BBB warns of breast cancer scams
WEST MICHIGAN (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - October is designated as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Better Business Bureau is offering up some tips, so you don't get scammed.
Never give cash. If you write a check, make it out to the charity, not an individual. Keep records of your donations with receipts.
Never give your credit card number or personal information in response to unsolicited donation requests.
Beware of high-pressure requests for on the spot donations.
Think twice if a charity is unwilling to answer questions about their operations, finances and programs.
Read product labels carefully. A trust worthy company should disclose a charity name and the amount of sale benefiting the charity.
