Beware of charity scams related to the Orlando shooting

As if the horrific recent shooting at an Orlando nightclub wasn’t bad enough, the IRS is now warning of potential scams that aim to take advantage of people’s desire to help the victims and victims’ families. According to the IRS web site, people wishing to make contributions to charitable organizations to help healing and recovery in the wake of the shooting should do their homework ahead of time to make sure the charities to which they’re donating are legitimate.

Some unfortunately seize the opportunity inherent in such national tragedies to solicit contributions and personal information from well-meaning individuals wanting to donate to help ease others’ burdens.This fraudulent activity can’t always be prevented, but doing a bit of research before opening your wallet can help prevent the hassle and heartache that can result from getting caught up in such a scheme.
