A settlement with VietNow National Headquarters has resulted in the organization’s termination.
In March 2017, thousands of deceptive solicitation violations against VietNow were alleged for misrepresenting its charitable programs. Donors were misled through the 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.
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.
