Don't Get Scammed with Tsunami Relief Charity Scams

It’s difficult to watch the news of the Japan earthquake and tsunami without being compelled to do something, and the quickest way to help is to make a donation. But before you reach for your wallet, make sure you don’t fall for bogus charity websites. Sadly, they’re out there and waiting to make a buck.

You can avoid charity scams easily by visiting Charity Navigator, a site that lists and evaluates over 5,000 charities. The site breaks down the charities into different categories, so you can divvy up your generosity to different causes.  And if you’re donating to the tsunami relief efforts, they also provide “giving tips” so you can make the most out of your donation.
