From the Office of the Attorney General
Attorney General Doug Chin joined the U.S. Federal Trade Commission and other states in a complaint charging four sham cancer charities and their operators with bilking more than $187 million from consumers. In all, 36 states alleged that the defendants filed false and misleading financial statements with state regulators.
According to the complaint, the defendants told donors their money would help cancer patients, including children and women suffering from breast cancer, but the overwhelming majority of donations benefited only their paid fundraisers, perpetrators, their families and friends.
The defendants allegedly used telemarketing calls, direct mail, websites, and materials distributed by the Combined Federal Campaign, which raises money from federal employees for nonprofit organizations, to portray themselves as legitimate charities with substantial programs that provided direct support to cancer patients in the United States, such as providing patients with pain medication, transportation to chemotherapy and hospice care.
In today’s legal and economic climate, protecting board members, staff and the organization itself from claims is critical. HANO provides low-cost, high-quality D&O insurance. Read More
