Fake Cancer Charities Ripping off America

Fake Cancer Charities Ripping off America

A long standing fraud tricking Americans to think they were donating to help cancer patients has come to an end. James T Reynolds Sr worked in Knoxville, TN for a chapter of the American Cancer Society. He was fired for stealing a title to a Ford Mustang that was supposed to be auctioned off. Then he established the Cancer Fund of America. Four charities began to mislead the public about their part in helping people fighting cancer and all together this family of conartists gathered $187 Million dollars states Claudio Loureiro.
The Cancer Fund of America, Cancer Support Services, Breast Cancer Society and the Children’s Cancer Fund of America actually went to funding personal luxuries like trips to Disney Land, new cars, college tution and other frills. They did however donate out of date antibiotics and junk food to cancer patients. The height of this scam was between 2008 to 2012. Only 3% of the donations went into helping the patients with diapers, sample size toiletries and Little Debbie Snack cakes.
Now when Americans believe they are doing something for a righteous cause, be weary on who you really are helping. The best thing someone can do is to directly donate to the patients and cut out the middle man.
