    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Man using HadIt name to collect funds - Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud

Question

I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.

Its a disgrace what some people will do for money.

I stopped give hand-outs to Homeless Veterans.

that stand on the street corner with a sign they hold up 

Homeless Veteran need food/money anything.

I use to give these guys 5/10 bucks when I seen them begging for food.

Until the News media did an undercover story on this particular  so called homeless veteran..

at the end of the day he would go home to a nice well built brick home in a respected neighbor hood and clean -him self up shaven and nice close nice car and the news media followed him  he would go to the casinos and stay all night gambling.. (he probably was not a Veteran?)

..I said to my self no more from me .Homeless Veterans are ignorant to the fact they can get help  most buy wine and booze that stand on the street corner  but they don't need to be homeless  they can seek help from the VA Them self ...even may file compensation claims  but they are just to Ignorant to do that.

People that exploit veterans directly or indirectly deserve harsh punishment.

Amen.

P.S. I used to do a lot of forensic psych evaluations in North Carolina (criminal cases) so I'm pretty familiar with the judicial system there and how to obtain (publicly-available) information. The perp in this case, Daniel D. James was on the docket for 1 Apr 2019 as the article indicated. For these initial arraignment hearings there usually isn't much info, and that's true for his case. It does list his file number though, which makes it a little easier to research down the road when he finally agrees to a plea bargain (presumably - he'd be stupid to plead his case before a jury). He's charged with a felony, Obtaining Property Under False Pretense, and a misdemeanor, violating a solicitation ordinance. His file number is  19CR 204599. The Public Defender's office is representing him.

Here's a link to the docket printout: DISTRICT Court Calendar: 04/01/19, AM Session in court Room 0301 for DISTRICT_CRIMINAL_COURT_ (PDF) or text version. He is #15 on the docket.

The worst part of this?  People are reluctant to help "real" Veterans with "real" needs, because there are so many fakes and scammers.  Thanks, Tbird for the heads up, most of us know how to donate to Tbird who really has been helping Vets for 20 years.  

Its interesting you dont call yourself a "non profit" even tho me thinks that is pretty much how it is.  I completely undestand why you would not want to go to the trouble and expense of becoming a "non profit".  That would take time and money.  Its better just to pay the tax on it, if there is profit at the end of the year.  

For married Veterans filing jointly, we can earn up to 32,000 per year and still owe no federal income tax.   However, Veterans on TDIU should report "earned" income.  The IRS has specific rules on what is "earned" income and what is "investment" income.  

Fortunately the VA does not insist Vets be penniless in order to get compensation.  Veterans may well have done well in the past and set aside some of that money for retirement, and earn investment income.  Its even ok to take all or part of your VA retro check and invest it, and derive income from that.  As the saying goes, "Its your money..

invest it or squander it on what you want."

    • Additional 100% Disabled Veteran Benefits
      https://www.hadit.com/100-percent-total-and-permanent-service-connected-disability-additional-benefits/

      If you reach 100% P and T there are more benefits available to you. This is by no means an extensive list and we recommend calling the Veterans Affairs at 1-800-827-1000 with any questions about the following benefits.

      Check your state benefits here


      Dental treatment for 100% disabled veteran benefits.


      Educational Assistance for Dependents: (under chapter 35) Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Civilian health and medical program for dependents/survivors (CHAMPVA). Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Specially Adapted Homes


      Veterans Mortgage Life Insurance: Decreasing term mortgage insurance up to $90,000 for veterans who have received a Specially Adaptive Housing grant and have an existing mortgage.


      Waiver of cost of Service Disabled life Insurance: and additional $20,000 of life insurance at cost to veteran. Veteran must have applied for insurance within two years of initial disability rating or within two years of a new disability rating. An increase in a disability rating does not qualify as a new disability.


      Commissary and Exchange privileges for veteran and dependents: The veteran must request a letter from the VA specifying veteran is in receipt of 100% disability, and then applies for a military ID card at the nearest ID card issuing facility.


      Emergency treatment in non-VA facilities: if VA facilities are not available.


      Annual Eye exams and prescribed eye wear

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.
