An important Camp Lejeune scam alert has been issued by AARP Virginia to veterans with legitimate contamination claims.

According to the Camp Lejeune scam alert, fraudsters are exploiting the the Honoring Our PACT Act of 2022 (PACT Act), which was passed by Congress last year. Under the PACT Act, the U.S. Veterans administration undertook its largest expansion of benefits for victims of the Camp Lejeune contamination.

According to the AARP, veterans are 40% more likely to be targeted by scammers and lose money due to a scam than members of the general population. Most Camp Lejeune scammers contact veterans and tell them they must pay a fee in order to collect benefits from the Camp Lejeune contamination.

It is free for victims to file Camp Lejeune contamination claims, but those affected have less than a year to do so.

Veterans, their families, and civilian contractors living in states like Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico may have been targeted by similar scams.

About the Camp Lejeune Contamination

Hundreds of thousands of marines, their families, and civilian workers stationed at U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, North Carolina, were exposed to water contaminated by trichloroethylene (TCE), tetrachloroethylene (PCE), vinyl chloride (VC), and benzene between the years of 1953 and 1987.

These chemicals can cause multiple types of cancer, Parkinson’s disease, and other serious health problems, many that can result in death.
