ED Magedson – Founder
FirstGiving333 Bryant Street, Suite 140 Internet United States of America
A friend was collecting donations for a local charity online. I clicked on the link to the friend's fundraising page which brought me to FirstGiving. Since the page displayed https in the address window, I trusted the site with my credit card information. I had some problems with the session at the site. Despite correspondence with FirstGiving, I did not receive acknowledgments of my donation and finally gave up. Since I never received acknowledgments from the intended charity, I assumed the transaction had completely failed. Yesterday, when I saw my credit card statement, I discovered that FirstGiving not only took the donation fee but the whole donation.
