US: IRS FIGHTS FRAUD AIMED AT CHARITIES, JOINS INTERNATIONAL AWARENESS WEEK

On 19 October, an article from Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner said that the IRS is combating fraud by once again joining organisations around the world to highlight the 3rd annual International Charity Fraud Awareness Week, 19-23 October.  The International Charity Fraud Awareness Week (ICFAW) brings together everyone involved in the charity and not-for-profit sectors to raise awareness of and share good practices for tackling fraud and cybercrime.  The event’s Charity Fraud Hub features helpful documents, free tutorials, videos, case studies and on-demand webinars, including, ‘COVID-19 and charity fraud: what to watch out for and how to stay safe.’ Charities and anyone else interested in fighting fraud can also take part in the ICFAW social media campaign using #charityfraudout.

I had omitted the following link (as it did not seem to generate much interest!), but it seemed time to add it again and say that, if you would like to make a (polite) gesture and help me with my removal and computer costs, I have a page at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/KoIvM842y
