“Just a Penny!” UHO Charity a Scam

Those guys all over the city standing behind the big empty water cooler jug yelling at you to give “just one penny!” have finally been revealed as a scam.  UHO (the United Homeless Organization) doesn’t collect money for homeless shelters or soup kitchens – what it does is it lets you rent the table, tablecloth, water jug & red UHO apron for $15 per 4-hour shift and any extra money ‘donated’ goes right into your pocket (sometimes more than $80).  The rental fee goes straight to the head guys who rake in over $100,000 a year. YUCK.
