A Message from Wright County Veteran Services:
Veterans are being warned about a scam that is ongoing dealing with the lawsuit against 3M over defective hearing protection used by our military. 3M is the parent company of the firm that manufactured the hearing protection and has agreed to pay $6 billion in damages. Scammers have seized on the opportunity to attempt to gather Social Security Numbers and personal data while posing as the law firm representing veterans. This a reminder not to share SSNs, financial data or other personal data unless absolutely necessary and you are 100 percent certain who is on the other end of the communication.
