Beware of email scams for Typhoon Haiyan victim donations
SEATTLE -- Email scams that solicit the wiring of money to victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines are surfacing and donors should give cautiously over the next few weeks, authorities warned Wednesday. “Unfortunately scammers look to exploit our compassion for helping others during disasters,” state Attorney General Bob Ferguson said. “Take time to research the charity you’d like to donate to so your hard-earned money reaches those in need, not a scammer’s wallet.”
