Warning to Veterans

A number of private groups are contacting veterans and asking for personal information. These groups are not connected with the Veterans Administration (VA).

One organization called Veterans Affairs Services (VAS) is providing benefit and general information on the VA and gathering personal information on veterans. This organization is not affiliated with the VA in any way.

Websites with the name "vaservices" immediately after the "www" are not part of the Department of Veterans Affairs, the US government agency. Do not visit the sites or if approached or called, do not provide any information concerning yourself or data on other veterans.

The real VA website is www.va.gov; the Veterans Benefits Administration website is www.vba.va.gov; and the Veterans Health Care website is www.va.gov/health. Remember any legitimate website for the federal or state governments ends with the three letters .gov, and all information about the VA can be accessed by visiting the www.va.gov site. Also be aware that the Department of Veterans Affairs does not randomly call veterans, nor does it ask veterans for information, which it does already have—like Social Security Numbers.

In particular, if you have not dealt with the VA previously—and in person—and all of a sudden, you receive a call from someone saying they are with the VA or something similar sounding, hang up the phone. Do not respond to emails, which suggest that they are from the VA. The VA never conducts official business nor asks for any personal information by email.

For questions about veteran services and benefits contact the VA directly or the Veteran's Agent in each town. Robin Fletcher is Mendon's Veteran's Agent and may be contacted at the Mendon Senior Center, 508-478-6175. Milford's Veteran's Agent is John Pilla. His Town Hall office is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the work week. Contact the office by calling 508-634-2311 or emailing jpilla@townofmilford.com. Margaret C. Laneri is Director of Veteran's Services in Upton and maybe contacted through Town Hall or by emailing mlaneri@upton.ma.us
