I was shocked to see how much money was funneled into Richard Bermans pockets. This is a scam of the first order! They should have their non tax status pulled and be thrown in jail! This is not a charity, this is a scam!

I was attracted to this group by advertisements and looked into their operations. I found out that this group is run by the Washington Lobby Firm "Berman and Co." a firm that specializes in turning public opinion against groups like M.A.D.D., the Humane Society of the United States, the Center for Disease Control, and has tried to convince people that Mercury in fish is not harmful, second hand smoke is harmless, and they lobby against raising the minimum wage on behalf of restaurant owners.I also found out that 92% of donations go directly to "Berman and Co." as consulting fees. they have many non profit front groups that take in donations that in turn hire "berman and Co." as consultants. it's a total scam and they need to be shut down.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my friends try to tell me about these people after seeing their ads. I inform them what this org. is really doing is a scam.

I'm proud to have donated to this group. CFCF has done some great work exposing the ten's of thousands of animal deaths that PETA does annually. As a pet lover, I find it hard to believe that PETA puts tens of millions into ads annually while making no attempt to find pets homes and instead killing them. They are opposed to pets and think that dogs and cats should instead be running free in the "wild", so to instead of creating more pet owners, they'd rather kill the pets. CFCF among other groups is helping to get the word out about this.
