NPTtv Summary: Who is William Alexander?

Note: This is a summary of a story in the latest episode of The NonProfit Times TV.\

Who is William Alexander, and why is he working at thousands of nonprofits in the US?  It looks like The Internal Revenue Service might have an explanation.

According to The IRS, more than 2,200 organizations at risk for revocation because they hadn’t filed paperwork in several years. To make matters worse, it appears someone decided to take advantage of this by sending along paper work in an attempt at identity theft for possible fundraising activities. Going by the name of William Alexander, the individual is listed as an officer at all of these nonprofits.  He also apparently works in an office building in Las Vegas.

No fraud has, of this moment, been reporting.  We can only hope that what happens in Vegas really does stay in Vegas.
