A friend came across this organization's previous review and told me of it. It is a shame that there have been and continue to be scams run under the guise of legitimate organizations. The EIN, phone number and address listed are bogus. To set the record straight the DAV does not do phone solicitation now and never has. As a life member and former officer in the DAV I am truly sorry that our name has been used by an unscrupulous scam artist. Should anyone ever receive a call claiming to be representing the DAV they should call our National Headquarters at 877.426.2838.
There are so many of these veteran charities, it makes me sick. They are all after my 90 year old father, they work on him and use his patriotism to get him to give them money. They prey on him, they are nothing but vultures. He is confused and senile and they take advantage of that also.. Once, they received a $460 donation from him , then turned around a few weeks later and asked him for another donation and would he increase it. Are you kidding me? That is when my brother and I got involved.
