“Many charities do amazing work in our communities but when charitable donations are misused, people in need suffer and consumers lose confidence in giving,” Roy Cooper, North Carolina Attorney General, said. “We took action to protect consumers from these fraudulent charities and restore their trust in legitimate ones.”
Secretary of State Elaine Marshall added, "This settlement forces these sham charities into dissolving, liquidates the known assets in the case, and bans this shameful bunch from ever running another nonprofit."
