VA hospital says storefront solicitor scammed donors

Someone not associated with a veterans organization has been soliciting donations in the center’s name for the past few months in Johnson County.

Employees at the Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center have received 12 calls in recent months from angry residents who had given money to the person and but had not received a donation receipt or a raffle prize as they were promised, medical center executive assistant Julie Webb said.

The residents said the person soliciting donations in the center’s name was standing in front of stores asking for money and selling raffle tickets, Webb said.
