Do Not EVER Donate Your Money To These Guys

 FAIR. Otherwise known as FAIRNESS AND ACCURACY IN REPORTING. They are scum bags.

They offer up a book if you donate $35.00 or more. What they don't tell you is that you have to request in the "comments" section of PayPal to get it. They don't tell you this up front but in a little asterisk hidden on the begathon letter. And they tell you in the plea that you can request not to get the book. "Hide it in the fine print" is their philosophy.


We complained to PayPal, The New York Better Business Bureau and I unsubscribed from their list.

DON'T deal with them. They complain about corporate media, bought and paid for politicians, banking scams and they pull one themselves.

Sorry you got ripped off, sadly it is very common on the internet. I deleted my paypal account because I don't like their terms of service, which sadly means you will not get your money back. *hugs you tight*

Did you put this on Twitter? Complaints get a lot of mileage on twitter, sometimes.

I just saw the page, it is pretty clear. In the first section, it is a drop down menu, book or no book. Paypal is different, so you have to comment. If you click to the paying by paypal section, it says it right there.

I guess the letter is different but the website is very clear.

They refunded my money but I still felt mislead by the letter. I've been felt burned by charities lately, so many of them turning out to be money making schemes. I rarely use twitter.

I'm glad they refunded your money, at least!
