Coalition Against Breast Cancer, Long Island Charity, Ordered To Shut Down After Scamming Donors (VIDEO)

A judge has ordered a fundraising firm in Long Island to halt operations after scamming donors into giving nearly $10 million towards a bogus cancer charity.

The Daily News reports the Coalition Against Breast Cancer, managed by firm Campaign Center Inc., raised $10 million between 2005 and 2011, but pocketed 85 cents for every dollar made.

Only $48,000 of the funds raised went towards research. The CABC paid for just 40 women to receive mammograms.

In 2011, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman filed a lawsuit against both the CABC and Campaign Center Inc.
