Warning--the Louisiana flood scammers are afoot
Scam charities get right on it and send emails after such a disasters--these could contain malware. the Federal Trade Commission joins with DHS in warning about these.
--Do not open any attachments!
--Keep your antivirus programs updated.
--Verify that an organization is legitimate by calling a trusted number--check the Better Business Bureau's National Charity Report Index--google or go to http://bbb.org.
--Never assume appeals on social media are legitimate. Before texting money, confirm the phone number with the charity.
In other words--don't be a chump. People are not all good. Some, in fact, are lower than low lifes.
