The men and women who honorably serve our country in uniform deserve our appreciation and respect. They take an oath to defend and protect our nation and our freedoms. In return, they deserve protection against unfair treatment and financial exploitation.
Unfortunately, veterans are too often targeted by scam artists and unscrupulous businesses looking to make a quick buck through unfair and deceptive practices. This update highlights recent cases brought by my office to put a stop to illegal Aid and Attendance scams that targeted veterans and their families. Vigorously enforcing existing laws is an important part of the work of my office.
My office also encourages the enactment of new laws and policies that offer greater protections. As Attorney General, I am always looking for ways I can advocate on behalf of Washington's veterans and military families. This update includes two examples of successful advocacy at the federal level.
It is an honor to serve Washington’s veterans, military personnel, and their families. You can learn more about what the Attorney General’s Office does to stand up for veterans and military families by reading my previous updates at www.atg.wa.gov/veteran-and-mIlitary-resources.
