MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The Better Business Bureau is warning veterans about a pair of scams.

A spokesperson for the group says one scam offers to purchase veteran’s benefits with a lump sum, but only giving about 30 to 40 percent of the entitled amount.

The group says that Memorial Day is also a time to remember to watch out for scrupulous individuals asking for a charitable donation, adding that research should be done before giving any money.
