Donor beware: not all clothing drop boxes are what they seem

Check those boxes before you drop off those clothes. Apparently, not all of them belong to charitable organizations. In actuality, they belong to for-profit businesses that sell secondhand items.
Scary isn’t it. You think you’re helping someone but in reality… you’re lining someone else’s pockets.
And no it’s not illegal. Just misleading marketing. Bastards.
