told me to go to the Attorney General's for proof of the organization's credibility, etc. THEN the letter from Michigan comes, and yes, it is virtually the same packaging as several other telephone calling organizations have used. If I want to donate to a Montana vet, I will go to Fort Harrison over Christmas break and see what I can do LOCALLY.

Did the organization use your time wisely?

Badly

Would you recommend this group to a friend?

No
