The End Result
Be particularly cautious of people/organizations asking for donations via PayPal especially if they are from out of state.
Why It Matters
Few things bring out scammers like a natural disaster. Please be careful who you donate money to during these times.
How You Can Help
There are official organizations whose purpose is to help in times of need so be leery of persons or groups you have never heard of. I know everyone wants to help and this is precisely the sentiment that scam artists prey on during times like these. Seek out local groups to support if that is what you would like to do. Be cautious of people/groups coming in from out of the area. We are doing what we can to keep our citizens safe and aware.
Donations are being accepted by the Red Cross and EAMC and to the Community Fund of East Alabama.
