Caller name: American Veterans Society
Caller type: Unknown
Called me and started his script about representing veterans, homeless veterans, and disabled veterans. Partway through, I interrupted, stating truthfully "I am a disabled veteran." He said "excuse me, could you repeat that?" which I did, and he hung up. I've no doubt this is a scam company, as otherwise, wouldn't he have stayed on the line to perhaps inform me how his organization could help me?
