NJ 9/11 Scammers Face Charges over Bogus Charity

Two New Jersey men who admitted operating a bogus 9/11 charity have been indicted on conspiracy and theft by deception charges.

Prosecutors say Thomas Scalgione of Stafford Township and Mark Niemczyk of Tinton Falls brought a custom-painted pickup truck to public events, where they sold T-shirts featuring the logos of the New York City police and fire departments.

The charges stem from an investigation the state conducted last year, which led to the men entering into a consent judgment that barred the men from charity work.

Niemczyk is also accused of failing to file a personal state income tax return in 2011.

The indictment was handed up Friday by a state grand jury and was made public Monday.
