Attorney General Pam Bondi is recognizing Military Consumer Protection Month with tips for active-duty military, veterans and their families. This year’s Military Consumer Protection Month is dedicated to raising awareness about scams targeting or harming those who serve our country. Floridians generously donate to military and veterans’ charities. However, not all charities are legitimate. Some solicit donations by falsely promising to provide services to our military and veterans.
“I am honored that so many members of our Armed Forces and military veterans call Florida home. As a state, we need to do everything in our power to protect those who risk so much to protect us,” said Attorney General Bondi. “Last year we launched our Military and Veterans Assistance Program to provide additional resources to our brave service members, veterans and their families, and we will continue to do everything we can to make Florida the best state for our military heroes.” More
