Is American Veterans Foundation legit?
Sorry, but they are not listed by Charity Watch, had posted only partial financial information, and do not appear to meet the test of a legitimate charity. There are many groups that partially copy the name of a legitimate charity. If I may be permitted to make a referral, I support Fisher House. Listed as one of the 10 best charities in the US, they provide no cost group living and group meals for families of American service members that are visiting their family member in a military hospital.
they helped out in 9-11 the fought for our freedoms and they are fighting right now for each and every one of us.. They fought because it was the right thing to do.
they should be honored because they protect our country they kept us safe some veterans die after injuies happen days even months after being injuied
by giving us freedom or extending our little freedom we have at the moment..

"You need about as much protection for this kind of leak as you do from a meteorite."
Absolutely Not!!! These people are falsely impersonating a Transfer Agent that is acting Transfer Agent for the issuing of Dixon, Perot and Champion Shares. This is nothing o…ther than an " Advanced Payment Scheme". If you have been contacted or have fallen victim to these people's scheme of paying for lifting a Restriction on your shares, please contact your bank immediately and reteact your funds. They are having funds sent to CITIBANK, New York, to the Beneficiary of CredutCard Services Company SAL, FBO: CCS&L CSC00099780001. Please contact the Toronto Fraud Squad at +1 (416) 808-7300 to report these con artists!
(This is one particular persons personal experience, you cannot assume this about all of them.)* (Original Answer: No, they are scam artists. They give you a phone numbe…r to call 202 area code, the person claims to be a federal officer, with consumer protection agency. I called him a liar and he said "I did not make the call" well of course he didn't, the guy from American Sweepstakes Network did. So I told him they had both broken the federal law as my name is on the federal do not call registry. He hung up on me. How Politically correct is that if he was a federal officer. Don't listen to any prize promise EVER!! They are all scams and once they have you listening, they become professional liars.)
American Veterans Aid (AVA) was founded by a war era veteran who wanted to help other veterans and their surviving spouses apply for and receive the Aid and Attendance Benefit…. AVA is a privately owned for profit company and charges a reasonable fee for its service, called a Pre-Filing Consultation. The purpose of the Consultation is to determine the Claimant's eligibility and in many cases assist those who are ineligible to become eligible. The company has a 100% money back guarantee - if the claimant is denied his or her Benefit by the VA, any fee paid to AVA is fully refunded. The company has a VA accredited Claims Agent on staff to help the Claimants prepare and present their VA application forms to the VA and represent them before the VA Claims Board. There is no charge for this part of the service. The Claims Agent is only 1 of 99 in the country who can do this. For a claimant who is overqualified for VA Benefits due to having too much in assets, AVA will assist them with moving a portion of the assets into a protected account. With the money now in the protected account, AVA does not require the claimant to purchase any type of investment, such as annuities, certificates of deposit, bonds, or funeral trusts. The Claimant always has a choice of either paying AVA a reasonable fee for it's services or taking AVA's financial advice in repositioning a portion of the assets into safe, conservative, and secure investments. Thus, if the Claimant chooses to reposition their assets, the financial institutions who conduct these transactions will pay AVA a commission. AVA is proud of it's service to the many veterans and surviving souses across the nation. The company looks forward to many more years of helping those who served our nation receive the Benefits they deserve.

My name is Hallie Powell and I am the Executive Director of theNational Vietnam Veterans Foundation, of which the AmericanVeterans Support Foundation is a special project. We …are aregistered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The work we do for thousands of Veterans is not offered by otherorganizations and is necessary to help many of those in need getthrough tough times. We are often the only organization thatresponds to emails of desperation. If we don't help, people wouldsuffer. Whether it is donating blankets to the homeless, givingmoney to a starving Veteran who lives out of his car, or paying forcar repairs to help a group of Veterans get to the grocery storeand doctor appointments, if there is a need, we help in whateverway we can. Please see our Annual Report on the National VietnamVeterans Foundation website to see a description of some of ourwork. As a small nonprofit, we must rely on telephone fundraisers as oneavenue of donation in order to help Veterans and their families whoare in need. Unfortunately for us, telephone fundraising is veryexpensive, as it is run by for-profit fundraising companies.However, this is the only way we are able to help so many in ourcurrent capacity. We utilize all available resources to get the jobdone. Since 2014, we have made it a goal to expand to other methods offundraising and increase the percentages we can give directly toVeterans. We added PayPal to our website, began applying to grantopportunities, and contacted corporate donors. Should you donatethrough PayPal or directly to the address listed on our website(2020 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, #336, Washington, DC 20006), we donot have to pay the high fees associated with telephonefundraising. These other methods of donating will help our programpercentages in the future. If you should have questions about our work or have possibleproblems with our telephone fundraisers, please feel free tocontact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many reliable sources say it's a scam. But even if it weren't, the odds of a person actually winning big money in a sweepstakes are very, very small.
I'm a "life member" of DAV and it is a total disaster. I was originally told by the DAV "Service Officer" in Spokane that I had to pay for a life membership in order for him …to assist me in my disability claim with the VA. I paid over $200. to get this life membership, returned to the DAV Service Officer, who then informed me that he could not assist me because I had an attorney. I did NOT have an attorney and told him this, however :"his system" said that I did. I requested a refund from the DAV on this scam and was denied my refund. This was in 2007. I contacted the DAV again in November 2012 to see information on possible grants to change my heating system over from gas to electric due to my Agent Orange. I sent an email for assistance with no response. I placed a call to their headquarters, reached their auto voice mail and requested another refund of my membership. I was then contacted by email from Robert Lougee, the Service Officer in Seattle who told me to call him for help with "my claim". I called his number today, was told that he was the supervisor by 2 female associates and was not available to me. I explained that I was looking for information and I was then informed that I was NOT in the DAV system. I gave them my "Life Time Membership Number" and they again said I was not in their system. What a scam. DON'T listen to this organization who will take your money and DO NOTHING to support you. What a joke.
