Duluth Police Warn of 'Questionable Fundraising Group'

Created: 02/05/2014 4:14 PM WDIO.com

Authorities want the public to be aware of what they call a "questionable fundraising group."

The Duluth Police Department tells Eyewitness News that in the recent days it has had citizens bringing in questionable fliers that they have received from an organization called the Police Protective Fund.

The department said the Police Protective Fund claims it is a legitimate charitable organization, but that they, nor any other local police department have ever heard of the group.

According to the authorities, reports said more than 90 percent of donations taken by the organization are skimmed by overhead, administrative and fundraising costs.
