Heads-up! It’s sickening, but cyber criminals are already exploiting the Las Vegas shooting. There are fake Facebook pages, tweets are going out with fake charity websites, and phishing emails being sent out asking for donations to bogus Vegas Charities.
Don’t fall for any scams. If you want to make a donation, you can go to http://www.charitynavigator.org before you consider giving to any charity. This free website will let you know if the charity is legitimate or a scam. It will also tell you how much of what it collects actually goes toward its charitable work and how much it spends on salaries and administration expenses.
Do not click on any links in emails or text you might get. Whatever you see in the coming weeks about Las Vegas disaster relief… THINK BEFORE YOU CLICK.
Everyone stay safe out there!
