Very true all over the place as well, I would think - it is up to us all to check these people out and make as sure as we can that they really do the work they say. (260 though - that is amazing!).

If people would mean what they say and say what they mean then we would not be in this situation!

Sadly there are way too many scams out there. It's our job to weed them out so we can make sure our funds go to protect wildlife.
Thanks Jill

Scumbags. But unfortunately, every charity will attract shysters to have similar sounding names to try to funnel some donations their way...

Scams and fraud are so destructive. It is so frustrating the damage they do to legitimate causes.
