Tennessee Joins 24 Other States to Dissolve Deceptive Veterans Charity
tn.gov/Peg Broadcasting News Monday November 13, 2017

Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett, Tennessee Attorney General Herbert H. Slatery, III and law enforcement partners in 24 states announced a settlement with VietNow National Headquarters, Inc., an Illinois nonprofit corporation, resulting in the organization's termination. In March 2017, Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette alleged thousands of deceptive solicitation violations against VietNow for misrepresenting its charitable programs to donors through misleading telemarketing solicitation scripts. In its most recent financial statement, VietNow reported raising nearly $2 million nationwide; only 5 percent of funds raised went to charitable programs. Attorneys general in multiple states, including Tennessee, soon began their own investigations of VietNow, which will now end its operation. Upon dissolution, VietNow's remaining funds will be paid to two well-respected veterans charities, Fisher House Foundation and Operation Homefront. If you are aware of false, misleading or deceptive activity, please notify the Division of Charitable Solicitations, Fantasy Sports and Gaming at 1-800-861-7393 or (615) 741-2555.
