Sham Cancer Charities Busted
http://rt.com/usa/260117-ftc-fraud-cancer-charities/

It's a shame, it's a sham, and this shit happens way too much.

Sham cancer charities bilked donors for $187 mil, spent money on luxury – gov’t

Government regulators have cracked down on four cancer charities, accusing the Cancer Fund of America, Cancer Support Services, the Children's Cancer Fund of America, and the Breast Cancer Society of cheating donors out of $187 million.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), all 50 states, and the District of Columbia claim that the four foundations fraudulently told donors their money would help cancer patients. Instead, money from the donations overwhelmingly went into the pockets of charity operators, their families and friends, and professional fundraisers.

According to the complaint filed by authorities, the charities “operated as personal fiefdoms characterized by rampant nepotism, flagrant conflicts of interest, and excessive insider compensation, with none of the financial and governance controls that any bona fide charity would have adopted.”

The complaint further alleges that the charity executives employed family members and friends, and spent the donated funds on “cars, trips, luxury cruises, college tuition, gym memberships, jet ski outings, sporting event and concert tickets, and dating site memberships.” Professional fundraisers hired by the charities often received 85 percent or more of every donation, the FTC said.

“Cancer is a debilitating disease that impacts millions of Americans and their families every year. The defendants’ egregious scheme effectively deprived legitimate cancer charities and cancer patients of much-needed funds and support,” said Jessica Rich, Director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection.

“The defendants took in millions of dollars in donations meant to help cancer patients, but spent it on themselves and their fundraisers,” added Rich.

Two of the charities, Children's Cancer Fund of America (CCFOA) and the Breast Cancer Society (BCS), have agreed to settle with the government. Under the proposed settlement orders, their presidents and executive directors “will be banned from fundraising, charity management, and oversight of charitable assets, and CCFOA and BCS will be dissolved,” said the FTC.

Under the settlement, CCFOA will have to pay a $30 million fine, and the BCS will have to pay $65.5 million, corresponding to the amounts they collected from donors between 2008 and 2012. Litigation will continue against the Cancer Fund of America (CFA) and Cancer Support Services (CSS), and their president, James Reynolds Sr.

The explanation posted on the BCS homepage, signed by their executive director James T. Reynolds II, says that the organization and its officers “have not been found guilty of any allegations of wrong doing, and the government has not proven otherwise,” but that they had decided not to engage in a “highly publicized, expensive, and distracting legal battle around our fundraising practices.”

Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring explained that this was the first time the FTC, all 50 states and the District of Columbia have filed a joint complaint, adding he hoped this would serve as a “strong warning for anyone trying to exploit the kindness and generosity of others.”

“The allegations of fundraising for personal gain in the name of children with cancer and women battling breast cancer are simply shameful,” Herring said.

RE: Sham Cancer Charities Busted
i was just about to post this. Confirms what i've been saying for a long time.

ONLY DONATE TO CATHOLIC CHARITIES. 90% of funds deployed to the actual cause. research it.

Philanthropy, Charity in the modern world is mostly a scam. it's a sick scam at that.

When I was back in Canada I did some shopping at Wal-Mart. After the lady rang me up she said 'Would you like to add a dollar to give the children?'

I asked what she was talking about and she said it was for a children's charity, so I asked what children were getting the money and how much of each dollar donated actually went to the children and not to the charity.

She had no idea, of course. I suggested she look into it.

They say that only about 3% of the donated money actually went to helping cancer patients. That's even worse than the Clinton Foundation's actual donation percentages.

^ good call. I never donate to any causes unless it's directly on the ground. I donate to dog rescue places, but only independents where I can see the dogs. I mostly just buy food and supplies.

I trust catholic charities because they have consistently ranked the highest in deployment.

You also should be told what causes those charities give to. A lot of them, such as United Way, give millions to planned parenthood.

Pam Anderson during that Ice Bucket Challenge brought up how much animal testing they do for ALS research with no results, so they're just torturing animals.

I've raised millions for Oxfam and cancer research in my lifetime and it's kind of left a bitter taste in my mouth.

In Hong Kong, every MTR station is clogged with people out front asking for money for charity.

It's a pretty slick racket.

RE: Sham Cancer Charities Busted
they prey on your western/teutonic altruism. .and your guilt ridden softened christian spirit.

seriously these shameless idiots deserve to be jailed.

this is worse than even straight conjobs.. they are preying on your good conscience.. then they use that money to throw lavish parties and jet set around the world.

and to top it all of.. they put "philanthropist" on their business card after using YOUR MONEY to party and travel.

i'm glad the whole scam is being revealed. I laugh at people who say they will donate to most charities.

you are seriously better off giving a bum 10 bucks rather than giving it to a homeless charity. at least the bum can enjoy some booze.

it's slick because if you scrutinize them you are seen as a cold heartless bastard. you don't ask questions and just give them money.

this is the reality that people don't want to hear. but hey keep thinking the vatican is full of baby eaters:

Quote:2011 American Institute of Philanthropy: Catholic Relief Services was named a top-rated charity and given the rating of A+ by AIP for efficiently using the majority of funds toward programming versus fundraising.
2011 Better Business Bureau/Wise Giving Alliance: CRS was found to meet all 20 Standards for Charity Accountability, which take into account an organization’s governance, financial accountability, truthfulness and transparency. The September 2011 audit found that only 2% of the CRS's expenses were for administration, leaving 3% for fundraising and 95% for program costs.

the funny thing is they help the most needy. people that need food and medical assistance in the here and now.

no abstract social engineering stuff. just straight up soup kitchens and free medical care.

this is what they do.. you got no water? they give you water.. immediate needs

[Image: 244149-preview-pressemitteilung-caritas-...awande.jpg]

they were also first responders in Japan during the tsunami crises. Knights of Malta and Caritas International were on the ground right away giving away supplies. no strings attached, you dont' have to convert to catholicism.

its' not easy to become catholic anyways, you need to take classes and do all sorts of stuff.
