TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—Attorney General Pam Bondi issued the following statement regarding the multi-state, multi-agency investigation, called “Reveal the Deal,” into Allied Veterans of the World.
“It is shameful that Allied Veterans of the World allegedly attempted to use the guise of a charitable organization to help veterans in order to lend credibility to this $300 million illegal gambling scheme,” stated Attorney General Pam Bondi. “The Office of Statewide Prosecution will be filing formal charges related to illegal gambling, racketeering and money laundering, and they will prosecute the participants in the scheme to the fullest extent of the law.”
