Phone scam targeting Ohio veterans

A new scam is taking aim at Ohio's veterans.

Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray said veterans throughout the nation are getting calls from people claiming they represent Patient Care Group. The callers say Veterans Affairs procedures have changed and then try to get credit card information.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs stresses that nothing has changed and credit card numbers should not be given over the phone. They say under no circumstances would they call you and ask for credit card information. If you get such a call, hang up.
