Beware of Mesothelioma Scams

Many people who have developed mesothelioma or will develop it in the future were exposed to asbestos while in the military, particularly, the U.S. Navy. At a time when our veterans should be most honored and cared for, many people are targeting them for mesothelioma scams. If you are a veteran of the military or a family member of a veteran, beware of solicitations claiming to get you money after a mesothelioma diagnosis or even supplements to relieve or even cure mesothelioma.

VA Pharmacy Scams

Some veterans have reported receiving calls and other forms of solicitations from people claiming to be with the VA Pharmacy. The caller would ask the veteran for their billing information so their prescriptions could be updated. These types of solicitations are a scam and something veterans and their families should be aware of.

Mesothelioma Supplement Scams

Some veterans reported getting solicitations touting the benefits of various supplements for treating and managing pain associated with mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is an aggressive form of cancer that cannot be treated by supplements, particularly non-FDA regulated substances. If you have received a solicitation about a mesothelioma supplement, beware and contact your doctor if you have questions.
