NC attorney general announces ban on two charities

All 50 states have joined the Federal Trade Commission in announcing a permanent injunction against two phony cancer charities. The order will effectively shut down Cancer Fund of America and Cancer Support Services, INC. Their leader, James Reynolds Sr., is banned from fundraising and non-profit work. The sham charities claimed to help cancer patients and used misleading phone calls, but spent the vast majority of money on themselves and friends or professional fundraisers. The organizations must now pay more than $75 million, to be donated to real cancer charities. North Carolinians were defrauded to the tune of about $1 million.
