CARTER COUNTY, Mo. (KFVS) - A elderly, disabled veteran was refunded for a chair lift company scam.

According to Attorney General Eric Schmitt, the veteran paid more than $2,000 to Ameriglide for installation of a chair lift in his home. The company never installed the lift and refused to refund his money.

Schmitt said the veteran was later mailed a check from the company.

This case was part of a new push by the attorney general, called the Safe Citizens Initiative, which will focus the office’s resources to protecting the state’s elderly and vulnerable.
