The Federal Trade Commission is accusing four cancer charities of fraud.

The charities are the Cancer Fund of America, Cancer Support Services, Children’s Cancer Fund of America and the Breast Cancer Society. . .

The four charities are accused of bilking consumers of more than $187 million and using the money for cars, trips, luxury cruises, college tuition, gym memberships, jet ski outings, sporting events and concert tickets, and dating-site memberships.

Always review your charities before donating. There are some good watchdogs out there who investigate non-profits. Too many pay too high executive salaries and have very high expenses.

True, even huge charities have been guilty of mismanagement or misuse of funds.

Sad that they would party on funds intended for those fighting cancer.

Shouldn't this be in the Soapbox?

Definitively research any charity before donating. Scammers are everywhere, be vigilant.
