Fake Vet's Charities and the FTC

Postby Bkeepr » Fri Jul 20, 2018 6:24 am

There are a lot of fake charities out there, many right now are targeting folks who want to do something for Vets. Article below is about government efforts to shut the down, including one story about a guy who raised $11M in a short period of time--for himself--in Veteran's name.

I guess my point is: be careful, be smart about who you donate to. There are lots of scammers out there, amongst the *many* great charities...many wolves in the flock.
