BBB Gives Tips For Donating to Hurricane Relief

ILLINOIS (RFD) — Before you make a donation to help those people affected by Hurricane Dorian, take the time to see if the charity is legitimate. With disasters comes fundraising efforts. And with fundraising efforts come scam artists, according to the Better Business Bureau.

Investigator Don O’Brien says before you donate, check to see if the charity already has “boots on the ground.”

O’Brien says social media has made it easier for scammers to get your money. He says be wary of donation seekers utilizing media such as Twitter or Facebook.
