Derek's Wish721 Cecilyn Way, Sacramento, California United States of America
This report is to warn anyone that is planning to, or has, donated money, products, CARS and time to Cyndie French (alias, Cindy Madsen, Cyndie Jolene Morris, Cindy J. Morris, Cheryl Moffe, Cyndie French-Raney, Cheryl J.Zimdahl) and her charity, Dereks Wish . The address listed for Dereks Wish is
Dereks Wish claims to be a Non-profit organization #20-5855119. In reality, the Non-profit status has been REVOLKED by the IRS since March 15, 2011. This was revoked due to the fact that Cyndie French (President) has never filed any paperwork showing where any of the funds have gone or been used since 2007. Cyndie French has a Paypal account (which also states it is Non-profit) and collects money directly into a bank account (Derek Madsen Fund) at Chase/Washington Mutual Bank, account #3110191727, located at
Phone 916 326-4500. Cyndie French also continues to have fundraisers.
The website www.Dereks-wish.com states that this is a legitimate Non-profit organization. It is not. The State of California Department of Justice has listed this organization as delinquent, due to the fact that it has been REVOLKED by IRS. I called the IRS (877 829-5500) and verified today that Derek's Wish is NO longer a tax exempt organization. Anyone who has participated in any donation, is not eligible for any deductions. There is also a Facebook page that states that Derek's Wish is a non-profit and directs people to a paypal account for donations.
I recently lost my sister to cancer and in no way minimize the fact that this woman lost her child to cancer in 2006. This does not allows her to defraud people, who want and think, they are helping other families with cancer.
Two people I know, met this woman, Cyndie French, on a dating site. This website has always been a good, safe dating site. She dated and ...... with both of these men, all the time, asking for money and car donations. I checked with the California DOJ and she has received at least 8 car donations. After she got money out of them, she dumped them and went on to her next victim. She is still active on site. (June 5-12, 2012).
It is very obvious that she is using this money for herself. I believe, the IRS is investigating her currently for fraud, diverting donations for personal use, fundraising fraud, internet fraud and charity fraud.
Per IRS- (6/13/2012)
"Dereks Wish has been classified by the IRS as a disqualified organization, it cannot or does not accept donations, is not recognized by the IRS as a charity, or is not in good standing with federal and state regulators"
