The National Vietnam Veterans Foundation has raised 98% more money for telemarketers and infra-structure than it has to help Vietnam Veterans, CNN reports.

"At first glance, the National Vietnam Veterans Foundation is a roaring success. According to its tax filings, the charity has received more than $29 million in donations from generous Americans from 2010 to 2014 for what it calls on its website 'aiding, supporting and benefiting America's veterans and their families.'

"But look a little closer on those same filings and you can see that nearly all of those donations have been cycled back to telemarketers, leaving less than 2 percent for actual veterans and veterans' charitable causes."--David Fitzpatrick and Drew Griffin, CNN
