Police Warn of Unethical Solicitations

From Times Staff Reports

Unethical charitable solicitations are rampant in Los Angeles, especially during the holidays, the Police Department said Friday.

Although many charities operate within legal regulations, they do not operate ethically, police said. For example, some use names that are similar to well-known charities.

The department called the number of victims "voluminous," but said it had no figures because "the vast majority do not realize they have been victimized."
