Earthquake Scams

Hundreds agencies continue rushing to the aid of Japan.

Unfortunately, some scammers are also jumping on the bandwagon. The American Red Cross Chapter out of St. Joseph says you should be careful before sending money to any organization offering to send it to the earthquake and tsunami-ravaged country. Executive director Kevin Kirby says large amounts of money are often given at times of devastating disasters. He says the public should be cautious and ask the charity directly how money will be spent on disaster relief.
