What appears to be a legitimate flyer from a company called United Resource Marketing, Inc., is actually a hidden pyramid scheme aimed at stealing money from well-intentioned donors. The seemingly legitimate flyer instructs people how to become independent fundraisers for The Salvation Army. What donors don’t realize is that The Salvation Army does not endorse or benefit from the false United Resource Marketing, Inc. document that includes authentic Salvation Army logos and images, as well as the phrase:

The United Resource Marketing Fundraiser plan is a Gifting program that helps the Salvation Army and Individuals throughout the United States through Gifting which helps raise well needed money for family and friends.
