The Ohio Attorney General has ordered the U.S. Navy Veterans Association to cease fundraising in the state after finding what it says is false and misleading information in the charity's registration.

The Attorney General's Charitable Law Section investigated the organization and sent a letter to its listed directors outlining these violations of the state's requirements:

  • A USPS mailbox is listed as the primary business address.

  • Phone numbers for the organization's offices were not provided.

  • Addresses for directors, trustees and executive personnel were not provided.
