Description

An investigation by the Cleveland Plain Dealer reveals that Ohio's attorney general inflated her restitution figures "by at least $2.5 million." The newspaper's investigation "showed how not just that her office puffed its numbers but how: It took credit for refunds secured by other agencies, included refund offers from companies that consumers never accepted, inflated the dollar value of refunds and counted refunds that companies promised but never delivered."
