Local authorities arrested a man Tuesday who they said ran a scam in multiple counties.

James Bay, 53, is accused of falsely raising donations for what he claims is for the Disabled American Veterans fund, said police.  Authorities said Bay would sell television for $125, but he would never produce the TVs to the purchasers.

The scams occurred in multiple counties, including Marion and Morgan counties.

    Our business has been contacted numerous times by these folks, and the same number shows up as Hoosier Paralyzed Veterans. I always ask for them to contact us via e-mail or fax with their request, documentation, etc. knowing that it's all a scam.

    Anyone who impersonates or in any other way misrepresents our veterans is utterly disgraceful and unpatriotic. These people should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Better yet, put him in a room with a bunch of irate veterans and then prosecute him if there's anything left of him!
