Job Seekers BEWARE!
A company calling itself Monument Secure (NOT Monument Security) is
sending out emails targeting veterans. Claiming that they are a Security
Services provider, they pretend to be hiring security personnel, but
require a “refundable” $300.00 to obtain a “guard card”. If you see them

On August 9, 2012,
the California Attorney General filed a civil lawsuit seeking
the removal of officers and directors of Help Hospitalized Veterans,
a California charity. The complaint alleges that those running the
organization engaged in self-dealing, paid excessive executive
compensation and engaged in fraudulent fundraising and other
unlawful activities. The lawsuit also seeks to recover more than
$4.3 million in funds improperly diverted from Help Hospitalized
Veterans. Those funds were meant to support several programs serving
veterans and active-duty military, including providing arts and
craft kits to hospitalized veterans. Instead, they were used to
enrich the organization's officers and fundraisers.

Ms. May has claimed via E-Mail that she has over
40 investors and plans to make millions of dollars.
My question to those investors, have you actually
seen the test performed? Have you actually seen the
laboratory? Have you actually seen the registered
patent for this test of Ms. May’s?
If you’ve been one of the past victims and
actually received written “test results”, do you see
the laboratory name clearly printed at the top or
bottom of the report with their address, phone and
fax number? Do you see an FDA “CLEA” number printed
on the report? If not, then I’d say you were scammed
by a sink lab operation!
I wanted to bring some truly good news to light,
and at the same time say a huge thank you to some
folks who helped put this all together!
Recently it came to me that a Ms. Linda May of
Pontiac Illinois was attempting to peddle a test kit
and lab testing to elderly and veterans that could
detect dioxin's from Agent Orange and would help in
VA Claims and how she was an expert in her field and
had testified for many veterans and helped them win
In addition she was claiming many other outrageous
things as contracts with the DoD, the VA, EPA, OSHA,
etc. and would never provide any written
documentation, evidence or medical research.
Ms. May talks a good game and I'm sure many of you
who served in Korea and Viet Nam were at one point
touched by AO, or have fellow vets who have and in
many cases are ill, terminal or have since passed on
havingapplied for benefits and been denied.

called the number associated with the address.
- I attempted to contact LKM Health and Safety
Consultants’ landline phone was disconnected but the
cell phone number (used a Maryland prefix) was
operational. I called the Cell phone number 8 times

any of my calls.

the Illinois State University to conduct the urine
tests. I called the university, but no one
associated with Linda K May was given access to
university facilities. Universities have to be very
careful when granting access to facilities for a
