The Supreme Court will hear a case this week questioning whether or not a telemarketing company that only gave 15% of the money they raised to the charity they claimed they were supporting was committing fraud. Telemarketers, not exactly known for being the most trustworthy bunch say that if the court rules against them it will hinder their ability to raise money for charities. Say what? There's a clear difference between a charity raising money, and a telemarketing firm tossing a tiny portion of the money they raise to a charity. If the telemarketing firm doesn't make it clear that they're going to keep 85% of the money you give them, then something is wrong. I realize that most people don't know that many charity fund-raisers end up keeping a large percentage of the proceeds, but 85% goes beyond any reasonable line.
