Description

The investigation exposed how a network of charities orchestrated a scheme to move more than $130 million in cash and goods from one charity to another while doing almost no charitable work. By manipulating federal tax laws and taking advantage of lax federal oversight, these charities inserted themsevles into the government's annual charity drive (the largest of its kind in the world) and reaped millions of dollars in donations from unsuspecting federal employees.
