WASHINGTON (KMOX) – There’s a warning about a new scam targeting veterans.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is reporting that someone is sending letters to veterans, listing a phone number that is nearly identical to the number for the Veterans Choice Program.

When a veteran calls the number, the scammer asks for their credit card information.

The actual number for the Veterans Choice Program is 866-606-8198.
