A Friend from New York found a great case which speaks volume of the need to reform the telefundraising industry.  The Case is: The People of the State of New York v Coalition Against Breast Cancer, Campaign Center, Inc. et al. (It was filed in New York on June 27, 2011.)

 

You can read this case by opening the great new york case. pdf.  Thanks for your interest and support.

      *A concerned woman from Massachusetts had this to say about the
case: Kudos to the generous benefactor of this information and hopefully this can/will help us in Massachusetts.
 I'm only too miffed as to the small relief requested by the AG. Even though this was filed, the relief was so small, there was no punishment attached...much akin to the proverbial "slap on the wrist".
  Oh well, it only goes to show even though some AG's are on board and as in this case, filed suit, nothing short of all those people spending the rest of their lives behind bars would be sufficient. …D.T., Massachusetts

 Dear NCF Supporters: What follows, as an attachment, is my write-up of a telefundraising call that I received on March 8, 2012 from “Jim” of “All-Pro” (fundraising company) calling for “The Massachusetts Fraternal Order of Police” (charity). I have also included a copy of the attachment (Form 11A Massachusetts Filing) which I reference in the letter. Beneath these attachments  in black type, are comments from NCF supporters – the voice of donor nation.  -- Pearl Cohen, Founder NCF.

      *I get these calls from this organization every year in spite of me continually
telling them not to.I have also reported them to the AG's office,twice,and they
still continue.This email gives me a little more info and ammunition when,and
I'm sure he will, calls again.Thanks.  -- Jeff Brune, Massachusetts

 

     *Your research is right on target!  This is such a good example of the problem.  Thanks for passing it on.

     *I left a job in 1986 and started a DBA business as an I.T.  Consultant/Trainer.  I signed up with a county Business development   agency, rented a room, got a P.O. box, a phone, a checking account and  took out 1 yellow pages ad. One day I got a call from some local "policeman's something association" and volunteered to donate.  They asked if they could come by and pick up the check and I said sure. Every year since I've gotten one or two calls [like yours] and the association varies.  I've told them to
remove my name and that I only give to the local  police department's D.A.R.E. [anti-drug education] program.
   It never stops.
   I'm sure the fundraising companies recycle my name and number. From their point of view "he's a live one!"
L.K., New York
