Default Who is the Foundation for Amer. Vets and why do they keep calling?

This outfit has called here numerous times over the last few weeks asking for Rosamond. I try ignoring the calls and answer a few times to tell them to take me off their call list, but they keep calling. Is this a new scam?

Sounds to me like one. I was getting scam calls telling me my name cane up on a search informing me I had to call back or face punishment. They never address who they are or who they are specifically looking for. I block their numbers.

From a quick Google search it looks like they are legit - HOWEVER - the amount of money that actually goes to anything veteran related is less than 10%! The rest must be paying fundraisers and staff. Not quite a scam, but pretty close in my opinion.

Any unsolicited call looking for donations-word to the wise hang up--same goes for warranty offers.

our land line is connected to my fax. Anyone we know or do business with has our cells, everyone else gets a fax tone. I keep waiting for the first of these salespeople to figure it out and fax me,I might even consider their product, NOT!
