They call and call and call. If you pick up the phone, they hang up on you. You try to unsubscribe, and they still keep calling. You're on the the gov "do not call" list...they still call.
Robo calls are illegal.... they still call. Woke up my baby and my husband tonight with another late night call. Again. Picked up the phone, they hung up on me. Again. Checked out their website... scam. Checked with Charity Navigator... they received and F.

I've had the same experience with this "charity." I initially received a call from "Steve" one evening and told him that I do not donate to charities over the phone and donate through the United Way. He got very "upset" with me and verbally aggressive. I asked for my name and number to be deleted from their database.
About 1 month ago, they called me again and asked that I donate $50. I finally coaxed me into pledging $10. said he would mail me the information. Then Steve put on someone to verify my donation, and she asked for my credit card info. I said I would not provide my credit card information to anyone over the phone. I said send me something in the mail. I received their info in the mail. Since the phone call, I have been receiving phone calls from him from various phone numbers for this charity sometimes up to THREE a day, as late as 9:30 at night. I feel this is point harassment when someone calls you that often and ignores your requests to not call back.
I looked them up after I received their letter and found lots of reviewers had similar problems with this company. Other web sites gave them a poor rating a well because only a small portion of their donations actually go to Veterans. I will not be donating to them.

This charity has been calling a dozen times a day, when my phone rings, I pick up the
phone and there is about a three second pause while their computer transfers the call
to the agent, at that pause I hang up knowing it is a telemarketer. Finally I let the call go
thru and the fast talker wanted a donation. I told him after I research his foundation will
a donation be considered. Hung up on him. Hope he doesn't call any more.

Fast talker "Steve' has been calling non stop for over a month even after I told him that his organization is a scam and stop calling. I stopped picking up the phone when I saw his number on caller ID. I finally had it with him today and in order to shut him up I had to yell that I don't trust his organization and stop calling. Anyone that comes on this strong is obviously a scam artist.

I've had the same experience with this "charity." I initially received a call from "Steve" early one morning. He tried to get me to donate $50, but finally coaxed me into pledging $30. Then he put on someone to verify my donation, and she wanted my credit card info. I said I would not do that. She said she could save me time and a stamp! I said, no, send me something in the mail. I just received their info in the mail, but since his phone call, I have been receiving daily phone calls from him from various phone numbers. He always seems to call at the most inopportune times, I guess because it's their best chance to find someone home. We even received a phone call on Thanksgiving. My husband answered one night and told him I was not at this number. He apologized and said he would note that, but that didn't stop him from calling again tonight. I feel it's almost to the point of harassment when someone calls you that often and ignores your requests to not call back. After I received their information in the mail, I looked them up and found these reviews and other web sites giving them a bad rating as almost none of their donation funds actually go to Veterans. Needless to say, I will not be donating to them.

These people should be ashamed of themselves. You would do better to give $10.00 to the guy on the street with a sign saying he is a homeless veteran and hungry. At least if he is a scam he had to dress up in some pretty shabby rags and stand out in the street and weather.
I resent someone using my service to pad their pockets. I served for all Americans, even these scumbags. But I am not going to pay again. If you are a veteran, put $10.00 in your other pocket and tell them that you just made a donation that 100% went directly to benefit a follow veteran.

I was surprised to receive a call on my work phone and they asked for somebody else and I said it was a wrong number. The rep said he could speak to me and mentioned donations to veterans. I was interested and I was ready to donate and asked him to provide some more information before proceeding and that I would call back to donate. I looked them up and found that this appears to be a scam.
