VA may owe veterans millions in refunds but knowingly hasn't paid them for years, probe finds

VA may owe disabled veterans millionsMore than 50,000 disabled veterans could be owed as much as $190 million in refunds from the Department of Veterans Affairs for home loan fees they were wrongly charged or no longer owe, an investigation has found.
