Veterans Choice Program Telephone Line Imposter
Courtesy of Philadelphia VAMC & Congressman LoBiondo’s office...
Good morning, it has come to VA’s attention that a phone line has been set up by an unknown party to potentially “mimic” the Veterans Choice Program phone line. This imposter phone line may be intended to reach Veterans who inadvertently dial the VCP number incorrectly.
We want you to know that VA is taking this seriously and to keep you aware of the steps we are taking... VHA Office of Community Care (VHA CC) has reported the “mimic” line to the VA Office of Inspector General for a possible civil or criminal investigation.
Please see the attached fact sheet for additional information about this “mimic” and please share it with Veterans.
