    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

Question

http://www.va.gov/hac/forbeneficiaries/forbeneficiaries.asp

"Fraud Alert!

The Department of Veterans Affairs has reported that the "Patient Care Group" is conducting a scam operation against veterans who receive VA prescriptions. Callers claiming to be representatives of this group tell veterans that their prescriptions are being administered by the company. They then ask for credit card information so that the veterans can continue to receive their medications. VA officials said that the department has made no change to its prescription system, and that veterans should not provide any information to callers from this group. "

Nevergive out bank information or credit card information to anyone over the phone...There are so many scam artists out there and they particularly try to scam the disabled and elderly. Be aware.

I keep getting this annoying call from this company "online pharmacy." They immediately want my CC to refil my medications. I keep telling them to take me off their list and not call again and that I don't need their medications since I get them free.

They keep calling anyway so I bought a whistle to blow their ears out next time they call.

I heard one of the morning show guys do the funnest things to a caller... OK this guy was not a fraud caller... but still... He asked for the guys who was calling him for his entire name, and address. Had him spell it out. Then ID'd him self as a detective in the homicide squad and he thought that it was very interesting that this guy was calling at this particular time. Got the guys address, county and state and they kind of shouted to one of his "deputies" if they had any contacts in this guys county sheriffs office that could go down and interview him... It really was one of the funniest radio morning shows I think that I ever listed to.

I like when they call. I will ask them to hold as someone is at the door. I will put the phone down, come back about 5 min later see if they are still there, talk for about 2 seconds and then do it again. I kills there productivity... I love it... 8)
