Review for University Of Natural Medicine, Santa Fe, NM, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Crooked business run by a crook named Adiel Tel-Oren who CLAIMS TO BE a medical doctor.

However, he has surrendered his medical license, because he had sex with a patient, among many other transgressions, and is merely licensed as a nutritionist now. (See http://web.archive.org/web/20120227085216/http://www.mn-chiroboard.state.mn.us/Orders/SO%20Tel-Oren,%20Adiel%2009%2004%2009.pdf )

Read about him in the article entitled "Health Ministry warns public against ‘imposter’ posing as physician:
Ministry seeking more information on unlicensed medical practitioner in Israel, Adiel Tel-Oren." Find it here: http://www.jpost.com/Health-and-Science/Health-Ministry-warns-public-against-imposter-posing-as-physician-353113

He raises money through a variety of schemes. www.nepali-children.org is the site of the 'charity' that supposedly gets all the proceeds from the medical work he provides.
But he also claims to be President Emeritus & Professor of Nutrition and Functional Medicine at the University Of Natural Medicine
But both of these organizations share the same IRS-assigned EIN.
It's presented as a charity that he raises funds for... and yet money he raises and "donates" actually goes to a school that he seems to run as well - and elsewhere he shows off his titles at that 'school' as if they're impressive credentials.

Review for Guidestar, Williamsburg, VA, USA

Rating: 3 stars  

I've had a guidestar login for years. I wanted to write a review, and the process was horribly convoluted, and counterintuitive. It took 4 tries. I suggest the staff try to do the same with a new account, and experience it for themselves.

Unlikely

Review for Full Gospel Mission Ministries Inc, Hayward, CA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I got a neon green solicitation postcard last week (it's December 2011) that says, "Your gift is tax deductible. Hayward FULL GOSPEL MISSION MINISTRIES is a Registered 501(c)(3) charity in California" But this isn't true. Their 501(c)(3) status has been revoked, as this site details. It was sent via the USPS and says Nonprofit Org US Postage PAID HFGT, and I bet that's not legal.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization?

No
