California Attorney General Rob Bonta met with Navy leaders at Naval Base San Diego Friday to discuss some of the most prevalent scams targeting service members.

The roundtable discussion centered on predatory schemes affecting sailors in San Diego, where the Attorney General’s office said service members are especially vulnerable to being targeted due to the large concentration of military personnel.

One such scheme perpetrated locally involved a company offering supposed free income tax preparation services for military members. The company, Go Navy Tax Services, operated out of a trailer located just outside Naval Base San Diego’s front gate and persuaded service members to purchase retirement accounts.

However, prosecutors say that rather than opening those accounts, the defendants used the service members’ personal information to open life insurance policies without their knowledge or consent, earning the company more than $2 million in commissions stemming from the sales of nearly 5,000 applications for life insurance policies and annuity contracts.

Three people involved in the scheme recently pleaded guilty and were sentenced.
