Fraud Warning for Camp LeJeune Cases

by | Feb 29, 2024 | Veterans' Issues |

The Navy and the Department of Justice (DOJ) have issued a fraud alert regarding Camp Lejeune cases. Since the implementation of the PACT Act, there has been a large increase in people and companies who are trying to defraud Veterans of their personal information and money.

The Navy and DOJ say the most common methods being used are fraudulent emails and telephone calls.  Further, the upswing in deception seems to be getting worse the closer it gets to the filing deadline for Camp Lejeune Justice Act (CLJA) cases.  The deadline to file is August 10, 2024.

In the meantime, here are some tips that the Navy has sent out:

  • The Justice Department and the Navy will never request money or payment from a filer
  • If represented by an attorney, direct all inquiries to them for verification
  • Authorized emails from the Navy will be sent from [email protected]. A filer can forward any email message to that address to verify authenticity
  • If a filer receives a phone call claiming to be from the CLCU or offering assistance with a claim, ask for the person’s name and position, then call the CLCU at (757) 241-6020 to verify
  • If represented by an attorney, the Justice Department and Navy will not contact a filer directly and will only contact them through the filer’s attorney.
