Farah Ansari was quoted in a story on Law360, “Online Fundraisers Fraught with Criminal, Civil Risks,” which focused on a viral story chronicling the legal battle between a homeless veteran and a New Jersey couple.   In the article, Ms. Ansari predicts crowdfunding may spur new legal guidelines with respect to protecting consumers and beneficiaries from fraud.  She said, “They act as a watchdog of what is happening [with regard to fundraisers] and who is asking people to donate.”
