“This is about as bad as it gets,” Coffman said. “This extended family of crooks promised to help those struggling to overcome a catastrophic illness but instead pocketed six-figure salaries. Though we will probably never recover the millions in stolen donations or in levied fines, we have been successful in shutting them down and preventing their theft of any more money from generous Coloradans.”

Attorney General Cynthia Coffman said she's pressing for legislative changes in Colorado to ensure violators can more easily be investigated and prosecuted.

 

"Because of the harm these criminals do to both legitimate charities and to those in need, I am advocating for changes to Colorado's Charitable Solicitations Act this session," she said, noting House Bill 1129 would stiffen penalties as well.
