Scamming in the name of War Veterans

Fraudsters in the Charity Racket

Scammers exist; they have always existed and always will. The NYTimes editorial on February 8th described the nefarious activities of one particular organization -- Coalition to Salute American Heroes (CSAH). Perhaps the same people who coined the unforgettable phrases "collateral damage" and "friendly fire" came up with the name but that is beside the point.

Before you contribute a penny to CSAH spend a few minutes checking how it spends your money. In the past there were reports about Frank Hudson, the then CEO of the Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of San Francisco, who spent contributions on botox injections to make himself look good, and then there were horror stories about mismanagement of funds by the people who ran Goodwill Industries of Santa Clara County, California. The United Way of America which receives support from local corporations had its share of problems with executives who misappropriated funds. The founders of Coalition to Salute American Heroes, however, win the prize for spending most of the money on salaries and perks for themselves.

Their sister organization is named "Help Hospitalized Veterans", HHV!


Please keep this story alive and running. The more people who see it the better. Not only will it point the way to donate with a watchful eye but it will, more importantly, put Mr. Chapin and his cronies out of business for once and for all. Thanks.
