How does a person go about exposing a fraudulent charity? From a legal standpoint, I don’t even know how much I should say about the situation.
This charity is supposed to fund something that hits REALLY close to home, so I appreciate all of the help.
So, to be brief - the charity is set up under a 501©(3). I think the money was initially being used for its proper purpose, but the project ended a few years ago.
Now, the money is either being used for completely unrelated projects, or worse - just going into this person’s pocket. I got this info secondhand from someone I trust completely, and I understand why they don’t want to be the whistleblower.
So, hopefully a careful examination of the paper trail is all that’s needed. But who do I go to? I want take this person down - not just play phone tag with some agency without anything ever happening…and not get sued in the process.
Again, thanks for anything you can add. I know we’ve got some very intelligent people here, but more importantly I know we’ve got a lot of people here interested in making sure justice gets done. I’m not sure how much I’ll be able to be online this weekend for more clarification, but I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
