The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is warning veterans that a phone line has been taking advantage of veterans who misdial the Veterans Choice Program phone number.

The phone number for the Veterans Choice Program is 866-606-8198, while the impostor line is 800-606-8198.

The VA said the impostors claim to offer callers a $100 rebate if they provide a credit card number. The VA has stated that it never has and never would ask for that information or offer or offer financial incentives to obtain the information.

We want you to know that the VA is taking this seriously and is taking steps for a possible civil or criminal investigation.

Please see the attached fact sheet for additional information about this issue and share as appropriate.
