The charity racket...a licence to print money.

https://www.independent.ie/irish-news/c ... 48072.html

An Irish businessman whose company runs an online fundraising platform for charities around the world has “gone to ground” with €3.8m owed to client charities.

Among the international charities owed money by Peter Conlon’s firm are the UNHCR, the Red Cross and Save the Children.

In his affidavit which was opened to the court, Mr Kirby said the platform took in €5.8m in donations between March 2016 and September 2017. It took in another €396,000 from December 12, 2017 to January 12, 2018.

Rossa Fanning, SC for the liquidator, said in the past week Mr Kirby had discovered there was a €3.8m deficit in funds that ought to have been remitted to the charities. The court heard there is currently just €357,000 in the company’s bank account.

Not actually a charity.

A grossly insolvent company, with outstanding judgements (from as far back as 2011) that nobody should have touched with a shitty stick.

The auditors even had a disclaimer on the last set of accounts.

Here they are if you want some dismal reading

https://www.scribd.com/document/370366969/Ammando-Internet-Services-Limited-Accounts-Feb-2016

Here's the mighty Peter Conlon talking himself up in 2015. Already ready to run in Switzerland?

Quote:
After leaving presentation college he studied commerce in Rathmines and went on to qualify as both an accountant and a barrister.

"I think being an entrepreneur was in my blood.", he says. "Accountancy and law gave me the sophistication of tools for business."


https://www.independent.ie/business/iri ... 04019.html

The company secretary was a Michael Conlan. Here is his resignation form filed in January this year. It notes he has no address for Peter Conlan

https://www.scribd.com/document/370368327/Michael-Conlon-Resignation-from-Ammando

He lives in one of these nice houses

https://www.google.ie/maps/place/6+Wain ... d-6.308471

He seems to be a hypotherapist by profession

Quote:
Michael Conlon offers hypnotherapy using the Marisa Peer Method. Only one session is often needed but some clients need two, three or more sessions. ... The recommendations by Michael Conlon are not intended to substitute any diagnosis and care by a qualified GP.

Oh, the company was set up by Arthur Cox.

You're right - not actually a charity but then neither are most of them in the strict sense and spirit of the word. They're mostly rackets - with highly remunerated CEO's and Financial controllers etc. Call that cynical but the evidence is fairly overwhelming - we're the charity capital of the world.

I could post dozens of news stories like this....

https://www.irishtimes.com/news/ireland ... -1.3051527
Ms Duggan told RTÉ’s Morning Ireland that she became aware of grave issues and irregularities at the charity shortly after being appointed last October. She brought these to the attention of the board and recommended “corrective action”.
A big concern was that a number of financial transactions, totalling more than €60,000, were not being reported in the management accounts seen by the board, she said.


https://www.irishtimes.com/news/social- ... -1.3232987
The inspectors found that Ataxia Ireland’s chief executive did not inform the charity’s other trustees of the existence of the €84,009 payments to her parents as trustees and that these payments were in conflict with the Revenue’s stated position on trustee remuneration.
Poor financial control of millions of euro of taxpayers' money across a range of health agencies has been exposed in a series of audits.

https://www.independent.ie/irish-news/h ... 92684.html
High-profile children's charity Barnardos is among the agencies criticised for some weaknesses which could result in financial loss or error. Run by chief executive Fergus Finlay, it received €37m in State funding between 2012 and 2014.
In 2015, Mr Finlay was on a salary of €117,951, while the HSE scale was €110,183.
The HSE internal auditors found "unclear" information was provided to the board of Barnardos and the media about the chief executive's salary and donations.

Not an isolated incident:

Quote:
Oxfam: fresh claims that staff used prostitutes in Chad -- Guardian

Oxfam was hit with new allegations of staff involvement with prostitution on Saturday, after claims that employees at a second country mission had used sex workers while living at the organisation’s premises.

Former staff who worked for the charity in Chad alleged that women believed to be prostitutes were repeatedly invited to the Oxfam team house there, with one adding that a senior member of staff had been fired for his behaviour in 2006.
