    Scammers Target the Veterans Choice Program Phone Line Scammers Target the Veterans Choice Program Phone Line

    The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) warns veterans about a fraudulent phone line that emulates the Veterans Choice Program’s (VCP) line. The fake phone number, 1-800-606-8198, is very similar to the correct phone number, 1-866-606-8198, which allows veterans to check their eligibility and ask questions about the program. The fake phone line offers callers a $100 rebate if the caller provides a credit card number. It does not state that the caller has reached the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs or the VCP phone line.

    If you are unsure you have reached the correct phone line, hang up and dial 1-866-606-8198. The phone line will state that you have reached the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
