Beware of typhoon charity scams

INDIANAPOLIS — Many legitimate charitable groups are springing into action after the recent typhoon struck the Philippines, but Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller said so are scammers.

Among his suggestions, donate to established organizations with a track record of organizing and providing disaster relief; initiate the donation yourself, rather than responding to online, direct mail or phone solicitations asking for money and watch out for charities with similar sounding names. Some phony charitable organizations use names that are very similar to those of respected organizations.

Also, visit www.CharityNavigator.org to assist in identifying legitimate relief organizations.
