The e-mail came just like so many offering to help Vet Owned Businesses:
I understand that (insert your business name here) is owned or operated by a U.S. Veteran. With this in mind, I am writing from
VetFriends.com to let you know about the unique Veterans Business Directory comprised of Veteran-owned &
operated businesses nationwide.

And on looking at their directory- I saw one of our VOBOhio members- so I thought, OK- this is legit. I continued to fill out the form- only to find this is nothing other than another attempt to extort money out of Vet Owned Businesses:

We’re already in CCR- and the VA and the SBA’s database- if that’s not enough, now there are vultures like “VetFriends” out trying to bamboozle us out of our hard earned money- to be listed on their lame-o website.
