Grand Traverse Co. Sheriff’s Office: Suspected Scam Just a Case of Miscommunication

A suspected scam that claimed to be raising money for the VFW turns out to be a case of miscommunication. 

America’s Carpet Barn says someone asked them last week for a $75 donation to the Cherryland VFW Post.

The store says when they asked for an address to put on the check, the woman couldn’t give them one.

They called the VFW post which told her they weren’t doing a fundraiser like that.

The Grand Traverse County Sheriff’s Office says it is not a scam, just miscommunication between the VFW office in Lansing and local VFWs.
