A joint investigation by the Arlington Heights Daily Herald and WMAQ-TV in Chicago revealed "a ring of telemarketers who illegally solicit donations from private citizens for police officers and fire fighters. (The) stories found an organized ring of convicted criminals working at three telemarketing companies hired by police, fire and other charitable groups. State law bans ex-cons from working as telemarketers, yet we found that among those seeking contributions locally were people convicted of check theft, credit card theft, armed robbery and drug crimes."
