Media across the country have carried the story of how all 50 state attorneys general and the Federal Trade Commission came together to crack down on organizations perpetrating fraud against our veterans. This well-coordinated effort, Operation Donate with Honor, is not only a success in and of itself. It also reveals an expanding and sophisticated platform for future anti-fraud efforts in the nonprofit sphere.
The result of years of painstaking work by career prosecutors on both the state and federal level, this initiative highlights the efforts of the National Association of State Charity Officials (NASCO). A regular visit to NASCO's improved website is in order for anyone interested in nonprofit fraud prosecutions
