U.S. attorney warns of scammers in wake of Oso landslide
OSO --Embattled Snohomish County residents should be aware of scammers trying to take advantage of their misfortune in the wake of the devastating Oso landslide, the U.S. District Attorney's office said Monday. U.S. Attorney Jenny Durkan warned residents hoping to donate to local charities and organizations claiming to help victims' families of the Oso slide to be wary of scams. Though many organizations were legitimate, Durkan said, a time of tragedy unfortunately brings out some unscrupulous individuals trying to make a quick buck.
