LAKE COUNTY, Ohio (WJW) – The Lake County Ohio Veterans Service Office is alerting veterans about a scam.

According to the agency, the scam uses sophisticated technology that generates VA operating signatures, which makes it look like the call is coming from the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The scammers claim to be VA personnel and ask to verify personal information.

You should never provide personal information over the phone.
