The Better Business Bureau is warning military members who are serving or have served our nation to be on the lookout for deals that seem too good to be true, and also for disreputable charities this Memorial Day.
Here are some scams for which the BBB says we should be wary:
Callers posing as Veterans Administration and contacting veterans to say they need to update their credit card, bank or other financial records with the VA.
Charging service members for services, like providing military records, they could get cheaper or for free elsewhere.
And offering "instant approval" military loans. They can have high interest rates and hidden fees.
