DFAS Issues Warning to All Veterans & Military Members 


This document provides information regarding phony refund schemes related to military disability compensation.           


Emails are being sent to individuals, including military members, military retirees, and civilian employees, which appear to be sent by Defense Finance and Accounting Services (DFAS). Although the email appears to come from DFAS and displays a .mil email address it is actually from a non-government email account.           


The emails indicate that individuals who are receiving disability compensation from the Department of Veterans Affairs may be able to obtain additional funds from the IRS. These emails are not issued by DFAS.              


The email indicates that individuals receiving VA disability compensation can receive additional funds from the IRS by sending copies of VA award letters, income tax returns, 1099-Rs, Retiree Account Statements, and DD 214s, to a retired Colonel at an address in Florida.                


These schemes can be quite costly for victims. Promoters may charge exorbitant upfront fees to file these claims and are often long gone when victims discover they’ve been scammed.               


Taxpayers should be careful of these scams because, regardless of who prepared their tax return, the taxpayer is legally responsible for the accuracy of their tax return and must repay any refunds received in error, plus any penalties and interest. They may even face criminal prosecution.            


To avoid becoming ensnared in these schemes, taxpayers should beware of any of the following:      

  • Fictitious claims for refunds or rebates based on false statements of entitlement to tax credits
  • Emails from unfamiliar senders asking for personal information
  • Internet solicitations that direct individuals to toll-free numbers and then solicit Social Security numbers or other personal information

If you receive a notice from the IRS, respond immediately. If you believe someone may have used your SSN fraudulently, please notify IRS immediately by responding to the name and number printed on the notice or letter. You will need to fill out the IRS Identity Theft Affidavit, Form 14039.

Toxic Water Found At VA

As part of their EPA Watch program that aims to test public water supplies across America for toxic heavy metals and chemicals, Natural News has completed a water sample that was collected from inside the VA Medical Center located at 950 Campbell Avenue, West Haven, Connecticut, zip code 06516.

The scientific analysis of the water via LC/MS-TOF, reveals that the VAMC’s  water supply apparently carries a startling array of potentially toxic chemicals.

This water sample was sent to Natural News as part of their
nationwide EPA Watch program which has already begun testing water samples for heavy metals, toxic chemicals and more. All results from the EPA Watch testing are being posted publicly.


VA Falsified Documents - Again!
April 8, 2016

It appears as though VA level supervisors instructed VA employees to falsify patient wait times at Veterans Affairs' medical facilities in at least seven states, according to new reports from several media outlets.


In the last two years, investigations have revealed that VA employees at 40 VA medical facilities in 19 states and Puerto Rico regularly “zeroed out” veteran wait times. In some cases, investigators found manipulation had been going on for as long as a decade. In others, it had been just a few years.


In many cases, facility leaders told investigators they clamped down the scheduling improprieties after the Phoenix VA scandal, but in others, investigators found they had continued unabated.  The manipulation masked growing demand as new waves of veterans returned from wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and as Vietnam veterans aged and needed more health care.


The newly released findings show that VA supervisors instructed schedulers to manipulate wait times in Arkansas, California, Delaware, Illinois, New York, Texas and Vermont, giving the false impression facilities there were meeting VA performance measures for shorter wait times.
