BBB Warns Donors To Look Out For Earthquake Relief Scams

(Rockford, IL) — The Better Business Bureau in Rockford is warning consumers about fake Nepal earthquake relief efforts. BBB Director Dennis Horton told WIFR-TV that scammers are out to take advantage of those who truly want to help quake victims. He says the best way to help is to donate money to a well known humanitarian group with history of providing help in disasters and other crisis situations. Horton also advises potential donors to be cautious of charities that are not quick to answer questions about their operations, finances and programs.
