This is a really big deal. There are far too many scam charities out there in this world. This video and a link to the official press release came with a note from an Assistant New York Attorney General:
I thought you’d be interested in this…..And thank you for assisting us in the investigation.
I was one of the people who had been contacted by this non-profit (and one of thousands who complained about phone calls from bogus breast cancer charities) and was one of the every day people who cooperated with the efforts of the New York State Attorney General’s Bureau of Charities investigation.
Why I am posting this here? Because every day someone gets a call from a cold caller. This is yet another reason to not take their calls. Legitimate charities are not going to pay oodles of money each year to cold calling companies to press innocent people on making donations to an organization they have never heard of. I started getting calls about this fake breast cancer charity within days of my partial mastectomy six years ago. When they called, they already knew I was a “survivor”. To this day, I do not know how they got my name or information.
Anyway, I think this is pretty cool. Even in today’s world sometimes the white hats actually prevail.
