Illuminating Nonprofit Fraud

Yesterday, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and state charity officials announced more than 100 legal actions against charities that fraudulently claimed to be using donations to help veterans. The charges ranged from filing misleading information with regulators to diverting donations to organization leaders and paid fundraisers. A few nonprofits received warning letters. Others were fined heavily and ordered to dissolve.
