COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's attorney general says two Columbus men agreed to stop what he says were illegal charitable solicitations for a veterans group.
Attorney General Mike DeWine said Wednesday the agreement prohibits the men from serving with charitable organizations in Ohio and from conducting or participating in charitable solicitations for organizations in the state.
DeWine says the nonprofit Just 4 Vets hired one of the men to raise money for the group that helps veterans and their families. That fundraiser was assisted by the second man and others they recruited. DeWine says Just 4 Vets never received any money collected in donations solicited in front of various stores at least 12 times since November.
The men could face financial penalties if they don't comply with the agreement.
