National Veterans Services Fund, Inc.
March 9, 2013

This non profit is a scam. I donated a boat. I was given the standard 500.00 tax deduction form. The next week I was contacted by a friend who saw my boat on craigs list for sale for 1900.00. When I called the number I talked to the man who picked the boat up from my house. His name was Wade. He informed me the boat was sold that day to a man in Minnesota. I asked what he got for it and he said 1900.

So I called the National Veterans Services fund and they confirmed that they sold the boat....for 300.00 dollars. When I asked where the other 1600. had gone they could not explain it to me. I called again to see if they would mail me a updated tax deduction for 1900. They said no. They said they would call me back after looking into it. That was 3 weeks ago.

I have contacted the States Attorney General of Oregon, and the IRS......

DO NOT CONSIDER DONATING TO THIS CHARITY. They do not give much or any of the proceeds to the vets.
