Be On the Look Out (BOLO)

Be on the look out for this fraudulent organization called the Veterans Support Organization. They have been active in our tri-state area collecting donations. While they are a 501(c)3 organization, much of what they do is suspect and are under investigation in a number of states. Check out the NY Fox 5 news report.
