As Veterans Day is celebrated this week, Reform Online Lending would like to remind military families and veterans to be especially aware of the financial services scams that often target them. Unfortunately, many fraudsters will use Veterans Day as an opportunity to scam those who have served our country.
It is important to not only be aware of the most common online lending scams, but also the ways to avoid and recognize them.The FTC’s consumer information page for military families is a great resource for this kind of information.
Reform Online Lending is continuing to focus its efforts on weeding out fraudsters who target members of the military and their families. Financial services industry employees have a duty to report lending scams, especially those that defraud military men and women, veterans and their families.
