Imposter Pretending to Help Veterans Prosecuted

A California man fraudulently posed as a military officer and solicited donations that he claimed would be used for helping wounded Veterans and those suffering from conditions such as PTSD.  Under these pretenses he collected more than $94,000 from donors who thought they were helping Veterans. In fact, he used significant amounts of the money for personal expenses.  On April 12, he pleaded guilty to federal fraud charges.  He is scheduled to be sentenced on October 18th and faces a maximum sentence of 20 ½ years in federal prison.  To learn more, please see:  www.militarytimes.com/news/2010/04/ap_navy_faker_charges_041310/.
