It's a shame that the scams get started, but here in Oregon; and, in Washington, Idaho, and Alaska, we've been working with the IRS to stop this particular problem. Its been going on for several years. It goes away and then resurfaces. We've traced some of the action to Canada, so...go figure! If it's "SAR Charities," you can go to their webpage and read about the so-called help that they'll do, but it's pretty low help. And, they discredit the SAR units for doing their good for the communities.
If you want more info, do a post yourself and we can discuss it.

Only a jackass donates money!

Not sure what you're referring to in Oregon Ernie. Locals know the good that the Butte County Sheriff's Search and Rescue unit does. The unit is completely funded by donations. The unit consists entirely of volunteers. The phone solicitation is their primary fundraiser. Here's their website for more information.
