Scam Artists Pretending to be Charities Helping Out Victims of Isaac

The Better Business Bureau is warning people to be wary of scam artists pretending to be charities collecting money to help people affected by the tropical storm Isaac. The CEO of the Better Business Bureau says people who want to help out with the victims of natural disasters such as Isaac should fully check out those soliciting donations. The Bureau also says people should avoid responding to pitches that come by email. If someone wants to give online, they should use a charity’s website. Another piece of advice the bureau gives is to be wary of clams that 100% of donations will go to victims because all charities have expenses. The Better Business Bureau advises people to look for information about charities on its website BBB.org.
