ALERT: Someone Using DVNF’s Name in Phone Scam
Posted on:

Several weeks ago, it was brought to our attention that someone was trying to solicit donations over the phone who claimed to be a representative of Disabled Veterans National Foundation. At first we thought this may have been a case of mistaken identity, but more instances of this have been coming in lately.

DVNF is not soliciting donations over the phone, so if you receive a call from anyone requesting a donation, please be advised that this is not a representative of DVNF, and is someone attempting to use our name to scam people.

If you receive such a call please let us know immediately and if possible, send us the number of the caller to

One number that we know has been used to call people is (702) 749-0530. This number has been attempting to solicit donations on behalf of DVNF, as well as other charities in the past. See this link for information from other recipients of these calls:

Thank you for your understanding, and please let us know immediately if you receive such a call!

The Disabled Veterans National Foundation exists to provide critically needed support to disabled and at-risk veterans who leave the military wounded—physically or psychologically—after defending our safety and our freedom.

We achieve this mission by:

  • Offering direct financial support to veteran organizations that address the unique needs of veterans, and whose missions align with that of DVNF.
  • Providing supplemental assistance to homeless and low-income veterans through the Health & Comfort program and various empowerment resources.
  • Providing an online resource database that allows veterans to navigate the complex process of seeking benefits that they are entitled to as a result of their military service, as well as additional resources they need.
  • Serving as a thought leader on critical policy issues within the veteran community, and educating the public accordingly.
