There’s certainly been no shortage of disasters in 2020. Scammers are taking advantage of these events, and our compassion and generosity, to try and steal money. You may be approached on the street or at your front door. Scammers may also set up fake websites which look similar to those operated by real charities or contact you by phone or email to request a donation.
Watch for the warning signs of charity scams:
There are many worthy organizations that will use your donation wisely. Make sure your money goes to them and not to scammers.
