The Charity Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing!

Charity Frauds and Scams from Favorite Things for a CAUSEIt is not uncommon to hear about bogus charities popping up after some tragic event has hit a community, city, state or in national proportions. Why do people do this? Quite obviously to take advantage of people’s generosity and to prey on the vulnerable.

We try to understand how and why individuals could do such heinous things to quite honestly, steal from those who need it the most. Pretending to be an organization working in the best interest of the victims, yet having evil intentions to fool donors, is about as lowdown as you can get.

Such is the case with the tragedy that occurred in Boston this week during the Boston Marathon festivities. It not only breaks our hearts, but infuriates us that during a celebration where parents brought their children and runners from around the country embarked in downtown Boston to enjoy a day of fun and for runners, personal achievement, a calculated evil act destroyed all of that.

Of course, like everyone else, we hope that those who are responsible for terrorizing, endangering, harming and murdering innocent people in Boston and everywhere else, will be brought to justice. Sooner or later, they will face the consequences of their actions.

In the meantime, we ask that you be cautious and wise in your contributions to those victims who suffered in Boston this week, as well as any other charitable collections, wherever they may be. It’s sad that we have to scrutinize and watch to whom we are giving to, all because of the charity-seeking rogues dressed in sheep’s clothing.
