Unless an individual or organization is accredited with the VA, they cannot complete, assist, or consult on any VA application.
A number of financial firms, with official sounding names and holding themselves as a veterans service organization but do little more than sell annuities. Some of these organizations arrange for very inexpensive Veterans Trusts and perhaps even pay third parties to complete the VA application, which is prohibited by law, just to be able to sell an annuity (which may or may not be the right product for the client).
Unless an individual or organization is accredited with the VA, they cannot complete, assist, or consult on any VA application. Even if accredited, they cannot make their service contingent on any fee or purchase of a service or product, i.e. annuity.
If you believe that a company, or anyone else, is breaking the law, mail or fax to the Office of General Counsel a copy of their advertisement, website, or anything else that shows that they are breaking the law. In addition, call the state bar association in the state where the individual or organization is located and ask that they be investigated for practicing law without a license.
Additionally, contact the Attorney General's office in the state where they are located and ask that they be investigated for consumer fraud.
