Salvation Army gets big donation, but it's fake
Salvation Army officials in Pittsburg, Kansas, were already thinking of ways to spend a five-thousand dollar check put in one of the red kettles when they got a call they were victims of a scam. Officials say workers sorting through donations were quick to deposit the check after finding it. And they say they were already discussing ways to used the money when they were told the account it was written under was closed. The charity isn't saying who wrote the check, and it says it doesn't plan to prosecute him or her.
