"Groups of young adults stand on street corners in New York City and sell M&M candies for charity. They claim to live in a homeless shelter, to be raising money to keep kids off drugs and to be earning points towards a High School equivalency diploma. After two months of getting to know the kids and observing them undercover, we were able to prove the whole enterprise is a fraud. They simply keep the money, each making up to $400 cash tax-free, every day."
