Attorney General Warns Of Fraudulent Charities During Holiday Season

With the holiday season upon us, Attorney General Greg Stumbo is cautioning you against fraudulent charities.

On Dec. 6 Stumbo's office launched an updated website which allows consumers to see what percentage of their charitable donations actually go towards a charity versus how much is paid to professional solicitors or other fundraising expenses.

You can find this website by clicking here.

And before you give to a charity this holiday season, the Attorney General's Office reminds you to gather as much information as possible about an organization.


  • Pressuring you to make a donation.
  • Refusing to send you written material or financial information.
  • The person offers to send a courier to collect your contribution.
  • The charity sends you an invoice or statement indicating a payment you never pledged.
  • And the organization's name and logo closely resembles another charity with a similar charitable purpose.
