Scammers Likely To Use Okla. Tornado For Donations
The nasty side of nature has once again reared its ugly head by way of
the deadly and destructive force of a category four tornado. Scammers are
likely to prey on the sympathy of the public to solicit donations,
according to Bucks County Director of Consumer Affairs, Mike Bannon.
"These unscrupulous people will call people as way to essentially
obtain money for their own gain. The best way to make a donation toward
the helping people in Oklahoma is through the American Red Cross. They
will likely be the lead organization on relief efforts."
Bannon adds, anyone who wants to donate should visit the Red Cross
website, and never make a donation over the phone or via e-mail. Bannon
was a guest Tuesday morning with Darryl Berger on WNPV's AM-Edition.
