If you think that this 1 organization is a scam I can give you the names of several more. The biggest problem in this country right now is the fact that senior citizens are preyed upon by these people and when they give, they get more responses to give more. I have a family member in an AFC with dementia who prior to living there wrote literally thousands of dollars worth of checks to these kinds of 'charities.' She practically blew through her savings and was basically told by the USPS in her town that she had to figure something else with her mail because the volume of mail was so overwhelming they couldn't put it in her PO box. When I changed her address she continues to get mail, albeit not the volume she was receiving. When I checked in to this I found out that there are lists of names out there being sold on the open market for a price. I just want someone to tell me how we can stop this. Thanks for the time.
