Charity Solicitation Scam

It's hard to say no.

"Our organization needs your help!"

When there's a crisis (think hurricanes, floods and earthquakes), expect to see scam artists and fraudsters looking for a quick payout. They will tug on your heart strings and tell you that for just a few dollars a day, you too can make a difference. Even without a national disaster, charity solicitation scammers will exploit very reputable and worthy causes by calling themselves the "National Cancer Society" to cause confusion with the very real American Cancer Society or the "National Heart Institute" to cause confusion with the American Heart Institute.

What You Should Know

There are countless other charitable scam tactics. For example, many of these fraudulent callers will inform people they have won a huge sweepstakes from a well known charity. Unfortunately, the "winner" must first pay thousands of dollars to cover taxes or insurance on the prize. Or perhaps they will request a donation in the form of a used vehicle or vacation home.

What you should do

Do your homework. Ask a lot of questions. If you choose to donate, don't give payment information to telemarketers making unsolicited calls. If you are sincerely interested in helping, ask the caller to mail you information on their charity so you can review it first.
