We have discussed this before.............gotta be careful what % of your donations actually go to what they claim with ANY charity.

    I am guessing that it won't be a jury trial.

    Not when they can't even decide if there will be actual charges. Hey, "The money's been spent", right?

    When folks do this sort of thing, they need to end up paupers. Homeless, penniless, with nothing to their name but the clothes on their backs. The issue is that, so long as SOME money goes to what it's supposed to go to, then it's hard to say they weren't doing what they said they'd do.

    When being a 'good' charity means that only 2/3 of the money coming in goes to 'admin' costs, you know something is seriously wrong.:bang:

    Hmmmmm.................Knoxville, TN..................A seething cesspool of crooks infest that place. Knoxville would be one of 4 cities in TN that would not surprise me that something like this happened. They are a deep blue infestation surrounded by a sea of deep red, sorta like a pimple on a sunburned butt. :roll2:

    When considering a charity of any kind, it's best to check out their financials thoroughly. That info is online and isn't hard to find. As to the people running that mess, they need to be put in prison for a while. Too bad Brushy Mountain isn't in operation anymore.

    Fraud: The New American Way

    Seriously, none of these guys ever spend a day of jail in prison. Steal thousands and go away for years, steal millions and get slapped on the wrist, steal billions and get handed a golden parachute!


    It don't happen often, but I'm in full agreement. I'd be surprised if anything more than a fine (which is really just a government payoff) is what happens here.

    I saw this today. I certainly do not know the legal ramifications of this.
    Fraud is a difficult crime to prosecute. Too many ins-and outs associated with it

    All that some do to is have similar names to nationally known charity organizations, sometimes only changing one word in the name to dupe folks. It pays to check them ALL out. One of these groups actually put less than 3% toward cancer research/victims.

    Well, if they are a non profit and it can be determined they acted outside of their tax exemption there could be charges.

    But...the law doesn't apply to anyone above the now non existing middle class.
