Two convicted felons, including a Manahawkin man, defrauded the public by falsely soliciting donations for surviving family members of Sept. 11 victims, according to a lawsuit filed by the state Attorney General’s Office.
The two men were accused of driving around in a pickup truck painted with the names of first responders who perished in the collapse of the World Trade Center towers.
Thomas J. Scalgione, 40, of Manahawkin and Mark Anthony Niemczyk, 66, of Tinton Falls have been sued for allegedly operating an unregistered charity, according to a release from the attorney general’s office.
