Posted on October 28, 2011


USA: Update on the fraudlent donation we received two weeks ago today. The Chronicle of Philanthropy took note of our press release and followed up with their own warning to public charities. Reporter Holly Hall phoned Dana Burchfield, Assistant Controller at Purvin & Gertz in Houston, Texas, and learned that the unathorized checks are still going out across the US. They range from $1900 to $7200. No word yet on who is doing this, or what the motive might be, so stay alert. Read the Chronicle’s posting here.
