Hurricane Dorian Victims Charity or Donation Scams

Would you share this Article with others?

Scammers may take advantage of the devastation caused Hurricane Dorian. The scammers may take advantage by creating fake charity or donation websites to steal money, personal and financial information. Cybercriminals may also create fake and malicious email messages which may appear as if they came from legitimate charitable organizations asking for donations, to infect their potential victims' computers with viruses, ransomware, or malware. And, the scammers may create bogus social media pages and posts, and fraudulent charitable organizations with numbers to call. Remember, charity or donation scams are common after major natural disasters because scammers know that people are eager to help the victims.

Donate to charities you know and trust. And, never click on links or open attachments in emails unless you know who sent them and what they are. Opening attachments, even in e-mails that seem to be from friends, family members, or legitimate organizations can infect your computer or mobile device with viruses, spyware, Trojan horse and other malware that cybercriminals use to spy on you and steal your information.

Remember, be careful when sending your money; you want to help the victims and not to make the scammers rich by taking advantage of the tragedy. To help those affeceted by Hurricane Dorian, you may donate to the charitable organizations below.

    You only list two, although it is common knowledge that the CEO of the RED CROSS is paid handsomely. I have contributed to Salvation Army because they are prepared to feed and cloth when disaster hits.

    No big salaried CEO. I also contributed to Samaritan Purse because they had hundreds of volunteer and a plane/hospital on the ground as soon as given the clearance. There are other groups doing work . The SALVATION ARMY IS AWESOME.
