Report from NY attorney general Schneiderman says telemarketers raised record $250m in 2013; claims nonprofits received only about 38% of it.
"While the person who calls you to ask for a charitable donation is probably representing a non-profit organization, that telemarketer may be employed by a for-profit fundraising company hired by the charity. But just how much of what you’re giving ends up going to the charity, and how much goes to line the telemarketer’s pockets?" -- Chris Morran, Consumerist.com
