Beware of fake charities

While Hurricane Sandy has come and gone, leaving the East Coast (and the Northeast in particular) in rough shape, scammers have launched fake charity sites to accept donations.

Donations that go directly into the scammers' pockets.

If you're looking to help out in the aftermath, be careful of the charities you give to. If it isn't a charity you've heard of soliciting your donation, just simply find another charity to give you.

If you're very concerned, you'll never go wrong donating the the Red Cross.
