Opportunists prey on natural disastersÂ’ victims and even those who want to help. They would
not miss any single chance that they could profit something from any kind of people by taking
advantage of their weaknesses. Victims are at their most desperate state and scammers see
this as an opportunity to deceive them.
These frauds come in various shapes and sizes as well as the scammers. They would take
advantage the helplessness of the victims, they will show up and their front door, offer help
and after they collected the payment in advance they would not show-up afterwards or worse
make a bigger damage on the victimÂ’s properties.
Following a number of cases against email frauds after a disaster, the U.S. Department of
Justice established the National Center for Disaster Fraud. Email and social medias are often
also being used, urging you to click on a photo and then would ask for many things after that
will lead you to send out money. The department insisted not to click on links instead
independently seek information about charities you are interested in helping. Better yet, go
directly to well known charities or charities that you already know.
Request of money donations are automatically considered as illegitimate, no record will be
provided if the said organization did received the money and on your part you will not have a
record for tax purposes. It is not advisable to make donations.
