KENNEWICK, Wash. -- A new scam artist uses your support of American troops to take your money. The group ACES, or American Citizens Encourage Support, welcomes troops back home and sends packages to troops over seas.
But, they say recently a man has been calling people saying that he is from the group and asking people for money. But, ACES' James Wetzel says the group never raises money through phone calls.
Wetzel says ACES raises money at festivals and other events, not by phone. He says it is important that this scam is stopped quickly so that ACES credibility, as a troop support group, stays strong.
