I really want to believe this group is legit.

But I have some questions:

How come none of the people whose debt has been abolished have come forward? So far the only verification we have that this has happened is from Strike Debt, even though they say they've sent notes to the people whose debt they've abolished. Where are those people?

CNN reports, "The organization spent about $21,000 to purchase the debt, using money raised from supporters." Back in December, they claimed they were poised to retire $9,000,000 in medical debt having raised over $350,000. Where's the other ~$325K? Even accounting for operating expenses, why hasn't more debt been bought and abolished?

I hate to be so cynical about an organization that's trying to do good, but before I send money to anyone, I want to see some solid proof that they are run competently and have some kind of accountability. I've worked in non-profits my whole life and cannot believe these folks don't have people up their ass demanding to see their books.
