Beware of scam The Better Business Bureau is warning consumers to be aware of possible scam artists hoping to prey on American patriotism.
Be aware of pleas for funds to help victims of the war or those fighting in the war, appeals to patriotism and claims of government affiliation or approval, or promotions that hype up fear and panic.
The BBB reminds you to never give your credit card or Social Security number to an unknown telemarketer or in response to an unsolicited email. Check out charities online or by contacting the organization personally and request mailed information. For more information, call the BBB at 1-800-239-1642.
