John Wardell Chesapeake Benefits Group CBGHelps.com This guy claimed to work for the VA and charged my mom $500 for help she can get for free from the real VA Arnold Maryland

*Consumer Comment: Excellent Experience with John Wardell
*REBUTTAL Owner of company: ???
I live out of state, my mom found this guy, John Wardell of Chesapeake Benefits Group who claimed to work for the VA and he said he would help her get Veterans benefits from the VA to pay for my Dad's care. My Dad was in World War II. He charged her $500 for his "advice".
His brilliant advice ended in a denial from the VA after a long wait and many letters back and forth with the VA. We went back to Chesapeake Benefits Group for help and mysteriously the calls were not returned in any kind of timely manner and in the end all we heard was excuses.
I spoke with the Veterans Service Officer where I live and found out that John Wardell does not work for the VA, it is illegal for him to charge even $1.00 for assistance, and he gave my Mom and Dad bad advice about their finances to begin with.
I have checked around we should have either gone with a company that does not charge or gone to a county service officer who could have helped my family for FREE.
Beware - John Wardell is acting illegally by charging, he won't help if there is a problem, and he is not working on behalf of the Veterans Administration. DO NOT PAY FOR ADVICE WITH VETERANS BENEFITS!!!
